All I can say is WOW !!!!!!! 

Normal House shot 41ft.

Rev rate 350

Finish OOB
I drilled up a Marauder Madness yesterday afternoon and I have a review of the ball.
I drilled the Madness with a pin under the ring finger and the Pin 4" to Pap.  I kicked the Cg right just about 1  1/2 " from grip center.  I had league last night and I thought I would give it a go with the Madness.  Well what I found and got from this Madness is a real smooth roll with a very nice arcing motion with the ball finishing through the 8 pin off the deck.  I lined up on 22 and played right around 15 -9 and the ball was just amazing.  It was a very controllable strong arc.  I didn't not have to move my feet all night.
I had control of the pocket all night.
   Scores were,  289/258/279 for a 826 series.  I am loving the DV8 equipment and I haven't found one that doesn't roll and react exceptionally well and I won't find one either.

This is a must in your aresenal

COMMENTS

Tried the MM on 2 distinct house patterns.  A high volume 40' THS with some play on it and a fresh 41' THS with a lighter volume and some of the strongest backends I've seen.

The MM performed admirably on both.  On the heavier patters with some play, it cleared the heads fine, but really picked up in the mids and stared a long smooth arc through the pin deck.  This heavier pattern was quite juicy and I was playing fairly close to the dry (fading 10 to 3-4), but it still picked up and continued through the pins with a great hit.

On the lighter pattern with the flying backends, the MM was strong enough to tone down the reaction in the dry, but still had more than enough pop to hit.

Overall, this is a great symmetrical benchmark.  I could see a player carrying a couple of these with varying layouts/surfaces and have the tools for a large percentage of the conditions they see.

Sadly, it looks like this is on the chopping block, but if you can pick one up, I would highly recommend it.
