Drilled this shiny red guy with a 3.5 by 4 layout with the pin just above my finger line.  Required a 1" weight hole 2" deep to bring back to 1/2 oz side and 3/4 oz finger.  Weight hole was placed on VAL in thumb quadrant.

First of all, I love weak coverstock balls with strong layouts and this is no different.  Compared to my 357, this ball rolls at approximately the same length with less of a snap motion on the backend.

I like to stay soft with my ball speed and get a clean release which makes me prefer bals with weak coverstocks.  However I find it necessary to to apply aggressive drillings to help make the corner.

Playing between 2nd and 3rd arrow out to 7, this ball was unstoppable.  Can't wait to try my NE 10.

Dyno-Thane Crisis Solid

First, I’d like to thank Billy and the boys at Dyno-Thane for sending me out the new Crisis Solid.  Given the specs on the Crisis Solid calling for extra length with a medium flare, I wanted a reaction to maximize the ball’s strengths on light-oil/scorched tournament conditions. This being said, I left the ball in boxed condition and went with a layout of 4 ½” from my PAP with the mass bias located on my VAL (my favorite symmetrical layout).  I left 1/4 ounces of positive side weight from the 15/16” counter-hole positioned 1” past my PAP.

I tested the Crisis Solid on both a late-night burned up house shot and on your typical medium-oiled house condition and found that the ball works well on both surfaces but the drier the lane the better the results.  This is not a ball that takes too well to a lot of swing but for those who have the wherewithal to play tighter lines, or if you’re a down and in player to begin with, then the Crisis Solid is an absolute must-have in your bag.          

My evaluation broken down on a 10-point scale is as follows:


The Crisis Solid provides the best dry lane reaction I’ve tested to date.  If you are one of those bowlers that panic and purchases a plastic ball during tournaments because everything in your bag hooks too much—and you still can’t score because it’s plastic, I don’t feel sorry for you. This is the best dry-lane/tournament ball on the market today and priced to move—not to mention it looks like a red fireball you get from a jaw-breaker machine. Outstanding job Dyno-Thane!!

Drilled my ball standard label leverage. This ball hooks more than I anticipated, but does not over hook. On lighter house or sport shots it is outstanding. Reacts quickly when finding dry boards. Very controllable arc and excellent hitting power. Handles second shift carry-down reasonably well, too.
My "A-game" is down-n-in and this ball fits my style nicely.
