I got this ball about 2 years back with the intention of being able to play up the boards rather than always playing deep.  This ball is effective for the lane conditions it was designed for and has a nice hard arc on the backend.  Mine is drilled with the pin above and exactly between my grips and the CG slightly kicked out to the right.  This ball makes a pretty drastic move off of dry boards and it breaks ok with a medium pattern.  It does hate heavier oil and will simply skid.  I found some success throwing it on the PBA Cheetah pattern recently.  My only complaint is that it tends to leave more ten pins than my other equipment.  Overall, 9/10.
