The Ebonite Real One is the real deal!!!  This Real One reads the mid lane and makes an aggressive motion on the backend.  My Real One is pin up and I've had some success with it as of late.  I have also drilled this ball for numerous customers who have done nothing but give positive feedback and rave about how versatile the Real One really is.  Visit your local pro shop and "OPEN THE BOX"  You won't be disappointed!!!!

 The real one takes me back to the days of throwing all the One series balls! IF you had success in the past with these bowling balls then you will love having this ball in your hand. Even if you are new to the One line, this ball will have hooked and wanting more. It has reads the mid lane very well and has a strong continues motion on the back end. It definitely hits the pins harder then any of my other polished bowling balls. After getting a weeks worth of games on this ball I shot 300-288-266 for 854!!! Mine is drilled pin up and works amazing on THS. It is versatile enough to start on the fresh and still be able to move in and get the same motion as the lanes dry up. GET THIS BALL IN YOUR BAG!!!

Real One (Box Surface and 1000 and 500/2000) – Pin above the bridge CG to the right a little MB marking less then half an inch from the middle of my thumb.  Positive Axis Point  4 3/8 right 1/2 up.

House Shot Patterns Fresh and Broken Down and Athens
The Real One took some time to grow on me during demo days I would watch others roll with it and I thought it is missing something, the read through the heads was a little too much the shape off the friction was much too much.  Then I watched a few people play deeper with it and that is when I could see the reaction from the ball to over.  I went with a different layout to get the ball to start a little sooner then what I was seeing from other people.  I was surprised to see how much it started in the mid-lane and still stayed smooth then once it hit friction I had a nice smooth arc to the head pin that is something I love to see from a bowling ball.  I knocked the polish off to see how smooth it could be with still being early.  Adding surface to the Real One is the best thing I could have done, I am able to play deeper inside and allow the ball to start up sooner and NOT burn up the finish through the pins is strong as well.  When you get this ball don’t be afraid to change the surface if the box surface is not doing enough or doing too much for you, hopefully you will see a different reaction that you like.
When you get a chance please check out the track recommendation tool however before doing so I will strongly suggest you go to your local pro shop and ask for assistance with getting your Rev Rate, Tilt, Axis Rotation and Ball Speed.

This was a great rolling ball then, as in the original One series, and it is again. We had sold a lot of the Original One's back when they made their debut and to have the opportunity to "win" a NIB One and still get a Real One was a great selling point.

I drilled mine with a 50 x 4.5 x 40 layout, hole down in the p3 area. Left the cover alone and this made for an excellent league ball. The rg on this ball is low which helps the core get started with ease, and the polish allowed it to get down lane and still store extra energy. Tournament players will like this ball for the core alone. All cover-stock's can be manipulated on the fly, but to have a nice controllable core that rolls this stable should be a desired shape for all players.
