The GB13.3 hybrid cover is a great match for this core. For me, this ball is excellent for league patterns with medium to heavier oil.  It revs up nicely off my hand, and gets through the fronts cleanly.  It picks up the midlane well, and makes a strong arcing move with great continuation through the pins.  I’m able to use this ball for an entire league session as I can stay close enough to the friction to keep a good reaction.  Higher rev rates will see a more pronounced skid/flip type reaction, and it can also be more condition specific for these players.  One other great quality about this ball is that it tells me when it’s time to shell down, because the weak 10 will start to show up.  If you were looking to buy only one new ball for league play, the Real One is a great choice.
