My "Wasp" is 15 pounds with a 3-3.5" pin. I drilled it according to Elite Drilling Specs #3 (same as I drill everything). I have a high rev rate and high ball speed and that was the suggest ball layout from the Elite website.

I love this thing. Aggressive even arching motion, medium in length, it works on league patterns and dominates on heavier tournament patterns. This ball seems to recover really well. I find that I can miss my mark by a few boards either direction and still end up close enough to the pocket to not leave a split. If you are going to throw this ball on league night keep the speed up, it likes to hook (I keep it between 17-18 mph on a league pattern).

Elite bowling balls are expensive and I have a few. Some I don't think are worth it, but this one was definitely worth the extra cash.
