COMMENTS

Likes:  Personally I've always had success with the Gas Mask core and the Black Widow Ghost is no exception. This pearl covered ball just shapes well and goes through the pins well. I matched it up with my Black Widow Pink and although they are similar, they not the same. For me, the Pink picks up a little sooner and shapes in more of an arc while the Ghost continues a little longer and is a little more flippy. For me this will be a medium oil ball and should work great on most house shots.

I drilled the Black Widow Ghost 70 x 4.5" x 35 to be a strong rolling, yet snappy asym pearl, and that's exactly what I got. On my leagues 41 foot sport shot, it clears the heads, picks up the mid-lane just enough, and explodes on the back, with super continuation. On the typical house shot, just toss it at the gutter and watch it peel off the spot hard and fast, throwing pins everywhere. The Black Widow Ghost is a perfect complement to the Black Widow 2.0 Solid. I did a side by side lefty/righty video ball review with my Frankie & Ding Dong Show co-host here, check it out:

COMMENTS

Likes: This is almost like the Pink Widow, But just a pinch stronger in the roll phase.    Very clean through the front and mids with a smooth yet strong direction change down lane.  I noticed that the Ghost Pearl keeps the pins lower than the Pink Widow did but not sure if that was a desired intent on making it.   The Core is obviously the same and the cover is a pinch different but still in the same family with Aggression Pearl.  I really canít say I love this ball enough, A true winner in the looks category and a stud on the performance side.  If you donít have this Widow in the bag, you automatically start the game 15 pins down!  Its that Good!

The Black Widow Ghost is a very strong assymetrical pearl that bowlers will absolutely need in their bag.  Ball is very clean through front and midlane and has a super continuation flip motion in the backend.  This ball will definitely be in the running for ball of the year and every tournament bowler will love this ball on tough lane conditions

Likes: What can i say, it is another amazing Widow!  My Ghost is super clean through the heads and strong in the back ends. only have about 12 games on it or so and shot 814 with it.  Doesn't over hook, doesn't underhook.  Really reliable ball! This is my new benchmark ball.  Great for house shots for me!  You need to get one asap.

Dislikes: Gets dirty easy.  Must clean after every session.

Beautiful and Deadly.  With the combination of the trusty Gas Mask Core, and  wrapped in the ectoplasmic white Aggression Pearl coverstock and finished at 500/1000/1500 Siaair  polished with Crown Factory Compound, this ball will provide length on the lanes for every bowler. Lower rev rates get the benefits of the torque of the gas mask cores, and higher rev rates get to take advantage of the length of the cover te get the power to the pins. The perfect combination to please all styles.  The Ghost allows me to keep my hand out of the ball on lower volumes and not sacrifice the recovery down lane, thank you Gas Mask Core. It also lets me hit the ball a little harder when I'm playing aggressive and still get through the fronts, thank you pearl coverstock.  The best of both worlds.  Nothing Hits Like A Hammer.

The black widow ghost is Sexy! Not only are you getting the legendary black widow performance that youíve come to expect from the black widow line but this ball also looks good on the lane, on the ball rack, in your bag, and especially on the shelf. This ball will be clean through the fronts just like other black widows but where the Ghost caught my attention is how close it is to the original black widow. Not too snappy down lane but not short on movement or power either. Thereís a reason this ball has been on tv so much this year!

When EBI was purchased by Brunswick, I tried my hardest to find another Black Widow Pink to hold on to. Now, that is not a necessity with the Black Widow Ghost. It is a perfect Black Widow pearl, with great ease through the fronts, with a very strong and predictable motion on the back. When compared directly to the Pink Widow, the Ghost is just a tiny bit smoother. Still was able to stand on the same board and look at the same target. Both balls were laid out the same, 70 by 4 1/4 by 50, which places the pin directly in my ring finger. The Ghost is a very eye-catching piece on or off the lanes!

The Gas Mask Core is back! Drilled pin up and pin down, itís my BW Pink only a bit stronger! Donít hesitate to scuff the cover with a 2000 pad to take some shine off. Great ball out the bag with surface and transition ball. First week with it, I shot 300. Layout: Pin Up - 55 x 4.5 x 30 Pin Down - 65 x 3.5 x 75

This is the most skip/flip ball I have ever thrown. As a player who does not hook the ball a bunch, this ball is a must. It enables me to move left and throw it right when pattern breaks down. This has been my go-to ball for the last few games of the block.
