I got one of these balls last week because they have been retired and was able to use over the last two evenings in practice. The ball is 14lbs with strong lable drill to go long and have a lot of backend. I was amazed at the hit on the little silver ball. Hit is as good as or better than my new Uranium. I see myself adapting to this ball much better than the Uranium. It seems very similar to my Gold nugget actually. I can throw it harder if its dry and get it down there, I am curious how it will do in my league play. Very happy with this purchase as it seems to find the pocket as well as my GN and with just as good a carry as any ball I have owned. If you can get one before they are all gone. Also a very attractive ball going down the lane, like a big handsome man!

Didn't buy this ball, but tested one that I was thinking of buying from a league bowler that I'm friends with. Specs:

Drilled pin under ring, cg kicked right
Box finish

I shot a low 700 the first time out of the box with this ball. It is one of the more unique saws that I've thrown, and I've thrown plenty. I liked the SD because it allowed me to do what my XL didn't like to do, go deep. My XL, which was drilled pin axis, was good for going up the boards on lighter conditions, but it really didn't like going deep inside that much, although it could. With the SD I was able to stand left and stroke the ball from deep inside and just watch it come ripping back. The SD went a bit further down the lane than the XL, but the backend was sick. This was by far the snappiest buzzsaw that I've thrown, yet the carry did not suffer. I think that this was a great matchup of core and coverstock, and it gives an option that a lot of other Lane 1 balls did not. If I didn't have too much gear already I would certainly have bought it. If you like to go deep without having to rip the cover off of the ball, pick this one up, if you can find one.
Bowling is without a doubt the dumbest, most pointless, most idiotic excuse for a game that has ever been invented. So, what time are we bowling tomorrow?
