If you are looking for that "Oil Cutter" ball, the G-Force is the "Bomb". The G-Force is a serious oil buster. It will cut through the heavy oil. I was throwing a small swing shot in league when every one else couldnt get their stuff to wrinkle.

But on the other side of the coin. When you encounter dry or burnt up track area it becomes touchy. This ball wasnt designed for dry lanes either.

I think this ball will be excellent for heavy oil shots.

Warren Heady drilled this ball for me.If you want a ball that plays in oil and hits like a truck I would suggest this ball.I also would have Warren drill it for you.Just tell him what you want the ball to do and it does it.His address is warren@hebowlingsupply.com.

This ball is a must have for heavy oiled lane conditions
My house is a typical house shot. Oiled heavy from 5 to 5, dry outside. Oiled to 35'-38' buffed out to 40'-42' + wood lane. Clean backends. This ball holds a nice continuous motion to the pocket and even starts to rev in the oil. Once it hits the dry, it moves.
Not sharply, but very evenly and covers alot of boards. I could play it inside and swing it out as far as I wanted and no problem coming back. Ball just keeps on coming and no roll out. Carries exceptionally well also.
Great ball for oily ^_^

CONCLUSION
Bowled the first house KS State tournament @ thunderbird Lanes, wood surface, and found the ball very forgiving / finished extra hard with clean backends. Ball had a lite polish 1000 grit abrilon pad.Shot 219,201,203 singles/229,193,238 doubles.
Next day shot @ Seneca lanes, synthetic surface. Lite buffed 800 grit abrilon pad and W/clean backends found this ball too be aggressive. I should have left it polished, but didn't have time to repolish it once we started bowling. I just switch to my Uranium Solid. 1st game 217 then switched because I was haveing to throw it so hard and couldn't control it through the break point. Overall performance was movement like my Uranium Solid but 7-10 boards stronger. Track was normal/high with 4/5 flare rings 1/8" apart in both houses. I was told that I could have a X-hole added for more flare as my ending static weight was 7/8 oz side WT. , but gonna wait on that till I get some real oil/flood lanes... Can't go wrong with this ball in your bag! handmeDN
I got back home for league and on a House shot med-heavy oil, wood lanes, 233,213,214=660 Awsome ball.

COMMENTS
I cannot say enough good things about this ball, it is my first Lane #1 ball and I am very satisfied!

Carry
The carry percentage of this ball is phenomenal!  Off hits carry very well light hits just mix the pins so much that there is nothing left (scouts all over the place), high hits give me trip 6s like I have never had before!  Flush shots are so powerful that people around me stop to see what ball I am throwing.  I am having a great time throwing this ball!  

On the broken down THS, the G-Force was way too much ball.  I was not able to stand far enough right to throw this.  When I managed to hit the pocket, the carry was there, but I could not hold the pocket with this ball it just hooked right by it.  I was not disappointed because I have other equipment for this type of shot.

On the scorpion pattern, I was able to play down the first arrow and have several boards of area either way the ball would come off the end of the pattern and at about 45, rev up and just turn to the pocket.  No one else around me was having success from that angle.  I moved a total of three boards with my feet the whole night.  After two weeks, I am averaging 209 (high on the league) and have the high scratch game of 257.  People were asking me all night what ball I was throwing!!

On the MD state tournament pattern, I was able to play up the first arrow with the ball.  The ball reacted similarly to the PBA scorpion pattern, but the shot broke down much quicker, due to a lesser volume of oil I am guessing.  After a game and a half, I switched off to my TNV and stayed in the same place on the lane.  Over all the carry was good, but not quite as good as on the scorpion pattern.  I shot 1912 AE for the tournament.

Likes
Carry percentage and ability to cover more boards on heavier patterns and still have lots of energy and continuation through the pin deck.  The G-Force Solid is a much more versatile ball compared to my Particle InSite SuperNatural.  The SuperNatural is much smoother, but does not retain energy and does not have the same punch as the G-Force unless the lanes are absolutely flooded.  The G-Force is fast becoming my go to ball on heavier tournament and sport shots.  This ball does what I intended it to do and fills a much needed spot in my arsenal.

Dislikes
Nada, nothing to dislike about the ball at all.

Got the G Force a couple months ago, and here's my review.  Fairly strong ball, not overly aggressive, but a great control ball.  Not quite as strong as my Special Agent or Awesome Revs, but hits very well, and has a great carry percentage.  Thought I had a good shot at a 300 with it this past Friday night, but lost my carry in the 9th frame.  Used this ball in a PBA regional on the Shark pattern, and did ok with it, but wasn't playing quite as deep enough as I should have been.  Was all over the pocket but ball hit weak....again my fault with choosing the wrong line.  Give this ball a little bit of room, and watch it come back, and kick 10's out with regularity.

I have a G-force Nebula, this ball is so awesome I bought another. Hadn't seen a ball hit the pocket with such power. Doesn't come close to the pocket on dry lanes a lot of head pin. I'm a 160 average bowler for the past few weeks since I had this ball I average 205. I like this ball so much bought a cobalt bomb. Can't wait to try.

Lane #1 G-Force Ball Review

Lane Conditions: Heavy, Medium-Heavy
Drill Pattern: Stacked
Pin Placement: 3-4 in.

I like to keep all the terminology and descriptions simple.
Basically, I am a Stroker (Right-Handed) and I often play down 5 or 10 and into the pocket. This ball on the fresh league shot allows me to do just that. I will typically start on 10 and adjust from there. The G-Force allows me to play that 10 board line for at least the first game and a half until it begins to dry up. I can conitually adjust as the conditions break down.

The hitting power on the ball is amazing. I like to think of myself as someone who has a little bit of power behind the ball but this ball will hit like a truck. The carry is great and in my opinion is also a forgiving ball if you happen to miss your mark by a board or two.

The surface of my ball is out of the box which I believe is 10 Micron Dull. It has helped me achieve some of my highest games, 279 and some of my highest series 645. (I'm still an amateur , I know 645 isn't that great to some, heh.)

I wasn't really a big fan of Lane #1 Equipment, however this ball is performing well above what I expected.

I would suggest that you keep this ball clean as much as possible, it tends to soak in the oil. Also, when it breaks down to drier conditions I would suggest you throw a different ball. I've had several friends try it on Light to Dry and the ball will not stay on the lane .

A Definite Must Have in your arsenal to tackle the Heavy to Medium-Heavy Condition.

I give this ball a perfect 10.  All you have to do to get a strike is to let it go.
I think this is the greatest bowling balls I ever had. It has a high strike percentage. Sometimes, if I miss my mark it will still give me a strike. It is really smooth in the front ends and in the back end you could hear the pins crush. It arrives with a lot of energy to the pocket. Even if the lanes are dry you could still use it just by making an adjusment. The only down side that I see with this ball is that it is a high maintenance ball. I recommend to clean ths ball right after you finish bowling or else it will absorb a lot of oil and that may affect its reaction. This ball is a great bowling ball.

I had been out of bowling for 12 years or so and recently got back in and decided to buy all new equipment ( brunswick fury, elite alien, lane 1 g-force ). The lanes I bowl on were very old wood lanes, but recently ( just finished this week ) went to synthetic. they are putting down 40' heavy 10 to 10 with a little less outside 10 and a little more up the track. I wanted a ball that would start earlier and have more of a hard arch than a skid/flip, because I was having trouble with squirting past the breakpoint if I had to move in off the straight up 5 board shot. I went to visit Otis Pillow at Otis pro shop in Hurst, Texas and he recommended the g- force for what  I wanted. the ball has a 4.5" pin and 3 oz. top weight, the pin is placed 1" above the ring finger and the mb 1.5" to the right of the thumb hole and a balance whole to make it legal. The first time I threw it was right after drilling and after some adjustment( hand applied maroon scotch brite pad ) this ball seemed to do what i wanted but i was pressed for time and had to leave after just a few frames, Well i went to my house today for some practice with the new g-force and let me tell you this thing is a monster the likes of godzilla if you throw it right, i had absolutly NO squirting of any kind and could easily play at least 5 boards inside the fury or alien, it is so much stronger than my other balls it took me 5 or six frames to adjust, of course the expert drilling by Otis probably has a lot to do with it, but boy does this thing hook. It has a very strong arching motion that does not start as early as you would think and the arch just gets stronger as it enters the end of the pattern. It has excellent pin carry and hits extremely hard. This ball fits exactly where i wanted it in my newly growing bag of tricks. Excellent heavy oil ball, and carry down, who cares,  this ball surely does not! Needless to say i am happy so far and will let you know more if anything changes.
