I thought the cobalt was a bomb core ball. The cobalt bomb pearl was a medium condition ball. Check out youtube.

My bad the ball in question is the buzzsaw /c CARBIDE pearl.
I've looked all over you tube with no luck.

Well now that is a totally different  animal. The Carbide pearl is a partical cover and has a C/2 coreand can handle med/heavy to medium conditions. I still have mine and it still hooks a ton.

I tried to post a picture of the ball but the file is too big.  The ball has a 1" pin and a 2.75 oz. top weight.  Thinking of drilling for medium oil.  Any thoughts to the contrary or advice in general would be appreciated.  Thanks

That indeed is the carbide pearl. If you ever want to part with it let me know.

I really want to drill it up but don't know what shape it is. Does it skid snap or long and smooth or something else?  It only has a 1" pin will this have a negative impact on the performance?

Look On YouTube under BuzzsawBrian he is throwing one the video doesn’t do the ball justice but hopefully it will give you an idea what you are looking for

Normally with a short pin u are limited, either pin down or drill out the pin if I remember correctly the specs were 2.55 and .039 so more of a medium oil ball

he's using the Carbide + not the Carbide Pearl. The Carbide + was the remake of the Carbide solid. Now with the pin below your fingers the ball reaction should be to the smoother side.

ya I checked out all the you tube videos and couldn't find any on this ball.
The reaction i'm looking for is down and in if possible. would a pin down drilling accomplish this. I fall into the med rev 16.5 to 17 mph player.  can slow down and swing a little if I have to but really like to play down and in. thanks for the input.

Thats a tough one to answer. Might be the wrong ball for down and in. Would be more of an arc motion.
