Specs:
15.04lbs
4 inch pin
2.5 top

Layout:
Pin 5 from PAP
CG 4 from PAP
Dual Angle: 60 x 5 x 40

Picture:

The Xtreme Damage Platinum is the same Xtreme Damage from back in the days but with an enhanced cover stock. The tall core with 100% cover from top to bottom is great quality which you rarely see from other companies today.

I got to test my XDP this past weekend at a tournament i bowled in. The house used the Kegel Bourbon Street Pattern which is 40ft with a decent amount of volume. The lane surface was DBA synthetics which is known for burning up front and getting tight on the back. I tried the XDP on the third squad where the heads were fried right of 15 and the backs a little tight. The XDP got through the heads clean and had a nice continuous arc on the back. It's not a ball that goes sideways but has a predictable roll. I was very impress the way it hits and carries. I would say this ball is 2 to 3 feet longer than the original black pearl and maybe a foot longer than the Perfect. The Perfect and XDP are really close but the XDP has more kick.  I would only use the XDP when the heads start to break down. On the fresh it would squirt down lane and give over and under. I will try the XDP with different surface in the near future just to see what it will do. This is another great ball by Tony Martin.

 Lane Masters : Xtreme Damage Platinum
 I wanted a ball that can play on burn patterns on the outside track area.  I drilled the XDP 90x3x40 because I was so pleased with my Lord Field Off the Chain drilled 70x2.25x35.  I knew The Xtreme Damage Platinum had a strong backend read so I didn't want to completely take that aspect away in the drilling with the pin placement.  I also wanted to take advantage the XDP later reaction to the friction. I believe amy bowler can take advantage of this ball on ths.  All bowlers high medium or low revving can easily use this ball when the lanes reacts early.  The Xtreme damage platinum clears the mid lane even when burnt and has a strong backend.
