Comments:     
This is my go to ball out of the ball.  Very strong backend motion, yet very predictable. It lets me play in my comfort zone of 15 out to 7ish. If it isnít super oily or dry, this is the only ball Iíll need all night; my favorite out of the line so far. If you miss out it has enough energy to recover back to the pocket. It also holds pocket well on a tugged ball. The continuation is what surpirsed me most about this ball. Always a good sign when the ball is leaving the pind deck through the 8 pin spot. I am extremely pleased with this ball and contemplating getting another one and trying it with the pin above the ring finger to get a bit more length for a bit of a drier shot. This is a must to get out of the Lord Field line.

COMMENTS:

I have really enjoyed using this ball. I find it to be very versatile and covers many conditions. It takes to surface adjustments very well. OOB the ball was a bit long for my liking. However with I light scuffing with a 4k pad by hand...it woke the beast up. The Judgement has a lot of mid lane read. Its a strong arc move off the spot and not jumpy by any means. I have had a lot of great nights with this ball. I have used it on fresh shots to burned out shots...even on the burn it still has enough energy it to recover. It is very clean up front. Clears the heads with ease. Dont be afraid to put your favorite surface on this ball. It is a hybrid particle and the only one of its kind out. The judgement is a house shot killer too. Chews up the fresh and blends out the transition with ease. You will not be disappointed with this ball!

Dislikes: None.

About me:
Right handed. 16lb. Power tweener. About 17mph. Higher rev rate. PAP: 5.25” level. Exacticated thumb (slug) and oval grips.


Layout/Finish:
Couldn’t get too creative. This particular ball has about a 2” pin and 3.2 oz of top weight. The pin is almost directly underneath the ring finger with the CG kicked out (for you dual angle folks, it’s about 40x4.25x60). We didn’t need a weight hole to make it legal; it was right at 1oz of positive after drilling, but we put one about an inch below the PAP. It now has about  a 1/2 ounce. Box finish.


On the lane:
This ball is strong off the break point, but still controllable. The length is slightly longer than average, and the mid-lane read is average. It pretty much rolls exactly like what I imagined a Hybrid Particle would roll like (this is my first), but cleaner thru the front. This ball gets into a roll quickly at the end of the pattern, in part due to the layout, but it does not overreact. It’s also very versatile. On medium to medium-heavy, it rolls and carries great from farther right (right of 12), and when it dries out I can move in with this ball (left of 20) and it still rolls and carries great. A lot of balls do one or the other well, this one does both for me.

The Judgement for me is very forgiving, at least on the THSs I have thrown it on. It still rolls over and drives thru the pins when I miss left and it pushes long… and the recovery when missing right is surprising. The only time I’ve noticed any loss in hitting power from this ball is in carry down (but then again, what ball doesn’t?). I’ve read other reviews that say adding some surface or taking down the polish will help with carry down, but it rolls so good otherwise that I hate to mess with it, and it’s nothing a tweak in wrist position or entry angle won’t fix.

So far the box finish has been great on medium conditions. Even with the polish, it still hooks quite a bit on heavier volume and longer patterns, so long as there is at least a little friction to the outside or at the end of the pattern. I’ve read that surface will help it chew thru oil, but again, it rolls so good for me out of the box I don’t want to mess with it. However, if you’re looking for an oil chewing hook monster, you may not get that with the box finish with the Judgement… its preferred niche so far has been medium. (Keep in mind, I have hand and like to stay in the puddle in the middle. If you like to play closer to the oil line and bump the dry, you’ll probably see a lot more reaction quicker than I do)


Dislikes:
I have 2 minor dislikes about this ball, neither of which are a big deal. The first is actually a good thing. The ball does exactly what you tell it to do. It’s very predictable and very controllable. It’s very forgiving with area, but it rolls however you release it. It hasn't been the kind of ball that will make a bad release look good, but so long as it comes off your hand close to the way you intended, it’s very forgiving area-wise. The second; since it is strong off the break point, it sometimes appears that it is burning up and rolling out. However, the ball does not lose hitting power like you would typically see in a ball that burned up too early (like when you force an aggressive ball on a very dry lane). This ball clears the heads well and reads strong but doesn’t overreact, so it still has a lot of energy left when it makes its strong move at the end of the pattern. What you get is a ball that sometimes looks like it rolled out but hits like it didn’t.


Summary:
I would definitely recommend this ball to anyone looking for a benchmark, versatile, medium-but-still-strong performance ball. This ball should be good for any type of player on a lot of different patterns and conditions.

The Judgement is the perfect fit for my arsenal. Im able to through this through the toughest conditions. I bowl in a lot of tournaments, and my last one was on the hardest patterns ive seen, and i was able to throw the judgement, and it reacted perfectly. It very clean through the heads and for me isnt jumpy and doesnt fail through the oil. This ball is amazing and is one that really needs to be picked up by people. It reacts so well on any pattern put out there!! Its very versatile. I can play my normal deep inside line, and if i wanted to i could hook the whole lane. The ball is very readable. I must say, this is my favorite Lord Field that i have so far. Cant wait for many more Lord Fields to come out for me to get!
