Lord Field Pin Hacker

Length: 28' buffed to 40'

Volume: 50mil

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS (Modified USBC White Pattern)

I finally got a chance to throw the PIN HACKER from LORD FIELD BOWLING. The PIN HACKER is laid-out with a2.85” PIN IN RF, NO WH, CG 1-1/2" RT OF CL, 1/8" ABOVE MIDLINE. First used it in an older house with a synthetic overlay, this house is normally pretty dry, so suffice it say the ball did not have a good look, although when the balls got to the pocket it had exceptional carry. The line I had the most success playing was up 15 at the arrows to 5-6 at 40 feet with a little more speed than normal.

Got to use it on my THS, which is a fairly new surface utilizing Twister Pins, a new Kegel oiling machine running a modified USBC White Pattern. On this pattern the PIN HACKER in a couple of games after league play looked pretty strong and promising, playing a line similar to what I mentioned above.

Used in league play for the first time and fired off a 783 series, got to use the ball for all 3 games with not much of a move on the lanes.  The PH carries exceptional well on my THS and will remain in my back as my alternative to transitioning lanes as it tends to react like a pearl/particle.


Likes: The balls ability to ignore carry-down like a pearl/particle.

Dislikes: None as of yet............

Carry - Amazing , a bit better on the synthetics i bowl on , on the wood lanes it left 4 solid 9pins and 2 10pins in 1 game im sure i had a part in that but the solid 9pin shots were pocket
Likes - how clean the ball is at 1k+polish,and the way it drives through the pindeck with 100% continuation
Dislikes - as stated above the ball drives through the pindeck so hard that it has left a few solid 9's and a few 10's on wood lanes , on synthetics this ball shines, so i may need to alter the surface to better suit both allys
Other -  this was my second lord field purchase and i am so happy with it , it rolls well alongside my judgment and nasty another great ball from a great company

Length: 40

Volume: 26.55 ml

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Sport Pattern WTBA Athens


Drilled this ball with a 90 x 4 x 40 Motion Hole layout. This ball was skating the heads and taking a very hard turn on the back. The continuation was amazing as this ball was rolling off the 9 pin spot at the end of the deck every single shot (I am a lefty). This ball really helped open up the lanes for me and gave me more room then the rest of the balls in my bag. Cover took well to surface adjustments as I was able to take it down and up as well as recover the reaction I had at OOB. This is the closest thing to skid snap that Lord Field has and it is really a must have ball in the bag.
