-About me:
Right handed. 16lb. Power tweener. About 17mph. Higher rev rate. PAP: 5.25” level. Thumb slug and oval grips.

-About the ball:
This ball has a solid reactive cover (Super Micro X2, similar to the Big Hurt). The core is symmetric (Helix, RG:2.49, Diff: 0.040). The cover uses a new “Smart Aeration Technology”, which helps keep the oil from accumulating in the pores. It was described to me as rounded pores (as opposed to jagged), which is designed to help the oil thin out and evaporate.

-Layout/Finish:
This particular ball weighed 16lb 3oz, has 4.0” pin and 3.0oz of top weight. The pin is just above and outside the ring finger with the CG kicked out slightly (we didn't lay it out dual angle, but eyeballing it looks about 50x4.25x30). It now has just under an ounce of positive weight. Box finish.

-On the lane:
The Terra Power Resurrection (TPR) has been a good ball on almost every condition. Its preferred condition is longer-thinner/shorter-heavier patterns, but on dry this ball is still controllable and still hits hard.

It’s very clean thru the heads for a hooking ball. The mid-lane read is great. This ball is smooth and continuous off the break point, and its deflection is minimal thru the pins. It transitions well off of oil, but retains energy well off of dry also. This ball has a good amount of backend to it, but is extremely smooth, continuous, and predictable (For me it’s a stronger version of the Big Hurt, a very popular ball of ours).

This TPR is also what I call “user-friendly” when it comes to the release (which I am finding is a Lord Field trait that I like a lot). This ball doesn’t roll drastically different if you tweak your release at the bottom. What you get is another ball from LF that is pretty forgiving when your release isn’t perfect.

-Dislikes:
So far this ball has been good on everything, but not “killer” on anything. It looks like it’s going to be another work-horse that I can always depend on, but it hasn’t yet given me that reaction like I can just throw it anywhere and it will always strike no matter what (however, when I do get that reaction out of a ball, it’s usually “condition specific”, and it’s no good on other dissimilar conditions). Oh, and I leave a lot of stone-9s with the TPR, BUT they’re easier to spare than 10-pins.

-Summary:
I would recommend this ball for anyone who wants a very versatile ball. I would also recommend it for someone who wants a ball that hooks, but doesn’t like balls that are real “jumpy” on the backend. It is good on dry, but it’s not a dry lane ball. However, if you don’t want to carry around a bunch of balls, and you see oil to dry at about 60%/40% or so, then this ball is a great recommendation. It’s been good for me on most house shots, and on tougher patterns.
