Pro shop guy suggested these three for my dad who wants a weaker ball with some snap. What are peoples opinions of these?

Cobalt Vibe has been an incredible ball for me.  Very tame, but for guys with slower ball speeds it really hits.  Don't know anything about the other balls.  The one thing I do know about the Vibe compared to other dry lane balls is that it has a low rg core and depends on the shell for length with smooth transition.

my cobalt backends pretty nicely for me and i dont have an overly lengthy layout on it. out of those 3 the punch out will probably be the snappiest and the tribal will be the smoothest. the vibes are probably my favorite ball series of all time so i would recommend the cobalt. there isnt a huge difference between them so just pick which one looks better or company you like.

Also there were some Cobalts still available on the internet for $75.  Pretty good deal considering the booth in Reno was selling them for $139.
