Benchmark Asymmetric
« on: September 11, 2018, 07:13:22 AM »
With the new rules eliminating balance holes, asymmetric cored balls will be the best way to get the layout that you need.

However, current asymmetric balls are geared towards those who need a strong ball. For a number of bowlers, these balls are too strong for playing the typical house shot. An asymmetric cored ball with medium differentials and medium cover would be better.

The first company to produce a benchmark asymmetric ball wins!

Desert Ops? For me, that would be considered a benchmark ball.

I didn't think of it as a benchmark originally, but being lower tilt my DV8 Creed really acts as a benchmark ball for me. Easy to see if it works or what I can change to. DV8 has also had the Vandal series which all seemed to be more middle of the road. If you're higher in tilt or rotation maybe a little too sideways

I think of "strong" as front to back but I think people refer to "strong" as side motion. So I never really understand a question or statement with the word "strong" in it.
The harder I try the harder they fall

The Kinetics, Honey Badger, and Matrix don't count as asyms. The Code X, Black Ops series, do count.

The Kinetics, Honey Badger, and Matrix start out with mild asymmetry which is what makes them well suited as benchmark asymmetricals.  Depending on the layout, they can easily end up with the same intermediate diff that the Code X and Black Ops balls start with.

If they don't count as asymmetricals, then the manufacturers wouldn't be allowed to advertise them as such.

Lit Pearl despite the numbers and the "pearl" has a very Benchmark type shape for a high end ball. It's clean and smooth and responds to speed adjustments really well. Logix is also a great ball for medium-ish THS. It's also clean and smooth downlane. They are very forgiving off the dry because they don't jack knife left, but they can still cover a big amount of boards for a pearl.  I'm surprised how well both of these balls roll on the fresh for me.

This is going to sound nuts, but I'll go with a Black Ops, 50*5*65 with 2000. I know exactly which way to go from there.

Yes, I have higher tilt and higher rotation - need more control usually.
