Need some help please.
« on: August 06, 2018, 10:41:27 PM »
My Hammer Viral Hybrid is too strong for our new THS.  I'm forced to move a lot further left than I want to or am comfortable with.  With my slower speed this is resulting in too many high hits, cross-overs and splits.  So, before the fall season, I need to get something to fit under the Viral and am looking at the Ebonite Turbo/R, the Columbia Nitrous or the Track Tundra.  If anyone has used any of these balls I would really appreciate your suggestions as to which might be the best for the drier conditions. 

Thanks in advance.

Not sure what it is, but the vibes all have a better core shell matchup than the viral for me. 

I've never thrown the Vibe so I have no personal comparison.  The Viral, however, has been very good for me on medium and slightly dry conditions.  Just need a ball under that for really dry.  Thanks for your input.

With the situation you described, I'd definitely recommend the Brunswick Twist. To me it sounds like you're looking for length through the mids and a controlled backend reaction

I think the 10.7 cover on the Turbos will be too much.

The Tundra could be an option I'm just not too familiar with the reaction in heavier weights. I know a senior bowler that got a Tundra in 13lbs because the core is 2.53/.055 and it's a little too much ball in the conditions you described.

I don't know much about the Nitrous and I've never seen or thrown one thrown in person so I can't really comment on that ball.

Thanks SV.  I'll certainly check out the Twist.  The main reason I mentioned the other balls is that our local pro-shop pushes Ebonite products and most times have those in stock.  I agree on the Turbo/R with the GB coverstock.  Might be too strong.  I do see that one of them is a pearl and the other two hybrids if that makes any difference.  Like you I have never seen anyone with the Nitrous, however, I haven't been looking for it.  The Tundra looks interesting also but I've also never seen it in any of my leagues. 

Again thanks for the help.

Not sure about the other balls mentioned in this thread, but the cherry vibe would be my choice on dirt.   Anything much wesker isnt going to hit unless you have a lot of hand
