Ok this ball is if you know what I mean... I can play where ever I want with this ball with a slight hand change. My PAP is 3 3/8 over and 1 5/8 up.

1st A Flip= 3 1/2" straight above my fingers putting the mass bias 2" over and 1/4" down from my centerline. Needed a small weight hole to take out some finger weight.

2nd A Flip= pin is slightly above my two fingers with the mass bias being at 45" and 1/4" from my thumb.

These two balls are very very strong. I have seen a few people suggest these balls for lighter conditions and I dont know what their thinking because I usually play mine very deep inside and even on some longer patterns. I bowled on a couple TOC patterns and where my other balls was rolling to heavy and not really giving me the backend look I needed where this ball was going a little to long at times but the recovery off the dry was incredible. For any bowler with a higher type rev rate this should be ur first ball from the mo rich line if you dont already have one. If theres one ball I can compare this to it would be a vapor zone. Both of the wonderful designes rev up very strongly in the midlane especially when shined!!! When I get on a broken down pattern and need to play inside the 4 and even the 5th arrows this will be the ball I use. The backend energy is simply incredible! When other balls just wont drive when playing to deep just remember this one will!

I give this ball a perfect 10 because it compliments all the other balls. This is the only really reving up ball made by mo. Im a proud user of Rons Magic Carpet. For those of you that havnt tried it, its ur own loss!

SPECS: Shawn Rash layout, pin under my middle finger mb turned out 3 1/2 inches OOB Finish.

THE IDEA: was to use this ball on lighter conditions giving me an extra option in between my HPP and Finish. The pattern allows me to use the ball ''closer to friction'' and I must say it does allow me to do that.

T&O LANES: 20 feet of guardian then wood the rest of the way, heavy in the center dry outside over the top returns so no getting way left on the right lane. Enter Flip When HPP isn't turning quite hard enough I bring the Flip out, Flip gives me a stronger reaction a little further down the lane than the HPP(HPP DRILLED PIN UNDER BRIDGE.) I go about 14 at the arrows out to around 8-10 range and watch the ball bury the pins, Flip gives me more room when we are bowling against, or with in some instances, guys using urethane which is just causing a sick amount of carry down.

THOUGHTS: I like the ball with the new layout more than I thought I would at first I was kinda iffy the ball doesn't turn the corner if their isn't friction almost useless on a fresh shot. However Break down and places like T&O with alot of skid through the head and then alot of backend movement this ball dominates. PBA Patterns like Cheetah and Chameleon this ball with this layout is perfect for. Control is amazing it seems to glide to the break point where other similar balls are having issues getting their movement off the break point is strong but not to nasty it faces up easily, again as long as their is alot of friction. Hit and Carry is typical MO style so no surprises their. U can do alot with the ball if you have alot of dry you can swing it if their is alot of oil in the center of the lane or alot of crankers playing through the center and you wanna stay right of them and out of their way this is a good choice.

This ball is one my favorites in the bag once again just amazing all around. Great Job Mo as usual

Bow down to the power of the Awesome What an amazing ball! I used my Awesome Flip on a med/heavy oil pattern. It got through the heads easily and had a strong move in the backend to destroy the pocket. Man, am I glad I bought this gem. When the lanes start getting drier it was back in the bag for the Awesome Flip and out for the Creature(also a great ball). Drier/shorter patterns are not the Awesome Flip's friend. Awesome Flip rating, 10/10 for sure! Thanks for reading.

WOW What a ball - I picked up this ball off ebay the drill specs were close to mine and I like the pin and CG layout. This was a PBA drilled ball so I new it was good quality first off. Ball is drilled out leverage for late flip - this drilling only accentuates what is already designed into this ball. This Ball Flips and Flips hard. Instant change of direction and absolutely no quit once the hook starts.

Ball has a weight hole. I changed the grips in the ball right away to my favorite style and threw some games of practice, I was amazed on how much hook this ball had for a pearlized cover. I put this ball away for league shot and that was a big mistake struggled all night with my Solid Leverage trying to carry, had not played really deep all season so I shied away from using the Awesome Flip.

Friday night league at Danville Bowl I did not repeat that mistake - THS with a bias to playing up and around the five board. put together games of 244 - 245- 244 for a 733 set - won my brackets a high game pot and high series for the night. In one league night the ball paid me back!

this ball has unbelievable back end recovery ability, once it makes a move it does not stop and I find a great angular pocket hit with this ball, the best part with this type of hit is the carry - this ball carries a ton. This ball also goes through the head and leaves splits if you get soft with the ball speed.

Pulled this ball back out of the bag on Saturday night at Clayton Valley Bowl - shot 254-210- 236 with it for an even 700 set.

My first two sets with this ball 733 and 700! I am really impressed with the carry of this ball and the readability, when this ball moves early, you no instantly you need to move your feet, there is no quit with this ball and the angular pocket hits really carry well, make no mistake - you must be firm with this ball on all but the oiliest conditions, otherwise it will rev up early and over react.

I score this ball a 9 out of 10 I wish Mo would put Flip caps on his awesome "Ez Rev Core" and stick that engine in a pearl coverstock like the Awesome Flip.

This Ball is Flipping Amazing!

I have 2 of these balls. Both have pin next to ring finger. One ball has the mb on val and the other ball has the mb just right of thumbhole. Both balls are very clean through the heads with a nice strong snap off of the dry. The Mb on val ball is slightly earlier and covers a couple more boards than the ball with the mb near the thumb. The cover is a bit oil allergic. You get a lot of hook once it hits the dry and almost none in oil. This allows me to chase the oil line on a house shot while playing deep. Carry is above average. I like this ball a lot on a house shot. Good carry with a lot of miss room.
