this is a ball that you will looking for if you want something long and strong

I don't think this is a ball for dry lane because it's still really strong midlane

well I prefer this ball on fresh oil with a nice backend

SPECS:70X 2 1/2X40, OOB finish. The Idea was to get the ball to have length with a smooth reaction late on the lane, No jumps or Surprises it worked!

T&O Lanes: Guardian for 20 feet then old wood the rest of the way, Lots of oil in the middle a drier track with some volume outside. I tried starting with MoJ and it was a little skittish when I was playing 15 out to about 10 hesitant to turn, going right is impractical at the house due to the FLYING backends. So I put it away until the start of game three. Pulled it back out, went 15 out anywhere I wanted to and got it to come back for nice pocket hit. Ball just needed a little oil off the lane to make it work great.

SABRE LANES: Older wood house with a standard THS about 37 feet I would say, and like alot of wooden houses, their is alot of friction in the track area. I was feeling like doing an experiment so I used the MoJ one night. Went 12 out 5 and got a surprisingly quick reaction at about 47 feet I was surprised, it wasn't snappy but a sharper reaction than I expected, MoJ does a pretty good job mellowing a brutal Backend at T&O but had more backend than expected here. Sadly I couldn't get deep at all I was stuck playing, straighter and when I burnt out the area I was playing I still couldn't get lefter effectively.

THOUGHTS: Great dry lane ball, easy length with a smoother reaction off friction. Good hitting power not as powerful as some of the other Mo stuff I have used. Ball ignores the first 30 feet of the lane doesn't even think about hooking or even reading the lane till way after that. Cool Looking ball also gets compliments from the ladies I really like the fact that I can play straight even with the amount of hand I have which very rare for me even weaker goes left at the end of the oil.

55 x 3 1/2 x 25 - Cover 4000 (oob)

My 300 ball.  This ball is designed for decent length and thats how I have it drilled.  I find this ball to work very well on carry down.  This ball maintains a lot of energy all the way through the pins.  It still finishes strong if I pull it in the oil and it doesn't over react if I get it in the dry too soon.  If you throw a lot of revs or bowl on dry conditions, I suggest getting a MOjave.

I have a 15# MOjave with a 3 inch pin and around 3 oz of starting topweight. I had the ball drilled with pin next to ring finger with the MB just right of thumb. A small wt hole was required to keep the statics legal.

I have had a lot of success with an awesome flip. The idea with the Mojave was to duplicate the drill and hopefully switch to the Mojave as the lanes broke down without having to move my feet or target much.

The result is a ball that loves broken down heads. On fresh the ball is over/under, but give the ball some early friction and you have a great reaction. The cover ignores the dry heads, gets great length, and then the MOjave unleashes all that stored energy and demolishes the pins. It actually covers a lot of boards. I have to stand deep and feed the ball way right. Great ball for inside angles if you have friction.

I guess a dry lane ball doesn't have to go straight. I can play the dry very successfully with this ball, but I have to hook the lane. The MOjave wasn't what I expected, but it covers the condition I bought it for and carries great!

What a pleasant surprise: I purchased the MOjave for late shifts, burnt tracks and, perhaps, a way to keep a ball more versatile than polyester in the bag.

It turns out that my MOjave is even more versatile than what I had in mind and now has a place in my THS and tournament bags. The MOjave features a mildly asymmetric core surrounded by Brunswick’s PowrKoil 17 coverstock, which has been around since the mid-1990’s when it was featured in Brunswick’s high end balls such as the Sapphire Zone and Rhino Pro LE, later in the PBIII MVP and currently in Slingshot. The pairing of PK17 with a MoRich core results in a ball that rolls true, reacts in a consistent manner and hits hard on dry, medium-dry and shorter medium conditions today.

For many of us who bowl on predominantly medium-dry to medium typical house conditions, the MOjave may become your most used, perhaps your baseline ball. For sport conditions, the MOjave could be your answer on lower volume mediums and medium volume, shorter length conditions. I’ve used it on Cheetah with excellent results. On the local THS, the MOjave offers a board of tug, the target board, a board of leakage right and sometimes, another board right with no loss of carry. Most of my stronger equipment overreacts two right and picks up too early a board left. Where I may have two boards with stronger equipment, the MOjave gives me three or four boards.

My MOjave began life at 15 pounds 4 ounces with 2.8 ounces of top weight and a 4 1/4” pin. Mo Pinel provided the layout recommendation: 60-degrees x 4.75” x 50-degrees with no weight hole to start (and none added later as the ball rolls just great as drilled without weight hole fine-tuning, statics in spec). The cover remains in factory polished condition.

The MOjave utilizes a high radius of gyration version of the EZ Rev core feature low differential and intermediate differential RGs. This results in a ball with low flare characteristics that, on the plus side, helps retain energy effectively but is out of its element on longer oil patterns or patterns exhibiting substantial carry down.

In summary, the MOjave is a keeper, a ball that may cover more than one slot in your arsenal and should be able to fill this need for years to come. Well done MoRich!

After having a bit of bad luck with my first MoRich, I really hadn't planned on another one. This one just fell in my lap, so what the heck.

 A friend of mine with grip specs like mine had it drilled for him, but he hated it. It turns out to be a very mild drilling for me with a small VAL angle, short pin to pap, and large drilling angle, given my pap coordinates of 4 1/8> 1/2^. I haven't had the dual angles professionally measured, but you can tell much about it from the picture below.¤t=1219001015.jpg

 Miraculously, this ball is almost exactly what I've been searching for. The shot here tends to be on the drier side, and dries up even faster, so having something that lets me play somewhat in the dry is a blessing. This ball does exactly that.


 The ball clears the heads extremely well, so much so that I altered the surface down to 2000ab. The ball still clears the fronts cleanly due to its mild nature, the 2000 finish lets it read the breakpoint much better.

 The only problem I have is the fact that I am outside the other bowlers and, when it comes time to adjust in a bit, the other bowlers have already burned up that area, so my initial adjustment is either a big move (8-10 boards) at once, or a change to a stronger ball and an even bigger move back into the oil line.

 A little too strong for the true burn, this ball really shines for me on the fresh going up the boards, and can be an all night piece if the shot doesn't burn to the point I have to get too deep. It really doesn't like being swung a lot, but will work within limits, and the more direct line it lets me play doesn't call for much swing anyway.

 Overall, a really surprising, better than expected ball that I have fallen in love with very quickly.
