Another winner for Mo.   Drilled this ball for aRight Handed  high track player  5 1/2> x 1/2^

Did not use any of the prescribed drillings as I was afraid the player wouldn't be able to control the ball.   If you look at the ball you would think the ball is a left hander   Pin under Middle Finger CG kicked to the Left  Mass Bias in the bowlers normal track.

The ball likes lots of oil Once it hits the dry it is going left. If the bowler does not hit the ball it tens to clip the middle finger but there is no real effect on the roll other than the noise  If the Player properly executes the shot the track moves away from the fingers.   Very tight flare.   The ads dont lie  you can hear the difference when the ball hits the pins.

PBA....perhaps the condition you used the WMB on just wasn't the right match up?  That happens from time to time.  Mine hooks the freakin' world and seems to carry 20 pins.  Just the right match up I guess.  Hope it works out for you.  I have found mine to be ALL it was advertised PLUS some.

Ball Weight: 15.4
Pin: 2-3
Top Weight: 3.0
Layout: 6 1/2 MB, 2 1/2 Pin, Pin 1 1/2 above mid line, X hole on PAP
Stats: RH 16mph, PAP of 4 3/4 x 3/4, Tilt of 13deg., Above avg rev rate.

This is my frist test of a Mo-Rich ball, I was looking for something strong out of the box to use on a flatter tourament type condition, I did not find that but found something much better in this ball.  Out of the box it was way to strong on any league type condition, on the flatter tourament type shots it was good for about 3 games before it started to lose its stong recovery reaction.  The ball absoutly does not like swing, the straighter the great with this one.

I'll finish this one later...

Post by: D McLaughlin on December 19, 2004, 05:34:46 PM bro.  I know here in Atlanta, several 210-225 players RAVE over this ball.  Don't claim the ball is the problem.  Perhaps the matchup to your customers just isn't there.  I haven't seen ANY owners of this ball....myself included suffering from taps.  Maybe its a geographical thing?

My specs are in my profile.

Ball info

Weight: 14 lbs
Surface: Box (500 matte)
Pin to PAP distance: 2 1/2"
MB to PAP distance: 6 3/8"
Pin height above the midline: 2 1/2"
Ball was drilled as recommended by Fred Carroll, Jr of Morich as a high track control drill

Conditions Bowled On

General impressions

This is a very powerful and smooth rolling ball with this drill.  Its Performance in the heads amazed me.  It just seemed float through the heads with the box finish, started reading nicely in the midlane and arced hard to the pocket at the breakpoint.  On all three shots, the ball hit like Mike Tyson on crystal meth and provided amazing continuation at the pin deck. It just sounded different.

The ball was also very responsive to adjustments in hand position in rev rate.  Small adjustments produced small and easily readable changes in reaction.

This is not just an oil ball.  It works well on a heavier shot, but it also works very well on all the mediums. With the layout I had, you needed some head oil, though.

Shot 1

Started out trying to play down the 10 board but went brooklyn every time.  Someone with more speed than may could probably have made this line work.  Moved in a bit and played 20 at the arrows to 8 at the breakpoint and I was off to the races.  Got a strong arc at the breakpoint and just crushed the pocket.  Light hits, high flush, middle of the pocket, it just didn't seem to matter. I saw multiple messengers when I didn't even need one. Want a stronger move? Rev it up a little more.

Shot 2

The league before us blew away everything outside of 12 so I started out playing 18 at the arrows.  This worked for about one game, and then I needed to move left.  The problem was that the other team had three major crankers who started out at 24, so there was wasn't a heck of a lot of room to move.  I threw it for 4 more frames and then found myself in "tweener hell", so I had to bag it. Also, the ball appeared to completely ignore the carrydown we had.

Shot 3

Yeah, Baby!

Oh. Wait. Wrong ball

I'm not kidding people. Hide your women, children and small pets, because this ball is an absolute monster on this type of shot. I started out playing straight up 10.  I got the following reaction:float, float, rev, arc, BOOM!  The carry was amazing.  I don't think I left a single 10 pin in 3 games.  I did, manage to leave a few nines, though.  This ball just doesn't deflect much at all.  Only had to move 6 boards all night.


Picks up more dirt than my 6yo daughter at a playground


The ball has so many markings on it, it makes you look like your revving it like Robert Smith


Another great one from MoRich.  Usable by just about anyone.  Extremely versatile and controllable.  Unbelievable hit and continuation.

Poor Quality failure for MO Again!!!!Ball rolled at my feet and hits like a marshmellow 40 ft top with anvil lane lane conditioner was kegel offense.
Ball was layed out pin over ring.

One word: AWESOME!  Ball corners very, very hard.  Mo punched up this and my Ravage a couple of w/e ago.  With a little help from him on getting the ball down the lane, I have been very, very impressed.

Got this to replace a defective track rule. So far I like it. Out hooks my ebonite xcel. Can't tell the difference in sound but as hard as I through (20+mph) it's no wonder.

16lbs 1oz - 1.7oz Top
Drilled Pin 3 3/4 Mass Bias 5 1/4 strong (Small X-Hole on my VAL 1" below my PAP)

Holy $#!t, this ball is unreal.... with some tweaking.
I chose an agressive, but not crazy layout for this ball because I respected that fact that this ball just looks like it was going to hook at my toe... and thats what it did out of the box.  I put it away for a few weeks, was even going to sell it.  I went to practice and pulled this off of my rack in my room and decided to work with this ball and give it some serious attention.
I brought the surface UP to 1000 Abralon, to try and get a little more smooth reaction out of the ball.  It's been uphill with this ball ever since.  The ball revs up in the early part of the lane, but with a smoother surface it delays the roll causing a more even roll and hard backend push.  On a wet/dry overwall I had a problem out of the box with it rolling out when it touched dry too early.  Since I've smoothed out the surface I've seen a drastic improvement in the overall performance of this ball.  740 in the next league session after my coverstock adjustment.
To those of you who bashed this ball for hooking early, don't give up on it. DO NOT SHINE THIS BALL!!! Bring it UP to 1000 Abralon or 1200 wet sand.  If you have to, use a light coat of Storm #2, which brings the balls from 400 to 1500 sanded.  Don't use too much compound, or the ball will shine too much.  But try to get your pro shop operator to smooth the surface out for you.
The ads don't lie, this ball smashes through the pins.  My first of many MoRich balls.

This ball is amazing I have had it for just a couple of weeks now. This ball will carry just about anything near the pocket. Light hits, half pockets, high hits, and even the flush shots. My avg is 202 and 212 in two different houses. Since I got this ball I have shot 718, 778, 665, and a 703. This ball is a must have for any bowler. Great Job Morich.

Lane Conditions: Heavy Oil
Typical Conditions: House Shot
Type of Lane: All Wood
What part of the lane did you play? Third Arrow
Did the ball track out? Normal
Weight of bowling ball: 16
Surface of bowling ball: Factory/Box
Likes: Everything about this ball
Dislikes: only dry lanes but hey it isn't for dry so why throw it on dry

This is the best heavy oil ball I've ever thrown. It's by far better than my Raging Inferno on really tight lanes, but the inferno is still the best medium to heavy oil ball ever. I think the color of this ball is awsome even though some say it's ugly. But that's when you ask them if a prettier colored ball helps you knock pins better than my ugly ball. That's when they usually walk away. Overall the best ball made by Morich today. Morich Rules!

ok i have been here a time or 2 before and in the past reviews i have been less then pleased with my choices ,but i kept reading about morich balls and their joint ventures with brunswick and how they were the hookiness balls out there,and then one night i bowled against a guy who was bowling this charcoal grey dull ball on a med to dry wood 35 feet used pattern and everything he threw carried, i mean everything. Went spare ,split, to the wall, and then i asked what is that u r shooting when he told me i almost was the ball i was reading about the wmb. A week later i bought one my driller drilled the ball for backend flip since i have very little hand and low revs, and i have to say of all the balls i have purchased this is the ball that has delivered as advertised. i went down in weight to 15 for more control,all i can say is wow. i love this ball with oil in the heads to allow the ball to get right, just stand back and watch it flip, the only thing i don't like is if its not wet enough i cant use it. Gonna have to get another one and change the surface so it will go longer in drier conditions, same drilling though ,man i love watching this ball roll,i strongly recommend it for anyone looking for a heavy oil ball that with tweaking u can probably use on anything,will trade all my equipment for any morich any takers

My personal stats are posted in my profile....

Ball is drilled with the pin 3 1/2" from my axis and 1 3/4" above the midline.  MB is 4" from my axis, swung past my VAL.  Weighthole is on my PAP.  Altered the factory surface a little, and have found spraying with ball bite, then scuffing with burgundy/grey pads gives me the best look.

The ball is one of my favorites.  Clears the heads exceptionally well for a high load particle.  As long as there is some head oil present, it will not check early.  The midlane is really where I like this ball.  It revs up nicely and really reads the lane very well from 25 to 35 feet.  Very clean through this section, and sets up the backend nicely.  The reaction off of the breakpoint is what really makes me happy about this ball.  Smooth is the only word to describe it.  It has a very long and lowpy arc, with extreme controllability.  I can use the ball on a wide variety of conditions because of this, and the ball is extremely perceptive to different hand positions.  The carry I get from this ball is something else.  Keeps the pins lower than anything else in my bag, and just rolls through racks.  There is definitely a different sound from this ball when it hits the pocket.  It just hits with a lot of force, and doesn't give the pins very much of a chance.

Overall, this ball is very predictable and versatile, with great carry.  I have also found the ball to be very driller friendly and the cover can be tweaked easily.  If you are looking for something benchmark on medium-heavy conditions, you can't go wrong with the WMB.  A real winner from MoRich, that is making me purchase more of their equipment.

3.2 oz top and a 4 inch pin.  Drilled it up my usual way, pin above and inbetween my fingers with the cg kicked to the right, and the mb 1 inch right of thumb.  This ball does roll early, and has a smooth backend reaction.  Comparing this to the Gp2 the Weapon will have more midlane roll with a little less on the back.  It will hook about the same.  The Super Carbide Bomb will roll earlier but not nearly have the same amount of backend.  The Weapon is usable on medium to heavy conditions.  This ball will be a first game ball and may not be used often, since heavier oil is hard to find, but this is the case with all higher load particle balls.

Post by: Phenic on July 02, 2005, 02:29:55 PM
Fred Caroll gave me this layout as part of a 3 ball arsenal,

Pin to PAP distance = 3 3/8"
MB to PAP distance = 4 5/8"
Pin height above the midline = 1 3/4"
X-Hole = Thumb positive quadrant

Ball is clean thru the front, heavy roll in the mid and has a pretty hard arcing backend. With this drilling, it can be used on medium-oily to oily for me. Very smooth overall. Left it in box condition (500 matte).

This is my first Morich ball and it really does what it is advertised to do. It hits hard! Harder then anything I've ever thrown.

With such performance, its hard for me to choose anything else but Morich now.

once again i was wrong the ball is no better than anything else i have thrown and worse as it is not a heavy oil ball as i thought .On medium shots the ball burns up early and on lung shots with heavy volume the ball slide down the lane i cant figure it out no oil decent in oil hockey puck i have had it sanded to 320 and that didn't help i shot it yesterday on a used sport shot and outside of 10 was flooded .Inside was short oil.when i played inside the ball overhooked when i move right and try to play up the boards great 10 pin ball i am watching the ball rev but it never made a turn shot after shot after shot, ii know that the sport shot is tough but wow. I couldn't even spell pocket i think i was expecting way too much from the ball it really does nothing off of my hand in oil

What a sweet ball. If you have alot of hand, this is your ball. It is great for wanting a ball that will grip the heads and get plently of length and not cross a ton of boards. This is how particles should be made - strong, urethane reactions with not alot of under and over. Just hit your mark and area and you'll rack strikes. Everything carries with this ball as long as you have the consistant fingers you won't leave too many flat 10's. I prefered to shine mine as with all balls so it doesn't hook alot. But it does have an awesome soft arc and drills the pins like a bomb. This ball is truly a weapon of mass destruction. I'll definitly have to keep MoRich in mind. This ball is killer!

A good stroker friend of mine just recently bought this ball, low revs, not a lot of hand, but the ability to hit it when he needs to. He picked this ball up looking for something that he could get a few more boards covered with. All he said to me about it was "Wow". He's throwing it 15 to 5 and still getting it back to the pocket. He second game out with it was a 256 with 8 in a row. There are now two die hard Morich users in El Paso, Texas.

I bought this used off Ebay for $62.00 shipped. Although the auction stated it only had 3 games on it, it was obvious that the coverstock had been altered from its 500 matte factory finish and shined up to about 800-1000 grit. At any rate I redrilled it stacked leverage hoping it might give me the hard rev and flip similar to that of my Shock and Awe. I took it out tonight to put it through its paces and it did not disappoint! On freshly oiled synthtics (THS)I played straight up second arrow with minimal effort (very loose swing) and medium revs. The WMB cleared the heads easily, skidded to about 35 and then went into that all to familar MORICH heavy, powerful roll at about 40-45ft. Shot 235 and 267. It seems much smoother than the S&A with a slightly later flip. The hitting power was awesome.

I may take this beauty back down to about 600 grit as the difference between the S&A and WMB in its polished state is really quite minimal. However, I can attest to the WMB's ability to devastate the rack and to do so in a controlled and predictable manner. I was hesistant to make this purchase given the WMB's love/hate reputation. In my case I love it! Best $62 I ever spent on a bowling ball.

This is my first post on here, so sorry if it isn't the greatest.  I happen to have three of these balls, one for heavy oil, one for medium oil and one for dry.  I bowl in leagues and in tournaments, just started entering tournaments. King Of The Mill set up all three of them, I have no idea what the specs are for any of them.  I have had my highest series with this ball, a 778.  The ball set up for medium is usually the first ball I grab.  I love watching it go down the lane.  It is very smooth going down the lane, and then it just makes those pins explode.  In the past, I have had trouble on dry lanes, but with the WMB for dry, it does exactly what I want.  The heavy oil WMB is the one with my highest series.  Just a great ball.  As far as the conditions, outside of a sport shot, I bowl on just about everything else.

15 lb drilled 5 x 3 1/2 MB up 3"
This Ball has great carry and hits hard on the right conditions. Had bad experience with the Colossus supreme but not with this ball. This on don't burned out as much as the CS and it carry like mad. After 5 game of local turny use 217,204,212,257,251 is paid for !!!  They call me sandbagger when I use this ball. It makes them goes HTF he got a strike with a hit like that????. It hooks little less than my real deal maybe due to the drilling. Another ball paid by the weak ones . Ball can be used on med to Heavy. This play 30th board and Ravage /  will be around 10 Classic Zone would be 8. CZ Red Pin No luck spare at most. When throw on same lane.
Thanks for your donation! Taking more money for the next one! Until then.

I bought this ball about 6 months ago hoping for a more versatile dull ball with lots of strikeability -- boy, did I get my moneys worth!  For the first time ever, I broke 200 for my year-end average and I owe it all to the WMB and the mad scientist that drills my balls -- Don Huss in Sterling, VA (Spares Pro Shop).  This ball will carry light hits all night long and I love the sound it makes when it crushes the pocket, leaving nothing but pin dust in its wake.

purchased two of these balls last year.  One with the pin below and between the fingers.  Ball rolls great.  Love that it never stops turning as it goes through the pins.  The second ball is drilled with the pin at 9 0 clock (I am lefthanded) for a ball that is supposed to arc this ball makes a serious turn to the pocket and more times then not is the first ball out of the bag.  Love both work great on most conditions.  I would say probably 8 out of 10. Have had to some problems with the finger cracking out on almost all of my morich equipment.  I dont know if it due to use or from material used.  But over all they are great.  (THESE CRACKS ARE BY THE WAY JUST STRESS CRACKS NO ACTUALLY BREAKING OF THE COVER YET)

The ball left me with allot of 9 pins.You hit High flush as a lefty I left a 6 pin.Hit light in the pocket leave 9 pin. Hit dead flush pocket 7 pin.My first game it took me alittle bit to find the right line.Once I found the right line I could not miss.The last two games I hit the pocket everytime.And only shot 214 225.I could not string more than 3 strikes.But Like I said if you get lined up and hit your mark you cannot miss the pocket.The ball goes were you put it.I don't know how to list the drilling on this ball.All I know is I told my pro shop guy to drill it to hook as much as the ball can be drilled.It still isn't a ball that you can use in alot of oil.But that don't matter as long as you line up right.It still is a good ball.A very good spare ball to.I only missed 3 7 pins.All was my falt miss my mark.

I purchased this ball in January 2005 and at the time, it provided me with the best month of bowling in my life!  Tossed my first 300 with it and countless 700+ series.  The ball is for heavier conditions but if you have hand you can move inside, get it out and watch it clear the rack.  The downside is I've never had a ball reaction change so drastically after 100 games.  If you are thinking it was due to lack of cleaning or maint, think again.  That wasn't the case.  The ball has been resurfaced (instructions straight from Morich), and performs better than most balls I've ever had... but nothing like it did before.  On a scale of 1 to 10... 7 overall, 10 during the first month I had it.

14# ball. Roughly a 3 inch pin and 3 oz of topweight before drilling. Drilled with the pin at finger height about 2.5 inches from Pap. The mb is just right of thumbhole.

I really like the way this ball rolls. I can't recall any other ball that I've thrown that appears to accelerate at the breakpoint the way the WMB does. It really looks like it doubles its speed when it stops sliding and starts hooking.

The ball in OOB finish hooks too much to be used on the most oil I could find. I eventually put a light coat of control it polish on the ball. This cut down the hook by a couple of boards, but the WMB is still by far the strongest ball I own.

The ball hits with authority. The pins explode off of the deck. Carry was above average, but I did leave various taps despite the hype.

I only have house shots to bowl on. The heaviest of which is a 42 foot pattern on synthetics. The outsides are drier, but it isn't a super wall.

I really couldn't get too deep with the WMB unless I left the pair I was bowling on. The ball would come back from anywhere. The problem is that the shot blows up in just a few frames. I'm constantly moving left with my feet and target. I frequently roll 4 or 5 strike in a row only to have to make a significant move as the ball starts to hook high. I've rolled many good half a games with the WMB but no really good scores with it. It's really fun to bowl with, but I have a hard time scoring with it.

I have put the WMB away as it really hasn't scored well for me. I probably just need more oil. This ball was hard to bag because it just looks so good for short periods. I will try a Vanguard core again in a cleaner coverstock.
The core provides a great look , but I think it was just too much cover for me.


Polished the ball to a mirror finish with control-it. I can now use the ball on the local version of "heavy" oil. The WMB still hooks plenty and gives me area. I really like this ball with the proper surface adjustments. It still needs a higher volume of oil despite A super high gloss polish.

Why does everyone laugh when I bowl?

I got this ball off a guy on Ebay, so I don't know (or care) what the out of box specs were on this ball.  I just know that I could add Vacu Grips and Switch Grip Thumb and not have to plug it.

Pin under the ring finger, cg/MB out slightly, no extra hole.  The ball is legal with static weights, but did not check what they precisely were.

Have been wanting to throw a MoRich ball, they look like they roll so well, when see people using them.

This ball will definitely see some time in my bag, specially on some of the longer PBA patterns.  This ball HOOKS!  Pretty early, pretty smooth, but does not quit.  Very continuous for a Brunswick made particle ball, finishes all the way throw the pins.  Needs oil on the front half of the lane, but if you do watch out.  I want to try this ball on fresh oil during league.  It may be a monster!

I have bowled about 8-10 games with it total, all on a short Sport Pattern.  The pattern was pretty high volume, so there was some carry down, and it played tighter than when freshly oiled.  Still like the ball, hit very good!

This is an oily lane ball.  A notch or two less than a Scorchin Inferno, but still needs plenty of oil.  Hooks more than most of the balls on the market.  Can't see anyone using this ball on dry lanes.  Straighter players will love this on a medium condition, they should be able to open up the lane, specially if you have good ball speed.  Boomers are gonna need oil, and probably lots of it, should be pretty good though, shouldn't have to make it hit.

Had this ball for several months now, should have posted this awhile back.

I have a 16 lb, and its drilled according to the "control" drilling on their website.  I also has a small balance hole in it because of too much top weight.  It has a 4" pin.

Man, is this ball strong!  Too much ball for where I bowl, even with the control drilling.  I recently had it shined up to 2000 and polished, and now its a bit better for where I bowl.  Longer and with a much more powerful backend.  But I feel like I did something to it that makes the ball not what it was designed for.  I do like it, but man, this is a whole lot of ball.  I just haven't been playing it, because I have too many other balls that are better suited to the conditions I bowl on.

SPECS: pin was below my ring finger and the mass bias was out maybe 3-4 inches No weight hole PAP was about 4 1/2 inches out

THS: Oil for 38 feet ten to ten relatively dry on the outside so out of bounds but not much if you got hand it would hook through it. buff to about 42 feet
   Not very spectacular here there was not enough juice on the lane to make the ball hook properly the only thing it did was hit real hard I very rarely used this in league for those reasons.

STATE Tournament: Heavy juice for 42 feet very little swing zone but there was a little unknown buff I can't venture a guess but the backend was a little shaky for other bowlers on my pairs.
    The WMB was in its house I pulled it out for the one ball of practice and it slaughtered the pocket hooked more than anything else around me. I Started about 13 at the arrows and 8 at the break point and man was there oil there!! But the ball carved it up and served it for lunch on a silver platter. WMB would shot down the lane till about 38-40 feet and it would rev up and go nice decisive turn into the pins and CRASH! shrapnel everywhere pins were cringing while the ball was coming at them. WMB was giving me more room than just about anyone else had with any other product it was incredible, and if I missed my marks the balls power would fix the mistake at the pins won alot of brackets that night made a good sum of money!

PBA Regional PATTERN D: You guys that have bowled on this no this is nasty stuff. I Played 15 at the arrows and 10 at the breakpoint ball was very forgiving on this shot which surprised me I thought it would be very ugly. I shot well but I can't  the exact scores but I was in the Top 5 after qualifying. Ball read the lane very easy almost like it was taking a walk in the park, it was recovering from further out than other guys Trifectas and was the most forgiving of any ball on the lane! Not much else to ask for here! A Great heavy oil ball!

layout:  ball is drilled for maximum hook
bowler: left handed stroker

This ball was drilled to give me a missing attack area for oily lane conditions.  I am a stroker and have trouble swinging a ball out and getting it to finish on an inside line. This drilling is giving me that option.  I am able to play (so far) 18 out to 12 and get the ball back to the pocket with no problem. I roll the ball at a slow speed (12.5 to 14 mph) so for me speed is critical. This is a great ball and a wonderful addition to my arsenal.  Thanks MoRich, this is a keeper.

Layout- My own style
Type of bowler- Hard Throwing Cranker (25mph)

this ball is great for a secondary ball for me
i love using this ball when i want an early hook and a hard hitting action
I know that if i hit the pocket
90% of the time i will get a strike
I bowled a 289 with it
along with a 734 series
and i love it for the high school team i bowl on
i made it to sectionals by myself and this ball helped me do that a lot

so if youre looking for a consistant ball that will do what you want it to

All I can say is WOW!! I don't know what the drill is because I bought this ball of Ebay. The pin is @ 1 o'clock. I think it is drilled for med-higher speed with sharp breakpoint according to the drills on I have thrown them all over the years. I currently throw Ebonite and Roto Grip. I bought this ball for 25.00 and luckily I don't have to plug and drill it. I started out throwing 10-5 and moved a little left and threw 20-8 and this is without a doubt the smoothest rolling ball I have ever thrown. The guys I bowl who I have bowled with for years even commented about how smooth the ball rolled. I bowled on synthetic lanes tonight. I started out with 190 and then went 234 and 258 for a 682. The last game was a fast 8 and 7 pin. If all Morich products are like this then they are doing something special there.
Aaaargh. Another freakin' 10 pin!
