Likes: One of the most versatile balls I have ever punched up!
Drilled this ball with the pin over the bridge and left (not quite center, but not over middle finger). Pin is about 5 1/2 inches from PAP at 45 degree angle to PSA point.

If I decide to lay into this ball it does a really great job getting through the heads and reading the midlane, followed by a strong controlled left turn on the back end. 
If I try to stay up the back of the ball I get a nice even arc from start to finish. I do not have to worry about this ball overreacting on a medium condition.

When this ball hits HARD. 
If you are looking for a nice mid-level reactive there is no better ball for the reaction, hitting power, and price. Jet has done a great job with this one. 

Dislikes: The polished surface that comes out of the box. Scuff this bad boy and you will love it! When I initially threw this ball with the box surface I had some extreme over/under situations with the ball. All I had to do was hit it with 4000 and the reaction has smoothed out beautifully.

This ball is very smooth... I have it drilled with the pin in the ring finger, cg kicked right 45 degrees. I use it on shorter patterns. Currently throwing it on Stockholm, a Team USA pattern. It reads the midlanes really well and is super smooth off the break point.

For me really relies on fresh backends. Carry down kills my look almost every time. Would be a great ball for beginners or intermediate bowlers.

This ball is very clean through the front part of the lane and has a smooth continuous arc though the pins. I have mine laid out with the pin above finger and cg kicked out.

The ball I compared this with was my 607ASE from Track. I found the Armor to be a little more forgiving than the 607ASE where when playing the hook shot, the Armor was much smoother off the dry than 607. Overall I found these to be very similar and the perfect replacement to my 607ASE.

I would highly recommend this ball to all skill levels of bowlers especially the bowler looking to move up from an entry level performance ball. Once again, Jet Bowling has a winner with this and looking forward to my next tournament.

Good Luck and High Scores!
