I guess I will be the 1st to review this one

No wonder no one reviewed this anchor ,I hated it from day one.

drilled up max leverage hole 2 " off axis
used it on wood house shot 10-10

Polished it was weak and hit like a sponge.
Sanded a little stronger but still sponge like hit

Don t waste your money on this dead dog, it was mis advertised as extreme
backend. It was even rolling at best.( for me )

hook-7 sanded
carry-3

I don't know how well this ball has worked for others but I just picked it up and I don't know how I've lived without it. I can't believe how much of an arch this ball has and It stays super consistant. My broplays basically the same shot I do and by the end of the second game, he ball really starts to break down but my ball is still like it was the first shot It also has unbelievable power in the pocket. I highly recommend this ball.

Not sure on the drilling of this ball. I know the Pin is 1.5" to the right of the ring finger with a 1.25" axis hole. My buddy let me try this ball a week ago and I was amazed with the way it read the lane and hit the pocket. My style is like that of Jason Couch only I'm not Left handed. I was using an Ebonite Omega Acrilliym (not sure on the spelling). Well that ball wasn't working on the condition so I borrowed the Roto Grip and shot way better with it. started off with a 149, then jumped to 204 and 200. Anyway, I ended up buyin this ball off my buddy for $15 and have rolled 550 and better since.
