That is not the real David Ozio that gave a negative review on the Cell Pearl.The real David Ozio lives in Beaumont,Texas and his age is 54 years ago and a PBA member since 1977.Just to let some of you guys know.
I hate ten pins but love the game of bowling with just the right ball to take them out.

Is bad shot making even accounted for anymore?  I've seen the Cell Pearl in the hands of about 30-40 different bowlers of various average ranges in many different centers with varying characteristics and oil patterns.  One thing that the ball had in common over a wide range of styles was the ability to still read strong in the oil and not squirt out of the end of the pattern when thrown well.  You can take any ball, throw it on the condition it was intended for, throw a few bad shots and have it appear to look "allergic to oil" down the lane.  Then again, what ball isn't allergic to oil down the lane?  If it sees enough it's going to squirt, esepcially if it isn't thrown well by the user.  

It's pretty frustrating reading "reviews" and hearing assertions all day about a ball's faults and characteristics and why it "isn't good for ___ type of bowlers".  You'd think from reading that every shot delivered off of everyone's hand with an opinion was labeled down to a tee without any operator error in release or lane playing strategies.

I have yet to find a polished pearl that handles carrydown well...dont know what you guys are really looking for out of this ball, in my opinion it compliments the original extremely well giving you a strong motion downlane when the original cell is hooking too early...

Now knock the polish off of this thing and as Barry has said it handles oil very well...the ball is very tuneable to suit your needs

Boy is this ever right on...i have seen too many people throw strong polished pearl equipment or just something polished in general and the second they miss it a bit at the bottom or throw it a bit faster there is instant carrydown and the ball sucks...

At 2k no polish it becomes a very strong piece, I will keep the Cell Pearl not going anywhere anytime soon.

In Fact I cannot think on a single Rotogrip ball that I have that would be for sale, The Illusion was not great for me but cracked in half so I got a new ball for it anyway.

I do not think they are making a single bad product at this time, If I had the Illusion Pin over ring instead of under it would have worked much better.

I definitely DON'T like mine at all out of the box but I'm going to try to take it to 2k no polish and see if it's any better for me...
