Possibly a Pluto?
« on: July 08, 2008, 06:18:03 PM »
I am trying to fill a little hole in my arsenal. I usually bowl on a 39 ft house shot with a medium volume of oil on it. I get to bowl after work usually, so the shot is sometimes a little burnt out. On a fresh shot, my Track Rule Delta 1 works great. I also have had some success with my Black Widow Bite. Lately, I've been bowling and the lanes have been a little bit burnt out. Would a Pluto be a good ball to fill this hole in my bag?

If those are the only balls to which you're comparing the Pluto, it should be cleaner through the heads than either. If you're a treu tweener, as your profile says, you should have enough revs to make use of the Pluto and have it finish properly.

This true only if the lanes are "a little burnt out", that is, the medium-heavy oil is getting depleted and you are now into the "medium" oil range. If it is actually more depleted that that, you may need to add a light polish to the Pluto because you really needed a pearl or a polsihed solid, not a matte finish solid. The Pluto is 2000 grit Abralon, which is 1000 grit US scale.

In general, it is for medium oil or lighter. Both of those other balls are for heavier than that, for the average ball speed/average rev rate bowler.

I consider myself a stroker, maybe even a power stroker and for MY STYLE and MY PLUTO with a 4x4 layout, this ball needs at least medium or fresh oil.  Even though it gets through the heads clean and well, it is quite strong making the turn.

Just to agree with Charlest you might need something different or adjust the surface of the Pluto.

I also would agree with Charlest.  The Pluto should be weaker by a bit and with surface adjustments, you should get what you want.  The Pluto is generally fairly strong, but it rolls pretty even, which should give you the reaction that you're looking for.
