Cell Review.........
« on: March 24, 2008, 05:57:39 AM »
After watching Hank Boomershine's seminar, i am totally impress with this ball. The design and concept is truly amazing. This ball will definitely be ball of the year. The one thing i liked from watching the seminar is that the way the core is constructed and that no matter how you position the core the diameter of the core is the same. Plus having the differential be the same from front to back is crazy but i guess that's what makes the ball have the awesome finish.

I drilled my Cell last thursday which i bought online from an Ebay Seller. The specs were good except for the pin distance. I wanted a longer pin but it just didn't work otu that way. I tried to get rid of the ball but couldn't. So after talking to some buddies i decided to drill the ball. I went with 55 degree pin angle and a 70 degree val angle. I put the pin 4-1/2 inches from Pap and the MB to Pap came out to be 4-1/2. This is still strong overall.

Last friday i went to a synthetic house where the USBC pattern was layed out. You definitely couldn't swing the ball all over the place of course. I played down and in up 8 to 10 for a while then migrated into the track around 10 to 13. I left the ball out of box. The ball reved up fast in the front and had a continuous arching shape backend. I was very impress how the ball hit the pocket light scattering the pins across the deck and also hitting high flush.
Plus i tried a few hand positions and the ball responded the way i wanted. I have never seen a ball rev up so quickly and charge through the pins. The Cell is definitely a unique ball compared to other top named brands out there.

Also i think drilling aggressive balls a little weaker to save the energy in the back also helps. I think i might get another Cell and put it over my fingers or under but 5.5 inches pin to pap and the MB 5 from pap to get a little more length and backend.

Keep up the great work Hank!

The Cell bowling ball sounds like an impressive piece of equipment. The seminar by Hank Boomershine clearly highlighted the innovative design and unique performance characteristics of this ball. Your experience of drilling and testing it on a USBC pattern further reinforces the ball's potential. The quick revving action, continuous backend, and solid pocket hits you described are all very appealing. Trying different drilling layouts to optimize the ball's performance is a smart approach.
