House Shot Killer?
« on: January 01, 2020, 11:53:51 AM »
Just looking for opinions as to best low to medium house shot killer in the Storm/Roto line... Kind of leaning toward MVP or Hustle Ink. Thank you in advance

MVP would be my choice.

As someone who has been a little more rev dominant and trended towards matched lately with lower tilt, a house shot bag for me would be:

Idol Pro
MVP
After Dark Pearl (900G but seems pretty closely related to Storm/Roto)

Thank you. My only concern with MVP is I still have a Shatter and original Wrecker. I want to make sure there is not too much overlap :)

MVP has been mentioned many times as a Wrecker on steroids. Similar motion but a little more overall.

If your Wrecker and Shatter are still going strong, I'd keep those and add an Idol Pro or replace the Wrecker with an MVP

I would go MVP Pearl over the MVP.
Current Rotation:
Code X
Code Black
Phaze III
Trend
IQ Tour
Hyroad

I think you should with the hustle ink option that you mentioned; Youíll definitely see a shape difference from the balls you mentioned you already have in my opinion.  As mentioned, the MVPís would overlap too easily.

You really can't go wrong with a fresh cover IQ Tour Solid or Pearl. I have a solid with over 600 games on it and somehow its still got a ton of life left.

Storm Pro Motion.  I would use this on the fresh and then ball down to the Wrecker or Shatter once the PM is getting in to a roll too quickly.

Lighter oil? Ink has always looked money.

This could be because most people think length and backend on house.  The reason I went with the Pro Motion is because his rev rate isnt that high (300-325).  I believe if he stays low end that he is going to have 3 balls that are going to be too close together.  The RG on the PM is still in the low 2.5 area so it wont roll at his feet and with the higher diff it would help with continuation on the back end of the lane and through the pins. 

IF I was his pro shop guy, which I am not; unless he is going to want to replace either the Wrecker or Shatter at some point, to me it wouldnt make sense to put another entry level/mid entry level ball in his hands.  I believe he needs some separation and the PM would give him that without losing control as the PM is not a flippy ball.  Plus, with the OOB surface at 2000, he can adjust the cover up to 3000 or 4000 if he needs a little added push through the front part of the lane.

Your argument would work better for a Phaze 2.  SPEC just is not great on house shot after game 1 regardless of the bowler imo.

Good point.  I didnt even think Phaze 2.

Two hands, Iím glad you explained it this way, Totally agree with you on the overlap; I only suggested my recommendation on him mentioning a house shot killer on the low end, (Other than what he has now).   But he could use another piece in the area you described).
