Hyper Cell Skid vs. Virtual Energy
« on: October 16, 2015, 08:44:36 AM »
How do these two balls compare? I really miss having a pearl asymmetric that has a nice backend reaction. I only have one asymmetric with a non exotic layout. I kinda regret not getting the Virtual Energy when I had the chance and I was hoping there is something out there that is pretty close. Also considering a Crux Pearl, and 900 Global Dream.

Well I just got a Skid to replace my Virtual Energy. I can't give a great comparison yet, I'm 2 months removed from shoulder surgery and just started bowling 2 weeks ago with a 13lb ball.

I threw the Skid for the first time last night, my first time throwing a 15lb ball after my surgery. The Skid definitely has a quick change of direction downlane and a lot of energy at the pins.

The layout is approximately 45 x 5 x 45. I was almost seeing a hook set motion

I got a dream big and for me its a damn good VG replacement.  I could only imagine it's R2X wrapped around that core for the big and regular dream. 

I'd go 900 dream! Easy answer for me...

For me the Skid is just a awesome ball -- It really has some power when it hits. I have 2 pin up/down -- the ball clears the heads with ease, then just explodes the rack!
There's two kinds of music METAL and bullshit!

Also considering the new Critical. I had the original, but I was nowhere near as good as I am now. I didn't understand ball motion as much or bowl on sport patterns.

The Skid caught my interest when Fagan was throwing it to win a major. I don't see as many now for some reason.

I think the dream would be slightly weaker overall. I'd say the dream is more like the gravity shift.  If you could duplicate the 1500 Polish storm oob surface on a dream on I think it would be extremely close......

Is the Skid and Crux Pearl that bad to were they wouldn't be great complimentary balls? I have a ball link to Storm and Roto.
