Wrecker.. Very bad over/under reaction
« on: October 07, 2013, 11:05:21 PM »
 My specs in my profile.

I had my Wrecker now for about 2 months, Pin under bridge , CG at 45 degrees with a small, but deep X-hole.

When I first got the ball it was very flippy, pretty much recover from anywhere on a broken down THS. On fresh I had to tighten my line and play a little belly.

As of late the ball has been very over under,over hooks sometimes and under hooks others. Never a consistent reaction at all. I've noticed this at 3 different centers. I've adjusted the cover up and down with minimal results.

Any ideas ? My Shatter is acting in a similar way as well, but I don't throw that much. My other gear is a nice predictable reaction (Definat, IQ Solid, IQ Pearl), so its not me I would say.

I'm more in agreement with Charlest. I do that to most of my equipment with a 4000 pad or as he stated a 2000 then 4000. I try to put a finish on that I know is easy to duplicate. Nothing against box finish, but I don't want a finish that I have to stand on one foot with a full moon and only on Thursday! lol Repeating a box finish is to troublesome and I'd prefer a finish I can put on with ease. Just my $.02, Bruce

+1. I normally practice with the 5 games first in Box from different areas, then change the surface to what I feel will fit what I bought ball for.

Thanks for the replies guys!


I didn't get a chance to hit the lanes this morning, but am going tonight after work. As far as the cover, grit I wanted to try 1000-1500 on a fresh THS and see what I get and go up from there. I'm not really looking for any certain type reaction or condition ball, just something consistent and I can trust it.

Will report back tonight with my findings

I love the Wrecker. It is a little touchy though, but when I find the right line to play, the ball is money! One thing I noticed and its my error...if I dont have enough speed on it, it will look like heading right for the pocket then the last 6 inches jumps left into the head pin leaving a split. I thought about taking the polish off a little..BUT will that kill the entry angle of this ball? Take away the sharp motion?

I hit my cover on my wrecker with a 2000 abralon pad before each set and I never have over/under issues. This ball has been nothing but Money for me.

The ball is an absolute Truck.  The carry is amazing.  If I do my part with a clean release the ball will destroy the pins.  The ball is still new so I'll be watching out to see if it will develop the over/under reaction in this discussion.

Update.. Got to toss it today on a fresh THS today before league at 1500 grit. The ball definitely rolled earlier with nice arch fashion.. Seems to have cured the over under, but I think anything at 1500 would roll consistent... Will try 2k grit tomorrow
