COMMENTS

Likes: Cover stock on the PLATNIUM was aggressive enough to allow the ball to turn the corner off the back of the pattern with no problem. The ball responded aggressively at the break point and will fit well between my Seismic Venator and Euphoria. The PLATNIUM was several boards stronger off the break point then my Euphoria and cleaner thru the heads than my Venator with a similar strong ball movement off the break point.

Dislikes: None

GOING PLATINUM

SPECS: 35X6X35 with a light touch of 4000 abralon pad

Sabre Lanes THS: Older well kept wood surface, 43 foot. Keeping my hand back I can play straighter lines 12 out to 8 or so movement starts about 45 feet very nice motion off the spot.

Adding Hand to the shot I am allowed to play far deeper, 15-17 at the arrows going out to 8 Platinum shows a great ability to recover even from shots missed right of target.

As the lanes transition either release will still allow me to get to the pocket as I move deeper the ability to recover from deeper lines or misses right.


SHORE VIEW LANES THS: this shot on Ebonite Synthetics is kinda funny this season not much volume in the mid lane thus we start with a fair amount of hook but as the oil we end with a very quite backend. Playing the Platinum straight early in the night I can play to the right of most other power guys and delay transition for a few extra frames. Going 11-12 to ten or so at 46 to 47 feet at the break point. This house is known for pins flying up in the air, Platinum keeps them down on the deck while still having messengers coming when they are needed.

HIT/CARRY: As stated above this ball ball is great for keeping pins low on the deck. Messengers come into play when they are needed.

COMPARE: To the BlackOut same Layout, Platinum is longer and more angular a touch harder hitting about 2 boards stronger overall. When Compared to the Original Solaris Pearl the Platinum  has the same shape just less overall hook hit and carry are identical. Overall it is a great Blend of the BlackOut and Solaris Pearl taking the best from both balls and almost combining them into one ball.

Overall: Great Ball it quickly replaced my BlackOut in the bag, for me the Platinum is better overall, where the BlackOut was more pure control. Platinum allows me to play striaghter than most earlier in blocks and as the lanes go I find myself not making big jumps left which is great for a lot of the drier THS patterns people talk about these days. While still allowing me to move in and wheel the ball from the deep when the pattern and lane surface allows.

LANE CONDITION

Length: 39ft

Volume: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): House pattern on worn Brunswick Anvilane. Kegel Fire conditioner (burns up on the blend really fast.) So a little trickier and softer backends than a lot of houses.

COMMENTS
G’Day Bowling Fans!

The new Seismic Solaris Platinum is very useful and being from Seismic, something out of the ordinary. Check out how many ways this handsome ball can be manipulated with release and speed changes. Ball is laid out 4½" pin to PAP, using thumb hole as MB. (See video...)

Back on topic, this is a really nice piece of kit! ; )

Kind regards,
Jason

Likes: Good looking ball - will sell if displayed! Clean front end, controlled backend, still covers as much lane as you want. REALLY adaptable with release changes.

Dislikes: Can pick pick up the midlane suddenly. Keep an eye on your moves and know your  house.

Typical House Shot

Length: 41'

Volume: 25ml

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Modified Stone Stone


COMMENTS
I must say that the Solaris Platinum will be my bench mark ball and love the reaction! I did a 50deg x 3-1/2" x 30deg, which placed the pin above and right of ring finger. The ball came with a 4"-4.5", which I love cause I wanted a low weight hole. I placed the weight hole on the val on a line from grip center through cg. I loved how easy the ball got down lane with a strong move at the break point. It's stronger than I expect, but that's a good thing. The hit and carry is really good and I'm going to love rolling this gem! Great job to Ryan and the team at Seismic. Just my $.02, Bruce

Likes:Love the colors and how great the ball rolls. Clean through the fronts, nice mid lane read, with a strong almost flip at the break.

Dislikes:None except I didn't drill one sooner!
