Too Hot
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
The Too Hot is specifically designed not to "over-hook" on drier lane
surfaces for increased control. It consists of a clean pearl reactive
2-color cover stock and a .025 (low) differential weight block for increased
length in the mid-lane. The weight block of Too Hot maintains adequate
dynamic energy to generate sufficient backend reaction for carry. The
specifications are: Cover stock: Curelyon Pearl Reactive Cover stock;
Factory Finish: 1500-grit Polished; Color: Green/Gold 2-color cover stock;
Hardness: 76-78 Rex D-scale; Weight Block: Modified 2-piece; Radius of
Gyration: 2.582 (Medium); Differential: .025 (Low); Flare Potential: Med.
(3"); Hook Potential: 15/11 Dull/Shiny on Storm's scale of 1-20; Length: 8
on a scale of 1-10; Backend: 6 on a scale of 1-10; Recommended Lane
Condition: Medium to Dry Lanes

This is a great ball. This is the ball to get!!! I bowled my first 300 GAME with this ball. The ball is great for a person that throws the ball straight and in. The ball has a lot of back end to it. The ball is great for dry conditions. Just buy the ball and try is what it comes down to. The ball is great!!! I rate it a A+

I overlooked this ball too soon. I tried this on oil at first, it wasn't having any part of that, so it went to the closet. Read some reviews, found out it's a dry lane ball and man what a difference. I've been having trouble with lane change and needed a ball for drier lanes. Low and behold I've had one the whole time. Gave this one a try and started averaging 180 for 9 games with it, so far so good!
Bear with me, I'm the highest shootin' lowest shooter, spare missin', lane strugglin' beginner I've ever met!!

above avg speed, med-hi revs, RH
Drilled Storm layout 2
Lane Conditions: Very Dry
Played 10
Weight of bowling ball: 16
Surface of bowling ball: 1500 Polished (Out of box)
Likes: None. Might make a nice spare ball
Dislikes: Rolled and rolled and rolled. That's all it did. Slower ball speeds and higher revs and this ball still barely did anything.

5 out of 10

Style: Power Stroker
Ball speed: 14-16 mph
Ball: 16 lbs 4" pin 3+ top weight
Pin over and between fingers
cg under ring finger
Lanes played: Wood and Synthetic
conditions: Med/Light
I use this ball at league where I used to think the oil was medium. I have since firmed up my release by keeping my wrist firm. I cup my wrist at the top of my backswing. This creates lots of revs or at least more than I used to have. I now play way left. I also don't use the stronger balls I used to. My Deuce gets no play now. My X Factor is my strong ball now. Even at the local tournaments I don't get to use my Deuce. My Too Hot is a step down from my X. Only about two boards at my feet, but my Too Hot clears the heads better. My carry percentage with the TooHot is much higher. If I get it to the pocket, I usally get strikes. I leave easier spares with my TooHot, so my spare percentage is higher also. I don't leave many 10 pins. The TooHot doesn't make a leap at the breakpoint like my X. It is very controllable. It gives length and a strong arc at the breakpoint. My X Factor is still my favorite ball but my TooHot is catching up. I use my TooHot about half the time. It is just stubborness. I should use it all the time. Actually, I could use something a step down with hitting power. Very nice control ball.
