second review

gave up 2hand release long time ago, now im tweener, med speed.

ball: i believe about 4 1/2 - 5 from pap, pin above bridge
pap: 4 over
lanes and shot: synthetic (half year old) THS

reaction: clean thru the heads, stores lots energy, move little bit to the right and bang, a very hard arc to the pocket.

i think the house shot is too little for the agent, i would use it for a oilier condition. on fresh oil, the agent is very angular, when the release is good, it carries. However, when carry down and the lane starts dryin up, i only see this ball going back to the bag

story:

this ball was originally drilled by the local driller who charged me 75 bucks for drilling and with finger insert. she did a crappy job and took my money!
gave it to someone else to change the pitch of the thumb (i like the feel of 1/8 rev) the ball had 1/8 forward. we drilled the thumb hole and put a sleeve in. changed the finger inserts (i like the pink one, dont know whats called) and the ball now feels great, when throwin it, i dont even feel the thumb.

now with the ball fitting properly, it was very nice, im more than impressed.
for my gold pin league on tuesday, i went to the place to redrill my agent, and drill another ball (brunswick red crown 3) we were too late for practice, so i got there pull out the agent and started bowling. 7 in a row, then 2 solid 10s (which i didnt spare any of em, had no warm up) to make the story short, i end up with 208 average (4 games, with my last game being in the 150s), crappy but i take it

agent is a very underrated ball, but anyway ppl who has it knows what im talkin about

overall 9/10
--------------------
When a house bowler misses the mark, misses the break point and strike, for many ppl its called a wallshot. When a pro does that its call adjustment

When a house bowler gets his finger stuck in the ball and fall on the lanes, for many ppl its called lame bowler. When a pro does that its called the Machuga flop! ha i like this one.

This ball is awesome. Drilled this ball stacked with 2 inch pin and cg directly below my fingers. This ball has good length and a monster back end. Pin to PAP is 4 and 5/8 Virtual MB is 5 and 7/8. Cover is 4000 Abralon.

Bought this ball while at Nationals after bowling a dismal team event. I was looking for something with good length but a really good snap on the back end. This ball performed beautifully.

Since then, I have used this ball on a fresh house pattern on synthetic lanes and it really blisters the rack. I've shot back to back 750+ series. 258, 249, 245 and 258, 252, 255. I can send it wide and it recovers, or tug a little and it holds nicely.

We'll see how it does on the Chameleon pattern coming up on June 15 through 17th at AMF Chesapeake in Chesapeake Va.

my second review on this ball. (layout  with 4.5 pin & 2.5 top weight)
     P

  0 0
           X - weight hole
     CG

   O
i dont get to use this ball alot because it hooks soo much, but when i do, this ball is sooooo soooo sweet. out of all the balls i have (see profile) this ball hits and carries the best. sends alot of messengers flying around like pin seeking missles, making sure nothing stands. even on burned out lanes this ball still stores energy and kills. onlky downfall is long heavy oil. ball has to has something to react off of.

# of bowling balls = too many

Got this as an X-blem from Allstarbowling.  Have used this ball for just 3 weeks and all I can say is WOW!!  I can go down and in at 8-10 with a little speed,  or toss the big wheel standing on 35 and throwing at 10 with great results!!  Ball can be sensitive to carry down but is a MONSTER on a THS overall!!  If your Special Agent is burning up,  bring out the Agent and watch it leave saw dust in the pit!!  Very Strong ball overall,  maybe the best Storm line ever made in my opinion as far as versatility gos.  You can't go wrong with this ball!!

Got this ball used,pin over and right of ring,
cg kicked out,moved thumb to fit.
This ball really throws the pins around,used it
on friday night league (THS).It took me a few games
to get lined up 170,190,262.Wow,alot of backend
and great carry.It reminds me of my original paradigm,
but not quite as forgiving.
