Good medium to light oil ball with strong back end
« on: April 02, 2011, 11:58:30 AM »
Seeking recomendations for a medium to light oil ball to round out my arsenal of Nano and Victory Road.  I am a medium speed, high tweener with a 180 league average.

 

I like strong back end.   Options so far include:

 - Tropical Heat Hybrid

 - Rising Star

 

What else?   Please reply with your favorite.....

 

Thanks

MK

I know it hasn't been out long, but I've been impressed with my Seismic Euphoria.

 

 Ball is very clean through the heads, but still very arcishly reacting, and plenty strong enough to kick out the corners.

Thanks for all your input guys!  I decided on the Midnight VIBE.   I just happened to bowl with someone in a tournament over the weekend who was using it and it convinced me.  Dark Star, Tropical Heat Pearl and Motiv QZ2 were close seconds.

Thanks for all the feedback guys!  

 

I picked up a Midnight VIBE over the weekend and I love it.  I rolled about 10 games over the weekend on worn down oil patterns throwing from a 20 to 10 postion with great power to the pocket in every game.  The ball did not seem to tear up the oil pattern much so I was able to stay on my line for a good long time.

 

It won't be the first ball I will bring out in a given night but I bet it will give me an edge when house conditions break down and everybody else is getting too much hook.

 

Thanks again,

MK

What layout did you end up putting on your Midnight Vibe?

Love my Onyx Vibe but wasn't a huge fan of my Midnight Vibe. However, I gave it to a friend and he shot 835 last night with it on a THS with clean backends.
