This ball is gonna be the new way to look at the benchmark ball. Being someone who never threw a Phaze II and not many of the IQ’s this ball is marketed as that in between ball AKA your benchmark piece. The testing was done at Castle Lanes in Racine on a used oil pattern. For me this was likely to be the best case when I would use the ION Pro. Due to my lower rev rate/higher speed I tend to throw the bigger balls to start even on house shots. I was able to move around the lane some but when on top of the friction this ball started to hook up really fast so as I moved left I was able to roll it into the friction and it was still responsive. Shots that I did get left of target were a little lazy but didn’t overhook as you see with much bigger balls. I was able to play with the surface and this ball took these changes very well without being too clean or burnup. This ball will have a place in anyone's bag as this ball is extremely bowler friendly. 

The ION Pro is available today at Bowlers Choice Pro Shop inside Castle Lanes in Racine, WI or your local STORM VIP Pro Shop

This ball looks good. It didn't jump off the friction and smoothed everything out. It would be nice to see where this ball should be used for most miss room with your type of roll. When you laid it down on about board 20 and rolled it over the third arrow, The Ion Pro looked very nice. I seldom get that far left unless the lanes are really burned up. Maybe your 20 and 15 roll is the best place for this ball for you... Good to have you back in town...
