PhysiX as skid/flip piece
« on: February 05, 2019, 09:46:19 AM »
Along with a surface adjustment, can it be setup to be more angular? Mine goes longish and rolls up nicely BUT I'd like some more length and shape when the flat 10's start after moving too far in.   I am a believer in making small adjustments ... i like drilling the same ball set up as a "ball down".  It has served me well in both casual and competitive leagues.

I was thinking about drilling another one with a skid/flip layout and hitting cover with Step 2.


Is this ball a good candidate for it?

In response to your question, yes it can. Asyms are easy to fine tune especially when factoring surface prep.

Storm is known for their strong skid flip balls. Physix not one of them, very strong, smooth motion. You would be better off with a roto grip hyper cell fused asymmetrical. Or idol pearl symmetrical. Both strong pieces intended for skid flip. I have an idol pearl that is a midlane, backend beast. Tons of these two pieces being used in my area. Both of these balls would fit for what you describe you are looking for.

Easy to fine tune? Iíd revisit that statement.

PhysiX is more of a skid-roll, pretty easy through the fronts for a Nano cover, and strong on the backend, but not flippy at all.

Luke, do you think that NRG hybrid cover grabs sooner than TX-16 on the Phaze II or pushes a bit further down the lane?

In terms of layout, yes. I'm not saying it will turn it into a skid flip monster, but he can get it to shape more than his current one.

Well, I drilled another one with a length layout - the PSA is in my thumb and pin is 4-1/4 from axis. No hole.  I took the surface up to 1500 polish.  I'll report back after I use it.  I expect a few more feet of length and lots of forward roll after the ball corners.  ;D

Really hard to say, different reactions so hard to get a decent read.  NRG in my experience is just earlier than most stuff period though.

I'm curious to see what you end up getting.
Mine already goes long on durable oil but my 2nd one faces up a bit faster.
On regular oil my first one has little length unless I move outside 4th arrow.
I think your 2nd one is worth the investment!

I used it last night on a house condition on newer AMF synthetics, yes it makes a very nice move with lots of length.  To answer my own question .... can a Physix work as a skid flip piece ...... short answer is YES.  Is it a hockey stick. NO  Will it go long and cover tons of ground in the last 10 feet .... YES.

Did you end up drilling the 2nd one then?  Another 3 weeks and you could have had a Halo Pearl . . it's rather stunning.  I'm having trouble waiting until tomorrow to be a typical staffer about it, I can't remember the last ball I drilled that I liked so much that I wanted to go bowl just so I could throw it.

Yes, I did drill a 2nd one.  I liked my first Physix so much that I figured I couldn't lose.  When I read the Halo Pearl had the Fused cover on RotoGrip.com, I opted for 2nd Physix.  We drilled it with the pin over my fingers and the PSA in the thumb hole.  I then took it home at put a factory 1500 polish on it with Step 2. The end result was good length and good controllable backend similar to what I used to get with my Snap Lock but more rolly, forward roll, if that makes sense.

I imagine the Halo Pearl is a more of a hockey stick? I know my Fused was wild until I broke the shine.   I bowl regularly with some past PBA/current Storm staffers, so I'm sure the ball will show up at league shortly.  I'll be interested in seeing what it does.
