Review: Gravity Shift
« on: January 14, 2008, 03:27:52 PM »
Ball:
[Storm Gravity Shift]

Original Box Specs:
[15# 2oz, Top 2.82oz, Pin 3-3.5", MB/CG In Line]

Coverstock/Weight Block:
Reactive Pearl, Assymetrical

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Bowler Data:
Right Handed, High Ball Speed, High Rev Rate (Speed 18-19mph at pins),
PAP 4 3/4 over by 1/4 down, Span 4 7/16 x 4 1/2

Layout Selected:
4 1/2" Pin to PAP, 4" MB to PAP, 2" Pin Buffer

Look Created With Layout:
Bowler was looking to create a definately length and STRONG angular motion
from the breakpoint with this piece.  We selected a medium/high flaring
layout, a strong pin buffer to promote a strong move on the backend and a
STRONG MB placement to also promote strong motion at the breakpoint.

Lane Condition:
THS with some slight OOB from 5 to the ditch

Overall Experience After Approx 10-15 Full Games:
We have found that this ball is in a word ANGULAR.  For everyone who
likes to watch a strong motion off the breakpoint, this ball is your
match!   A generous amount of length with the pearl cover.   Compared
to the Original Shift [Definately more length and more angularity].
Compared to Attitude Shift [Way more length and angularity].  My first
impression was that it reminded me of the original X Factor.  Slower ball
speeds may find the backend may become a bit much once the lanes begin
transitioning/breaking down.
