DNA Coil Review
« on: March 23, 2024, 08:29:05 PM »
Layout: 4 1/2 x 6 x 0
Surface: 2000 abralon

The DNA Coil brings back the supercoil core paired with the new exo pearl coverstock.  The supercoil core is one of the strongest ones in the current storm lineup.  Originally found on the DNA solid, the core is designed for heavy oil and produces strong and smoother motion.  The new Coil gives a cleaner and higher response for that same heavy oil. 

I drilled this one 4 1/2 x 6 x 0 to put the pin on my axis line to start up on the lane very quickly while giving that more angular motion I have needed.  This layout was used specifically for tournament conditions that have a lot more volume then the typical house shot.  The Coil accomplishes just what I am looking for.   It reads the front and midlane pretty strong while giving a nice angular backend.  The strong core and coverstock combination handles the heavy oil really well and is a great step down from a slower response ball such as the original DNA or summit.  I brought the surface down to 2000 grit because the factory reacta gloss was too long in length at first.   The surface allows the ball to read the midlane stronger and continue better.

On the typical house shot the early hooked forces me into the oil very quickly but still continues well.  If your house shot has a lot of volume or is longer in length then the Coil with a similar drilling would do well.  A more typical drilling where the pin is further from the axis line would be great as either a fresh ball or first transition ball.  This ball is earlier and smoother than the virtual Energy Blackout.
