Rising SE
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
Ball NPS Score: Not Available
Color   Red
Reaction   Length Aggressive Back End
Coverstock   GEN 2 Reactive Pearl
Finish   4000 Unpolished
Core   Mega Tron
Core Type   Asymmetrical
Inter. Differential   0.035
Lane Condition   Medium Heavy to Heavy Oil
RG   #16/2.48 #15/2.49 #14/2.49
Differential   #16/0.055 #15/0.057 #14/0.055

With the Rising SE (Special Edition) we’ve engineered a ball (for lack of a better word) with the strongest core to date, a single density monster with a cranked up intermediate differential of 0.035, an all-new high. Then we wrapped it all in a GEN 2 coverstock with a performance pearl additive to increase length while storing energy. It’s the closest thing to a remote controlled ball for the slickest lane conditions.

i love this ball. unfortunately with my style of bowling, me and the ball only go to battle on patterns longer than 40 foot. its a bit too aggressive for me and my high rev rates on anything under 40. but i would totally recommend it to anyone

After trying several UpRisings over the past few months, with great results, I was able to find a NIB Rising SE.  With one of the stronger intermediate differentials on the market at .035, I wanted to see how a double thumbed layout would tackle a 2010 USBC Open Championships pattern for our Summer Kegel Challenge Series league.  It\\\\\\\'s only a three person league so you\\\\\\\'re not going to enjoy the same \\\\\\\"hole in the pattern\\\\\\\" created by 10 minutes of practice and 30 games of tear-down.  Truth be told, once you find a way to make this ball turn the corner properly, this will help slow down the transition to the left and allow for gentle migration, especially for those, like myself, who have a fair amount of hand.  Compared to a similarly drilled UpRising that\\\\\\\'s @ 2000 instead of the 1000 the SE is at, it makes a stronger move off of the spot with about 2-3 more boards of hook.  One part cover and one part drilling will combine for those differences.  What I was most amazed at was the fact that this ball, as strong as it was drilled, STILL made a great move to the pocket.  Not a hockey-stick move but a killer comma-like dive to the pocket with deadly continuation.  I cannot wait for the tougher, longer, higher volume shots to find different scenarios to watch this ball shine.  I do not envision this ball being a piece that, with the current cover prep, will be playable for a THS or lighter volume pattern.  But, then again, I wasn't looking for that will this ball and the drilling we chose.  However, I have no doubt that a little polish or compound will help make this a choice to play considerably left of the rest of the bowlers on your pair and use their area as a cushion far ahead of normal.  Hope my info helps you make a decision for your next ball or drilling choice.
Return with your shield or on it.  Strength and honor.  Help control the population of Avenging Unicorns. Arm yourselves accordingly.  MTIXE
