Layout- Pin below midline and in the palm area 5 3/8", CG kickeout to the right at 3 1/2", Wegith hole Slightly past VAL. (All from PAP)

Surface - Polished with some magic shine.

The reaction of this ball was a great surprise. I was thinking it would be the ball I play at 15 to like 8 and back and it would be nice and smooth. Yet when I played that shot it went so long and snaped so hard that it miss the pocket. I loved that I had to move more left. I had to play more of laydown on 22 send to 15 at the arrows and end up at 7 befor its move would start. Rating 10

I could see it being able to a benchmark ball if you have the right surface to it. Yet I also know it has some over/under problems to it. So I would not recomend this ball as a benchmark ball. Rating 9.5

I can see this being no stronger then a mid condition ball. I dont think it will be able to handel the heavy amounts of oil. Not at all. Rating 9

This balls hits great. Just like all track balls. This is probly the best lowend ball that gives the low hit on the pins that lets them mix around. Truely a great find. Rating 10

Overall comments
I love this ball. I dont get to use it much because I dont drop from my 5.0 to fast. Yet I can see me using alot more in tournaments and big league nights where I need the strength it gives on the lighter shots, right before I have to go to the sppEX or desert heat. Rating 10 and a additional 2 for my stupididy of not using it.

Overall rating
10 for reaction
9.5 for readability
9 for virsatility
10 for hit
12 for overall comments
Overall rating = 9.998

The Crunch Time is one of the best balls track has ever put out. I have had two. Both have had the label layout. If u can find one nowadays I suggest you pick one up, It is so choice.

I've had this ball for about 4 years now. It has a 3-4 pin stacked above the ring finger. It is my favorite ball of all time. The hit from this ball is unlike any other. I have had it resurfaced about 3 times in it's life and it still has a good look on the lanes. I roll with more current stuff now, but I thought I'd dig it out and roll with it tonight in leauge. I wish I could find like 10 of these things. I wouldn't have to buy another THS ball for another 20 years! If you can find one, get one, or let me know and I'll gladly pick it up. Super great ball!!!!
