NOT JUST FOR DRY LANES.



I'm a full-roller with low revs and medium speed. After reading all of the other reviews, I got this ball primarily for dry lanes. I took it in and told the guy to drill it for maximum length and maximum flip. He ended up drilling it so the pin was in almost the exact same location as for my Toxic Hammer (Immediately below and to the left of my thumb.)



It was ready by the beginning of my second game of practice, so I went ahead and used it then. According to the crew, the lanes were heavy oil in the middle up for about 42 feet, and dry on the outer 7 boards. The Vibe loved it. I rolled a 213 and a 230, which was pretty impressive considering I was playing around with several different lines.



The Vibe worked best (for me) if I stood at the center arrow and rolled over the 9 board (right handed). It went almost completely straight through the oil, but when it tasted the dry area, it immediately grabbed without hesitation and roared into the pocket as if it pulled in by a tractor beam. (For comparison, my Toxic Hammer prefers me to stand on the 24 board and roll over the 11 in the same lane conditions.) The Vibe was oddly forgiving when missing to the right...as long as you followed through properly...the more you missed to the right, the more dramatic the angle when it hit the dry.



I've only used if for a handfull of games now, but I love it's potential.
