First off, I don't know what exactly my specs are or my PAP and all that technicial jargon, I let my pro-shop guy worry about that. What I can tell you is I'm a lefty with a 14.5-15.0 MPH speed, medium rev stroker. He placed my pin from my observations about 1" below and left of my ring finger. (remember I'm a lefty) The previous ball I've been using is a Hammer Raw Hammer Toxic and I had just advanced to another level beyond that ball. I needed something more for higher oil conditions for tournaments and etc... Out of the box I made an immediate 8-9 board move right to adjust to the ball (again, don't forget I'm a lefty). This ball is definitely alottt more powerful ball from the previous ball I've been using and definitely helps me with the new heavier oil pattern they just started using in league at my local house. I'm not a pro but I'm not a rookie but this ball seems to be just right for what I'm in need of right now. It doesn't absolutely break out of the house so to speak, but then again it probably would if thrown by someone with high revs. It is very versatile from what I can see and can be used by all types of bowlers, be it high rev high speed, low rev low speed, and all in between. I've never used a Columbia ball before but I would 100% recommend this ball for someone looking for a very good upper-mid performance ball. It can be polished to be made to go longer or sanded to hook quicker. Out of the box it seemed almost perfect for me, its a pretty long ball but it doesn't wait till the last minute until it shoots and destroys the pocket. My book average for ending 2007-2008 winter season was around 176 and out of the box my first three games so far were 177, 217, 229. That was not on league conditions and only had a chance to throw 3 games so far. Looking forward to more bowling this week and the coming months. Hope this information helps someone out one way or another.
