The Pyramid Force. Unstoppable.

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5"
Relation Weight Layout - 5" x 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
Balance Hole - n/a
Surface Preparation - Out of Box (2000 grit Sheen)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
The new Force from Pyramid was designed for heavier volumes of oil. The intent was to achieve a clean reaction in the front part of the lane with an unstoppable backend motion in heavy oil conditions.

I went with a pin down layout to get the ball in an earlier motion and still read the pattern well enough to store plenty of energy for the backends. This layout should highlight the motion intended by Pyramid and achieve a great ball reaction for the fresh condition you see in typical league patterns.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
The Force is strong with this ball.

Before I get into the ball motion I had let me say, this is one of the best ball motions we have delivered from Pyramid ever. It combines everything a bowler would want from a strong matte finish ball. Not to mention the matte black cover looks amazing going down the lane.

Alright so the ball motion was amazing from this ball. Off my hand the ball was clean. It did get through the heads easily but it picked up a super strong roll and read the pattern amazingly. I was able to get right where there were drier boards or go left and get right in the middle of the pattern.

This ball picked up a really strong roll in the mids. Allowing me to see the motion from this solid black coverstock easily. The most amazing part of the ball reaction was the amount of backend I was able create if I wanted to. I literally could throw this ball as far right as I wanted. As long as I got good clearance through the heads the ball just exploded on the backend.

As always from Pyramid we were able to design the block to keep the pins low to the pin deck and increase carry compared to others.

This is easily the new heavy oil ball from Pyramid and a great compliment to the entire Pyramid family of bowling balls.

WOW

Very impressed. This ball hits like a ton of bricks. Get the ball near the headpin and it destroys the rack.

the FORCE be with you.

Stores energy down the lane like no ball I've thrown before.

289 out of the box with a 803 the following night.

I have a been Storm fan for years and still love the product but when I realized I could get two Pyramid balls for the price of one Storm I decided to give it a try since I had seen quite a few in my mens league.

Had bowlingball.com copy my specs and drill the balls. That is the way to go. They did a great job and all I had to do was pop in my switch thumb and I was bowling.

The Force is an unbelievable ball hooks more than any Storm in my bag.

Love Pyramid, you got a new fans especially with all the high tech and low prices. Thanks.

The Force is well worth the money. This is a really high performance ball considering the price. I now have two of my own and drilled two up for two of my students.

This ball works well for high rev players with high ball speed and works equally well for one of my girls that is low rev and only about 14 mph.

Carry is exceptional and I find and see far fewer corner pins.

Great ball.

Friday night was one of those nights. First game started with the Force which has been tearing up this house. On 10/21 I had a very strong 759 with it and was able to stick with it all night. On 10/28 it was just lacking a little punch to the pocket and opened with a 204 first game. When the Force is not strong enough I turn to the Curse for the extra backend. Threw the front 11 before ringing a 10 pin on the final ball for a 299. Then open the last game with the front 6 before getting lazy and letting the ball over drive leaving the 3-6-10. Make the spare and run the table for a 277, 780 series. Being the last night of the month we do a bonus roll-off. I was high for he night so I was the final match. Threw 2 balls of practice and the Curse was over-reacting. Switched back to the Force and open front 4, fast 8, and run the sheet for a 278 for the win!! Final 3 games 854!!

This is the best grouping I've had so far. Everything has a place and it all works exactly the way I expect it too.

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

The new Force from Pyramid brings a new core into the mix with the SG Precessional Asymmetric. It's a medium and differential core which should offer high flare and a strong overall motion.

I used my favorite layout which provides me with a great all-around ball reaction. This layout allows me to change my release and see different results. The GPS Navigational Solid coverstock is a proven winner, so I had high hopes for this ball.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

Let me start by saying that I'm not normally a fan of sanded, heavy oil asymmetric balls. They generally tend to burn up for me and I have carry issues. I normally have to polish them and can only use them on the heaviest of oil.

The Force does NOT abide by my general rules!

First impression: I love the way black bowling balls look going down the lane. WOW, that hooked a lot more than I expected, especially on the backend.

Second impression: This ball really stores energy well for such a strong ball.

Third impression: I'm standing all the way left, throwing it all the way out and I've got 7 strikes in a row. Am I really creating this much angle and carrying this well with a matte asymmetric?

This is my kind of bowling ball. I can move left, get around the side of the ball a bit more and really hit it and it will come back from anywhere. I can also move right, stay behind the ball and see a smoother backend reaction which allows me to keep my breakpoint in front of me.

This might be the first true heavy oil ball that keeps a permanent place in my bag. I love the Pyramid Force! #chooseyourpath

Pyramid Force new release could not wait for the Force. My layout for the Force is 45 x 4 3/8 x 35 my favorite layout for Asymmetric weight blocks. The ball motion I got was smooth roll in the front on heavy oil with control in the backend with out losing the drive through the pins. This will be the ball for most med-heavy oil very easy to change the cover to get a stronger flip or more roll in the front. If you have any questions about layout or surface adjustments call or e-mail me at Ormond Pro Shop. Thank You for giving Pyramid a chance to help you become a better bowler.

I just picked up the pyramid force to try something new. All I have to say is WOW. You touch anywhere near the pocket and this ball destroys the pins and carries momentum all the way through the deck. And as a star wars nerd now I can say I USE THE FORCE! Great job on this ball Pyramid the hype is real.

Recently purchased the Force to fill this void I’ve had in my bag for a long time. Everyone in my leagues throw Alpha Crux, Absolute Nirvana and No Rules when they need a heavy oil Asym so I bought the Force to half be different and the other half because of how much I love my Pathogen. Initial thoughts after a few shots on the fresh was “Wow this hooks”. There is no stopping it when the ball makes the left turn it just goes for days. If you need a Solid Cover Asymmetrical ball then this should definitely be one of your options. For the price you can’t beat it but the performance is second to none.

There are a ton of hook monsters out there these days, It's rare to get hook, predictability, and carry in one,

This ball hooks a ton, allows me to roll lines I've never been able to roll and hits absurdly hard. This ball provides another unique motion, and the backend is so strong yet predictable. It doesn't snap like a pearl rather it turns the corner and rolls like a cannon ball.

I really like the way this ball rolls dull, yet it's a ball that absorbs a lot of oil and shines up quickly. So I clean the ball with Monster Tac after bowling and then I use the turbo grip sandbagger and dry sand it with a 1500 Grit pad. It keeps the ball nice and dull, rolling and hitting the same from week to week.
