League Average    212

Ball Speed    Fast
Style    Tweener
I am a 212ish average bowler on 2 leagues at different houses. I would say I am a tweener with 17-18mph ball speed. On a scale of 1-10 for rev rate I would rate myself about a 7. I don't usually play inside but I don't through straight up the boards either. My line is usually setting the ball around 15, 10 at the arrows and 4-5 at the breakpoint. The local pro in my area wanted me to try this ball becuase he wanted to promote it as a ball that would hook on oil even for bowlers with higher ball speeds. He drilled it fairly agressively with the pin located below my ring finger, the cg 1" right off center and a weight hole off the PAP.

The ball rolls great for me but I thats seems to be about it. It just keeps rolling on oil and never hooks up. I can't get much of a read on it becuase I can't get hook out of it on the medium-oil condition. I keep the surface at 1000 abralon. On the medium and dryer conditions I get a consistent mid lane read on the ball but it just burns up at that point and hits weaker than I would like. I now have at least 200 games on this ball and I have had some good games with it but overall I can't recommend it. It may be a good ball on one specific pattern but I just don't find this a good ball for general league use for me. I love lane #1 equipment and I won't let this experience turn me off from their equipment in future. I have been throwing a polished cell that outhooks this ball by at least 7 boards.
