First, I'm a right handed bowler, 205+ Average Tweener with speed around 17 mph.

I got the ball laid out 5 x 4 which gives me good length and a very hard rolling motion.

I have about 20 games on the ball already, 12 on a THS, and 7 on sport conditions. I have to say this ball is amazing. It has no problems getting through the heads, even at it's box 4000 finish. It's a fairly low RG ball so you see it start to rev up in the mid-lane. When it makes it's motion off the dry, it absolutely destroys the pin deck.

With the combination of this coverstock, core, and the layout used, I am able to play multiple angles with this ball and still carry well. On a house pattern I've been able to play the track area, as well as deep inside. On the PBA Scorpion pattern I could have played across 5 different arrows with the ball.

If you're a cranker, you'll probably want a weaker drilling.

If you throw it slow, you'll want to polish it for sure.

I can see potential for using this ball in any Medium to Heavy oil condition. I could possibly see it being used in a Medium-Light condition with some polish, but I wouldn't recommend it for extremely dry conditions.

This ball seems to be a hidden gem. I don't see many people throwing it but it's an incredibly solid performer at a good price.
