900 Global's Bounty offers performance and control on heavily oiled lanes.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 6"
Mass Bias Position - Above thumb hole on center line
CG Placement - just right of center line
Balance Hole - n/a
Surface Preparation - Out of Box (1000 grit Abralon)
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
One of our shops had already drilled a few of these balls. They stated that everyone who threw it got a lot of hook. Not crazy u turn type of hook but strong overall hooking motion.
I figured the only other ball I had in my bag was the Virtual Gravity so I drilled this ball identical to that. This is one of my all time favorite drillings and I use it a lot, especially at the house where I bowl league.
It just seems to roll good there and produces just enough hook without getting me in trouble.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I got what I thought I would get, a really strong ball motion that is predictable and controllable. The Bounty rolled as well as anything else in my bag. As you will see if you watch our video it hooked plenty but you
will notice it was a good type of hook.
I still got plenty of clearance through the heads even with the 1000 grit Abralon surface. In the mid lane it did read the friction a little harder then I normally like but it did not jump off of it. It maintained plenty of energy for a good solid backend reaction.
This ball hit as hard as anything I have. I am sure this would not be a good ball for anything less then medium conditions but if you know that going in then you will be set. For my first time with a 900 Global ball I would say it is worth the investment to try one of these balls. I look forward to more good balls from Texas.
