I currently have 12 balls in my aresenal covering almost every manufacturer out there. The NVD was the first Ebonit Ball I have ever owned. The ball was by far my best performing ball for the first 60 games. The first 3 weeks I had the ball I bowled six 270+ games. Right now, the NVD is sitting my garage. After about 60 games the ball just stopped working. It still hooks, don't get me wrong, but its not the same ball I purchased AT ALL.

My pro shop operator told me it has abosorbed too much oil and I need to let him "Hook again" the ball for a small fee of $30. Okay, I'm not a big fan of having to spend $30 every 60 games to keep a ball working. I clean my equipment every time I bowl and apparently this ball still soaked up enough oil to kill the backend reaction in under 100 games?

I have a Twisted Fury Pearl with probably 200 games on it which has never changed characteristics since day 1.

If you don't mind buying a new NVD every 60 games or spending the money to use Ebonite's "Hook again" every time the ball gets sluggish, this ball is for you. For me, I prefer a ball that is going to last longer.
