What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Even with all the balls we test, sometimes we open a box and just get a little excited based solely on what the ball looks like. This was one of those balls for me. As soon as I opened the box I knew how I was laying the ball out. It looked like a V2 Pearl to me and I was determined to use the layout I loved on my V2 Pearl.

So see sometimes we do not have anything in mind other then matching up to a older ball that we really liked. I try very hard not to do this but sometimes you have to and since the layout was not anything crazy I figured it would actually be good on this ball.

This layout for me tends to smooth out the ball in the front letting me play deeper on the lane and having more energy to get the ball back using that steep entry angle.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I got what I wanted. I don't care what Ebonite says they did on this ball, it reacts as close to any V2 I have seen yet. I was able to play so deep on the lane and still get recovery that I thought I was back in the day when my body let me play that deep all the time for more then a game or so.

The ball did exactly what i thought and cleared the heads like there was no tomorrow. Obviously the pearlized reactive cover helped but the ball motion was fantastic as it easily transitioned into the middle part of the lane and exploded for me on the backend. As I squared up with the ball I was not as impressed but it rolled good. This will most likely be the ball I throw
when the lanes let me get in and wheel on it.
