Ebonite Magic Touch Reviewed By: bowlingball.com reviews by Tony Ruocco 07/01/2009 10:42 ( stars)
Ebonite's Magic Touch is the perfect compliment to the Magic.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 4 1/2" above ring finger
Mass Bias Position - 4" from PAP right of the thumb
CG Placement - just right of center
Balance Hole - none
Surface Preparation - Out of Box
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I was not a huge fan of the Magic, it was one of those balls that just did not roll very good for me. This is not a bad thing just sometimes balls do not match up well for certain bowlers. All the more reason we try and give you a variety of styles on our videos. This way if you throw the ball similar to
one of us we can be your test dummy before you purchase.
Since I wanted to give the Magic Touch a fair test I used the recommended layout from Ebonite. You will see this layout on a lot of balls out there because it is pretty safe and 99% of the time we know what it will
do. It should let the ball get down the lane without too much early motion and make a fairly aggressive move on the back towards the pocket.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Alright so whatever went wrong with me on the Magic was corrected on this ball. The Magic Touch was a totally different ball for me. It rolled just as I would have expected a shiny high performance ball to roll. It scooted
through the front without really reading any friction and made a very strong move on the back. Overall this may be one of the best ball motions I have seen from Ebonite's upper performance line of balls in a while. We have not yet tested the Evolve but to this point the Magic Touch is on top for Ebonite.
