I'm a review reader type of guy. I pay a lot of attention to Brian Halstrom and crew, watch the videos etc... The Virtual Energy was described as a ball that goes long, smooth through the heads, stores energy and releases through the pins. That was the ball I needed to for my game. I am also an Ebonite fan, have the original The One and the NVD. I luv them both. My third ball is / was a Brunswick Smokin' Inferno. The Inferno goes longer, than the other two, but is inconsistent, leaves lots of 10 pins. I needed the Virtual Energy to fill that niche and drive through the pocket.

Out of the box with box finish, I rolled, 224, 243 and 212 for an easy 679. The 243 was due to a pocket 7-10 split on a shot I pulled into the oil. The 224 was due to needing two shots to get lined up (3-6-10s). I am a stroker / tweener, and used a down and in shot (feet at 12, ball up 10) as well as a more agressive shot (feet at 18, ball out to 7 or 8) with the same results, all ten in the pit. I'll run this through a few more paces in practice before I pull her out in league play...but then again we shall see.

My league average is 196 and our house shot recently, probably due to the heat of summer in the south, has been light oil from 3rd arrow to 3rd arrow, and bone dry outside of 10 on the right side. Thus the need for the length.
