THE NOMAD PEARL. This will be the most highly sought after weapon of choice.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5" above ring finger
Mass Bias Position - n/a
CG Placement - 1" right of center
Balance Hole - none
Surface Preparation - Out of Box (1500 Polished)
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
With the new Nomad Pearl I was looking for what I thought would be a good compliment ball to the Nomad that we were testing at the same time. As with most pearlized mid-performance balls I was expecting this ball to be plenty strong so I went with a fairly simple layout.
By placing the pin 5" from my PAP and above my ring finger I was hoping to get the ball down the lane easily and see a smooth recovery on the backend. My goal was that this ball would be a easy transition from the Nomad.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Perfect, I love when things come together. If you already read my Nomad review you will know that it was awesome and reacted a little stronger then i expected but it was still a good thing. The Nomad Pearl did just what I wanted. It would be a perfect ball to go to when the Nomad was getting to be too much. The ball got through the heads easily and did not over react to any early friction on the lane. It kept this motion right to the break point where it read perfectly and reacted just enough to keep me from having to get too deep and lose carry percentage.
Overall I think the Nomad and Nomad Pearl is a perfect 1-2 punch from Roto Grip.
