What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
This ball was drilled to be my go to ball for heavy oil. I needed a ball for a freshly oiled shot. The layout provides some decent length with strong reaction off of the spot. I also wanted something that would allow me to open up the lanes when possible, yet still provide a strong recovery.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
If this ball does not win ball of the year, then the contest is fixed. LOL! The Virtual Gravity (VG) is the new standard by which all balls are measured. My VG gets down the lane and has a strong midlane reaction and a stronger backend reaction. The VG is a very aggressive ball. When it reads a dry backend, it will turn towards the pocket with extreme intentions. LOL! The VG is one of the hardest hitting balls in the history of bowling. You will be in awe the first time you successfully roll this ball.

The VG\'s strength is its massive backend and hitting power. When you hit the pocket, this ball destroys the pins. It is as if the ball sucks the pins from the deck. The backend is very strong and continuous. I can strike from a variety of angles and I never have to worry about carry with this ball.

As for the VG\'s weakness, it simply needs oil. If there is not enough oil on the lane, just simply put it back in your bag. I have seen so many people struggle with this ball because they refuse to put it back in the bag. As for me personally, I get more use out of my other balls than I do with my VG. However, when there is enough oil, you will be rewarded because it is one of the hardest hitting balls out today. There may be a few new balls that will out hook the VG overall, but there is not one ball on earth that will out hit it. Period!

In closing, the VG is an awesome ball. If you like aggression and you can get used to the idea that you can\'t use this ball all night, then this is your ball. It\'s upside is that when you can use it, it is one of the best oil balls ever. It\'s downside is that when you can\'t use it, you better have something that can take up the slack. LOL!
