Ebonite Bash Purple/Yellow/Silver Pearl Reviewed By: Tunaoue 09/25/2007 03:06 ( stars)

Joined a league after 9 years off the alley. I've got no ball, no shoes, nothing'.
Did some research reading the web pages on equipment. Talked to the pro shops regarding my style of play and what the heck is "reactive Resin?" My last ball was the urethane Hammer.
I picked the Ebonite BASH because of following three reasons:
1. The path characteristics were a straight front half and a "good" but not radical back-end. This gave me the sense of control, especially needed for picking the spares.
2. The reactive resin was something I've never tried and heard great things about.
3. The color was COOL. Purple and gold flake with high-lites for a fancy color scheme that was polished and buffed for show.
An added bonus was that it was inexpensive. What a CONCEPT! A quality product that is reasonably priced, and looks great too!
Had the pro shop measure my hand, picked the layout, measured, marked, weighed and balance measured, then marked and measured again.
I picked up my ball the second night of bowling. Threw it for the first time during warm-up.
My established league average was 147 from the week before. My games that night were 216, 234 and 171. 600 series with a new ball after many years of not picking one up. The ball rolled straight for about 2/3 of the distance, then took a definite hook toward the pocket. I rolled parallel to the gutter edge over the 2nd arrow mark. Good noticeable pin-action - it bounces then pretty well. Only drawback is it tended to skid and slide more than I'd like on especially oily lane. The Pro Shop did an excellent job locating and drilling for the finger tip grip. I call it a medium performance ball that yields high results with a mid-level price tag.
Recommended to anyone, highly recommend to mid-level bowlers who want to improve.
