What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Unfortunately do to issues on my own part I do not have the ball to show you photos of the layout. Trust me I will be drilling another one of these balls identically and I will get the images up as soon as I can.

I was very interested in what this ball would bring to my arsenal. One of the best balls on the market ever was the V2 Sanded and one of the best more recent balls was The One. This brought those two balls together. I wanted something for early on in the night or if the lanes were really oily that would allow me to stay in my comfort area on the lane and still get the reaction I like to see. I always think it is smart to try and find balls to fit in your bag that keep you in areas on the lane that you are comfortable playing in. It makes no sense to drill a ball that will cause you to have to do something or play in a part of the lane you don't like or maybe that you can not play.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Exactly what I wanted. This was not a ball that I can throw all night or even every night for that matter. The Gamebreaker was extremely strong in the front part of the lane. Even from my limited time throwing the ball I could tell there would never be too much oil to use this ball on. As long as there is at least a medium amount of oil on the lane the Gamebreaker stays strong but clean through the front part of the lane.

In the middle part of the lane the Gamebreaker stays really strong and picks up so much roll due to the coverstock and surface finish and the core in the ball. As a fellow reviewer of mine said this is one of those balls that when you throw you feel like you can get it back from anywhere. I don't know if any of you have ever had one of those balls before, but every once in a while you get a ball that makes the right side of the lane seem like you own it. I don't care how hard I tried to throw the ball or what I did with my hand position it came back.

Even with how strong this ball is in the heads and the mid lane it stays strong in the back no matter what. I love throwing balls like this when I can because I never feel like I have to back off of the ball or do anything weird with my hand to keep it on line. This is a great feeling because you can make very strong, aggressive, quality shots every time and know you are going to get the ball where it needs to be at the pins.

For the price the Gamebreaker is exactly what they offer, the best of two of Ebonite's best selling balls brought into one great package.
