Lane #1's Time Bomb is ready to explode with a new core and coverstock combination.

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5" under ring finger
Mass Bias Position - n/a
CG Placement - just right and below center of grip
Balance Hole - none

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (2000 grit Abralon)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
In the past Lane #1 product has been strong enough for me that I tend to use smoother layouts so that I do not get too much hook.

The look of the Time Bomb gave me the impression that even with its pearl surface it would be strong. With this layout I just wanted to see what the ball would do with a layout that most pro shops use for a variety of bowlers.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
What I got with this smoother layout was perfect. The 5" pin from PAP allowed the ball to clear the heads smoothly while still rolling very strong into the middle part of the lane. As the ball transitioned through the mids into backend it really picked up and rolled as strong as I have seen into the pins.

If you watch this video back you will see for yourself how incredibly strong the ball rolled from start to finish. This ball hit as hard as I have seen from the new releases so far this season. Once I again I think Lane #1 has proved that their ball line s more versatile and stronger then ever.
