Well, I've been waiting to get this ball drilled up specifically to use it in my Summer league. I wish I would have drilled it sooner. Right out of the box this ball struck for an even 800 (267 244 289)series. The house has wood lanes with decent head oil, pretty dry backends and outsides. Middles are heavy. The ball was exactly what I hoped. So clean through the front and angular at the back. Entry angle to the pocket was outstanding. The ball did not display the typical reaction from other manufacturers balls in this price range that I have seen (over/under). Instead the Slingshot read the pattern beautifully giving me strong recovery from the outside and even had the nuts to make a turn when I pulled the ball inside my mark. I had such great command of the condition with this piece.
This ball is going to be VERY useful in tournament action. When oil is becoming scarce the Slingshot will be in control. On house conditions with clean backends I highly recommend this ball. You are going to love the strong motion/angularity that this ball provides. Pin carry is outstanding thanks to this. If you're looking for a entry level ball to compliment your more aggressive equipment you WILL NOT be disappointed! Head and shoulders above the other entry level choices on the market.
