About the Bowler

League Average    228
Sport Shot Average    208
Ball Speed    Medium
Style    Tweener
PAP    4 7/8 over 5/8 up
Ball Specs:
15lb. 4oz.
3.25 top weight
3" pin

Drilling Specs: 45 X 4 1/4" X 65. This places the pin just under my ring finger with the CG approx. 2 1/2" left of grip center. P3 weight hole 45 degrees from grip center.

I've been delaying my review on this ball simply because I have not had the opportunity to use it in the proper environment. This ball needs plenty of oil in the heads to really shine. What I get out of it on the local house shot in the Summer months is strong/early revs and a smooth backend reaction. It has been a bit speed and release sensitive on this condition as well. There is just not enough oil to bring this super strong ball to life.
However, in medium heavy to heavy oil..... fantastic. Best look is going straighter up the boards. The increased traction in oil gets this ball firmly planted to the lane surface quickly and the move at the break point is very strong and continuous. I feel this ball will be best suited to high rev players on sport conditions and lower rev players will enjoy this ball on house conditions.
I am going to drill another Revolver with a longer pin to PAP distance to control the track flare a bit. Will post follow up after some use.
