What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
This was the recommended layout from Lane #1.
This layout should produce a strong backend motion with a smoother look in the front part of the lane. Since this Lane #1's first non-Diamond shape weight block in a while we are eager to see what else they have up their sleeve for us.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Well as you will be able to see from our video review the Boom-R'ANG lived up to its name for us. We saw quite a bit of back end motion from this ball with all of our testers. Exactly what you would expect from a ball with its name.

As you see the ball motion on our video you can also see have versatile the ball can be depending on where you like to play on the lane. I threw some really aggressive shots from the typical area on the lane for most bowlers around 15-16 at the arrows and had the ball coming off the breakpoint pretty strong around 5-6 board down lane.

From this part of the lane you saw exactly what you wanted, the ball did not read any friction early and went left off the point down lane. It absolutely crushed the pins from this angle.

I was also able to throw some really good shots from inside the 4th arrow and carry the ball as far right as 5 again, even from this angel the ball came screaming back and had plenty of stored up energy at the pins. I love when I can do this because I feel like no matter what I see on the lane I will be able to find a good spot to get the ball to the pocket from.

All in all I think this is another winner for Lane #1.
