Forget all you have ever known about the Virtual Gravity. The Nano may come in the same color scheme and core, but the coverstock makes it feel like a completely different ball. Obviously, I compared the Nano to my Original Gravity (50* 4 7/8" 35* with P4 hole). Even with my above average speed, I found myself playing deeper from the start than usual with this ball. 32-17-6 to be exact (feet/target/breakpoint) with my normal speed and release.

I tried playing the same line with my Gravity, and swear I heard it laugh when it got to the breakpoint, not really making much of an attempt to recover downlane. However, not only moving right, but tightening my line (26-14-8) made the original read the lane properly and finish hard through the pins. Maybe the gap would have been closer if they both had the same layout, but each definitely has their time and place.

At first, I really didn't get the point of releasing the Nano, and moreso was expecting a Hybrid version of the Invasion/Anarcy. All the heresay and videos made me buy into the hype. Seeing the ball come off my hand, seeing it rev up down lane and seeing it recover has me now believing the hype. I got overall ball motion and constant solid pocket shots that I've not seen in quite sometime.

BOTY? Maybe, maybe not. However, it's a very good ball for me that will see the true heavy oil.
