The Black Panther hunts down pins like no ball before it, taking no heed to heavy oil.

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (2000 Grit Abralon)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Well the obvious intention with the introduction of the Black Panther was to offer another great version of the Pink Panther but for a little heavier volume.

At first glance you think this thing is going to start hooking at your toes and keep going down lane. We thought this layout would offer us a chance to see what the ball can do with a pretty simple layout and nothing too strong to get it started too early.

We fully expected the same great overall motion that we loved from the Pink Panther just stronger.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
The Black Panther is a great compliment ball to the Pink Panther or just a great ball or heavier volume patterns. From the get go of the night I had more ball motion from this ball then any other tested that evening.

The 2000 grit Abralon surface created plenty of roll in the heads and mid-lane without reading any friction too early. The Black Panther handled the oil just the way you like to see it, it did not skid through it but kept a heavy roll and once it started its motion towards the pocket there was no stopping it.

We saw absolutely no deflection from any of the shots thrown with this ball. The Black Panther just destroyed everything in its path. Not to mention I am a sucker for all black bowling balls and I think the Black Panther looks great going down the lane as well.

Lane #1 fans and anyone else looking for that great heavy oil ball will love the Black Panther.
