This customer was looking for a ball that would be a good step down from his Alpha Max (30 x 4 x 30). Being as speed dominate as he is I have to look for balls with stronger covers to get ball to see the mids the right way. The Danger Zone has always been a favorite of mine from Brunswick and the Powerkoil 17 cover is pretty strong so We figured this would be a good fit.

Out of the box this ball was pretty clean through the fronts with a fairly strong mid lane move. At this point in time we had not punched a hole in it just to see how the ball reacted before we did. Being as speed dominate as he is we decided to knock the surface down to 1000 with no polish. This made a huge difference in the mid lane motion of the Karma. He was able to move slightly left but now he had a extra 2 to 3 boards miss right. In comparison to his Alpha Max, the Karma was about 6 and 3 right with his feet and more controllable. We then added a P2 hole just to make the ball legal. We did not want to alter this reaction at all!

I see the Karma series working well for many types of players. Rev/Speed matched players are going to match up the best. This is definitely a great compliment to the C-System series.
