Drilling 4x4x2 pin ended up right next to ring finger.
before I start my review I would like to share with you that the perfect scale on this ball is wrong (213.9). I have a victory Road drilled 5x3 with pin above fingers (perfect scale 185.5) that will out hook this ball by 3 boards and keep in mind the VR has over 50 games on it. So if the VR has a PS of 185.5 then the Pearl Panther should be rated around 150. So do not buy this ball if you like to cover a lot of boards. O.K. now to the review.

I went with the 4x4x2 layout so I would have a step up from my Victory Road in that it would read the mids better. That is not what I got, had to start the ball in the dry to get it to read at all. I ended up playing 8 board at the arrows with at most a 1 or 2 board swing. I have not been able to play a shot like this since reactive resin was introduced. In contrast stood 3 boards right (left handed) playing just inside 2nd arrow (so to not get it in the dry to soon) with the Victory Road. So by now probably wandering why 4 stars. Well I said it didn't hook but it I never said it didn't hit or perform.
I would rate the hook-5, hit and carry-9.5. After throwing this ball I wounder what the SOS looks like going down the lane. So to rap this review up it was not what I expected it to be, but any ball that can mow down pins like this ball (after I got lined up) will find a place in my bag just not above the Victory Road but below it.

Overall if you don't mind playing the dirt you will love this ball, If you love to cover a lot of board you will hate it.
