What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I was expecting this ball to be a fairly strong midlane ball with more continuation through the pin deck being a matte finished pearl reactive with a strong symmetrical core. We kept the pin much further from my PAP to get the ball down lane due to my rev rate being higher than average.

As with most high performance symmetric equipment I knew that this ball would be very predictable at the breakpoint. Utilizing a longer pin, we were able to keep the CG lower in the thumb quadrant along with using more aggressive drilling angles to get the ball to read the lanes aggressively.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
This ball was everything I expected and more. Being a higher rev player, I tend to favor the pearl symmetric equipment. Also bowling on more sport patterns I have grown accustomed to taking shine off a ball so that I can use it deeper in a multi game set. This ball is perfect for both fresh lanes and as they break down because it is predictable when it hits friction. Even with the strong length and backend layout used, we noticed that it would not take off once it hits the dry like many other pearl bowling balls do. You can see by our video that even playing more toward the track area of the Tony and Curlie, the ball reads the friction without over reacting and going through the face. With that being said, I was surprised by how well it held line when I moved deeper and provided a nice skid snap reaction.

The predictability of this ball along with its incredible versatility to play different lines on a variety of patterns makes this ball a definite must have. I can honestly say that this ball will be a great addition to anyone’s arsenal whether you bowl on house conditions or tournament. Knowing exactly what your ball will do as soon as it hits the lane is a feeling that is hard to describe.
