My initial thinking was to have the Train replace the Requiem I was missing for my heavy oiler. The Train is no doubt a strong ball, but comes up short to the Requiem in that category. Just missing it by a smidge, and just a smidge stronger than the AMF Mega Recovery. Still plenty of hook in the box for tweeners and above.

For me, the Train gets through the heads well(as long as there\\\'s a bit oil), with a nice midlane read. Strong and continuous on the backend, carrying through the pin deck. Very strong, yet smooth and controllable ball motion, that is easy to read. Reminds me of the AMF Grip\\\'s ball motion. When the lanes start to dry, the Train will find it early, making it easy for you to make adjustments. I found small adjustments don\\\'t work to well, I usually make a 3-1 move left when I see the ball checking up.

As far as carrying, and keeping pins low, your guess is as good as mine. All that is hype and over excitement. My opinion is, make shots, and hopefully they all fall. Make your own assessment after watching the video.

The video is over 5mins long. A lot of shots in there. Each shot in the video is in succession of one another. I left the bad in there with the good. You see the breakdown in the lanes, and the adjustments I made. There is a few shots of the Nuts Pearl, showing you how much of a monster it is on busted up lanes, equaling the hook of the Train. The lanes are 2-3yr old Brunswick Anvilanes. Not much oil, and a lot of friction. I threw the Creature(video included also) on the lane for a game and a half before I started with the Train.

My final thoughts on the Train is, I love the roll of it, the predictability, readability, and overall lane consistency of it so far. That is why I bought two of them. How much more I will like it will depend on the sport shot review. My only problem now is, it\\\'s taking lane time away from my Blackout, Raging Bull Charged, and Nuts Pearl.
