If you are looking for a smooth reacting ball, then the C*(System) versa-max is for you! This ball has a very unique motion on the lane that no other ball currently on the market can copy. It clears the heads with ease and when reaching the friction it makes a smooth transaction. This ball doesn't jerk left when seeing friction, nor skate through carrydown. Even though I have a strong dual angle drilling of 45 x 4" x 65 on it, I can play in one area of the lane longer because it doesn't over react. This would be a good ball for fresh conditions, and is the definition of a benchmark ball. It has such a good roll, I want to use it every match in league or every tournament. I have used it for 12 games now in the past week and have left 5, 8 pins on pocket hits as well as shooting a 276 and 279 which included an 8 pin in the 6th frame. The black color of the ball allows you to see the motion easier. It can handle all volumes of oil and works good when the lanes transition. If you need to smooth out the reaction a little more, you can take the polish off by using a 2000 Siaair pad. I had an Anaconda with the same drilling, and this ball is much smoother at the breakpoint. This will be the ball of the year for 2012! I would suggest drilling the versa-max a little stronger than normal because of how smooth of a reaction it has downlane.
