Dual Angle Layout - 90* x 4 7/8” x 35*
Balance Hole - N/A

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (800, 1500 Grit Abranet)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Being an Asymmetric ball from Ebonite we knew this ball would be very angular. With the matte finish we expected it to start slightly sooner than some of their other products, but still flip hard when it hits the friction.

I used a fairly mild layout on this ball so that it wouldn't become overly angular with my higher rev rate. The higher drilling angle combined with the sub 5" Pin to PAP distance should allow the ball to flare quite a bit, but without the knee jerk reaction on the backend.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
The ball was still quite angular once it hit the friction. I can only imagine how hard it would have flipped had we used my normal layout.

Out of box this ball gets down lane very clean with a strong backend motion. Considering the lower grit on this ball, it could do well on a wide variety of shots given a simple surface adjustment.

This ball seemed to flip harder and harder the deeper I moved. It will really change direction in the dry. We noticed as the lanes started to open up it gave a very large margin for error. It would skid longer when pulled inside and recover very well with misses outside.

This ball combined with the new Pursuit S will be a very good 1, 2 punch for any bowler. This ball would be great to open up with on any variety of conditions and allow an easy transition to the S once the lanes start breaking down. All-in-all another great product from a great company.
