Because of previous premier balls like the Invasion and to a certain degree the Nano Solid, I was concerned with the ball burning up in the friction and only be able to use it on PBA patterns. Testing it on a 40' THS I was not surprised to see the typical stand left, throw right and watch it bounce off the friction on the fresh. But as the the lane broke down, I saw the energy retain and not roll out like I saw in the Invasion and Nano Solid. I was pleased to see that not only I could finish a set in league with it, but I didn't have to play over the gutter to find oil.

Bowling on the San Marino (40') and Mexico City (46') patterns, I was able to really square up and not give the pocket away without fear of it overreacting like I'm used to when I play a tight line. The vivid is a solid release. Heavy midlane roll, typical of heavy oil asymetric balls, but increasing the rg makes it turn the corner harder without burning out. Well done!
