What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
It has been years since I last threw a AMF ball. I think the last AMF ball I drilled was either an XS or possibly a Night Hawk. Knowing that 900 Global produces these balls, I had a pretty good idea what to expect in overall ball motion.

I went with a stronger layout on this ball to see how much I could get the Hybrid cover to turn the corner.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I was very happy with the reaction of this ball. I was able to really get it to make a nice move as long as I gave it some friction to grab on to.

This ball was super smooth off my hand. It cleared the heads as easy as anything we have thrown in a while.

In the middle part of the lane is where this ball came to life. It was so strong as it transitioned down lane that I could throw it as far right as I wanted and it would come off the point very hard. As you can see in the reaction video I had a lot of "miss" right with plenty of recovery.

I will say that even though 900 Global was making this ball I was still expecting something else but I was very impressed with the ball motion the Mamba Hybrid offered.
