What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I have been testing this ball since Pyramid first designed it. I had the luxury of throwing quite a few of the balls with many different layouts. This is actually my second Hot Pink/Acid Lime Chosen Path and by far it is the strongest of the Chosen's that I have.

This layout was intended to produce a very clean look in the heads with a really strong motion in the middle part of the lane. It also allows me to get in a little deeper and still have plenty of continuation on the backends. It was drilled specifically for fresh patterns when I needed something to read the conditions early in the night.

My first Hot Pink/Acid Lime Chosen Path was drilled with the down and I polished the surface for use in the later games of league. This layout along with keeping the surface OOB (20000 grit) allows me to play the inside part of the lane from game one in league and gives me the strong ball motion I was looking for compared to my polished one.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
This ball is incredibly strong for me. As you can see from our reaction video I was getting plenty of overall hook and it was exactly where I wanted it.

Off my hand the 2000 grit surface clears the heads easily. Of course as the lanes break down this surface with this layout will start to read a little early. On the fresh pattern it was perfect, it picked up a really strong ball motion in the mid-lane and still had plenty of energy for the look I wanted
off the break point. The feature I really like is that with the technology in the core and cover combination I can alter the ball motion very easily with a simple move or change in hand position.

The Chosen Path allows me to make small adjustments to the surface and get exactly the look I want. In the video you can see that I made a small adjustment in my hand position and moved in pretty deep on the lane. The Chosen handled that part of the lane very well and I did not sacrifice any
continuation down lane or hitting power at the pins.

I am very excited to be part of Pyramid's first High Performance ball release. We feel that this ball will offer a wide variety of bowlers a very strong piece of equipment that will match up to many different lane conditions. Another nice addition is that the Chosen Path is available in two colors. This is the first time that a High Performance ball is being offered with a color option.
