About the Bowler
Bowling Hand    Right Handed
Experience    Advanced (I have bowled in a league)
League Average    231
Ball Speed    Medium
 
I am a once a week, right handed, league bowler and am averaging 228 on a fairly heavy, 43 foot house shot. I guess I would be considered somewhere between a tweener and a cranker and my ball speed is usually between 16.5 and 17.0 MPH. I have had great success with the Virtual Gravity Nano and the Hell Raiser Terror.

I was looking for the Chosen to give me a similar reaction to my Nano with a little more hitting power. The one problem I have always found with my Nano is that when the lanes break down, the Nano reads the early friction and starts to jump on me. When I make the move in, I find that the Nano doesn't recover as well as I'd like and I start leaving flat 10 pins or even pocket 7-10s. For this reason, the Terror has been my ball of choice this season and I only use the Nano on nights that the lanes seem a little tighter than usual.

I had my Chosen drilled with the 5 3/4" x 3 3/4" x 3" layout that Tony Ruocco used on his Orange/Smoke Chosen. Like Tony, I went with the out of the box 2000 grit finish. I got exactly what i was looking for and more. This ball rolls really hard for me just like the reaction I get from my Nano. The difference is that where my Nano may show signs of rolling out due to early friction, the Chosen just keeps on going. I have never seen a ball retain so much energy and continue to drive through the pins. My first night out with it, I left 4 solid 9 pins on what looked like flush hits. There was definitely a learning curve for me as far as the backend reaction of this ball.

Here is the part I wasn't expecting. Although this is probably the strongest ball I have ever thrown, it does not over react to early friction. (Remember, this is the out of box finish) I am still getting used to missing right and not having the ball stand up almost immediately. As long as I am firm through my release and maintain my speed, the Chosen skids through the friction and comes charging back through the back end and the pin action rivals any ball I have ever thrown. Pyramid has definitely hit on an amazing core/cover combination.

This is, without a doubt, the hardest hitting ball I have ever thrown. Between the noise it makes when it hits the pins and the pink/lime color, it got the attention of quite a few of the bowlers in my league. They all wanted to know about the bright pink ball that is destroying the pins. I think that Pyramid has something here that should have the big ball companies a little worried. If I had paid $200.00 for this ball, I would be thrilled with it. At $120.00, this ball is a steal. I can't wait to see what Pyramid comes out with next.

I've chosen my path, it's time for you to choose yours.
