The HyRoad Pearl is a very versatile bowling ball. I was not a big fan of the original HyRoad but the HyRoad Pearl will always be in my bag! The HyRoad Pearl gives me enough length and is strong enough on the backend to get through the carry down. The Layout that I used was 70 X 5 ½ X 70 or pin under the bridge with a weight hole 3 3/8 down from my axis point. My PAP is 5 5/8 over and ¾ up. I am right-handed and a low rev player (rev rate around 300). My ball speed is around 15mph to 16mph depending on the calculations.

I have used the HyRoad Pearl on numerous conditions and realized that the HyRoad Pearl is pretty good on most of them. Versatile is the word I use with this ball. The pearl cover allows you get through the heads and retain energy and core has enough strength to make the turn. The heavier the oil concentration or longer patterns do give the HyRoad Pearl some issues because of how clean the HyRoad Pearl gets through the heads. Surface changes do help with getting the ball to start to hook sooner but in reality…. It is still a pearl. The short to medium patterns with medium concentration of oil will suit the HyRoad Pearl fine!

I used the HyRoad Pearl on Viper and also Athens and on both patterns gave me decent length with a strong but readable backend motion. The moves were simple and was able to just move left and chase the pattern as it broke down. I compared the HyRoad Pearl to the Lights Out and there was no comparison. The HyRoad Pearl was stronger than the lights Out with about the same length. What I noticed was that the HyRoad Pearl was just more readable than the Lights Out. Both balls have a place and the Lights Out needs more dry while the HyRoad Pearl just needs to be thrown and go from there!
The HyRoad Pearl will always be in my bag!
