Likes: I was curious to see this ball in action from when I received it. The Amp has a new core (PowerShot Asymmetric) & cover (Overdrive Hybrid) and the core/cover compliments each other very well. There is enough push in the front part of the lane with the Clean N Sheen process of the cover, and this ball is very STRONG mid-lane motion ball that continues through the pin decks.
I compared this ball to my Ratchet drilled with the same layout, and the Amp is about 4 boards stronger overall than the Ratchet was…. So unfortunately, the Ratchet has now been replaced in my bag for the heavier oil patterns. Ended up polishing my Ratchet so when the Amp is too strong, the Ratchet will fill in nicely.
Dislikes: Might be a little too much ball for the lighter patterns, which it is not designed to be in the. There are plenty of options within the Hammer line for the lighter patterns.
This ball should be the 1st ball out of the bag for most style of bowlers in league as well as tournament play. The coverstock is very versatile & easily tunable to matches up well with most medium patterns. This ball does NOT quit in the backends… it is very continuous motion that most styles of bowlers will enjoy to have in their bag. You can move in with this ball and with the new core/cover combo, still turns the corner and smash the pins with the famous Hammer hitting power.
