Because this ball has the Tropical Heat core and Hy-Road cover, I decided to drill it with the same layout as I used on my Hy-Road. Because my Hy-Road is the first ball out of my bag and easily my favorite benchmark ball, I wanted something that would be a touch weaker but still make a very similar move after the Hy-Road began to make a dive or check up early.

I can’t say that I got exactly what I was after. Even thought I pushed the pin above the fingers a bit higher than it is on my Hy-Road, I still didn’t get the length that I was wanting. Thus far, this ball seems to want to roll a bit earlier than expected.

That said, I’ve found a good spot in my lineup for the Lights Out. It tends to be a bit earlier than the Hy-Road, but still finishes quite well. I’ve had an opportunity to roll it on house patterns and Cheetah. On the fresh house pattern, I was able to get inside and target around 15 and swing out to 7-8 and get it back to the pocket. The carry was exceptional and overall reaction was quite controllable.

On Cheetah, I used it around game 4-5 of an 8 game block and it was smooth through the heads, but had a far stronger reaction that I really wanted. The early roll made the ball react too strong off the end of the pattern. If I backed off on my release, I could get a decent look to the pocket, but I wasn’t as comfortable overall.

For the price, I don’t know that there is a better ball on the market. Plenty of bang for your buck!
