Description: The Eruption Pro had a completely different finishing process than previous C300 balls.  A stronger grit was used under the polish and a slower speed when polishing this ball back up.  This allows the ball to have some bite under the polish but still maintaining its great length. The Pro incorporates a new modified Resurgence Core. You will find the motion of the Pro to offer a great look in the medium to light oil category. 
Reaction: Because the ball is so clean it has allowed me to play some straighter angles on patterns that do not require me to throw left to right.  I've used this ball on a 42 ft house shot and the 37 ft Broadway pattern, on both shots I'm able to stand on 12 and play up 5 with miss room to the right. The Pro easily gets down the lane and comes off of the friction in a strong continuous manner, I am also able to move inside and get the same motion off of the friction.
Summary: I can say that because I tend to play straighter when I can I like this ball so much already because it allows me to play in my comfort zone sooner, yet provides a strong motion downlane.  It also allows me to move in without changing balls and guessing what type of reaction I'm going to get.
If you need a ball that can play up the boards or cover a ton of boards but isn't dead sideways in the back end, pick up one of these on 11/5/13!
