What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
The Path Rising series offers a entry level performance ball with high performance attributes.

This ball incorporates the same cover found in the Path Origin series with an all new New Era 139 symmetric core. This ball should provide a much cleaner look through the fronts with a strong yet controllable move down lane.

I went with a pin down layout on this ball to increase motion in the mids to the back part of the lane. I expect this ball to get through the heads super easy and allow me to play further right on the lane even after the pattern has broken down a little bit.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I was pleasantly surprised by the ball motion I had with the Path Rising.

Just as I suspected off my hand the ball was long and smooth. This allowed me to move further right on the pattern and really open up my angle into the pocket. Even though we are dealing with a lower performance ball, the Rising was plenty strong for me off the break point and getting into the pins.

I saw just as much hitting power with this ball as I did with other High Performance balls tested. The Path Rising will offer a couple of different options for many bowler styles. For the higher end bowler this ball will allow them to have a ball for when they dry out without sacrificing hitting power and letting them play the right part of the lane. For the beginner this series will offer great looks with unmatched performance at this price point.
