COMMENTS
Likes: Hook and ability to cover boards without quitting
Dislikes: none
The Mastermind is the strongest ball I have ever thrown but it is a bit off a puzzling ball reaction. I've never thrown a ball that is this strong at the breakpoint that hooks on oil and doesn't quit down lane ever. This ball glides effortlessly through the first 30 foot of lane no matter whether the lanes are broken down on fresh in box finish! If I need more hook I simply add more surface and if not I smooth the surface out some. It is a very simple ball to adjust without having to worry about early hook in the heads. The mastermind will also recover from well from extreme angles. Fifth arrow was in play on our house shot with this ball and nothing else got close. Playing traditional lines it was a full 5 and 3 move left from my Paranormal with a much quicker move. If you are looking for help on heavier conditions pick up a Mastermind and let er' rip!!!!
