COMMENTS

The Pivot Point is an excellent complement to the Pivot. I chose the ‘Demo Day’ drill after trying this ball at an event where I worked. This drill is very similar to drilling number one on the drill sheet that accompanies the ball. The polished pearl cover gets through the heads very cleanly saving most of the energy for a very continuous and assertive back end reaction. For me, this drill creates a very heavy rolling motion through the pins that creates carry that I normally don’t get. Many a ball has come off my hand and my first thought is here comes another 10 pin, but it carries. I also get similar results with some very light hits. There is a pretty good volume of oil in that 42’ house shot, but as long as I stay on top of it, the Pivot Point works its magic to the point where I've averaged nearly 240 for the last 6 weeks. Stockholm seems to morph into more of a Viper like condition once it starts to break down, and the Pivot Point gave me a very good look playing a slight swing between first and second arrows. I said in a previous review that the Pivot is one of the best balls ever to come out of Hopkinsville. I have to say the same thing about the Pivot Point. The big E just keeps getting better with every new release. This ball is fantastic and can be used effectively by all bowling styles. Get yourself to an EBI Demo Days at a center near you to try this ball.
