About the Bowler

The Ebonite Tornado Warning is a decent entry level ball. As far as hooking, it hooks just fine for me...good length and then late break at the backend...but then, as a left-hander with a thumb-less release, I can pretty much make any ball hook. I usually walk the 2-3 boards and have it break in at the last moment. I've been using a pretty old Manhattan and decided to step up to a newer ball. So far I like the choice with this one.
It all depends on your style. If you want a ball that will break hard, and early, then no, this ball is not for you. If you are a straight roller, or an unconventional bowler such as myself, then this could be a good ball for you.

About the Bowler

I just started bowling again after laying off for about 20 years or so. So, I wanted to get an inexpensive ball that would hook a little, that I could use at the local bowling alley about once a week. Man, I made a big mistake buying the Ebonite Tornado Warning Purple/Burgundy/Gold bowling ball. I couldn't get this ball to do anything but go straight. It didn't have much carry either. It might be OK for spare shots, but get something better, even if you're just starting out. If you want to throw a hook, stay away from this ball. You could do better with a house ball.

About the Bowler

We purchased the Ebonite Tornado Warning ball for our daughter in 2007. She was ready for an upgrade and was going to be in several tournaments so we felt it was time. Yes it is primarily a straight ball, but if it is drilled the right way, it will have some hook to it. She has used it now for two years and place 2nd in the Texas Pepsi State Championship earning a $600.00 Scholarship and 3rd in the Linda Quayle Tournament in San Antonio earning a $135.00 Scholarship, both in 2007. This is a great ball at a very reasonable price.
