What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I was not really looking for anything specific in this layout. After some discussion with Brunswick's technical staff we decided to go this route based on their recommendation. Brunswick suggests that whatever layout you normally use to go 1/2" stronger with the pin placement. Since I normally test balls at a 5" pin location from my positive axis point we decided 4 1/2" with the locater Pin (mass bias marking) placed at 55 degrees. We wanted to see a strong skid/snap ball reaction from this setup and possible work in another ball from there.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Brunswick nailed this one. I think they hit a ball reaction home run on this one. This is a just what I think most league bowlers want out of a ball and even higher end players will love this reaction.
I started with this ball in league and was determined to use it as long as I could, that proved to be a non-issue with my ball reaction. In the start of the night on our THS (typical house shot) we had plenty of reaction overall. The ball was clean and predictable in the front part of the lane. As it started to read friction in the mid-lane, it handled it really well with a strong ball motion and just continued that into the backends. Overall it hit as hard as any other ball I have thrown this season.
Overall my moves were small all night and most of them were more for carry reasons than ball reaction. Towards the middle of the third game I could have made a ball change but at this point in the night I figured I would finish out with it. I must have under estimated how much this ball likes friction because as the dried out this ball just ate it up and hooked more but stayed predictable.
You can be sure that I will have another Twisted as soon as I can drilled a little weaker for later in the night.
By the way if you wanted a straight up comparison to the Fury Pearl, the Twisted was a little less but in a very good way. I saw a much more predictable and controllable movement and a more desired ball reaction for myself. Not taking anything away from the great ball the Fury and Fury Pearl are but this ball is hot.
