We received one of these balls through Ebonite's Total NV Pro Shop Promotion. Based on how much we loved our Total NV we could not resist drilling this ball.

We placed the pin 5" from the PAP (5 1/8" over, 1/8" up) which placed it under our ring finger and we put the mass bias at 45 degrees. We knew based on the layout alone this would be strong. Strong does not really describe what we got out og the NV.

We used the ball with the out of box surface on a typical house shot. We normally have more than enough ball with the Total NV or any other polished high performance ball. We still had fun watching the NV get through the heads with ease and make a left hand turn at about 45-50 feet down the lane. The ball reacted so hard that even once it hit the pins it looked like it could have kept hooking.

The NV was easily 8-10 boards more hook than the Total NV. We thought Ebonite had pretty much maxed out their oil absorption time but this shell was amazing. By the time the ball got back to us the oil was gone. This coverstock is like nothing we have ever tested or seen before.

If you have the opportunity to get your hands on one of these balls get it. If not because it was produced in such limited numbers you can only hope that Ebonite decides to release this ball as a sequel to the Total NV. Keep your fingers crossed.
