Shred the lanes and devour the pins with Lane #1's newest beast, the Bloody Panther.

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5 1/8"
Dual Angle Layout - (Rico Layout) 50* x 5 1/8" x *90
Balance Hole - 6 3/4" from pin through cg (1" x 2")

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (Polished)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
The Bloody Panther offered a new look at the Panther line from Lane #1. The Bloody Panther combined the same great core shape with a Hybrid Reactive cover. The ball looks great out of the box and it had been a while since I threw a Lane #1 ball with this layout.

I was expecting a really strong motion right off my hand with a super strong transition in the mid lanes with a killer back end motion. Usually with this layout I can get the ball back from some really steep angles and not lose any carry. Let's see.


What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Lane #1 fans will be super excited tot how this ball. With the new Hybrid Reactive cover it helped tame the ball off my hand. Which, from previous releases is a good thing. The Bloody Panther was really clean through the heads and absolutely destroyed the rest of the lane.

I could literally get this ball back from anywhere I wanted during my test. I even saw some pretty good hold when I got it in a bit.

As the ball transitioned from the mid lane to the back end we saw this ball come to life. It completely tore it up and put on a turn signal and went left. The best thing I noticed about this ball was no matter how steep my angles got it carried everything. I think total I left 2 10 pins and some of those shots were super steep coming into the pocket.

PAP    6 3/16 x 1/2 down
 
Pin to PAP(6 3/16" over 1/2" down) - 5"
PSA Layout - 5 x 5 x 2.5"

Surface Preparation - Out of Box ( 6421 Compound 2x)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

As a fan of previous Panther releases, I was expecting something between the Black and Pearl Panthers being that this is a hybrid. Good length with a strong, controllable backend reaction.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

I got exactly what I was looking for. The Over Sized Diamond Core is known to provide a strong, predictable reaction and it certainly did on the Bloody Panther. The coverstock provided enough length, but still read the middle of the lane well and transitioned into the roll phase with ease. This is another great release from Lane #1 and should be in consideration if you're looking for a new benchmark ball!

bought a bloody panther, and got is yesterday, triede out yesterday, and o my god what a great ball.
even with it's shiny surface it really reads the lanes very well, and it comes to the pocket with a lot of energy and really hits the pins with lots of power.
im looking forward to try it out on different types of oil.
