I know this ball isn't available on this site, but I'm still going to write a review, b/c I want to promote this ball as much as I can.
I've only been bowling for 2 months (3 months technically, but for the first couple weeks my thumb was so loose I wouldn't even call what I was doing bowling.) Anyway, this ball was drilled with just a standard lay-out, since I (still) don't know what my PAP is.
Even though it's not tricked out for me, this ball still performs so well. For an entry level product, this thing can HOOK. I actually found myself able to play to the right (I'm a leftie) past the headpin at times. And today, I bowled a 210 with it! This thing will carry like a beast, I found myself getting strikes on shots that weren't even that good.
This is a great ball for any beginner and even any intermediate or advanced players looking for a new piece. I highly recommend it.

For the price I highly recommend this ball. This ball out performs many of the high priced balls. I regularly buy balls to replace and this ball surprised me. I am a two handed bowler with high revs. But depending on how you have it drilled, this ball can be very aggressive. If you drill it to react early, it will be much more aggressive than drill for long. I had two balls drilled and both reacted very well.

I have had this ball for 10 months now and i like it just after a while it needs to be baked. Great ball i love ebonite products. My only recommendation is you clean and maintain or it really wont hook and you will leave a lot of splits

This ball exceeds my expectations for the price. I bowled my first 300 game with this ball. About three to four weeks prior I had 280, 279, and a 860 series. My games are much better than they were with other higher priced bowling balls. Great job Ebonite.

I got say I've had this ball for a while,with all the ball's I have for the light oil to dry this ball out performs them all!I've had plastic ball's and urethane ball's this had the length & backend to back it up.I had researched as much as I could to prove myself wrong,the numbers on any of ball's tells me what going to do but til I roll it I don't think there is a ball can beat this one without wearing yourself out getting down the lane and some hand in the ball!!

This is a great ball for the price. I'm telling you I have NEVER seen an entry level ball hit the pocket as hard as this ball. But before you shoot big scores with it (I've shot 299, 279) there are a few preps.
When you buy this ball, I would definitely by a 1000 grit abralon pad with it. The polish can cause it to give you a better chance at leaving corner pins, as well as sometimes missing the pocket. It definitely gives alot more forgiveness.
I also would take it to your pro shop to get it cleaned off with Powerhouse wash after I'd say every other time you bowl (do this yourself for advanced bowlers). This will extend the life of the ball alot longer as not will make the life about a year, where doing this will extend it to about 18 months.
As far as in-depth performance, high speed, medium rev bowlers like me had better be able to play the Walter Ray line. hehe. The ball is also nice on a number of conditions. Threw a 677 on a PBA Cheetah pattern. I noticed that the ball still came back, and recovered nicely if missed right of target. The ball also has some nice carry as coming light also usually means a strike. As I said before though, be prepared to throw a Walter Ray line if you are a high speed medium rev bowler, and the ball will do the work and pack the pocket at a nice price.
I have switched to being a Brunswick exclusive bowler, but I wish Brunswick made this ball, because it would certainly be a great entry level alternative on dry lanes.

This ball is everything I thought it would be and more. Excellent on burnt out lanes. Doesn't over react very smooth through the heads and even roll on the backend.

Only recently started bowling, and have used the house ball in about 40-45 games. My average was a 94 with my highest thrown being a 130, which I was relatively proud of.
First day I got this ball, bowled 3 games, averaged a 114, and got a new high of 131. The second day, my average dropped slightly to a 104 (played ten games), but I destroyed my highest and bowled a 170.
This ball is amazing. I'm not very good at hooking, but I can see and "feel" it wanting to do so, so I know it's just that I need more practice.
It's also VERY forgiving if you mess up a little on the release. I've had several that as soon as it left my hand my mind went "Yep, that's a gutter ball", and sure enough I was able to take out a few pins.
All in all this ball is terrific, and highly recommended from one beginner to another.

This ball is a great bang for your buck. No doubt the strongest cheap ball i have ever thrown. This the second one i have drilled. went pin down on the layout and it a beast on the fresh. I got alot earlier roll with this ball just because of the layout. This ball will go with me everywhere. Bowl to win!
I think it may become my new goto ball.

Here is a good ball for a dry to medium lane condition. It has good length and has a strong movement on the back-end. Would recommend this ball for all skill levels.
