I have recently joined the Ebonite this year and so far thoroughly impressed by the equipment that does not get the exposure that others do. This particular piece is great for me because of the predictability that it given at the end of the pattern. The 3000-sanded cover gives great traction through oil in the front; surprisingly this ball does not lose its energy down the lane. I have had in the past many cover and core combinations “burn up and die” with this grit applied to the surface and use to seeing the ball “roll out” before hitting the pins. The Endure gives me the ability to move in to create more angles to the pocket and not lose the continuous motion down lane.
When polished, I did not have to move in so quickly, as when the ball was dullish. Since the lane conditions are closer to medium ALL the time in Houston, the polish really allows me to stay in the track area longer before having to make big moves left. I love to compliment this ball with the Pivot when the Pivot is too clean through the front and angular down the lane, the Endure tends to pick up in the mid-lane a little better. With the motion of this particular piece, it has quickly gained a place as “one of my favorite” balls right now; willing to go out on a limb to say that this is the only ball close to a V2 in the Ebonite arsenal. This concludes another review, I am Derrick “ToolBox” Woods, catch you later on the lanes!!!

I'm a alley cat that bowls around 20-25 games a week on THS and Sport patterns with an occasional tour laydown. I would be classified as a tweener with a ball speed in between 15-16. All the reviews I have seen have told me this ball reacts very strong for the price. Thats an understatement. I've thrown this through pools of oil and it grips with no problem. My CG is center line with the pin directly to the right of my ring finger. It's a 4" pin placement and the ball laughs through the heads and has a quick, yet very controlled turn once it finds friction. Great ball for the money but it is VERY strong for this price point.

I am pretty new to the hook ball scene and I love this ball. I bought a ball used and it was ok, but since I bought the Endure my average has gone from 146 to 178 and climbing. I am right handed and throw between 13.5-15 mph. This ball really picks up on the back end and when it hits the pocket it sounds like the pins are going to explode. I can use it to pick up a 10 pin as well as the 7. I don't know if this review will help, I just really love this ball. It makes me not want to throw anything except Ebonite. When the lanes have little oil on them I can throw it at the same spot I would normally and hit the pocket on the opposite side, still garnering me the same result; strike. I recommend this ball to anyone who is new to throwing a hook or to those just looking to switch it up.

I am on Ebonite Advisory Staff. I am right handed, approx. 18 MPH and 400 Revs.

I own two of these bowling balls. One is Pin high above middle finger about 1" and CG just left of my CoG about 1/4" at 3000 Polish and a Pin low below ring finger about 1" with CG kicked right of CoG 1 3/4" at 4000 dull.

These bowling balls are aggressive especially for the price. If you want a ball to move like somebody kicked it on the backend, then Endure is your ball. If you are looking for something with not as much kick, look more at the Innovate.

The polished ball gives me a good amount of length allowing me to play tighter lines while giving me the backend recovery needed to shred the rack. The dull ball allows me to open the lanes up if I want to, and who doesn't, right?

All in all, another great product from Ebonite and it looks really good going down the lane and with that yellow tint you are sure to get noticed with this one.
