i dont know my specs but i know i have a high rev rate and average 17-18 mph per shot. i drilled mine pin under between the fingers for an early reaction because i thought this ball wasnt going to hook as much, man was i wrong... it hooks more than my rising star, and with the layout it reads early but being a pearl polished at 4000 it still holds and snaps at the breakpoint, this is my bechmark ball from now on no matter what pattern im on. i bowled with this ball recently on the athens sports shot (43 ft), threw it up ten and carried 604 easily.. this ball is versatile and a must have. just to show how much respect i have for the ball, i dont have any hammer equipment except this, im a RotoGrip guy

Great ball throughout the night on a THS. Runs strong through the heads and midlane, without losing energy as is hooks up into the pocket. I have it drilled pin up to go long and break strong. Even as the lanes dry up, I just leap frog inside with a simple 2:1 board move to play back into the oil. Since I stopped trying to overpower the ball and force it deep and back. I started the second Half more smooth and letting the ball do what it likes to. I am carrying a 226 average. Love it.

I was looking for a ball for dry lanes. This one is perfect for that use case. Going down to 2000 Abralon, it allows also to play good results on short oil patterns.

I took the drilling for skid/flip with the pin over the ringfinger.
It saves the energy well, even if there is not much oil left in front of the lane, and shows a very impressive back end reaction with a strong hook.

In comparison to the Vibe Blue, that I played before, it goes longer and more consistent, but hits the pins with the same power.

If you are starting with a hook, this ball is a very good choice, as long as you play at a repeatable speed. It goes very strong through the pins and allows you to play good results on a wide range of lines and break points.

Another advantage of this ball is the very fair price point. You'll get very much ball for small money.

Previously I have always had aggressive balls that were were great for most of the first game, and I would spend the remaining time attempting to figure out where to move and/or throw over, or to all together change to another ball(s) .
I have an impressive arsenal of balls that since I primarily play on \"house shots\" I would most likely go through three balls by the end of a typical night of league bowling, now these same aggressive balls stay home or in my locker, due to my Hammer Grape Vibe.
My Grape VIBE Out of the box didnt produce enough angle to the pocket, so I sanded it down to 2000 grit. The ball came alive at that point.
I have had three 700+ series, and I just threw an 11 in a row strike game for a 290. Drilled properly this ball has the potential to be the ball you always wanted. I am very impressed with this ball.

Ball has great potential, great hook and very smooth when drilled properly to your hand. I'm not a great bowler by any stretch,185 avg I have the ball drilled for a long skid flip and this ball turns a ton, when the lanes get burned up this ball will HAUL Brooklyn if you don't have a line set to push through the oil and get to the pocket. Great Overall ball, just hard to control on a burned up lane condition. Fresh oil, fun ball to run with.
