This is without a doubt the BEST ball I have ever thrown in my bowling career. This is also the most forgiving ball I have ever thrown as well.

I had the ball drilled pin up with the CG kicked out, and I have to say it makes it such a nice ball. Miss left of target, it sometimes holds and strikes, but others will hit the headpin, but will NEVER leave a split. In one practice session, I hit the headpin 10 times, and each time it left an easy single pin spare. I also would sometimes miss right, and it did not roll out, but completely change directions and shed the rack. You basically don't have to have a mark but an "area" with this ball. haha.

The finish is very nice, and I like how it reacts on any part of the lane. I usually get it washed and resurfaced about once every month to keep the nice cover at it's best.

Don't believe that it's a GREAT ball? Well how about the fact that I shot my first 300 with it the SECOND GAME I HAD IT. This ball will improve your shot and trajectory to the pocket so well that you just can't pass up the opportunity getting it. I suggest that if you need a high performance ball, take this one above ALL others!

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.
