Thanks. I had two typos in the text and fixed those. Learning as I go. Reposted under

Once the Audioswap completes I will delete the old one.

I'll remember to change the color or use a solid background for opening next time.

Suprisingly I have to really come up the back of the ball to tick the thumb. The track actually seems to roll over the pin but I still get a smooth strong roll on the backend. It seems to track away from the fingers in reverse flare, I think that's why the ball moves forward on friction and the other reads the midlane then moves sideways. The boomer does flair almost the same as the other RX1 but it seems to be more of a controled move. Definetly something worth trying (at least on a used ball) for the bowlers who have a rough time getting the ball down lane or controling the reaction, if a pin close to axis don't work for them.

Good luck,

Hey Brett, have you ever drilled a ball with the pin next to the thumb and the mass bias above, or next to the fingers? I'm wondering if I can get the same theoretical effect of taking mass out of the top of the weight block but the pin be in closer to the pap. A buddy of mine drilled a Jigsaw sort of that way, and I loved the smooth move it made on the cheetah pattern. Will it make the ball flare away from the fingers like the Boomer? I have a pluged Black Widow Bite I may try it on just for testing purposes. That way I don't make a mistake of drilling a cruel this way and wasting my money.

Let me know what you think,

Got a chance to bowl on a house shot today with the RX1s and the TZ3. It's gonna be a good year for me on the house shots. Check out the vid.

The RX1 70x4.5x30 is wicked, seemed like I could miss all the way out to the gutter and it would circle back to the pocket.

The TZ3 never quit. Seems 5 boards stronger then my QZ1 overall with a more defined breakpoint. It was sick how far I could go, and it would keep comming back. Looking forward to the C51.
