Need a ball that will produce at slower speeds on broken down lanes.

What are your specs? It's kind of a shot in the dark without some info.

14 mph. I'm a tweener. Other than that, I change up my style often, so I don't want my specs to really determine what ball to use. I want condition. Something that would be best for slower speeds and broken down lanes. Unpredictably broken down lanes.

The two that really jump to mind are the Recon RX1 silver pearl, as well as the Ascent pearl.

Both balls share the same higher RG, lower differential core, but the RX1 has the MotivatorX cover, which is a weaker cover, but it will still read and create angle on the backend. The Ascent uses the MotivatorZ, which, while a step up in strength from the X cover, will still allow you to control the breakpoint, without too much 'wiggle' from carrydown.
Either (or both) would make great additions to the bottom end of an arsenal.

Just my thoughts.

I am an older bowler with a slower speed and bowl on a similar pattern. I usually start the shift with my QZ2. By moving a little left and forward as the shift goes on I can usually use it for all three games. But, if the lanes really dry up, I switch to the Silver Recon. It gives me exactly the same look in the 3rd game as the QZ2 did in the 1st game. So, I don't have to move or change hand positions. Both have the same core, just weaker/stronger surfaces. And, the Silver Recon hits just as hard and even mix the pins even better. I would think the Ascent combo would accomplish the same purpose. If you want a really good dry lanes ball for slower speeds I would certainly recommend the Silver Recon - Everyone thinks its plastic until they see it hit!!!
