So the blue thrill has a shorter pin layout. I believe it was something like 40x2x30, and I have mine at 1500 grit sanded. This ball hooked more for me than I had expected. It wasn't lazy like other lower performance balls I've had in the past. It was as strong as my Shock that has much less surface. Follow me on Facebook and watch the new release go down the lane each week.
I was thrilled when I heard about this new release. I love the Hyrda and its angularity so knowing this ball is designed for lighter oil conditions that will give me the control I need when facing drier lanes and encountering lots of friction, I was like YES PLEASE!!
This ball has a brand new Flux weight block and with it having a higher RG to help suspend ball reaction, it will also add additional length when facing lighter oil conditions thanks to low differential and pearl shell. I started up the 8 board and was really impressed with its continuation so I gradually moved my feet and target left. I was able to play up 15 and could get the ball out to about 6 with the fresh 5500 Grit LPS finish. Being speed dominant and having 500 revs I like how this ball pushes quickly through the front part of the lane and then gives me a very predictable smooth motion when coming in contact with friction.
When I threw this ball for the first time, I was surprised on how good it rolled for me. As expected, the Thrill stored up a lot of energy and gave me a good backend motion. Using this ball on light oil conditions is ideal but certainly don't be afraid to add some surface to the ball to give it some more hook. I put the surface to 500 grit to see what the ball would do with some teeth under it and this ball came alive! It was great on my typical house shot and allowed me to move left into the oil more. This ball's continuation is outstanding and definitely a step up in the right direction from the Freestyle rush.
