ROGUE ASSASSIN is the ball everyone needs to have. This ball gives you some grab from the cover stock to make sure to carry the corner pins with a controlled backend. It creates the forgiveness we all want and need.
When this ball came out, I was very excited to throw it! The Ghost cover with the trusted Forza core made this ball a must have! The Ghost coverstock gives this ball the ability to read and pick up in heavier oil patterns for a symmetrical ball, the Assassin did not disappoint, and I am so happy to have this in my bag! It is a great fit for when the Ghost is too much and the Fire goes just a little too long to carry the corner pins.
The Rogue Assassin is a great benchmark ball. It is both strong and smooth, giving it the ability to blend out the oil pattern and create a nice, even ball reaction. When the lanes start to transition, this is the ball to go to. The layout I used was 50x3.5"x35 which puts the pin just right of my ring finger.

PAP 4-7/8 over, 1/8 down
The combination of the proven Sigma Core and the Coercion HFS cover (found in the Jackal Ghost) help make the Rogue Assassin a perfect benchmark ball. This ball provides me with a consistent read of the pattern through the middle of the lane, and a continuous motion down lane into the pins. With less hook overall than the Jackal Ghost, the Assassin becomes a great ball on tricky lane conditions when controlling the pocket is a must. This is a must have for anyone looking to add a great benchmark shape to their arsenal!
Just drilled it up yesterday and WOW is this ball good. The hitting power is impressive, but what most impressed me was its versatility and how it got to the pocket consistently even when I missed my mark. Will be my benchmark ball from now on.
