I’ve used this ball a lot over the last year and it honestly is a must have on a dry lane. Its ability to hook in dry conditions is such a great addition to any arsenal. I’ve used this ball multiple ways, but the way that works best is playing a straighter shot, and it for sure works. Definitely recommend for a newer bowler or someone who needs a ball for dry conditions.
Now the night I drilled this up there was a worn in house shot. the layout of choice was 60 x 3 3/4 x 30. basically the pin is up and out to the right. and the cg is located just right of center of span.
So on the house shot that was a day old and carried down. the ball kept a straight trajectory down the whole lane. With a slight arc in the back. It's not too strong for a house shot but given the layout and the intentions i have this ball is not strong enough for longer patterns that carry down.
Now on viper, that is a different story, the lack of hook on the above mentioned was a distant memory. the ball had plenty of recovery and little to no deflection through the pins. I started with my target path between 7-8-9 board at the arrows, and kissing the one board at the end of the pattern. When the lanes carried down, I simply moved 2-3 boards right and kept the target the same in the back of the pattern. My margin of error was pretty decent and comfortable. This ball is exactly what I needed for what I have planned in the future.
Remember on the short patterns and drier lanes this ball is the perfect match for them. Longer patterns not so much. Don't forget to get you PAP, Rotation and Tilt mapped out cause you can only drill a new ball once, and as always good luck and good bowling.
What an awesome ball! I will can use this ball out of bag on a house shot or on game 3/4 of a breaking down sport shot. This ball has a great predictable shape whether it is polished or lightly sanded. When this ball hits the pocket it strikes, even if it is a mixer.
Great ball as first out of bag or when the lanes break down, very versatile.
Good light to medium oil ball, nice angular ball motion that I can really hit at the bottom of my swing and it will not overreact. Not the first ball I usually grab out of my bag, but it’s great when the lanes start to break down.
Got back into bowling after a 6 year hiatus due to various reasons and finally got my first 700 series in league with my new Venom Cobra!
