Lanes drying out? Need to go a little longer than the Shock? Need to get past that carry down when you're a little tired?
This Fatal Venom has worked great for me when that's what I've needed. Fresh conditions... not my first choice. Can you or Could you...sure... but there are other better choices, Shock, Coral, etc. BUT... before I put my size 10.5 in my mouth. That's on the conditions I've thrown it. House shot and a few Sport shots. It's not my first ball out. Could there be a condition some day... Possibly, but I don't see this ball as "that" spot in my bag.
This ball is clean through the front part of the lane, and for me has a slight delay when reading the friction, I can get it down the lane a little farther past most of the carry down, then it turns and drives. Because of this "delay" for me, It needs to see the friction a touch earlier than some of my other gear. So a worn shot when things are starting to pull up high, I can grab this and keep going.
Open bowl, my second game throwing the Fatal Venom was a 279. (dang 10 pin) That's pretty tough to argue in my book.
Now it does have its limits where it will burn up and lose energy, But to me that just says it's the wrong condition for that ball at that time. And really, that's super beat conditions, where I'm balling down to my Purple Tank or stepping farther in and grabbing my Supra.
This Fatal Venom is something different. When this ball first came out I bought one and drilled it pin up, 4x25 if I remember right, and I couldn't stand it. I eventually sold it because I just didn't match up with it.
Fast forward to a couple months ago where I came into this Fatal Venom which is pin down and I get along with it very well. It's one of those balls that just gives me a different look than anything else I have.
This ball is very versatile, Shiny cover or duller cover! I recommended this ball to some friends, they bought it and they love it!
Such a great ball. Since the house I bowl in is very dry later on when the lanes get scorched, this ball is so good. Shot my 4th 300 with it and I was so proud of myself for buying this ball.
This ball is amazing! I love that I drilled it pin down for added length on drier lanes. It also is a good ball for ten pins. I play this ball outside and inside.
