This Forge Ember is AWESOME. Easily the strongest, earliest hybrid I’ve ever thrown. The detonator core is proving to be one of those special cores that no matter what cover you put around it, this core just rolls really well.
I find most use for this ball on higher volumes, fresh and shorter patterns, and also on longer flatter patterns. This ball truly digs through the oil HARD, but still shapes enough down lane to go through the pins the right way when you have to start opening up your angles slightly. This ball WINS
Coverstock: Infusion MXC Hybrid Reactive
Box Finish: 2000 Grit LLS

Forge Ember provides traction and continuation downlane.
Forge Ember is not as angular as Iron Forge, however Infusion MXC Hybrid Reactive is powerful at the breakpoint.
Forge Ember has more length than Forge Fire and Forge Flare, in terms of backend it fits under Jackal Legacy and Trident Odyssey.
Forge Ember is not something I would use on light oil and dry conditions. I would recommend Top Thrill for lighter conditions.

Let’s talk about this special ball here. The Forge Ember is really one of one, crazy! When bowling in tournaments we often find ourselves having to change balls because of Lane conditions. When I’m able to roll with the Ember I find myself able to stay in this ball longer then normal. This new Technology is something unheard of. #getmotivated

I picked up this ball and the Mythic about a month ago. I love my Jackals, so I made the "mistake" of throwing my Mythic first during league.
The next week I pulled the Ember out. Good night! I threw a 777! This thing starts to read the lane, in the oil, but doesn't jump or over react like my Revolt Uprising can. Yet it doesn't slide out and read late like my Mythic. Really, it's a PERFECT ball for me to start out my league nights, and depending on our opponents for the evening, it can be my ball all night long!
It has a very nice smooth predictable motion that you want. For me it's become my Benchmark ball.
I bowled a tourney yesterday that was a "mystery pattern" shot. Ran about 41/42 feet. It was a heavier pattern and this ball picked it up and ran with it, my first 3 games were 695.
I will say when the lanes start to break down, you CAN move in, but I've actually found that moving to the Coral or jumping in and wheeling the Mythic is a better option.
If you are thinking about getting this ball, stop. Just walk into your local Pro Shop and get one coming. It's THAT good!
Bought thinking I needed something a little weaker than the Mythic. I bought this and was blown away by how smooth it rolls. One of the most predicate leaders balls I now own.
