This is a beautiful ball to use on heavy oil. My SC is drilled with the pin 4 1/4" from my PAP. The CG is 1" right of the center line. It's 16lbs, and has a 4-5 inch pin out. I have a high track, throw 15-16 MPH with medium to high revs. Out of box condition is a nightmare because the ball rolls the second it hits the lanes. Even with the long pin out distance it still rolls pretty early. In the polished state it is more managable, but still a monster. It gets down the lane nicely and snaps arcs strongly back into the pocket from anywhere on the lane. This ball ignores all carrydown, OB, and it works well on tournament shots when everyone else can't find a line to shoot. My only complaint is this ball is very speed sensitive, and I am having trouble figuring out how to use this on a long wet/dry condition.
It took a little getting used to. I went from a 115 to a 235 in a 3 games after I got it under control. I wants to hit hard and you really got to find the right line for it. Once you do the thing does not take no for an answer. I just hope that it will maintain the condition with good care. After the break I took I was a little scared in getting such an agressive ball but with a little tweeking it was leaving nothing on the lane. I am looking forward to testing it in some tournaments.<scri
I CAME ACROSS A TEST BALL A FEW WEEKS BEFORE IT WAS RELEASED.VERY IMPRESSIVE.PINS UNDER THE RING FINGER, C.G. IS KICKED OUT.THIS ONE REVS RIGHT OFF YOUR HAND AND DIGS IN NICE AND EARLY.THIS IS ONE OF TWO SANDED BALLS IN MY BAG AND WHERE I BOWL THE CONDITION DOESN'T ALLOW ME TO USE THIS ONE MUCH ANYMORE.NICE EVEN ROLL AS WITH ALL LANE #1 BALLS WITH THE SEPARATED MINI-DIAMONDS.HARD TO CONTROL ON THE REALLY DRY SHOTS BUT I HAVE OTHER STUFF FOR THAT SO IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER TO ME.NICE BACKEND FOR A PARTICLE BALL AND OF COURSE IT HAS THAT BIG LANE #1 HIT.
This is my first Lane#1ball. A friend had it, couldn't get it to work and suggested I try it. There are two ways to use this ball: (1) Normal revs with good speed on oil. Keep it light in the pocket and let the ball do the work. (2) Low revs on wet-dry and swing it to the edge of the dry and -- let the ball do the work. Overturn or low speed is a killer on this one. If you can keep your speed consistent, or at least up, and play the angle, it carries EVERYTHING. Go too slow, or pitch it too much into the dry and its bye bye or ta ta for now. I like this ball alot, but the reaction just takes some getting used to after some of the other stuff I have thrown. As I thrown it more, I like it more. It keeps the pins low, moves smoothly and more than you think. It is not, however, a very versatile ball -- this is a ball that you play where there is LOTS OF OIL, otherwise, get used to the thing hitting the 7 pin. When you can use it....wow.
