PAP is 5 7/8' x 5/8"up using standard grip layout
O.O.B. 800grit Machine sanded
for most styles I think this is going to be the best surface texture.
Brunswick Pro Anvil lanes
Pattern (Fresh) buffed to 41" Maybe just little flatter than THS.
Lane play was standing on 22 with break point on 6/7 board at about 36-37' (zone 2) for optimum strike shot. Outside of 7 ball had very strong reaction but still hit the pocket with strong carry, with few 10 pin leaves.
This shot held for 2 1/2 games!
Length- ball was hitting break point at about 36-37'.
Backend- Was very consistent with a very strong mid lane reaction.
Overall Hook-When leake out ball made it back from outside of 5 to hit pocket.
Break point- Shape a very strong arc.
I wasn't sure what I needed, so I trusted my ball driller when he suggested this ball. He uses the pearl verison himself. I'm glad I did! This ball reacted just the way I was looking for.
The ball is kind of deceptive at first. The first few throws with it seemed ok I was kind of down and in with it. But it didn't show me much, then I made a adjustment. I moved my feet right alittle and gave the ball a little room to work. What a difference!
The ball headed out and I thought it wasn't going to turn. But the tall core kicked in, it hit the BP and went to the pocket. The ball looked like it rev'ed up as it rolled to the pocket. It held axis tilt and rotation very well.
Very strong hit with good deflection, carried the corners nicely. When I leaked the ball out it still came back to hit the pocket leaving a couple of 10 pins.
When my line broke down I left some 9's & 4's.
This is a excellent medium to oil pattern ball. Dry or shorter patterns would be a problem for me. But polished and with a faster speed player might still work ok.
DON'T BE DECEIVED THIS IS A HIGH PERFORMANCE BALL IN THE MID-PRICE RANGE.
GIVE IT A TRY!
