Ball review:

The Game On uses the core from the Lanebreaker and Game Plan, but with a stronger surface; Traxion .042.
The new surface has made the Game On pretty smooth and I think it will be good on medium conditions. It gets through the fronts easily, but doesn’t overreact on the backend, which I think will make it possible to stay a little straighter, when the lanes start to break down.

The Game On is a medium ball and I don’t think it’s going to be a choice for longer oil patterns, but on medium to medium-short I think this ball will have some opportunities.

The Traxion-surfaces generally handle sanding very well and I think this will make the Game On a ball you can add some surface to and then use to control the fresher oil patterns. If you leave it out of the box it will be better suited for broken down conditions, but I don’t think it’s going to force you away from the friction, like stronger balls, since the backend is pretty controllable.
