Ball review:

 

Ebonite Signals is the last ball I’m travelling with when going to tournaments. It  has a long sharp, snap reaction. But what sets this ball apart is that the snap reaction is actually controllable. The first time I tried this ball was during Aalborg International 2011. I pulled out the Signals in the last game and shot 300 with it to make the cut. I mostly use it when the lanes are broken down. This is where this ball shines. It goes through the heads with ease and saves it’s energy for the backend and the pins. A reaction I can’t compare to other balls from Track, Ebonite Hammer and Columbia. Fantastic ball.

Ball review:

The Eruption is a fantastic ball. I find it very stable being a polished ball. The reaction down the lane I see is strong, but with good length and a nice smooth arc on the backends. Very controllable reaction. The Eruption is a sure winner in my bag when traveling to tournaments. I find it’s reaction in the same category of the Epidemic from Hammer, but the Epidemic being stronger in overall reaction.

The Eruption as a whole is a great ball for everyone, because it’s so versatile.

Ball review:

Get used to the ERUPTION! This ball is going to be a huge sucess, and with the original Resurgence core and a modified surface of the Burst, it creates pin action as never seen before. I have drilled my ball with my favourite drilling, and it kicks a lot in the backend.

It can be used on most patterns and it is a “safe” ball to bring at the EBTF-tours around Europe. Buy it before it is too late!

The Gamebreaker is already a well-known ball released by Ebonite, with first release date a couple of years ago. They decided to put it back on the Ebonite portfolio for a while, and no wonders why. THIS IS A GREAT BALL!

I drilled a Gamebreaker for short oil some time ago (with pin in PAP), and were used to a couple of European Men Championships to get an early ball motion. The new Gamebreaker is also drilled to be early, but with the purpose of getting a continuous ball motion all way through the lane. This is exactly what I got, and it works perfectly to my needs.
This is maybe the most versatile ball I got right now, as it very easy to use abralon to change the ball motion. In this context, I can see several similarities to the original Hammer Black Widow (drilled in the same way) which had, to some extent, same nice reaction in the lane.

Ball review:

The perfect match to the outburst. Little more length much stronger backend. One of my new favorites. Good on medium long patterns 37-42 feet.

Ball review:

Medium to strong ball, already one of my favorites! The gamebreaker is very reliable, I put the pin over the fingers just to get a little bit more length and that works perfect. And of course a blackball is always Good!

Track 718A

Speed: 16 mph
Revrate: 380 rpm
RG: 2.52

Hook power: 47.50

Ball review:

The 718A has a long and sharp reaction. Last time I saw that reaction was from the Hammer Hot Sauce Pearl, which also is a fantastic ball. 718A is a ball I use a lot when the lanes are broken down and I have to get in deep to get around to the pocket. Or I use it op the gutter on fresh oil.

I think it’s a bit longer than the Ransom and 715A, men but nearly as strong. Players with a strong hand will love the snap reaction from the 718A.

Ball review:

I put one of my favorite drillings on the Gamebreaker, a welcomed re-release from Ebonite. It works really well on most profiles, I have testet it on. Long and heavy patterns is perfect for this ball, it’s early stop reaction also works well on short oil (championship short).

Ebonite Game On

Ball review:

The Ebonite Game On is for me a relatively calm bowling ball. It doesn’t do anything that you do not want it to do, and that is what I like about the bowling ball. With a typical symmetric core in the mid-performance series, I drilled my ball with my favorite lay-out which I always use for the Hammer Vibe.

After testing and a lot of games in tournaments within Europe, it reminds me quite a lot of the Vibe series. Steady ball motion and relaxed backend does not normally mean a lot of pin carry, but in this case it does. The ball rolls nicely into the pin-deck which takes out all 10 – without any annoying 10-pin due to too much backend!
