Ball review:

This ball has a violent reaction when it hits the breakpoint. It goes very far down lane and when it hits the friction it goes left in a hurry. I would use this when i need to move left and bowl coast to coast. It truly just wants to keep going left.

It is the ball that covers most boards for me, so if you need something that lets you get around the corner, GET THIS !

Finish: Box

Ball review:

This is a ball I use on medium and heavy oil patterns especially on fresh oil. Fierce Phobia hooks very early and read the midlane very strong but with a pretty smooth backend

Ball review:

Strong overall hook and I will use both Rip’d and Rip’d Solid on heavy oil patterns. Rip’d gives me more length through the front of the lane with much backend reaction.

Finish: 2000
Layout: dual angle: 55×4 3/4×45
PAP: 6 over 1 up
Speed: 17.8 mph
Revrate: 370 rpm

Ball review:

Fierce Phobia is a smooth ball that works very well on fresh and first transition medium patterns. The ball gives me a smooth controlled curve and rolls straight through the pins. I can use different releases to tweak the motion, without the ball becoming too sensitive. The ball works best staying outside of the third arrow, which is perfect for fresh

Finish: 1000 abralon
Layout: Xhole

Ball review:

Strong overall hook and I will use both Rip’d and Rip’d solid on heavy oil patterns. Rip’D Solid gives me incredible midlane traction with a continuous down lane motion.

Finish: 2000
Layout: 70x5x30
PAP: 6 over 1 up

Ball review:

This ball is strong and early, and it hooks, even with a lot of oil. The cover makes it read the lane despite a lot of oil, and then it turns quickly. I need the outside to be broken down, or a little bit of over under to be able to use the ball. In that case, I can move inside of everyone else and bounce the ball off the dry outside – Really well! It smooths out the over under reaction, with the cover starting early in the oil and the core taking over when it hits the dry.

Finish: Box, 1000 Abralon
Layout: 60 x 4 7/8 x 70
PAP: 4 1/8 over, 5/8 up
Speed: 26 kmh

Ball review:

The Rip’d Pearl is a very versatile Pearl Ball.
I went with a pin down layout and placed the Mass Bias directly on my VAL.
After testing the ball on a couple of house patterns, I changed the surface to a 1000 Abralon for sport patterns.

The ball is very quick response downlane and reacts the dry spots well and maintans alot of energy downlane. I was able to manipulate my hand position and move inside with the ball without losing any energy downlane.

My recommendation – If you are looking for an an asymmetrical Ball with versatility, then look no further!

Ball review:

This ball can HOOK and has a great continues motion. This has been my go to ball on the fresh. I lets me have a lot of control, but still it hits the pins with tremendous force.

It is definitely one of my new favourite balls. I used this ball to help me win the Danish National trio championship 2018

Finish: Polish

Ball review:

Rip’d works when the entire lane is a little bit broken down, and Rip’d Solid reacts too early. Despite being a shiny ball, the hybrid cover makes the ball useful earlier than I would expect. The Black Widow Gold has been a long time favorite, but sometimes, the lane is just not quite broken down enough for Black Widow Gold to get into play, and at that time the Rip’d is perfect. This is a ball to open the lane with, and it needs a little bit longer oil pattern.

Finish: Box
Layout: dual angle: 65x5x45 with xhole
PAP: 6 over 1 up
Speed: 17.8 mph
Revrate: 370 RPM

Ball review:

My Gauntlet Fury goes longer than my Black Widow Gold and it jumps off the spot more than the Black Widow Gold. Despite the similarities in asymmetrical bowling balls with pearl cover and 2.50 RG, I find them very different. Black Widow Gold is more controllable, and Gauntlet Fury turns the corner. Gauntlet Fury is sometimes a little bit hard for me to control because it goes so long and hooks so much. I believe this is a ball that will be clean through the fronts at places with more friction and a good option to open the lane with around other bowlers that beat up the pattern
