Ball review:

Lit Pearl is very clean and quick response, but without being unpredictable. It makes it’s move very sharply, but then gets in to a roll which allows for control and great pin carry.
With Lit Pearl being as clean as it is it allows me to use it on really burned patterns without rolling out.

Ball review:

Fierce Phobia gives me the same controllable smoothness from the Phobia, but with a lot more friction in the coverstock. This means I can use it on a lot more oil. Fierce Phobia will do well on fresh medium patterns and if you choose weaker layout even on broken down patterns.

Track Alias

Ball review

The new Alias features some very unique new designs from Track. The core is the same in all weights, the top weights are lower and you can make it symmetrical!
I chose a strong asymmetrical layout for my first Alias and it is good. Lots of midlane and quite a bit of backend. It is a little longer than Paradox Black, but covers probably 5 more boards on the backend. Alias will do very well when I need a stronger ball that I can play the middle part of the lane with.

Hammer Rip’d

in Hammer Bowling

Finish: Box
Layout: 55 x 5 1/4″ x 45
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.48
Diff: 0.054

Ball review:

Rip’D is something special. Strong asymmetrical, shiny ball, so it is clean, but still strong enough to handle oil. What makes it different is how well it continues. This ball just keeps going left when it starts, but still maintaining control.
Rip’D will be something special and something that will allow me to get the 10-pin out more often!

Track Ultra Heat

in Track Bowling

Finish: Box
Layout: 65 x 4 1/2″ x 75
PAP: 4 3/4 over 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.50
Diff: 0.038

Ball review:

Ultra Heat takes the Heat core and combines it with the Kinetic Emerald cover. This is a combo I really like!
It gives me a little more than the Heat, but because it’s symmetrical the shape is a little more round than Kinetic. If there is friction this ball will perform extremely well!


Ebonite Verdict Pearl

Finish: Box
Layout: 55 x 5″ x 75
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 kmh
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.48
Diff: 0.055

Ball review:

Verdict Pearl takes all the good things from the Verdict and builds on them with a shiny, pearl cover. Verdict Pearl is one of the earlier shiny balls I have tried, which makes it a really good stepping stone between dull and shiny balls. It reads the midlane really well, but still has a smooth and very continuos backend.
Verdict Pearl will be a great transition ball when the dull balls are too early and other shiny balls are too weak.

Ebonite Game Breaker 3

Finish: Box
Layout: 60 x 5″ x 25
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.48
Diff: 0.048

Ball review:

GB3 takes the good, old GB2 core and puts a stronger cover on it with the GB12.7 from the Mission Unknown. This makes the GB3 a stronger version of the GB2 with a little more backend.
GB3 will be a really good symmetrical option on higher volumes where you need control and a smooth ball motion.

Columbia 300 Spoiler

by Thomas Larsen on 20. January 2018

in Columbia 300

Finish: Box
Layout: 55 x 5″ x 45
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.57
Diff: 0.057

Ball review:

The Spoiler is a symmetrical ball that can handle a good amount of oil and is smooth and continous. Spoiler allows me to open my angles a little extra compared to other symmetrical balls because it continues a little more.
It will be a good benchmark ball or a good step down from the High Performance balls.



Hammer Blue Vibe

in Hammer Bowling

Finish: Box
Layout: 55 x 4 7/8″ x 45
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 RPM
RG: 2.51
Diff: 0.042

Ball review:

The Vibe is back!
The new Blue Vibe has the same motion as I remember foundly from the old Vibes, but a little stronger. I really like this one on most medium patterns – especially if there is some friction. Clean and smooth without being. Definitely a lot of value for money!

Ebonite Real One

in Ebonite

Surface finish: Box
Layout: 55 x 4 7/8″ x 45
PAP: 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up
Speed: 17 mph
Revrate: 340 rpm
RG: 2.46
Diff: 0.056

Ball review:

Real One really does the role of a strong, shiny part well. It reads the midlane more than most other shiny balls and is still angular on the backend without being uncontrollable.
For me it’s a good transition ball as I can make it read even though it’s shiny, but I can make it do a lot of different things with my hand, which makes it really versatile.
Anybody that liked the original One-balls will also like thr Real One. Strong, shiny and versatile.
