Bowling Ball Reviews: Track Mako

The Track Mako gave us a shorter skid through the head area of the lane with a longer and smoother transition in the mid-lane and an angular shape bowling ball motion, it had even transitions in all three zone. Worked well on heavier oil patterns, with very good continuation with a strong hit. We felt the Track Mako would be best used as a first game ball on medium heavy and long patterns. We put this in the controlled motion type bowling ball. A good ball for playing a medium line on fresh medium heavy patterns and direct line on heavier lane conditions and a good complement for the original Paradox. You will need some oil for this ball to work at peak performance of this bowling ball. Conclusion: The Track Mako was able to hit the pocket on the fresh even when some shots got right of where we wanted. This ball is great if you need some hook and continuation through the pins!

Description: The new Mako core follows in the footsteps of the Paradox by offering Track’s 2nd dual density core design. The dual densities allow the designers to create a more exact ball reaction. Low RG and High Differential for max response in oil.

The QR-10 Solid is the strongest coverstock in the Track lineup, offering amazing traction in oil. With this cover/core combination, you will see a ball that reads the lane through the oil which creates proper angle and strong, smooth continuation through the pins.

Bowling Ball Reviews: Hammer Gauntlet

Hammer Gauntlet, Bowling Ball Reviews, Hammer Bowling Ball Reviews

The Hammer Gauntlet gave us a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the Gauntlet has a more arcing/angular motion and revs up in the back-end, we found the Gauntlet to be a smoother type ball motion and had very good continuation. We felt the Gauntlet would be best used as a first game ball on medium to heavier and longer lane patterns. A good bowling ball for playing a medium line on medium oil or direct line on heavy oil patterns. We put this in the controlled motion type bowling ball motion. You will need some oil but don’t have to be flooded for peak performance of this bowling ball. A strong ball from Hammer.

Description: Returning is the extremely strong Semtex CFI coverstock from the Scandal, only this time we’ve used a hybrid version. This is the strongest cover in Hammer’s history. Heavy oil is no match.However, this time we didn’t try to tame the reaction with a symmetric core. The new Gauntlet Asymmetric core was designed to maximize hook and continuation on heavy oil. The Gauntlet will have more overall hook and more angularity than the Scandal.

Specs: RG: 2.51 – Finish: Matte – Ball Color: Orange/Black/Silver – Lane Condition: Heavy – Coverstock: Hybrid Reactive – Ball Quality: First Quality – Ball Warranty: 3 Year – Factory Finish: 500/2000 Abralon – Breakpoint Shape: Aggressive Mid-lane & Backend – Coverstock Name: Semtex Hybrid CFI – Core Name: Gauntlet – Differential: 0.050 – Flare Potential: Medium-High – Mass Bias Diff: 0.012 – Core Type: Asymmetric – Performance: Pro Performance[10] – Bowling Ball Release

Bowling Ball Reviews: Hammer Rebel Solid

Hammer Rebel Solid, Bowling Ball Reviews, Hammer Bowling Ball Reviews

The Hammer Rebel Solid gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the Hammer Rebel Solid has a little hook and set type ball motion even though it was angular, the rebel solid was smoother then the original rebel this do to the solid cover-stock rather than pearl and a good compliment. The Rebel Solid would be best used on heavier medium to longer lane patterns and good for blending out the wet/dry and offering control in the backends and it a a good upper mid price point bowling ball. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Description: The new Rebel Core uses technology designed to create extra revs for bowlers, increasing ball reaction. The low RH and medium-high differential allows the ball to read the midlane and pick up a strong roll. The NBT Solid overstock finished to a 500/2000 Abralon Matte surface bites hard and delivers strong overall hook on Medium to Heavy Oil.

Hammer Phobia: Bowling Ball Review
The Hammer Phobia gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the phobia has a more angular motion and a more controlled reaction, this do to the symmetric core. has a nice motion and good compliment to the Hammer Dark Legend. The Phobia would be best used on medium heavy oil patterns or as a second game ball after the shot opens up. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Description: The powerful Semtex Pearl coverstock provides a powerful skid/snap reaction on medium to heavy oil conditions. Polished to a 500/1000 Abralon w/Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish finish, the Phobia skids easily through the heads for a devastating and fearsome backend.

Hammer Scandal Pearl: Bowling Ball Review

The hammer scandal pearl gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads and sharp motion through the pins. It has more mid-lane and overall roll than the average pearl. Good ball for all types of bowlers from strokers to crankers. In addition, the Scandal Is a good ball on the heavier medium to heavy lane patterns. The great thing about this strong rolling ball is you can keep moving left and the ball does not stop moving toward the pocket.

Ebonite Maverick: Bowling Ball Review
TThe Maverick is a great compliment for the Columbia Tyrant. As the games go on and the Tyrant is becoming to much. We switched to the Ebonite Maverick for a foot or two of extra length and a ton of controllable bowling ball motion down lane. On the fresh the Maverick will turn over a bit, we recommend adjusting the surface with a 3000 abralon pad to allow it to pick up just a bit sooner. This way the shape will be even more controllable in the beginning of the night…

Description: The Maverick takes the amazing Warrior asymmetric core and modifies it to create more backend hook. The high differential will create extra flare which aides in providing outstanding continuation.

Pair this with the GB 14.0 Solid reactive coverstock, finished at 500/2000 Abralon, and you’ve got a ball that will create traction in the heaviest of oil.

 DV8 Vandel Smash, DV8 Bowling Ball, Reviews, bowling ball reviews, bowling ball review, video, DV8 Bowling Ball Review, DV8 Bowling Ball Videos

DV8 Vandal Smash: Bowling Ball Review: We drilled ours 55x4x45 and left it box finish. This ball is comparable to the original Vandal but, it is cleaner down lane and makes a very powerful angular motion into the pocket. The DV8 Vandal Smash is great for heavy to medium oil conditions. This is a great benchmark bowling ball, so if you want to play in or out on the lane this ball provides you with all angles to the pocket…

Description: The DV8 Vandal Smash bowling ball uses the Vandal Asymmetric Core made famous in the original DV8 Vandal. The high differential creates maximum flare for a strong roll that reads all parts of the lane. The Composite Solid coverstock, finished at 500/4000 Grit Siaair, gets through the heads cleanly, owns the midlane and finishes with an extremely strong but controllable backend reaction.

Bowling Ball Review of the Brunswick Mastermind Intellect

Brunswick Mastermind Intellect gave us a medium slide through the heads with a longer and smoother transition to hook in the mid-lane along with a strong and smooth ball motion on the back part of the lane… This ball had good continuation that was controllable. The Brunswick Mastermind Intellect will need oil to perform as designed and is best used on medium to heavy oil patterns..

The Mastermind Ultra Low RG Asymmetric Core is designed for an angular motion with a low RG/High Differential/High MB Differential. This design transfers the most energy to the pins for higher pin action and scores.

Combined with the Honor Roll A+ Solid coverstock that offers unparalleled traction in the midlane and backend from Brunswick, and you have an absolutely brilliant ball that eats oil. Finished to a 500 Siaair Micro Pad/Royal Compound factory finish and you have an incredibly aggressive motion that allows you to open up the lane in ways never thought possible.

The Mastermind Intellect is built from the core-out to be your go-to ball for outsmarting the oil and becoming Valedictorian of your game.

Here’s what Brunswick has to say about the Mastermind Intellect:

The new Mastermind Intellect with its Royal Compound finish, provides easy length through heads, strong mid lane traction with an aggressive move on the backend on medium to heavily oiled lane conditions

Review of the DV8 Thug Bowling Ball

The DV8 Thug gave us a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane. In addition, to a longer and smoother back-end motion… This ball had more of an L shape ball motion and also had some fade back type entry angle to the pocket. The DV8 Thug did have good pin carry and was very controllable and it was like using a smoother ball that got down the lane and had a set up reaction to it. It seem to work good on medium to heavier oil volumes… We used 55 x 5 x 35 dual angle drilling layout, and the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 39ft house pattern in testing this ball…

The Thug features the new Class 13F Hybrid Reactive coverstock and the new Medium RG Thug Asymmetric core. The Thug gives bowlers easy length and lots of punch on the backend. This skid/flip reaction will increase pin carry and allow you to play inside angles with ease.The Thug has one of the best looking color combinations ever seen in a bowling ball. The Black/Orange/Silver Pearl – Hybrid really stands out when rolling down the lane and allows bowlers to easily see the rotation on the ball. This makes adjustments easier and will allow for higher scores.

Here’s what DV8 has to say about the ball:

Featuring the new Class 13F Hybrid Reactive coverstock wrapped around the Thug core, the Thug skids easily through the front and mid-lane flipping on the backend for the most breakpoint potential of any DV8 ever on medium to oily lane conditions.

Features; RG 2.505-2.557 Finish Polished Lane Condition Heavy Coverstock Hybrid Reactive Ball Quality First Quality Factory Finish 500 Siaair/Royal Compound Breakpoint Shape Skid/Flip Coverstock Name Class 13F Hybrid Reactive Core Name Thug Medium RG Asymmetric Differential 0.052 Flare Potential High Mass Bias Diff 0.015 Core Type Asymmetric Release Date 10/29/2014

Review of the Columbia Throw Down

Columbia Throw Down gave us a longer slide through the heads with a medium transition to hook in the mid-lane with strong motion on the back-end… This was a great ball for medium oil patterns or when you need a ball to get through the heads or a weaker ball with a stronger response on the back-end…

Description: Are you ready to Throw Down with Columbia 300? You can bring it with the Bring-It Solid coverstock that has a polished finish. This combination provides length and recovery on medium oiled lanes. This ball uses the Smack Down core to provide medium RG that will get your ball further down the lane and high differential that creates awesome continuation. The new Columbia Throw Down provides great length and continuation without losing any control or hitting power. This ball pairs well on medium to dry lane conditions.
