Volume - medium
Type (Wall, Xmas Tree, Sport) - Xmas tree. House with guardian heads
Length - 8/10
Back End - 4/10
Overall Hook - 3/10
Midlane Read - 4/10
Breakpoint Shape - Lots of flare, but not a ton of hook. Smooth turn to the pocket
Carry - The ball may be made out of plastic, but the core produces a lot of flare, and it helps the ball to drive through the pins when it hits.
Likes - Great for dry lanes, it gives another option below urathane
Dislikes - Ball is still made out of plastic, so transition can cause the ball to skid out
Other - Ball is designed for a specific purpose. Dry lanes. This is my go to ball game 6 of men's travel league at the driest houses in Houston. If you bowl a condition with dry lanes, give this ball a try. Plastic that hooks is a great concept in my opinion.
Videos will be posted on my shops Facebook page.

I cant believe how well this carries on the toast....shocking actually
lots of flare, but polyester cover, so it needs friction to see any movement
think they are discounted already, so may be on the way out
