Re: Jet Propulsion Hybrid

This ball is one of the most fantastic balls to hit the market.with the polished 1500 finish it is one of the best looking balls to touch the lanes. If you are looking to bring your game to the next level I would include the Jet Propulsion Hybrid

COVERSTOCK
VersaMAXX-9 HD
CORE
Asymmetrical

This is one of the most versatile bowling balls with it's ability to cut oil and maintain its drive thru the back end. For both high and low rev players

COMMENTS
I have wanted a hybrid in my bag for some time now and am really glad to have this one. This ball makes a good benchmark ball for players with my game that like to be able to play slightly inside in comparison it is 2/1 left on the same pattern as my burner with a similar layout. I must warn those who use this drill pattern that when playing in larger volumes the speed must be well regulated as I have found myself able to throw the ball through the breakpoint when playing inside 15. However when the speed and release are well regulated this ball only gets stronger on the back as it gets farther down the lane.

COMMENTS
Carry - above average
Likes - Ball rolls smooth and revs up nicely to make a strong and controlled move to the pocket
Dislikes - it was a little too much ball and forced me 5-10 boards outside of where I prefer to play. It performed well though even though I was forced deeper than normal into the lane.
Other - I was mildly surprised with the strength of this ball. I have never had much luck with Hybrids but I really like this ball. I would place it as a high level benchmark ball for lanes that have higher than average oil volumes. I will say that I think this ball shines best with slightly weaker drills because of the strong coverstock and insanely strong core. I believe that the core can easily over power the ball if too aggressive of a layout is used. If you are an average or above player I would be catious of strong layouts. Players that are speed dominant or rev challenged will love this ball and can go ahead and put a strong drilling to it. I would rate this ball as the best ball Jet has produced to date and slightly out performs the Turbulence in my eyes which I considered to be the best ball Jet has made until the Propulsion. This is an impressive effort and I want to compliment Jet with a true winner! I love this rock! Inbox me anytime for advice on anything Jet.
