COMMENTS
Carry - Flush - clears deck. Light or heavy - lots of pin movement.
Likes - Smooth. No overreaction.
Dislikes - Not so great with deeper lines, no recovery.
Other - Drilled this one pin over bridge and ended with 5/8 oz side. Gets about 3" of flare and rolls fairly heavy for a pearl. My preferred line is standing 24, targeting 12. On that line I got a lite mix but a strong backend reaction. Moved right 2 and 2 and this ball crushed every time. Going deeper it had little to no recovery. Overall, clears the heads well, heavy mid lane read and a strong arc move to the pocket. Great ball for experienced players.

Re: Visionary Raven

Update. Broke this one out early in the second game on a juicy, (reverse block?), limited movement freshly oiled league shot. As stated in the official review, this ball drives hard and does not overreact. Stood 23, target 11-13, drift out just a bit, ball walked in consistently and hit hard. Unfortunately, I got tapped a lot. 4's, 9's or 10's. Still, a really good ball I can't wait to get more familiar with.
