The ball is excellent in the front of the lane. Where this ball shines for me is game 3 on a house pattern & on light oil shots. The ball has no trouble getting thru the transition and still have enough energy stored to carry. Lately, I have been working on keeping my angles straight and play to the left. I’ve also been successful by adding surface to liven it up and get more midlane. All around it’s a versatile ball I will keep in both my league and tournament bag. Great price also. Special thanks to David Adcox (Go Lefties) for the video that sold me on the ball.
