By the definitions in your link, I guess I don't have a 'benchmark ball'. All my balls have the same 'fit' but they all have different 'Perfect Scale' and 'dual angle' values.

I don't use a 'benchmark ball' to read the lanes. Of the 3 I bring in with me, I will throw the one I know is the most aggressive. It may not be the same ball week-to-week.

If I'm bowling on lanes 1-2 which are always hooking, a 900 Global 'Black Ops' may be the first ball I try, but if it hooks too much, I'll go right to a 'Cyclone'. If I'm on 9-10, my first ball may be a 'Lock' drilled 50 x 5 x 50. If I'm on 21-22, I may use a 'Lock' drilled 45 x 4 x 35. I let the lanes tell me what ball I can use, not the other way around.

Over time, I learn which balls to bring in based on the pair I'm bowling on. The one ball I own that feels the best all the time is the oldest ball I carry. It's an old Columbia 'Blue Dot'. The fit of all my equipment is based on the fit of that 'Blue Dot'. I guess I'm more of an experimenter than a technician.
