Drilling: 80x5x45
Surface: Box finish (4000+polished)

I purchased this ball to be a "last resort" reactive when everything else was too strong. I got just that. It breezes through the front of the lane, and it will not move until it sees friction. Once it does see friction, it is not afraid to turn left. It responds very well to changes in axis rotation, providing a smooth arc at low axis rotation, to a hard arc (not quite a snap) at higher axis rotation. I think that a smaller VAL angle would give a very skid-snap look to this ball.

Have you ever thrown the Sahara? If so how do you think the MoJave compares to it...I bought a sahara two years ago and absolutely love it.

I haven't ever thrown the Sahara. With the drilling I put on the MOjave, I think it will work best for me on drier shots with a defined hook spot. I am looking forward to trying it out on some of the shorter PBA patterns, like the Cheetah and Viper.

Where is the CG on it? I can't see it. I am thinking of a similar drilling on my Natural when I get it.

The MB is that white spot that was half drilled out by the thumb. CG is a bit below and right of grip center.

No, the CG is just a little punch mark that doesn't show up in the pic. It's about 4" from the pin.

Ah, I mis-read. I thought that the CG was what was drilled out of your thumb was. That is what I get for reading too quick.

l was also thinking about a natural. I'm wondering how this would compare to the Natural. I know the look would be different, since the Natural will start to roll a bit early. How would you compare the Mojave to some of your other equipment, in terms of boards with your feet, target and total hook?

I may be completely wrong but i didn't think that MoRich's had a true CG being that they are assymetrical cores?
