i was wondering what would be a good ball for a heavier oil pattern. i'm a stroker, bowl from 13-15mph, and my rev rate is right between low and medium. thanks for your time guys

Since you have two posts and they are both on this thread, welcome to the site.

As for your question, there are a lot of balls out there that could work. Storm Invasion or VG, Roto-Grip Mutant Cell or the original Cell are some of the big sellers over the last year or two. Every company has something that would work.

I've seen good things from the Jigsaw Corner...The original one I don't like tho. I'm a hammer fan boy so I had to throw my input out ;]

i suggest the reign.. Very good backend , and good on heavier oil, and seems like it would work better for you with a slower ball and rev than something like an invasion or other monster hooking ball for floods.. But the reign does hook pretty heavy

you aren't kidding about the good backend. even when the guys on the video came hard on the head pin it still drove through like a bomb. this week im going to have the guys at the Pro Shop watch me bowl. but i really like how the reign works. i watched a couple videos after the one you showed me. so that guy is right up towards the top for me

good deal man smile After throwing my buddies reign ( drilled pin up and pretty aggressive, ) that thing snaps like crazy compared to my Diamondback, I really like it, even tho his grip and span didnt fit me , I got the idea.. Im stuck on the reign or the Brunswick rattler to compliment the DB

Check out the Storm/Rotogrip websites lots of good info is available. I beleive they are the best of the ball manufactures sites, that's why I'm a big fan. Bowl up a Storm!
