Is the ball strong in oil or just strong off the dry?
This is one of the strongest covers I have seen in a while. Handling heavier patterns is definitly not a problem.
What are you stats. tilt, rotation , rev rate??
How is it different than the cell? I had a cell and didn't like it at all.. I'm chalking it up to the drilling and just too long of pin to pap that made the ball want to go forward at any sight of friction... it was 5 1/2 pin to pap, pin below bridge(around 60 to 70 deg to VAL??) and 45 deg MB.. The ball had zero recovery and just didn't do much for me.
Speed - 19mph
Rev Rate - 450
Tilt - 18 degrees
Rot - 50 degrees
Looking at the layout you have on your Cell - Your angle sum is around 110 degrees, are you rev dominate? Also using a pin that far from your PAP on a asymmetrical ball does make the ball roll forward, this works better with players with high tilt. I see similarities in motion with these two balls, more in the actual shape than anything. Both are very predictable but the Theory is definitely stronger, I might even do a comparison of these 2 in the video.
I'm slightly speed dominant.. 325-375rpm, 18-19 mph. 10-15 tilt, 50-60 rotation
I'm planning to go to a testing lane soon to get all of my stats professionally done.
Yes.. just realizing that the long pins make the ball want to roll forward after bowling for 25 years.. Always had long pins because my drillers just used their favorite pin position in relation to the fingers.. Well this always put the pin on my high tracking 5 1/2" over pap around 5 to 5 1/2 inches from the pap... and this always made me come around the side of the ball and hit up for a very high degree of axis rotation just so that ball would get down the lane and hook on the backend..
I changed my release to being more inside and coming up the back more and realize that my stuff just doesn't want to finish and rolls out very quickly...
I haven't drilled any asymmertricals under 3 3/8 pin to pap..
I have lowered my pin to pap some.. My favorite layout is 4 to 4 1/2 pin to pap 30 deg VAL, 60 deg MB.. usually a variation of the double thumb so that I can add a weight hole if I want to tweak the reaction..
I'm finding that these balls tend to transition way to fast for me as well. I realized there was a problem when the stronger my ball was the less it would hook the drier the lane got.. and the weaker balls would hook more..
I know this can be the case cause strong balls will burn up but my case was rediculous..
I guess there is use for a reaction like I am getting with this drill but I don't think it is good to have on every ball I have.
Here is a link to the equipment I have.
Tell me what you think..
I have a slingshot that I am going to drill up with a short pin to pap.
Sorry for the book.
