Had a Nano drilled last week, and thought it was at the perfect time, as the center I'm bowling in had recently added 4 units of oil to the outsides. Well, that adjustment lasted all of one week, as they had gone back to drier outsides the very next week, so after throwing the Nano a few times in practice, I had to put it away. I did get to throw it last night in a different center, though, as I was subbing on a friend's team. It's drilled 4x4x1, box condition, 2.16 oz top weight before drilling, no weight hole. I managed to throw it for about 2 1/2 games before it was just checking up too early to keep using it. Front 6 first game, 6 pin spare, next 3, split for 263. Front 9 the second game, 6 pin spare, strike for 279. Went strike spare double, spare, strike, then should have put it away, but fought it for another few frames. Tried to finish with my Anarchy in the 9th and 10, but split both frames for a 183. Just had no idea where to stand after mopping up the condition for 28 frames.
Love the ball, though- hits like a freight train, carries off pocket, had no trouble getting it to face up and continue through the pin deck. I'm going to let it accumulate some oil in the shell to see if it adds a little length. I'm hoping to win another one from the Storm website, so I can put one away for when this one starts to give out, or to polish one.
