Picked up my Frantic today. Was only able to thow it about 5 or 6 times just to test the thumb and fingers sizes but after i got the thumb tape in it the way i like it i threw 4 in a row right off. So far very happy with the way it rolls. Def gets thru the head and makes a hard move on the back end and hits like a mack truck. I threw a could a little straighter like i would my Anarchy and it did not like that so i moved left and rolled a fairly good hook and it turn in right were i wanted it to. Will be throwing it Monday night on a league i am subbing on so will right back then to see how it does. I am hoping this will be my new benchmark ball like my 2fast was.

Sorry forgot to put the specs down. It is 15# 2oz, 3 to 3.5 pin 2.92oz top weight. Here are a couple pix of the layout. I told them i wanted it to go long and alot of backend motion so this is the layout they went with which is very close to my Anarchy.

Did you ever have a Hy-Road slate? Can you compare the two?

I have not but my son does. We def bowl diff as he is a 14 year old lefty and i am way older than that and righty. But having both the 2fast and this one i can say this ball likes to hook more than my 2 fast. I def had to open the lane up more than i did the 2fast. Cannot wait for monday night to get some games on it and get a better idea of what it is going to do

My teammate just got one. 5" pin to pap, and he can't control the hook. He got it foe med/dry, and thought it would work as a spare ball also. He dove on the head with it and hooked past the spare shot. I think he is giving up on it very quickly.

It is his 10th ball since Sept.

Ya i can def say this is not a spare ball. It would hook way to much for that. Just with the few throws i was able to use it on it worked fine. One of my local houses has $1 bowling tonight after 6 so I think i will take my son and go give it a try at that before league tonight. Shld be able to get some video as well.

Went out and shot some with the frantic tonight. Tried a bunch of diff lines just to see what the ball liked to do. The lanes I bowled on were a fresh THS but faily short which is why i had my driller drill the ball for length. The ball did well up the 2nd arrow throwing fairly straight and also opening it up as well. kinda nice to be able to throw a few diff lines and have it work. Here is a little video i made. The bat was almost dead so only got a couple shots.

Thanks for the Video slate, Nice to see one other then the manufaturers video to get a good feel of the reaction. Looks like it reacts they way I was hoping it would. This will make a nice addition to Jordans aging arsenal.

Which will be Virtual Energy,Frantic, Heat Black silver and plastic after Christmas.

Ya it def rolled nice. Was not a neck breaking hook just a nice even and controllable break to the pocket. Even when i missed back (like in the video) it still held line long enough to leave a makeable spare. The real test will come tonight and Wed night at leagues to see how it does. Hoping to be able to start with the Anarchy and then switch to the Frantic.
