The video is processing through Youtube so the link is coming soon!

This ball should be in your Pro Shop as of today, I suggest grabbing one because its a really good piece at a lower price point!

For reference I compare the Lights Out to the IQ Tour Pearl as well as the Fireroad.

I'm really curious on this one. Looks like a little tamer version of the Heat Hybrid.

And I played with my voice audio levels again this time, do they sound better to you guys? Is it loud enough?

sound was better!

I think you should go farther left! LOL

Was the "twig" shot typical or could you make an adjustment to make it work better?

I could have stayed more up the back of the ball but I was running out of time that night (it was past Midnight at that point) so I had only a couple shots left and I wanted to make sure I got a bunch of different lines played (as you can see lol). If I had to play there for a league night I definitely could have tamed the down lane reaction to some degree by tricking the ball roll with either more forward roll or a lower rev rate.

Would this ball fit in between the Vivid and Frantic or be more aggressive than the Vivid?

This ball falls in the same line as the Frantic but is a little bit weaker overall so it should be something you would ball down to when the Frantic is over hooking or begins to hook to early and starts leaving corner pins.

The best part about this ball for me is how well it takes to surface changes as well as release changes. You can see in the video I play everywhere from outside of first arrow all the way across the lane until I play over the gutter cap hitting seventh arrow. Not too many bowling balls I have thrown that are able to handle that wide of an adjustment and still hit that hard.

With the drilling I have it laid out to have a strong aggressive breakpoint motion so that is part of the reason but it was still pretty impressive to me as I played with it on the lanes.
