It's a neat ball, honestly I don't get how it seems as strong as it does with a core that seems like it should be so weak. I'm glad I didn't wait so long to jump on this bandwagon like I did with the IQ Tours.

Last night I had three absolute atomic 8-pins all in a row with the 0G. These were bracketed with strikes so what could have been a 5 bagger ended up X 9/ 9/ 9/ X. Got my point anyways... well, got all of them. High game with it so far at 279. The bad news is, last night was the last night of league. Looking into summer league options.

Finally got some video with the 0G, have a few shots with my Defiant Soul and a bunch with the IQ Tour Edition to compare it with. I'd say the Soul is 2-1 stronger than the 0G and the 0G is another 2-1 stronger than the Tour. Love all of these pieces.

Nice video, Rick. You can really see the difference between the later, more angular hook shape of the Zero Gravity versus the earlier, more arcing hook shape of the IQ Tour Edition. I think both of these are great balls that should be in every bowler's bag.

Just curious, have you measured your axis tilt recently? It seems higher than I remember from previous videos. Not saying it's a bad thing. In fact, my PBAX teammate and I have noticed that a majority of the higher average bowlers in our PBAX league seem to get more spin than roll on the ball.

Thanks Joe.

Christina Hardee was one who recommended the ball to me, and she told me that it seemed to have radar for the pocket. I have to admit that what I notice about this ball isn't so much the shots that I made right, but the shots I made wrong that are strikes anyways. It just gives me a whole lot of forgiveness, miss left and it skates, miss right and it motors. I guess another phrase for this is "matched up" but it does this better at this particular house than the other gear in my arsenal.

Tilt... yeah I've always had it, with plenty to spare. When taking this video I was experimenting with tucking and double-tucking my pinkie, which had good results on the lanes even though I imagine it boosts my already excessive tilt. Might be what you were detecting, sharp eye.
