I recently bought the Bad Intentions, and had my old Reign Of Fire still. I threw the bad intentions with mixed results, and decided to try the ROF, and had forgotten how much I love the strong backend break it has. Just getting back into bowling heavy again, so I apologize for any lack of info. I want a ball that's gonna carry the lane well and have that late "snap", if you will. I'm partial to Storm, but when I went to get the Crux Pearl they were sold out, and I got impatient and picked up the Hammer Bad Intentions; I ignorantly thought it would be a good ball for me. I've since done a decent amount of research, and I have a decent rev rate, I play just left of tbe 2nd arrow to about the 4-5 board, and that backend pop seems ideal. I'd love some suggestions guys!

You'd probably have to look online to find one but, I like the hell raiser terror for lines like that. It gets really far down the lane and makes a violent move. I guess I have a decent rev rate, I'm above average a bit, and I play it from 12 out to 4

By lines like that are you referring to Storm, or just the ball motion in general?

I was looking on Bowling Ball Exchange and what does a ball lose, if anything, from being redrilled on a single drill used ball?

By lines I'm referring to where you stand and throw the ball

Hello, I agree with above really need to know what lines you play. For me I am a down and in med rev higher speed player. The two balls I have in my bag right now that give me a strong move off the back are th IQ Nano (Very hard snap) and the HYRoad solid not as aggressive move as the IQ nano little smoother but still grabs some angle. The Hy Road is actually my go to ball it plays well on the fresh of course but stays pretty consistent even as the oil breaks down. It my opinion it is a very underrated ball and I just grabbed a new one to save for later. I buy from my pro but I do see they have them on bowling ball.com for $109.00.

Well, I play just left of the 2nd arrow (about the 11 board) to the 2-3 board.

Brunswick Tzone is simply amazing. You will get 9.0 pinfall every shot all night! Easy spare too, single pins missing
in the back alot! I am an adult who uses 10 pounds and
gets many 180s with it

The Tzone is their plastic ball. No real weight block. If OneMoreTimeSweetness plays the line he says (11 out to 2-3) the Tzone isn't going to cut it.

Bad Intentions looks like a ball for heavier oil patterns. If this is not what you are bowling on the ball may be loosing energy too quick.You may want to try changing the ball surface to get it further down the lane. increase to 4000 or add polish.

But if you must by another ball the GURU Limited is equal to the Crux Pearl.
