If you can get a Panic or a Reaction Rebound those would be good choices. The Reaction Rebound is going to be pretty flippy and keep it polished. The discontinued Reaction Rip (green color) is a fantastic ball for drier/medium lanes. You might be able to find one on auction.

are you looking for ball suggestions or suggestions on moving/adjusting on dry lane conditions? If you are trying to adjust the first thing I would do is make sure your ball is prepped for the condition. I don't know what the factory finish is for that ball, but I would go with something like 2000 and polish it. If you are having trouble with the ball hooking toooooo early look further down the lane as your target(not break point) Those are a couple of things that can be used to combat dry lanes with out switching balls.

mikey,

I'd go with something hard and shiny, something like a hammer vibe, columbia flipside panic, Ebonite Elements Ice, probably a pearlized ball. I'm a hammer/ebonite guy and like the vibe for burned up lanes. If they are that dry do you also have a plastic ball?

For drier lanes you can stick the speed demon, just as long as you keep it highly polished.
