For the past few months i have been thinking about getting a new ball and after doing some research i have narrowed it down to a few bowling balls but still not sure what one to get. I have gotten it down between the Venom, gravity shift, Virtual Gravity and the Hy-Road. Please if you have throw any on them give me your input on what you think of it

Welcome to the site.

What conditions are you playing on? What other equipment do you have? These things will help determine which ball you should purchase.

i would definitely say from what you showed the hy-road would be a good choice it's just so versatile.

Are you looking for something stronger, weaker, or about as strong as your Special Agent but with a different hook shape? The Special Agent is relatively smooth. The Hy-Road and Gravity Shift are are about the same strength or a little weaker but with more backend, the Venom is as strong but with more backend, and the Virtual Gravity is quite a bit stronger.

Like my GS (OOB) well enough. Not enough that I'm going to bed with it, but we're pretty close. It's quick to burn out if I'm lax about the polish--if you're not going to care for it, it'll create some disasters for you on med oil.

I'm thinking GP's got it right with the T-Road.

GP hit the nail on the head in my opinion. T-Road solid would be a great choice.

I've got a venom and I just couldn't get it to work well for me. It is supposed to have the most back-end of the widows, but for me anyways, it had the least back-end and lowest overall hook of all the widows.
