Ok so here are my ideas that I had in my head for my arsenal. The way I like to set up my arsenal is in this manner. Heavy oil control ball which will be the Storm Proton Physix. Heavy oil angular ball which will be the Radical Trailblazer. Medium oil control which is the Storm !Q Nano Pearl that I just drilled up, medium oil angular which will be the 900 Global Zen. Light oil control which will be the Roto Grip Hustle PBR, and finally the Purple Hammer urethane, which is for short patterns and when the breakpoint is really tight. My Nuclear Cell is an asymmetric short pin, it’s purpose is to give me a look similar to urethane on the medium to longer patterns, or so I can play farther right longer on a block before I make a ball
change to move way inside and swing it. I also will be adding 1 more ball either to do another short pin layout on or something to fill a gap somewhere, I haven’t decided yet. Here are the layouts I have in mind for the balls that I want to add.
Storm Proton Physix: 60 x 4.5 x 30 this is a strong ball and I want a strong layout on it so I can blend out heavy oiled patterns on the fresh and not have the over/under.
Radical Trailblazer: 90 x 5 x 40 this is also a strong asym that is pretty skip flippy from what I’ve seen. I’m wanting to use this ball when my proton is too early, or when I need to move inside and swing it when my proton is starting to leave ten pins. So I was thinking the long and strong but with a weaker 5 in pin so I can play deeper inside and get through the heads easier.
900 Global Zen: xx x 4.5 x 30 this is same layout has my !Q Tour Nano Pearl. These two balls are very different as far as cover strength and core dynamics, so my benchmark layout on both balls will give me vastly different looks, and I’ll still be able to move deep inside and swing this ball as intended with this layout on the medium volumed patterns.
Roto Grip Hustle PBR: xx x 5.5 x 60 This ball is for the really light volumes or for when the lanes get absolutely burned up, I want to be able to move inside when the lanes are fried but still have a reaction that’s not totally a hockey stick motion, the 5.5 pin distance should be weak enough to still get the ball to float in the heads, and the 60 VAL ANGLE should give me a smoother reaction down lane still.
Purple Hammer: xx x 3.5 x 25 Since this is a urethane ball I’m drilling it very strong and will request my pro shop guy to drill the thumb 4 1/2 inches deep. This ball is going to be for the short patterns on the fresh to give me a nice and predictable motion on the backend and to allow me to play straight early in a block, so hopefully I can move in with a stronger ball after a game or two and use the carry down that I will create with urethane to create hold when I move in and swing it.
These are the ideas that I’m thinking about and my thought process as to what I’m looking for in each ball. Im still open to any suggestions on another ball, I carry 9 to league and tournaments generally, but I do throw plastic at spares. So I’ve got room for one more ball. I still want another short pin layout in a symmetrical
or even another asymmetrical ball that would give me a slightly different look than the Nuclear Cell.
