Brian Valenta won a regional on cheetah a few years back using a Manhattan Rubber.

No, I don’t think a urethane ball is “better” than a reactive ball for the vast majority of bowlers on the vast majority of conditions. But as Brian proved, literally any ball could be the best look in the house if the lanes cooperate. Good luck with it. I doubt you’ll see conditions where that ball is favorable too often, but it’s a tool in the tool chest.

got rid of the angle today and instead got a storm natural solid. will need a span adjustment, whoever had this had some big hands (5 1/2 inch span)
