crux prime

Post by cw90stratos » September 18th, 2019, 1:22 am

Short review, it's a beast no doubt.

short practice on open play lane 42' med light oil in heads with heavy carry down. tomorrows league Fresh oil is med heavy 42' to start. Then carry down sets in.

1) 4" pin to cg, pin over middle finger, mass bias 2" right of thumb. 5.5 p2p, 45ish deg val. drill angle not sure. 3000 polished.

2) This ball rolls just like most vids shows. Lumbering in the heads, starts reving early mid/ mid lane and very heavy arc back end.

3) I was shocked how this ball chewed thru that nasty open play carry down.

4) why did I get this. hope to even out ball reaction on these over under/carry down lanes and a little more miss area. tried moving right no miss area 2 8 10, or wash out. move a little more right plowing the nose or brooklyn.

5) on a last side note, I lost some revs changing span for sore knuckles and lowering track. But did not seem to effect this ball on back end.

First league night with this. No 300 or 800 still getting use to new span. solid 661 scratch

I will say this, while got off to a very shaky start lack of practice time, this ball does what I was hoping for. 42' med heavy house shot.

1 this house is well known for a nasty hang area around the 12 board. The prime
took that area clean out of play, no worry hitting that anymore.

2 over under and or carry down, no problem.

3 more normal moves to left with soft hand ball responds very well. Typically the
first move is to the right which becomes tweener hell.

side notes, the prime is a little speed sensitive on this fresh oil. After a couple of

frames it settles down nicely. very predictable heavy roll all night. This is not the

magic ball for every house or oil pattern. You miss your line you will pay the

price. You will want another ball for spares. Most of the reviews and vids seem to

be spot on. Overall a very good purchase for me This is my first ultra high end

ball I've ever bought in 40yrs of this sport.
