    COMMENTS:
    Carry - Like the Absolute Power this ball carries off hits better than most balls. Despite the fact that I don't have a lot of revs, I had the messenger thing going all night. This is LaneMasters first foray into making a ball with a filler. Up until a year ago, it was coverstock to the core. Like most of the LM coverstocks, it doesn't absorb a lot of oil. It's meant to last a long time.

    Likes - There's enough mid-lane read to stop this ball from jumping when it hits dry. It's a hard, defined move. It doesn't lose carry when you move inside.

    Dislikes - It's not really a dislike, but this ball acts more like a solid than a pearl.

    I actually have one of these. Believe it or not i picked it up at a flea market for $5 with hardly a mark on it, and just had to have the thumb plugged and drilled. And had vacu-grip installed.

    I really like it. I'm a novice but i find i have fairly good control over it. Threw my first 5-bagger with it last thursday - about the 5th game i'd ever thrown with it.
