    As far as pin up or pin down goes, Johnny Petraglia, Jr. will do what he feels will be best for me and the conditions I will be using them for.
    Most definitely! My dad and I just learned the dual angle and its pretty amazing.

    He also just did a dual thumb layout (believe that's what it's called) took a Track HX16 that didn't have much backend and with that second hole it cranks on the back end now. He shot mid 700s two days in a row with it this week at two different houses

    Congrats on the 700's!

    Never heard of a dual thumb layout. I'm guessing that it's a balance hole you have.

    It's actually a P4 hole in the dual angle layout. I am not sure I just know it makes the ball have an explosive back end and explodes the pins

    The Ruckus Schizo is a good hooking ball, and at the time it came out it was a high end ball.

    I brought mine from OOB to 4000 with polish to make it go longer (drilled pin up as well). I'd still like to use it, but it's too much for my shoulder (#15).

    The Ruckus Schinzo is a pretty decent ball but I'm not sure it would be my first choice as a bench mark for most bowlers. Asymmetrical balls tend to be a little more unforgiving than symmetrical balls and while that skid flip motion works well on some conditions on others it can be a nightmare. For a bench mark ball you should really be looking at a few qualities.

    1. consistent reaction- you want something that reads the mid lane and will provide some room for error
    2. some surface but not so much that it takes a ton of oil to get it through the heads
    3. Something aggressive enough I can start with it on fresh oil but not so much that it forces me left to early

    Generally I'm looking for a medium oil ball with a symmetrical core, with a surface between 2k-4k (higher speed lower end of the scale lower speed towards the higher end), Rg's between 2.48-2.52 (again higher speed lower end of the scale lower speed higher), and a differential of at least .4 to allow the ball to flare.

    There are a ton of balls that fit this description and even more if your willing to make minor surface changes.

    I have been very happy with this ball! It has very good back end. I think I am going to purchase the Vandal next for a more all around ball

    The Vandal is the first true benchmark ball that DV8 came out with. By the same token, even though it is a benchmark ball, you can use it on jut about any condition that's out there.

    It's my first ball out of the bag and tends to stay out the entire time..lol Not sure how well that's going to work when I get the Ultimate Nirvana..lol

    Ain't that the truth! lol

    I also see this as a powerful & dangerous arsenal where I won't have to do much for a long time either. All of them will have different dual angle drillings to compensate for darn near any condition the lanes can come up with.
