MATCH UP BLACK PEARL


With the all-new Match Up Black Pearl, we have adjusted the surface to better handle more oil in most environments. At 2000-grit Abralon, this is the first Match Up with a sanded surface. Reactor Pearl gives clean length, but still blends out the pattern with its matte finish.

Exceeding Expectations

The Stinger™ 2.0 Core offers more flare potential and hook than the original version featured in the Match. This added power allows you to get more entry angle and better pin carry, the key to higher scores.



The Reactor coverstock is the benchmark in design

In use for over a decade, the Reactor coverstock is still going strong. When something has been this successful there is no reason to get rid of it. Reactor material is moderately aggressive, but still offers a fair amount of control without over-reacting on the backend.

Great ball for novice bowlers
Average with a house ball was 120. Average after 9 games is 180, came close to breaking 200 after 6 games and dialing in the ball. Easy to throw and makes bowling fun for me. Nice smell if you are into that. Not used to getting so many strikes and spares. I highly recommend it if you are average and want to increase the fun factor.

Match Up Black Pearl
The Match Up Black Pearl features the same specs found in the original match up pearl, but with a few key differences. The ball comes out of the box with a 2000 grit finish, and is almost solid black. When compared to the rest of the line, this ball is much earlier and rounder overall because of the lower grit finish. For anyone that is a fan of the Rotogrip IDOL, the motion I see out of the Match Up Black Pearl is almost a carbon copy from an arrow farther right. I see myself using the Match Up Black Pearl first out of the bag in league, or changing the surface to 2000 + Polish and using it at the end of a long Tournament block. Be sure to order your own for the June 15th release! #StormNation
