"Optimus™ Solid Lbs. RG Diff. Weight Block 16 2.47 0.048 15 2.48 0.048 14 2.53 0.046 13 2.59 0.045 12 2.65 0.035 Coverstock: R2X™ Solid Reactive Weight Block: Tri-Sphere™ Core Factory Finish: 2000-grit Pad Ball Color: Red/Navy/Yellow Flare Potential: 5” - 6” (High) Fragrance: Cranberry Craze Layout: 60 x 3 ½ x 40 THS: 41ft with KEGEL FLEX with Fire and Ice oil on older HPL panels. I really like that when the ball changes direction, its stronger then a typical solid and sanded ball, I can see the orange pin quite well and when the block stands up and changes directions, it’s amazing. I can play up the track with less hand and just watch the ball enter the pocket at an unusual stronger angle, that I would normally see when I am “hooking” the lane. A much better cover for me than the original Optimus with this core. Thanks to Shorty at Bowlers Supply and the staff @ Colony Park Lanes. My new THS bags consist of this ball, Hysteria, iQ Tour, Unhinged, Sinister, and Outcry. I hope you like what you read and check my video out for this ball on my facebook page: Roto Grip Rick."
