What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
This was my first bowling ball in the Shift line so I wasn’t totally sure what to expect. I knew that Tony and Brian really liked their previous ones.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I first tried to use the ball at its out of box finish. With my lower ball speed it was hard to get the ball down the lane because of its huge hooking potential.

I then polished it up with some Factory Finish High Gloss polish. What a huge difference. We were able to shoot our ball reaction video on a fresh house shot and you need to watch it to see. Tony and Brian were playing ridiculous angles with this ball.
