We thought this ball was retaining energy for a hard snap off the end of the pattern, but instead we saw the Volt be pretty smooth and tame downlane. We were able to use this ball with success on our dry test pattern, but we had our best results on our medium pattern.
Tweener and Stroker were able to play straighter up the lane on the medium pattern, and this allowed them to have good reactions on the fresh. Tweener started his ball on 16, crossing 12 at the arrows and using seven as his breakpoint. Stroker was on board 14 at the release point, with a target over the second arrow and a breakpoint on the eight board. The fact that they both were able to play tighter angles without swinging their shots too far to the right allowed the Volt’s smooth downlane reaction to keep them around the pocket. Cranker ...
