The Statement Hybrid uses the same asymmetrical Statement core design as the previous two Statement releases, the Statement Solid and the Statement Pearl. This third Statement ball uses the Aggression Hybrid CFI coverstock, which is the same cover used on the Rip’D. Even though it has the same polished box finish as the Statement Pearl, we had the Statement Hybrid start hooking a few feet sooner on the lane. It offered moderate length, but with a strong motion at the breakpoint and back end.

All three of our testers had their best reactions with the Statement Hybrid on our medium oil test pattern. Its aggressive polished cover let us play all over the lane on the fresh. Cranker started the farthest left, laying his ball down on board 35 off his hand, crossing over the middle arrow, and getting it out to seven at the breakpoint. Tweener started his ball on 22, crossed 17 at the arrows, and used the eight board as his breakpoint. The Statement Hybrid’s aggressive cover forced Tweener to keep his ball in the oil longer. When he tried to get his ball farther right downlane, he saw too much hook off the dry and would often leave the 4 pin. Stroker
