The latest release from Lane #1 features a bold hot pink color which is sure to be noticed on the lanes. The ball reaction should be noticed as well. The core design used to create the extremely low RG rating is a dense oversized version of the original patented diamond core. This fast revving core design, combined with Lane #1’s Bleeder 9.7 cover, creates a ball motion that at first appears to be tame and controlled. Once it starts to pick up the midlane, that tame and controlled look goes out the window. From the midlane to the breakpoint, very few balls on the market read the lane as well as the Pink Panther.

All three testers found this new Lane #1 release to match up best with our medium test pattern, which is similar to the average house shot. The strong read from the midlane to the breakpoint gave each tester the miss-room inside and out at the breakpoint that all bowlers
