This is the first ball that I have had in the Game Breaker line and I am definitely regretting not getting involved in it earlier. After drilling this ball and throwing it a few times, I changed the surface to 3000 grit with a coat of polish. I love how clean this ball is through the front part of the lane and makes a strong transition at the breakpoint. What I am most impressed about is that even with the changed surface and polish, this ball is fairly smooth in the transition instead of being overly angular which allows it to provide a very continuous motion through the pins. Ebonite has a definite winner with this one.
