I recently had the opportunity to bowl team trials down in my native country of Colombia and throw the amazing No Rules Pearl. I used it in 4 out of the 5 WTBA patterns we bowled on. This ball for me is like my benchmark ball. It gets through the front part of the lane easily, and get great recovery down the lane out of it. It was ideal to throw after the oil was pushed down a little bit. So after the first two games I could go to it if my other equipment stop hitting. I was surprised I was able to used it in a short pattern and still get great recovery out of it. I thought it was going to quit down the lane. But it did not. I like that I can also switch the surface and get more benefits out of this ball. It is a must have in everyone's arsenal.
