Wrecker drilled for Senior LH Stroker. 3 inch pin below ring finger, w/ CG out 1 inch W/ X-hole. Sp.14 mph...I had the Wrecker drilled March 4th before league that night.With 10 mins. warm up, shot 258-258-290-806 out of the box. This house is a little dryer than some, so I had to stand 12 boards right of center & keep hand behind ball, going 12 to 5 with the ball getting down lane with smooth arc to pocket & 10 in the pit..only 2- 7 pins. 3 nights later...diff. house & league w/wider oil pattern, I moved back left 6 boards & 10 to 5 for 300-257-243-800...1st back to back 8's for this 75 yr. old LH Stroker..Its hard to believe a ball in this price range can hit so hard & take out the corners...but, than again its a RG...Larry Hoffman, RG Advisory Staff.

I bought a Wrecker and had it drilled up. I threw a couple games of practice before league that night and didnt like the way it was reacting. I was actually going to bring it back to tame it down some on the backend. However i began to throw it in practice and liked the way it was reacting surprisingly. I threw it all night and threw a 231 230 and finished up with a 300. I couldn't believe that it actually happened.

Ball specs – 15 lbs 1 oz, 3.17 top weight, 3.25 -inch pin.
The Wrecker, which is a polished hybrid, was drilled using the dual angle method. The layout is a 4 ½ inch pin, 55-degree drill angle and a 70-degree VAL angle. An x-hole was needed and was placed at the P2.5 location. Using Storm’s layout terminology the layout would be 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 with a 4 1/8 inch pin buffer. The cover was initially left OOB which is 1500 polished.
Let’s start by saying the Wrecker is a great looking ball with a dark blue and white pearl color scheme. The Wrecker was thrown on a fresh 41 foot, 24 micro liter house shot. The Wrecker was super clean through the fronts and when it saw the friction on the backend it hooked quick and a lot. I feel the backend reaction is stronger than the Shatter. The Wrecker was just too strong down lane for this house pattern and I had to put it away. After league I hit it with a 4000 abralon pad by hand and tried it again. This did smooth the reaction some but it was still very clean up front and strong down lane.
If you’re looking for a skid/snap reaction or need some help on the back end of the lane on medium conditions, the new HP2 Wrecker will fit the bill.

The Wrecker is by far my favorite hybrid medium to dry lane ball right now. The pin is below my ring finger and cg a little right of my midline which would be on the negative side. I get a roll that I have needed on drier lane condition for a while now. I get more of a “hook stop” look so the ball does not drive too hard through the pocket but enough to get all 10 pin down. I can see why it is called the Wrecker because the ball hits like a TANK! I have never had a medium to dry lane ball ever hit like this before! People during league were wondering what ball that was because of the great color scheme of blue and white pearl plus the way the ball was hitting.
Right now the only condition I use the Wrecker on is a fresh night of league and I am to use the Wrecker potentially all 3 games and just move my feet and target. I have compared the Wrecker with its big brother Shatter and the Wrecker I can stand 5-6 boards right and give it more room compared to the shatter where I can stand a little straighter with it being a pearl and has a more down and in reaction if the Wrecker is hooking too much.
Overall this ball is awesome and for anyone who is starting to get back into bowling or needs a league ball this ball is great!
