I shot an 806 series with the Defiant Edge in a local 600 club tournament, featuring scores of 279, 269, and 258
"This ball gets down lane very well and makes a strong turn to the pocket when it comes off the pattern. This set was rolled on a 40' house pattern. The ball was at box finish, 1500 grit polished. This ball continues right through the pins. Does not quit!

"Switched back to Roto Grip and I am back to shooting big scores. The 855 (277-300-278) series I shot was the second highest ever in my city, one pin shy of the 856 shot by the owner of the local bowling center."
Perfect with Defiant Edge!

Defiant Edge with out of box polished surface, drilled 45 x 5" x 35, no extra hole (pin above middle finger with CG below ring finger and PSA right of thumb. Third game with eight bowlers on the pair. The Defiant Edge is truly usable for all three games, excellent length with a positive move to the pocket late in the midlane with excellent continuation through the pins. Drilled by Joe Reguero at Impact Bowling Pro Shop, Sun City, Arizona.
"The Defiant Edge is one of the best and most useful bowling balls I've rolled in over 40 years of bowling."
Defiant Edge is on FIRE!

My daughter just came here from Panama to see me for the first time. I had to bowl league and she came with me, first night seeing me and seeing me bowl..I bowl a 300 with the Defiant Edge. She has since seen me bowl games of 298, 290, 279(2x) and back to back 277's with that ball, all in 5 weeks. Amazing.
Defiant Edge = 300

It was October 13 1993 when I rolled my first sanctioned 300. Since then two 299's and three 290's. I thought I may never see 12 sanctioned stikes again, until today (11/25/2012) using a DEFIANT EDGE I was finally able to see what 300 feels like again! I am sure after today that it will not take another 19 years to get #3. ROTO GRIP RULES!

House: Paddock Bowl, Pacheco CA.
Lane Condition: Standard 37’ House Shot (buff not included).
Situation: 2nd Game, standing 27 crossing 12 at the arrows.
First 3 strikes flush in the pocket. 4th strike carried late 10 pin (ball burning up). Options to stay with ball or change to my Mutant Cell Pearl. Decided to stay with Defiant Edge and start moving one board left with feet for each frame. 5th and 6th strike flush. 7th strike, ball moved a little early causing a little heavy pocket hit but carrying the late 4 pin. 8th strike, made 2 board left move with my feet but tugged the ball in, hitting more oil volume and causing the ball to hit the pocket with a little fade but carried the late 10 pin. 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th strikes flush, breaking my 6 1/2 drought. Even better, I was wearing my Roto Grip shirt instead of my team shirt by mistake.
