Question:

What does top\pin mean?

3/5/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Pin is short for pin placement and is the circle of a different color that you see on the surface of the bowling ball. This identifies the center of the weight block and the direction it is tilted. The pin distance is measured from the center of gravity, which is another marking on the ball. Top is short for top weight and is created by the height of the core inside the ball. The closer the core is to the surface the higher the top weight. We recommend talking to your driller to identify what pin and top weight would be best for your drilling layout.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the Storm Alpha Crux

4/14/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There are several key differences between this and the Storm Alpha Crux. This ball has a Hybrid coverstock with a Clean N'Sheen finish to give it much more length down the lane than the Alpha Crux. Because the Alpha Crux can read earlier on the lane it can also handle heavier oil better and will cover more boards overall. That is not to say the Black Widow Dark Legend is not strong because it will have a stronger backend hook than the Alpha Crux because it stores all the hook potential for a strong midlane and backend hook
