Ball is great

I have drilled two of these. One pin up for fresh oil and one pin down for when the lanes break down and I need a smoother reaction. Either pin up or down this ball is amazing. Ball is super strong pin up and really smooth pin down. On shorter sport patterns the pin under is great with the smoother transition, but retains energy at the pins. Definitely recommend this ball.

hooking monster

Here is the new ball in the Pitbull serie, the Pitbull Growl. This Pitbull uses the same core as the original Pitbull with a new coverstock offering more back end.
I drilled it the same way I drilled my original Pitbull 60x4 3/4x40. I chose to go to a longer pin because we don't bowl on really long patern really often. By drilling it this way, I can now use it on more typical house shots.
On the lanes, this is my most aggressive ball. The Growl plays about in the same spot as the original. The difference is in the motion of the ball. The Growl is much cleaner in the front and goes about three feet longer than my original Pitbull before making a sharper turn to the pocket. Compared to my Magnitude 035 or the Blue Flame, I play the Growl about three boards left with my feet and 2 with my eyes.
This ball can also be used on shorter patern or less oil volume patern by applying a polish on it. The ball with go longer and make a sharper turn. On the other hand, this ball is ideal for people with high speed. You can put a pad on it and still get a great reaction.
To conclude, if you want to have an eye appealing and really strong ball, the Growl is your choice.

The Growl

Pin under bridge
65 x 4 ½ x 65 extra hole 3 ½ inches from PAP down VAL
axis - 5 x 1/2 inch up
This is my go to big ball! It is the ball you will need on heavy oil to get started rolling early and still have movement down lane. The Growl is very comparable to the original Pitbull but with more movement and angle off the spot. This ball is amazing and is a must have in the bag!

Pitbull Growl

When laying out this ball, my goal was to have it startup sooner and not quit in backend of the lane. Typically Asym balls will startup sooner but being that I am a lefty when I would migrate to the middle of the lane the Asym ball would run out of gas before hitting the pocket. So I drilled the Pitbull Growl with the pin down and the numbers are 60x4x70. The Pitbull Growl gave me just was I was looking for and more, not only did it retain its energy down lane it hits like a truck. I highly recommend this ball for anyone who is looking to hook the ball more!!! It will be available 8/15/17
