Entry reactive? Could've fooled me!
I was/am a casual bowler that was asked to be an alternate in a league, so I did that a few times with my ancient NINJA that didn't quite fit my span properly...and the end result was a mediocre 148 league average.
Then my wife got me this ball for Christmas, and my average has rocketed up to 180, and I rolled a 227 (personal all-time high).
Once you get the hang of the hook potential, it is a very controllable ball that has consistent reaction = better scoring. could not be happier with this ball.

this ball if drilled one ounce side and one ounce fingers gives you a constant roll to the pocket and the flip to kick out corner pins. the technology lets you play like the wood lanes, yet still gives you the scores of the new surfaces of today.

I love this ball
This is my first ball I've ever purchased. This ball is as aggressive, or non-aggressive as I want it to be. I couldn't be more pleased with this ball,and it seems to get better and better each time I put it to use. I highly recommend this ball.

I need another...
200 hundred average league bowler. Bought the ball for med to drier lanes. Chamelion pattern..started with strong Storm ball, moved to high-level Hammer ball, then the polished Cyclone. The Cyclone worked great on the 13 board which was the same mark as the two previous...WOW! Game went up by 60 pins. It was predictable, not too aggressive and entered the pins consistently for the pattern. The ball was drilled to give me a nice even arc to the pins. It liked the medium oil, it entered the pins fairly strong, not like the heavy hitters, but consistent hit. I need another one at that price. GET ONE!
By FLOOD from Texas
Purchased this ball after Throwing the Brunswick C-System 4.5 for a couple of years. The 4.5 Hooked way more that I could control so I was looking for a longer ball with a good snap on the back end. My local pro hooked me up with this ball and re-fitted me with the Pin up. I instantly started scoring better.I have had this ball a little over a month and have thrown my first 600 series and 3 within 15 pins. I am very impressed with the performance of this ball and the price cant be beat.

The Ebonite Cyclone is an absolute sleeper in this year's line. I drilled it pin under my fingers, and it really reads the mid lane with smooth continuous motion on the backend. The Cyclone is a steal at the price point with the amount of movement and hitting power. I have used the Cyclone both in PBA regionals and my local PBA / Kegal league.

First game 201 Second game 189 Vibe Midnight....
Lanes were light oil at this point. Pulled out the Cyclone and bowled my first 300 game. Played 16 board to the 5-7 board right handed bowler. Normally when I hit the pocket solid I leave a 10 pin. This Cyclone is amazing. Huge pin action and smooth movement on the back end. Every ball was perfect. I would highly recommend this ball especially for the price. The best ball out there right now I believe. Buy this ball.......

Love this ball!
This ball hardly took any "break in" time. I'm very happy with the hook and break at the pocket. I did increased the weight from 13 lb to 14 lb and now with this ball my 10 pin "leaves" have converted to consistant strikes.

By Cellsaver from Laurel, Md
Good ball to have when...
Good ball to have when the lane conditions began to change. Very strong on light to mid oil patterns. Smooth the the front, reads the mids well and strong on the backend with plenty of engery left. Another plus, the price. Alot of ball for not alot of $$$.
By Bowlinator from Charlotte, NC
Best Bowling Ball Ever!!!
I am a mix of a beginner and casual league bowler. I am used to bowling with a strait ball and I wanted to buy a ball that will hook so that I can learn how to hook the ball. To start off with I bowled this new cyclone ball the way I would a strait ball and it goes straiter then my strait ball which is a ebonite T-Zone ball. The only con about this ball is that it will receive deep gauges going through the ball return which is something that my other two balls never did.
By Anchorman from Myrtle Beach, SC
Very good for light to medium oil conditions
This ball, when properly drilled, has a strong finish on the back end. When conditions cause it to hook too much I can use a more direct line to my target through the lane oil and it will finish strong enough to carry strikes and/or convert spares. Consult with an expert driller, explain how you normally bowl, and tell him what you hope to accomplish with your new ball.
By Gman2 from Long Beach CA
WOW! What a difference...
I was in a slump for several weeks and my first 2 games with this new ball were 211 & 221. I am very pleased with the performance and the price is with in reason. I am once again a happy bowler. Bring on the side bets....

Great ball for the money Not a beginner.
i was a once a year bowler and enjoyed it, a buddie ask if my wife and I would be interested in bowling in a league. I laughed and we decided to try it. after a couple of weeks of trying to find a ball that felt good i decided to buy one. after bowling about 12 games with this ball. today had my best outing ever,bowled a 149,184 and 236 net never in my life did I think I was capable of throwing anything but a straight ball best money ever spent and still getting the rythem down never thought a 143 handicap could do this. BEST BUY OUT THERE IN MY BOOK.
