Ready to make an Impact on the lanes?!?! The Ebonite Impact high performance bowling ball is ready to help you make that impact. This ball uses the CB-2 asymmetric core and GSV-1 Hybrid coverstock to ease down the lane and then react big on the backend when facing medium to heavy oiled lanes.
With the new USBC rules going into effect in 2020 regarding the elimination of balance holes, I had to do my homework to find out what ball will work to put the Rico pattern into. So now that I know that balls with asymmetrical cores will work for the "updated" Rico pattern, now it's just a matter of finding the right ball with the right specs in terms of core and coverstock.
The Ebonite Impact has been absolutely perfect for this pattern for me, with the ball's smooth and predictable transition through the mids and a strong angular motion at the breakpoint. This ball has been great for tackling an overwall pattern or a short oil pattern. This ball is known to be smoother and not a skid/flip type reaction, and in my opinion with the Rico pattern it maximizes this ball's potential.
If you want something with great backend for medium- heavy oil lane conditions this is definitely the ball for you. The Impact is super clean through the fronts with amazing backend motion. Another plus it looks great going down the lane. A great ball to have in your bag.
Drilled mine 70X5X40. Found the Impact to be extremely clean through the heads and very aggressive when it sees friction. When you are looking to open up the lanes during transition, the Impact is definitely a good choice. The ball has a very good price point for such performance. The green/silver combination is a plus too. If you're looking for a ball that hooks, the impact is a good choice.
great performance at this price point. Strong ball for medium/heavy oil. Gets down the lane clean and big flip in the backend. Has the same core from the Pivot line.
