The Ebonite Polaris Solid is a lover of oil! This ball uses the updated GSV-3 Solid cover which is finished with 1500 Siaair to dig into heavy oil conditions. The Polaris features a weight block similar to the one used in the Aero series but Ebonite has added a disc to the bottom to help produce more ball motion. This combination of core and cover creates a strong overall hook in heavy oil.
If you need to dig in a track the Polaris is your ball. Surface doesn’t shine up easily. Usually, solids with this much surface tend shine up pretty quick. This is not that case. Tested on higher volumes and this ball is a beast. It’s an Aero solid on steroids. This ball for sure needs oil. Lots of hook and hitting power. Not uncontrollable. Very strong overall motion.
The Polaris gives you a lot of hitting power and great shelf appeal all at the same time. Great for heavy oil so you can play up the boards and still generate power and movement down lane. Definitely the ball you would want if you will be bowling on something heavy or longer than a house pattern.
This ball is amazing! Goes through the pins so well. I can count on this ball to dig through the oil and make the turn. Ebonite did their thing by adding backend to this heavy oil ball. I wasn't expecting to grab this ball for my arsenal, but I'm glad I did!
Polaris- one of my favorite high end balls I've owned. I call it a high end benchmark ball. If there's a decent amount of oil on the lane this is a great piece to use to let you know what the lane is doing. I like to use this ball keeping the angles in front of me as high end balls tend to lose energy if I swing the ball too much.
The Ebonite Polaris has exceeded all expectations I have for a big asym solid ball. With my rev/tilt, I generally see these types of balls roll out as I transition left and quickly find myself balling down. But, with the Polaris, this was not the case. Even as I moved left on the lane, this ball continued to truck through the 8-pin. I cannot wait to use this ball in tournament play!
ball is strong thru the midlane and continues well. i like that i can be firm with my speed and still hooks
The Polaris by Ebonite is the latest release in Ebonite's Pro Performance line up.
I drilled mine 35x5x25 and found a ball that reads the mids very early, with good continuation down lane. The Polaris looked best for me with tighter angles. When I tried to open up my angles, I gave up some energy down lane.Keeping in mind, I don't have a lot of hand.
You need a ball for heavy oil or longer patterns, the Polaris will be that ball. Making you into a Star!!
For a Stroker (14-15 mph) bowler with medium rev rate, how would you compare this ball to the 900 Global Reality for Fresh/Heavy Oil patterns?
The Polaris Solid will read earlier on the lane than the Reality but they will have pretty similar hook potential over all so the Reality will make up for going a little longer. That does not mean the Reality reads late because it also still reads early, just not as early as the Polaris Solid. You have a pretty average speed and average (medium) rev rate so there is nothing that stand out as a better option for you so you may just go by personal preference.
