A Must Have
This ball will allow you to start with it on the fresh and continue to use it for many games after. I touched mine with a 3000 pad out of the box to give me a little smoother back end. The Real One is a great benchmark ball for any bowler.

I drilled mine over a month ago, I wanted something that would be more angular than anything I've had before. Boy did the ball deliver. It flies through the heads and reads the midlane well. Proceed to shoot my highest game with it in the first week of league I took it too. So good I bought another as a back up.

Good Benchmark Ball!
This one is a goodie. Threw it on the fresh and it rolled very nicely, gave me the hook that I needed, never overreacted and hit the pins tremendously! It's very predictable and versatile. I was able to continue to throw this ball after several games. Definitely a good benchmark ball!

Big games with "THE ONE"
In 30+ years of bowling this ball is the best yet. I can control it , strike with it and pick up spares. No dought this ball has improved my average.

Perfect fit between Unknown and Matrix
Great color scheme! The Real One takes the cleanliness of Unknown and smoothness of Matrix and uses these qualities and exemplifies and separates itself with its down lane motion! So angular and angry! Allowed me to open up my extreme angles and it seemed there was no area where this ball would not recover from!!

The Real One took some time to grow on me during demo days I would watch others roll with it and I thought it is missing something, the read through the heads was a little too much the shape off the friction was much too much. Then I watched a few people play deeper with it and that is when I could see the reaction from the ball to over. I went with a different layout to get the ball to start a little sooner then what I was seeing from other people. I was surprised to see how much it started in the mid-lane and still stayed smooth then once it hit friction I had a nice smooth arc to the head pin that is something I love to see from a bowling ball. I knocked the polish off to see how smooth it could be with still being early. Adding surface to the Real One is the best thing I could have done, I am able to play deeper inside and allow the ball to start up sooner and NOT burn up the finish through the pins is strong as well. When you get this ball don't be afraid to change the surface if the box surface is not doing enough or doing too much for you, hopefully you will see a different reaction that you like.
