HALO Ball Review

Weight: 14 lbs.
Pin Length: 3-1/2-4"
Drilling: 40 x 4 x 25
Pattern Length: 40 ft.
Pattern Volume: Medium
Pattern Type: THS
Right Handed
The HALO has the MicroTrax-S18, solid cover stock, first introduced on the popular Roto Grip Idol ball, wrapped around the asymmetrical Centrum Core. The box finish is 2000 grit, but can be polished or sanded to give several different looks. The color is a mix of coal, fuchsia, and sky blue.
I have used the HALO on a 39 ft., and 40 ft. house/tournament pattern. I found it to be a little early starting up on the 39 ft. pattern, but still continued strong through the pins when i migrated in to 3rd arrow and picked up more head oil. Box finish gave me a good look starting out on the 40 ft, medium volume tournament pattern for a couple games. I was then able to ball down to the IDOL during transition.
I changed the surface to 4000 grit and polished it. This gave me a great look on the 39 ft. medium volume house pattern. It got down the lane better for me, and really faced up strong to the pocket, with very little deflection. It saved so much energy with the polish, it gave me a backend angle that, as a lower rev player, i cannot usually create myself, translating to better carry.
This is an awesome piece of equipment that hits very hard, and can give you earlier or later roll by experimenting with surface changes. It is a good replacement for my Sure Lock, with a little earlier startup. It's earned a regular spot in my arsenal these days.

What is drill protection

1/14/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If your new ball cracks when it's drilled by a pro shop, bowling.com will replace your ball free of charge! Manufacturers' warranties typically do not cover for cracking during drilling and drillers are not held responsible for their mistakes or defects in the ball.

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Code X will be a tad bit more aggressive than the Halo. The finish on the Code X is a 3000 grit and the finish on the Halo is a 2000 finish. The higher the number of finish, the more length you will have.
