For the lanes being dry, I don't have the pattern graph; so I can only speak on my observations. There was a lot of backend, but some hold in the middle. I would describe the oil pattern as medium volume but short with typical house shot ratios. I am guessing around 35 feet and about 7 to 1. It was too dry outside to start the ball outside of 8. I did try one down the five board, but it was hooking at the arrows. You had to swing the ball. My original plan of attack was to swing my IQ Tour Solid about 15 to 5. That shot proved to be a little over under and had a low margin for error. I ended up throwing my two Tropical Breezes most of the day. With the Tropicals I could tighten up the line and play around 12 to 7 with a little miss room both directions. I really liked the motion of the one drilled as PBA Performance Plastic. That Tropical Breeze had excellent length and nice strong finish. The other Tropical Breeze is drilled 80 x 5 x 50 (pin in the middle finger). This ball has a much smoother shape, and provided a nice compliment to the stronger Tropical. This was the first time the lanes allowed me to throw these two balls in a tournament or league situation, and I was pleased with their carry. For shorter or drier conditions when stronger cores and covers become uncontrollable, the Tropical Breeze is the go to ball.
Both Tropical Breezes that I used are pearl covers. I liked the motion of the Camber Core enough that I am interested in trying the Black/Cherry Tropical Breeze. It has a hybrid cover and should be overall just a little stronger.
