Mission X *weaker* than the Domination/250K???
I'm hoping this isn't right, but and thought it was just the bowler, but after trying this ball at 3 different bowling alleys, I doubt it's the bowler. So hopefully someone can shed some light on this.
I had the Mission X punched up as something that can handle the carrydown to compliment my Domination/250K. But every time I've thrown the ball, the Mission X is struggling to turn the corner, and faces up weakley, compared to my Domination/250K, Undefeated Fire, and probably even my original Mission (I haven't tried that yet, but I suspect it). So I'm guessing that it is the layout, but I'd like some assistance.
First, pics of the Domination/250K (Pin up, OOB, with PAP 5" over, 1.5" up)
Now, the Mission X (Pin Up, tried also with OOB, same PAP)
And just for kicks, here's my Undefeated Fire (Pin up, OOB, same PAP)
The guys at my pro shop were saying that it is underperforming because it's losing its energy half way down the lane, so they took it up to 500/2000 Abralon, then factory finish... same result, if not slightly worse. As I've tried this on 3 different houses with 3 different shots, and getting no-where near the hitting power I would expect (while the Domination/250K hits like a truck), does anyone here see anything wrong with the layout on the Mission X? This has me really stumped, as I would be expecting a lot better performing ball (roughly 3 - 4 boards left of the Domination/250K at the same finish on the demo video), and not having to bring my target closer to me and slow the ball down to get anywhere near the same reaction.
