Peak Performance Ebonite Ball Review

Ebonite Game Breaker 3 Pearl

Ebonite GB3 Pearl— You thought the GB2 Phenom Pearl was good? It was very good. Wait until you throw the GB2 Pearl.  This is the most predictable pearl ball we have made to date and it does it without giving up any down lane motion. The GB3 Pearl is the perfect complement to the GB3 when it's time to move in and open your angles up on a variety of patterns.
Tournament players are going to love this one.

GB 12.7 Pearl - By switching to the pearl version of our GB12.7 cover, the GB3 Pearl will provide more length through the front part of the lane while maintaining the strong mid lane and backend continuation that the Game Breaker series is known for. When the sanded GB3 starts to hook too early, switching to the GB3 Pearl will allow you to stay in your comfort zone.  This allows the player to play the same part of the lane longer.

COMMENTS

What are the characteristics of a great benchmark ball?  Good shape, good versatility, good control at the breakpoint.  Well, the GB3 core is just that.  The Pearl GB3 is a great compliment to the solid GB3.  I found it about 2-3 boards less hook than the GB3 solid.  It still provides the same ball motion but cleaner through the front which creates the less hook.  You could almost develop a two ball arsenal with the GB3 solid and the Pearl GB3.  When the solid begins to motion too early, transition to the Pearl GB3 and you’ll achieve similar ball motion that you started with.  Again, another great Gamebreaker that should be a part of your arsenal.
