  • Ebonite International - Del Ballard wrote:
          Chris Hayden was using a TPS III drilled with a 4 inch pin, hole near the axis. Jason couch used an Apex all week but used the Vortex II on the show because they hooked more. It was drilled with a 4 1/2 inch pin with small hole on axis.

  • Storm - Steve Kloempken wrote:
          Dennis Horan was actually using the SAME ball he won with in Akron last year! It is a Thunder Flash Pro with a pin 4" from the PAP and mass bias in the ball track position, no extra hole. We freshened up the surface from time to time with a little u-clean u-score, a urethane ball cleaner.
