  • Columbia 300 - Chad Murphy wrote:
          Mike Aulby used a Rock drilled straight over the label and Ricky Ward also used a Rock, CG down towards his thumb with a small hole down away for his axis. He and Jason had a great battle going to whole week. Ricky showed what I call "closing speed" down the stretch and edge out jason for the Win.

          Jason Couch used a Vortex2 with a five inch pin below his fingers, no extra hole.

  • Storm - Steve Kloempken wrote:
          Eric Forkel was using two new Storm balls...the Trauma and you only saw it once, but I'm sure you noticed it easily, the Basketball! For his first ball shots, Eric used the new Trauma, a pearlized aggressive reactive ball with an all new weight block design. We went with a 3 3/8 pin for maximum reaction and placed the mass bias inbetween his ball track and strong line. We used no weight hole for this layout. Better luck to Eric on his next show, as he hit the pocket often with few rewards!
