Additional product information:
The Hydra is one of the cleanest bowling balls ever produced by MOTIV®. The combination of the incredibly clean and angular Hexion™ cover system combined with the high RG / low differential Halogen core results in easy length with impressive backend motion.
Typically, a 5500 Grit LSP finish is used for light oil balls, but a 5000 Grit LSP finish was utilized on the Hydra because the cover glides through the front of the lane so easily. This finish enables the ball to read the lane better and improves predictability at the backend.
House bowlers competing in high friction environments and rev dominant players will gravitate to the Hydra as it will be the perfect angular ball in their bag. Tournament bowlers looking for a dry lane performance bowling ball need the Hydra in their bag. Unlike entry level pearls, this beast can strike from the deep and provides more angles of attack.
