The high RG and differential allows the new Black Pearl Armada to conserve it's energy through the front with excellent midlane control, and great entry angle to and through the pocket. I was able to play multiple different zones from down and in, to deep inside without it over reacting to friction. This ball is an absolute must have.

The Black Pearl Armada is a excellent two piece pearl that has a great mid lane shape which does not lose energy anywhere on the lane. Its great for the heavy to medium lane conditions. A must have in you bag for transitions.

This ball does what everybody asks for. Get through the fronts then return hard on the back. Its no skid flip by no means. It stays under control through the mids then drives through the rack perfectly. It is overall stronger than i had expected but a great piece to start out on fresh patterns.

Love Lane Master 2 piece balls, I now own three of them. Just add Black Pearl Armada works great even on transition so far. It's not snappy in the back end but keeps on driving.

This is the most versatile ball I have for the standard house shot. I reads the mids great and has a ton of hitting power, I am able to play most parts of the lanes with it depending how we break them down. Love thi ball would recommend it for everyone. I also bought the wife one and it is the only ball she wants to roll. She has had soem great games with it also

What a ball. Like all two piece balls in the Black Pearl line, it hits hard. The sanded finish OTB allows you to play with the surface to meet the specific needs for your game. Highly recommend!

After 9+ years with my original Black Pearl. The Armada was it's replacement and it reminds me a lot of the original. Smooth through the heads and mid lane, but with a surprisingly more angular reaction on the friction than one would think. Rolled an 837 with the original and hope to get another with this one.

Threw this ball for the first time and all I can say is wow! Super clean threw fronts and then explodes threw the pocket. Perfect for lower speed bowlers and moderate rev rates such as myself

The tried and true symmetrical Dynasty Core surrounded by the very predictable XRT1121 cover. Great ball for fresh THS and medium length sport conditions. The Armada reads the end of the pattern very well, and with the 2000 box finish, it has plenty of grab to make sure it finishes strong with the hitting power we've come to expect from 2 piece Lane Master's equipment.

Armada is very strong in the backends and it finishes very hard. Great ball to start with when mid/heavy oil is laid out but may be hard to control once the oil dries up.

This ball is so versatile on the lanes. With this ball in my hands I can play straight up 5 with a smooth reaction or I could swing the entire lane. If you don't have this ball in your bag, I highly recommend getting this asap.

Amazing, absolutely amazing. I have had this ball for two weeks now. And first game out of box with it not the hottest for a 206. This past weeks shoot 245. Hits with force, smooth through the fronts and brings the energy. It’s a great fresh oil shot but only been on house shots so we will see how it compares on other shots.

I drilled this ball Pin above the ring and cg below the ring, The ball is so smooth and continuous. on 9/30/2019 I bowled a 298 with this ball, I got a hair soft on my speed and the ball checked up a little sooner then I wanted it to. Not bad for bowling league at Bowler Green Brook. This is a must have ball for your bag.

Absolutely love this ball. Had it first two weeks and shot a 275 with it. I highly recommend this ball.

I love the The Black Pearl Line and being that the Armada is symmetrical its the perfect 1, 2 punch with The Black Pearl Hunter (BPH). For me its smooth and angular through the pocket with less snap than the BPH. Great piece to have!!!!
