I have my Nomad solid drilled with the pin to the right of the ring finger with a 5 x 4 layout. This ball is great out of the box for medium oil. The 1500 polished finish is perfect for a typical house shot. The Nomad is a stronger shell than its the Grand Illusion.
I find it effective as the lanes start to dry in the track area.
The ball is clean through the heads and responds nicely when touching the dry.
The break to the pocket is nice and controlled.
The Nomad read the mid-lanes and picks up a nice roll, not a snappy reaction and it also has a great drive through the pins.
This is a perfect ball for medium oil.
I was able to take this ball down to 1000 abralon to get an earlier roll. This could help in the heavier oil conditions.
