900 Global Absolute Truth video and written review
« on: October 29, 2017, 03:19:17 PM »

Here we are with another 900 Global release, the Absolute Truth. This ball uses the Adaptor/C Symmetrical core and the new S80R Hybrid coverstock.

The Absolute Truth is an easy ball to read. It is not angular, but it still has a strong backend motion, not a skid flip kind of motion, but stronger than I thought it would be… And at the same time, it has a strong midlane read, but it is not as early and smooth either. The Absolute Truth finds a good balance between providing a predictable motion and a strong move down the lane.

I started laying the ball around second arrow and having 4-5 as my breakpoint. The Absolute Truth revs up quickly thanks to the big Adaptor/C Symmetrical core but it never quits or rolls out. It provided enough length and a strong backend motion.

I had to be consistent with my speed to keep the Absolute Truth on the left side of the lane. When I slowed down, the ball went high most of the time, while when I kept my speed or even when I hit the ball a little bit harder, the ball always picked up right on time and never went past my breakpoint. It offered me a lot of margin of error while missing in or missing out, as long as I kept my speed, the ball always hit the pocket, the ball made me feel like I had about 5 boards to miss and still hit flush.

I moved in and started playing around third arrow and surprisingly the ball offered enough recovery down the lane. Due to my low/medium rev rate, there are only a handful of balls that allows me to play that part of the lane and this is one of those balls. I wasn’t expecting that from this ball since the cover is so strong than I thought that the ball will have no energy left to recover down the lane, fortunately I was wrong. The Absolute Truth allowed me to swing the ball in a part of the lane that it is definitely not my A game and still provided me with a consistent reaction.

I compared the Absolute Truth with the strongest ball in the 900 Global lineup, the Inception DCT. The DCT is definitely stronger than the Absolute Truth. The Inception DCT reads the lane earlier, and it has a smoother motion down the lane. Overall, It has more hook potential than the Absolute Truth.

The Absolute Truth is a versatile ball that will fit into a lot of bowling styles. On fresh this ball can be used to play straighter angles and when you need more shape down the lane. This ball will also be a good option for the transition. Even with its strong coverstock, the Absolute Truth can be used to play different part of the lane. I feel like this ball complements perfectly the rest of the 900 Global lineup. It is a good step down from balls like the Inception DCT and it offers more hook potential and a different shape from balls like the Truth Pearl or solids like Covert OPS or the X2. The Absolute Truth offers a good balance of control and a strong backend motion on most medium and heavy oil conditions.

Thank you for watching!

I'm not a fan of the original Truth, and the Pearl looked pretty good, but this ball, in your hands, looks pretty good. I think this ball will work better with a faster transitioning layout than a slower one.
Go Global or Go Home!

Thank you! Yes, I thought about having a layout that complements the ball for what I wanted it to do. Having such a strong coverstock, I wanted a layout that could provide me more length and a faster response to friction down the lane, so far I really like it. I used it in league last week and shot 226-239 until I had to ball down.
