Desert Ops
on: February 07, 2017, 11:00:56 AM
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
Out maneuver your competition with the 900Global Desert Ops bowling ball. 900Global took their popular S70 Pearl coverstock and combined it with the Break asymmetric core. This pairing creates a bowling ball that offers the perfect combination of friction and backend reaction as well as controllable flare when used on dry to medium-dry lane conditions. 900Global raised the RG while lowering the differential so that when paired with the S70 Pearl coverstock this ball will perform well on those dry lane conditions.

Color: Burnt Orange/Gold
Core: Break LD Asymmetric
Coverstock: S70 Pearl
Finish: 1500 Grit, Polished
RG: 2.57 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Dry-Medium Dry Oil

Desert Ops, 900 Global
Great ball for the burnt condition, also a great ball for slower speed bowlers.
Sometimes the urethane balls are not strong enough for the dry lanes. The Desert
Ops can fill that void. With the famous S70 cover in combination with a high rg. low diff
core, power on the back end on dry lanes is no problem. The cover allows it to burn off
energy at a very slow rate saving most of it for the finish. Slow speed bowlers can use this ball on fresh, medium dry and dry lanes. You never know what lane conditions will be, so be ready with the Desert Ops, the only one of its kind.

If you are in love with the OPS line this another homerun. I just recently bowled a tournament with this on fried out conditions. The Desert Ops got down the lane and still packed a wallop on the pins. I did bump the coverstock down to 1000 from the 1500 stock. The layout I have is a 45x4 3/4x30 Pin up. This ball would be perfect if you are looking for those dried out house shots or fried lanes at the end of the night. Most balls will die going through the pins but not the Desert Ops the carry was phenomenal!

have this one drilled pin under bridge with the MB on VAL with no hole. ball can be used on the fresh or the BURN! fresh it allows you to play straighter without over reacting,and when they dry out just jump in and throw to the dry. If you have slow ball speed this ball would be perfect choice for you. or even if you like to get in and hook it!! Tim Janz 900 Global staff

Flare Potential: 3"

  The latest 900 Global ball in the Preferred Series is the Desert Ops.  It uses the same Break core that was in the Breakdown but with a 1500 Polished Pearl shell instead of a 4000 grit finish.  I drilled mine with the Pin up above my ring finger which was a 5  X 3 X 3 1/2.  My opinion is that the ball has some serious length in the front part of the lane but it has a very controllable reaction when it sees the mids.  Very pleased to see this rock in the 900 Global lineup!  I throw this ball mainly on medium type Sport patterns when the front part of the lane has created some sort of friction after a number of games have been bowled.  900 Global continues to produce the best bowling balls on the market today!   Remember if you want some added Performance in your game make sure you get a Desert Ops at your pro shop today!

As with others, generally speaking asymmetrical cores and myself have not gotten along very well in the past. The hook/stop motion was almost always the eventual result and that was frustrating. I was willing to give this one a chance as I had a specific drilling/purpose in mind for this ball. I drilled it 95x40 with a 2" pin and ended up with the MB left of my thumb hole. Wanted to have a lot of length and a lot of control on the back part of the lane and that is exactly what I got. The ball has effortless length with a hard, but controllable, move off the dry. I was able to play much further right than with most other bowling balls (all the THS in my area are very low volume) and shot 300/847 with the first set out of the box. Definitely another winner from 900 Global!

900 Desert OPS
#15.3
.5" pin
2.3 oz top

Rt. hand
14-15 mph
PAP 4 9/16 1/4 over

Drilling: 55x4.75x60 1500 grit polished
Volume 38-41ft
THS, Kegel Challenge Series

Who says pin in balls can't work?!  Drilled up a 900 Global Desert OPS with a .5" pin 55x4.75x60 pin down.  This is a perfect ball for the dirt, burnt dry lane conditions.  TONS of free skid along with a very continuous back end reaction.  763 1st night clean.  The Desert OPS let me play 10 right of my normal spot on our house shot.  Ball shows no sign of early hook but does display a hard arc motion off the spot.  Superior ball for any dry lane, early hook condition.  Ball is perfect for heavy handed or slower speed players.  Great compliment to the OPS line!
