DV8 has come up with a great moving, good looking, and hard hitting ball at a tremendous price point. The first thing you will notice about the Alley Cat are the colors. They will definitely get your attention as the ball sits on the shelf or is pulled out of the box. Don't let the great colors fool you. This ball is MEAN. The Alley Cat works best on light to medium oil, and it packs a punch. I have a 4 inch pin on mine and have he pin drilled about 2.5 inches above my ring finger with the CG about 1.5 inches below the ring finger. The ball gets through the heads extremely clean, and as soon as it catches friction, it makes an immediate left turn(I'm right handed). The ball keeps the pins low, and causes quite the stir as it pushes cleanly through the deck and stays right on line. For this price point, the DV8 Alley Cat has great hook, and awesome power through the pins. Nobody will be disappointed by adding this ball to their arsenal.

Here are the new ball to replace the Outcast serie, the Alley Cat.  This ball offers a new core and a new coverstock.  This ball is designed for light oil conditions.

I drilled mine 75x 3 3/8x 50.  The reason I went to this layout is to have an heavy roll with the ball.  Usually with the weaker coverstocks, I tend to be over / under with the reaction.  I was right on because on the lane, the ball begins to roll early and is really smooth in the transition.  Because of the weaker coverstock, the ball clears the head really good even if the layout is strong.  Compared to the Freakshow Flip, I play the Alley Cat two boards right with my feet and one board right with my eyes.

To conclude, if you wanna have a great performance and a great colors at an affordable price, the Alley Cats is for you.
