I would say it's a Vandal Destroy type ball, just a little longer and stronger at the breakpoint. I was throwing it on 3 different patterns last night and I really liked what I saw. I was able to use it on 45' Mexico City and it still read the breakpoint without wiggling. I had some issues getting the right layout on the vandals. But I put a favorite layout on the Creed (40 X 4.25 X 55) and it looks good. I feel the more bottom heavy core shape keeps the ball going.

I watched my coach throw it, and its a pretty awesome ball movement. When the balls makes its turn to the pocket it looks legit amazing. This ball will be a gap I am missing between my pitbull and edge solid. Also Lane Sides Reviews just put this up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCIW2L6cYwA

I agree with Tommymo about it being Longer and Stronger. I drilled my up 60x5x65 with a P2 hole and I threw in on 45ft pattern out the box and had no problem getting it to turn the corner. I saw a good 5 board difference from the Vandal Destroy( I love this ball also) so the Creed filled in a gap

DV8 Creed

I drilled my Creed 40 x 4.25 x 55. I've used it on a 43ft house shot and 45ft WTBA Mexico City. From what I see... the Creed can easily be the first ball out of your bag on a typical house pattern and used for many games. Its stronger change of direction at the break is something many of us like to see. What sets this ball apart from most is that the Creed's new core shape. With more of the mass towards the bottom of the core, it allows the ball to have a stronger motion at the break point with a much more noticeable continuous drive through the pocket. Think Vandal Destroy on steroids.
     The Creed will also work well as a step down from stronger balls, like the Pitbull and Pitbull Growl, when you need to get the ball through the heads and still want a strong asymmetrical ball motion. I really liked what I saw on the 45ft Mexico City. After 2 games with the Pitbull Growl I was able to move my feet deeper and created more angle at the break for maximum carry without worrying the ball was going to wiggle and miss the pocket.
