Hitman - Incredible Ball Motion and Incredible Hitting Power!

My name is Bryan L. Williams and I am a PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staffer

The DV8 Hitman is simply AWESOME! Similar to the DV8 Creed, the Hitman is one of the most versatile balls in the DV8 Line. This asymmetrical core ball can be thrown from multiple angles, but is better on oily-medium lane conditions. For your average league bowler, you will find that the Hitman will give you more backend than the Creed and works very well on any house shot. For the tournament and competitive bowlers, this ball work very well when you need more angle and hitting power off the spot. 

The Hitman’s ball motion can be classified as very smooth and provides you that angular movement when needed down the lane. The layout for this ball is pin up and my CG at my midline of my span and its motion its ball motion is simply incredible. I highly recommend this ball as a great reader ball for any lane condition during league or competitive play.

The DV8 Hitman….If you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling! #brunswickbowling, #dv8bowling, #radicalbowling technologies.

Here is the new high performance ball for DV8, the Hitman.  This ball uses a brand new core, the Hitman low RG asymmetric.  To wrap up this new core, they used a brand new cover, the N-Forcer.  This box finish is 500 grit with a crown factory compound on it. 

For this ball, I used one of my favorite layout 45x 4” x 55 with the pin in the ring finger.  This layout gives me more roll in the midlane and a more controllable backend. 

On the lane, I play the Hitman at the same place as the Creed.  The difference is in the reaction.  Because the cover is solid with a compound, the ball rolls sooner and is smoother in the backend.  I really like that king of reaction when I get an heavy roll in the midlane and still get a good finish.  Compared to the Vandal Strike, I play the Hitman 2 boards left with my feet and one board left with my eyes.  The reason is the heavy roll in the midlane.  When the lane break down and the Hitman begins to over react, I can switch to the Strike playing the same area and still get to the pocket. 

Like all the other DV8 balls, the surface can be sanded to a 1000 or  even a 500 grit for people with more speed. 

To conclude, if you wanna have a realy nice appealing ball and wanna have a great midlane roll and backend, the Hitman is your ball of choice.  And don’t forget, IT’S JUST BUSINESS.
