Pitbull Growl & Rumor WWRD 8-15-17

The Pitbull Growl is supposed to be stronger than the original Pitbull. Looks like DV8 is following the same route that Brunswick did with the Nirvana line. Solid > Hybrid > stronger Solid > Pearl. The Rumor looks like a mid-range pearl, with a new coverstock called the Deception Pearl. Interesting that DV8 is introducing two new mid to mid-high range pearl coverstocks so close together.

that Rumor looks nice. It's gonna be tough to decide between a Rumor or Inferno.

So many balls not enough money. I will admit I'm a little confused by DV8's new ball chart. They show the Creed, Rumor, and Vandal Destroy being flipper than the Freak Show Flip

So, if you had to pick between the Pitbull and Pitbull Growl which one do you pick except for the price difference?

I'd go with the Growl. To me it's a similar situation to the Nirvana and Absoute Nirvana. I love my Absolute Nirvana and I've seen a lot more of them than the original Nirvana

I agree with svstar 34, very tempting, but I gotta keep my focus the the inferno at this a point.  ;)

I own the Pitbull. It's one of my favorite oilers in a long time. I'm saying this from the perspective of also owning the Sure Lock.
 
The Growl will undoubtably be more of a heavy oil niche ball. Not saying it won't be good, but definitely will need oil one would only see on the heavier/longer PBA patterns. It all depends what you're looking for.

Been out of two years due to my mother's illness, numbers wise I was looking for a replacement of my Roto Grip Hyper Cell which cracked and for a pin up oiler.
The choices I narrowed it down to are the Pitbull,Pitbull Growl and Jackal Ghost or LE.

In my arsenal now, I don't have a a ball stronger than a 900 Global Dream. I have a Motiv Revolt Havoc coming for the Sym. Solid but a Asym. Solid is needed as well.

Hope that helps with your answers.
