I drilled up two of the new DV8 Ruckus, the first one with the same layout as my favorite Endless Nightmare, 65 by 4 5/8 by 40. My Endless was really strong in the midlane, and gave me the most continuation on heavy oil that I've ever had. This Ruckus displayed the same shape on the lane: strong midlane with a continuous, smooth backend. The biggest difference would be the amount of oil it can handle. I can throw the Endless on the heaviest of lane conditions. If the pattern is a little flatter than a normal house shot but still has some friction, I can throw this Ruckus. When it wiggles too much, I know to throw my Endless, and when it burns up a bit in the front and doesn't drive through the pins, I know to throw my second Ruckus. My Endless was about 6 or 7 boards stronger than this particular Ruckus.
My intentions for my second Ruckus were to give it a cleaner move through the front of the lane, with more pop off the spot, which led me to 65 by 5 1/8 by 35. When I need to play in the middle of the lane or further inside and get it around the corner, this is my go-to ball. Long, strong, and great through the pins. This particular ball is a little too long on fresh or heavy oil conditions, but it was not designed for that. This ball is just as clean as my Brutal Nightmare, but is about 3-4 boards stronger off the breakpoint.
When you need a ball for length and a crazy move on the backend, pick up a Ruckus and make some noise!
