Join Lane Side Reviews as they take the 4th #Vandal from DV8 Bowling, the #VandalStrike, to the lanes. It may be the 4th, but you'll be striking all the way to the 10th with this one.

Vandal Strike - More Length and More Angle!

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

The Vandal Strike is a great addition to the Vandal Line of bowling balls from DV8.  The Vandal Strike provides bowlers with more length and stronger backend motion to the pocket.  In comparison to the Vandal Destroy, the Vandal Strike gives you about 1-1.5’ more length down the lane with about 3-5 more boards of hook, making this ball ideal when you need to get the ball down the lanes.  This ball is a great compliment to the Hitman and will complement any novice to advanced bowler on different lane conditions. I would recommend this ball for medium lane conditions.

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

Here is the new addition to the Vandal serie, the Vandal Strike.  This ball features the same core as the other Vandals, but this time the core is wrapped up with the composite flip pearl coverstock.  The box finish is at 500 grit with crown factory compound.  The result offers the longest and the sharpest Vandal in the serie. 

I drilled this ball 75x4.5”x45 with the pin above the bridge.  The reason is to get more length and more backend because almost all my balls are drilled with 4” pin. 

On the lane, the ball gives me what I was looking for.  It clears the heads pretty easely and offers a sharp backend.  Compared to the Hitman, I play the Strike 2 boards right with my feet and 1 board right with my eyes.  The difference is the length of the ball.  It doesn’t wanna roll in the midlane and goes throught it.  When the Hitman begins to over react, I just witch to the Strike playing the same area and the ball hits the pocket.  I don’t tend to use it on the fresh because it the ball is over under due to the drilling and the finish. 

For people with more speed, the ball can be sanded to the 1000 or even a 500 grit and it won’t lose his power. 

To conclure, if you you need to have ball that clears the heads easely and offers a big pop in the backend, the Vandal Strike is your ball.
