Gauntlet v.s. Dv8 Pit Bull
on: February 11, 2017, 04:03:39 AM
I'm looking for a strong solid asym for a heavy house shot, I'm looking at the gauntlet and the dv8 pit bull. Which ball do you think is stronger overall?

So what I am reading is that the Scandal and Pitbull are the same

No, they're not the same.
 
I have both. The Pitbull is a stronger ball, period. In Bowler's Journal (BJI) testing, The Pitbull was also slightly stronger than the Gauntlet, which is the asymmetric version of the Scandal.
 
I've owned lots of oilers, and the Pitbull is the most impressive that I've throw. DV8 has hit a home run with this ball.

Yeah, Lane Side Reviews had it and the Cash pretty close in terms of overall strength. They said the Pitbull was a bit longer and more angular though. It's a shame that those two came out at the same time since the Radical ball is getting a ton more hype. Don't get me wrong it's a really good ball and deserves a lot of the praise, but DV8 had some bad timing here.

Yea, timing is everything. One of my league teammates is trying to pick between the Cash and the Pitbull. His dilemma is that he knows he'd be happy with either.

@steven. Since I am going to #15 it is safe to get the pitbull to replace my Scandal?

Do you like your Scandal?? If so, why not just get a new one??
