900 Global Harsh Reality
« on: February 10, 2024, 07:43:52 PM »
900 Globals newest 900 series ball is a TANK. The Harsh Reality features the AI Core tech which brings the Disturbance Core to an RG at 2.48, Diff 0.054 and PSA of 0.019 and the 902 Solid cover. I drilled mine 5 x 5.5 x 2 and my first impressions of throwing this ball is that it is a lot earlier and smoother than the original Reality. This ball needs oil and really wants to tumble down lane. If you are looking for a new asymmetrical solid ball for tournaments or Nationals, this is going to be your ball.

This ball is a lover in my bag! And a lover of oil. Compared to the Eternity PI, it hooks earlier and surprisingly more back end. Compared to the original Reality, definitely a lot more ball. Especially with the new A.I. core technology. I myself with what I normally bowl on, I'm going to like it a lot more once it gets a little more lane shine on it. Throwing this can see it reacts to the mid lane a lot more. So it loses a little when it reacts too early. A little lane shine on this solid ball I think will work a little better for me on House shots. All I can say is wow does she flare!! This ball is the strongest ball 900 Global has and I'm glad to have it!

Solid ASYMS are where I typically have found myself falling in love most when it comes to building my arsenal. Being a fan of the original reality and its predictable shape through heavier conditions, I was excited for the release of the Harsh reality and it has not disappointed. Especially to see the difference between it and the Eternity Pi. It's strong new AI core and cover allow it to have a consistent shape and motion that you can rely on, without it getting too out of control, and when it hits the pocket it DEMOLISHES the pins.  I will say that it reads the mid lane better than almost any ball I've ever used which I imagine comes from it being the strongest ball 900 global has ever made. I recommend for heavy oil, of course, but also for those who are looking for a tank that can HOOK!

900 Global Harsh Reality - 900 Series
Coverstock: Reserve Blend 902 Solid - 2000 Abralon
Core: Disturbance A.I.
RG: 2.48   Differential: .054 (15 lbs)   PSA: .019
Layout: 5.25 x 3.5 x 4.5
PAP: 6" Right, 1 3/8" Up
Axis Tilt: 16°
Rotation: 51°
Rev Rate: 450-500
Speed: 17-18 mph
Location: Vista Lanes - Yorkville, NY
Pattern: 2023 USBC Jr. Gold
Lane Surface: HPL

The Harsh Reality is an optimized Reality with a new cover blend and A.I. enhanced core. The Harsh Reality was designed to be the strongest ball in the 900 Global lineup and generate a relentless and powerful reaction on the heaviest conditions. It features the Reserve Blend 902 coverstock and Disturbance A.I. core. The Harsh gave me a great look sliding on 33, looking 18 at the arrows with my breakpoint around 8-9. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to move left and not sacrifice ball motion and carry. I was also impressed at how well it blended out the wet/dry on our high friction house pattern. When compared to the Eternity Pi, the Harsh was earlier and rounder downlane. The Harsh also feels a little earlier and stronger than the original. It will be one of the first balls out of my bag on heavier tournament patterns and if you are a low-mid rev player that needs a little help in league this could also be a great choice. The Eternity Pi and original Reality have been reliable tournament balls over the past two seasons. The Harsh will replace my original Reality and be an excellent compliment to the Pi. Stop by your local Storm VIP pro shop to check it out! Available on February 16th.

This ball has quickly become a favorite in my arsenal, showing a strong affinity for oil conditions. When compared to the Eternity PI, it exhibits earlier hooking action with surprisingly more backend motion. In contrast to the original Reality, it's undeniably a significant step up, especially with the incorporation of the new A.I. core technology. Personally, I anticipate enjoying it even more once it develops a bit more lane shine. During throws, its response to the mid-lane is noticeably heightened, although it can lose some effectiveness if it reacts too early. Adding a touch of lane shine to this solid ball should enhance its performance on house shots for me. One undeniable feature is its remarkable flare potential. Without a doubt, this is the most potent ball from 900 Global, and I'm thrilled to have it in my collection!

Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the 900 Global Harsh Reality.

At 14 pounds this ball is wrapped in the 901 Reserve Blend SolidCoverstock and has the Disturbance A.I. Asymmetric Core with an RG of 2.49, Diff of .054, and a 0.019 PSA..

The layout for this ball is 5x4.5x2

This one I am very pleased with as I haven’t thrown A ball from this line, but something spoke to me. Using this ball on a high-friction lower volume of oil showed the strength of what this ball is capable of being. I can say for sure and you can see from the video that this ball needs oil. This ball is very chuggy and needs oil to stay on line. If you are a speed dominant player you could stay in this ball but for me with average speed and lower rev rate I haven't been able to get a full game out of this ball at league but, that allows me the knowing that it will be really good on a higher pattern and/or a sport shot. In league I use this ball in the track for about half a game then jump into the Attention Star and usually that ball I can stay in the rest of the night by making smaller moves to the left than I would have to if I stayed in the Harsh Reality.

Dual Angle Layout: 45 x 5 x 40
Storm Vector Layout: 5 x 3 ¾ x 2 ¾

The ball loves oil!! This ball just grabs the lanes and hooks.  This ball will be a staple in my tournament bag for a while to come.  The cover and core allow it to read in the heaviest of conditions for the reaction you need.
