900 Global Sublime
« on: December 14, 2023, 10:21:52 PM »
The AI core in the Summit was the talk of the town over the summer and new it is introduced in all new 900 Global Sublime. Wrapped around the new 802 hybrid cover and the Immersed Symmetric AI core has numbers of 2.47 and 0.056. I drilled mine 5 x 2 and after throwing it for awhile I was quite impressed that it reminds me of a cleaner Phaze 2 type shape. It doesn’t really overreact in the dry and still has enough for misses in the oil to carry the corners. Strokers will love the way this ball goes through the pins with the AI core technology and crankers will love the versatility of this ball. I can see myself using it on the fresh on higher friction surfaces and in transition once the lanes start to breakdown.

900 Global
Coverstock: 802 Hybrid
Finish: Reacta Gloss
Core: Immersed Symetric A.I.
RG: 2.49
Differential: 0.050
Layout: 5 x 4 3/8 x 4 - 2LS
Layout Extras:  3 1/8 Finger Depth, "X" - 4 1/2 D and 1 Inch Left
Tester:  PAP 6 1/2 R, 1 1/4 D

The 900 Global Sublime is the first ball to feature the A.I. (Amplified Inertia) Core in the line. Also, this ball is two-part pearl and one-part solid in the coverstock. This blend is S70 from the Wolverine Dark Moss and the S84 Response found on the Reality.

Right away this ball reminds me of one of my all time favorite angular pieces the 900 Global Respect. I believe the Sublime may even surpass the Respect. OOB on THS I rolled a 279 game simply messing around. I'll be honest I'm not one to say A.I. technology is the next jump in tech, but rolling it myself I see the off hits do seem to carry more. Also, working recent MatchMaker events it appears SPI is onto something very big. The off hits definitely mix the pins and A.I. technology might make the difference in making that cash line in tournaments you roll.

Initial thoughts on the Sublime is this ball can be a first symetric piece out of your bag. Be sure to try it as is with the Reacta Gloss finish before scuffing it up. I have not decided yet if I'm going to continue to test as is or give it a once over with a 3K or 2K Abralon pad. However, I'm very impressed with this ball from 900 Global and I am excited to see where this one is going.

Be sure to grab your 900 Global Sublime today. I have a feeling this one may be a staple in the arsenal.

Well, I'm very excited about this new 900 Global Sublime! It has been handcrafted with all new Reserve Blend 802 Hybrid cover and The Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core technology. This new symmetric bowling ball will be great in your bowling bag. Out of the box I threw it and liked it a lot, But, After thinking I had it hit with 500/3000 on the ball spinner. It toned it down a little to fit in with my other bowling balls. You have the Eternity PI and the Zen Gold bowling balls, The way I throw, its nice to have something that fits in line with my style. Tuesday went 718, Thursday went 716. It rolls very nice and very predictable. Its nice to make the move and have a ball in your hands that you can work with. Its a ball in the bag, and I can't wait to bowl again!

Sublime - Ball Specs
Cover Stock: 802 Hybrid
Finish: Reacta Gloss
Core: Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core
Color: Neon Purple/Amber/Black
Layout: 50 x 5 x 40
RG: 2.47
Differential: 0.053
Intermediate Diff: N/A

The all new Sublime is the first 900 Global core to feature A.I. Core technology combined with the 802 hybrid cover created a low RG of 2.47 and Differential of 0.053. I tested this ball on a typical house pattern 43 feet. I had a great look in the track area, but as I open my angles up to right and moving my feet left the ball reaction just kept getting better and better without losing striking power. I was carrying solid and light pocket hits. The reacta gloss makes its clean through the front with a great midlane reaction to the pocket. Not skid flippy more of a continuous motion. This is a great ball for all levels of bowlers. Order one from your local pro shop today! My ball review videos are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite.

Dual Angle Layout: 55 x 5 ½ x 55
Storm Vector Layout: 5 ½ x 4 ¼ x 3 7/8
The Sublime is super clean through the front of the lanes and just pops on the back end.   I drilled this ball a bit weaker than my Journey and created the perfect 1-2 punch.  When the Journey starts to go a little too early, I can switch to the Sublime and not have to move a board.

900 Global Sublime Review
« Reply #5 on: December 27, 2023, 07:50:04 PM »
The Sublime is the newest release is the 900 Global line. It features the 802 Hybrid cover and the AI core technology that was on the Summit. The Sublime was clean through the heads but with plenty of pop down lane. It is still quick off the friction and rounder/continuous motion. I did compare it to the Tnt Infused and have the Infused a tiny bit earlier and more forward off the friction. The Sublime just seemed a touch cleaner, still quick off the friction, but a rounder shape. I have the Infused and Sublime in the same strength zone. Compared to the Zen Gold Label, the Sublime reads the midlane earlier and is not as sharp off the spot. The ZGL is very clean but when it sees the friction if goes left, the hockey stick motion. For me, the shelf appeal might not be the best, but I believe once people start to throw it, they will like it. Another powerful addition to the 900 Global family!!

Layout: 4.5 x 4 x 2.5 VLS

The Sublime is the first 900 Global ball to feature the groundbreaking A.I. (Amplified Inertia) Core technology that first appeared in the Storm Summit.  The overstock is a fusion of the S84 on the Reality and S70 from the Wolverine, creating the 802 Reserve Blend.  The result is a cleaner and more angular ball that is comfortable playing straighter angles or moving left and opening the lane up.  On our typical house shot, I found the Sublime to be very forgiving on balls that were pushed a little right or pulled a little left.  From what I saw on the Summit and now on the Sublime, I truly believe that the A.I. Core technology really does help the ball carry off-hits better.

My Specs -
Speed - 16 mph,
Rev Rate - 315. 
PAP 5 1/8 x 7/8 Up.

900 Global has saved the best for last in 2023 by releasing the all-new Sublime! And leave it to 900 Global to take the groundbreaking A.I. Core technology and combine it with a brilliant Hybrid fusion of their best-performing solid and pearl coverstocks to create another 900 Global success with the Sublime. So, let’s take a closer look at what makes the all-new Sublime a fantastic new release.

The Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core brings a new dimension into ball motion. And to give a simple explanation of A.I. Core technology. It would be to say a wider surface of the ball rolls on the lane, and the more “roll” a core can generate, the greater the destruction it can do through the pins. So, with the Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core found in the Sublime, the barbell shape brings a smooth, hard-rolling motion that straighter players like me enjoy with an added bonus. The Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core creates an intense amount of “English” from its angular motion as it hits the pocket. And like a cue ball to an 8-ball rack, it creates a swirling motion that makes the pins dance around the pin-deck. So, straighter players like me will see more pin action, messengers, and a more significant amount of pin carry. And that is precisely what I saw with the Sublime! So, if you are a straighter player, the Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core will be a strong new advantage to add to your game.

I am a huge proponent of Hybrid Coverstocks for many THS bowlers. And the Reserve Blend 802 Hybrid Coverstock delivers the results THS bowlers can depend on. I started by sanding my Sublime with a 2000-grit Abralon pad, and my Sublime was right spot on all night. The 802 Hybrid creates a smooth and predictable roll I like to see, whether on fresh oil or worn conditions. And I liked how the 802 Hybrid stayed consistent throughout the night. And that consistency makes the 802 Hybrid an excellent choice for any straighter, low-rev player like me on multiple types of conditions. My only caveat to the Reserve Blend 802 Hybrid Coverstock is adjusting the surface to fit your game. The 802 Hybrid will thrive with multiple surface adjustments from many different types of bowlers, so don’t be afraid to experiment with what works best for you! Because The Reserve Blend 802 Hybrid was made to work with you as the bowler.

In conclusion, 900 Global has again created another winner with the Sublime. The Sublime is a well-crafted, all-around symmetric masterpiece that will fit well in just about any THS bowler’s arsenal. And if you are a straighter, low-rev player like me, you can count on the Sublime to give you the added edge you need to bring your season scores to a higher level! So, stop into your local Storm VIP Pro Shop today and have your Sublime ready to roll tonight! It’s well worth it!

900 Global Sublime
Cover: Reserve Blend 802â„¢ Hybrid Reactive
Core: Immersedâ„¢ A.I. (Symmetrical)
Color: Neon Purple/Amber/Black

Benchmark ball alert! The sublime features the all new A.I. core with a predictable ball motion that falls under the likes of the Hy-Road and Phaze lines. We really hope you don’t sleep on this release. We drilled this ball with our normal layout: tweener, 350-375 revs, 16.5mph, layout of choice is 4x4x2 (pin is above bridge). We have been patiently waiting for a symmetrical hybrid to come out of the lineup to ball down from our Summit (also featuring A.I. core). We are loving this new core technology and can attest to those lighter or off hits carrying better. Whether its your first, second, third, or sixth ball in the bag, the predictability and consistency of this piece is what everyone hopes for. The Sublime is very versatile. It could be that first out of the bag or a ball down from a higher sym or asym piece. For us it would be an immediate ball down from the Summit but for many it could be a ball down from an asym piece such as a Magic Gem, Absolute, or Clone.

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

In 14 pounds this ball is wrapped in the Reserve Blend 802 Blend Hybrid Coverstock and has the Immersed Symmetric A.I. Core with an RG of 2.49, Diff of .050.

The layout for this ball is 4x4x2

I was on the fence when this ball was announced as I thought we had enough balls in this spot between the SPI lines. Sublime seems to have the perfect combination of length and backend motion. But after throwing this ball in league you just see this ball is a little special. The ball is versatile and takes surface changes very well. This ball was much stronger and read the lane harder than my TNT Infused. I would say it is close to my Pi in total hook and stronger than most of my polished balls. I could have seen this ball in the ball of the year talk if released earlier in the year and not at the end. Do not sleep on this one and go see your STORM VIP Pro Shop to get yours today
