How can anyone keep up? 900 is releasing 2-4 balls every 2-3 months.

Well, to be fair, it's just 1 new ball and 3 new colors in the lower end lines...

Seems like the After Dark should have been a hybrid.

I hope the Purple After Dark will be staying. I like the colors of that one a little bit more just because it's the ball I see everywhere.

I've had more people ask what that ball is. Definitely turns heads. It's great to tell them it's an After Dark Pearl from 900 Global.

+1. I turned a lot of heads with the Respect and Candy Corn Boost. I'm certain I could entice even more people to purchase one when I get my hands on one.

My wife likes the Emerald Good Boost because she's a cheese head. I've needed a new Boost and the Red Charcoal is more my speed.

She was very sad the White Hot only came in 14-16

900G is killing me. Been on the fence about a new ball purchase in awhile and the HB and AD lines have both been calling my name.

I own literally every 900 ball from the past year, probably second only to Doom, and those two lines are my fav. My league lineup is- Claw pindown, Claw pinup, HB, AD pearl pin down. May even consider a AD pearl pin up now that purple is at risk of being discontinued.

Superb choices!!

Killing you in a good way!!

Honestly, name another company that has as much diversity and covers you as well as the Ops and Badgers. Seriously.

Ive already told my PSO to order a case of each Solid and Purple Pearl to stash away so when they do get disc'd he can have some.

The ADs are some serious value!

I'd like to see 900:
1) Wrap that cover around a super aggressive core
2) Wrap that core around a super aggressive cover

That would be very similar to a Link, which was one of the best low end balls I've ever had.

Yes that’s the one! I could live with these four HB’s: the HB claw as the first out of the bag, the HB gold pearl as a ball down, the HB s30 pearl, and the HB urethane.

Let’s make it happen! Who do we contact??

The more I look at it, the more intriguing the Honey Badger Urethane looks.

Stronger Urethane like the Hot Cell never interested me that much, but I like the potential I see with this release

Release date for the Honey Badger Urethane is right around the corner! I'm about to put in a huge order and want to know what I should compare the HBU to. I'm grabbing a NIB Shadow Ops and am going to go something like 45*4*35 on that, and want to know if you'd like to see a comparison to that or a HBU compared to a Claw drilled 45*4.5*65.

I would like to see a comparison of the Shadow Ops and HBU drilled with the same layout if you will. I love my SO and am looking forward to the HBU to give a different look.

I saw a video of the SO at 45x4x35, it was incredible! Good choice!

Yeah, one of our staffers drilled 2 of the Shadows, and the one drilled like that went through the pins much better. I usually drill urethane tame and end up never using it lol.

Maybe it’s the same video. The one I saw had one pin up that looked average, and then this layout that had him going deeper and deeper to try to see how far the SO would go. I was super impressed.

I would personally say almost always go with a max to near max flare pin to pap on Urethane.

The more I throw the newer urethane, I'll have to agree. I had a Hype urethane that I drilled weak and with a small Val angle, and it rolled horrible, so I drilled another really strong and I couldn't get it past the arrows on anything. So Max flare and fast response for me! Give me a little shape for goodness sake!

Nope. Only wiggle room we get is if it's a Mix or Ice until we get another plastic ball.
