Surface:  Reacta Gloss

The brand new 900 Global Sublime brings the new Immersed AI Core with the new 802 Reserve Hybrid Coverstock.  The AI technology was originally found in the Storm Summit and is the first 900 Global ball to feature the technology.  The technology reduces the RG and raises the Differential for ultimate performance in the symmetrical core space.  Found in the 800 series line, the Sublime offers early roll and higher response to friction then seen in the Zen line.

I was able to test the Sublime on a 44ft Typical House Pattern with medium volume.  What I found was strong midlane hook and a pretty angular backend.  It was actually great how much backend that the Sublime produced.  Compared to the original Zen, it gives very similar midlane hook but more of an angular backend.  The Zen to me had a more continuous shape and the Sublime has a more angular shape.  These two balls can definitely be in the same bag for this reason.  A strong drilling on the Sublime can make it more usable on the fresh so it can go more forward in the backend.  More surface on the coverstock can also have similar effects.  The Sublime after first use would be a great first transition ball to me after I use a more solid coverstock such as the Eternity PI or Xponent.  This ball will definitely be great on a typical house pattern but is strong enough to handle higher oil volumes on sport/pba patterns.  I can easily see this ball as a replacement for the Zen Soul on medium to higher amounts of oil as it is stronger and more responsive in comparison.

The 900 Global Sublime bowling ball has taken the bowling world by Storm, offering a groundbreaking fusion of angular power and cutting-edge A.I. technology.
One of the standout features of the 900 Global Sublime is the new Immersed A.I. core and the 802 Blend Hybrid cover resulting in a truly exceptional bowling experience.
The ball seamlessly integrates a high-performance core with an innovative coverstock, creating a harmonious fusion that delivers outstanding results on the lanes. One part solid from the Reality and 2 parts pearl from the Dark Moss, this cover combo is evident in the ball's ability to generate angularity with unmatched precision.

The Sublime is nothing short of impressive as well as great shelf appeal. I drilled 2, Pin up and down and compared both to my TNT Infused and Summit. Similar motions with the Summit being sooner and the TNT being later.

Sublime is at box condition while the Summit is 3000 polished and the TNT 4000 no polish. Light pocket shots gave me that Summit carry due to the A.I. core and the angular flush hits like my TNT Infused.
The pin down layout just give me an earlier read and more suitable for oiler mid-lanes. The ball's ability to create a pronounced angle of entry into the pocket enhances pin action, increasing the likelihood of striking with authority.

This ball pushes the boundaries of what bowlers can expect, introducing a new standard for angularity and overall pin action. It is a revolutionary leap forward in terms of both design and engineering in the 900 Global lineup

Bowlers looking for a ball that combines cutting-edge technology with a dynamic and aggressive hook will find the Sublime to be a game-changer. in competition, making it a top choice for those seeking a truly sublime bowling experience.
