Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):


Likes:the Absolute is very strong, smooth and predictable. for me the cover is way to strong as soon as it hits the lane it wants to hook. I have pin above bridge with cg about 1 inch right of center grip with a P3 hole. I tried 4k surface, still to strong so I put 1k surface with 1500 This would be a great choice for lower rev rate looking to get the ball to hook on heavy oil. 900 Global Staff ,Tim Janz

Length: 41'

Volume: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


This ball uses the Adaptor/C Symmetrical core and the new S80R Hybrid coverstock.

The Absolute Truth is an easy ball to read. It is not angular, but it still has a strong backend motion, not a skid flip kind of motion, but stronger than I thought it would be… And at the same time, it has a strong midlane read, but it is not as early and smooth either. The Absolute Truth finds a good balance between providing a predictable motion and a strong move down the lane.

I started laying the ball around second arrow and having 4-5 as my breakpoint. The Absolute Truth revs up quickly thanks to the big Adaptor/C Symmetrical core but it never quits or rolls out. It provided enough length and a strong backend motion.

I had to be consistent with my speed to keep the Absolute Truth on the left side of the lane. When I slowed down, the ball went high most of the time, while when I kept my speed or even when I hit the ball a little bit harder, the ball always picked up right on time and never went past my breakpoint. It offered me a lot of margin of error while missing in or missing out, as long as I kept my speed, the ball always hit the pocket, the ball made me feel like I had about 5 boards to miss and still hit flush.

I moved in and started playing around third arrow and surprisingly the ball offered enough recovery down the lane. Due to my low/medium rev rate, there are only a handful of balls that allows me to play that part of the lane and this is one of those balls. I wasn’t expecting that from this ball since the cover is so strong than I thought that the ball will have no energy left to recover down the lane, fortunately I was wrong. The Absolute Truth allowed me to swing the ball in a part of the lane that it is definitely not my A game and still provided me with a consistent reaction.

I compared the Absolute Truth with the strongest ball in the 900 Global lineup, the Inception DCT. The DCT is definitely stronger than the Absolute Truth. The Inception DCT reads the lane earlier, and it has a smoother motion down the lane. Overall, It has more hook potential than the Absolute Truth.

The Absolute Truth is a versatile ball that will fit into a lot of bowling styles. On fresh this ball can be used to play straighter angles and when you need more shape down the lane. This ball will also be a good option for the transition. Even with its strong coverstock, the Absolute Truth can be used to play different part of the lane. I feel like this ball complements perfectly the rest of the 900 Global lineup. It is a good step down from balls like the Inception DCT and it offers more hook potential and a different shape from balls like the Truth Pearl or solids like Covert OPS or the X2. The Absolute Truth offers a good balance of control and a strong backend motion on most medium and heavy oil conditions.

Coverstock: 80Râ„¢ Hybrid
Finish: ICE "E" (3,000 Grit)
Color: Blue/Orange/Black
Core: Adaptor/Câ„¢ Symmetric
Prime 800 Series
2.48 Radius of gyration
.055 Differential
Positive Axis Point  5 7/16 by 1/4 up
Layout  6 x 5 x 4
I love the name of this ball..... because it fits my personally.  The ABSOLUTE TRUTH is a strong symmetric, much stronger than the previously released RESPECT.  This combination of a stronger shell and the Adaptor/C symmetric core makes it a great fit for heavier oil conditions.  If you like to wheel it and curve the whole lane this is your ball.  The hybrid cover creates skid and strong back end reaction and I have to say that  this will be the cream of the crop for myself in the 900 GLOBAL line.  All of your fellow bowlers will see how great  your reaction is  with this ball.   Treat yourself right, get an ABSOLUTE TRUTH and add some much needed performance to YOUR game.....  Greg Thomas 900 Global staff

The Absolute Truth
    The perfect compliment to the Truth Pearl, very smooth with a control roll
but will handle higher volumes of oil. The hybrid cover enables the Absolute Truth
to deplete energy at a slower rate which increases the hitting power at the pins, This ball
will arch very hard off of the breakpoint. Great ball for all styles of bowlers. Slow player’s will love it because it won’t burn out. Your favorite control drill with work fine
on this one. You need to get one.

Drilling pattern: 75 x 4 3/16 x 75
Pattern: THS
Pin position: Below bridge

The new Absolute Truth from 900 Global has already proven to be a very versatile, yet very controllable, addition to my arsenal. The hybrid coverstock does a great job of getting through the front part of the lane without burning up, yet has the teeth to consistently make the corner with a predictable motion off the dry. Was able to use this on both a fresh THS, as well as a burnt up THS, as the ball was able to fight through the carry down and retain enough energy to carry very well during games 2 and 3 of that set. This is a ball that will never leave my bag and will likely be a go to on heavier oil patterns in the future.

Clean, Strong, Continuous predictable motion

The Absolute Truth brings the Hybrid S80R coverstock that is used on the Inception Redux to the Truth line.  This coverstock is strong, as many of you know from throwing the Redux.  This Hybrid coverstock allows you to have the best of both worlds when it comes to solid and pearl coverstocks.  The pearl allows the ball to clear the heads with ease and then you gain the ability to have the strong motion in the midlane and the backend you get with solids.  This ball is meant for medium to heavy lane conditions, but don’t think you can’t modify the cover to accommodate other patterns but still get the same heavy roll this ball provides.  You can see this ball working its magic due to the color scheme, which makes it super easy to read.  Get one and see for yourself! This is the absolute truth, period!

Absolute Truth
Ball Specs
Cover Stock: S80R Hybrid
Finish: ICE E 3000 Grit
Core: Adaptor/C Symmetric
Layout: 75 x 4 ¼ x 70
RG: 2.48
Differential: 0.055

The Prime 800 Series Absolute Truth, is exactly that the TRUTH. The S80R Hybrid cover combined with the Adaptor/C Symmetric core gives you a piece that can handle medium to heavy lane conditions. The ball revs up quickly in the mid lane, which will give you a consistent finish to pocket with increase hitting power on heavier oil lane patterns. My ball is drilled pin down below the ring finger with the CG kicked out to the right. My fellow low to mid rev players will enjoy this ball. This is a great ball to have in your bag, get one today!
