The sucessful 900Global Badger line of bowling balls continues with the Money Badger. This mid performance bowling ball uses the Inverted Grapnel Asymmetric Core. Inverting the core increased the backend reaction of this ball to create a big break at the backend. This core is wrapped with the S71 Pearl Reactive coverstock which has a quick response and is perfect for medium oil conditions.

Core:  Inverted Grapnel Asymmetric
RG: 2.57 (15lb)
Differential: 0.044 (15lb)

The 900 Global “Money Badger” is the newest addition to the Tour Preferred 700 series along with the “Money Badger Tour”.  This sharp looking, emerald green, asymmetrical power house packs a knockout punch, PERIOD! Let’s break it down.

Being an older player with a more “classic” form combined with the new USBC “no weight hole rule” going into effect August of 2020, I am a huge proponent of Asymmetrical weight blocks for bowlers like myself. 900 Global delivers a huge success with this Inverted Grapnel Core!  The original two-piece design found in the Honey Badger provided a dirigible motion with a controllable angular back end.  Now, with the Money Badger they INVERTED the Grapnel core and it delivers brilliantly! The back end of the Money Badger has a stronger angular motion than its predecessor allowing more entry angle. More entry angle combined with the unstoppable rolling power of this Inverted Grapnel Core leaves a hard striking, rolling ball that delivers a crushing blow through the pins!

Combine all that with the proven S71 Coverstock that provides great length and that skid/snap reaction we love to watch and you have a mighty green power house in your arsenal! This is a whole lot of ball that brings whole lot of fun at a very affordable price! 900 Global strikes a 300 with the Money Badger!

Review:
The Money Badger is designed for medium to light lane conditions. If you have been a fan of the original Honey Badger you'll absolutely love the new Money Badger.  This one will be one of the most angular balls within the 900 line with slightly more skid and less total hook then the original HB.

When you desire to open the lane up this one will not disappoint. On a 41' and 42' THS pattern this ball is simply amazing and will turn heads as you send this one down the lane. If you are looking for skid/snap this one is for you.

Be sure to add a Money Badger to your line-up today.  Also, be sure to visit my YouTube channel Michael Slatky for more ball videos.

LANE CONDITION

This ball allows bowlers to clear the front part of the lanes with ease, while also maintaining great backend downlane. It is perfect for when the lanes get cut up and messy throughout the course of a tournament/league. It is an awesome compliment for the Money Badger Tour when it becomes difficult to get the ball down the lane. Be sure to add this great piece to your arsenal!

The New Money Badger.  This is one of two new badgers in the Tour Preferred 700 series. Money Badger is a two piece core and cover ball. The coverstock is the proven S71 pearl coverstock that is on the Honey badger and it has an Inverted Grapnel Asymmetric.

This ball has the same coverstock and 1500 box finish as the original Honey Badger, the two balls are totally different. The Money Badger provided me more length and skid/snap reaction then the original Honey Badger.

When Honey Badger was too much for the lanes I was able to move inside with Money Badger and  play 25 of 12 with no problems getting the ball back to the pocket.
