900Global developed the After Dark ball line to offer entry level bowling balls as well as balls that can be used by tournament players when facing dry lanes. The S30 pearl coverstock offers amazing control and length as well as a very low hook potential. The Nightfall Symmetric core has a high RG and a low differential to assist the beginner bowler with hook control and helps the seasoned bowler maintain their reaction shapes on lanes that are drier.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


Clean, Smooth, predictable motion

The After Dark series introduces the all-new Function 400 Series.  This ball provides a true entry-level ball but is an absolute must have for the tournament player. When throwing it I was able to play further right in the dry on my THS.  It never over reacted but also did not lose power at the pins.  I was able to move left as the line dried out and still get the ball to hit.  This ball allows you to keep everything in front of you and is necessary for your shorter sport patterns.  This ball fits when Urethane is too little and other higher end equipment gets too much or to rolly and makes it hard to carry.  They come in solid and or pearl.  Of course, the pearl is a little later with a bit of a sharper break point.  This ball fits perfect here. Go Global and see for yourself!

After Dark Pearl
   This by far is the most versatile ball ever. Beginners will love the control of not
reacting to much while learning to hook it. Advance bowlers will like it for the
ability to use it on dry conditions. I drilled mine 40 x 4 x 40 and can use it on fresh
and dry conditions. I was very surprised at the pin carry, pocket hits, light hits and high
hits as well. The pearl version is about a foot longer than the solid. Two words for this ball, Super Control. This is a must have ball.

The After Dark Pearl is quickly grabbing attention within the bowling industry this year.  The After Dark Pearl performs as advertised. It's truly an entry level ball that will perform well on drying THS conditions and also is an excellent choice in sport condition situations where you are looking for a controllable reaction out of a pearl.  I can't say enough about the After Dark series.  If you are a fan of the Boost series you are going to really enjoy the After Dark series as well.  Also, the price point for the After Dark series is simply unbeatable for 2018/2019.

Drilling pattern: 85 x 3 7/8 x 50
Pin placement: In ring finger

The After Dark series, both the solid and the pearl, have been BIG hits in the little time they have been in my bag. These balls are incredibly controllable and are perfect for drier THS or shorter sport patterns. The After Dark pearl gets through the front part of the lane with ease and goes about 1-2 feet further downlane before making its break to the pocket. These balls are great choices for anyone from an entry level bowler to a top tournament bowler as they provide fantastic versatility and predictable motions. If the heads dry up and you still want length and carry, look no further than the After Dark Pearl.
