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 solid coverstock offers amazing control 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!

Layout: 85 x 3.75 x 70
Pin Placement: Under ring finger

The engineers at 900 Global have again done a wonderful job creating a look that was not available until the After Dark came along. This ball allowed me to play much further right, even on a THS, without having to worry about early hook and loss of power. The After Dark is stronger than urethane, but weaker than the Boost series, giving itself a perfect spot in any bag. This ball will be fantastic on shorter sport patterns, along with lighter THS patterns, for anyone from the recreational bowler to the most experienced tournament player. Another gem from the people at 900 Global.

The Function 400 series After Dark Solid is a nice addition to my league and tournament bags. The After Dark Solid is the smoothest ball I have in my arsenal. This ball’s reaction is very consistent, doesn’t overreact, and won’t give the pocket away. This ball will be great on drier lane conditions. My ball is drilled with the pin down RICO layout. All bowlers will benefit from having this ball in their bag. Ball was tested on a THS 41 feet. After Dark Pearl is available as well. Get one today!

Great for lighter oil, short oil, or when the lanes dry out. This is me and what I like...Out of he box I hit it with a 4000 pad, just to get the shine off of it. For the price, the reaction I received was great! I bowled a tournament with a 38' oil pattern, what a great ball to have in my hand! Goes longer, mine might flare 2" Just what I wanted in my bowling ball line up, and should be in yours! Zero issues with it.
