LANE CONDITION

Length:N/A

Volume:N/A

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Middle Road, TAT "Snake", and THS
 

COMMENTS

Likes: Clean through the fronts and responsive to friction.  It's a versatile ball that responds well to all types of layouts. 

Dislikes:None

Layout(s): Pin above bridge w/ hole 5 1/4" from center of grip and 2" down VAL
                Pin in ring w/ hole 5 1/4" from center of grip and on VAL

PAP: 5 and 1/4" right and 7/8" up

I was extremely excited to get my hands on a respect, so much so that I drilled two of them.  Both balls are clean through the fronts.  The first Respect is responsive to friction and is great when I need to open up the lane.  The second respect is smoother and gives me a more predictable look during transition.  I am very surprised by how versatile this ball is to layouts and surface adjustments.  Chris Barnes said it best during team trials, "it's a shiny ball that hooks!"

3.5" pin, placed 1" out from ring finger
dual angle: 55x3.5"x50 w/ CG kicked out
weight hole @ PAP + 1" up
cover: OOB
oil pattern: THS
length: 39-41'
volume: medium-heavy
speed: faster (17-19)
rev rate: cranker (RH)

This pin-down layout provides an early midlane read compared to a "stacked" layout where the pin is above the ring finger. Having this ball with both layouts, the pin-down is by far my favorite of the 2. The ball motion at the break point is more pronounced and precise and gives more room outside after lane transition, however, less angular than a Moxie with the same layout. Backends on the THS are very predictable, which is the best aspect of all 900 Global bowling balls! Definitely my favorite ball, not only to throw but to look at as well!!

The Respect has earned its name among the best pieces of equipment on the market today! It is quite simply THE must-have ball for your arsenal. If you do not own this ball, you're missing out on some great scoring opportunites and higher averages!

My Review of the 900 Global Respect

The layout I chose on this ball is pin up between the fingers cg kicked out 30 degrees.

I find this ball very versatile and can do many different things with just changing the surfaces of the ball. This ball is very good if you need a ball to get threw the lane well and still read the pattern well it is also very strong/angular on the backend.

BALL SPECS:

Coverstock: 79 Alert Hybrid
Finish: 1500 Grit - Polished
Core: Tetra Symmetrical
Layout: 45 x 4 1/8 x 45
RG: 2.49
Differential: 0.052


TEST ENVIROMENT:

40’ Typical House Shot – Synthetic Surface

REVIEW:

When I first got this ball I heard a lot of things about it, the way it read the mid lane and still cleared the fronts.  What I didn’t expect was how ANGLE I get out of this ball after it reads the mid-lane.  Usually when I have to move in to the deeper part of the lane I have trouble finding the right piece to read the mids and carry the corner, not with this ball.  This ball will benefit every type of player tweener, stroker, and even the crankers.  You can put more revs in the ball or take some revs out and the ball still reads and takes a sharp turn to the pocket.  Easily one of the best pieces I have thrown in my bowling career.

LIKES:

Mid-Lane Read
Sharp Backend

900 Global Respect

Coverstock: Hybrid Reactive
Finish: 1500 grit polished
Layout: 70 x 4 3/8 x 70
Pin placement: Below bridge
Test pattern: THS, USBC White 2

The best reaction I had with this ball was when there was a little bit of carry down on both the THS and White pattern as the hybrid coverstock had enough teeth to dig in the oil while maintaining enough energy, and having the more angular backend to drive through the pins. It is very easy to watch the ball rev up in the midlane while having enough energy retained to not roll out and maintain a more continuous motion through the pins. This ball was great during transition periods when more aggressive solids would lose their energy and leave flat ten's. If you are looking for a ball to use for medium to heavy oil patterns that will give you some extra "pop" on the backends, this would be a very good choice.

COMMENTS
Layout: 90x4 7/8x 45
I've owned this ball since September 2015. Now that I have my new PAP measured as well as tons of experience with it, I can give a fair review.
     This ball comes out of the box at 1500 grit polished.  Personally I don't like to keep balls at this surface because I change surfaces quite frequently. Higher grit surfaces like 3000, 4000, or polished finishes allows it to clear the heads yet still rev up thanks to the strong engine. It definitely has a distinct pick up in the midlane and it continues off the spot. When you put lower grit surfaces on it, the ball has enough traction to make the shape down lane smoother and read the front part of the lane. Do not let the versatility fool you! It has a strong cover that requires a decent amount of oil. If I'm looking to use this ball on a fresh pattern, I typically change the surface to 2000 and adjust accordingly. Overall, this ball offers a load of versatility on conditions with a bit of head oil. If you're looking for a strong symmetric that takes surfaces changes well with a predictable yet aggresive motion, I would highly recommend it.

Likes:Layout is55x4-1/4x75,PAP is 4 over and 1/4 up. for me the respect is a good complement to the Dream On. This ball excels on medium conditions when the pattern starts to breakdown. what I was surprised most about this ball is how much energy is saved even though it rolls a lot. the motion isn't skid flip but its not all roll, a very good combination of both. so if your looking for a ball that gets though the fronts when they start to go away and stay in the same zone this would be a great choice.Tim Janz 900 Global staff

900 Global Respect

Speed 16MPH
Rev rate 325
PAP 5 ¾ x 3/8 Up
Dual Angle Layout- 65 x 5 ½ x 40

The best way for me to describe the Respect by 900 Global is simple: Money. This ball has repeatedly proven to be the ball that is in my hand whenever I post big games and high series. I drilled my Respect 65 x 5 ½ x 40 to give me a little more length, with a lot of angle coming back into the pocket. With the S79 Alert Hybrid coverstock and the low RG, high differential Tetra core, the Respect gives you a look that allows you to play many different zones and angles into the pocket. This ball is about 2-3 boards stronger than my Drift, which provides with me a 1-2 punch of bowling balls that complement each other well. With polish on this ball, it is perfect for when the shot begins to break down or transition and you need to make your move deeper inside and but still can throw the ball outside with confidence that it is going to come back to the pocket hard. I have also found success taking this ball down to 3000 and it still rolls phenomenal. By putting surface on the ball, it tames the ball down just enough to allow me to play a little further outside, but still have strong down lane motion to drive the pins straight back. Get out and get your 900 Global Respect today, and make others start to Respect your game.

Respect (2018)
Coverstock: 79 Alert Hybrid
Finish: 1500 Grit Polished
Core: Tetra Symmetric
RG: 2.49
Differential: 0.052

Layout: 75 x 6 x 50
Tester:  PAP 5 1/2 R, 1 1/2 D

Review
The Respect is becoming an arsenal faviorate in the bag for many bowlers.  The big midlane motion along with the strong backend finish allows the player to open up the lane very quickly.  For your typical THS shot the Respect is going to work well and allow you to keep moving along with the transition. For your sport shot scenario the Respect will more likely be used after the lanes breakdown a bit and you want to take advantage of length the box finish provides. If you were a fan of the original Respect you already know what this one can do.  If you have not been introduced to the Respect from 900 Global be sure to check this one out. I truly recommend this one for your THS conditions. It's one of my favorite in the bag.  Grab one today!
