Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):


Likes:Layout is 43x4-1/2x35,PAP is 4over and 1/4 up.I drilled this ball with the intension of using it when I need to create angle when there is good volume up front and can no longer play track area on tougher patterns, and it does exactly that. If there isn't good volume in the fronts this ball will almost roll out or not have much left for the pins. so in a nutshell if your bowling on lighter patterns this is NOT the ball your looking for, there are other balls in our line for that!

The Black Ops was the biggest surprise to me in the 900 Global line. Looking at the core specs, having a low rg and super high differential, I expected this ball to be a heavy rolling oil ball that I wouldnít be able to use very often. Wow, how wrong I turned out to be! The Black Ops has actually become my benchmark ball and is one of the cleanest, smoothest, and most predictable balls I have ever thrown from any brand. The Break Asymmetric core is super strong and flares as much as any ball Iíve ever seen, but in my opinion, itís the S70 cover that really allows the Black Ops to stand out! The cover makes this ball extremely clean through the fronts but isnít overly flippy on the backend. The predictability of the Black Ops fits into my arsenal perfectly as a middle benchmark ball. Due to the cover strength of the Dream On and Respect Solid, they handle oil just a little bit better than my Black Ops but the BO handles better on oil than my X. Overall the Black Ops is by far one of my favorite balls of all time. I really hope that Global continues the line and puts the S70 cover on balls in different lines too (wink wink nudge nudge X)Ö Donít be afraid to drill a Black Ops with your favorite drill and use it as a benchmark ball. It covers a wide variety and reacts well on every pattern up to the utmost extremes! Get a Black Ops, you wonít be sorry!

There is so much I can say about this masterpiece of a ball. The Black Ops is the reason I turned to 900 Global and never looked back. I have used this ball all over the lane with different surfaces and have never been disappointed. I currently have two in the bag (pin up and pin down). What makes this ball tremendous is the perfect lane read from start to finish. The 1500 polished finish allows for nice length through the front part of the lanes followed by a smooth yet continuous reaction through the pins. I recommend this ball for everyone with all styles of bowling because of its versatility. Itís a must have, believe me when I say you will not be disappointed.

Ball Specs
Cover Stock: S70 Solid
Finish: 1500 Grit - Polished
Core: Break Asymmetrical
Layout: 45 x 4 ľ x 40
RG: 2.48
Differential: 0.058
Intermediate Diff: 0.021

The Black Ops is the first ball out of my bag. Itís clean through the front part of the lane, stands up in the mid lane, and finishes strong on the backend with great pin carry. Great ball reaction on the fresh and it handled the transition very well with a pin up layout and box finish. Black Ops will be a great ball on medium volume lane patterns and THS. Ball was tested on a THS 41 feet.

Ball Specs:
Coverstock: S70 Solid
Finish: 1500 Grit, Polished
Core: Break Asymmetric
Layout: 55 x 4.5 x 65
RG: 2.48
Differential: 0.058
Intermediate Differential: 0.021

Testing Conditions:
Pattern: Typical House Pattern
Surface: Brunswick Pro Anvilane

Upon receiving the Black Ops, I immediately took the shine off the ball with a 2000 pad. At this surface, the ball clears the fronts well on heavier volume patterns. Where this ball really shines is how well it reads and controls the mid lane, but still gives you decent backend on heavier patterns, even with the high VAL angle. It continues through the pins nicely, as well. The Black Ops really excels on medium to heavier volume patterns.

It takes surface adjustments well, which allows it to be used on a variety of conditions, by a variety of bowlers.
Itís continuation through the pin deck, especially for an asymmetrical bowling ball.
