900Global is offering more performance in their entry-level bowling balls. The 900Global Burner series uses the very versatile S62 Reactive coverstock and introduces the Centroid Symmetric core. The core design provides a lower density core which creates an overall reaction shape that is more aggressive. This bowling ball offers a reliable reaction when the lanes have broken down.


All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: S62 Reactive
Ball Finish: 1500 Grit, Polished
Core: Centroid Symmetric
RG: 2.53 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.037 (15# ball)

Drilling pattern: 4.25 x 40

Pin position: Above and right of ring finger

PAP: 4.5 over and 1 up

Pattern: THS

One of my absolute favorite balls of all time was the old 900 Global Dark Matter (RIP) and since that ball I've been looking for something that can mimic (or at least come close) to the motion I got out of that ball. The Burner Solid is the closest in recent memory. A bit of a weaker solid (shiny) coverstock that clears the front and mid lane with relative ease but then has a much more rounded/slower back end motion. Being in an area where there is limited head oil I've been able to move in and circle the lane with this ball once a little bit of carry down had developed (seriously, the head oil feels like drops at times). This ball is a great value at the given price point with exceptional versatility and performance.

Comments
The Burner Solid reminds me a lot of the Hustle PBR. It offers a smooth motion with a lot of control, all while being on the weaker side of SPI balls. I compared the Burner Solid to the original Hy-Road in my YouTube ball review. Throwing those two balls side by side showed me that the Hy-Road is several feet cleaner and sharper down lane, and the Burner Solid is earlier and has a rounder motion. This new release will be great for playing further right on house shots and will also work well when you need to move left with tighter angles. When the fronts start to go but you can't open up your angles too much, this is the ball to blend out the wet dry line. Let me not leave out that the blue and orange of the Burner Solid look great together!

Burner Solid Review

Ball Specs:
Global Burner Solid
Cover stock    S62 polished Solid Reactive
Weight Block    Symetric
Color      Orange / Teal
Finish      1500 Polished

Bowler Specs:
Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up
Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50.
Speed at release 17

Review:
The Burner Solid will not be a hook monster but does exactly what is designed to do. This ball is stronger than my Hustle PBR (I used the same 1500 plus polish for comparison) and seems to carry better for me. The Burner Solid creates a very nice controlled shape on the lane when other polished balls are reading the dry too strongly. This ball will fit between my Hustle PBR (with polish) and UFO Alert in my line up. The core and cover create a very predictable motion which is nice on lanes that are wet dry or have stripped back ends. The Burner line is very easy for me to trust for motion and carry even with its lower price point. I have drilled this ball for various styles but my Higher Rev crowd is seeing excellent t results. I am not sure if any of the Burners will make it into the Match Maker Ball Demos but I would love to see that happen. The Burner line is a great option for bowlers who want much more punch than an entry level reactive ball or bowlers building a complete arsenal. This could be a great addition to a tournament arsenal. It has found a way into mine.

Summary:
The Burner Solid rolls like a higher priced ball.
The control and hit of this ball are very good.
The Color is nice and looks good rolling down the lanes
This ball should work well for all styles of bowlers.

900 Global Burner Solid/Pearl by Casey Murphy
« Reply #4 on: August 24, 2021, 04:14:39 PM »
Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  400 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 ˝ over and ˝ up

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
VLS Layout: 
Layout 1:  5 x 4 x 2 ˝  (pin above bridge)
Layout 2:  4 ˝ x 4 x 4 1/8 (pin below bridge)

I was a big fan of the Afterburners, but they were a little too weak at times for me.  In comes the Burner Solid and Pearl and the first thing I noticed about these balls was the strong midlane and how easy they rolled forward and never quit.  I LOVE the ball roll I get from the new Burners

I put my Burner Solid pin down and it’s super clean and smooth and continuous, it gives me Hustle Ink vibes.  It’s a great benchmark ball for the fresh.

My Burner Pearl is pin up and it’s AMAZING for light volume or transition.  It feels like I can use it on much more volume than I could the Afterburners or even the Hustles. 

Don’t sleep on the Burner Pearl or Solid, they are great lighter oil/transition balls from 900 Global

Burner PEARL:
The Burner Pearl features the S62 Pearl cover and the Centroid symmetric Core. The numbers on the Burner Pearl core are 2.53 RG, .037 diff.

Mine is drilled 4.5” to PAP with a 3.5” pin buffer. This is a great mid-level offering from 900Global. I would label the backend shape as fast response and medium strength. The Burner Pearl floats a little too far down the lane for my personally so I will get the most use out of the ball after hitting it will a 2,000 grit Abralon pad. If you like a skid-snap shape and a medium strength ball the Burner Pearl is a must-have.

Mine is drilled 4” to PAP with a 3” pin buffer. This is another great mid-level offering from 900Global. My Burner Solid is a great fit in my arsenal that is just underneath my benchmark balls like the IQ Tour. I would label the backend shape as medium response and medium strength. The Burner Solid floats farther down the lane than I was expecting so to get the most use out of it I sanded mine with a 1,500 grit Abralon pad.

Burner Solid:
I drilled up my Burner Solid 4 x 25. The diff rating suggested a little more flare potential than the usual lower powered SPI offerings so I adjusted my back angle accordingly. Compared to my other lower end balls like the Hustles. the Burner is more on the backend. Same kind of push thru the front, just more responsive like my higher end balls. The Global offerings keep getting better and better....

Compared to my other lower end balls like the Hustles. the Burner Pearl is more skid/flip than the Burner on the backend. I get a few feet further than my Burner solid but more back end than the solid also. The Burners should be a good 1-2 punch for higher rev players looking for performance at a lower price point.

Burner Solid Review by Luke Rosdahl
« Reply #9 on: August 31, 2021, 04:37:12 PM »
The Burner Solid features the S62 Pearl coverstock at a 1500 grit polished finish and the controllable Centroid symmetric core.  S62 is of similar strength to Storm’s Reactor cover on the Electrify series and Roto’s VTC cover on the Hustle series, and is designed for light to medium volumes.  My layout is 4 ľ x 5 x 2 ˝ which puts the pin over my ring finger and stacks the cg below.  The Centroid core comes in at a 2.53 RG and .037 differential in 15 pounds and is a bit stronger than the cores in those other lines, but the general overall reaction is still in the light to medium oil and/or transitioned condition category. At the same surface, the Pearl and Solid aren’t terribly different from one another, just a bit earlier and smoother from the Solid, but not significantly enough to reflect a difference in the ratings.  I would recommend taking the Solid to something like 3000 grit to create more separation in the reactions to give you a very “solid” pair of complimenting reactions for a very low price.  I rate the Burner Solid a 4 on hook, 7 on length, and 7 on backend strength.

The Centroid core comes in at a 2.53 RG and .037 differential in 15 pounds and is a bit stronger than the cores in those other lines, but the general overall reaction is still in the light to medium oil and/or transitioned condition category.  I’ve dubbed the Burner Pearl “Baby Zen,” as it has a very similar controlled and versatile look.  It’s a nice blend of several different things, and will look great for the majority of bowlers on lighter to medium conditions that the Zen may be too much for, or once the Zen has begun to hook too much or too early.  I rate the Burner Pearl a 4 on hook, a 7 on length, and a 7 on backend strength.

LANE CONDITION

Volume: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


COMMENTS

If you're looking to update your THS league arsenal this may be the ball for you.
The Burner Solid is intended for medium to light oil league patterns and accommodating to all styles.
The cover is the solid S62 version of the popular S62 hybrid found on the Afterburners with the the ALL NEW Centroid Symmetric Core. This ball for me is 3 boards stronger than its predecessor. A more rounded controlled shape throughout its transition from skid, hook to roll.
My layout is 4 1/2x 4 3/8x 1 3/4. I adjusted my surface with a worn 3k pad to knock off the shine and handle more of the medium oil patterns. The Burner Solid is my game 2-3 ball as the lanes transition. Adjusting the cover, I was able to combat any carry down where I bowl league at. Very forgiving mid-performance ball at a bargain price.

Global Burner Solid:
S62 Solid Reactive with Centroid Core
1500 grit polished - layout: 6 x 2 x 5
Well, this one was a little surprising for me. Wanted a ball closer to the INK and the Camo just did not do what I expected, mostly due to the experimental layout I used on it, I found the Global Burner Solid a close 2nd to the Hustle INK. A strong ball from front to back of the lane, still managed to save energy and also did not under hook or over hook. Really liked how easy it rolled and was predictable from front to bak, no "WHOA" what was that reaction like some other entry level performance pieces out there.  Will replace my INK in my tournament arsenal for sure once I get back up and rolling through the tournament in the near future.

Ok all, this ball is surprising to me. As people read my reviews...YES, I hit this ball with a 3000 pad and I love getting a little lane shine on it. I have both the Solid and the Pearl, and amazed on how this ball rolls. For me the solid doesn't "jump" on the back end. Especially on a league shot. If the lanes dry out some, or you wanna play off other people with a bowling ball that shouldn't over react...this is the ball to get out of your bag. If it starts to hook a little early pull out the Pearl Burner. Its just an awesome 2 ball group to have in your bag. Pretty Happy with them. 900 Global is coming a long way indeed!

I drilled this one 45X4X40 and all i can say is this ball is going to be a house shot killer!!! Very clean through the heads and get to the end of the pattern and looks to destroy the pocket. For a entry level ball from global its hits hard. With some added surface can see it doing some work on flatter patterns. Overall a great ball for both beginning bowlers and advanced when it comes to league night
