Dream Big reviews:

I have drilled two of these, one being a pin up 5 inch from pap layout and the other being a pin down 2 1/2 from pap with a p3 weight hole.
The pin up one I have had great success on the 2015 Nationals Team, 2014 Team, 2011 Masters pattern. This ball is stronger than my Dream On drilled same way by about 3 boards. Has a great midlane read that continues through the pins, but a smoother roll than the Dream On. With the solid alert coverstock this ball will need some oil in the heads, but can be used on a variety of conditions.
The pin down layout on this ball was more for oily lanes along with flat patterns. I just drilled this ball and used it at a 8 game sweeper in the IB open 2015 pattern which is 46 in length. Ball rolled extremely well on this pattern and with the amount of oil still was able to have some movement with the oob 4000 cover. With this type of layout it gives me a great midlane move and a controlled arc throughout the lane.

Likes:Heavy oil pattern? Low rev rate? Looking for high scores? Well, then the Dream Big is for you! I would recommend this ball for anyone needing a ball that reads the front part of the lane and doesn't skid thru it, but yet the cover doesn't just hook at your big toe either! This ball reads the midlane very well on these patterns and has great continuation through the pins. This is a great combination of core to cover that will help you on any oily to heavy oil THS pattern or sport patterns like the Shark or Badger. This ball will just allow you to bowl on these heavy oil patterns and not let you feel like you have to baby it to get it into a roll. This ball is meant for oily patterns and will do a great job of handling that. So dreaming of high scores on oily lanes? Then Dream Big!! I drilled mine 65 x 5 1/2 x 40. Well done 900 Global!

Speed    17-18 MPH
Rev rate   450
PAP   4-7/8 and 1/3 up
Axis Tilt   15 degrees
Axis Rotation   30 degrees
Dream Big   30x4.5x30
This is definitely the strongest ball now in the 900 Global lineup. The Dream On used to be the biggest hooking ball in my bag, but the Dream Big is even bigger! If you have a heavy oil condition to deal with, the Dream Big will read the lane with ease. The most impessive trait about this ball for me is the fact that it doesn't overreact off the spot down lane or pick up too early. For such a strong ball reaction, this ball is extremely controllable down lane which is something that I don't see very often. As compared to the Dream On, the Dream Big is a couple boards stronger overall, but the down lane motion is a bit more subtle due to the solid Alert Coverstock. The OOB finish at 4000 has plenty of teeth to read through the oil, but it can be lowered quite easily to pick up even more for those with lower rev rates or higher ball speeds.

DREAM BIG
 Coverstock: 79 Alert™ Solid
Finish: 4000 Grit
Color: Pink/Blue/Black
Core: Identity™ Asymmetric
Engineer Series
2.48 Radius of gyration
.054 Differential
.021 Intermediate Differential
Positive Axis Point  5 7/16 by 1/4 up
Layout 6 x 1 1/2 x 4 1/2

I was aware how much my DREAM ON (Hybrid Version) hooked so I drilled a very smooth layout for this hook monster..... it's scary how much this ball would hook if I drilled a stronger one.  I kept this ball with the 4000 grit finish just like new and boy this ball has some serious mid lane reaction. The DREAM BIG has surprise ease through the front part of the lane for a solid cover while retaining a strong backend reaction.  It will work great on today's house conditions, and will be one of your first balls out of the bag on those challenge and sport patterns too.  The DREAM BIG will need a medium to high volume oil to maximize its potential.  Every bowler needs one of these, but of course that's only if you want superior performance for YOUR game.....

Comments:
          Dream Big. 900 Global's Dream Big utilizes the Idenity Asymmetric core and the 79 Alert Solid Cover. This
ball really holds it line through the midlane and really gives you a steep angle on pocket entry. If you're looking
for a ball that needs to turn the corner on medium to heavy volume patterns, then look no further than the Dream Big.
I was able to play more in the post area on my THS and at no point in time did I worry about this ball getting back
to the pocket. There was a few times i sailed the ball out past my break point and the Dream big seemed to have no
problem motoring back to the pocket. If your bag is lacking in the High Performance ball department look no further
and get youself a Dream Big. Big Core, Big Cover, Big Hook, Dream Big.

DREAM BIG
 Coverstock: 79 Alert™ Solid
Finish: 4000 Grit
Color: Pink/Blue/Black
Core: Identity™ Asymmetric
Engineer Series
2.48 Radius of gyration
.054 Differential
.021 Intermediate Differential

There is a reason for the ball name to be Dream BIG. This ball provides BIG hook. I have mine laid out pin below middle finger about 5 inches off of axis with no hole. Mass Bias is at about 50 degrees. This ball is the strongest in my bag. So far I haven't seen enough oil to stop this one. What is crazy is how strong the ball is, yet it doesn't lose energy fast at all. The continuation is always there whether I am very straight or opening up my angles. This is the ball you would want when you can't get anything else to hook. This one is about 4 more stronger in the front than the Dream On. I was shocked that 900 Global could make a ball stronger than the Dream On, but they definitely did. For low rev players or slick patterns, this is the ball for you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

LANE CONDITION

Dream Big
Layout:  4.24x3.5x2.5
PAP:  3 right, 1.25 up
About the ball…
The newest addition to 900 Global’s high-end Engineer series is the Dream Big. This ball uses the 79 Alert Solid coverstock, where the previous releases in this line, the Dream and Dream On, used versions of the 74 Alert cover. It features the same Identity Asymmetric core as the two previous Dreams.
My opinions…
This ball is a must have for the heavy oil.  It reads the mid lane with a strong aggressive arc to the pocket.  The Dream Big reads the mid lane earlier than the Dream On and has 3-5 more boards of hook.  I have used this on a typical house shot as well as sport shots and it is one of the first balls out of my bag for the longer or higher volume oil patterns.  For those of you with a lot of hand you will need lots of oil to use this ball.  For the folks with less hand this will be a great ball for the typical house shot, it will give you a strong motion to the pocket without being flippy.  This is one of those balls that everyone should have.

PAP - 5 1/8 over & 1/4 up
Speed - 17-18 mph

The Dream Big is the perfect addition to the Dream line.  The strongest ball in the lineup provides the bite needed in the heavy oil.  When the Dream On just isn't giving you enough grip, the Dream Big will grab on and make the turn.  I've been able to use the Dream Big on the heavier volumes to open up the lane when others are struggling to get a consistent reaction.  If you bowl on sport or THS with heavier oil conditions, you need to have this in your bag.

900 Global Dream Big
I drilled mine 45x4x35

This ball is very clean through the heads for heavy oil ball. It has strong mid lane roll and strong back end roll. It is about 4 boards stronger than dream on. This ball works good on house league shots and flat sport patterns. It is a very versatile ball and will open up lane on longer, tighter patterns.

The Dream Big, a big heavy oil ball, fast speed, medium speed and slow speed players
will have no trouble with oil volume with this ball. The Dream Big retains its energy for the backend of the lane where you need the power. A lot of heavy oil balls lose energy in the mid part of the lanes the Dream Big retains it. The cover and core match up perfectly for heavy oil. With my slower ball speed at 15.2 I drilled mine 2-˝ inches pin to pap, 6-˝ inches psa to pap and a 1-˝ inch pin buffer. For those bowlers that can’t get enough power on oily lanes the Dream Big will do the job.

Hand: Left
Pin Placement: Inch above ring finger
CG Placement: Inch under ring finger
Mass Bias:      Drilled through (thumb)

Do you like seeing your ball make a right turn (left turn for the righties)? Then get the Dream Big!!! I love the length it gives me, with no problem making the turn once it hits the dry. This ball is clean through the heads and sharp off the spot!

900 Global Dream Big

Layout: 50 x 5-1/8 x 35
Oil Pattern: 40' with 25ML THS
Lane Surface: Wood
Bowler Specs: 330 Rev Rate 17 MPH 22* Tilt 66* Rotation
PAP: 5-3/8 over 1/2 up

Review:

The Dream Big was my personally most anticipated release from 900 Global and it didn't fail to live up to expectations. Using the 79 Alert Solid on the Identity Asymmetric core has given us one of the biggest motions available on the market. I used my favorite layout on this monster to compare it to the original Dream and was awarded with 6-8 more boards of hook and the ability to handle a ton more oil in the head and middle part of the lane. If you are looking for "hook in a box" you should definitely give the Dream Big a look.

What I like about the Dream Big is the hook. However I'm still able to get a nice controllable arc in the heavier oil patterns. For me I know when I get onto a pattern where there is more oil I can ball up from my Black Ops which still gives me a smooth arc and gets down lane but with the Dream Big it starts up quick and gives me more overall hook and a better look on the heavier conditions when I need that extra little hook. I am also able to move left with my feet at the start of league and this ball allows me to keep my same line for most of the night. Only having to make slight adjustments rather than having to make a drastic move with a ball change. If you are looking for something with more overall hook then this is the ball that needs to be in your bag.
