Drilling: Pin above middle finger, Mass Bias at 50 degrees no hole (5 inches from PAP)
Surface: OOB
Oil: THS (3 different centers)
My first impression after throwing this ball was WOW!!!! I am not sure I have ever had a dull asymmetrical ball hook so much. This ball just does not quit on the fresh. I am able to create some sick angle on some slick patterns so far. I really like that this ball doesn't burn up like some other high performance balls I have thrown. The Dream On doesn't start up overly quick, it reads the mid-lane strong, but not so strong that the bowling ball stops. For any bowler looking for a top end ball that is a hook monster, this is the ball for you!

900Global Dream On
I was able to get a good look at the Dream On in 2 houses on two different shots; during leagues on a 42ft THS and in a tournament last weekend in a different house on a modified THS.  On the leagues 42ft THS this ball was great on the fresh.  The Hybrid Cover allowed the ball to glide down the lane, but made the turn with powerful but controllable ease on the backend.  The continuation through the pocket is what is most impressive as this ball leaves no pin standing.  As the night went on, and further inside I moved the Dream On just kept kicking out the corners while showing its versatility.
 
During the tournament, which was modified THS this ball was first out of the bag. I used it most of the day as we jumped from pair to pair. The ball just seemed to get stronger as the lanes transitioned and allowed me to move and stay slightly inside the other bowlers and watch the backend reaction and pin carry increase. 

The Dream On is a great ball for those Med/Oily conditions and is a must have for the tournament bowler.  This is a great piece from 900Global and will surely look and perform great in your BAG!

The 900 Global Dream On is the perfect compliment to the original Dream.  This is the ball you're gonna wanna throw when there is a heavier volume of oil on the lane, this ball is not afraid of oil!  The 74 Response Hybrid coverstock really provides a nice smooth reaction.  This is one of the first balls out of my bag no matter where/what I'm bowling on.

3" Pin placed 1" out
Mass bias strong
75x3.5"x55
OOB 4000 grit

Dream On is the ball you'll need for the medium/medium-heavy conditions where you need some length and a strong roll or more angularity into the pocket. This layout gives the same motion provided by the Break Down but sharpens the angle greatly! This ball just doesn't know when to stop! The most-continuous ball I've seen in quite some time! I believe this ball would be ideal for playing the 45' Masters and similar patterns.

COMMENTS
If you were in love with the Dream like I was and really wanted the same ball in a solid, enter the Dream On! The only thing is this one is a hybrid! The reaction of the Dream On is nothing short of spectacular. It is really hard to believe it isn't a solid. This is the perfect ball to start out with and be able to open the lanes up and move deep with. I couldn't believe how much recovery room this ball allowed. I went with a more aggressive layout, 50*x4"x40* because I wanted a strong asymmetrical that I would be able to use on some oil and on flatter patterns. Let me tell you, what I got was clean through the heads and a strong backend move. Just what I was looking for. This ball really begins to rev up midlane but conserves its energy for the backend move. Pins don't stand a chance. It will almost certainly be your ball of choice for when you need a strong backend on flatter patterns. What's even better is, when the Dream On starts reading too early, you have the perfect compliment in the Dream. No need to move. After one shot with this ball and you will be hooked!

Likes:  Wow, this ball hooks.  The Dream On stands up earlier with a more controllable backend than the Dream.  You will be surprised at the margin of error this ball allows!  If you’re looking for a ball that will move in heavy oil and provide carry then the Dream On is for you!  Recently in one of my leagues the THS changed and it had a ridiculous amount of heavy oil, I pulled out the Dream On and was easily covering 10 more boards than all other competitors using the other brands most hooking balls.  Needless to say, the next week there were a few other bowlers that had purchased a Dream On and were doing the same as I was the week prior.  Even with a hybrid coverstock, this ball out hooks more than anything on the market today!  To date, this is the most hooking ball I have ever thrown!
The Dream On is an amazing compliment to the Dream.  An absolute must have for anyone’s arsenal.

BALL SPECS:

Coverstock: 74 Response hybrid
Finish: 4000 Pad
Core: Identity Asymmetrical
Layout: 45 x 4 ¾  x 45
RG: 2.48
Differential: 0.054
Intermediate Diff: 0.024

TEST ENVIROMENT:

2015 Nationals Team Pattern (38 Feet) – Synthetic Surface

REVIEW:

I tested my Dream On against the Dream.  With this testing done on a shorter pattern, the Dream On did exactly what I anticipated.  The Dream On over all just HOOKS.  For a high-end asymmetrical piece it is very clean through the fronts but still picks up a little earlier then the Dream because of the hybrid coverstock.  When the Dream becomes to much of the skid snap motion you see from a pearl, you will be able to switch to the Dream On and still get the angular motion but more controllable down lane.  With the controllable down lane motion, I found it more versatile to different hand positions then the original Dream.

LIKES:

Smooth angular motion
Very clean through the fronts
Controlled Backend

SUMMARY:

The Dream On is one of the most angular hybrid asymmetrical pieces I have thrown.  It should be used on patterns that have more head oil and that are blended out.

DREAM ON
Coverstock: 74 Responseâ„¢ Hybrid
Finish: 4000 Pad
Color: Blue/Purple/Black
Core: Identityâ„¢ Asymmetric
Engineer Series
2.48 Radius of gyration
.054 Differential
.021 Intermediate Differential
Positive Axis Point  5 7/16 by 1/4 up
Layout 5 1/2 x 6 x 5
I was not a big fan of asymmetricals but I am now..... the DREAM ON is a must have in your arsenal and it's just different enough from it's friend and more aggressive cover the DREAM BIG.  This ball was unbelievable on this fresh oil pattern  at the Open Championships in El Paso TX, as I started with a 278 game in doubles with only one ball out of the pocket for the first three games of the day on this demanding oil condition. I was able to start out around 12th board at the arrows with a late strong back end reaction crossing around the 8 board at the range finder down lane. This is one of my favorites, probably because of its hybrid cover and late back end reaction.  If you want a no brainer in your bag this is it!   Make your friends DREAM ON to have this ball when they see your reaction when you throw this rock down the lane.  Remember.....  performance for YOUR game is a must!!!!!

My ABSOLUTELY favorite ball.  This ball is a 100% must.  I can't say enough about it.  I have it and I have raised my average to 242.  I am destroying the pins with this amazing marble.  This ball reads the mid-lane and still has enough energy to react on the back end.  It is extremely forgiving and versatile on any lane condition.  You must RUN, don't walk, to your nearest pro shop to pick one of these up.  I don't normally preach this much about a bowling ball, but this ball will make history.  I want more than one of these, they are that good.

LANE CONDITION

Length:N/A

Volume:N/A

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


COMMENTS

Likes: Strong asymmetrical ball that reads the body of the lane like no other asymmetric ball I have ever thrown.  Oh yeah, and hits like a truck.   

Dislikes: None

Layout: Pin 4" from PAP and above fingers w/ hole 5" from center grip on midline

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

Ever dream of striking during every competition?  Well, keep that dream alive with the Dream On.  This ball is one of my favorite asymmetrical balls to date.  It isn't too strong up front, which allows it to store a lot of energy for the hook and roll phases.  I use this ball whenever I can on heavier volume or longer sport patterns and Typical House Shots.  I will definitely be drilling more of these in the near future and I highly recommend drilling the Dream On if you, a friend, or a customer is looking for their next "big" ball.

REVIEW

I drilled my Dream On with the pin under my ring, cg kicked right without an x-hole. This ball is one of my favorites by far! It’s extremely versatile, has amazing hitting power, and really puts the bowler in control of ball reaction. The Dream On is usually the first ball out of my bag and more often than not, stays in my hands throughout my entire league set. I loved my original Dream On so much that I drilled up a second one with a pin up layout to give me another option in case I need a little bit more push and cornering maneuverability later in the night but so far, really haven’t had the need for it during a typical 3 game league set. The combination of the strong core and hybrid cover on the Dream On is what I give credit to its versatility. It doesn’t burn up early like most strong-cored asymms and continues making the corner even when I need to get deeper on the lane. For a league set, I would recommend leaving it in box finish. But in my case, now that I’ve drilled up a second Dream On, I like to keep this one a touch on the duller side (around 1000 grit) and my pin up Dream On shinier (around 3000-4000 with a bit of polish). With this combination, I really don’t need much else for a THS (typical house shot). Of course, I love all of my other Global balls too much to commit to just one but it’s become more and more difficult for me to pry this ball out of my own hands.

I drilled this ball with the pin at 1:30 off my ring finger and the MB about an inch right of my thumb hole and used 1500-grit on the cover.  I have recently had a love affair with most hybrid bowling balls and this one quickly shot of the charts on my usage list.  This ball is very versatile and will handle heavier oil patterns as well as the dreaded over/under ball reactions you tend to get late in game 2 start of game 3 in a typical league night.  This ball will start to read nicely at about 42’ and give you that strong continuation drive to the pocket. (My PAP is 5 3/4” right and 5/8” up, ball speed is about 15.5mph and medium rev rate)
