The 900 Global Dream is one of the most versatile balls I’ve ever used. Medium oil Medium Heavy and medium length Heavy conditions this ball will get back to the pocket. I tried different hand positions and speeds to simulate different styles of bowler and found no problem with hitting power. Use your favorite layout and watch it load up at the backend. A totally great ball.

This had become my favorite go-to ball for any kind of oil pattern. It has a clean roll down the lane with a sharp break into the pocket creating a nice skid-flip reaction. A remarkable Identity asymmetric core matched with a 74 Response smooth  pearl coverstock that, paired together gets to the pocket everytime. This addition to the 900 Global family will easily bring anyone's average up during league and cash in tournaments. This ball is great for down & in bowlers, as well as out & in bowlers, for a variety of  oil patterns. Crankers will look for this ball to roll well on medium oil patterns using a medium ball speed. definitely a must-have to any bowler's arsenal.

 The Dream is a great ball for Med-To Heavy oil. The S74 Pearl coversock along with the A-Symetical core allows this to clear the heads and has a skid/flip reaction on the backend. The more you go around it the more angular it becomes. But it still verstile enough to go up the back and make it read a liitle earlierwith a heavier roll. No matter how you bowl This is a Ball that you will want in your Bag.  This ball is really strong on the backend and keeps the pins low for maximum carry. 900Global has really hit it out of the Park with this ball. Thanks for another great ball from 900 Global.

The New 900 Global Dream and what a Dream. This ball is amazing, I laid this ball out with 5 ¼ x 3 ½ x 4 ¼, my PAP is 5 3/8 right and ¾ down. I drilled the ball with the pin slightly above and parallel to my fingers with the CG 1-3/8”” right and ½” down from Center grip. The MB was located directly below the center of my thumb and the weight hole was 5-3/8” right and parallel to my thumb. This is close to one of my favorite layouts and the ball is so much cleaner through the front part of lane and more angular than my eagle pearl on the backend of the lane. I used this ball on a fresh 40’ house pattern, had to start a little right but was able to chase the shot in without changing balls. This Dream never lost any backend motion. The net result for the first night outing 718 for three games this ball is a keeper. This ball is extremely versatile and will fit all game styles from the high rev player to the low rev player. This is a must Pearl for everyone.

900 Global Dream drill pattern 60 x 5 x 40.  A brand new core and cover from the San Antonio boys doesn't disappoint!  Surprising ton of overall hook from the pearl cover.  Better than average mid-lane and a big mover on the backend!  This is an impressive pearl built for some oil.   Can see this ball being a cranker's "Dream"!  Ball really wants to get going from deeper angles, you get to see its true color, which by the way this ball looks cool too!  One of the things not to overlook is being a pearl cover on a THS this ball can be used for 3 games.  As the lanes break this ball gets better and better opening up the lane for big scores.  Took an A pad to the surface and it gave me some earlier hook needed for heavier patterns but I did not sacrifice any backend reaction.  Total winner for 900 Global!

LIVING THE DREAM? WANNA THROW ONE TOO? THE NEW 900 GLOBAL DREAM IS ALL THE BALL YOU NEED FOR HEAVY OIL. PART OF THE ENGINEER SERIES, THE DREAM IS AN ASYMMETRIC BEAST IN OIL. THE 1500 GRIT POLISHED COVER GIVES IT NICE LENGTH BEFORE IT EXPLODES OFF THE BACKEND. THIS IS THE FAN FAVORITE OF ANYONE THAT THREW ONE ION THE THREE DEMO DAYS I'VE DONE IN THE PAST WEEK. THE DREAM ALSO RECOVERS FROM JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE ON YOUR TYPICAL HOUSE SHOT, MAKING IT ALMOST UNFAIR TO THE COMPETITION.

What a ball. Nice heavy mid lane roll with big backend.  Great ball for all but extreme dry or heavy oil lane conditions.  Coverstock takes surface adjustments extremely good.   Any bowler from straight to heavy handed will love this ball.

Length: 40 feet

Volume: light

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): house

This ball is certainly a Dream to throw.  From first appearance the red/blue pearl is very striking.  Once you throw it, you will see how big of performance this ball is capable of.  The Dream has a massive asymmetric weight block that produces a wicked reaction down the lane.  The Dream makes it through the heads extremely clean and begins it’s move about half way through the mids.

The Dream features a brand new cover that really does change directions once it finds some friction.  I made the mistake of throwing the Dream on rather dry lanes at first, and couldn’t control how sharp the ball moved.  Once I moved a little in then I could see how powerful this core/cover combination is.

I can easily see how versatile this ball will be.  I was able to change wrist positions and play more up the boards and control the back end and then move deeper and let the ball react as it wants.  If you are looking for a pearl that has an amazing shape in the back end, look no further than the Dream.  It will surely give your opponents nightmares.

Lane condition bowled on: typical house shot 39 feet in length

Layout: 45x4x65

Ball motion: length with strong snap on backend

The Dream is the newest entry in the engineer series. Sporting an all new S74 response cover and the all new identity asymmetrical core. The Dream is one of the most angular balls from 900 Global. Out of box this will handle medium/heavy oil lane conditions better than most pearls. On medium patterns is where the Dream really shines.  Dream allowed me to play the track area until the pattern started to break down. Then I was able to open the lane up with ease. Dream has plenty of length and great recovery on the backend. The new cover has a lot stronger move at the breakpoint than previous releases. On top of the great performance it has great shelf appeal. So if you are looking for that go to pearl to open up the lanes with, pick up a Dream.

Drilling:   Pin up between fingers
Surface:   OOB
Lane condition:   41ft THS
Description:   Holy backend, Batman! This ball comes off the spot like nothing I have seen before. The asymmetric core matched with the pearl cover allows this ball to get down the lane with ease and then take a 90 degree turn off the end of the pattern. Leaving this at the OOB finish, it allowed me to play a little further outside on the lane, but it can easily be taken down to 2000 or 4000 and make the middle of the lane more playable. When you are having trouble getting the ball to tip the corner, or get out a flat 10, take no second thought to switch to the dream. This is the go to ball if you are looking for a big back end move.

This release from 900 global is very versatile and does very well with surface changes.  This ball has an amazing amount of backend but still does very well getting through oil and still has enough energy to finish hard through the pin deck it also has great hitting power.  If you are looking for a good mid to heavy oil ball you should put this one on your list of balls to look at for sure.

The Dream On is the perfect compliment to The Dream.
If you find that The Dream is getting slightly past the break point
on your lane condition then you need to put the Dream On on the lanes.
With the hybrid cover and same core as The Dream this ball will check up
sooner and blast to the pocket just like the pearl. The Dream On fits all styles
and delivers outstanding hitting power.

The 900 Global Dream is the epitome of skid flip. This ball clears the heads effortlessly and really hooks down lane. This is the ball you're gonna want when you really need to get in and hook it! This is a perfect compliment to the Dream On, when there isn't enough volume to throw the Dream On you can confidently switch to your Dream and whack them!

COMMENTS
Wow! What a great looking ball, both on the lanes and off. Clean through the heads and strong, angular backend ball motion. The backend motion is definitely stronger than a Black Eagle Pearl. The Dream is an easy step down from the Moxie or Dream On. The Dream at the OOB ("E" pad) will be able to handle some oil, but unless you take the cover down to a lower grit and no polish, it is not a heavy oil friendly ball. It will be best suited for a medium-heavy to medium oil shots. Overall, bowlers that want a strong pearl for opening the lanes up or getting you through those tough transition or 2nd shift leagues, the Dream is your new ball!
