900 Global Eternity review by Ethan Fiore

Lane Condition
Length: 40
Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

Comments
The Eternity from 900 Global is the perfect 1-2 combo. With the S84 Pearl Coverstock, it likes to clear the fronts very well with a lot of control in the midlane. Compared to the Altered Reality, this one is a little bit cleaner and controllable but compared to the Absolute, it is weaker front to back. It is the perfect ball for when the lanes are on fire!

Likes: The ball is clean through the heads and strong off the spot. I would not say it is exactly the Altered Reality but is pretty darn close if you’re looking for a replacement. I love that I’m able to play all parts of the lane with this ball on a THS. This is my new benchmark ball, first out the bag for league night.

Dislikes: Ball got a little dirty quickly and needed to be cleaned and polished to get the pop back, other than that no complaints so far.

900 Global's 900 series releases have been gaining in popularity in recent years, particularly among the best bowlers. The Reality series gives you powerful options in multiple shapes to tackle the toughest lane conditions. The newest 900 series release brings back the super popular S84 Response Pearl that was featured on the Altered Reality. The Altered built an amazing reputation for clean, sharp motion and bringing that shape back to the line was a must. Global added an new core called Epoch to the cover to create the Eternity.  The Epoch core makes an improvement on the design by refiguring the idea behind the original break cores to help the ball store energy even better. The resulting team-up gives you an abundance of clean, sharp readable motion.

I tested the Eternity in league. I threw it a couple times in practice just to get an idea of how it looked on the fresh pattern. I was plenty strong, but is so clean and reactive that our high volume, long house pattern made it look a bit over/under trying to play the track. I put it away to try it game 3 which is where I had hoped to find a use for it. The fronts break down alot because of friction in the surface up front but the high volume they use to combat that early causes the lanes to stay pretty tight down-lane. This can give you the nightmare scenario late where you have to fight the ball through the front and when you do, it doesn't want to recover down-lane. It takes away a lot of area that should be there on a pattern this high ratio, and really favors guys with the higher ball speed and lower revs who can stay right all night. The Eternity became the great equalizer for me as the cover is clean enough to clear the fronts but the core gives you so much sharp down-lane motion that it has no problem reading the spot and recovering from getting right down-lane. Another characteristic that it shares with the Altered is the ability to create a great amount of angle in a small window down-lane which gives you a lot of area to not just get to the pocket but also carry.

I would recommend the Eternity for anyone who wants/needs to see a lot of motion down-lane. If you bowl anything with a remotely longer format this ball is going to be a great addition to your bag. Being able to overpower the backends without fearing the friction up front is essential.

The Eternity will turn heads!

Bowlers Info: RH tweener, PAP 4-5/8 x 3/4 up, 380 RPM, 13* of Axis tilt, 60* of Axis Rotation

Ball Layout: 45 x 5-1/4 x 35
VLS: 5.25 x 4 x 2.5

Finish: OOB

The new 900 Global Eternity is a VERY versatile asymmetric pearl.  This is very similar to the previous Altered Reality, but better!  Comparatively, this piece is cleaner and more continuous than the original Altered which means this ball is more versatile across the boards.  I put a 5-1/4” pin with 2.5” pin buffer which puts the pin high above my bridge so this piece will be clean thru the fronts and have a continuous strong motion once it sees the friction.  Compared to my Exotic Gem, this one is more forgiving, and I can get deeper inside with this ball and know it will retain enough energy to kick out the corner pins.  Put a little surface on it and it will dig into the oil for a great mid-lane read.  This new core/cover combination is truly a winner that is great for a variety of conditions and player styles.  Don’t wait on this one, it will deliver many strikes!

900 Global Eternity – WWRD 2/17/2023

Cover: S84 Response Pearl Reactive
Core:  Epoch Asymmetric Core
RG: 2.49
RG . Diff. 0.050
Finish: Reacta Gloss

900 Global’s new Eternity is an Asymmetrical Pearl piece that is good for Medium-Heavy oil conditions.  PAP is 5 5/16 R 1 3/16 Up. Rev Rate: 400.  Speed: 16.5.  Drilled this piece with the Pin up between the fingers and CG kicked out 1” from the palm and the Mass Bias 1” to the Right of the Thumb.   Out of Box ball motion is clean through the fronts with a smooth motion on the backend.  I took a 2k and 3k Abralon afterwards and it was still clean through the fronts with a stronger continuous backend motion.  I compared this to 3 Pieces.  Reality Check (Hybrid) was stronger by 2-3 boards.  Reality (Solid) was 1-1 Right with a smooth controllable motion.  Zen (Pearl) was 4-4 Right but started a few feet earlier in the mids with continuous backend motion.  This is an Asymmetrical Zen.  This is a good step down piece after the Reality Check.  This is a ball for every type of bowler.

The all new Eternity (Altered reality 2.0) is a perfect replacement to the Altered Reality that was banned last season. This ball is everything that the Altered Reality was and just a little more. This ball has the same strong early roll, however, the Eternity is a little more continuous through the pins. The Altered Reality was a great piece,however there were limits to how far left I could get before I ran into carry issues. Eternity solves this issue, I am able to keep moving left without fear of losing carry percentage. I am extremely excited for this release, this ball will be a go-to in my bag for a long time!

Core: Epoch Asymmetric
Covers: S84 Response Pearl
Finish: Reacta Gloss
RG: 2.51 (14lb)
Differential: 0.044 (14 lb)

ME:
Right-Handed Tweener
Speed: 16-17 MPH
Rev Rate: 420
PAP: 5 1/2 R 7/16 Up

Ball Layout: Pin under Ring 5 1/2 X 4 X 3 1/2 VLS

When the Altered Reality was discontinued, it was a crushing blow as that high end strong cover, strong core, pearl asymmetric ball was one of my absolute favorites.  When I saw that a replacement was going to be coming, in the form or the Eternity, I was really excited.
 
First let’s start with the colors, the silver, black, and purple as just stand out, with the yellow engraving.  This ball looks amazing, but looks are not the only thing amazing about this ball.
 
Using a pin down layout and a bigger pin buffer, I wanted to let this ball just go and that is exactly what I got.  This ball has no issues clearing the front of the lane, while still being able to get in the hook phase in the right spot.  I didn’t have to worry about this ball making the corner, as like it’s predecessor (Altered) this ball saves a lot for the down lane motion.  I had this ball a touch less than the Altered, but that most likely is due to the difference in the layouts between the two balls.
 
Comparing this to the Reality Check, drilled similar, the Reality Check is a couple feet sooner and was more forward down lane.  The balls would play well off each other when the fronts start to get chewed up, you can get to the Eternity and still stay in the same zone for longer.
 
I would see this ball being very good for a variety of styles, and see it excelling in a higher rev rate player later in blocks in tournaments.
 
Overall another super stellar release from 900 Global.

900 Global strikes another success with the Eternity. And with the winning combination of the all-new Epoch Core and the proven S84 Response Pearl Coverstock, the Eternity is undoubtedly the start of another legendary series in the 900 Global lines of bowling balls. So, let’s take a closer look at the Eternity and what makes it a must-have to your arsenal!

Let’s first look at the brilliant asymmetric design of the Epoch Core. As an older and straighter player, my game thrives on a hefty and more beefy core like the Epoch Asymmetric. So, early on, I liked how the Epoch core set its path of destruction at my release. The Epoch core builds an incredible amount of torque as it rev’s briskly in the midsection. And as I watched the Eternity make its turn off the pattern, the Epoch core turned that torque into unrelenting raw power! In addition, I liked how the Epoch core was decisive in its motion off the exit and rolled with an unrelenting continuation through the pins destroying everything in its path. If you are a down-and-in player or a low-rev player with less “hand,” you will enjoy the comfort the Epoch Core delivers. It will keep you in your shot, especially when you need extra help because you know you fell off your shot.

The S84 Response Pearl was a great choice by 900 Global to put on the Eternity. I like the smoothness and the crispness the S84 Pearl provides going down the lane. And because of its flexibility to surface adjustments, I quickly found the right traction that made my Eternity explosive! First, I took my Eternity to 1500-grit Abralon, followed by Storm Step 2 (320-1500 grit compound). And the S84 Pearl performed excellently throughout a night of league play. Again, I found the S84, cleared the heads smoothly, and established excellent traction early on fresh oil in the mid-lane. And I really liked how the S84 response Pearl was smooth yet crisp of the pattern all night. And lastly, I liked how the S84 Pearl didn’t become erratic or “jumpy” as the night went on, allowing me to enjoy a smooth, continuous, and predictable motion all night long.

In conclusion, 900 Global has done an outstanding job with the Eternity. The Eternity is a strong and controllable powerhouse that will deliver results for any straighter, low-rev player like me. And if you liked the Reality line, you are going to love the Eternity! So, stop in your local Storm VIP Pro Shop today and have the Eternity ready for tonight’s league. Success is waiting!

Eternity
Coverstock: S84 Response Pearl Reactive with Reacta Gloss
Core: EPOCH Asymmetric
Review:
If you are still looking for a replacement for your Altered Reality look no further than the Eternity. This ball is as close as you will get to the Altered. This ball is very clean through the fronts but strong off the spot. When comparing this ball to others in my bag I kept coming back to the fact that this ball has a very similar ball motion to the Zen. Which having an asymmetric version of the Zen is great to have. I tend to pull this ball out of my bag early during leagues and when the lanes start to breakdown during tournaments. I did mess with the surface a little. Which I knocked the reacta gloss off I got a very smooth rolling ball, similar to when I did it to my Zen. I decided to keep the reacta gloss on the ball to help it clear the fronts and get the reaction down lane. I suggest picking up one of these balls sooner rather than later.

Has anyone ever been excited about the new 900 Global Eternity?
Wow is all I have to say. Yes it has some back end to it indeed. I threw it for a few games out of the box, It didn't really click with me, lol..I'm 49 years old. So I hit it with a 3000 pad and it really fit into my bag. Especially after a little lane shine. For me, its still a deeper playing ball. The most recent, I hit a 749 with it last Thursday. Standing 28 with my left foot, at the arrows looking at 16-17, and getting it out to 8-10 and she comes back really nice. The S84 Response cover and the new Epoch Asymmetric Core, we are in business! Its a lot easier to read this ball going down the lane, so it makes it a little easier to make some moves. I ended up my series standing 32 with my left foot, and at the arrows 18-20, and ended up getting it out to 8-10 still. It was a fun night indeed. I cant wait to bowl again!

OH BABY. I was super excited for this one, the Reality line has been my favorite from 900 Global (including the Zen). The same covers from the Reality’s wrapped around a brand new Epoch Core give me exactly what I need from a high end asym pearl ball. This NEVER stops. This is the strongest ASYM pearl through the pins I have ever thrown. Some ASYM pearls get lazy quick and during tournament play you need to get in or get out of them quickly; that’s not the case with this one. The Eternity is eternally always great. It never quits at all, even when the fronts start going away this ball stores energy still. Every 900 Global releases has SLAPPED, add this to the list.

Review
The 900 Global Eternity features the popular S84 Response (featured in the reality series) pearl cover wrapped around the new Epoch Core, which was inspired from the original break core used in the iconic Ops line series. This ball is very similar to the altered reality. Very clean through the front part of the lane with a very strong reaction on the backend. I tested this ball on a 42 feet typical house pattern. I was able to stand anywhere from 18 to 30 boards and rolling the Eternity between the 5 and 10 boards with great carry. This ball will be in my bag for league and tournaments. This is a great ball for all levels of bowlers. Order one from your local pro shop today! My ball review videos are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite.

Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  400 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 ½ over and ½ up

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
VLS Layout: 
Layout 1:  5 x 4 x 2 ½  (pin above bridge)
Layout 2:  4 ½ x 4 x 4 1/8 (pin below bridge)

I’ve been waiting for this ball!  The Eternity is right in between an Altered Reality and a Volatility Torque, which both had the same cover (S84R Pearl).  The Eternity has the same core numbers (but different core) as the Volatility Torque, which means it has a lower intermediate differential than the Altered Reality.  The Altered got a little too forward for me at times and the lower mid diff in the Eternity helps keep the ball a little rounder and little more continuous.   The Eternity is definitely a strong ball but the pearl part of the cover lets it get down the lane a touch.  The ‘medium’ strength asym core stays smooth and continuous.  The Eternity is a great new piece from 900 Global!

The Eternity from 900 Global is the perfect 1-2 punch.  The S84 Pearl Coverstock really likes to clear the front of the lanes well with plenty control in the midlane. I compared it to the Altered Reality and for me the Eternity was little bit cleaner and controllable. It is the perfect ball for late tournament games or low volumes
