900 Global Eternity PI – WWRD 9/22/2023
Cover: Reserve Blend 901 Solid Reactive
Core:  Epoch Asymmetric
RG: 2.49
RG. Diff.: 0.050
Finish: 2000 Grit Abralon

900 Global’s new Eternity PI is a Solid Asymmetrical piece that is good for 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, CG kicked out 1” from the palm, and the Mass Bias 1/2” to the Right of the Thumb.  Out of Box ball motion started early in the mids with a smooth backend motion.  I compared this to Reality.  Reality (Asym) was a few boards right but with a more continuous backend motion than the PI.

The Eternity PI is the newest edition in 900 Global’s 900 line this year. With the proven Epoch core, the PI is wrapped in the new Reserve Blend 901 coverstock which is slightly cleaner and more responsive downlane than the successful Reality. I drilled my Eternity PI 4.75x4x4.25 which is the same layout that is on my Clone and Reality. The Eternity PI fits in between the Reality and the Clone. It is 3-4ft cleaner and angular than the Reality, but not as clean and angular as the Clone at the same surface. The PI is going to be a good piece when the Reality is too early but a big asymmetric ball is still needed. Go pick yours up at your Local Storm VIP Proshop today!

This ball is STRONG!!! When there is a heavy volume of oil this is the ball for you.  This ball reminds me a lot of the Super Nova when it comes to ball motion.  The strong core and cover combo makes this ball grab the lane early but still stores enough energy to drive through the pins with power.  I did notice this ball lane shines up quite quickly so you may want to adjust the cover if you’re looking to keep the ball rolling early.

Review
The 900 Global Eternity Pi utilizes the Reserve Blend 901 solid cover combined with the Epoch Asymmetric Core to give you the strongest ball in the 900 Global line. Yes, I believe its stronger than the Reality. I drilled my Eternity Pi pin up, which enable the ball to roll through the fronts with a lot of energy coming off the break point and going through pins. I tested this ball on 44 feet typical house pattern. As a mid to low rev player, I see this ball being my first choice on heavy oil patterns. I was able to play outside five, the track area, and deep inside without any loss of ball reaction or pin carry. 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.

This is one of those asymmetric's you will want in your bag. Strong core combined with a cleaner cover, the PI will provide plenty of read and continuation for those medium to higher volume patterns. The PI sits on the cleaner side versus the Gem and DNA which is a great option if you're looking for the stronger ball without having such an early read on the lane.  I drilled mine pin down for the video and was able to keep may angles both closed and open which showed the versatility of the ball. I already drilled another one of with a pin up layout which I plan to throw to get deeper on the lane for the ball to pick up sooner and play more left to right.

Core: Epoch Asymmetric
RG: 2.49   Differential: .050 (15 lbs)   PSA: .014
Layout: 4 ¾ x 5 x 3
PAP: 6" Right, 1 3/8" Up
Axis Tilt: 16°
Rotation: 51°
Rev Rate: 450-500
Speed: 17-18 mph

The Eternity Pi is the newest powerhouse option for heavy oil performance in the 900 Global lineup. The Reserve Blend 901 Solid Cover was specifically designed to provide bowlers with a different look when compared to the S84 Response and when combined with the Epoch Asymmetric Core, this new offering will give you a heavy oil ball with a completely different motion than the still very popular Reality. The Eternity Pi gave me an excellent look sliding on 23, looking 13 at the arrows with my breakpoint around 8-9. When compared to the Reality, I was able to stand and look in the same place, but the Pi was cleaner through the fronts and had more down lane motion. The Reality has been a staple in my bag for the past two seasons and I can see the Pi being an excellent compliment to it. Stop by your local Storm VIP pro shop to check it out! Available on September 22nd.

The all new Eternity Pi is a great ball for players who like a strong continuous motion with a symmetric core. Typically, I do not have a lot of success with bigger asymmetric bowling balls, however, this ball seems to dance the fine line between strong, early motion and downlane shape. Even when you move left with this ball it still continues through the pins where usually strong asymmetric balls like this lock up. I have been able to see a large amount of success from a variety of people with this ball and I have no doubt there will be tons of success to come! Go out and get yours today!

Well, well, well.....Do you need a ball for heavy oil? Wow this ball is amazing! Right out of the box, on a house shot, 740. You could tell it read the mid lane very well. I had to make sure I kept the speed up...I'm 50 lol. Stood 28 to start off and threw 16-17 at the arrows. Then tried to get it out to around 7-8 at the break point, and yeah it hooks! It was nice seeing a solid Asymmetric ball read the back ends like this ball does! 900 Global did it with this ball! Amazed! I finished the 3rd game standing 32 and looking at 20-21. The new 901 cover with the Epoch Asymmetric Core. This ball sums it up. All I can say is you have to make sure you have enough mid lane oil for this ball. It has more back end then the Reality. Two words for this ball "Oil Friendly"  ;)

900 Global has struck gold with the release of the Eternity Pi. And for a straighter, low-rev player like me, everything from the Reserve Blend 901 Solid Reactive Coverstock to the proven Epoch core makes the Eternity Pi a phenomenal new release by 900 Global. So, let's take a closer look at what's behind the success of the Eternity Pi.

900 Global developed the Epoch Core in the original Eternity, and it is a well-designed muscular asymmetric core. It was crafted in a way to put more mass in the center of the core, allowing for a stronger and more pronounced mid-lane motion without losing the strong torque off the pattern we straighter players depend on. I loved how the Epoch core revs briskly in the mid-lane and retains a crisp, decisive turn off the pattern. And unlike other big asymmetric cores that tend to be lethargic going down the lane, the Epoch Core builds an intense amount of energy that unleashes its destruction through the pins. So, if you're a straighter low-rev player like me, the Epoch Core is the powerhouse you are looking for. Lastly, you can depend on the Epoch core to get you to the pocket and deliver striking results when you need to count on it most under those pressure situations!

The Reserve Blend 901 Solid Reactive coverstock is ideal for a straighter player like me. And the out-of-the-box 2000-grit Abralon surface was a perfect match for my game! I loved the gritty attack the 901 Reserve Blend had in the front part of the lane while still having a smoothly blended traction in the mid-lane. And the best part of what I saw with the Reserve Blend 901 was the forgiveness it provided!

I loved how the Reserve Blend 901's forgiving mid-lane motion brought my Eternity Pi back to the pocket, even when I leaked one far right. And when I tugged one inside, I loved how the 901 Reserve Blend Solid stayed consistent as it cut through the heavy oil in the center of the lane. Lastly, when you are trying to get around those high-rev urethane players or navigating those late-night broken-down conditions, you can trust the Reserve Blend 901 Solid Reactive coverstock to blend the conditions. Allowing you to keep you rolling you're A-game all night long!

So, in conclusion, 900 Global has knocked one out of the park with the Eternity Pi. The Eternity Pi is a brilliantly crafted 900 Global release certain to bring excellent results to any straighter, low-rev player like me. So, stop in your local Storm VIP Pro Shop today and have your Eternity Pi drilled up and ready for tonight's league or this weekend's tournament because the Eternity Pi is ready to roll and deliver! Great job, 900 Global! That’s striking worldwide!

Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the 900 Global Eternity Pi.

In 14 pounds this ball is wrapped in Reserve Blend 901 Solid Cover and comes with a 2000 grit finish with the Epoch Asymmetric Core from the original Eternity and has an RG of 2.51, Diff of .044, and a PSA of .011.

The layout for this ball is 4.5x4x2.5

The all-new Pi is gonna be for anyone who likes that strong continuous “chuggy” motion. I never threw the original Eternity but that was a shiny ball that gave a different look as it used the previous S84 Response cover. The Pi has the 901 solid cover and with the 2000 grit will have a larger footprint on the lane and dig in the oil. I find this ball being first out of my bag and in league, I can stay in it for about two games before having to go to something like the Clone or Blackout. This ball will be a hit on the tournament side as well. It is a great cover/core balance in an Asym ball.

900 Global Eternity Pi Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The newest addition to the 900 batch line at 900 Global is the Eternity Pi.  After having a ton of success with the original Eternity, I was excited to see a solid version be created.  The Pi features the Reserve Blend 901 cover and the Epoch asymmetrical core, producing one of the strongest balls I’ve ever thrown.  This monster flares a ton, never stops going through the pins, and rolls great.  With an RG of 2.49, differential of .050, and PSA of .014, you can bet this will be the strongest ball in your bag.

I’ve drilled one so far and love it.  The one I drilled is mapped out as 5 x 3.5 x 70.  This puts the pin below my bridge and the mass bias just to the right of my thumb.  Out of the box, the Pi didn’t make it to the arrows before it started to change direction, so I put it on the spinner with water and a 4000 pad.  That made a huge difference.  It created length, stored more energy, and went through the pins great.  If I know I’m going to bowl on a pattern with a good amount of volume, the Pi is in my bag.  It’s been a great compliment and much different than my Zen Gold Label and Xponent. 

If you need to add a super strong, heavy rolling ball to your bag, the Eternity Pi from 900 Global should be the next ball you drill.

The Eternity Pi features an all new solid cover that provides a step up from the original pearl Eternity. While the original Eternity was a pearl, it was smooth, heavy rolling and controllable. The Pi provides that same familiar shape, but in a package that is better suited for heavy oil and fresh lanes. The Pi keeps its axis surprisingly well, providing a nice compliment to the other solid asym in our line that is slightly cleaner and more continuous than the Gem or Reality. If you are slightly rev dominant or looking for a solid asym that is a bit more responsive than similar pieces in our line,  the Pi is the ball for you!

Review:
The 900 Global Eternity Pi features a crafted cover design that is slightly cleaner than the S84 Response cover that was featured on the Reality. In addition, S84 was featured on the Eternity as well. This change will differentiate reaction from your Reality and other big asym balls by providing extra length in your solid coverstocks.

At recent MatchMaker events I worked showed the Eternity Pi is a top choice for bowlers. For my review I tested the ball on two fresh house shots at two different centers along with the Reality. The Eternity Pi is a nice compliment to your bigger asym balls by giving you that touch of length I noted above. I will also say I feel the Eternity Pi is better than the Eternity due to the cover being a nice upgrade. For me, at times, the Eternity would burn up a touch earlier than anticipated even with it having a pearl coverstock.

I am most impressed that the ball easily glides through the front part of the lane and was very balanced in terms of hook off the spot and entering the roll phase. Many times you'll see asyms "quit" and roll weaker off the spot then we like to see. The Eternity Pi does not do that and should provide a nice range of angles to attack the pocket.

For me, the Eternity Pi may require a small surface up adjustment on the two house patterns I tested it on. This is simply due to my slower ball speed so any help through the front part of the lane generally helps me out. However, for most players the Eternity Pi will work with the OOB finish provided.  Be sure to check out the 900 Global Eternity Pi today.

Review:
 This ball took me a bit to get comfortable with, but the more I get a feel for the motion and the way it reads the lane the more I like it.  The first time I rolled the PI was on a dryer house shot. The ball read too early and did not do much down lane because it used too much energy early.  The next outing was on a beat up messy shot and only weak smooth equipment worked. Then I found the right condition at another house where I bowl. This center prides itself on shot making and not giving you an easy condition. The pattern is a modified house shot and feels more like a sport pattern. I tried to Eternity PI and it was just what I needed. The gritty 2000 surface overcame the slick heads and I was able to swing the ball to a spot and this power house came back and drove hard through the pins. Once I saw the area this muscular ball gave me my arm swing loosened up and scoring was easy on this tough pattern. This ball fits just under my Original Gem and is stronger than my Phase 2. The Eternity PI has a heavy roll and on the right condition it will give you confidence and hit.

Summary:
The Eternity PI is a good looking strong ball.
This Ball needs head oil for best results.
The Eternity PI will be great on heavy oiled difficult patterns.
