Title: Reality
Post by: BallReviews-scodaddy21 on February 11, 2021, 11:02:41 AM
The 900Global Reality high-performance bowling ball introduces the solid version of the S84 Response coverstock which offers a powerfully strong reaction even in the heaviest of oil conditions. The Reality contains the Distubance Asymmetric Core which is designed with shape in mind and fills the core space with the least amount of material while still offering the RG and Differential values that bowlers want.

Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

If you know me then you know I’m a big fan of symmetrics. It’s pretty rare that I rave over a ball with an asymmetric core but this is one of them! The 900 Global Reality is not a ball that hooks in the front part of the lane and bails down lane. It cleared the fronts with ease and continued through the pins better than most others. I compared the Reality to the Rubicon in my ball review, and the Rubicon picks up a few feet earlier and has an overall more rounded motion. I’m eager to put some shine on the Reality to see how far left I can move with it. It will be a ball that comes out of the bag directly after the Rubicon, RST X1, or Proton Physix depending on which one you have.

900 Global ignites 2021 with its release of the all new Reality. This new powerhouse is a combination of cutting-edge technology, with its Disturbance core and robust coverstock - the S84 Response Solid. The Reality is a THS bowler’s gem. Let’s take a closer look.
Being more a down-and-in player, I was impressed with how the new Disturbance core delivered. Starting on fresh oil, playing straight and looking ten (second arrow), the core rolled with serious authority yet retained an intense amount of energy that detonated at the pocket! Further, the Disturbance core gave me a strong sense of security. When I leaked a few shots right, it recovered vigorously, kicking out those flat tens. Being a lower rev player, I like how this core “stands up” and maintains a strong continuation through the pins. This Disturbance core is by far a straighter player’s best friend.
Surface for me has become an integral part of front to back ball motion and I couldn’t have asked for a more responsive cover than the S84 Solid on the Reality. The 2000 grit factory surface suited my overall game well, but I felt a bit shaky moving in beyond my comfort zone late in the night. The next night, I tweaked the surface to 1500 and I found my sweet spot with the S84 cover for the pattern. Early on I could play straight up looking at ten (second arrow) and by the third game I felt comfortable and stable at 15 (third arrow) up to 18. I found this cover provides strong traction throughout the lane without losing its potent bite off the pattern no matter where I played!
In closing, 900 Global has done an outstanding job with the all new Reality. This ball is strong yet controllable and it unleashes power where it counts! For a straighter, low rev player like me, the Reality adds conviction to your arsenal! Talk to your local pro-shop operator today. The Reality is worth it!

900 Global Reality

Coverstock: S84R Solid
Finish: 2000 Grit Abralon
Core: Disturbance Asymmetric 
RG: 2.49
Differential: 0.052
Int Diff: 0.018

Layout: 50 x 3 1/4 x 45
Tester:  PAP 5 1/2 R, 1 1/2 D

The 900 Global Reality offers a focused brand new core design with an aggressive coverstock. This specific design is intended to maximize control with more hook potential then its predecessor the 900 Global Volatility. This ball is definitely the hook monster you are looking for, but with a twist....the Reality will allow you to continue to open the lane up as transition occurs. At times, my Volatility would tend to "quit" and my next ball down wasn't quite enough. The Reality should fill that gap on longer and higher volume patterns.

You should expect a continuous, strong reaction throughout the lane. Also, 900 has kept the Int Diff lower on the Reality to achieve some length down lane so the ball as designed does not "hook at your feet" and "quit". This has been the wow factor of the Reality at recent Storm Matchmaker events.

As previous noted above, the Reality will work best on longer and higher volume patterns.  If your desire is to stay left before and after the lanes transition this ball will not disappoint. If you want the biggest hooking ball on the market today in your bag, this is the one!  Don't hesitate to try out the 900 Global Reality today.

Reality - Ball Specs
Cover Stock: S84 Response Solid

The Tour Engineered 900 Series all new Reality utilizes the incredibly strong S84 Response solid cover combined with the Disturbance Asymmetric core to give you the strongest ball in the 900 Global line. Yes, I believe its stronger and more versatile than the Volatility. I drilled my Reality pin down and was surprised how clean this high-performance ball was through fronts and how much energy it had down lane. 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.

Out of the box I loved this ball. Rolled very well. started standing normal 25 then move left as the night went on. threw 15-20 at the arrows and out to 8-10 at the break point. the time went on, YES it got a little lane shine on it...and I like it a little better! I didn't have to move so fast as the night went on. It reacted very nice! Shot a few really nice 700's so far. We know bowling here in Michigan started back up a little bit ago. But the ball is going to stay in my bag for sure!

900 Global RealityLayout: 4.5 X 3.5 X 2 Storm Vector LayoutRev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotationTesting Information: 41-foot THS (medium volume)Kegel Machine – Brunswick AnvilaneOur first review of a 900 Global ball.  We tested the 900 Global Volatility Torque (an absolute beast) but did not do a review.  I was able to win a senior tournament throwing the Volatility Torque fresh off the press.  The Reality utilizes the S84 Response solid cover with the Disturbance asymmetric core.  The cover and weight block complement each other well.  The Reality was versatile during testing.  The test bowlers were able to play multiple angles with the Reality on the house shot.  I see the Reality as a 1b tournament ball that will be used when the Storm Proton Physix is reading the lanes too soon but the oil is heavy enough that you still need a surface ball.  The Reality carried very well during testing.  Everyone watching the test session said the same thing – “This ball looks like it is going to strike every time going down the lane”.Visit your local Storm VIP Pro Shop to order yours.Continue to bowl up a Storm!#Stormnation  #900Global

Reality Review
Cover: S84 Response Solid
RG: 2.49
PSA: 0.018
PAP: 5 ½ x 1 ½ UP

This is the first 900 Global ball I have ever thrown. I have a difficult time matching up with Asymmetrical balls. I am more of a down and In player with higher ball speeds and a lower rev rate (however recently I have worked on increasing the rev rate and lowering the ball speed) I was really surprised at how much this ball hooked. I really like the ball motion and how strong it is. I drilled this OOB 60 x 3 1/4 x 45. Which puts the pin above my ring finger kicked out to the right. I spend along trying to figure out how to layout this ball and I nailed this one.  I left the cover OOB.  Reality is smooth and predictable with a strong backend motion. It is earlier than the Proton Physix but still picks up well and does not burn up and has strong continuation through the pins. I have a hard time getting Asymmetrical getting through the pins without burning up and getting the right shape. I can move in with this ball and trust the ball will turn the corner. I have found the strong core/cover ball for the longer heavier oil patterns. This ball is a winner!

Can you call it a benchmark ball, I do. First ball out of the bag in leagues and it will show me if I need to ball down. If you can usw a word like READABILITY this is the definition of this ball. Drilled with new standard pin up layout I see great skid in front with that READABILITY coming off the pattern.
Strongest ball I have that can be used entirely in one set provided you chase the oil in and depending on the volume. I have as of this review 25+ games bowled on it. No surface change needed just typical labe shine and cleaning after each use.

Being a low rev bowler at my age (58) speed matched, it's a pleasure to be able to use a high flaring ball without the DOA hits. The Reality carry percentage is high as it rolls consistently through the pin deck. The 2000 Abralon cover should take well if needed.

This a ball taylormade for all styles searching for a high flaring ball that only looks good but scores well too.
