Out maneuver your competition with the 900Global Tactical Ops bowling ball. The S72 Pearl coverstock offers the most length in 900Globals Prefferred Line.

The Tactical Ops core and coverstock combination generates a significant skid/flip reaction on medium to heavy oiled lanes.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


Clean with Skid/Flip reaction

The Tactical Ops is the sister to the Covert Ops! It is super clean and has a drastic change of direction compared to the Covert.  It provides a very similar look to what the Black Ops offered.  When the Covert seems to labor a bit on the back end then this is the ball you want to turn too.  This ball will allow you to be cleaner through the heads and still maintain the needed hitting power to carry.  The ball just does not quit. It is a stronger version of the Black Ops motion due to the S72 Cover.  This will be a go to ball when I need to open up the lane and still want the needed hitting power this ball provides.

The Tactical Ops
      A medium, medium heavy skid flip ball, got mine drilled 60 x4 x40
If you like to stay in your comfort zone longer without moving too much,
the Tactical Ops will keep you there. The Tactical Ops is perfect for fresh
oil, can be your first ball out of the bag. It will handle most conditions with
speed adjustments. This ball has great recovery from most angles, Iíve played
it outside, inside, and in the track area and it flips back from all. Make this your

The Tactical Ops features a new S72 coverstock that has bowlers enthusiastic about the skid/flip reaction of this ball.  This one is truly for league night where you want to open up the lane and create big angles.  This ball is ready to go out of your bag. I was most impressed with the hitting power of this ball on a 42' THS pattern. You'll be hearing alot about the Tactical Ops taking out pins this year. Buy one today!

If you like the Black Ops youíre going to Love the Tactical Ops. Even though itís a pearl the Tactical Ops has a stronger cover S72 and is more angular than the Black Ops. This ball is very clean through the front of lane pattern with a great reaction on the backend. My ball is drilled with the pin above the bridge with the cg kicked to the right, and no weight hole. This ball will have great success on house and tournament patterns. Ball was tested on a THS 41 feet. This is a great ball to have in your bag, get one today.

My ball review videos are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite.

The Tactical Ops.... can't get over how good this ball is. Definitely a must have in your arsenal. With the S72 Pearl cover and Break Asymmetrical core combo.. the Tactical is very clean through the heads and drastic response to friction with tons of hitting power. There's almost no place this ball wont recover from. You can use this on many of different conditions and as the pattern breaks down with minor adjustments. If your looking for a pearl version of the covert ops.... this is what your looking for.

Review: The 900 Global Tactical Ops is a strong asymmetrical pearl piece that offers good length through the heads, great midlane read, and a smoother backend reaction, for a pearl ball. Itís great for when your stronger asymmetrical balls like the Inception, the Black Ops, or Continuum start to roll too early, and you need a little bit more length, but not the booming backend. Itís been a great 1-2 punch for me so far with my Black Ops. Itís predictable, and it carries extremely well. The color really pops as well! Itís a great piece to have in the arsenal to tackle medium-oil conditions. The surface takes adjustments well, too.
