Title: The Look
Post by: Ballreviews on June 11, 2012, 09:48:17 AM

- Coverstock: S75 Reactive
- Color: Blue/Orange Hybrid All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown.
- Finish: NEAT (4000 Grit)- a new Natural Engineered Abrasive Technology that offers both enhanced aesthetics and surface topography on the bowling ball. As opposed to conventional abrasives on the market, “NEAT” has a multi-layer uniformed placement of abrasive structures that allows for superior surface area contact, which yields a more consistent surface across the entire bowling ball.
- A few tiny pit holes in the cover stock of the ball are normal
- Core Type: Asymmetric
- RG: 16#-2.534, 15#-2.551, 14#-2.570
- RG: Diff 16#-0.050, 15#-0.050, 14#-0.050
- Description: This great looking hybrid coverstock beauty will give you “The Look” on conditions that demand a strong backend reaction. The Look combines a High Rg Asymmetric core with our ever popular S75 Hybrid Coverstock with soaker additive. "The Look" is finished with a NEAT (4,000 grit) finish.

I drilled this ball the same as my original nuts, and it cleaner and stronger in the backend with the coverstock being an s75 a must for every bowler, this ball could be your benchmark ball

The look, cool name and good color scheme.  Sidebar story, I have been in the pro shop biz for 11 years, and have yet to see a bad ball with orange/blue colors.  Remember the Storm Eraser?  Ball was awesome, what about the original Virtual Gravity?  Yep, orange and blue.  This ball is so sweet, you may have to schedule another trip to the dentist.  All the staffers so far have loved this one, and I was no different.  I used a weaker layout (as I do with almost all my equipment) and put a small balance hole on my pap to get the ball to pick up sooner.  This ball is gets down lane effortlessly. Do not be afraid to rough up the surface a bit.  Also, one staffer who did not like the ball laid it out really strong, the consensus was to use a weaker cg and mb to keep the ball from revving up and quitting.  Overall, this is a great first ball out of the bag and will work great on a large variety of patterns.

Love this ball! Not really considered a benchmark ball to me like the Columbia 300 Bechmark, but a huge upgrade from the Ebonite Nitro and Nitro/R. Recommended by Missy Parkin herself! Shot a 250 game today with it!

#15 The Look
axis point 3 5/8"
tweener, 15mph
Lane Conditions - THS, Sport & Kegel Challenge
Lane Surface - Synthetic, AMF, Brunswick
Surface of bowling ball: Factory/Box
What grit was the surface of the ball? T pad
Likes: Where has this been??!!
Dislikes: I needed it sooner!!

The S75, BEST ball I've had, period!  I still have it, wanting more.  Now I have it again with the Look!  Drilled this one exactly like my 1st S75 4 x 4 no weight hole, cg right in palm.  The Look with that wonderful soaker cover gives me a ton midlane and unleashes a powerful backend!  I can't say enough here at how versatile this cover is meaning I can throw it on lighter medium to heavy oil.  It just flat out performs.  Carry seems excellent, very arc angular kept pins low.  It seems as if this core makes it a touch flippy as compared to S75.  Other than that you have what all of us 900 Global fans have been begging for in this nugget!  I did try it with an A pad and it became a beast too much for THS, real nice on Kegel Route 66.  Thank you 900 Global for bringing back one of the best!

Length:41ft & 43ft


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):house pattern & London Pattern

Need a ball that will read the heavy oil in the front part of the lane, but yet give you a nice change of direction on the back? Well "look" no further, "the Look" is the ball you will want. A great core to cover combination of 900 Globals S75 coverstock and nuts core, will give you the look you are searching for. This ball retains enough energy and makes a great move on the back of the lane. I have used this on 41ft house pattern and 43ft london pattern. I had great success throwing it on house pattern and also on London pattern after lanes were broken down a little bit. Higher rev rates though could start with this ball right off the start on fresh sport patterns that have higher volumes of oil in the middle. This ball would be a welcome addition to your arsenal for this fall. My PAP is 5 15/16 by 5/16 up and my layout I used for this ball is 55 degrees by 5IN by 40 degrees.

Length: 40-43


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS, Sport & PBA


Likes: Comes off the end of the pattern real smooth and continuous

Dislikes: None

Pin to CG: 2"
Top Weight: 3.25
Ball Weight: 15
Rev Rate: 350
Ball Speed: 15.6

Great core/cover combination.  I have two of them with the first one being pin up between my fingers at 4.5" from my PAP and the CG at 60 degrees and above my midline.  Great layout for THS or some of the medium length sport & PBA patterns as it doesn't read too soon and provides a nice "pop" at the backend.  The second one I drilled with the pin down under my fingers with the pin at 4" from my PAP and the CG still at 60 degrees but I used a pin to CG of about 2.75" on this one putting the CG down around my thumb.  Great layout for longer/heavier volume patterns as this layout for me revs up much sooner without sacrificing its drive and continuation thru the pins.

The look is a great ball for when you need to open up the lane or as you make your progression deeper and find yourself leaving corner pins the look gives you the entry angle you need to get that corner pin to kick out

This ball looks great with its orange and blue colors. I drilled it like the original nuts this ball is cleaner through the heads and much stronger at the back end. This is a great first ball out of the bag and will work great on a large variety of patterns. Don't be afraid to rough up the surface a bit, for the longer patterns the ball will still finish hard at the backend. This is one of my favorite balls.

If I was not sidelined with an injury right now this ball would be the first one out of the bag!  I had a chance to use it on a couple of sport shots over the summer and then your typical house shot.  I drilled the Look with the pin over the ring finger (4 1/4" from my pap) about 70 degrees.  I like the angularity of the ball especially when you need to open up the lane.

the look
   this was the third bowling ball i drilled by 900 and i can say i was pleasantly supprised .. i drilled it 50 by 60 with a small hole in the p 3 position drilled 2 inches deep in both fingers to balance it out and what i got was stability it hit like  TRUCK.. but i could read it all the way first time out the gate in league i shot 277 ... the impressive thing about this ball was the way it stood up in the mid lane no jerky jerky motion down the lane but more than strong enough to carry the pins from inside angles ... the other thing that was great about it is it didn't over react when or if i hit the friction early ...immediately i wanted to drill another one weaker to see if i could get it to retain better for later blocks but suprise suprise here comes the dirty look ...

Likes:wow basically i love the versatility  and power this ball will always show me the pocket and its up to me to figure out how to carry ... i can see this as a bench mark ball or a grind out ball for me especially if i get more than one ...

with the amount of forwad roll i create it was a must for me to chase the oil ...

The Look is the replacement to The Nuts line. I drilled mine Pin up 5” from P.A.P. and kicked the MB out at 55 degrees. This ball is extremely strong in the back end. On a pattern with fresh back ends this ball will even out hook my Freight Train. This is my go to ball when I have to move in and open up the lane. The core/cover combo is a great compliment. Clean through the front, good mid lane read and insane backed! What more could a bowler ask for…

This has quickly became my benchmark ball. Drilled mine 5 x 4 which placed the pin above the ring finger. Ball had 3.5 oz of top weight and 2.5" pin. While it is a skid flip reaction the motion is more of a strong arc and has worked on a variety of conditions from house shots to Scorpion. Excellent carry and as I said versatility. This has to be one of the top releases by 900 this year.

The Look

Layout: 55x5x45

Cover Stock: Box

I prefer to leave coverstocks OOB for review purposes.

The Look has easy length through the front part of the lane and starts picking up roll in the pattern. OOB it isn't much skid/flip as much as skid/roll. I see it for the heavier side of mediums.

The versatility the look offers is tremendous for a ball on the market today. Even OOB it has plenty of recovery from deep angles without sacrificing drive once it reaches the pins. Strokers will more than likely find it to be a benchmark ball, tweeners will see the Look as a ball that moves enough to cover most heavier patterns. Crankers will have to add some polish to the coverstock to have enough length to keep it in play. The coverstock is very versatile based on the change you make. Polish will get The Look to corner more than almost any ball out there today. Just lowering the grit to an E pad will get the Look to start up enough to roll through heavier volumes. One extreme plus to this coverstock when you use a lower grit it will still corner and save energy down lane.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions on The Look.
