If you love the VANDAL line, this is a MUST HAVE ball.  We drilled ours up 50 x 3 1/2 x 35 so that it got down lane with a lot of motion.  Even though this ball is a pearl it is a performance piece, showing no issues on the fresh OR as they break down.  This thing has LOTS of motion down lane, and hits like a tank.  You can count on annihilating the pins with this one!

The DV8 Creed is one of our newest balls and in one word…..AMAZING! It is one of the most versatile balls I have ever thrown. This asymmetrical core ball can be thrown from multiple angles, but is better on oily-medium lane conditions. For your average league bowler, you will find that the Creed is fantastic and works very well on any house shot.
For the tournament and competitive bowlers, I have thrown this ball on multiple lane conditions and this ball is so versatile, you can put multiple layouts on this ball that will work on various competitive lane conditions.

The Creed’s ball motion can be classified as very smooth and very predictable down the lane. The layout for this ball is pin down and my CG at my midline of my span and its motion its ball motion is simply incredible. I highly recommend this ball as a great reader ball for any lane condition during league or competitive play.

The DV8 Creed is one of the best balls released to date! The universal release date for the new DV8 Creed is 7/11/17. DV8….If you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling! #brunswickbowling, #dv8bowling, #radicalbowling technologies

My headline says it all. The DV8 Creed will be the first ball out of the bag for any competitive bowler that has it. I've been able to take mine and stay right on heavier oil, and I've also been able to take mine and jump left on lighter oil. The ball always seems to maintain great energy at the break point, and off the spot, it generates a great medium angle to the pocket that destroys the pins. I have always been able to get a great read off of the lanes with my Creed. The blue and black colors also set this ball apart and make it look pheonominal. This is a must have ball from DV8 Bowling. Buy one today!

DV8 Creed

I drilled my Creed 40° x 4.25 x 55. I've used it on a 43ft house shot and 45ft WTBA Mexico City. From what I see... the Creed can easily be the first ball out of your bag on a typical house pattern and used for many games. Its stronger change of direction at the break is something many of us like to see. What sets this ball apart from most is that the Creed's new core shape. With more of the mass towards the bottom of the core, it allows the ball to have a stronger motion at the break point with a much more noticeable continuous drive through the pocket. Think Vandal Destroy on steroids.
     The Creed will also work well as a step down from stronger balls, like the Pitbull and Pitbull Growl, when you need to get the ball through the heads and still want a strong asymmetrical ball motion. I really liked what I saw on the 45ft Mexico City. After 2 games with the Pitbull Growl I was able to move my feet deeper and created more angle at the break for maximum carry without worrying the ball was going to wiggle and miss the pocket.

Ball Weight: 15 lbs


Dual Angle: 60 x 4 3/4 x 70

X Hole (if there is one): No


Rev Rate: Medium , between 250-275 rpm

Ball Speed: 17-18 mph

PAP/Track: 5 1/2" over and 1/2" down


Grit: Box Finish

Type: (Matte, Polish, Sanded): Matte

The Creed is a moneymaker.  This ball is so versatile and reminds of the Vandal with its motion downlane.  Laid mine out to read the midlane a little late but produce continuation on the backend.  The Creed will need to be in everyone's arsenal and you will not be disappointed.

This ball is something special! If you liked the Grudge pearl, well the DV8 Creed is similar to that ball but much cleaner through the mid lane and a stronger backend motion to the pocket.
I drilled this ball 5 3/4 inches of my axis point with no weight hole.
Tested the ball on a 38 foot huose shot.
Lanes are HPL surface.
The first few things I noticed about this ball is how cleanly it skids through the heads and even the midlane too! But when the ball comes off the pattern, wow! This ball hooks and hits with tremendous force! I was able to stay in the track area for about a game and a half, then I had to start making small moves (2 boards right with my feet and 1 board right with my target, I am left handed) after 3 games with this ball I ended up being a total of 7 boards right of my original position and 3 boards right of my original target.
I have been able to throw this ball on a number of different patterns, anything from a fresh house shot to a broken down sport pattern. For tournaments, this ball will definitely be in my bag where ever I go.
If you are looking for a medium to heavy oil ball with some versatility, the DV8 Creed is the ball for you.

He is the new upper mid  ball at DV8, the Creed.  The Creed offer a brand new core and a brand new pearl coverstock. 

For this ball I used a 40x4 1/4x40.  On the lanes, this ball is really clean through the heads because of the pearl coverstock and is my sharpest ball on the backend.  The coverstock is strong, which makes my strongest polished ball.  Compared to my Vandal Destroy, the Creed is about 1 board stronger essentially because of the back end of the ball.    Compared to my vintage Inferno, the Creed is about 2 boards left with my eyes and one with my feet. 

Even if the ball is polished, the ball can be sanded for a sooner roll on the lane.  I did it for one of my costumer with higher ball speed and now this is his favorite ball ever. 

To conclude, if you want to have a strong pearl ball with a lot of backend, the Creed is your ball of choice.

I was looking for a ball to replace one of my favorite DV8 balls the Vandal. I picked the right ball, for me the DV8 Creed is a little earlier  than the original Vandal but has the same great motion and great hitting power. This is my go to ball of fresh patterns with Med oil, it gets down the lane nice and the compound finish makes it turn hard but not snappy which makes it easier to control my breakpoint. This is a must have in every buddy's Tournament bag!!!
Likes: good length with strong read and great hitting power

Dislikes: nothing

This is becoming one of my favorite go to balls.  The combination of core and coverstock really gives this ball a shape that should match up to most any style.  Mine is out of the box finish, 60 X 4 1/2 X 45 and just rolls beautifully.,  It gives me ease in clearing the midlane with a nice pop on the back end for hitting power.  I can use in on most anything from medium heavy to medium light oil patterns.

Really works well for me on house type conditions as it isn't oversensitive to the dry boards on the outside of the lane.  Order one of these and watch your scores go up!

The DV8 Creed is a good choice for bowlers who are looking for a versatile ball that can be used on a variety of lane conditions. The ball has a strong hook potential and a long length, which makes it a good choice for bowlers who want to get good carry on heavier oil patterns. The ball also has a backend flip reaction, which means that it will continue to hook after it hits the pins. This makes the ball a good choice for bowlers who want to strike with consistency.
