COMMENTS:
The Intimidator Pearl was a much needed addition to the DV8 line. This ball bridges the gap nicely between balls like the Intimidator Solid and the Verge line. The Inciter Pearl cover is strong enough to handle heavier volumes, and is one of the quickest response covers ive seen from DV8 in a long time! It was actually so quick I had to hit it lightly with a 2000 pad to slow it down just a tad.

I love the fact the the IP is strong enough to start a series with, and just chase the shot left as it breaks down. I see it being useable on most heavier volume house shots all the way to medium type conditions provided you have decent ball speed.

Overall, this was a very much needed piece in the DV8 lineup. The ability to have that stronger pearl with shape downlane is something we have needed for sometime in my opinion! If your looking for that stronger pearl you can open up the lanes with, the Intimidator Pearl is your choice!
