COMMENTS

 

 

 

The Misfit is so much more than an entry level ball.  While it is listed as the entry level ball for the DV8 brand, this ball performs better than many mid-range balls I have thrown from other companies.  The ball packs an abundance of performance.  My final Misfit was drilled up to be used when the lanes were very burned up at the end of a tournament day.  We hit the OOB finish with Brunswick Control it, just to try and kill the reaction as much as we could.  This ball performs exactly as designed.   It gets down the lane even on the lightest of volumes, and makes a smooth controlled reaction on the backend.  However, at times there is a slight “jump” at the breakpoint.  Usually when I try and drill a ball weaker I have a hard time carrying corner pins because of the weak reaction, but the Misfit has no problem rolling through the pins and generates plenty of carry.

 

 

 

Likes: Very easy length, with smooth controlled reaction.

 

 

 

Dislikes: The tendency to jump off the spot from time to time.

Likes:  I have this ball drilled with the pin above the bridge and the CG kicked out a little.  I decided to drop weight and wanted to get this as my first 14 lbs ball.  I've been able to throw it 3 times now.  I must say this ball is amazing.  I can't believe for the $70 I paid for this thing new how much it out performs any of my 16 lbs stuff.  I can play just about any were I want and as long as I don't throw a bad shot it finds a way to the pocket.  I would highly recommend this ball for anyones arsenal.  In my actual league play I've gone 638 and 650 with 4 of the 6 games 219 or higher.  My average is currently about 190.


Dislikes: From time to time this ball just seems to jump, of course that could be the bowler or the lanes.

COMMENTS

Likes: Gets a lot of length of it. Very controllable backend reaction.

Dislikes: None

For being an entry level, low end ball, you get more than your money's worth out of it. It has allowed me to get a lot of length, and still have a nice bang type reaction. It doesn't really overreact for me with the drilling that I have had on it, even when the lanes get really beat up and burnt. It has a great length, and a very smooth, yet strong, reaction on the backend.
