DV8 brings #thickshell technology to the line again, this time in a Pearl version! Sporting the same Toxicity core this time wrapped in the new Toxin-SF pearl cover along with the bright Radium Green color, the Poison Pearl is sure to be hazardous to pins!

I received my new Poison Pearl a couple weeks ago, and instantly I loved the bright green color scheme! I went with my tried and true symmetric layout of 4 1/2 x 45, which is basically pin over the bridge for me. On the fresh, I was able to square up and play the track with little problem.

 Typically my home center plays very tight, so I didn't really see a ton of hook oob simply because the center is more med hvy to hvy at times. I took a trip to another center near me that normally stays more on the medium side, and immediately saw a noticeable difference in overall strength and ball reaction. And the hit and carry on this one is the same as you saw with the OG Poison, it really slings pins around, and I love that!!

Overall I cant stress enough the importance of using this piece on its intended condition which is true med to med dry. If you bowl in centers that typically cut back in the summer, or a higher friction surface, the Poison pearl is gonna be money for you!

 I feel like this ball is a great alternative to folks who struggle with lower end equipment and carry. Im one of those folks that for whatever reason has a hard time carrying with lower end equipment. This ball gives me the confidence I haven't had for those med-dryer conditions!

Please give the DV8 Poison Pearl a look for those lanes on the dryer side, you won't be disappointed!!
