To me this ball is Pure aggression. When you need that ball to read the lanes, and make your moves early in blocks. This is the ball. I drilled my Corrupt pin below the bridge to tame down the aggression and it still is a Beast when it clears the heads. This ball is the first out of my bag during league and tournament play.

If you are looking for a ball with a monster back end motion this is the ball. This ball skids threw the heads and makes a violent  turn at the end of the pattern. On a typical house shot a bowler can not throw it to far right without the fear it will get back. This ball will come back and it will get around the corner and hit the pins like a truck. On heavier oil patterns this ball will still make the turn and drive threw the pins. DV8 has hit a homerun with this ball.

Thug Corrupt
By: Bryan Bannach DV8 Regional Staff Member
DV8 describes the Thug Corrupt’s performance as Maximum Hook with Maximum Flip.
I have struggled lately being able to chase my asymmetric equipment left.  Once I get to a certain point I have to put my asymmetrics away because the will no longer make the corner.  I was hoping the Thug Corrupt would help that. 
I choose a layout of 55x5x30 for my Thug Corrupt, which in the past has given me decent length with a stronger backend.
The Thug Corrupt is much stronger than the original Thug, and provides a different motion than the Thug Unruly.  Compared to the original Thug, the Thug Corrupt is a solid 6-4 boards stronger.  It picks up the mid lane much stronger and finishes stronger on the backend.  Compared to the Unruly the Corrupt is much cleaner and more angular.  Overall strength is comparable, but the motion and shape is different. 
I think the Thug Corrupt is the ball that most people look for on a Typical House Shot.  It provides that “stand left, throw right” motion that many bowlers look for on a Typical House Shot.  But it is also clean enough that a stroker would be able to stay right with it and get the ball down the lane.

Hello my name is Kyle Metz Brunswick/DV8/Radical Advisory Staff member.  I drilled my Thug Corrupt with one of my favorite layouts 65x5 1/4x50.  That is the same layout that I used in my Thug Unruly.  The Corrupt has  the brand new Composite coverstock. The result that i saw was a much more aggressive down lane ball motion than I've seen from any DV8 ball to date. I tried the Corrupt on a 44' WTBA London pattern and saw more than enough backed motion on this tight pattern and hard lane surface. On a 40' house pattern this ball is clean through the fronts and midlane with an extremely angular backend motion go kick out those corner pin.  The thing that i like the most is how long I can continue to use this ball and it does not burn up when oil begins to deplete.  I have been a big fan of all of the balls in the Thug line of bowling balls from DV8, and this one is the best one yet.

 The Thug Corrupt is the third ball in the line. This Thug Corrupt offers an all new Composite Hybrid cover wrapped around the low RG asymmetric Thug core. The box finish is 500/4000 Siaair. I drilled mine with my favorite, 60x4-5/8x30 layout. During the summer, I run a sport shot league and was excited to see how it rolled. Unfortunately, we were on medium length patterns; 2011-12 Chameleon (39ft) and U.S. Open (40ft). I also tested it on our 43ft heavier volume THS.

On the fresh Chameleon and U.S. Open patterns, the Corrupt forced me a little deeper than I would normally like to start. Even with the 4000 Siaair finish, it was reading the mids very hard. I did see some success on these patterns after a game or so. I was able to stand 27 and had to be a little firmer with my speed. I was great as long as I hit the 7/8 board around 40ft. If I missed a board in, the ball was just too strong. I'm sure a surface change, and/or different layout, would allow me to be more comfortable on these patterns. Honestly, what's the point? This ball is designed for heavier/longer patterns.

On our 43ft THS, the Corrupt was strong and consistent. Compared to the Thug and Thug Unruly, this ball is  strong in the mids and significantly stronger when it sees friction . It wasn't as sensitive to the heavier volume as the Thug. Even at the same 500/4000 finish, the Corrupt read the midlane a few feet earlier and provided a stronger backend motion. I took the Corrupt to 500/2000 to compare it to my Unruly. The Unruly was strong in the midlane with a smooth, arcing shape throughout the lane. With the surface change the new Corrupt was stronger overall. The Corrupt picked up in the midlane just like the Unruly but retained its backend shape and continuation. Being a lefty, I often run into trouble moving deeper on longer formats. The heads get beat up fast and strong balls like the Unruly struggle to get through without reading early. The Corrupt will allow me to keep this ball in my hands on the longer patterns when I need to move in, but still need a stronger asymmetric motion with a little surface on it.

The Thug and Thug Unruly were a huge hit in our center last year. They out sold all other balls in our pro shop. I expect the new Corrupt to be an even bigger success. The new Composite cover will matchup perfectly with a wide variety of bowlers. Being able to adjust the surface and not loose any backend reaction is HUGE! Especially on longer/tighter tournament patterns.

I drilled my Corrupt with my favorite 5x4x3 drilling. Same drilling I have on my Thug Unruly. I was surprised by how clean this ball is since I tend to struggle with the big hook balls on our medium volume house shot. Ball makes a strong mid lane move with big backend. Its a full arrow stronger than my Unruly and I love the ball motion this new cover stock makes. Ball hits a ton! Will fit into my bag nicely!

My name is Doug Cutler and I am a DV8 Regional Staffer and I throw around 15-16mph.  The Drilling on my first Thug Corrupt i put the pin above my ring finger and kicked the CG out just a little. I left the surface the out of the box. The Thug Corrupt is much stronger than the original Thug, and provides a different motion than the Thug Unruly.  Compared to the original Thug, the Thug Corrupt is a solid 4-6 boards stronger.  It picks up the mid lane much stronger and finishes stronger on the backend.  Compared to the Unruly the Corrupt is much cleaner and more angular.  Overall strength is comparable, but the motion and shape is different.  I think the Thug Corrupt is the ball that most people look for on a Typical House Shot.  It provides that “stand left, throw right” motion that many bowlers look for on a Typical House Shot.  But it is also clean enough that a stroker would be able to stay right with it and get the ball down the lane.  I can believe how much stronger the Thug Corrupt is to the Thug Unruly, which the Thug Unruly was the most aggressive ball on the market last year.  I am going to get another Thug Corrupt and really Polish it so I can use it on more than just Heavy Oil Patterns. I have used the Thug Corrupt on the Shark Pattern.  The Thug corrupt is a ball that you really need in your bag when you are bowling on Heavy Oil Patterns.  DV8 has done a great Job with this Ball and it is going to be a very popular ball this year and I will have at least 2 of these in my Bag.

SO here are some thoughts about the newest thug, the thug corrupt.
I drilled my corrupt 70* 4.5 * 40 and left he ball out of box surface.
The new hybrid composite cover is a nice addition the the thug core. This ball is more usable than my unruly was. The unruly was just so much ball I needed some real oil to use it. This thug is a few boards weaker for me than the unruly was overall.
The biggest difference to me is this thug starts about 3-5 feet later down lane and changes direction quite a bit harder. This ball has more of a sudden move down lane than the unruly did. Overall its a really strong piece that still needs some oil. A fresh house shot should do just fine.

Ive also played around with the surface and if you need some more length polishing it wont hurt it a bit. When I polished it I moved about an arrow right and I was good to go. If you want something to throw when there is more friction I would recommend a vandal or taunt.

thanks!

My Name is Doug Cutler and I a DV8 Regional Staffer. This is my second review on this awesome Thug Corrupt.  I have had quit a few great comments on this ball and the ball reaction and hitting power. The biggest difference to me is this thug starts about 3-5 feet later down lane and changes direction quite a bit harder. This ball has more of a sudden move down lane than the unruly did. Overall its a really strong piece that still needs some oil. A fresh house shot should do just fine. Ive also played around with the surface and if you need some more length polishing it wont hurt it a bit. When I polished it I moved about an arrow Left and I was good to go. If you want something to throw when there is more friction I would recommend a vandal or taunt. If you have not purchased a Thug Corrupt yet I promise you will not be disappointed so get to your local pro shop and purchase one today! #dv8thugcorrupt #dv8bowling #tonightwebowl

The DV8 Thug Corrupt is the ball for you if you are looking for aggressive back end motion. It gets through the front of the lane extremely clean then makes a huge move toward the pocket. The ball drives through the pins incredibly well, therefore eliminating many weak hit spares such as a 10 or 7 pin. The clean roll through the front of the lane makes the ball very easy to adjust with during the transitions. This allows me to keep it in my hand for longer periods of time. This is another great release from DV8.

The Thug Corrupt is a amazing ball! I drilled mine 50x4x60 and left it box finish. This ball is like the Unruly but, hooks more in the mid lane and keeps hooking!  It is clean down lane and makes a very powerful motion into the pocket. The Corrupt is great for heavy oil conditions. If you need a ball for those days where you can’t get the ball to hook look no further! The ball is great up the boards or for the power player moving in and opening the lane up. If you liked the Unruly you’re going to love the Corrupt get yours today!

Thug Corrupt
I have thrown my Thug Corrupt for a few weeks now. I used a layout on this ball which drilled my ring finger hole through the pin. This ball gets into a roll early and doesn’t seem to ever stop as it goes through the pins. The Thug Corrupt is a great ball for tougher conditions when you don’t want a skid-flip reaction.
