Watch out, here comes a Trouble Maker! Due to the growing number of two-handed and no-thumb hole bowlers, DV8 developed a bowling ball for them. Any bowler can effectively use the DV8 Trouble Maker but the two-handers and no-thumb bowlers will particularly benefit from the technology built into this ball. The Dualistic core was designed so that the two finger holes hit designated areas of the core. This results in different numbers than the typical core shape. This core is paired with the proven Inciter Max Continuation Hybrid coverstock to produce a strong overall hook on medium to heavy oil conditions.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): House and Sport


I am not a two (2) handed bowler, but this ball is really amazing! I drilled this one a bit differently than my traditional layout. I have scuffed the surface to 1500 and use this ball during the start of league or even during early transition on a tournament pattern. With a 45 x 5.5 x 40 layout, this ball is very controllable with a strong continuation backend motion. I can only imagine what this ball looks like with my regular layout. Although a hybrid, this ball can act as a very good benchmark ball.

I picked up this ball because I have a thumb injury and this was recommended for those who play without the thumbhole. I like how it gives me the steady hook even in heavy oil lanes. I can get a consistent release which I am really happy with. I would recommend this ball to players who do not use thumbholes.
None so far.

I think the only downside to this type of ball is that it is not that difficult to throw. You will have to relax your thumb during the throw. But overall, I really like it because the drawback is insignificant. connections game
