12 lbs core
« on: October 31, 2013, 10:59:06 PM »
Are the cores on DV8 balls the same for 12 lbs as they are for 15 lbs?  Many manufacturers say that their lighter balls have a 'generic' core, but I don't see that DV8 mentions that anywhere in their info.

I believe they use a different core as well for lighter weight balls. One manufacture that I know for sure uses same core in 12 lb balls is Motiv. Even for them I can't say for sure whether that is true across the spectrum of their offerings. (Translation: not entirely sure about Ascent balls).
Current bag:
DV8 Turmoil 2 Pearl
Radical Squatch hybrid
Motiv Forza GT
Hammer Black Widow Gold
DV8 Vandal
DV8 Creed Rebellion

Thanks for the info about Motiv.  I know the Ebonite Cyclone advertises it has the same core from 10-16 lbs.  I'm still hoping that a DV8 staffer can say for sure.  I'm interested in a Misfit ball.
