Excellent video.  I guess I just don't understand the purpose of the Endless Nightmare.  Sure, you are getting 3-5 boards more movement when compared to the Brutal.  However, you could also make a very minor change in ball speed with the Brutal and get the same amount of movement on the lane.  RG and Diff. between the two are the same.  Core is the same.  Only difference is Class 9 vs. Class 8 coverstock.  It would be nice to see DV8 release an asymmetrical Pro-line "monster" pearl.  I have the original Marauder, but haven't really done much with it...kind of weak overall.  DV8 could really use an ultra-strong pearl in their line-up.

Based on this video, as soon as I saw the Endless reaction I immediately thought of my Ebonite Mission X.  Reaction looks the same.

Honestly the biggest difference I saw in the 2 balls (Brutal and Endless) was this:  For me the Brutal could be a little be squirty if you got it too much in the oil.  It also seemed to be a little speed sensitive for me.  It definitely needs some friction downlane.  The Endless on the other hand seemed to read the midlane much better and really held up well when thrown a bit harder.  This ball just didnt quit.  Hoping that clears up your question a bit.  I for sure see a difference in the 2 and will for sure get lots of use out of both of them.

I would like to see the same surface on the brutal nightmare as the endless. It would be a very good comparison. Excellent video Jason!

I agree.  The Brutal is one of the oddest balls I've ever thrown.  It hooks a TON, but consistently goes a couple feet longer than you expect it to, and yeah, if the backends are a little soft, you can make the adjustments, but it does get squirty.  The Endless doesn't.  It picks up and turns, but where the Brutal has effortless length, the Endless needs more oil to get down the lane.  Great combination of balls. 
What would you be if you were attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis?

Thanks for the Video - Best I have seen.... Also thanks for the information about the endless Neightmare and Brutal Nightmare -- Was that a normal house shot or longer than normal...

The house shot where we do our testing, Revs Rose Bowl in Windsor Ontario has a house shot of 43ft.  Its not a heavy volume by any means but allows us to show the heavier oil balls to there full potential.
