I have to say DV8 make some amazing balls. I love the Brutal nightmare and Marauder madness. I will be getting the Mutiny and too Reckless. Great job guys. Have Demo days in Maryland please. When you do , this is one of the best sites to advertised. I certainly spread the word if you come to MD.

I think DV8 makes good equipment.  I like the attitude in the advertising.  It's edgy, in your face.  The balls look good, too. 

Every bowling ball manufacturer hypes up their balls.  "Cleaner through the heads", "continuation through the pins", "stronger off the spot".....and on and on.  DV8 does this probably better than anyone.

At the end of the day the Endless Nightmare cost about $150 on most of the online stores.  Well, so does the C300 Antics, Motiv Primal Rage, Rotogrip Totally Defiant and many others.

If you want people to spend their hard earned money, entice them with something other than just hype.  Offer a package deal on the new releases to the public.  Offer rebates if we buy multiple balls.  The more you buy, the more you save.  You get the idea.

My two cents.

To W16613,
 I believe there is a DV8 demo day scheduled at AMF Marietta this weekend. There is also an RBT tournament as well.

 Make and market a ball for what 80 percent of league bowlers are - STROKERS with UNDER 300 revs. Dull Low RG high diff symetric ball.

I have had the Revenge,Terror,Reckless,Marauder Madness,Brutal Nightmare, and Endless Nightmare. Even though you say the new ones hooh more, well guess what they don't for a STROKER. You best ball was the Revenge- why? Because it was a dull low Rg ball with a high Diff which = a GOOD ball for strokers.

All the companies claim their new one hooks more on the backend and has better continuation. They forget to say anything about you MUST have over 350 revs for this to happen

Who do you think purchases the majority of balls produced?? LEAGUE BOWLERS.

Every company makes videos with a guy who has 400 revs throwing the new ball- PLEASE- REALLY??

So because DV8 doesn't match up with YOU, it must be ALL strokers who have problems with them? Sorry, but your rant sounds like you're butthurt because either you're using the wrong layout, surface, playing the wrong part of the lane or trying to use a ball on the wrong condition. That, or DV8 just simply does not match up to your game. I don't know where you live or bowl, but I see plenty of strokers using DV8 and having no issues.

It's not the ball, it's you. Or maybe, again, DV8 is just simply not for you. I have a hard time believing that EVERY stroker has issues with DV8, frankly because I know that to not be the case. Adjust the surface, change the layout, play a different part of the lane, but don't bash the company because YOU don't know how to use their product or it doesn't match up to you.

Flappers revenge= MORON
 I like dv 8 very much but they haven't made anything as good as the Revenge for me on heavy oil, which is what my house has. They are one of my favorite companies.

I know very well how to have my balls drilled, where to play the lanes, and what surface to have them at. For your information sonny I have had 3 300s and a 299 and 2 800s since 2010. I will be 65 this month.

The question was asked what should dv 8 do with their equipment? My response to them and ALL the other companies is cater to the strokers (league bowlers) more.

PS: Read your profile. Nice that you have bowled 1 game since 2010. You need to find something other than criminal justice because being able to read and comprehend words that are written is VERY important in that field. There is a huge difference between and and or. I was in law enforcement for 26 years.

Dont know yet - 1st ball is Pearl Misfit and I drilled it left handed because of my style of and condition I needed it for and had the change the cover also to 4000...  This ball surface is different than most companies - Allot stronger -- Will let you know more when I get the Endless Nightmare -- Coming to Bowling Alley near you...
