Any reviews on the poison ??
« on: November 13, 2018, 08:01:34 AM »
Has anyone on here thrown a poison yet ? I just picked one up but am a little worried to drill it since i have not heard or seen any reviews on this ball other than the few videos on youtube.

Yes, trying to find info as well. Seen this review yet? www.bowling.com/products/dv8-poison.htm Sounds really strong to me. The jury is still out on this one.  ::)
Brunswick EDGE Pearl (1st or 2nd)
Motiv Octane, Carbon (1st or 2nd)
Radical Cyclops Pearl (2nd or ?)
HyRoad (2st or 3rd)
(balls are quite similar but work on the conditions that are presented @ my house)

I've been disappointed there hasn't been much on the Poison so far. The Tenacity Grit is looking the most impressive of the group so far

BTM has the numbers very similar to the Green Quantum except a little more backend.  So yeah this one is going to be strong.  Nothing but the color really stands out for me but also have fair number of 2 piece balls already including Quantums with similar #s and a more proven core.

(edit:  BJI also has the Poison with very similar #s to Forest Quantum except the Poison is slightly earlier and they give it a smoother response to friction than Green Quantum (shows how accurate reviews can be).  If it quacks like a duck.  If you need a 2 piece symmetric oiler and don't already have a Green Quantum this is your ball)

Less is more especially with forum posts.

This ball for me does not roll up as early as my Green Quantum.  For me it clears the fronts better and is a little less smooth at the break point for me.  Definitely a stronger piece and for me to use on THS, I hit it with compound. 
Mine is drilled pin below the middle finger and cg kicked to just right of the thumb.

Just added my review for the Poison, been behind at the shop. Great ball if your looking for a strong symmetric, its above the Turmoils and a tick below the Creed Rebellion in terms of overall strength for me. The hit and carry of the thicker shell is what makes the Poison special imo.
