Title: Dv8 balls
Post by: Koolaidman on April 06, 2020, 10:04:04 PM
Are they still gonna use Dv8 brand ? Ive heard through rumor only and havent seen anything from them in a while yet other 6 brands have. This is out of oure ignorance and,nothing other.  Will we see new balls from dv8 soon? Also,or do you think with covid 19 going on we wont see companies release anything for a while? Especially with no bowl expo

The Intimidator, Warrant, and Glam were released end of January. I believe they were due for new releases end of April or beginning of May but I'd guess those are on hold right now until June/July like I've heard about Radical

With bowling companies being shut down for being non-essential, it would be crazy to release anything currently. It would be interesting now if any of the smaller companies not under the umbrellas of Brunswick or Storm, will weather the storm. 900Global should be fine, but the new BIG Bowling is probably in trouble.

Yeah. It only seems like we haven't heard anything from DV8 in a while. They're definitely towards the bottom of the new group in terms of publicity. It's safe to say Brunswick, Hammer, and Radical are sitting at the top. I think Ebonite and Track are sitting in the middle with Columbia 300 and DV8 rounding out the list.

Not to say they're making bad equipment, just stuff that isn't really generating enough interest to the point people are talking about it.

DV8  and Columbia are very similar in being the brands that went all in with wild colors on a large number or releases.  DV8 was chasing the younger market obviously when released.  If that doesn't change you are limited.  They are all committed for 3 years to the PBA so ot will be 3 years before we see what happens.
