Want to add to my arsenal
« on: January 12, 2018, 12:33:13 PM »
I recently purchase the DV8 Vandal Destroy to replace my 20 year old Columbia 300 Primal Rage (yes I was still using a 20 year old ball don't make fun). I have now bowled 6 games (non on league yet that will be Saturday) with the Destroy and I love! It took a little bit to get used to it just because of the different motion, but when a ball is that good it should take too long. My next step will be to complete my arsenal. The Vandal Destroy is good for medium lanes and as a benchmark ball. I am sure I can adjust easily with a little heavier oil and a little dryer lanes (lanes don't break down quite as bad for me due to me being a lefty). However, I would like to add for sure one more ball to my arsenal later this year, and possibly another. I am looking for some advice which direction should I go for my next ball. Should I err on the side of heavy or dry lanes, and what would be some ball recommendations? I would like to stick with DV8 but I don't have to. One recommendation I was given was to go with the Rhino for a dryer lane ball but I am not sure about getting and entry performance ball even though I know Rhino is a classic and a very good ball.

Any advice given will be much appreciated!

Thanks

I 100000% love the vandal destroy, that would compliment that ball really well. Its a strong solid, the Vintage Inferno or Edge Pearl are also great pearls.

I am either thinking of retiring the C300 Primal Rage, which means I would need to need a ball for heavy oil. Or get a complete resurface done on it and can then be used for heavy oil. Either way I would need a ball for dry lanes.

What are your thoughts on the Deviant Pearl?

well they listed it as being for medium to light oil, but i think it would work for more than that depending on layouts and surface.
just so you know i haven't thrown a lot of dv8 stuff (only one i had was the yellow misfit) so i am just basing off what others have said and info on the ball

A good heavier oil ball above the Vandal Destroy would be the Pitbull or Pitbull Growl. Or, the Grudge Solid or Grudge Hybrid would be good if you can find one. The Freakshow Flip or the Deviant Pearl would be good choices below the Vandal Destroy. The Deviant Pearl has a higher RG which would get down the lane a little farther than the Freakshow Flip if drilled similarly.
