The 900Global Badger carries on the popularity of the Honey Badger! Sometimes you need a ball for demanding lane conditions, that is where the Badger comes in. This ball is great on demanding lane conditions, when the lanes break down requiring more angularity at the breakpoint. This bowling ball combines the S71 hybrid coverstock that handles heavier oil with the Lacerate symmetric core. This core offers a similar motion as the Honey Badger but is more ideal for an angular reaction on heavy oil patterns. The 2-piece core creates a unique reaction at the breakpoint.
Drilling pattern: 70 x 4 3/8 x 70Pin position: Below bridgeFantastic complement to the original Honey Badger. While the HB gets further down lane and makes a much more aggressive move, the Badger picks up more in the mid-lane while still providing a strong, but more controlled, move to the pocket. The same continuation through the pins can be seen in the Badger, even when there is some additional oil volume. Fantastic ball at a great price point.Brent Ritchie900 Global Regional Staff
The Badger compliments the Honey Badger. I am able to get 3-5 more boards, affording me the opportunity to play a little deeper with positive results. I can use this ball on a higher volume of oil.

The Hybrid Badger is the perfect complement to the Honey Badger. The symmetrical core in the Badger produces a more arc like backend rather than the angular back end of the Honey Badger. I drilled mine 55 x 4 1/8 x 40 with a hole on my PAP 7/8 x 1 1/2. On a fresh Kegel Middle Road (39') pattern, the Badger produced a nice midlane read and a strong arcing move on the backend. On a kegel 39' challenge shot,(39', 8:1 ratio) I used the Badger after the transition. I was able to move left and open up the angle through the front to a breakpoint at 8. This ball can be either a "go to" ball after transition or a first ball for light volume fresh patterns.
This ball is literally the little sibling to the Honey Badger but just as good if not better. The Badger has that same 2-piece design seen in the HB along with the same S71 cover but in Hybrid version. This sibling has a different set of guts though. It is using the Lacerate Symmetric core. Where the HB struggled in the midlane a bit for me I was able to use the Badger on the fresh out of the box and still keep moving in. Because of this, I will be able to take my HB back to 1500 polish from 2000 by hand. This way I can truly get that 1-2 punch needed. The Badger still gives you that down lane motion made famous by the HB but with a bit, more midlane read. The more I moved left the more it just wanted to keep coming. This ball has no quit in it that I have found yet.
The brand new 900 Global Badger is a perfect compliment to the hugely popular and successful Honey Badger. The S71 hybrid coverstock and the new Lacerate symmetric core allow the Badger to read the mid lane a little better providing an earlier and smoother ball motion compared to the HB. This gives the Badger a little more stable and controllable down lane motion. If you like the HB, then the new Badger is a must-have for your bag.
