Covertly dominate your competition with the 900Global Black Ops bowling ball. This ball employs the low RG and super high Diff Break asymmetric core with the S70 solid coverstock to authorize an attack on the midlane to backend hot spot that conquers house and sport lane conditions.
The Black Ops, I think is going to be 900Globals go to ball this season. You can use this ball on a variety of patterns, THS or sport patterns as short as 38 feet or even as long as 45 feet. I personally used this on mexico city pattern, played outside and this ball annihilated the pins. With this ball you have the S70 coverstock which is proven winner on THS and sport patterns(usbc open championships) especially. And you have the proven break core. How can you go wrong with this ball? Only extremely heavy oil and extemely dry patterns will keep this ball out of your hand. I drilled mine 55 x 5 3/4 x 40. Great job 900Global!-Eddie Frederick
This ball is the Deal of the Year. The Black Ops gives you the asymmetric core reaction at the Mid-Level Price Point. The Black Ops has paired the Break Asymmetric Core with the proven S70 Cover, combined with a smooth 1500 grit polish to make this ball not only perform on the lanes but raises eyebrows by its stern looks. I used this ball on the Kegel Bourbon Street Pattern (40Ft at 23.45 Ml) and the D/S event at Nationals. This ball will fit perfectly in between my pin down BreakDown and pin up Respect. The Black Ops gives you a consistent roll in the mids with strong backend reaction that will be the first ball out of the bag on most occasions. The versatile and proven S70 cover will also give you the ability to adjust surface easily that will allow you to dial in your ball reaction for multiple patterns. Don't let oil deception get in the way, just call in the 900Global Black Ops! Performance for YOUR Game!

About the ball…
The Black Ops secretly brings back two all-time 900G favorites in the S70 Solid coverstock and Break Asymmetric Core. This is a combination that has had unparalleled success at the USBC Open and on tough lane conditions in general. Finished at 1500 Grit with polish, the Black Ops will have the perfect benchmark ball reaction. Good length, great mid-lane read and a strong, controllable backend reaction.
This is my absolute favorite ball in the 900 Global line. I took the surface down to 4000. This is the first ball out of my bag when bowling tournaments on tough conditions. The Black Ops is very clean through the heads and gives me a good idea about how the pattern is going to play. The Black Ops has a great ball motion with the predictable mid lane read and strong back end reaction. I am able to play multiple angles with this ball and not give up carry. This ball keeps the pins low on the pin deck and hits Hard. This is also one of the few asymmetrical balls that you can get at this price point. Best bang for the buck on the market.
Drilled my Black Ops pin up with CG kicked out 2" with small hole. This ball comes at 1500 grit polished out of the box. This allows the ball to be very clean thru the heads and start reading the mid-lane with a strong arcing motion on the backend. This ball combines the Break core and the S70 coverstock which is very readable. If you want it to read a little earlier hit it with 2000 and you will have an earlier reaction with still alot of pop on the end.Thanks to TJ and the staff at 900Global for another great product.

The Black Ops from 900 Global brings back a core and cover combination used on proven winners The Break & Eagle. By using a polished finish on the S70 coverstock 900 Global has given us a product that gets through the front and middle part of the lane and stores up energy for the backend. This results in an effortless push down lane with a powerful yet controlled motion in the back that seldom over-reacts. A must have in every tournament player's bag!!!

I chose this layout for the medium-heavy over/under conditions that seem to wreak havoc with today's equipment and oil patterns. This is my go-to when nothing else will skid and finish in the pocket. Works great on fresh lanes as well!
Some may think this is simply a polished-up BreakDown...it's anything but!!
Drilled: 30x4.5x50 Dual angle
This ball can be the first ball out of your bag. On league shots or sport patterns 38-44 ft. This ball is very clean through the heads for an asymmetrical ball. It has strong mid lane roll and strong back end continuation. This ball has s70 cover with a low rg and a high df, which makes this ball very versatile with 1500 grit polish. This could be a great benchmark ball for all types of bowlers.

What a great ball.it gets through the heads with ease & comes roaring back. It reads the backend & has a continuous arcing motion. It works best on med to heavy oil conditions.

I compared the Black Ops with the Break Down when I first used it. I LOVE the Break Down and with the Black Ops having the same cover I knew I would like this one. This is a GREAT compliment to the Break Down. When the Break Down is too soft off the spot, the Black Ops is the ball to go to. For me the black ops is 5 boards stronger with the layout I have on it (35x4 3/4x45). It is still very clean through the fronts with more angle in the backend.
Very clean through the fronts
The Black Ops is a PHENOMENAL release from 900 Global. This ball gives you length, angle, versatility which will help carry the corner pins later in the block when the pattern begins to carry down.

Having had success previously this year with the Breakdown with a similar layout I decided to keep it simple. With that being said I could see similar traits between the two. I still had a strong mid lane read but the Ops was on a whole other zone in the lane. This obviously is due to the core dynamics being different but it is cool to see how much it translates to ball motion. I decided to take the OOB surface down to 1500 dull. This gave me a better mid lane read on heavier patterns and provided a better option for that spot in my bag.
50 x 4 3/4 x 40
Well I just couldn't resist drilling two of these when I found out that the OG Break core/S70 cover was returning. I have had a lot of success across the previous versions(Break, Break Out, Eagle's) so it was a no brainer to drill multiples. The pin up version did not let me down. It has that predictable motion throughout the entire lane. While the OOB provided a good reaction, I broke into the cover and settled at 2K. I wanted to accomplish 2 things, provide a stronger mid lane read and bridge the gap between the Respect Pearl. I think the surface change accomplished this nicely.
All in all this a a ton of ball at a mid price point. If you missed out on the previous versions of this ball do not hesitate to pick one up. The cover is very tunable and can be used on a variety of conditions.
What a versatile ball. I was anticipating this ball to be strong off the spot with a nice read through the front and mids and I wasn't wrong. I have used this ball in several different houses both THS and sport (with surface changes, which it takes very well).
You can't go wrong with the price regardless of the bowler level. I have seen this ball in the hands of a person who puts a lot of side roll and straight up the back, regardless of the bowler the ball flat out performs!

The Black Ops by 900 Global has my vote for ball of the year! Black Ops is my go-to when the medium-heavy typical house starts showing signs of over/under. This ball will get through the heads clean, read the midlane and once it hits the backend, POPS like someone kicked it to the pocket. I would not say it's sharp or angular, but more of a smoother transition across MANY boards! The Black Ops also has continuation through the end of the lane and simply obliterates the pins!

The Black Ops has the same core as the original Eagle (low RG 2.48, asymmetrical core) and is part of the Tour Preferred Series line of balls. I have my Black Ops drilled with the pin under the middle finger, cg kicked out 45 degrees this layout has a smooth ball motion through the front and mid part of the lane with a nice continuous backend. I changed my cover to 3000. This ball is great on long or heavy oil. I like to use this ball as a compliment to the Dream Big. They are both drilled the same. The Black Ops has 3 boards less hook than the Dream Big. Get some "Performance for your game". Get a Black Ops! Rich Miller 900 Global Regional Staffer.

The Black Ops is by far one of the most versatile balls featured in the 900 Global Line. The Black OPS utilizes the Break Asymmetric core and its wrapped with the S70 Solid cover allowing for a lower RG and super high differential tandem. Those specs allow for a tremendous amount of flare and an unbelievable amount of angle into the pocket. Using this ball in league I was able to get deeper into the lane and really attack the pocket with the ridiculous amount of flare that this ball produces. I've also utilized this ball on a number of sport conditions and its proven itself time and time again especially on the medium to higher volume patterns ie: Scorpion. This ball is a must have for any bowlers bag, not having it is a severe disadvantage.

Coverstock: S70 Solid
Core: Break Asymmetric
Finish: 1500 Polished
The Black Ops from 900 Global possesses an incredibly strong core/cover combination that for me personally needs to have just the right amount of head and mid-lane oil, along with fresh backends, in order to be useful. With such a high differential the ball tends to burn up all it's energy once in contact with any dry boards that I keep getting a roll-out reaction and is not beneficial for pin carry. When able to be used however, it hits like a truck and the carry is fantastic. Another good thing is that the ball immediately tells you after 1-2 shots when it needs to be put back in the bag. If you are looking for extremely high flare/hook potential, this could be a great ball, however if you are bowling on any type of light oil pattern or any condition with some extremely dry boards, this may be a ball to be left out of the arsenal.
