900Global Chemical X

The 900Global Chemical X bowling ball was created with tournament bowlers in mind. This ball takes the symmetric Pod core and combines it with the S55 Solid coverstock to create a ball reaction that is needed on those tough and flat tournament conditions. This is done by the solid coverstock offering steady and sure-fire friction with the core providing a composed flare and easy transition on medium oil conditions.

  • Finish: 4000 Grit
  • Core: Pod asymmetric
  • RG: 2.49 (15# ball)

Chemical X is the bomb!

The Chemical X is a smooth rolling ball with a S55 solid cover stock. I have mine drilled pin above the ring finger with the cg kicked out at 5 o'clock from there. The pin is a 4 inch pin. I bowl on a typical house shot.

The Chemical X is a great complement to the Breakdown. The Chemical X had more mid-lane than the Breakdown, but still got through the front easily. When I missed a little right it had no problem getting back to the pocket without any over reaction. The Chemical X hooked 3 boards more than the Breakdown, which is due to the S70 cover stock vs. the Chemical X S55. Both balls carry well with a slightly different shape going down the lane. When looking for some "Performance for your game". The Chemical X will be a great addition to your arsenal! Rich Miller 900 Global Regional Staffer.

From 900 Global, the Chemical X is a supurb ball for the flatter, medium conditions you'll most likely encounter at tourneys. It also performs well on broken-down THS when you need to trudge through the spotty over/under conditions, smash the pocket and still continue through the pocket. Very reliable, predictable motion off the backend and is smooth to boot! Would also recommend this ball for some down-&-in action on a medium-heavy fresh pattern.

About the ball…
The Chemical X is the strong, controllable ball that you need to complete a tactical strike on the pin deck. With its 4000 Grit matte finished S55 Solid coverstock, blending the different parts of the lane is easy work.
The new Pod Symmetric core has a differential of 0.035 which offers medium flare in order to keep the backend controllable and make adjustments simple.
My opinions…
This Chemical X offers a strong controllable reaction. The ball has a great mid lane read and strong transition through the pin deck on both sport and the typical house shot lane conditions. The Chemical X is not going to flip or over re-act off the dry. The ball takes surface changes very well. Taking the surface to 2000 will give you a little more mid lane read and better control of the pocket. When the lanes get tough this ball will help you keep striking when others are not.

Chemical X
The Chemical X is a great ball for a smooth controllable reaction. When the lanes are spotty, I can use the Chemical X to get a consistent reaction without the over-reaction. I bowl in a center with no climate control (other than doors open on each end to let in some air), so the lane conditions vary drastically depending on weather conditions. This is my first ball out of the bag to gauge the conditions and usually the ball I stay with due to the sometimes drastic changes throughout the set.

Drilled - 35x5x60 Dual angle layout

This ball has become one of my favorites. It is very controllable. This ball has great mid lane roll and smooth back end. It is definitely a ball you can play up the boards with and keep your target in front of you. It works really well on wet dry conditions. This ball is versatile on sports patterns. Lengths of 38 to 44 ft. This ball has great pin carry and keeping pins low. Great benchmark ball for all conditions and all bowlers.

Review:

The Pod Symmetric core is a great shape that gives tons of control. I drilled the Chemical X with a smooth transition in mind and it gave me exactly what I was hoping for. Smooth early roll, strong arcing mid lane motion and tons of control on the back end. Very nearly a urethane type motion but with the pop of reactive resin. This ball was designed for tournament use mostly and will be in my bag whenever I bowl on more difficult conditions. It is a great compliment to my Break Down on tighter and shorter patterns.

Chemical X

Layout: 40 x 4 1/2 x 50

This is a unique piece for this seasons line up. When I first saw the core/cover numbers of this release I was curious where it would actually stand reaction wise. I never had a Favorite before but was a huge fan of the King Cobra. With that being said I based my review against the King Cobra and Breakdown.

OOB the Chemical X is really an early rolling piece that will not over react off the dry. With the addition of the Tour Line this season, you can really see what the designers are trying to add to the 900 global product line. I decided to play with the surface to see if I could find a good fit for my bag. The best reaction I saw was when i took the cover down to 500, 100, 2000, 4000. This prevented the ball from rolling to early and reading the lane better.

Comparing this ball to the King Cobra, while it has the same cover it is a completely different reaction. I feel that the Chemical X digs into the mid lane a lot earlier and is smoother off the break point. Comparing the X to the Breakdown I see a lot of overlap between the 2. It would basically boil down to the user preferring Asymmetric vs Symmetric pieces.

All in all if you are looking for a smooth rolling piece for your "tournament bag" than give this one a look. Personally this one was tough to match up to and I am a fan of the Breakdown anyways. I will certainly bring it to longer format tournaments because I can see the benefits but not during standard league play.

Differential: 0.035

REVIEW:

This is one of the most Smooth and one the ROLLIEST balls I have ever thrown. This is definitely a ball you would want to use on the fresh. This ball allows me to play straighter more on the track part of the lane, and when you have to start adjusting to the transition you wont have to make big moves. You will be able to make small moves with your feet, along with tighter lines toward the pocket. This ball will be in my bag for every tournament I go to, a simply must have for the tournament bowler

LIKES:

EXTREMELY predictable
controlled motion

WOW does this ball look great going down the lanes. The yellow and black color scheme is like nothing else on the market. This thing really turns heads and performs just as well. This ball has a lot of cover on it but the lower differential allows this ball to be in play on multiple conditions. This ball is going to be great for tournament play on fresh back ends. Used this ball on 40ft Nationals pattern up 1st arrow to break the pattern in. This ball reads the midlane great and is very predicable off the end of the pattern. Would suggest putting a little polish on this ball to use on THS. This will get the ball through the fronts cleaner and allow for moves to the middle of the lane. Great looking solid symmetric ball by 900 Global!

This one is a Favorite!

PAP 4 9/16

Drilling: 5 X 4, pin up, surface 4000.

THS, Kegel Challenge Series, Sport

Chemical X - if you liked the Favorite you'll love the Chemical X! Drilled it pin up, 5 x 4, cg inside grip, left it in out of box 4000 surface. This one is a touch smoother than the Favorite for those who remember that gem and it's reaction. Revs up but smooth off the spot but really finishes through the pins. Was impressive for a ball with surface. Really did hold its revs and stay consistent no matter any differences in release. Impressed with the versatility of the ball. Could use it on THS for all 3 games 701 1st night. Deeper I moved ball still cornered enough to carry. This is easily a benchmark ball or 1st out of the bag. Excellent bang for the buck here. Don't let the S55 cover number fool you, its aggressive enough for medium to heavy depending on speed. Would love to see this in a pearl version! I tip my hat to 900 Global on this nugget.

Chemical X

The Chemical X gives you that smooth roll and great entry in to the pocket on tougher patterns. This ball works great on shorter patterns such as the Cheetah pattern. I have used this ball on these shorter patterns and it allows me to play straighter and still get the good entry angle to the pocket without an over/under result. This ball is a definite option if you are looking for a ball for medium oil that allows you to have a controllable motion.

Question: how does this ball react with slower ball speeds ,12--13 mph .and what drill pattern is recomended.

8/30/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hello Jim! All other things being equal, a slower ball speed will mean a more aggressive reaction from the ball because it has more time to hook. I can't really tell you how it will work for you though because there is a lot that I don't know about how you bowl. If you'd like, you can give us a call and someone here can help you find the ball for you.
