Out maneuver your competition with the 900Global Desert Ops bowling ball. 900Global took their popular S70 Pearl coverstock and combined it with the Break asymmetric core. This pairing creates a bowling ball that offers the perfect combination of friction and backend reaction as well as controllable flare when used on dry to medium-dry lane conditions. 900Global raised the RG while lowering the differential so that when paired with the S70 Pearl coverstock this ball will perform well on those dry lane conditions.
As with others, generally speaking asymmetrical cores and myself have not gotten along very well in the past. The hook/stop motion was almost always the eventual result and that was frustrating. I was willing to give this one a chance as I had a specific drilling/purpose in mind for this ball. I drilled it 95x40 with a 2" pin and ended up with the MB left of my thumb hole. Wanted to have a log of length and a lot of control on the back part of the lane and that is exactly what I got. The ball has effortless length with a hard, but controllable, move off the dry. I was able to play much further right than with most other bowling balls (all the THS in my area are very low volume) and shot 300/847 with the first set out of the box. Definitely another winner from 900 Global!Brent Ritchie900 Global Regional Staff
Desert OpsCoverstock: S70™ PearlFinish: 1500 Grit, PolishedColor: Burnt Orange/GoldCore: Break LD AsymmetricFlare Potential: 3"Radius of Gyration 2.57Differential .030Int. Differential .011 The latest 900 Global ball in the Preferred Series is the Desert Ops. It uses the same Break core that was in the Breakdown but with a 1500 Polished Pearl shell instead of a 4000 grit finish. I drilled mine with the Pin up above my ring finger which was a 5 X 3 X 3 1/2. My opinion is that the ball has some serious length in the front part of the lane but it has a very controllable reaction when it sees the mids. Very pleased to see this rock in the 900 Global lineup! I throw this ball mainly on medium type Sport patterns when the front part of the lane has created some sort of friction after a number of games have been bowled. 900 Global continues to produce the best bowling balls on the market today! Remember if you want some added Performance in your game make sure you get a Desert Ops at your proshop today!Greg Thomas
have this one drilled pin under bridge with the MB on VAL with no hole. ball can be used on the fresh or the BURN! fresh it allows you to play straighter without over reacting,and when they dry out just jump in and throw to the dry. If you have slow ball speed this ball would be perfect choice for you. or even if you like to get in and hook it!! Tim Janz 900 Global staff
Desert Ops, 900 GlobalGreat ball for the burnt condition, also a great ball for slower speed bowlers.Sometimes the urethane balls are not strong enough for the dry lanes. The DesertOps can fill that void. With the famous S70 cover in combination with a high rg low diffcore, power on the backend on dry lanes is no problem. The cover allows it to burn offenergy at a very slow rate saving most of it for the finish. Slow speed bowlers can use this ball on fresh, medium dry and dry lanes. You never know what lane conditions will be, so be ready with the Desert Ops, the only one of it's kind.Donny Carr 900 Global Staff, Ft. Meade Pro Shop
60x4.75x65 1500 Polish The Desert Ops is the newest addition to the Preferred Series. This ball is the best suited in the "Ops" line for when the lanes become dryer. The Break LD core in this ball has been used in quite a few balls in the history of 900 Global and has been proven to be a winner. The pearlized cover put on this ball will allow you to clear the heads of the lane with ease and have the strong backend reaction that everyone likes to see. This ball will be best suited for those who want to play up the boards on fresh without having to worry about it reading the lane too early, or when the lanes do dry out, you will be able to move in deep and feed it to the dry and watch it come back hard.
Ball: 900 Global Desert OpsCoverstock: S70™ PearlFinish: 1500 Grit, PolishedColor: Burnt Orange/GoldCore: Break LD™ Asymmetric2.57 Radius of Gyration.030 Differential0.11 Intermediate DifferentialDrilling: 4 x 4x 4Pap: 4 3/4 x 7/8 up Lane Condition: 40 Foot THSI drilled this Desert Ops the same as my Special Ops to be able to compare the ball motion. The ever popular S70 coverstock was used on this ball in a pearl version. This compliments the OPS line as the Black Ops was a solid cover and the Special Ops was a hybrid cover. Compared to the Special Ops, the Desert Ops goes about 3 feet longer but when it gets to the friction this ball certainly knows what to do. This ball changes direction very quickly for me and provides a great option when I need to open my angles up and have a ball that will respond quickly.

Me and asymmetric cores have never gotten along real well, but I was very excited to get my hands on the 900 Global Desert Ops due to it's relatively low 0.030 differential. I was hoping to avoid the normal hook/stop ball motion I usually get from asymmetric cores. Oh goodness do I love the motion of this ball. It's very clean through the front with a strong but predictable down lane motion. So if you are looking for a ball with an asymmetric core for shorter or drier lane conditions then you can't go wrong with the 900 Global Desert Ops.Mike Bailey900 Global Regional Staff Member

When the ball gets to the back part of the lane I was really surprised on how controlled the reaction once. I've thrown it about 30 games already as the lanes here are drier than most centers and I have not once had this ball overreact on the backend. It really allows me to trust in the ball that it will do what I want it to do. All in all this is a nice pearl ball without that skid flip motion. This ball allows you to play on the drier conditions without having to worry about overreaction when it hits too much fiction. This ball is a much needed piece in anyone's arsenal when the last game of league comes or whenever you are bowling on lower volume patterns when every other ball is too early or overreacts on the back end.Dale Coffee900 Global StaffColorado Springs, CO
