The 900Global Dream Big bowling ball takes a low RG and high diff core called Identity and covers it with a solid 79 Alert coverstock. This combination allows the ball to read the midlane without losing its aggressiveness at the backend on heavy oil conditions.
Heavy oil pattern? Low rev rate? Looking for high scores? Well, then the Dream Big is for you! I would recommend this ball for anyone needing a ball that reads the front part of the lane and doesn't skid thru it, but yet the cover doesn't just hook at your big toe either! This ball reads the midlane very well on these patterns and has great continuation through the pins. This is a great combination of core to cover that will help you on any oily to heavy oil THS pattern or sport patterns like the Shark or Badger. This ball will just allow you to bowl on these heavy oil patterns and not let you feel like you have to baby it to get it into a roll. This ball is meant for oily patterns and will do a great job of handling that. So dreaming of high scores on oily lanes? Then Dream Big!! I drilled mine 65 x 5 1/2 x 40. Well done 900 Global!

About the ball…
The newest addition to 900 Global's high-end Engineer series is the Dream Big. This ball uses the 79 Alert Solid coverstock, where the previous releases in this line, the Dream and Dream On, used versions of the 74 Alert cover. It features the same Identity Asymmetric core as the two previous Dreams.
This ball is a must have for the heavy oil. It reads the mid lane with a strong aggressive arc to the pocket. The Dream Big reads the mid lane earlier than the Dream On and has 3-5 more boards of hook. I have used this on a typical house shot as well as sport shots and it is one of the first balls out of my bag for the longer or higher volume oil patterns. For those of you with a lot of hand you will need lots of oil to use this ball. For the folks with less hand this will be a great ball for the typical house shot, it will give you a strong motion to the pocket without being flippy. This is one of those balls that everyone should have.

This ball is very clean through the heads for heavy oil ball. It has strong mid lane roll and strong back end roll. It is about 4 boards stronger than dream on. This ball works good on house league shots and flat sport patterns. It is a very versatile ball and will open up lane on longer, tighter patterns.

This is definitely the strongest ball now in the 900 Global lineup. The Dream On used to be the biggest hooking ball in my bag, but the Dream Big is even bigger! If you have a heavy oil condition to deal with, the Dream Big will read the lane with ease. The most impessive trait about this ball for me is the fact that it doesn't overreact off the spot down lane or pick up too early. For such a strong ball reaction, this ball is extremely controllable down lane which is something that I don't see very often. As compared to the Dream On, the Dream Big is a couple boards stronger overall, but the down lane motion is a bit more subtle due to the solid Alert Coverstock. The OOB finish at 4000 has plenty of teeth to read through the oil, but it can be lowered quite easily to pick up even more for those with lower rev rates or higher ball speeds.

Dream Big. 900 Global's Dream Big utilizes the Identity Asymmetric core and the 79 Alert Solid Cover. This
ball really holds it line through the midlane and really gives you a steep angle on pocket entry. If you're looking
for a ball that needs to turn the corner on medium to heavy volume patterns, then look no further than the Dream Big.
I was able to play more in the post area on my THS and at no point in time did I worry about this ball getting back
to the pocket. There was a few times i sailed the ball out past my break point and the Dream big seemed to have no
problem motoring back to the pocket. If your bag is lacking in the High Performance ball department look no further
and get yourself a Dream Big. Big Core, Big Cover, Big Hook, Dream Big.

The Dream Big was my personally most anticipated release from 900 Global and it didn't fail to live up to expectations. Using the 79 Alert Solid on the Identity Asymmetric core has given us one of the biggest motions available on the market. I used my favorite layout on this monster to compare it to the original Dream and was awarded with 6-8 more boards of hook and the ability to handle a ton more oil in the head and middle part of the lane. If you are looking for "hook in a box" you should definitely give the Dream Big a look.

This ball really hooks! It gets down the lane & just makes the turn from anywhere . It is very hard to through this ball through the breakpoint. This ball loves oil & I love it. It works best on heavy oil patterns.

This ball is flat out amazing! If you are looking for a ball that will read early and have a ton of continuation this is the ball. Having problems on your heavier oil.....here is your answer.
I have used this ball on several conditions with one 300 in the bank! I am a huge fan of the Dream On but when this ball came out I needed to have it!
As a bowler we all experience the flat ten/seven pin, because we miss inside and the ball the glides through the oil. This ball will read that miss and kick out the corner like no other.

What I like about the Dream Big is the hook. However I'm still able to get a nice controllable arc in the heavier oil patterns. For me I know when I get onto a pattern where there is more oil I can ball up from my Black Ops which still gives me a smooth arc and gets down lane but with the Dream Big it starts up quick and gives me more overall hook and a better look on the heavier conditions. I am also able to move left with my feet at the start of league and this ball allows me to keep my same line for most of the night. Only having to make slight adjustments rather than having to make a drastic move with a ball change. If you are looking for something with more overall hook that can open up the lane on heavier conditions, then this is the ball that needs to be in your bag.

Dream Big is your heavy oil ball! This particular layout provides a large but smooth movement on the backend and is continuous through the pindeck. It does not read so early that it jumps left, nor is it so late that it skids through the breakpoint. It can definitely be used to help open up the lanes. Can be used on medium-to-heavy conditions with confidence. This ball allows for playing deeper than normal. Polishing to 1500 gives more length and a later, skid-flip type reaction.
