The 900Global Flux high performance bowling ball uses the S72R coverstock which is the S72 coverstock with a catalyst added. This coverstock was designed to keep the ball's traction in oil and increase its performance at the backend. The Flux uses the Amplfy Core which has a flip block on the bottom that raises the differencial and increases the torque of the ball at the breakpoint.
It took me a while to begin to trust this ball. It was designed for medium to heavy oil and we put a very aggressive layout to get the ball to make a strong motion off the spot. This ball is a 2-piece asymmetric ball with a new core that has a flip block on it. What this does is allows the ball to get down lane while making an extreme motion to the pocket. However, with my layout, the ball got down lane a little too far, so I took a 1500 abralon pad and sanded it down by hand. Now this ball is one of my favorites. It has been the first ball out of my bag for leagues and tournaments with higher volumes.
I wanted to throw it before I leave a feedback...Well here it is. YES....I shot a 300 with it last week. This balls rolls very well! Med/heavy oil. I'm a right hander. Was standing 28 with my feet, aiming 17/18 boards and getting it out to about 10 at the break point. I shot 759 with it after switching to it after a 213 the 1st game, moved left and had a blast with it. Only thing I can see it it LOVES the lane shine. So cleaning it (which is very easy to do!) Then I like to hit it with a 3000 pad or a used 2000 pad just to keep the lane shine off it.
When I first threw this ball after drilling it up, it went way long with very little movement to it. I was so disappointed. However, I pulled it out at another house to see how it would react and the disappointment vanished. Strong controlled movement that reads the lane and decimates the pins. Get you one!
The 900 Global FLUX simply put is a hard hitting, smooth rolling, explosive ball! I love it and here are my thoughts about why!
The Amplify Core is a new design built on the same features as the Ellipticon core found in the Continuum, with an added flip block on the bottom. This new two piece design yields a powerful "turning point" (torque) at the breakpoint! For me that equated to a swift and solid response providing predictability even with an acceptable "miss" margin of error! Further, because there is no outer core in the FLUX, when it has to "roll" harder to get the pocket it still hits like a truck kicking out that pesky ten!(My version of higher coefficient of restitution which increases hitting power!)
Being on the higher speed/slower rev. side of the spectrum the new S72R Coverstock with the new catalyst gave me firm traction in oil when playing down and in and maintained its strength at the backend when I was able to open up the lane a bit! Further, this cover accepts surface adjustments easily without deterioration! This was huge for me as surface is tantamount for my style! On THS I cut the cover to 2000 and on a 42' Scorpion I cut the cover to 1500. Keep this cover clean and fresh and it won't die on you anytime soon!
My conclusion of the Flux is it's a hardworking, fun ball for medium to heavy oil conditions that won't let you down! THS or Pattern the FLUX can be a "staple" to any arsenal. One that you will be using for a long time!

The 900 Global Flux
The 900 Global Flux is a great ball for Med to Medium Heavy oil.
The solid cover at 72R is just enough for cranker=s tweener=s and stroker=s alike.
Slow speed bowlers can use this one on heavy oil with on problems.
I tested this ball on inside patterns, in the track (second arrow) and out side of ten.
The ball worked great on all of the patterns (but will need head oil)
Here is my VLS layout for my 16mph speed on a fresh heavy oil lane
Pin to Pap 4" Psa to Pap 5.5" and Pin buffer 2.25". Use your med to heavy oil layout,or heavy oil layout and enjoy your high scores !

Does the Flux 14# ball have the same size weight block as the 15&16 pound balls?10/18/2020 - By EMS
