900Global Honey Badger

The 900Global Honey Badger don't care! Sometimes you need a ball that can be a little scrappy, that is where the Honey Badger comes in. This ball is great on demanding lane conditions, when the lanes break down requiring more angularity at the breakpoint. This bowling ball combines the S71 pearl coverstock that provides length with the Grapnel asymmetric core. This combo creates a strong reaction at the breakpoint.

Honey Badger

HB
The Honey Badger,a ball that can be used on Medium, medium light and in some cases light oil. This ball has maximum back end reaction when it hits friction. You will be able to stay in your preferred area of the lane much longer before making a move. Drill this one with your favorite layout and watch your scores rise. Trust me on this one, it's a one of a kind reaction, massively good.

Honey Badger

I dub this ball the house shot killer. It is super clean through the front part of the lane with a strong flip motion on the backend. This is the most "skid/flip" ball I own. This ball will never read too early but will over hook on the back end if it gets to the dry. This ball is awesome on the typical house shot or on tougher lane conditions where you need to create more angle to the pocket. The angles to the pocket this ball can make allows it to hit ridiculously hard and continue through the pocket creating great carry percentage. And the color of this ball is amazing.

Review
The Tour Preferred 700 Series Honey Badger stands out with its gold color and it just fun to roll. The S71 cover stock gives the ball great length. The Grapnel Asymmetric core gives you the skid/flip on the backend. I tested the ball on a 41 feet THS and the more I moved left the harder the ball came back killing the pocket. My ball is drilled pin up above the bridge with the CG kicked out to the right. This ball will work great on the THS, medium oi patterns, and drier lane conditions. I see a lot of honor scores in my future with this ball. This is a great ball to have in your bag, get one today!

Love

All i can say is BACKEND!! When this ball starts hooking it never stops. With my higher ball speed i usually have a issue with overt throwing pin up pearls. I drilled this pin up above the middle finger and have never had a issue with iver throwing the ball. It gets through the heads and makes a hard turn on the back end. One of the most versatile balls i have ever had.

Honey Badger Likes to Bite

Clean and Strong
This ball matches its name very well. Honey Badger has plenty of bite on the backend of the lane with plenty of energy to spare. It has no problems going left/right. If you are looking for a ball that will give you plenty of retained energy down lane so it can still make the turn and have the hitting power to carry the corners this is it! This ball is fun to throw and I am impressed with how much backend energy it has. This ball make look pretty but it is all business. Get you one today you will not be disappointed!

A real honey

This ball is incredible. I don't generally buy two of any same ball but I think I'll make an exception in the case of the honey badger. This thing really turns the corner and people's heads. A real honey.

900 Global Honey Badger

Drilled my Honey Badger at 55 x 5.5 x 40 putting the pin over and just left of my middle finger. This ball comes as advertised. First, I absolutely love the gold color as it certainly demands attention once it is pulled out of the bag. As far as performance, it is very easy through the front part of the lane with tremendous backend motion off the dry. Ball performed very well on a drier house shot even after multiple games. I was able to keep moving left and bouncing it off the dry with ease. Versatile ball that can be added to any bowler's arsenal.

Honey Badger is a Honey of a Ball

The Honey Badger Pearl is designed for light to medium volume fresh oil patterns and when the pattern begins to breakdown. The angular S71, 1500 polished, Pearl coverstock, combined with the 2.57 Rg,.041 Differential,.008 Mass bias Grapnel core produces great length and a skid/snap reaction on the back end. I used a 45x4.5x25 layout, with the pin just above my ring finger. On a fresh 37' Kegel Broadway pattern, the Badger got to the break point easily and then exploded through the pins. On a 45' Kegel Route 66 the Badger, out of the box, was a little too long. However, with some surface prep I would have been able to use it. On the Stone Street house shot, the Badger played well off the oil with a sharp break on the back end. The Honey Badger is a ball for all bowling styles.

My first real ball.

I am relatively new to bowling, been bowling 4 years maybe, and before buying me a Honey Badger I was throwing a Nexus hand-me down from my brother. I got pretty good with that ball and decided to buy me a new ball for myself. I went with the Honey Badger because, upon looking at reviews and videos, it seemed to have a similar action to the Nexus. I was absolutely wrong. This thing has way more break at the end. I love it.

Pros:

Easy through the Heads, Plenty of POWER!, Strong Consistent Motion

Best Uses:

A Must Have !!!

This ball is Awesome! Really smooth and easy through the heads with a good strong backend motion. The Honey Badger also retains a lot of hitting power through the pins. The perfect ball for when lanes begin to break down, or when starting on medium to lighter volumes. The Honey Badger is a Go-To Benchmark Ball. No arsenal will be complete without one.

Honey Badger

Coverstock: S71™ Pearl
Finish: 1,500 Grit Polished
Color: Gold Pearl
Core: Grapnel™ Asymmetric
Flare Potential: 4-5"
This ball is the ultimate pearl! The S71 Pearl coverstock creates that great Hockey Stick motion that everyone loves to watch. This ball is great for medium oil patterns because it can slide through the heads easily and makes and absolutely jumps off the spot on the backend. The Honey Badger is probably the best pearl ball I've ever had, and the cool gold color is an added bonus!

Layout 5 x 4 x 4 1/2
I've seen some of those mean ole badgers living up in Idaho in my younger days but the meanest of them all is definitely the HONEY BADGER. This ball is a sharp looking ball that has a mean bite on the backend of the lane a must have in your arsenal when the lanes dry out a little and sees more friction. This will be a favorite from the 900 Global line..... probably because of its pearl cover and late back end reaction, something every bowler is looking for. If you want a no brainer in your bag this is it! Make your friends jealous and get a HONEY BADGER today! Remember... performance for YOUR game is a must!!!!! Greg Thomas 900 Global staff
