This ball deserves nothing but Respect! The 900Global Respect Pearl bowling ball takes the Tera symmetric core and alters it to have a slightly higher RG and lower Diff to offer a little more length. 900Global's 74 Response Pearl coverstock reacts to backend friction to shift the direction of the ball on medium-heavy lane conditions.
The Respect Pearl is a strong pearl. 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.
The Respect Pearl is a great complement to the Respect. This ball is clean through the heads with a strong motion to the pocket. On the house shot for me this ball has a little to much length to start with, but once transition hit and the inside was beaten down this ball worked great! As the Respect starts loosing carry, move to the Respect Pearl and stay in the same area of the lane. Your strike percentage will increase and scores will go up. Get some "Performance for your game". Get a Respect Pearl! Rich Miller 900 Global Regional Staffer.

The Respect Pearl goes a little longer and a little less overall hook than the Respect. It has strong, continuous back end and a great ball to use when the heads start to go away. It creates more length down lane and more entry angle. If you need more length and smoother reaction, you can put 4000 on it. Great ball for medium to medium oily patterns.

With the layout that I used on this Respect pearl I was expecting alot of length with a flippy back end reaction. The length I certainly got but to my surprise this one didn't go sideways on the back half of the pattern. Much like the original Respect, this complement gives me that same heavy roll throughout the midlane and an easy transition off the dry. You will get the same continuation through the pins as the original Respect as well. This is a great complement to the original Respect or Black Ops.
I wouldn't say that this is the first ball that you take out of your bag. Once the pattern starts to open up and you require something to clear the heads this will be a good go to piece.

This ball is a great compliment to the Respect! If you love the reaction of the Respect and need a little more length, look no further than the Respect Pearl! Another MUST-HAVE for your arsenal! This ball works best when the lanes have started transitioning and you need something to read the midlane clean and not jump left off the back. As with the original Respect, the Respect Pearl gives a nice, smooth, predictable reaction with continuation through the pocket. Works great on the fresh as well!

The Respect Pearl, a great ball that is a compliment to the original Respect. Once you start to lose your shape with the original, you can pick up the Pearl and not miss a beat. Overall, I would say its a little less overall hook than the Respect, but definitely more angular down the lane. 900 Global did a great job with the changes they made with the coverstock and RG numbers to give this ball a skid/flip motion. This ball will be good on most medium to slightly oily patterns. Be it THS or some of the sport patterns that run between 38-42 feet. I drilled mine with a 70 x 5 3/4 x 45 layout. Great job 900 Global!

About the ball…
The Respect Pearl features the 74 Response Pearl coverstock finished at 1500 Grit with polish. Pair that with the Tetra LD Symmetric core, a modified version of what was used in the original Respect, and you've got a ball that goes long and has a very strong backend reaction.
I knocked down the surface to 4000. This is one of the best balls that I have in my bag. The ball gets through the heads clean reads the mid lane great and drives hard through the pin deck. The ball allows multiple entry angels from straight up the boards to moving in and swinging the lane with no loss in carry.
PAP - 5 1/8 over & 1/4 up
Speed - 17-18 mph
The Respect Pearl is a great complement to the Respect. If you like the reaction you get from the Respect, you need to add this to your arsenal. The pearl coverstock gives the Respect Pearl the extra length needed when the heads and/or mids start to go, but retains plenty of energy for a strong reaction on the backend.

The Respect Pearl is the perfect complement to the Respect. The Respect Pearl is wrapped with the 74 Response Pearl cover and is paired with a more dense Tetra symmetric core to promote a longer more controlled down lane motion. I love having this ball in my bag, especially on a shot that is broken down. Getting this ball to the spot is very simple and the ball motion to the pocket is completely unmatched to its competition. If you own the Respect or if you're looking for something a little longer that
doesn't lack in the hook department then this is definitely your ball. If you're someone who likes to play a straighter line, or if you're an avid sport bowler looking for a ball that has the ability to play straighter angles, then I would highly suggest getting yourself a Respect Pearl. Respect Pearl, Respect just got a whole lot easier to earn.

I was EXTREMELY excited to get my Respect Pearl. This ball will allow higher rev players, such as myself to stay further right longer. This is another great one two punch from 900 global. People will be able to start out using the original Respect, once that ball is too strong in the mid-lane then they will be able to the Respect Pearl and move 2 or 3 boards back right.

Drilled my Respect Pearl 5 x 3, pin up over label. This one does as advertised. Touch less overall hook that Respect and for me has a nice controllable pop on the backend. With the layout I am able to swing the track and see an arc/flip motion that enables me to hang out in the dry longer than normal. Pleasantly surprised with the skid up front this ball gives me but the lower diff seemed to give it some mid lane revs you normally don't see in a pearl. Throwing this through the breakpoint wasn't a concern at all. Excellent compliment to the original Respect as it fits that I need more skid the lanes are breaking down transition - and it looks cool too! Great addition to the Global line.
This ball is THE go to ball on a typical house shot. The 37'-38' house oil pattern is what this ball is designed to read like a book. The Respect Pearl is without a doubt the sharpest hooking ball I have in my arsenal. It is very smooth through the heads and begins its lift off to the pocket as soon as it crosses the 42'-43' mark. I drilled this one at 1:30 off the ring finger and MB 1" right of the thumb hole and used 2000-grit on the cover. Fall leagues are right around the corner so if you want to impress your friends and make them feel envious, show how you EARN Respect on the lanes. (My PAP is 5 3/4" right and 5/8" up, ball speed is about 15.5mph and medium rev rate)
