This ball is amazing. It gets down the lane a little farther than most urethanes that I have seen and thrown and with the little bit of reactive in the coverstock it comes off the breakpoint very strong. It is continuous through the pins and the carry is unbelievable. I have been using this ball during league and even though we are bowling 4 games I don't have to adjust much since I get to play the part of the lane that most cant play with their more reactive equipment. This ball had me hooked when I nearly shot a 1000 out of the box.

This is definitely a great ball to add...
This is definitely a great ball to add to your arsenal and practice time. The very 1st time I rolled this is league during the 2nd game it buried the pocket. I ended up with 4 in a row and rolling a 250 / 630 series. After being away from bowling for 3 years due to a major knee injury, this ball forces me to keep the game simple and produces results. Also, depending on your ball speed you may see it hook on the backend. Reactive is present in this ball, so keep that in mind and you some polish if needed.

Must have in your arsenal.
With an 80/20 blend of urethane/reactive this ball gives you the best of both worlds. It has the new S25 hybrid coverstock. Inside the coverstock is the proven Break Asymmetric core. On house shots it allows you to stay further right on the fresh and play the track area. A great ball to have.

Shadow Opss Hybrid Urethane
The Shadow Ops is the missing link between traditional urethane and low end reactive for use on medium to dry lane conditons. Using the Break asymmetrical core with 1000 Abralon box polish finish provides the Shadow Ops with a 2.52 rg, .044 differential, and .017 Mass Bias ,which provides the length of urethane with the back end reaction of reactive. Surface adjustments are easily.I have used the Shadow Ops on fresh house (Stone Street)and on a Kegel 40 foot, medium volume challenge pattern with excellent results.

Shadow Ops Review by Jimmy Casteel
Quick comparison of the newest Urethane addition to the 900 Global Lineup. The difference between this ball and traditional urethane is that the Shadow Ops has an 80/20 urethane/resin cover coupled with the Break Asymmetric core. This combination is something that we have never seen before and gives that in between reaction from tradition urethane and low end reactive. The Shadow Ops is a good 3-4 boards left with my feet than the BooYah!, and the Covert Ops is a good 10 boards with my feet inside the Shadow Ops. The Shadow Ops is much cleaner through the first part of the lane compared to regular urethane and has more back end continuation. This will be a great ball to use when the heads become a bit burned up since regular urethane tends to read the front of the lane so early already. I'm very excited to get to use this ball more on wet/dry house patterns and shorter sport patterns. Go get one at your pro shop today. GO GLOBAL!
