5/5 Stars
Pros:

Big hook, good on fresh and transition, good hold if you miss inside, good recovery if you miss outside, good drive and continuation through the pins

Cons:

None

Best Uses:

Fresh oil, transition, can use pretty much whenever

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Incredible ball. Zen ball good.

They should really never discontinue this ball. It is the highest performing ball I have and I have a lot of high end Storm, Roto grip, 900 Global equipment. I will continue to buy this ball as long as it’s still available and you should too if you’re a serious bowler. As a two handed lefty high rev bowler, I love a ball that transitions more slowly from a skid to a roll and with the Zen’s big core it starts up early but the pearl coverstock helps get it down the lane but is strong enough for fresh and transition.

Don't have to work hard to get desired reaction

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just what I needed

Frustrated from my 175 league average in a "tough house" that leaves a lot of corner pins, I bought a "used" Zen with about 20 games on it. Thumb plugged and drilled by EJ Tackett, my first league series was 632 including 18 strikes and missed 3 easy spares. Do I like this ball? Absolutely!

Angular, continuation, shelf appeal, medium volume

Best Uses:

Medium volume, higher volume after breakdown

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Really Impressed

This was the first Non-brands of Brunswick ball I've thrown in a few years. It gave a shape I didn't have in my arsenal based on the balls I did own. It is a great ball to move in with, but it is a little bit more than a 'burn' ball. As a higher rev player, I can use this piece for a lot of conditions!

Pros:

Hooks more than enough, very strong backend, very clean through the front

Cons:

Very hard reaction off the dry, not much forgiveness on misses

Best Uses:

Heavy oil patterns

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too quality ball

Great ball, I’m a high rev and high speed player so this ball is great for me. Lots of hook, but not the greatest for my speed, does tend to skid once and a while

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes indeed! It loves the back end!

Having thrown this...it has a lot of back end snap for me. I might hit it with a 4000 dry pad, just to read the mid lane a little better for me. I seen some people love it out of the box, but I'm mid speed, mid revs. It rolls so very cool indeed. I think I have to try it on a little different conditions and a couple other bowling alleys. I get excited when I put it on the ball return!

The 900 Global Zen . "The powerful rolling force!"

The all-new 900 Global Zen delivers absolute security to your game! The brilliant combination of Meditate Symmetric Core and S77R Pearl coverstock elevates the Zen to a powerful rolling force you can trust and depend on. Let's break it down!
The heart of the Zen is the new massive Meditate core. For a straighter, down and in type player like me, this new design brings a much welcomed confidence to symmetric cores. Being a high speed/low rev bowler, it's not unusual for symmetric cores to "roll out" or "deflect" through the deck leaving those aggravating "flat tens." With the Zen, however, I found the Meditate core rev'd consistently strong down lane, yet exploded its stored energy at the pins. I loved being able to play with the touch off my hand backed by a reliable crushing power through the pins. 900 Global has seriously met the challenge of symmetric cores with the "no weight hole" rule for players like me with the Meditate core.
The S77 Response Pearl coverstock is an impressive mixture added to the Zen. Out of the box, on fresh oil, it cleared the heads smoothly and had a strong snap off the pattern - yet this was only the beginning. Tweaking the box surface with 3000 grit, the Zen simply came alive for me! On a THS, this cover eliminated guess work with its predictable and stable motion. On a medium challenge pattern, it created a well-defined front to back movement you could clearly read and easily adjust to. I enjoyed how the S77R Pearl coverstock allowed the flexibility to play right and tight or left and loose.
In conclusion, the 900 Global Zen is simply awesome for players like me! I loved the freedom and confidence rolling the Zen brought to my game. It will have a place in my arsenal for a long time. I recommend adding the Zen to your arsenal too. Talk to your local pro-shop operator today! It's worth it!

Question:


is this similar to phase III ?

3/3/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Zen Pearl is a high performance ball so it would be a closer comparison to the Storm Astrophysix which is stronger than the Phaze III.

Question:


Is it closer to the trend

3/22/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This will be a very close comparison to the Trend actually. Both are high performance balls with a pearl coverstock and polished finish. They both have a symmetric weight block and both work well in medium oil conditions and some heavy oil conditions.

Question:


How would Zen compare to my Phase 3?

5/26/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Zen is a high performance ball designed to work on medium to heavy oil while the Phaze III is an upper mid performance ball for mostly medium oil. The Zen will have a stronger hook potential.

Question:


How does the Zen compare to the Axiom Pearl

8/31/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


While the weight blocks are pretty similar the Zen Pearl coverstock would be a little stronger than the Axiom helping to give it more hook potential and this would be why the Zen Pearl is considered high performance while the Axiom is considered upper mid performance.

Question:


Would zen pair well with ufo alert or are they too similar

1/6/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


There are some slight differences in the length because the UFO Alert may read just slightly earlier but they are very close and you may not see a reason to have both bowling balls because they are very similar.

Question:


iS THIS BALL GOOD FOR SOMEONE WITH A SLOW SPEED?

2/1/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


Yes, the pearl coverstock and the polished finish would help this get down the lane so it would not react too early for your ball speed. So you could use this in medium to heavy oil conditions.

Question:


Is this a good Ball for a Lefty on lanes that Do Not have high oil?

4/18/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


This ball is designed for medium to heavy oil so it would be too strong for lighter oil conditions. This could work for a left handed bowler but you would just have to make sure your driller sets it up for a left handed bowler.

Question:


Is this ball similar to the raw hammer pearl?

5/14/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Zen Pearl is designed to have a higher hook potential than the Hammer Raw series. The Zen Pearl can also handle more oil while the Hammer Raw was more for medium to lighter oil. They both have good length and a strong backend hook in their lane conditions but the Zen Pearl is much stronger.

Question:


how does the 900 global zen compare to the roto grip gem

5/23/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Zen is designed to give you more length than the Gem due to the pearl coverstock and the smoother out of the box finish. This can help the Zen also work down into some medium oil conditions too because of the better length you get.

Question:


how do i get the ball set to my hand?

5/26/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


We offer custom drilling on some bowling balls and for us to do the drilling you would already have to have your drilling measurements or drill sheet from a previous ball. Most people will not be able to get the measurements themselves so you would need to get the measurements from a driller to make sure they will be a good fit for you. If you are not sure of the measurements you can decline our drilling and still have the ball drilled at your local proshop after you receive the ball.

Question:


what is the main difference between zen pearl and wolverine dark moss. that wolverine looks like a winner. is there room in the bag for both ? zen is my #1 ball

6/21/2022 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


The Wolverine Dark Moss will be a great compliment to the Zen Pearl because they have very similar reactions but the Zen Pearl is a higher performance ball more suited for medium to heavy oil while the Wolverine Dark Moss is mid performance more suited just for medium oil. It would be a good 1-2 punch.
