Hi. What's the weight of the free spare ball?
The free spare ball will be the same weight that you select for the DV8 Frequency. There is not a way to request a different weight for the spare ball unfortunately.
Can you have a custom color for your order
Unfortunately there is not a way to request the colors on this or on the free ball option. They all come with the same colors.
I haven't bowled in a league in fifteen years or so and I'm looking to get back into the sport. I used to throw a hook (far left) with a urethane hammer resin ball. Would this be good for me getting back into the sport?
This is going to be a very large jump coming from an older urethane ball to one of the strongest balls on the market. Urethane bowling balls usually do not have a lot of hook potential so if you were getting a lot of movement from one you may could get something more mid performance and it would likely be an easier transition. I would suggest since you are just getting back into it to maybe get a good medium oil mid performance ball. If you find that later you need something for heavier oil you can get a ball stronger like this one and always have your mid performance ball as a backup option for when the lanes get drier.
I bowl with the intense fire. Would this ball hook as well as the intense fire. Would this ball as strong as the intense fire. Or would ilosr something between the two balls. Would u rec a mend this ball to me. I am a league bowler. How would you compare them.
The DV8 Frequency would be duller out of the box than the Intense Fire so this makes the Frequency grip earlier on the lanes. However, this would be able to grip more than the Intense Fire and handles heavier oil probably a little better than the Intense on heavier oil conditions.
Is the 12 lbs. ball have same core as the 15 lbs.?
No, the weight block has to change in the lighter weight bowling balls so the 12-13lb have a generic weight block and the 14-16lbs have the Adversary weight block.
You mentioned generic weight block. Is this weight block applies to all different brands of bowling balls? How is it different from the adversary weigh block? Pls. Advice. Thank you.
Just to be clear, the generic weight block is only in the balls under 14lbs. The 14lb -16lb has the weight block mentioned in the product description. DV8 does not use the same generic weight block as another brands. DV8 has their own design for their generic weight block. So for the Frequency, here are the RG numbers for the 13 and 12 lbs weights - 13lbs - RG 2.597, RG DIFF 0.041 / 12lbs - RG 2.593 , RG DIFF 0.041. If you check the specs on the Intimidator and the Warrant they have the same RG and RG Diff in 13lbs and 12lbs because they use the same weight block in those lower weights.
Is there any way I can ask for a lighter spare ball
Unfortunately this is packaged together from DV8 and the spare ball is the same weight as the performance ball each time. We are not able to split them up and ship different weights.
If I get this drilled with you, does the drilling fee apply to both balls?
The customer drilling would only apply to the performance ball (frequency). The spare ball would not come drilled.
I used to bowl a cell pearl. Does this ball have the same hook potential or back end?
This would act more like the original Cell rather than the Cell Pearl. This reads more in the midlane for a smoother hook where the Cell Pearl reads more on the backend with a sharper hook.
Sent the balls r a closeout do it still have the 3 year Warranty on it
The warranty would still be honored on this even though it is a closeout. The warranty will start from the date of purchase and last through the duration of the manufacturer warranty.
I not a big hook player , normally throw straight down and in from anywhere from 5 board to 12 board depending on oil conditions can this ball be drilled for that type of reaction, I'm throwing an old storm deuce II that I had to have a counterweight hole filled this year because of usbc rules thanks you for your help
This ball is designed to start hooking in the midlane to have a strong arcing hook down the lanes. It is meant for heavy oil conditions. If you were not wanting a lot of hook and wanting the ball to go straight for the earlier part of the lane then I would suggest a different option. You could go to something more mid performance which has less hook potential and I would also suggest a pearl coverstock rather than a solid so you can get good length.
I throw a 14 now . Do you think a 12 is to light. Fir me.
If you feel that the 14lb weight is too heavy then you could drop down in weight. However, when you drop down below 14lbs the weight block will change and also the ball will not driver through the pins as well in the lighter weight so you may have to adjust for the different reaction.
I'm a high rev bowler who's using plastic on the outside to be consistent. will this ball react well and be more forgiving playing inside out with a higher polish on it?
There will be a very large jump in performance going from a plastic ball to a high performance hooking ball. You would definitely have to play more inside and even with it polished you would see a very strong angular backend hook. You may prefer to go to a ball that is mid performance so that it does not have as much hook to help you transition better.
I currently bowl with Tactix 15 lbs ball and Columbia 300 Saber Pearl. Will this ball be too much or will it compliment my high Rev hook?
This ball would read similar to the Track Tactix but it will be stronger than the Tactix and work better in heavier oil. If you do not have a lot of speed to match your high rev rate you may not want to go with something like this because it will try to read earlier on the lane and may try to roll out too early if the lanes are not heavy enough. If you have a higher ball speed and feel like you need something stronger than the Tactix then it should work fine.
Due to the time it takes to produce the DV8 Frequency with Free Spare Ball ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
