Yes, I would recommend this to a friend


Super Clean and turns a corner. For those players looking to move back outside. This is the ball for you. RG of 2.53 and Diff of 0.038 allows the Captiv8 to get up the lane super easy and have a quick change of direction. This ball packs a punch. Color mix looks super cool spooling up! Those bowling looking for that “Down and in”. This is for you.

Down and in, smooth, strong back end, great looking


Not made for heavy oil, still has amazing motion

Best Uses:

House pattern, shorter oil patterns, take lane out of play and go down and in

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Amazing down and in ball

Down and in works amazing with this ball! Stays very true to the line but if you push out has enough to make it back and smash the pocket! Highly recommend to anyone that wants to take the lane out of play!

Captiv8 is one of those balls you need to have for those drier / burnt lane conditions.
Get's down the lane with a controllable backend motion.
It's as simple as that!

Hi Miss 300! The 13lb ball does have a modified core for the lighter weight.
