Following in the success of the original Deviant DV8 has produced the DV8 Deviant Pearl bowling ball. This ball starts with the Deviant Medium RG Symmetric core, then it is covered with DV8's Composite Pearl coverstock, and finished with a 500 Siaair pad and Royal Compound polish. This combination makes this ball an all purpose ball with backend flip that is best used on medium to light oiled lanes.
After the carry down hits and the heads were gone, Switched to the Pearl to continue to score!
This ball is so versitile and seems it can be drilled any way you prefer. Very clean through the fronts and continuous downlane without the over reaction off of feiction.

The Deviant Pearl is the newest in the Deviant line. With the Deviant core and the Composite Pearl Thug Life cover I was pleasently suprised on how much length it gets over the Original Deviant. The original is smoother and earlier than the Pearl.
The Deviant Pearl has more length and a flip on the backend that is eye opening on medium patterns. The Black/Silver color has great shelf appeal . This might be your first ball out of the bag for those medium conditions. I found this ball to be consistent and has a nice continuation once it makes the flip. I strongly recommend the Deviant Pearl when your original Deviant gets to be too strong later in the block and you need that extra length.

The DV8 Deviant Pearl is the new addition to the Deviant line. The Deviant Pearl is longer than the original Deviant with a strong backend. This ball allows me to close me angles and play more up the lane. I have had some great success on medium-dry oil patterns. This ball is very predictable with a continuous motion off of the break point with great energy.
The Deviant Pearl is a great ball for me when the lanes start to break down and I can get inside and send it right. This ball gets through the heads really smoothly with an aggressive flip on the back end! This ball is a great compliment to the original Deviant.
I am not a professional by any means, like to bowl and made the investment to have my own equipment. This ball I had to get used to, as it has a very strong hook and I have adjusted my game to compensate for that. It breaks early so if you are not careful it will be in the gutter before it reaches the pins. After adjusting my game and my roll, it is an awesome ball to have rolls through the pins very well for me and I have had some really good games and clutch strikes rolling with this ball. Smooth and very nice finish on this ball. I am able to use this to pick up spares as well it is a very manageable ball to use until I get a second ball.
Looks great, well balanced
