Lovin' the Freakshow
I have always liked the Freakshows and was excited to try the Freakshow Flip. This ball gives me a little more length but a stronger back end reaction than the Freakshow solid. Bowling on Kegel's Turnpike Pattern (41'), I was able to open the lane up just enough with this ball to get enough "belly in the front" and "turn on the back end". Its symmetric core creates a smooth motion with a stronger backend reaction than the original Freakshow Solid and Pearl.
Since I am a medium rev player, I tend to look for equipment that gives me a little extra turn when the ball exits the pattern. For example, when I start leaving weak corners (7 pin), I like to go to a longer and stronger ball to help me kick the corner out of the rack. This ball does the trick.

Great Medium Pearl
The Freak Show Flip is an incredible option of you need a medium to light oil pearl ball. It is exactly the perfect compliment to the Freak Show Solid, which is an incredible benchmark ball. This ball will clear the front of the lane with ease, and if going to go extremely hard off the break point. I've never had any issue with a weak hit from this ball. It hits the pins extremely hard and drives through the pin deck with a heavy roll exactly like it should. I polished mine for the extra length (I also polished my Freak Show Solid), and to keep it as the compliment to the Freak Show Solid. If you need a good hard hitting pearl, to give you some extra length on medium to short oil, or on the burn, this ball is definitely for you. Buy the Freak Show Flip today.

This ball is a freak.. Super smooth through the fronts and then flips hard. As a lefty I play fairly straight up the boards, but am able to swing this ball and it retains energy to get back. Great addition to the line.

back end at an affordable price
Here is the new addition to the Feakshow serie, the Freakshow flip. This ball offers the same core as the other ball in the serie but the coverstock has projection and flip additive. The ball is designed for medium to light oil lane condition.
I drilled mine 65x4"x65. I drilled it this way to avoid the ball to be too over / under because that's the kind of problems I tend to have with weaker coverstock. On the lane, I play the Flip one board right with my feet and one board right with my eyes. The balls offer more length because the coverstock is weaker but still offers a great backend. Compared to my Alley Cat, I play the Flip two boards left with my feet and one board left with my eyes.
For people with more speed, the ball can be sanded to have more traction. That's what Shannon O'keefe did to win the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Open and the Tour Championship (a Major).
To conclude, if you wanna have a great backend and a lot of performance for an affordable price, the Freakshow Flip is your choice.

More Backend than the Original Freak!
The DV8 Freakshow Flip gives any bowler everything you have come to love from the Freakshow line, with added movement off the spot! The Freakshow Flip provides bowlers extremely consistent roll with a backend pop that is needed on many conditions. I personally find this ball better used on medium-dry conditions because of my ball speed, but I can tell you this ball will fit any average bowler's game on any condition. This symmetrical core ball can be thrown from multiple angles and should be a perfect fit for league or competitive bowler.
The Freakshow Flip is already receiving rave reviews from our National Touring PBA and PWBA members. This is a must have ball to go to when you need a very consistent roll that is predictable and provides great hitting power at the pocket. The Freakshow Flip's ball motion can be classified as very smooth and very predictable down the lane. The layout for this ball is pin 3"-5" from PAP. Ball has tremendous control with this layout.
The DV8 Freakshow Flip is a ball you cannot go wrong with. I highly encourage bowlers at all levels to check out this incredible new release! The universal release date for the new DV8 Freakshow Flip is 7/11/17. DV8....If you are not throwing DV8, you're just not bowling! #brunswickbowling, #dv8bowling, #radicalbowling technologies

Great Value !!!
Freakshow Flip. They saved the best for last in this lineup. Used a standard label drilled for super clean reaction down lane on old worn out heads. The Backend reaction is strong without over/under. Great value!!! Great performance!!
By The Wing from Fort Walton Beach, FL
A great add-on to the Freakshow line. I have my Flip drilled identical to my original Freakshow 46° x 5.5 x 39°. While they have a similar look the cover from the Flip is cleaner and more responsive to friction than the original. My original Freakshow slows down slightly faster in the midlane than the Flip. The Flip is about 1-2 boards more down lane. Throwing the Flip on the 43ft burnt up Chameleon and 42ft Houseshot the lines I threw weren't that different. The Flip read everywhere it needed it and gave me more miss room when the patterns opened up. Can't say enough about how good the Freakshow line is.
