Get freaky on the lanes with the DV8 Freakshow Solid bowling ball. This ball offers an aggressive hooking motion at a value price. This motion is created by pairing the Low RG/High Differential symmetric core with DV8's Class 8 Solid Reactive coverstock. This combination provides traction on medium oil conditions which creates a strong continuous backend reaction.

WOW ! The Freakshow Solid . I was very very suprised and pleased with the Freakshow solid with the amount of hook and ball motion it gives you at this price point.
Compaired to my Freakshow I am honestly 12 boards left of where I stand with my Freakshow. The Freakshow solid's Low RG/High Differential symmetric core combined with the Class 8 Solid Reactive coverstock I saw a very strong hook motion on Med - Med Heavy oil.
I gave me more room for error right than my original Freakshow. It comes off the breakpoint very strong and more continuation than I have seen at any ball in this price point.
Freakshow solid is going to be a ball I use when the lanes are fresh and then as they transition I can go to my Freakshow.
This is a must have ball in your arsenal. If you want hook that will not break your wallet, get the Freakshow Solid.

This ball is very impressive for the price range and the hook potential it has. The Freakshow solid can handle a good medium to heavy oil pattern because of the cover and wow!, it rolls very hard on the backends! The most impressive thing I have seen out of this ball is its hitting potential. For as much as the ball has to work through the heads and mid-lane, this ball hits the pins with force!
Another neat attribute about this ball is the color scheme. As it's going down the lane, the colors are pretty awesome!
The DV8 Freakshow Solid is an absolute beast! The amount of hook that you can get out of this symmetrical ball is amazing, especially for the price point. I would say that it is at least 10 boards more than the original freakshow. It is very clean through the midlane with a strong backend motion that is versatile on all types of lane conditions. The Freakshow Solid does not disappoint!
This is a great, "first ball out of the bag," for me. I polished mine, and I have it drilled with the pin directly above the bridge. The CG is about 1 inch below the bridge. The ball gets through the front of the lane easily, but picks up just soon enough to get that good roll off of a symmetric solid. It makes a good smooth transition and destroys the pins. This ball always seems to give me a little room on the lane. The cover is strong enough to help it recover, but the symmetric core seems to help it hold well in the oil. DV8 has a wonderful Product in the Freak Show Solid. I would recommend any bowler have this ball in their bag.
I was so excited to receive the Freakshow Solid! I love a symmetrical core ball!! This ball has such a nice smooth arc and is not too jumpy in the back end. I have used this ball on multiple conditions, but in my opinion, it is fantastic when the backends are squirrely. I highly recommend having this ball in your arsenal!!

Great ball for any style
You wont be disappointed with the freak show solid. Its aggressive cover stock will hook on medium to heavy oil and its price point is great. You cannot get a deal this good. I drilled min pin above my ring finger. I bowl right handed with a speed of 16-17 MPH. Its my go to ball for game one. Go get one. You wont be disappointed.
I needed something in my bag that would react to the slick conditions our center has been laying down recently. This ball fit the bill perfectly. I haven't had a ball this aggressive in my bag for some time, so I'm adjusting to it on the fly, and loving every minute of it!
This ball is very smooth and has a continuous ball motion from start to finish. Great for medium to heavy. I like the fact that it's a solid but still gets down the lane with no problem. DV8 has been producing some great equipment over the past few years. This is a great ball for league and tournaments.
I got it because I needed a more pronounced angle into the pocket. It worked! Just tried it in league play last night.
Had it drilled with pin above ring finger and no x hole. Very different from my other ball. Hooks so much it took a while to figure out where to throw it. Once I found a spot I scored well. Was even carrying ten pins!
What can I say about the Freakshow Solid except this ball is a beast for the price! I drilled mine with a Rico drilling. The first game I used this ball in league I shot a 300 game/815 series with it! If you are looking for a ball that keeps on driving through the pins at a lower cost, this is the ball for you!
