DV8 Freakshow

The DV8 Freakshow bowling ball is a freakshow because it offers great length and a powerful down lane ball reaction at a value price. This bowling ball pairs the Freakshow Symmetric core with the Class 6V Pearl Reactive coverstock to create a ball that works well on medium to light oil conditions. The Freakshow is too much ball for the price, and that is a great thing.

The DV8 Freakshow is a completely new offering from DV8, especially at this price point. This new offering pairs the new 2.481 RG 0.054 Differential Freakshow Core with the new Class 6V Pearl cover. I have tested the Freakshow on a 43ft 24mL 13.5:1 house shot on wood as well as a 43ft 25mL 11:1 on brand new SPL synthetics. I was thoroughly impressed with the performance that this ball offers for the price point. Each time I began by targeting 12-7 using an "up the back" type delivery. The ball was really clean through the heads and had a smoother arc into the pocket with great continuation through the pins. After 6 frames, I was warmed up and ready to see what it could do. I started moving in and used the built in friction to get the ball back. It was at the point when I was as deep with my feet as I normally go with my Thug Life. This new Freakshow is so clean down lane that it really pops on the backend when fed to the dirt. This ball just keeps surprising me. My friend said it best, "It looks like the ball gets bigger at the pin. It just sends them flying and there's no chance." Brian Graham has compared this to Brunswick's Melee Jab and I would have to agree. At the out of box surface the Freakshow is cleaner than the Melee Jab but it has a strong response off the dry like the Jab. This ball is one that should be on your radar. At this price point, you are getting a lot of ball. This ball has a lot of shelf appeal and would be a great ball to introduce bowlers to DV8. I feel it will be a big hit for many league bowlers. This is going to be my go to ball in my medium-light oil THS leagues.

Bottom Line:

DV8 Freakshow

The DV8 Freakshow is freakishly good at it's price point. Don't let the price tag fool you, this is a lot of bang for the buck. The Freakshow's cover glides easily through the heads, but it's low RG core really starts to make the ball pick up in the midlane and produces a nice continuous arc on the backend. This ball really drives hard thru the pins making it's carry percentage insane! This ball definitely performs its best on broken down conditions. When the stronger balls are starting to burn up just a little too soon, that's the time the Freakshow will excel. This is a ball every tournament bowler should have in their bag. At this price, you just can't go wrong. Step right up and see the Freakshow!!

You won't be able to find a ball right now that's as good as the DV8 FreakShow on medium to dry lanes. It has fantastic colors, to start with, so when it's throwing pins everywhere, it's extremely noticeable. The pearl cover gets this ball extremely clean through the heads, and then it hits the break point, and makes a good strong turn left. The ball finishes great through the pins, and on good shots, rarely leaves anything standing. It's clean enough that, many times, no ball change from it is even needed in the course of a standard three game set. DV8 has a big winner with the FreakShow in the versatility category with the FreakShow!

Freakshow Review

Layout:::: 50 X 4 1/4 35
Box Surface
Rev Rate ::: 300 - 325
Ball speed:::: 16 mph
Condition:::::40 ft. House shot

I had the DV8 Freakshow drilled 50 X 4 1/4 35. What I was lookiing out of the Freaksow was this,
I knew the freakshow would be real clean down lane and long but I also want to see the ball make a stronger move off the dry on Med Lane conditions.
What I saw out of the Freak show was what I was looking for. The Freakshow was quite a bit cleaner down lane than my Diva XOXO but it gave me more of a strong motion at the breakpoint than the XO for me and the ball didn't seem like it slowed down.
The Freakshow at this price point is a ball that will be that ball for when the lanes transitions .

The opinions expressed are solely those of the writer.

Freakshow is a must have!!

The DV8 Freakshow is a must have benchmark ball this season. This is one of the most versatile and reliable bowling balls that I have ever carried in my bag. For myself, I can use this ball on high friction and open up the lane while conserving energy or square up my angles on medium to heavy oil conditions. This ball is at a great price point and is a must have for every bowler!

able to play multiple angles with same drive, clean thru the heads, massive energy stored / destroys pins
I didnt buy this ball sooner
Best Uses:
med/light oil, tournaments, late leagues
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Med-dry oil ball Must have for tournament or light oil

Drilled up the Freakshow cause I wanted something a step down from my Xeno Pearl and man did I make a great choice. For med-dry this ball gives me more angles to play on the lane then I could have hoped for. For a ball that gets down lane so easy and stands up and drives so hard it just destroys the pins. Drilled with a 5 1/2 pin up I never want to put this ball down.
