The DV8 Frequency is a high performance ball that fits most bowling styles. This ball introduces the Adversary core which is wrapped in the Flexure Hybrid Reactive coverstock. This ball provides the ideal amounts of hook, traction, and length when facing medium oil conditions. This core features DOT (Durability Optimization Technology) and DynamiCore. As a bonus a free DV8 Lime Luster spare ball is included with each purchase.
The DV8 Lime Luster spare ball comes free with the purchase of a DV8 Frequency
Alright , this thing is an absolute beast from anywhere on the lane , I refused to clean it off trying to tame it down some over the course of 8 games and it just kept smashing away , always recovers , if I throw it in the dry it makes a move early and fires straight at the pocket, throw it in the oil and it just snaps hard later, kinda just does whatever you can make it do , very forgiving. More recently threw a 203 followed immediately by a 223, I've never bowled that good in my life. As for the spare ball , it's the most fantastic looking spare ball I've ever seen , the pictures can't do it justice , it's absurdly beautiful , and it glows intensely under blacklight almost looks like it's lit from within. Otherwise just does what a spare ball should.
I will start this review by saying that I polished the surface of my DV8 Frequency, and when I did, WOW! This ball gets down the lane and covers some serious back end on the way to crushing the pins. If you are wanting great, strong, down lane reaction, this ball is for you. This ball contains Dynamacore that increases carry, and It also has the DOT technology that offers the 4 year warranty. You will see the difference in owning a Dynamacore ball because it simply carries the pins better. I LOVE THIS BALL. I would recommend this ball to any bowler. The DV8 Frequency is a must have reaction.
Here is the new hi performance ball for DV8, the Frequency. This ball offer a brand new asymmetrical core, adversary and a brand new hybrid cover, flexure. The ball features the new DOT technologie to optimize the durability and also dynamicore for better carry.
The ball comes out of the box with a 500 2000 slip sanding technique and it allows the ball to be less affected with lane shine. The new core / cover technologie and the surface allows the ball to be clean in the front part of the lane and recover pretty hard on the backend.
Because I had a lot of strong ball with early roll, I decided to go with a longer pin up drilling to be able to use it right after my strongest ball. I went with a 60 x 4 3/4 x 30 pin above the bridge drilling.
On the lane, the ball delivers exactly what I expected. The ball is clean through the front and delivers a strong recovery on the back end. Compared to my Verge, I play the ball in the same area but the reaction is completely different. Because the ball is asymmetrical, I'm able to begin with the verge on the fresh and when it starts to burn up, I can switch to the Frequency and play the same area. Compared to the instigator, I'm 2 boards left on the approach and 1 board left at the target meanly because of the backend motion.
For people with higher ball speed, the surface can be adjusted and you'll be able to use that ball and get advantage of the backend motion.
There's a mega promotion with the Frequency going on. When you buy a brand new one, you get a free DV8 spare ball of the same weight. No claim to fill, the ball comes in a double box containing both balls!!
To conclude, if you want want to have a strong ball with a sharp breakpoint, the Frequency is for you. You'll get a nice looking ball, a lot of backend and dynamicore for better carry and you'll also get a free spare ball to cover the wood when you don't strike.
Hi. What's the weight of the free spare ball?10/22/2019 - By Ricky
The free spare ball will be the same weight that you select for the DV8 Frequency. There is not a way to request a different weight for the spare ball unfortunately.10/22/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Can you have a custom color for your order11/3/2019 - By Fuse
I haven't bowled in a league in fifteen years or so and I'm looking to get back into the sport. I used to throw a hook (far left) with a urethane hammer resin ball. Would this be good for me getting back into the sport?11/26/2019 - By King Qua
This is going to be a very large jump coming from an older urethane ball to one of the strongest balls on the market. Urethane bowling balls usually do not have a lot of hook potential so if you were getting a lot of movement from one you may could get something more mid performance and it would likely be an easier transition. I would suggest since you are just getting back into it to maybe get a good medium oil mid performance ball. If you find that later you need something for heavier oil you can get a ball stronger like this one and always have your mid performance ball as a backup option for when the lanes get drier.12/6/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I bowl with the intense fire. Would this ball hook as well as the intense fire. Would this ball as strong as the intense fire. Or would ilosr something between the two balls. Would u rec a mend this ball to me. I am a league bowler. How would you compare them.12/26/2019 - By Jgd
The DV8 Frequency would be duller out of the box than the Intense Fire so this makes the Frequency grip earlier on the lanes. However, this would be able to grip more than the Intense Fire and handles heavier oil probably a little better than the Intense on heavier oil conditions.1/3/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Is the 12 lbs. ball have same core as the 15 lbs.?1/9/2020 - By Joe
No, the weight block has to change in the lighter weight bowling balls so the 12-13lb have a generic weight block and the 14-16lbs have the Adversary weight block.1/10/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
You mentioned generic weight block. Is this weight block applies to all different brands of bowling balls? How is it different from the adversary weigh block? Pls. Advice. Thank you.6/30/2020 - By Joe
Just to be clear, the generic weight block is only in the balls under 14lbs. The 14lb -16lb has the weight block mentioned in the product description. DV8 does not use the same generic weight block as another brands. DV8 has their own design for their generic weight block. So for the Frequency, here are the RG numbers for the 13 and 12 lbs weights - 13lbs - RG 2.597, RG DIFF 0.041 / 12lbs - RG 2.593 , RG DIFF 0.041. If you check the specs on the Intimidator and the Warrant they have the same RG and RG Diff in 13lbs and 12lbs because they use the same weight block in those lower weights.7/1/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Is there any way I can ask for a lighter spare ball8/4/2020 - By Chris
Unfortunately this is packaged together from DV8 and the spare ball is the same weight as the performance ball each time. We are not able to split them up and ship different weights.8/4/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
If I get this drilled with you, does the drilling fee apply to both balls?9/9/2020 - By Ryan
I used to bowl a cell pearl. Does this ball have the same hook potential or back end?9/25/2020 - By Curious
This would act more like the original Cell rather than the Cell Pearl. This reads more in the midlane for a smoother hook where the Cell Pearl reads more on the backend with a sharper hook.9/29/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Sent the balls r a closeout do it still have the 3 year Warranty on it9/27/2020 - By Dave
The warranty would still be honored on this even though it is a closeout. The warranty will start from the date of purchase and last through the duration of the manufacturer warranty.9/30/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I not a big hook player , normally throw straight down and in from anywhere from 5 board to 12 board depending on oil conditions can this ball be drilled for that type of reaction, I'm throwing an old storm deuce II that I had to have a counterweight hole filled this year because of usbc rules thanks you for your help10/12/2020 - By DD
This ball is designed to start hooking in the midlane to have a strong arcing hook down the lanes. It is meant for heavy oil conditions. If you were not wanting a lot of hook and wanting the ball to go straight for the earlier part of the lane then I would suggest a different option. You could go to something more mid performance which has less hook potential and I would also suggest a pearl coverstock rather than a solid so you can get good length.10/15/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I throw a 14 now . Do you think a 12 is to light. Fir me.11/16/2020 - By Jr
If you feel that the 14lb weight is too heavy then you could drop down in weight. However, when you drop down below 14lbs the weight block will change and also the ball will not driver through the pins as well in the lighter weight so you may have to adjust for the different reaction.11/17/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
