NEW DV8 REACTION
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.
