Great ball! I bowl two handed and usually my foot placement is the middle dot with my right foot and aiming for in-between the 2 and 3 arrow. I've increased my score significantly and average. I love how the ball comes in strong towards the end with the placement I have it set up as.

Hook…..and More Hook!

If you are looking for a big ball in your bag with a tremendous amount of hook, then look no further than the DV8 Hater. This ball is and absolute hook beast that works incredible on oilier lane conditions. The Hater Core and the HK22 additive added to this hybrid coverstock takes this new ball to whole new heights. The DV8 Hater is the big ball you need in your bag to chart and read the lanes. Drilled slightly different from the Hammer Envy Tour with a 40x3.5x30, the DV8 Hater picks up much sooner than the Envy Tour down lane. This ball allows bowlers to adjust the surface to adjust to multiple oilier lane conditions. DV8 continues to create revolutionary bowling balls to fit today’s demanding lane conditions. The DV8 Hater continues in the same fashion of revolutionizing the game of bowling and does not disappoint in performance. DV8…if you are not throwing DV8, YOUR JUST NOT BOWLING!!!

Love/Hate Relationship

The names great! People are going to love this ball. The shape reminds me of a bigger symmetrical ball but with little more kick. This will be the first ball out of a a lot of bowlers bag.

What core is in 12 lb? If it is a different core is it still going to hook more than my regular ball?
