DV8 Hooligan

Make some trouble on the lanes with the DV8 Hooligan. DV8 wrapped the Hooligan high RG, symmetric core with the Class 3F Reactive coverstock and then finished it with Royal Shine Polish to create a ball that moves easily through the front and mid lane with a fast response on the backend causing a powerful skid/flip motion on medium dry to medium oily lanes.

Extreme Skid Flip

I drilled my Hooligan with a layout of 50x5x45 which is my standard pin up layout for symmetric equipment. It gives me a controllable mid-lane motion with a quicker response to friction.
The angle the Hooligan creates on the backend is something very special. I don't think anyone will be able to watch this ball and claim that "Brunswick Brand" balls roll early and smooth anymore. This is by far the most angular ball I have seen from DV8 yet.
On a medium volume house shot the Hooligan flies down the lane. It almost looks like it is going to squirt too far but the minute it sees friction it makes a very quick move. It surprised me the first time I threw it. The biggest thing that I am impressed with out of the Hooligan is the fact that it rolls through the 8 pin from almost every angle. It never seems to quit when going through the pins.
The Hooligan is going to be a great ball for anyone. It can handle multiple different patterns, angles, and styles of play. At this price point I don't know if there will be any better value for your dollar on the market.

DV8 Hooligan

MY Name is Doug and I am a Left hander and I throw the ball around 15mph. I am on DV8 Regional Staff.

When DV8 brought the Hooligan out I was really happy that you get a ball that really skids through the heads really clean and hits really hard and for the price you will not go wrong. The price is fantastic you are getting a ball reaction that you will have to spend around $190.00 for and you will spend much less for this ball.

I drilled my first Hooligan with the Pin below my Ring Finger and the cg kicked out. The Pin is 2-3". I hit the surface with a light 4000 pad and I really love this ball.

I used this on multiple lanes conditions but the one that I am going to do this review is on USBC White Pattern. With this drill pattern it allows me to stay square and play 10 and left and this is where I like to play. We are bowling on really used wood lanes and the pattern I need the ball to clear the heads well and need some on the back and this ball gives me that. I have not shot under 740 the last 5 weeks. I have also used this on Route 66, and also the PBA Cheetah. On t

I would not recommend the ball on really long pattern because you need the ball to read early or a dull bull this ball does not work well.

I would really recommend this ball to people that want to keep squared up and a really clean ball, and like I said early the price of the ball is fantastic. I am going to drill another one with the pin above my fingers.

I want to thank Brunswick and DV8 for bringing out another Fantastic Ball. Brunswick brands I think have the greatest balls on the market.

DV8 Hooligan

DV8 Hooligan
Ball is drilled 45X4 ¾"X30 1000 Abralon With Polish Tested on House Pattern

This is a great ball when the lanes start to breakdown and the lanes force you left. I find this ball is very clean through the front part of the lanes, and even when the head start to get choppy it seems like it still skids through without checking early. I find for me with this ball it worked better when the lanes would transition and I had friction to the right. It allowed me to get in on the lane and get my hand around the ball, and just throw it to the friction. I had changed the Box finish to accomadate with my arsenal of balls. That is the great thing about balls these days. The covers are very easy to manipulate and change to your desires and what you are looking in terms of reaction and the shape that bowlers want to see. I have a 2nd Hooligan as well that I will review when I get it drilled. For the bowlers with low rev rates and need a ball to skid further down the lane, this is a ball you should drill as it has very easy length with great finish in the back. For the higher rev bowlers, a great ball for when the lanes start to burn out and you need that easy length through the front part of the lane. Most likely with the higher rev players you will want to take the surface up to 4000. Again with these balls they look great going down the lanes with the colours that they have on them. It catches the eyes of a lot of people that I have noticed.

Thank you DV8, Brunswick, Radical for letting me represent your company.
