Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

70 x 3 3/4 x 20 – PAP 4 ½ -> and ½^ - Speed – 15mph – Rev Rate 380

Great ball for length and a sharp angular backend. This ball is very forgiving and versatile on shots that may be pulled or pushed. It holds when tugged and still finishes and then a lot of recovery from the outside dry boards. I was very impressed how well this ball rolls for being a pearl. Sometimes there is too much skid or too much jump off the dry, this pearl is not like that for me and has great control.

Easy length, skid/snap



Best Uses:

Transition when big solid reads too early, Intimidation

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Heavier volume step-down asymmetric pearl

Speed: 17.9
RPM: 480
PAP: 5 7/8 RT x 2 1/4 DN
No-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. Tremendous slouch.

Heavier volume step-down asymmetric pearl.

The Intimidator was an excellent heavy oil ball and saw lots of play among our PBA players early and throughout 2020. For a strong ball, the Intimidator was very usable on a variety of patterns and offered great versatility. The Intimidator Pearl will be a great addition to anyone’s bag as it provides an easy transition from a heavy oil ball like the original Intimidator. The Intimidator Pearl shares the same strong asymmetric Assailant core as the Intimidator and paired with the shiny Inciter Max Pearl cover makes a perfect match for an aggressive move and continuation. Adding DynamiCore for extra hitting power and Durability Optimization Technology (DOT) for worry free drilling with your favorite layout, gives you and your Intimidator Pearl a two-year warranty.

The out of box surface is 500/1000 then finished with Crown Factory Compound and paired with the core and cover combination is intended to get easy length with a quick response flip on the back end, and that’s exactly what I get with the Intimidator Pearl (helped by my chosen layout of 65x5x40 which is not as skid/snap as this ball could be). The Intimidator Solid was too much ball for me to use on a regular basis during league,even with a pin down layout for length and control (75x5x80) and the Intimidator Pearl is the perfect step down from your big, solid asymmetric when it’s reading the lane and pattern too early.

With the colors of Purple, White and Ocean on the shiny cover matched up with the Orange lettering this is another DV8 ball that looks just as great on the ball rack as it does when it’s destroying the pocket.

Premium performance and at that price the Intimidator Pearl can skid/snap past other balls in the same tier. If you’re looking for that big skid/snap motion then the DV8 Intimidator Pearl is an easy choice to make.

Be well, rip racks ...and shred pins.

clean, backend snap, adjust surface, hits hard


oob can be too clean but surface can be adjusted

Best Uses:

med house great for all angles

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the ball.

A big fan of the solid so I really wanted to drill this ball. First impression the ball is a monster on the backend and clean through the midlane. On a medium house shot this ball is great I've been able to play the track and move in and get around the lane and cover many boards with this ball. I was really impressed with how the ball kept driving through the pins from all angles on the lane. I can see this ball handling more oil if you knock the shine off with a 2000 Siaair pad to smooth it out and play the oil more.

This ball is amazing!

The Intimidator Pearl is an amazing ball! I shot 300 my second game with it. I drilled mine 40x5.25x65 and left it box finish. This ball is so clean down lane and makes a very powerful angular motion into the pocket. The Intimidator Pearl is great for heavy to medium oil conditions. This will always the first ball out of my bag, it is a great benchmark ball. If you want to play in or out on the lane this ball provides you with all angles to the pocket. If you want to shoot some big scores get yours today you won't be disappointed!

I have a radical counter attack and a motiv freestyle Rush and I'm looking for a asymmetrical ball to complement.

This DV8 Intimidator Pearl would compliment those two options because this was a high performance ball with a pearl coverstock to give you good length and a sharp backend hook.
