Here is the new hi performance ball for DV8, the Intimidator. This ball offers the same core as the Instigator, the Assailant. The cover is the same base as the Instigator but with some hooking additive to cover more boards. 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 skip sanding technique and it allows the ball to be less affected with lane shine.
Because I knew this ball was a hooking monster and wanted to use it on multiple conditions, I went with a 60 x 4 3/4 x 40 drilling.
On the lane, the ball delivers exactly what I expected. The ball roll really hard in the midlane. Compared to the Instigator and Warrant I'm 2 boards left on the approach and 1 board left at the target meanly because of the heavy roll in the mid part of the lane. Last weekend I used it on the wtba Sydney (33') around 5th board and I bowled 700 even if the pattern was really hard play. I was able to miss inside and still get some hold. I was able to play that part of the lane and get some hold because the ball was reading the midlane before to come out of the pattern. When it begun to burn up, I was able to use the Warrant and play in the same area.
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.
To conclude, if you want to have a strong ball that rolls hard in the midlane, this ball is for you.

Impressing power and control. Pins don't stand a chance
This is another ball i drilled up cause it reminded me of the original grudge and this ball is amazing. Drilled it pin down and I was able to control the the lane so well with this ball. Misses in the oil read and drove though the pins and misses right didn't jerk off the spot. The addition to dynamicore to the DV8 line has just made great ball even better. Now my comparison to the Grudge I feel like it read the mids even better then the grudge did with much better continuation through the pins this ball never quit once on me and the Dynamicore helps send the pins flying.

Perfect for the fresh
This ball filled a gap in my arsenal that I didn't know I had. The DV8 Intimadator is great for moderately difficult patterns and is an absolute monster on house shots. It is the perfect peice when I need something to clear the heads, but still slow down in the midlane without shooting through the breakpoint. It's also great for fresh conditions when I need to tame the backend reaction. The motion is predictable and it hits like a truck. I especially recommend this ball for players bowling on low-friction lane surfaces where the fronts burn up fast.
