SNAPPYYYYYYY!!!

When this comes out of the bag it will turn your opponents to stone when they see the motion. LOL. Very great addition to the DV8 line up. Strong Midlane heavy rolling with a big snap at the breakpoint. Best success was used on medium volumes. Layout 70X4.5X30. For the visual pin is above the middle and mass bias is far right from the thumb. Cover is very versatile. Hit with 2K/3K to smoothen out reaction. Was able to stay in the same area without a massive move. Very easy to read and still hits hard. If are looking for snappy look no further.

DV8 Medusa

I did drill a new DV8 Medusa for several reasons. First, I liked what I saw for the intent of the ball and the numbers in the asymmetric core. Plus, and I won't lie, the Inciter Max-Flip pearl cover is black, yellow and gold in color. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love black and yellow together so truth be told, I got the ball because I liked the color combination. The layout on the Medusa I drilled is 75 x 4 x 25 and went over the ball with a 4000 Siaair pad. Factory finish is Crown Factory Compound. I tried this ball on fresh and leftover THS, a fresh 39' sport pattern as well as 2021 PBA Roth pattern.
This might be one occasion where the way I am seeing this ball is a little different than the manufacturer's intent. The ball is designed to be more for medium to higher volumes of oil with a more skid/flip motion. However, when I threw this ball on fresh THS as well as the other fresh patterns, I found the Medusa to be a bit "touchy". The THS at my home house is Kegel Neon and is not super high in terms of volume. (24.7 ml). On leftover THS however, this is where I found the Medusa to excel. The Medusa had no issue clearing the heads on the leftover THS and still retaining enough energy go through the pins well. The Medusa thus, as I see it, is a great choice on the medium to lighter volumes of oil and a definite potential option when the pattern has broken down.
See your local pro shop for more information on the DV8 Medusa.

The Missing DV8 Piece

The DV8 Medusa is the ball to go to when you need something to be clean through the front and be extremely angular on the back end. This is the ball that DV8 was missing in its current lineup. The Medusa maintains its energy very well through the pins, and it also keeps them low which maximizes the carry. The compound finish makes the break point a bit sooner on the lane than most skid flip balls, but that can easily be fixed with a surface adjustment if you want a later reaction. I love mine out of the box. I would recommend this ball for anyone's skid flip reaction.

Benchmark ball

At first I didn’t like this ball. I drilled it stacked leverage and it read too early for me. So I plugged it and put the pin between my fingers and the Mb kicked out about inch and half and now love the ball. Great drive with this ball. It is my new benchmark balll!

Is it good for a lefty and does it come in 12 pounds

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


If you get this ball in 12lbs the weight block will change and it will work for both right or left handed bowlers at that weight.

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


No, the 14-16lb will have the Medusa weight block but the 12-13lb will have a generic weight block.

Question:


I have this ball and I wonder what ball it would pair well with

12/25/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:


If you like the reaction of this ball you may prefer to go with another pearl ball that is for medium to lighter oil conditions so you have an option for when the lanes break down and get lighter. Here is a link to view our bowling balls that have a pearl coverstock and that work in medium to drier lane conditions: https://www.bowling.com/shopping/all/bowling-balls/all?lane-conditions=71&coverstock=52
