This ball hooks

Here is the latest addition to the Pitbull line, the Pitbull Bark. This ball features the same core as the other Pitbull but is wrapped with the same cover base featured in the bite but the added some additive to create the Composite Fang Max. The cover provides more down lane reaction to the ball. Another terrific addition to the DV8 line is dynamicore. The Bark is the first ever DV8 to provide that technology. So you can get more carry out of the ball!
I punched this ball with a 45 x 3" x 70 layout. Usually I tend to put more weak layouts on the stronger ball to avoid the ball to burn up too fast but for this one I decided to get the max out of it.
On the lane, this ball is a monster. This ball hooks a ton. I was surprise that the ball doesn't burn up even with stronger layout. I was even more surprised to see so much continuation I can get in the pins. Compared to the Bite, I needed to move to boards left with my feet and one with me eyes because the ball is so much stronger on the backend. When I switched to the Poison, I had to move two boards right with my feet and 1 with my eyes to be able to get to the pocket. The Bark offers earlier roll, so I can cross more boards. When I compared the ball with a pearl one, I had to move four boards right with my feet and two with my eyes to be able to hit the pocket with the Hitman Enforcer. I know, those two balls are not in the same ballpark, but I wanted to compare it with something pearl!
The ball comes with a 1000 grit finish on it but don't be afraid to adjust the surface because this cover is versatile. For the speed dominants like myself, some surface can be added. I played a tournament with a 500 grit on it and the ball was still not burning up. For people with less speed, you can adjust the cover to 2000 or 3000 grits to get more length. You can even put some polish on the ball if you want it more flippy and this ball looks really nice with some polish on it ??.

Will this be a good ball for the national bowling tournament.

10/30/2018 - By

Have an answer to this question?


Yes, this could work well in the national tournament if the lanes are very oily. This is ideal for heavier oil so it will not work in the later games as well because it needs more oil to work correctly.

How often should the ball be cleaned and what ball cleaner is recommended for this ball?

Have an answer to this question?


You can clean it after every game if you'd like. Any cleaner would work just fine for your bowling ball.
