DV8 combines their Composite Bite coverstock with a new lower RG and high differential asymmetric core to produce the Pitbull bowling ball. This ball offers max hook even when faced with the heaviest oil conditions. When you need an aggressive ball in the fight make sure you have a Pitbull in your bag.
Bowler Specs- Ball Speed: 17-18, Rev Rate: 500, Layout: Full Roller; pin out 3.5 inches, Pattern: House
To say the Pitbull adds a new dimension of hook to the DV8 line would be an understatement. I had this ball at least 4 boards more than my grudge with the same layout, but the same shot shape. The Pitbull is a great ball when you need help getting the ball to work in the mids and yet still be continuous at the pocket, or when you need the ball to control the breakpoint more than your big pearl. The biggest positive had from the Pitbull is that as hard as it worked in the mids, it didn't burn up as it got to the pins. I had no issues getting the Pitbull through the fronts even at box finish of 1000, and I also loved it with some polish, allowing the ball to be a little longer through the mids and a little sharper on the backend. I recommend this ball to all bowlers, especially those with higher ball speeds and those with lower rev rates.

I've owned every DV8 ball that has been made, and this ball is by far the strongest of them all. The pin, mass bias, and CG are stacked straight on my ball and I had it drilled pin about one inch above and to the right of the ring finger with everything else stacked in line below. It's a 3 inch pin ball. I haven't found a shot in my area, yet, that the Pitbull couldn't cut through. It picks up in the midlane, but does a great job of not burning out. It drives through the pins and packs quite a punch when it flies into the pocket. If you are having trouble dealing with oil, the DV8 Pitbull is definitely for you. It will cut through it and destroy the pins. This ball is truly as mean as it sounds.

The Pit bull is very aggressive and has continuous motion.
I drilled the pit bull very strong and made this a specialty ball for heavy oil. This drilling and this ball rolls up pretty early in the midlane. I have used this ball a few weeks on the Shark. This ball is the perfect reaction for the first few games on fresh.

Dangerous Hook! Bites and doesn't let go!
I have owned every DV8 for the past year. This is by far the strongest ball in my arsenal!! Unfortunately, in my area, I have not experienced enough oil to actually see how long I can use this ball in a set. Soon, on my PBA league, we will be bowling on the Shark ~ I am sure this ball will match up perfectly!! I have used this on a 47 ft flat pattern and the midland reaction is INSANE! When this ball grabs the lane, it doesn't give up! The continuous motion through the pins is quite impressive.
