Bottom Line:

The Rumor is true!!!

After practicing with the DV8 Rumor for the first few frames, I have to say that this has been the most impressive arsenal of the DV8 line I have used, and has become my immediate favorite because the Rumor has a smooth, continuous, consistent motion to the pocket where you can keep the ball in front of you, or you can follow the path where the lanes have been opened up. This can be your starter benchmark, or ball to finish with.

Great Place to Start

I have what you would call just a standard high pin drilling on my DV8 Rumor. CG about an inch below the ring finger and pin about an inch above the ring finger. This is a great ball to be the first out of the bag. It is a great ball for medium to slightly dry lanes, and you'll know from the first good shot you make where the lanes are going to take you. This is a good consistent ball the gets through the heads easily, but it hooks early enough to maintain good control. It is very controllable on the back of the lanes, and it drives through the pins very well. It keeps them nice and low, and I get a good bit of side to side action on light hits as well. If someone is looking for a good bench mark ball, look no further because DV8 has the best with the Rumor.

Bottom Line:

Controllable rumor

Here is the new serie in remplacement of the Deviant serie, the Rumor. The Rumor features the new Rumor medium RG core abs the new deception pearl coverstock. The ball is designed for medium oil lane conditions.

I drilled mine with a pin up 70x4"x40. Because of the medium RG core, the ball gives an heavy roll in the midlane. The reaction and the colors of the ball reminds me one of my favorite ball, the Yeti Untamed. I really like that king of reaction because it controls the backend and the reaction is easier to predict. On the lanes, I play the Rumor 2 boards right with my feet and 1 board right with my eyes of the Creed. The reason is the coverstock of the Creed that is stronger and has more backend. Compared to the freakshow flip, I play the Rumor one board with my feet and one board with me eye left. Compared to the Black Quantum, I play the Rumor in the same area. The difference is in the shape. The Rumor rolls earlier and is more continuous in the back end. When the Black Quantum reacts too strong an leaves 4 pin, I just switch to the Rumor and I stand at the same place and I hit the pocket.

If you have more speed, you can pad the ball with a 2000 or a 1000 grit abralon and the ball will offer you more roll in the midlane. You'll be able to use it on heavier or longer partern. Because the medium RG core, the ball will always gives you an heavy roll in the midlane and a controllable backend.

To conclude, if you wanna have a really controllable and strong pearl ball, the Rumor is your ball of choice.
