Believe the Hype….AGAIN!!!

I am very proud to introduce to you the newest addition to the DV8 line, the DV8 Troublemaker Pearl. Like its original predecessor, the DV8 Troublemaker Pearl is designed for bowlers of the new bowling revolution…2-Handed Bowlers and bowlers who do not use a thumb. Like the original Troublemaker, the ball has the same symmetrical core, but doesn’t roll like a typical symmetrical ball. I put a similar layout in the Troublemaker Pearl to compare the ball reactions with a simple stacked layout with the pin and the CG in alignment. The ball reaction is simply amazing. You get a little bit more length out of the ball, but the ball reaction is amazing! Pins just don’t jump around, but still seem to collapse in on themselves. The difference which sets this ball apart from other balls is its uniquely large core design. As I said before, I am a HUGE fan of larger core bowling balls because they typically roll much better for bowlers with higher speeds and rev rates. The ball works much better on medium to heavy oil and compliments the original Troublemaker very well. For those of us that use a thumb, the new Troublemaker Pearl is a dynamic compliment to the original, giving any bowler at various levels a unique bowling ball experience. For 2-handed and 2-finger bowlers, this is another incredible ball that compliments the original and is definitely a must have in your bag. DV8 keeps on creating innovation in bowling equipment and has done it again with the new DV8 Troublemaker Pearl. If you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling!!!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Length and backend

Love this ball! I drilled mine with max length and hook potential. This ball even on fresh I can either play down the 10 board or move inside and still has enough energy to make it backs. This ball quickly became my benchmark ball! Highly recommend this ball to anyone looking to play multiple angles with one ball. So happy with it so far! Can’t wait to use it at the PBA level! Recommend this ball for every level player
