Mess up your competition with the DV8 Vandal Smash! The Vandal Smash bowling ball pairs the Vandal Asymmetric core with the Composite Flip Solid coverstock to provide an awesome all-purpose ball motion. This ball has a more powerful hook motion when facing lane oil and it has a backend flip that gives it more total hook than its predecessor, the original Vandal, specifically on heavier oil.

The Vandal Smash. What can I say about this ball. The Vandal Pearl is my favorite mall for medium conditions but I found it to be not enough when there is hevier oil volumes.
The Vandal Smash is the answer to that. The Vandal Smash gives room for error on the erranr shots to the right . It will recover with dependability . The Vandal Smash is earlier than the original Vandal and you don't lose that strong hook motion on the heavire patterns. The Smash compliments the original nicely and whn other balls are too strong.

This ball is the first ball out of my bag!!!! Very clean through the front part of the lane and absolutely devastating in the backend!! For me being a two handed bowler, I changed the surface to 2000 polished in order to get to ball a little more down lane. By doing this, it is actually a step down from my original Vandal. Even polished, I can still play different parts of the lane without giving up ball reaction nor pin carry. This ball is another DV8 masterpiece that is versitile for any type of bowler!!
Outstanding all around ball !!!
The DV8 Vandal Smash is a benchmark ball in my bag! The Vandal Smash rolls earlier than my Vandal but is still strong and controllable on the backend and maintains energy through the pins. I can use the Vandal Smash on all types of oil patterns with success! It is very versatile with more overall hook than the original Vandal.
The Vandal Smash is an awesome ball. Love the original Vandal and this ball is just as good as the first. With its 500/4000 Siaair pad finish it gives you a different ball reaction than the original Vandal. It picks up the lane sooner but still gives you great back end to drive through the pins like a train. I love the Vandal line and if you have the original Vandal, the Vandal Smash should be right next to it in your bag. They make for a great duo!!
