Ball Motion

Finished with Royal Shine, the Dude skids easily through the front and mid-lane revving hard on the backend providing a strong and continuous motion on the backend. The Class 4F coverstock has the right muscle with plenty of length and backend flip on medium-oily to light oil lane conditions.

Reaction Setup

The DV8 Dude can be drilled using the standard drilling techniques developed for bowling balls with symmetric cores.

Ball Maintenance

To reduce oil absorption and remove dirt from the surface of the ball, clean your ball with a cleaner designed for reactive bowling balls.

We warrant that they’ll be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of purchase.
