Rude Dude

Available July 16, 2014.

Ball Motion

Finished with Royal Compound, the Rude Dude skids easily through the front and midland revving hard on the backend providing a strong and continuous hook motion. The Class 7G coverstock has just the right attitude on medium to oily lane conditions.

Reaction Setup

The DV8 Rude 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.


Look. We don’t screw around. DV8 bowling balls have been manufactured to the highest standards of workmanship and material. We warrant that they’ll be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of purchase. We agree to repair or replace the ball you bought if at any time during the warranty period it’s found to be defective in material or workmanship.
