Two New Performance Balls Introduced by 900Global

Along with news that Chris and Linda Barnes will be representing 900 Global comes news of two new balls from the San Antonio, Texas company. The Blue /Silver /Steel Respect Coverstock, 79 Alert™ Hybrid, is finished to 1500 Grit, then Polished. Powering the Respect is the Tetra™ Symmetric Core, like the Prime product line Moxie, which is also a hybrid.

900 Global’s first manufactured ball, the Break™,
really put them on the map. Global’s new Break Down features a Bright Blue S70™ Solid coverstock which has an impressive history (and even a USBC Open Championship All Events Record), and with the modified Break™ Asymmetric core, you’ll finally be able to use it later in tournament blocks. A significantly raised RG and lower differential is designed to provide more length and less flare, all the while keeping the fabled S70™ on hand to provide that perfect friction-to-backend ratio everyone loves. The new Break Down is finished to 4000 grit with the “T” Neat pad.

DV8 Unwraps The Thug Unruly and Diva Divine

DV8 Thug Unruly will be knocking on the door, maybe trying to bust it down, on January 28, 2015.  The new DV8 solid reactive ball has the Thug Low RG Core wrapped in Class 13G Reactive Solid Coverstock. Finishing Steps include 500; 2,000 Siaair Micro Pad. The updated cover and slightly smoother cover prep to the Rukus Feud

Ignore the pink, like the Diva before it this ball should be divine. DV8’s new Diva Divine contains the Diva Core with Class 7G Reactive Hybrid Coverstock where the Diva used 6G Reactive solid, highly polish, the Divine adds the (hybrid) middle ground to the Diva line. Finishing Steps 500; 4,000 Siaair Micro Pad.

Ebonite's New High Performance Ball for 2015

Ebonite’s newest HP introduction, the Code of Honor, is a Black/Orange /Blue RCS 5.0 solid reactive coverstock finished 500/3000 Abralon. Wrapping a CB-2 Asymmetric core like Pivot, Pivot Point and Honor balls, the Code of Honor adds a solid cover to the high performance line. Core numbers (15#- 2.48 RG, .049 RG Differential) should provide a strong change of direction downlane and pin punishing continuation.
