Great name for this ball 900 Global Dream Big. Has all you need in a Matte finish gives me that early roll in the front without losing the strong move in the backend.

About the Bowler

DREAM BIG
Drilling: 5 x 4 x 3
Finish: Box Finish, 4000 Grit
Speed – 15.5-16.5 MPH
PAP – 5 1/4 & 7/8 up

By far the strongest ball in the 900 Global line and that I have thrown in a long time. I am not always a fan of Asymmetric balls, but this ball really reads the lane well for me especially in a little bit of oil and then once it starts to make the move it keeps going (lots of continuation and retains energy), which you don’t see often with a stronger ball. I think that’s the most impressive attribute for me. The 79 Alert Solid Coverstock at 4000 surface out of the box should be plenty of surface, but you can add to it for lower Rev-rates, higher ball speeds and if you are bowling on something with a lot of volume. On your THS, you should be able to get inside in the oil where other balls won’t normally hook, if you swing it out it doesn’t over react and should still have plenty of recovery and hitting power to finish that STRIKE.

This ball is flat out amazing! If you are looking for a ball that will read early and have a ton of continuation this is the ball. Having problems on your heavier oil.....here is your answer.

I have used this ball on several conditions with one 300 in the bank! I am a huge fan of the Dream On but when this ball came out I needed to have it!

As a bowler we all experience the flat ten/seven pin, because we miss inside and the ball the glides through the oil. This ball will read that miss and kick out the corner like no other.

This ball is drilled with pin above ring cg kicked to the right and mass bias 2 1/2 inches right of the thumb.. I hit it with a 4000 wet sand and this ball is amazing. Ball works great on longer higher volume patterns.. Ball is very aggressive going thru the pins. If you need a heavy oil ball this is your ball.

This ball was really great addition to our lineup for this year. We needed a strong solid asymmetric ball that would be able to cut through heavy oil and still provide a strong motion down lane and maintain continuation through the pins. I was looking forward to having this for flatter, heavy oil conditions. I was actually surprised that not only did I have a ball that was great on heavy oil, but I have something that will still work on higher volume THS or a first ball out of the bag for a game or so on a THS. Not a ball for anything less than medium-heavy. With an early midlane read, this ball will tell you when its time to put it away. The Dream Big fits nicely above the Dream On. Now there is a complete line from top to bottom in the Engineer Series. If you find yourself needing something with a little kick on the backend on heavier oil, then the Dream Big is your ball!

About the Bowler

The Dream Big is a great big block ball that likes oil! This is the most hooking ball in my bag. This ball is part of the Engineering Series in the 900 Global line. I have my Big Dream drilled with the pin under the middle finger, cg kicked out 45 degrees this layout has a smooth ball motion through the front and mid part of the lane with a nice continuous backend. I like to use this ball as a compliment to the Black Ops. The Dream Big has 3 boards more hook than Black Ops. What more could you want? Get some "Performance for your game". Get the Dream Big!

The 900 Global Dream Big is your heavy oil ball! On typical house shot, this ball will allow you to comfortably play deeper inside than normal and still carry. Gets through the heads clean and has a strong read in the midlane; extremely reliable off the breakpoint and continuous through the pins. Definitely the strongest ball in my arsenal! If you have a Dream On and want more...the Dream Big is just what you're lookin' for!

About the Bowler

What I like about the Dream Big is the hook. However I'm still able to get a nice controllable arc in the heavier oil patterns. For me I know when I get onto a pattern where there is more oil I can ball up from my Black Ops which still gives me a smooth arc and gets down lane but with the Dream Big it starts up quick and gives me more overall hook and a better look on the heavier conditions. I am also able to move left with my feet at the start of league and this ball allows me to keep my same line for most of the night. Only having to make slight adjustments rather than having to make a drastic move with a ball change. If you are looking for something with more overall hook then this is the ball that needs to be in your bag.

Kenneth Bland, Jr. - This ball really hooks! It gets down the lane & just makes a turn towards the pocket from anywhere. It is very hard to through this ball through the breakpoint. This ball loves oil & I love it as well. This ball is great on heavy oil & can be used with ease on any heavy oil pattern.

Review:

The Dream Big was my personally most anticipated release from 900 Global and it didn't fail to live up to expectations. Using the 79 Alert Solid on the Identity Asymmetric core has given us one of the biggest motions available on the market. I used my favorite layout on this monster to compare it to the original Dream and was awarded with 6-8 more boards of hook and the ability to handle a ton more oil in the head and middle part of the lane. If you are looking for "hook in a box" you should definitely give the Dream Big a look.

Comments:
Dream Big. 900 Global's Dream Big utilizes the Identity Asymmetric core and the 79 Alert Solid Cover. This
ball really holds it line through the midlane and really gives you a steep angle on pocket entry. If you're looking
for a ball that needs to turn the corner on medium to heavy volume patterns, then look no further than the Dream Big.
I was able to play more in the post area on my THS and at no point in time did I worry about this ball getting back
to the pocket. There was a few times i sailed the ball out past my break point and the Dream big seemed to have no
problem motoring back to the pocket. If your bag is lacking in the High Performance ball department look no further
and get yourself a Dream Big. Big Core, Big Cover, Big Hook, Dream Big.

About the Bowler

This was the first 900 Global ball I had and it sold me immediately. For not being a huge fan of asymmetric before this, boy did it change my mind. I had mine drilled pin below the middle finger and it revved early and still had a huge backend. This ball is super versatile and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who bowls on a wide variety of oil patterns. This ball should be in every tournament bowlers bag.

900 Global Dream Big
I drilled mine 45x4x35

This ball is very clean through the heads for heavy oil ball. It has strong mid lane roll and strong back end roll. It is about 4 boards stronger than dream on. This ball works good on house league shots and flat sport patterns. It is a very versatile ball and will open up lane on longer, tighter patterns.

The Dream Big is the perfect addition to the Dream line. The strongest ball in the lineup provides the bite needed in the heavy oil. When the Dream On just isn't giving you enough grip, the Dream Big will grab on and make the turn. I've been able to use the Dream Big on the heavier volumes to open up the lane when others are struggling to get a consistent reaction. If you bowl on sport or THS with heavier oil conditions, you need to have this in your bag.

About the ball…
The newest addition to 900 Global’s high-end Engineer series is the Dream Big. This ball uses the 79 Alert Solid coverstock, where the previous releases in this line, the Dream and Dream On, used versions of the 74 Alert cover. It features the same Identity Asymmetric core as the two previous Dreams.
My opinions…
This ball is a must have for the heavy oil. It reads the mid lane with a strong aggressive arc to the pocket. The Dream Big reads the mid lane earlier than the Dream On and has 3-5 more boards of hook. I have used this on a typical house shot as well as sport shots and it is one of the first balls out of my bag for the longer or higher volume oil patterns. For those of you with a lot of hand you will need lots of oil to use this ball. For the folks with less hand this will be a great ball for the typical house shot, it will give you a strong motion to the pocket without being flippy. This is one of those balls that everyone should have.

The newest addition to the 900 Global HP line is the Dream Big. A solid version with the same core shape as the Dream and Dream On. This ball looks for oil. Earlier than the Dream On, but a smoother shape downlane. Will be better for the player that needs an strong oil ball that will still have some control. The Dream Big is designed for heavier pattern and will excel on them. Slow speeds may need to smooth the surface or even polish to make it more versatile. Also the Dream Big can be used on the heavier part of the wet dry without responding to hard if you miss to the dry. The Dream Big rounds out the Dream line well with 3 different reaction to fit most players needs. 8)

Heavy oil pattern? Low rev rate? Looking for high scores? Well, then the Dream Big is for you! I would recommend this ball for anyone needing a ball that reads the front part of the lane and doesn't skid thru it, but yet the cover doesn't just hook at your big toe either! This ball reads the midlane very well on these patterns and has great continuation through the pins. This is a great combination of core to cover that will help you on any oily to heavy oil THS pattern or sport patterns like the Shark or Badger. This ball will just allow you to bowl on these heavy oil patterns and not let you feel like you have to baby it to get it into a roll. This ball is meant for oily patterns and will do a great job of handling that. So dreaming of high scores on oily lanes? Then Dream Big!! I drilled mine 65 x 5 1/2 x 40. Well done 900 Global!

Dream Big

Drilling: 12 Label with mass 1 1/2 inches right of thumb
Surface: Box
Description: The Dream Big is truly a monster of a ball. The solid 79 alert cover on the identity core really taps the potential of the cores motion. With good motion in the mids and a killer back end on longer patterns the Dream Big is a fantastic ball for your shark like patterns. I personally do not throw many strong asymmetric balls without a bit of polish but the Dream Big has no problem keeping its energy with box surface. With a bit of polish the ball becomes even more versatile for more open ended patterns.

I was aware how much my DREAM ON (Hybrid Version) hooked so I drilled a very smooth layout for this hook monster..... it's scary how much this ball would hook if I drilled a stronger one. I kept this ball with the 4000 grit finish just like new and boy this ball has some serious mid lane reaction. The DREAM BIG has surprise ease through the front part of the lane for a solid cover while retaining a strong backend reaction. It will work great on today's house conditions, and will be one of your first balls out of the bag on those challenge and sport patterns too. The DREAM BIG will need a medium to high volume oil to maximize its potential. Every bowler needs one of these, but of course that's only if you want superior performance for YOUR game..... 900 Global staff member Greg Thomas

About the Bowler

The Dream Big, a big heavy oil ball, fast speed, medium speed and slow speed players
will have no trouble with oil volume with this ball. The Dream Big retains its energy for the backend of the lane where you need the power. A lot of heavy oil balls lose energy in the mid part of the lanes the Dream Big retains it. The cover and core match up perfectly for heavy oil. With my slower ball speed at 15.2 I drilled mine 2-½ inches pin to pap, 6-½ inches psa to pap and a 1-½ inch pin buffer. For those bowlers that can’t get enough power on oily lanes the Dream Big will do the job.

This is definitely the strongest ball now in the 900 Global lineup. The Dream On used to be the biggest hooking ball in my bag, but the Dream Big is even bigger! If you have a heavy oil condition to deal with, the Dream Big will read the lane with ease. The most impressive trait about this ball for me is the fact that it doesn't overreact off the spot down lane or pick up too early. For such a strong ball reaction, this ball is extremely controllable down lane which is something that I don't see very often. As compared to the Dream On, the Dream Big is a couple boards stronger overall, but the down lane motion is a bit more subtle due to the solid Alert Coverstock. The OOB finish at 4000 has plenty of teeth to read through the oil, but it can be lowered quite easily to pick up even more for those with lower rev rates or higher ball speeds.

Summary: This new addition in the Dream line up, the dream big, is the strongest cover in the series to date. I drilled this dream big the same as I drilled my Dream and Dream on which is the pin above the bridge with the cg kicked about 20 degrees and the mass bias is to the right of my thumb. This ball for me was 3- 4 boards stronger than the Dream on. This ball provides a strong arc with very strong continuation through the pins. I felt like I could basically throw this ball as far right as I wanted to and never worry that it would not get back to the pocket.
900 global did a great job with this ball and the color scheme is very eye catching. This is another must have product from 900 Global.

Me on a THS: I normally throw about board 15 to 7.

Drilling: Stacked drilling with the pin high and right of the ring finger.

The most aggressive cover stock of the DREAM series yet! To say this ball is aggressive in the oil is an understatement; the ball is a monster in pink. It reads the mid-lane early with a strong roll and snaps hard on the back end. However, the snap is not like one with a polished/pearl surface. It is a strong arcing motion that almost looks like the ball is setting, but still covering a significant amount of real estate. The ball drives so hard through the pins that you can almost see the 9-pin get pushed forward on the pin deck. It is truly a sight to see. You don’t get to see a ball move through the pins like that very often.

I scored well with my initial use of this ball, but think I am going to bring up the surface to 4000-grit in order to tame its ridiculous aggression. This ball will hook on anything. The surface will create significant motion on even the wettest conditions.

I highly recommend this bowling ball for a league player and a competitor alike. It is very versatile and easy to use for all skill levels.
