900 Global X has a Matte finish at 2500 grit very easy to control. Solid cover makes it smooth in the front great ball for that tough pattern.

900 Global X is what every bowler is looking for in a benchmark ball. The ball is clean through the front part of the lane, picks up a roll in the mid lane, and has a very smooth continuous motion in the back end. The X has become the first ball out of my bag every time I've since drilling it.

The 900Global X will be my benchmark ball on both THS and mid length/volume spot shots. This ball is very predictable with the 2500 matte finish. It reads the mid-lane great and has a beautiful backend reaction with great continuation through the pins.
Well done 900Global its a keeper

PERSONAL BEST WITH 900 GLOBAL X!!!
3 CONSECUTIVE 800 SERIES, ON 3 DIFFERENT SHOTS, IN 2 HOUSES, IN 24 HOURS!
4/5/2016 Western Bowl - Bill JaNsa Work Service 298, 299, 224, 822
4/6/2016 Mockingbird Lanes - Wednesday Night Ten Pins 238, 279, 300, 817

- The S57™ Solid coverstock provides consistent and predictable friction.
- The symmetric Pod™ core produces controlled flare and a smooth transition.
- Use the X on medium length and volume patterns.

The Tour Preferred line has quickly established itself as the premier choice of tournament bowlers. Predictability and control are always at a premium on tournament conditions. The X perfectly achieves both of these attributes.

The low RG/ Low Differential Pod™ symmetric core provides early revving action to smooth out the motion at the breakpoint, while the S57 shell and NEAT “A” finish provide the ideal amount of traction to combat all medium lane conditions.

X

Coverstock: S57™ Solid
Finish: NEAT “A” 2500Grit
Color: Black
Core: Pod™ Symmetric
Flare Potential: 3-4″
Radius of gyration 2.49
Differential .035
The latest 900 Global ball in the Tour Preferred Series is called the X. All I can say is that it has a perfect meaning because this ball sure can string some strikes! This low RG ball with a medium differential is a great addition to the 900 Global lineup. The X has a stable controlling arc to the pins and the cover is a vast improvement to Chemical X with an overall stronger ball motion. This ball is a must have have and it has a nice price point to the consumer. This ball works great on the wet dry conditions you might see at your local bowling center and also performs on those medium to short oil sport conditions too..... Great addition to the 900 Global line...... so let's add some Performance to your game and throw some strikes with the new X.

About the Bowler


900 Global has really been coming out with some great equipment lately, so this ball is yet again another great addition to the line up. I put my favorite layout on this one, pin up above bridge and cg about 2.5 inches to the right of center of grip with a small hole about 2 inches past VAL. PAP is 4.25 over and .25 up. even with the pin up and 5 inches away from PAP this ball reads the mid lane and has so much continuation on medium conditions its sick. I really like to use mine just after they start to break down, it allows me to stay in the same zone so I don't have to make the big jump left with a stronger piece. This ball is really good on a THS or the medium to light patterns when you need to control the lane. ball takes surface adjustments well but for me the box finish seems to be the best. 900 Global staffer, Tim Janz, Beaver Dam, WI

900 Global hit the nail on the head with this benchmark ball. The X is an awesome addition to the tour preffered series with the S57 Solid coverstock. If you love the Chemical X, the X is defiantly a great addition in your arsenal. I found that on the THS this ball has more pop off the spot and backend then the Chemical X. The X is tamer off the spot than the Black Ops but it is very complimentary as it has similar shape. It is great in fresh and very predictable as the patterns breakdown. I took this ball to State with me and it performed fantastic.
My X is drilled with a 45x4x35 layout with a hole 1 ½ down on the VAL. I also kept it out of the box finish at 2500 grit. The X will have a home in my arsenal and my go to for predictable reaction. This ball won’t get you in trouble!

The newest addition to the Tour Preferred line for 900 Global - the X! This ball is the new benchmark ball in the lineup for me. With its S57 solid coverstock matched up with the Pod Symmetric core, this ball will read the midlane extremely well and have good continuation through the pins. Nothing too fancy or super aggressive about this ball, and that is something that I will use very often in league and tournament play. Everyone needs a good benchmark ball in their bag, and if you are looking for something to judge the rest of your arsenal off of, then the 900 Global X may be the ball for you!

About the Bowler

After throwing my new 900 Global X, it quickly became one of my go to balls regardless if it's on fresh or later in your set.
As it says on the 900 Global web site, "The S57™ Solid coverstock provides consistent and predictable friction." and that's exactly what it does. If you like to keep your line in front of you like I do, you can play more direct and get great control off the spot that is predictable and is continuous through the pins. If you need to open the lane a little you can be a little more aggressive with your hand and there is no worry about losing any energy. This is what makes this ball a must have and could possibly be a benchmark ball for anybody.

About the Bowler

The 900 Global X is a pure benchmark ball. Different bowling styles equal different
types of bowling balls as a benchmark ball. The X fits all styles. The X is very readable
from start to finish, adjusting to lane changes with this ball is a breeze, very small adjustments is all you’ll need. Start the night off with this one and make your decisions
from there. Adjust the cover to match your style of play. I drilled mine at 40 X 4 X 40
and it makes medium conditions easy. I’m between a tweener and a stroker with a 15 mph ball speed. Get one.

About the Bowler

Drilled my Global X pin down with the cg stacked under the Bridge. This ball reads the Midlane a little earlier and with alot more continuation on the backend than the Chemical X. This ball can be used on almost all sport or house patterns because of its way to help smooth out wet-dry conditions and through transition . Another great addition to my 900GLOBAL line of equipment. Bring performance to your game go 900Global.

About the Bowler

Ball: 900 Global l X
Drilling: 4 x 4x4
Pap: 4 3/4 x 7/8 up
Finish: Box Finish
Lane Condition: 40 Foot THS
Summary: The X was drilled with the with the ring finger through the pin and the CG stacked with no extra hole.
The ball comes with a 2500 grit factory finish. After a couple trips down the lane, I quickly realized that this ball would be my new benchmark ball. Drilled identical to a Chemical X that I have this ball definitely is stronger in the midlane with stronger continual backend motion. I have used this ball on a variety of conditions with success. On flatter patterns it blends the pattern creating a smooth continuous motion which is really controllable. This is great for those that have a hard time controlling the fresh on a flatter pattern. On house patterns, it helps blend out the wet dry giving a more predictable ball reaction.
This is a must have release and another great addition to the Tour check line.

About the Bowler

My specs 45 x 5 1/2 x 45 with extra hole. Ball Speed 15.5, rev rate 375, PAP 5 11/16 x 5/16 up, ball surface 2500(A-Pad). Bowlers it's tourney season! I can't think of a better ball to have in your bag than the 900Global X. Ball is clean thru the front and has a lot forgiveness in the midlane. A very good benchmark ball to have, especially when bowling tournaments on unfamiliar patterns. If you have chemical X, this ball will be cleaner through the front with more energy on backend. I will be taking one with me too USBC Nationals this year. Pick one up today, you will not be disappointed.

I am truly amazed at what 900 Global has done with the new X. I can't get this ball out of my hand let alone my bag. It is a must have for anyone's arsenal. This is truly what I have been looking for out of the Chemical X. The X offers a bit more midlane read and quite a bit more backend motion compared to the Chemical X. When you couldn't get deep with the Chemical X, the X allows you to move deeper to continue to follow the transition. I can't remember the last time I could use only one ball for 3 games on a THS. The X is the perfect benchmark ball. Not only is it great on THS, it performs very well on your toughest sport patterns. If you need something cleaner through the heads and a more angular backend, bring in the Dark Matter. The X allows for plenty of mistake room and also gives you the same predictability you had with the Chemical X. 900 Global hit the nail on the head with this one!
