Threw it back to back on a medium to heavy house shot with my Critical Theory. The Theory is drilled almost the same layout but pin down whereas I have the Nightmare's pin higher up for more length.

The Nightmare isn't always stronger than the CT (Critical Theory), just in heavier or longer oil it seems to be. Through the mids and onto the drier boards, the CT seems to recover more, however when I throw a much deeper line (across the 12 or deeper) the Nightmare picks up quicker and makes a bigger move than the CT can.

I bought the Nightmare specifically for longer/heavier sport patterns and replaced my older Theory with it which so far seems like an appropriate choice. The way DV8 markets, I wasn't going to be surprised if it was several boards stronger than the CT in all situations but that's not the case (it's actually a board or two weaker when playing the outside of our THS).

Overall if you're shooting very heavy oil, this seems like a good ball that will actually read and move in it, but I don't think I would buy it if it were going to be my only ball because I found it more difficult to control in the lighter oil than any of my other balls.
