COMMENTS
Likes: Even with the stronger drilling, I can use this ball for most any condiditon
Dislikes: None
I have used this ball on multiple conditions, and it has a strong recovery down lane. It doesn't hook early even with the strong cover on this ball. I can use this ball on the fresh oil to help break down the pattern, and keep moving left to stay in the oil. Even with the stronger drilling I used, the ball doesn't read early and is very clean through the front part of the lane. I keep the ball at the box 4000 finish to help cut through the heavier oil and smooth out the reaction. This ball is the strongest overall reaction in the DV8 line to date. Another positive to this ball is that I don't have to play a big looping shot left of the 4th arrow, and I can keep my angles closed. If you are looking for a heavy oil ball, then the Nightmare is a great choice!
