How did the ball roll, react?
The DV8 Nightmare is the most hooking DV8 ball to date. I chose to drill my Nightmare to go a little longer while still looking for a very aggressive backend reaction. The Nightmare has a very strong reaction even on Medium to Heavy Oil lane conditions. The extra length was a nice added factor because I don't want to see the ball hook too early with such an aggressive backend reaction. I was able to play right in the track area of the lane and have great length with an sharp backend reaction. As the lanes started to break down, I was able to move left and still had a aggressive backend reaction without early hook. This told me the ball was not using a lot of energy early and had a lot of energy late.

What I liked about this ball:
I really liked the aggressive back end reaction of this ball. It had a lot of energy when going through the pins. It seems to carry well. Even when the lanes started to transition, I was able to move left and still have great carry. With such of an aggressive backend, if I missed right, the ball recovered powerfully. Over all I was very pleased with this ball.

DV8 continues to come out with bigger and better balls. I am always looking forward to the new stuff they come out with.
