Your opponents thought the Nightmare was over, but this new one is BRUTAL!

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5"
Dual Angle Layout - 65* x 5" x 65*
Balance Hole - N/A

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (500 grit Siaair, Rough Buff)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
With it all new Class 8 Hybrid Reactive cover I was fully expecting to see all the strength of the original Nightmare with a more skid/snap ball motion.

I drilled the new Brutal Nightmare identical to mu Nightmare so I could see the actual differences in ball motion. With this layout I am expecting to see a big reaction downlane when the ball finds friction with a strong but smooth look in the heads.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
WOW! I have been so impressed with the last few releases from DV8 and the Brutal Nightmare kept that going.

This ball is a beast. You may have to get used to the way it looks going down the lane as DV8 is not shy from using bright colors on their equipment. Once you do you will be very impressed by the ball motion of the Brutal and the way that it compliments the other balls in their line.

Just as advertised and expected the Brutal Nightmare is smoother off my hand then the Nightmare was and the Rough Buff finished Hybrid cover gives you a ton of recovery downlane. I swear I could throw this ball as far right as I wanted it would just popped off the break point. It was super strong down lane without sacrificing the smooth but aggressive motion off my hand and through the mid lane.

All in all another winner from DV8.

Tonight We Bowl!
