What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

The original Nightmare was extremely strong and early rolling for me. I was expecting the Brutal Nightmare to get more length with a much stronger backend reaction using the same layout.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

This ball is an absolute train on the backend of the lane! The ball gets through the heads well, makes a pronounced read in the mid lane and took a left turn on the backend. Talk about opening the lane up!

For me, this is the best ball that DV8 has created up to this point. I believe all styles of bowlers will benefit from this ball. Low rev players will love the angle they can create from outside, tweeners will be able to play multiple lines and crankers will be able to move as far left as they need and this thing will rip back. Don't sleep on the Brutal Nightmare... I know the pins won't!
