This nightmare is the worst yet! Haunt your competitors for eternity with the DV8 Endless Nightmare!

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 6 1/2"
Dual Angle Layout - 70 x 6 1/2" x 20
Balance Hole - n/a

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (500/1500 Grit Siaair)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
This is one of my favorite layouts to use on stronger balls that I dont want to read the pattern too early. I used similar layouts on balls like the Hell Raiser Revenge and Aura.

This layout should give me more push through the front part of the lane with a smooth transition and a good move down lane. The Endless Nightmare is supposed to be the strongest DV8 ball to date which means this thing is going to boogie. We have seen some of the strongest balls of the last year or so come from DV8 and the Endless Nightmare adds to those.

Also as a note, we always test balls with their out of box (OOB) finish. This allows us to always compare balls with the finish the manufacturer suggests it to be used at. In some cases we know that the finish is not ideal for the bowler style or the lane condition we bowl on but in an effort to show balls evenly we always use the OOB finish.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Holy Hook!

Shortly after we threw this ball I was speaking to someone at DV8 and told them, "Every time I write a review and say this is the strongest ball I have ever thrown, you come out with something that hooks more."

Absolutely sick how much this ball hooks. If you are looking for something for heavier volumes or if you need a little help from the ball to get a strong ball motion, the Endless Nightmare is the ball for you.

Amazingly, DV8 was able to still create a little push before the ball starts hooking. I was able to get the ball through the heads with ease before the crazy strong mid-lane and down lane movement started. As you can see from our video I was able to open up the lane and create a ton of area with this ball. Of course if I was going to use this ball in league I would smooth out the cover or even polish it but out of the box.

As I have said with every single DV8 ball release, you have to check this ball out. It will not only compliment every other DV8 ball out there but will amaze you at the same time.
