Get ready to make some noise with the new DV8 Ruckus bowling ball!

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/Royal Compound)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Luckily I had a few friends that had already seen this ball go down the lane so I knew what to expect.

DV8 continues their reputation for strong balls in the upper performance category with the Ruckus. I used a pretty simple layout that I think is pretty common all over the country. The stronger drilling angle with a 5" pin to PAP should showcase what the Ruckus was designed to do. This layout combined with the Hybrid cover and stronger core should give me a really strong look a little earlier then normal with a good amount of continuation down lane.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
WOW!! The new Ruckus from DV8 means business on medium to heavy volumes of oil.

You can tell this ball wants to tear through something as soon as it hits the lanes. The Hybrid cover and core combo gets this ball into a super strong roll earlier then we have seen from previous releases. In the middle is where I saw this ball shine. As it transitioned out of the front part of the lane it just dug in an did not stop. As long as I found oil early to help push this ball, I could throw it as far right as I wanted and it recovered every time and hit the pins with authority.

I know that we are all very used to seeing higher end DV8 balls hook but they changed the part of the lane you get the reaction on this ball which I think will compliment their current ball line very nicely.
