    The Dark Moss is a great ball once the lanes break down for me. It still has very nice control and I'm able to read the lane with it also. This ball hooks a little more for me over the Original Wolverine. But for me I can read the mid lane a little better. It has the 4K Fast factory finish. I have not changed the surface as of yet. To me it a great ball when the lanes start to dry out. For me bowling a couple 5 man team leagues...usually the mid 2nd game into the 3rd game this ball is usually in my hands. Still has a very nice back end so your not afraid to move in a little deeper get the ball out to the track, and watch it come back! Excellent come back in the Wolverine series!

    THE DARK MOSS LANE CONDITION Length: 41' Pattern: THS COMMENTS Drilled 75 x 3 3/8 x 30 same as the blue pearl. Bowled on a variety of THS in different centers, I still received the same shape and motion as the original but with less skid flip due to the 4K finish. It does provide more control with this cover which I feel is a plus because you can add polish to duplicate the 1500 polished finish. I'm able to play the track on the fresh as long it doesn't see friction to soon. Definitely your House Shot killer and dryer conditions. More bang for the buck and the best replacement for the Blue Pearl. #GoGlobal #stormnation #Iambowling Keith Cordy 900 Global Staff Ambassador

    The 900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss features the S70 Pearl Reactive coverstock wrapped around the Lacerate 2.0 Symmetric core. The RG at 15lbs is 2.54 and the differential is .053. This ball fills a gap that I have been looking to fill for quite some time. The Dark Moss is great for any patterns where there is a good amount of friction. The ball is super clean and has a medium response time. For me, this ball is just throw it right and watch it go left. There is no quit in this wolverine. In comparison to the original Wolverine, the Dark Moss hooks a little earlier than the original...maybe about a two to three board difference. If the lane has a friction spot to throw to, this ball will be in its glory.

    The Wolverine Dark Moss similar to it's predecessor with it's core and cover features a different finish at 4k fast. I drilled the Dark Moss pin down to find more control down lane as the original Wolverine was drilled pin up and was a bit too clean for my style. The Dark Moss will be a great option for when the fronts begin to hook early and the lanes get tighter down lane. The higher RG nature of the ball will get it to clear the fronts with ease and the strength of the core and cover will give it plenty of shape off the spot.

    900 Global S70 pearl coverstock Lacerate 2.0 core The core is looks to be a mix/match/new tweak to the cores used in the badger lines. The final shape mixed with this cover combines to make one of the more skid/flip balls I have seen out of 900G. Some have been seeing a smoother reaction, but not me...lots of angle here. I think it is a speed/revs combo for myself. I am more rev dominant and that makes some of my similar mid level pearls do similar things. Step up from my Hyped Pearl, step down from my Phaze 3.

    The 900 Global Wolverine features the S70 Pearl Reactive coverstock wrapped around the Lacerate 2.0 Symmetric core. The RG at 15lbs is 2.54 and the differential is .053. This ball could be the sleeper ball of the year. This ball fills a gap that I have been looking to fill for quite some time. The Wolverine is great for broken down patterns and later in tournament blocks. The ball is super clean and I would categorize the response time as medium...not too quick and not too slow. A lot of people say this ball reminds them of an original HyRoad, but for me the Wolverine is much more controllable and predictable. Where the HyRoad for me had a tendency to miss the spot, the Wolverine starts up a little sooner than the HyRoad and doesn't really get the chance to hydroplane past the breakpoint. If the lane has a friction spot to throw to, this ball will be in its glory.

    NOVA: R2X Hybrid Cover Core: New Ignition Core RG: 2.49 Dif: 0.52 PSA: 0.019 Layout: 45 x 4 1/4 x 30, Speed Dominant, Rev Rate 275-325 PAP: 5 ¾ over 1" up. The NOVA has arrived. A brand to ball with the introduction of the Ignition Core. I absolutely love this ball. There are not very many asymmetrical balls this I seem to match up well with that roll and continue that I like. But the Nova is a big winner. This ball is very round and smooth. It's a motion that I have not seen in a Storm ball before one the I like. The Nova reads the mid lane very well and picks up and just keeps going. It is very smooth and predictable. It does not seem to overreact off the dry and yet can get through the oil as well. The Nova revs up like nothing I've ever thrown picks up and just keeps going. As a pro shop manager/operator this is this most versatile ball on the market. You can adjust surface, play in, play straighter, works on longer shorter patterns as well. The Nova has been the first ball out of my bag since it was released. Great for any style of play!!

The Wolverine is the newest addition to the 900 Global lines. The Wolverine is the newest pearl with a strong backend motion. It has a smooth motion a cleaner through the fronts with a strong motion on the backend. The wolverine is a bit more angular than the Zen what is currently my favorite ball in my bag. I through this with the out of box finish and found for me that it would sometimes overreact on the dry and labor when I got it in some oil. I did not use any sure and now discovered the wolverine seems to blend better with some surface. The wolverine will be a nice addition to any arsenal and can be used with various styles of play.

    I drilled my 900 Global WOLVERINE up 60 x 4.5 x 30. I have hit it with a 2000 abralon pad. Out of box, this got a good ways down the lane before it broke for home. Classic skid/flip reaction. i took my pad to it to smooth it out some and it slowed down the large flip reaction and made it more controllable. I have throw it side by side with my BURNER SOLID, RST-X2, and SPECTRE. Compare to the SPECTRE, the WOLVERINE was more motion in the back end. These two really complimented each other well. BURNER SOLID was early and slower than the WOLVERINE. RST-X2 was also earlier but close to the same strong back end motion of the WOLVERINE. If you are looking for something to get down the lane and really finish on the back, then the WOLVERINE is your ball.

    900 Global Wolverine Ball Review Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the Wolverine and in 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the S70 Pearl Coverstock and comes 1500-grit polish with an RG of 2.540 and a Diff of 0.051. Layout for this ball is 5.5 X 4.5 X 1 I have enjoyed when I am able to get this ball into my hands, but with the bigger balls in front of this ball and the lack of super dry I have at home I don't get to throw this ball as much as I would like too. I keep this ball in my tournament bag and its really good when the lanes start to get burned up. I can see this ball being thrown on a fresher condition with players with more hand. I am on the lower rev rate side and need the stronger balls to see the friction so again this one doesn't get into my hand a lot.

    The Wolverine by 900 Global is the newest addition to the 700 Series. The engine under the hood is the Lacerate 2.0 which is a combination the Honey Badger and Badger core which has been extremely successful in previous 900 Global lines. On the outside is the S70 Pearl Coverstock and with this core/coverstock combination, the Wolverine is designed to be the highest response time ball in the line. I've drilled one so far and think it rolls great. I drilled it with the following layout: 5 x 4. This puts the pin directly above my bridge and I also scratched the surface with 3000 to smooth the response time down just a pinch. I've had the most success with the Wolverine once I need to move left, open my angles, and need a ball to store energy down lane. After my Reality, Proton Physix, and Phaze II start to get lazy, the Wolverine has been a perfect ball to go to. If you feel like you're missing a high-responsive ball that will change direction extremely hard and compliments the asymmetrical balls really well, the Wolverine should be the next ball you drill.

    This may be the most beautiful ball on the market. I didn't plan to drill it originally because I thought I had stuff in the arsenal that was too similar, I was wrong. There was WAY more backend motion than I had expected, it allowed me to move inside late in the blocks get it down there and make the corner. Partnered with my Altered Reality it was literally perfect.. A little sharper than the Altered so when the lanes started getting torched I moved from that to the Wolverine. The Wolverine is the perfect combination of looks and performance! With as well as it is performing on sport shots I believe the Wolverine will be in the bag for a long time.

    The new 900 Global ball is the Wolverine which features the Lacerate 2.0 core with S70 Pearl Reactive coverstock. I drilled mine with a 5 inch pin down under my middle finger. My first impressions were wow that's a lot of backend motion! With the fresh cover I had to cut it with 3000 pad to help slow it down. I compared the Wolverine to the Storm Hyroad Pearl with just a little more midlane motion. 900 Global is making some really good bowling balls these days and the Wolverine is definitely one of them. I have drilled a handful of them at my shop. From Low rev to high rev players. Both have had great success with the Wolverine, mainly in the 2nd, 3rd game and in later blocks of tournaments when they need to get left. Great ball for 900 Global.Brian WatsonStorm Pro Shop Staff

RG • 2.54 Differential • .053 Layout • 70 x 4.25 x 30 Tester PAP • 4 ½ R, 3/8 D Tester Axis Tilt • 12° Tester Rev Rate • 325 Test Pattern • 42' THS (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street 900 Global has cultivated another champion to their 700 Series line with the release of the mighty Wolverine! Out of the box, the combination of Lacerate 2.0 core and S70 Pearl coverstock produced some impressive results for a mid-priced ball. Let's take a closer look at those results on a THS. The Lacerate 2.0 core is a winning combination of the Honey Badger and Badger cores molded into a symmetric core with an added flip block. And that result is a THS bowler's dream! The Lacerate 2.0 rev's smooth with a more relaxed dynamic through the mid-lane so it can store its energy. Whether I played straight up the second arrow early on or moved into 15-18 later in the night, the Lacerate 2.0 exploded its power when the Wolverine came off the pattern. As a straighter and more down-and-in player, I like the comfort the Lacerate 2.0 core provides. It is predictable and smooth in its motion yet powerful when changing direction. I also love how it keeps rolling with authority to kick out that late ten pin even when I know I missed! The S70 Pearl coverstock is by far the right choice for the Wolverine! Being a pearl combined with the Lacerate 2.0 core makes the Wolverine a dangerous weapon! I liked how the S70 clears the heads easily but doesn't over-react in the mid-lane! Further, I liked that it doesn't hesitate off the pattern but instead makes a well-defined, crisp turn down lane that I could count on! Finally, as a straighter player, I liked how the S70 gave me the confidence to move in without worrying if my release was enough to make it to the pocket. The S70 pearl coverstock gets you down the lane - and even when you think you got it too far, take a deep breath because the Wolverine will make the turn! In conclusion, the Wolverine is an excellent new release by 900 Global. With the winning combination of the Lacerate 2.0 core and the S70 Pearl coverstock, the Wolverine is a superb choice for many styles of bowlers at a mid-level price! And if you are a straighter player like me, the Wolverine will be a ferocious weapon to add to your arsenal! So see your local pro shop operator today and make a place for the Wolverine in your arsenal! It's worth it! Rick Klimowicz Storm Products Pro Shop Staff Roll the Ball Pro shop Penndel, PA

    The Wolverine is one of my favourite SPI ball this year ! It is for me the perfect ball for the dry lanes conditions. The wolverine is for me, more rounded than other especialy on the middle part of the lane. She make just give the little hit that I need at the backend but not agressively. I can play straighter front of me but I'm prefered to cross a big part of the lane when it's more dry. Reeeeaaalllyyy predictible. I already won a tournament this year with ! You need one in your bag for sure !! Try it !!!

    Core: Lacerate 2.0 Cover: S70 Pearl Finish: 1500 Polish RG: 2.54 Diff: 0.053 (15# ball) Right-Handed Tweener Speed: 12-13 mph Rev Rate: 315 PAP: 4 7/8 Right 3/8 Up Ball Layout: Pin over Ring 5 1/4 Pin to Pap 1" Pin Buffer The new 900 Global Wolverine is a scrapper for sure. The Strong Symmetric Lacerate core features a very high diff for the price point and the pearl version of the s70 cover definitely makes this ball long and strong. Compared to other balls at its price point I would say the Wolverine is as strong as it gets. Its not going to necessarily be snappy as the big core gives you some earlier motion but it is very continuous. Its particularly effective navigating transition on heavier volumes. Sometimes you can get trapped when your big solids push you left and want to slow down and it's 10 pin city. Since you're very often taking a big step down in over all hook to get into a quicker ball to create more angle you sometimes get pushed into the over-under where your quick ball can't be a little in and your big ball can't get a little right. This is the ideal environment for the wolverine. I would definitely recommend this ball for bowlers who struggle a bit more low ball speed. It makes a great option as a big ball for guys who have trouble getting the big solids down-lane.

    Layout: 40 x 4 5/8 x 40 The Wolverine has become the slightly smoother, slightly less aggressive companion to the Phaze 4 in my bag. Out of box, the Wolverine loves medium to medium-dry lane conditions. I have not messed with the cover much yet, but with this ball's inherent smooth roll, I predict that at a fresh 2000 cover it would be great for medium-heavy oil conditions. In comparison, I find the core in the Phaze 4 to lend itself to handling oil slightly better, but the reaction of the Wolverine is a touch more rounded. I can be more aggressive with my hand at the release point with the Wolverine and it won't over-react; however, I've found that if I do spin it a touch more than intended, the core won't make up for it as much as the Phaze 4 would.

    The Wolverine by 900 Global is an awesome bowling ball if you are looking for a bowling ball to be super clean and wildly aggressive on the backend. The shell is the S70 Pearl Reactive and the core is the Lacerate 2.0 Symmetric which puts the RG at 2.54 and the diff at .053 (15lbs). That just means distance with a lot of recovery! The Wolverine is Phenomenal when the fronts get blown up and you must move left and get it going to the right, there is no quit on the backend for this fella. The layout I chose for the Wolverine was 5 ½ X 5 X 2 1/2, The pin position will emphasis length (5 ½), the second number is not important it just gets the imaginary mass bias close to the thumb hole and the buffer is at 2 ½ in my experience for me that allows the bowling ball some time to transition. My coordinates are 300 rev rate, PAP 5 5/8 over and ¾ up and I like to play close to the friction. The Wolverine will push and recover with ease. What I found that by taking some of the shine off maybe with a 2000 or 3000 pad the squirt through the front is diminished but the backend is still ferocious. I always have issues with over under with pearlized bowling balls at the beginning of league or whatever. What I found with the Wolverine is it only lasts during practice or the first couple of shots, but you must be careful not to get it out too far or it will jump.... Later, in the session that jumpiness is a total blessing and will help you open the lane like a can opener. The combination of strength with aggression down lane makes this ball a must for bad backends, rotational challenged or just like to stand left and get it right. The Wolverine's motion is very similar to Idol Pearl but just stronger overall. The Wolverine is a bowling ball that can be used under different conditions and different styles. This is one Pearl Bowling Ball that I would recommend especially if the center is a touch on the dry side or the backends are beat up! The Wolverine is another great bowling ball by 900 Global.

    900 Global Wolverine Cover: 1500-Polished S70™ Pearl Reactive Core: Lacerate 2.0™ (Symmetrical) Color: Navy/Aqua Review: The first thing I want to say is this is my favorite looking ball in my bag. The blue really pops when it is sitting next to the rest of my equipment. When I first threw this ball I reminded me a lot of the Hy-Road Pearl, but as I threw it more and made some surface changes I quickly realized it was a completely different ball. This ball really liked to get down the lane and have a sharp backend motion. Which late in the day at tournaments this ball is great. I love that sharp backend motion that it makes. When I took the polish off it created more mid lane roll for me which can be a life saver when the lands are making a transition. This ball is a great step up over the Burner Pearl before you get to your Zen. Will Tefft 900 Global Staff Member will@parklanes.net www.900global.com #GoGlobal

    900 Global Wolverine Cover: 1500-Polished S70™ Pearl Reactive Core: Lacerate 2.0™ (Symmetrical) Color: Navy/Aqua Review: 900 Global really set the mark for symmetric pearls with the popularity of the original Zen. This ball really fills the gap between the Zen and Burner Pearl, almost mimicking hy-road pearl vibes. We are hoping no one overlooks this ball as it really packs a similar punch to the Zen, and yes it is that good. The Wolverine is great late in blocks if your Asym pearl is too much, or if you need to step down from a solid or hybrid cover and want to keep your feet in a similar position. One thing that really stands out and why we compare it to the hy-road pearl is the continuation is incredible and does really seem like it is on a higher level than other bowling balls.

    The Wolverine features the S70 pearl coverstock and Lacerate 2.0 core, which comes in at a 2.54 RG and a .053 differential in 15 pounds. The core is a combination of the top half of the Honey Badger core and the bottom half of the Badger core, and the S70 cover is very closely related to Storm's R2S formula, so the easiest way to explain the Wolverine is that it's a stronger Hyroad Pearl. The Wolverine has a very balanced reaction, it's easy to get down the lane and punchy on the backend, but not excessively. The medium RG of the core keeps it from revving up too soon but the high differential gives it plenty of flare to keep it strong and consistent on the backend. The cover is medium strength so it's going to be on play for a lot of people on a regular house shot, and those with higher speed might find it to be a good step down from what they start with when transition sets in. For my wife and I, the Wolverine fits as a ball down from something like the Zen, and a ball up from something like a Burner Solid or Pearl. Wolverine Review: https://youtu.be/7HUTKqgs-ok

The Wolverine will excel in situations where you need to open your angles on most THS conditions. The Wolverine will provide a nice amount of length with good recovery downlane. If you are currently a fan of the previous 900 Badgers and Honey Badgers you already know what this one can do. If you have not been introduced to the Wolverine from 900 Global be sure to check this one out. For me, we decided to go with a standard benchmark 2LS layout. Before rolling this ball I was a bit concerned that the Wolverine would be a touch sideways for me. However, I was 100% surprised how smooth the Wolverine went through the front part of the lane and the room I had available off the spot to strike on a 43' THS. Previously, I have enjoyed balls like the Honey Badger Revival and the Honey Badger Extreme Pearl where I did a short pin to PAP layout. Although the above are Asymmetric I was pleasantly pleased with the forgiveness of the Wolverine which is a symetrical off spring to the above. From what I personally have witnessed so far and for the limited time I have had with this ball it appears to be a homerun for most league conditions. At this time, I have not changed the surface of the Wolverine. If you see over/under results the recommend has been to touch the surface with either a 3K or 4K pad and make decisions accordingly. I'm definitely excited for this ball from 900 Global! Michael Slatky 900 Global Staff Member York, PA

    Drilling pattern: 75 x 5 1/4 x 45 Pin placement: Above and left of ring finger Looking to replace my old HB Extreme Pearl and finding the Wolverine as a pretty solid replacement. The cover is strong, but still gets through the fronts with relative ease (especially with a 5+ inch pin on it). I had some difficulty controlling the old White Hot Badger due to my early roll, but putting the long pin to PAP drilling has really opened up opportunities to use equipment I typically couldn't. This ball stores energy very well with strong backend motion. This will be a fantastic ball for late in blocks, or on THS with light oil. This ball will roll later than the Zen and should be a solid complement when the Zen gets a little lazy down lane. Brent Ritchie 900 Global/Storm/Roto Grip Staff Member
