Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the woods...the Wolverine™ Dark Moss attacks!! Featuring the incredibly versatile S70™ Pearl Cover with an all new finish, this animal will handle more oil than its predecessor while not sacrificing any backend. The Lacerate 2.0™ Core is the premier weight block within the Global line for moving in and opening your angles. Max backend never looked so good.

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss S70 pearl coverstock Lacerate 2.0 core The core 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. Longer, more angular shape, Good move from my Zen when I need a little more length/little less overall hook. Step up from my Electrify Pearl, step down from my Phaze 3 or Zen,

    I am higher speed, rev challenged 220-250ish, high tilt, high rotation, and super low track player. I drilled my Wolverine dark moss 25x4.25x35. I was very excited and hoped this would have been a replacement for the OG wolverine, but it wasn't. This ball works best for me when the lanes are dry which allows me to stay right. This ball is a bit cleaner down lane for me in comparison to the OG wolverine. I haven't thrown this ball a ton in league but it's definitely a great addition for players that need it for light and medium oil patterns.

    The new addition to the 900 Global line is the Wolverine Dark Moss. This is the original Wolverine replacement. 900 Global used the same core but used a different color of S70 Pearl Coverstock (Green). I thought the original Wolverine was a little flippy. I drilled mine 5 x 3 x 2 pin above my middle finger. I added a little 2000 pad to the surface. I have the Dark Moss a little earlier and more rounded on the backend. It has been a great ball to combat the wet/dry lane conditions. Even with the more rounded backend the Dark Moss can still be used when playing the deeper inside angles. Very Continuous motion. When the earlier and stronger balls like Zen, Phaze 2, reality check start to bog down the Dark Moss is perfect ball to transition to.

    Wolverine Dark Moss Ball Specs Cover Stock: S70 Pearl Finish: 4K Fast Layout:65 x 5 x 35 RG: 2.54 Differential: 0.053 Review The Wolverine Dark Moss features the S70 Pearl coverstock, which optimizes max length on medium conditions. The Wolverine Dark Moss core is the lacerate 2.0, which will give the ball a skid/flip reaction. I tested the ball on a broken down 42 feet THS. As a medium to low rev player, I was standing between the 21 and 30 boards with my feet and 4 and 10 boards with my eyes, never losing any striking power. My ball layout is 65x5x35. The Dark Moss is a must have for league and tournament bowlers. My ball reviews are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite. Stanley Waite 900 Global Staff Member Dover, DE

    The Wolverine Dark Moss is the latest addition to the 900 Global line. The biggest difference between the Dark Moss and the original Wolverine is the coverstock. The Dark Moss uses the S70 Pearl cover and the same Lacerate 2 core. The Dark Moss is clean and super quick off the dry. It does have a higher 2.54 RG and diff of .053, the Dark Moss is designed to be used when there's a good amount of friction, when the bigger balls are too early. I drilled mine 4x5x3 and it picks up the kids extremely well. I can see myself using it on house shots when I need to get in and give away the pocket a bit. If I was to drill another one I would drill it much weaker and have it be my end of block ball. The Dark Moss really wants to get in and be wheeled! Do not be surprised if you see this ball make a lot of PBA tour telecasts! I have seen a ton of these out in PBA regional competition and the righties with any kind of rev rate make it look silly!

    Same ball different cover...maybe. The reactions are different! My original blue Wolverine really stood up and went forward. The Dark Moss gets to the spot, hooks, and has more continuation. So far this season, the Dark Moss has bailed me out for more than the blue Wolverine did last year. It's just more useful and I have more confidence in it! No copy and pasting from me when it comes to this ball. It's NOT the same as it's predecessor, its BETTER! I still use it later in blocks or later in the evening on league nights. Once the lanes break down this ball will allow me to be in, still hit on it, get through the heads and mids without over reading the burn or the friction down lane. The Wolverine Dark Moss is a keeper! Layout: 4.25x5.25x2 (same as the OG Wolverine) Other balls getting a lot of play: Dark Code-4x6x2 Night Road-4.5x4.5x3.75 Idol Cosmos-4x5x2 Zen Soul-4x5x2

    The new Wolverine Dark Moss from 900 Global is the ball for when the lanes are Curving!!! This ball has the same core same numbers same coverstock except this Dark Moss comes out of the box with the 4K Fast! My Wolverine Dark Moss is drilled pin over my bridge which is the same layout I put on the original Wolverine! This Dark moss is a great compliment to a Zen and Rubicon UC2 when you need length with great backend motion when the lanes hook! This Dark Moss is overall 3-4 boards stronger downlane than the original Wolverine! Head over to your local Pro Shop today and get yours!

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss Layout: 50 x 6 x 55 Finish: 4k FAST Lane types and pattern types: HPL lane panels with 48ft THS pattern and SPL panels with 46ft THS Comparing the new Dark Moss to the Original Wolverine, I first prepped the OG Wolverine with factory 4K FAST as per instruction from stormbowling.com, to make sure I can compare them ball to ball, surface to surface and layout to layout. Using the identical layout, surface and practice time, the Dark Moss did not disappoint me, S70 pearl coverstock with the core made from two different cores, using the bottom portion of the BADGER core and top portion of the HONEY BADGER core resulted in the best of both worlds with this core contraction. The Lacerate 2.0 core really helps with direction changes on any type of lane pattern, surfaces and environments. I did notice that the Dark Moss moved an inch or two earlier than the Blue Wolverine, and it may be because of the coloring in the 2 different Wolverines is my theory. But overall the Dark Moss performed the same as the OG Wolverine overall. For those that LOVED the IQ Tour Emerald, you will be happy with this Wolverine. I enjoyed using this ball in practice on two different THS, and also about 30 minutes on Don Carter pattern, when other lefties were using urethane and they were having fits from earlier urethane movement or no recovery urethane motion, I was able to move a few boards right inside of them and open up the angle a little more towards and at the gutter. Medium strength overall, but it BIT through the pins like it was biting through bones, just like a Wolverine would do.

    Sometimes it's amazing how things work out. The original Wolverine is an all time favorite for me. What happened with that having to be discontinued. I got a better version!!!! All the good of the original but a little stronger allows me to get into it a little earlier and get more use out of it. Same shape as the original it just handles a little more oil.

    The Wolverine Dark Moss is 900 Global's newest addition to their 700 Series. The Dark Moss is 900 Global's replacement to the Original Wolverine after it got banned from certain USBC events. I think that they have done a great job replacing this ball. With that being said, I feel that the Dark Moss and the original Wolverine are very similar, however, the Dark Moss is earlier and smoother (I attribute this to the Dark Moss having the 4k fast finish compared to the 1500 polish featured on the Wolverine). I believe that I would use them both in a very similar spot, however I would probably use the Dark Moss earlier in the day than the Wolverine. I think that the Dark Moss will be a great addition to your tournament or houseshot bag! Go out and get yours today!

    I drilled my Dark Moss 4 1/2 by 35 which is how I drilled my original one. To me the Dark Moss is a little more motion in the back than the original. I get good skid thru the front and great recovery in the back of the lane. I have used this when my REALITY CHECK is getting to forward or stopping. It also will let me play straighter and hug the oil line in league play. Get this one when you want something to get thru the burnt fronts but need some recovery down the lane.

    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 4K Fast 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 it's 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.

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss Coverstock: S70 Pearl Core: Lacerate 2.0 Layout: 5 x 4 x 2 First, I didn't drill an original Wolverine. I drilled my Dark Moss a pretty standard 5 x 4 x 2 pin up. I did not like the 4k fast finish out of box so I almost immediately hit it with polish and it came alive. This ball really likes to open up the lane as a transitional option in the mid to latter part of league or tournament block when you need a bit longer look than the Zen. Often, a Hustle, Hyped, or Electrify are a bit too long and this ball really fills that stronger/longer gap. It's also quite the looker with polish on it! Reminds me of the Emerald IQ!

    The Wolverine Dark Moss is the latest addition to the 900 Global line. The biggest difference between the Dark Moss and the original Wolverine is the coverstock. The Dark Moss has a pearl coverstock (S70 cover) and uses the same engine as the original Wolverine (Lacerate 2.0). After drilling one so far, the Dark Moss is clean and whippy down-lane. With an RG of 2.54 and differential of .053, the Dark Moss is designed to be used when there's a good amount of friction, when the earlier balls (Zen Master, Gem, Infinite Physix) are too strong, and when straighter players want to keep their angles in front of them. I've drilled one Dark Moss so far and love it. I drilled it the same way as my original Wolverine (5 x 4). This puts the pin above my bridge and the CG is slightly kicked. I haven't changed the surface at all and just let lane shine change the cover. I've had a lot of success during league when there's a good amount of friction as well as on patterns when I need to open up my angles. If you're missing a ball that can fit any players game and can be used from angles all over the lane, the Dark Moss should be the next ball you drill! #GoGlobal

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss Layout: 5 x 4 x 2 Storm Vector Layout Rev Rate: 325 rpm Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume) Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane The 900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss utilizes the S70 pearl coverstock and proven Lacerate 2.0 weight block. The Lacerate 2.0 is a combination of the cores used in the popular Honey Badger and Badger. How could you go wrong? I tested the Wolverine Dark Moss on the pair I bowled a 4-game set on. The lanes were a little tricky with OB outside and hooking break point spot once the lanes transitioned so it wasn't ideal testing conditions. However, the Dark Moss did perform well once I got these old bones doing the correct things. I ended up being lined up where I finished with the Storm Infinite Physix in league. I am not saying the Dark Moss is as strong as the Infinite Physix but the lane conditions played that way. In addition, I left the 4K-Fast finish on the Dark Moss and shined the Infinite Physix so that played a role in playing the two balls in the same area. Remember – ball surface plays a big role in ball reaction. If you don't believe me, try it sometime. The best feature with the first time throwing the Dark Moss was the carry and the way it went through the pocket. I am going to put a Reacta Shine on my Dark Moss and use it late in tournaments as I believe that was the design intentions of the team. #Stormnation

    Wolverine dark moss !!!!!!!! WOW !!! I was in love last year with the original version and it's the same thing again. i have drilled mine 65x5 1/8x35. The DM is a little bit aggressive on the triangle entry than the first one. It give me the opportunity to go really further at my left. I can loft the gutter and It never not enought far for the punch at the end of the lane. It's my best solution to pass the breakpoint when it's become dryer. I can also play a straight line in front of me when the lane have litlle more oil like at the end of league night or a dryer bowling center. It's a great option for the player who don't have a lot of speed; she will give you a chance to keep on the good side. I will used it a lot this year for sure !!!! #strikingworldwide

    Wolverine Dark Moss - WWRD 7/29/2022 This is a good piece for Medium Oil patterns. The Wolverine Dark Moss is clean through the fronts with a continuous backend motion. Good piece for in the middle of the block when you need the ball to get through the fronts and strong continuation on the backend to get the corner out. Also, you can move in and open your angles. This is overall about 0-2 more than the Original Wolverine. This is a good versatile piece to have in your bag.

    55 x 4 ½ x 35 I absolutely loved the original Wolverine, so I was very happy to see the Dark Moss coming out as a replacement. They are very similar, but the surface change on the Dark Moss (4000 grit instead of 1500 plus polish) does create a smoother roll. I see the same elements in both Wolverines – a very versatile ball that can cover medium-heavy to medium-dry lane conditions. The reaction is a hard arc, but not flippy. The easiest comparison is to the Idol Cosmos, which is a bit earlier and a touch stronger overall than the Dark Moss.
