DV8 Trouble Maker Pearl Bowling Ball

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Trouble Maker was a revolutionary ball featuring the first core designed specifically for no-thumb bowlers. The ball performed incredibly for all styles, even bowlers who use a thumb hole, but no-thumb bowlers saw more versatility from this ball than any other. The Trouble Maker Pearl is the perfect follow-up. By adding HK22 with Inciter Pearl additives, this core and cover combination will be just what every no-thumb bowler needs to combat medium oil.


The features of the Dualistic core make the Trouble Maker unique and valuable for “no thumbers.” The Dualistic core is larger than the typical core. It has defined areas built into the design for the two-finger holes to hit specific core parts to change the numbers and reaction more dramatically than a typical core shape.

To help with the no-thumb layouts, we recommend using the Dual Angle Converter Tool to translate the recommended DOT to center of grip (CoG) and DOT to positive axis point (PAP) distances into dual angle layouts. Our no-thumb Dual Angle Converter Tool provides the dual angle values for your desired layout helping maximize the ball performance of the Trouble Maker’s Dualistic core.
