DV8 Damn Good Verge Pearl Bowling Ball Features:
DV8 has been due for a damn good follow-up to the ultra-successful Damn Good Verge for some time now. The Damn Good Verge Pearl perfectly complements the original Damn Good and even the most recent Collision. The polished, purple one-color ball is damn good when you need a pretty clean ball that makes a defined and strong move on the backend. The original Damn Good turned many heads, and this one is sure to be… Damn Good!

This is exactly what you would expect from a pearl version of one of the best and most versatile symmetrical balls, the Damn Good Verge original solid. As you would expect this one is cleaner up front and a little more pop down lane, but nothing crazy or over reactive. Allows be to get the same shape as the original on less oil. Love that they included Dynamicore for hitting power and DOT on it as some of the less hooking balls tend to not have these bells and whistles sometimes. Bottom line, if you bowl on slightly lower volume oil patterns, or later in tournament blocks, this is a great option and is going to be a league staple in the bag. I went with 70 x 3.75 x 20 on mine.

The damn good verge pearl is an excellent pearl complement to the original damn good verge. When the DGV solid starts hooking to early and not quite finishing on the back end to get the tent out switch to the pearl, the DGV Pearl will be a little more cleaner through the front saving energy on the backend taking out that 10 pin. The DGV Pearl will not be the strongest Pearl in your bag. It will be the ball you need when the lanes are broke down with the front of the lane gone. This is a must have for both tournaments and leagues.

After drilling my Damn good Verge I could not wait to drill up the Damn Good Verge Pearl. I drilled mine 60 x 4 ½ x 35 and was hoping for that smooth motion with a little “pop” at the end. What a got I did not expect, this ball picks up the mids, hits like a Hammer AND gives me the ability to move in and open up my angles. With lower ball speeds this is an absolute plus for me and a great addition to my arsenal. I believe that even as good as the solid was, this ball is even better!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better!
The DG Verge Pearl is the newest ball from DV8, and the name says it all! Like its predecessor the DG Verge Solid, the DG Verge Pearl is just as incredible! This is a ball that is very dynamic on lanes with strong back ends and is incredibly versatile from many angles and many different layouts. This is another benchmark ball from DV8 that bowlers at all levels have been waiting for. The DG Verge Pearl is very smooth and consistent with incredible mid-lane roll. The DG Verge Pearl gives bowlers more continuous movement through the backend…much more in comparison to its predecessor, the DG Verge Solid. This ball is really just that good and I highly encourage any bowler looking for a ball that will not disappoint you. Make a leap and try the new DG Verge Pearl. Remember…if you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling!!!

The lower differential of the Damn Good Verge Pearl makes it (in my opinion) a more versatile piece than its original counter part. Where some people saw the Damn Good Verge be a little too early and slow off of the spot. It’s pearl version picks up a little later and retains energy to kick those pins around in Damn Good Fashion. Excellent all from the DV8 line

The Damn good Verge Pearl is just that! DAMN GOOD. For me this one gets down lane longer and turns harder than the previous Verge balls. Super smooth and comes of the patterns great! I use this bad boy for both house shots and longer sport shots. This is a must have for all levels!
The DGV Pearl is a ball everyone should consider having in their bag.
This ball I find to be versatile on a number of shots. House pattern, late in the block, or when the lanes are burnt, this is a ball for the job.
It’s cleaner than the solid version with more pop down lane. When the solid appears lazy , pull out the DGV Pearl and keep on striking.

The Damn Good Verge was a very predictable and smooth ball. This ball is exactly what you would expect from the Pearl version. Smooth and cleaner through the fronts. With the core, this pearl doesn’t pop downlane like other pieces. There is an opportunity to start in the same place you finish with the Damn Good Verge. When you’re looking to control the lane due to them being tough, but you still need to clear the front part of the lane, this is a great ball to do just that. It has a unique motion for a pearl I’ve never had in my bag, so it certainly comes with me when I am rolling on short and medium length patterns.
