DV8 Verge Pearl Bowling Ball Features:
The Verge has been a favorite in the DV8 lineup, and we are excited to follow it up with the Verge Pearl. The Verge received the attention of bowlers because of its strength and versatility, the Verge Pearl brings much of the same but has more length and a sharper breakpoint. The Verge Pearl will be a great addition to the bag for medium conditions and to combat transition.
The Verge Pearl features Durability Optimization Technology (DOT), a patent-pending advancement in bowling ball technology. DOT enhances the durability of your ball allowing DV8 to offer an industry best, four year limited warranty.
The Verge Pearl features the innovative outer core technology called DynamiCore. This industry-leading technology is a more durable outer material that yields less compression upon impact increasing hitting power and creating an undeniable difference in sound and pin carry.

A great follow up to the popular verge solid. This ball offers more length and a sharper breakpoint compared to the solid to make a great 1-2 punch. A great ball for medium conditions and battling the transition. Pair that with DOT technology and Dynamicore for a durable hard hitting symmetrical pearl

This ball is a great follow up to what I thought was one of the best balls out there. I think the motion of the Verge line is one that everyone should have in there bag! I have mine drilled 3 3/4 x 30 and left at the box finish and lightly hand dusted it with a 3000 pad. For me, this ball is same motion as the solid but it gets you down lane about foot or so more. It’s a strong continuous motion. The dark blue color makes the ball easy to read going down the lane. It has DOT technology and with the warranty that comes with it this ball is a steal of a deal.

Let’s start by saying I’m a huge fan of the Verge solid. This ball offers more length and a sharper breakpoint in comparison to the solid. I feel it makes a great 1-2 punch combo with the Verge solid. A great ball for medium conditions and if the fronts go first. This is a great hard hitting symmetrical pearl.

Ok…my first question to you, do you own the Verge? I do. And I really thought that the Verge was one of the most underrated balls to be released by DV8. So, naturally, I had to drill up the Verge Pearl. First, I drilled it identical to the solid. Pin at 11 o’clock (I’m left-handed). Instead of a shiny cover, I sanded it down to 2000. This allowed it to be a little more controllable. Plus I can use it on patterns with a little more volume. And it allowed my Hero Pearl to be a step down. The more I throw the Verge Pearl the more I like it. I’m not a huge fan of pearls but I really trust this ball. With the right surface, you won’t be disappointed.

The DV8 Verge Pearl is a great transition ball. In my area, there is not a lot of volume to use this ball out the gate, but I found this ball to be used greatly during tournaments after 2-3 games. This ball cleared the fronts really well and provides a sharp backend reaction for when you have to open the lanes up. For being a symmetrical ball, you will not be disappointed in the backend reaction and its hard hitting on the pins.

No-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. Tremendous slouch.
Length with continuous backend. Ideal for medium oil.
The Verge has been a favorite in the DV8 lineup, and DV8 follows it up with the Verge Pearl. The Verge received the attention of bowlers because of its strength and versatility, the Verge Pearlbrings much of the same (as with the Verge Solid the Verge Pearl also uses the Threshold core and an addition of a pearl additive to make the Inciter Pearl cover stock) but has more length and a sharper breakpoint. The Verge Pearlwill be a great addition to your bag for medium conditions and to combat transition. Adding DynamiCore for extra hitting power and Durability Optimization Technology (DOT) for worry free drilling with your favorite layout, and this ball is a sure thing.
The out of box surface is 500/1000 and finished with Crown Factory Compound. With the core and cover combination the Verge Pearl is exactly as DV8 intended and advertised, length and a sharper breakpoint but not too quick off of the dry (and my chosen layout of 80×4.25×45 helps to promote that ball shape). The Verge Pearl has been in play for me every week of this season except for one when the lanes played super slick all night long. It can be used as the first ball out of my bag although I tend to have a better look starting league with a solid, be it symmetric or asymmetric core, and this ball really excels when the pattern starts to transition after a solid or ball with surface is reading the lane too early. I can play a really deep inside line, get a handful and send it with the Verge Pearl still having energy to drive through the pins.
The Dark Blue, Ocean Blue pearl cover highlighted with the Orange lettering really make a beautiful looking ball.
High performance at the upper-mid level price, the Verge Pearl is THE FIRST ball that I’ll recommend to any bowler looking for a symmetric pearl. Released at the start of this bowling season, it is a constant ball in my league and tournament bags and gets lane time nearly every session whether it’s as early as the first game or to close out the last game.
Be well, rip racks …and shred pins.

This large cored symmetrical pearl is very smooth and strong. It is a ball I can throw for all 3 games for league and also use in tournaments to control the pattern well. The blue color is very appealing for those who like to throw single colored bowling balls. This is a versatile ball and would recommend to anyone looking for that benchmark pearl.
