Product Rating: (5.00)
The Hard Drive is one of my go to balls. I like to turn to this ball if my solid becomes too much and starts to hook out. My Hard Drive is drilled to hook a little earlier. I like this ball because it is still strong enough to get through some oil, but will react great on the back end when my stronger equipment hooks out.
This is your new do all bowling ball. At the very least guys with heavier hand are going to have a ball to cover medium to lighter side of heavy. Extremely important slot to fill in any arsenal because this is what most of us are seeing on most patterns, atleast to start a shift.
This is an awesome ball!! The Hard Drive is great addition to anybody’s Arsenal! This ball is great for any style bowler on medium to heavy conditions. Don't let the out of box appearance of ball fool you, this ball will read heavy amounts of oil and give you a great reaction to the pocket. I like this ball on the house shots that have more oil in the middle and where you also need the ball to make a pronounced move at your breakpoint. If this is what you are looking for than this is the ball for you. This ball is great for league or tournaments.
Great ball for medium to medium heavy oil. Hit the cover and the ball will handle heavier patterns. Not for dry lanes. Very strong midlane and strong back end. Speed dominate players or bowlers who want to open up the lane will love this ball. Very easy to read with great carry.
As soon as I got the ball out of the box, I loved the color combination so it is very pleasing to the eye. I layed this ball out with a 5 1/2 inch pin above the fingers. And it looks like to me like this ball is the one that will be replacing the train line of balls. It is definitely the most hooking ball of their new fall line of equipment. In comparing it to the original train, I would say it hooks about as many boards. But that this one has a little more length on it and a stronger move at the breakpoint than the Train. Don't let the out of box appearance of ball fool you, this ball will read heavy amounts of oil and give you a great reaction to the pocket. I like this ball on the house shots that have more oil in the middle and where you also need the ball to make a pronounced move at your breakpoint. If thats what you are looking for than this is it. Ball will also be good on PBA patterns like the shark with a little surface adjustment using the "e" pad with neat finishing system. Hard Drive will also be good for lower rev rate players on Chameleon and USBC Championship leaving surface the way it is out of the box. 900 has done a great job getting a ball to replace the Train. Well done!
If you're looking for a ball that has a great midlane read, with a predictable yet amazing backend finish, look no further than the new 900 Global Hard Drive. The beautiful blue and silver colors and the T-Pad 4000 grit finish really compliment the S74 cover. A great benchmark piece for any type of bowler. had a four game league set of 278, 289, 290, and 279 with it over the summer under adverse conditions on the lanes and approaches. The Hard Drive really wowed everyone that threw it at the demos. It is the hottest selling ball of the summer. Don't be "that guy" that doesn't have one in his bag this season! 900 global really outdid themselves with this beast! Get an AMF Solar Flare and 900 Global Protocol to complete your arsenal. They all compliment each other well! Check out my videos of 900 Global/AMF Products on youtube, username "conventionalspinner"..
This new release from 900 Global looks absolutely sweet! Great color combo. Drilled my Hard Drive with a 5 x 5 layout, CG swung 1" right of center, pin up. The Hard Drive gave me a extreme arc reaction. The motion of this ball is unique. Seems to want to roll the entire lane. Love the T finish, looks shiny but still wanted to roll. Great benchmark ball for me on medium to heavy oil. Let me play straighter on the lane without any over under reaction AND still carried the corners. I am excited to see what this one will do on tournament conditions with oil/wet-dry looks. Great ball to have in your arsenal from 900 Global!
From the minute you open the box, you will notice the Hard Drive is in a class by itself. The Midnight Blue/Steel color combination is just plain cool looking! I couldn’t believe how much this ball motors threw any amount of oil put out on the lanes. Even though this ball starts up a little earlier I was very impressed how I could play outside with it and still not worry about leaving flat corners. The flexibility that Global built into this ball is truly second to none. This ball is very continuous and extremely predictable! If you need a good all around ball that can be used in oil and also when the conditions dictate a straighter approach, the Hard Drive is what you have been looking for.
Drilled for THS. Start roll early for a continuous arc to the pocket. Ball maintains very strong hitting power with the 4000 neat finish.
I drilled my Hard Drive with a simple 1/2 side 1/2 finger layout so I could compare it to my equipment I drill for my favorite house shot pattern. (40 feet of oil from 8 to 8) I started by playing 15 to 10 and found it was way to strong for that, so I ended up playing 20 to 15 and had a nice shot for the first game 268, I started the second game off with a 4-6 split and made a 2 and 2 move and got back to hitting the hole and ended up with a 226, to start the third game I made another 2-2 move but the ball just wouldn't hold pocket and I only managed a 201 game. Overall the ball is very strong in the midland with an aggressive arcing backend. Please note you must have oil or you need to keep it in your bag. Good Luck and keep hitting them hard. JMD878
