    When I first saw the specs for the Rude Dude, my first thought was "Oh boy, another ball with some kind of compound on it. Why don't they make a sanded symmetrical ball?" The Marauder Madness was a great ball for me so I thought I was missing that in my bag since mine had been retired for a while. The Rude Dude cover is that strong that it was better to put some compound on it so that it didn't hook TOO much. Out fo the box, the Rude Dude cover is strong enough to handle oil, even with the comound on it. I was very surprised at the amount of hook this ball gave. The black/purple Dude was my favorite ball of all time. I could slow down and use it when they were tight, I could throw it normal when they were average, and I can step left and get around it when the lanes hooked. That ball matched up to my game better than I have ever seen. Because I have a long/high backswing, it is difficult for me to try and slow down. I had the hardest time with the Dude when I had to slow down to get it to turn up to the pocket. I still had success doing so, but that is where I had the most trouble with the Dude. The new Rude Dude is designed to handle medium to heavy oil. The times where I had to work to get my Dude to face up with pocket is the perfect situation for the Rude Dude. It digs through oil and makes a hard continuous move off of the dry, so you don't have to try and make the ball do things. You can just relax and focus on your routine, knowing the ball is going to read the lanes the way you need it to. This is the best 1-2 combination in the game, without a doubt.

    PAP - 5 1/4, 3/4 up RPM - 350 16 MPH Patterns: THS, Viper. Length: 42' and 39' Layout: 70 x 4.25 x 35 The Rude Dude is the second ball from DV8 in the Dude line. With the symmetric core, the Rude Dude features a very strong but controllable backend motion, but still manages to easily clear the heads. I always liked the original Dude, it’s a ball I can play straighter up the lane with and not get an over/under reaction on the back-end. Especially when bowling on the tougher sport shot patterns. The only complaint I’ve have with the original was when the lanes where freshly oiled or on the tighter side, then it was sometimes too easy to push it through the breakpoint. But with the Rude Dude’s more aggressive coverstock, that’s no longer a problem. The ball now gets through the fronts as easy as the original, but picks up on the mid-lane much quicker. I also liked the way I can change the surface on the ball without losing the basic shape of the reaction. Out of the box, it comes 500 and buffed, but bringing it up to 2000 and shined allowed me to use it on “burn” and still get the same basic reaction as the out-of-box finish did on fresh. Overall, the Rude Dude has a unique reaction and makes a great addition to anyone’s bag. Comparatively, I would say it’s about 30% more aggressive overall than the original Dude, and about the same overall hook as the DV8 Diva, but with a more arcing shape.
