Additional product information:

 Just when you thought it was safe to go back into thewoods...the Wolverine™ Dark Moss attacks!! Featuring theincredibly versatile S70™ Pearl Cover with an all new finish,this animal will handle more oil than its predecessor while notsacrificing any backend. The Lacerate 2.0™ Core is thepremier weight block within the Global line for moving in andopening your angles. Max backend never looked so good.


The Lacerate 2.0 Core is the combination of two of the most successful cores of all time for Global. The top portion is that of the Honey Badger, while the bottom portion is that of the Badger. By merging these two amazing cores into one and adding a dense flip block, we have created an engine that will change directions unbelievably sharp. When combined with the super clean cover, the Lacerate 2.0 core will absolutely tear the back part of the lanes to pieces!

    Wolverine Dark Moss Review by Luke Rosdahl

    The Wolverine Dark Moss features the S70 Pearl coverstock at a 4K Fast finish, and the Lacerate 2.0 core at a 2.54 RG, and .053 differential in 15 pounds. Basically, the Dark Moss IS the original Wolverine in a different color with a slightly different box surface. The result when comparing the box surface Wolverine to the box surface Dark Moss is of course that the Dark Moss is earlier, stronger, and smoother, however, when compared at the same surface, the comparison remains, BUT is a very marginal difference. Colors do actually factor into ball reaction, however minimally, but just like the IQ Emerald was generally considered to be earlier and smoother than the original IQ Tour Pearl (Gold Ball), the Dark Moss is also generally a little earlier and smoother than the original Wolverine when all other things are the same. It remains a great option in the middle of the lineup, as it’s similar strength to the Hyroad line but with a stronger core to boost the overall strength, rev faster, and roll stronger, but isn’t as strong as the Phaze 3 or Zen. It perfectly fills the gap between the Burners and Zen’s in Global’s lineup, the gap between the HP2 and HP3 lines in Roto’s catalog, and the gap between the Phaze 3 and Hyroads in Storm’s lineup, so it’s a very well placed and necessary option in the SPI catalog.

    Wolverine Dark Moss Ball Specs Cover Stock: S70 Pearl Finish: 4K Fast Layout:65 x 5 x 35 RG: 2.54 Differential: 0.053 Review The Wolverine Dark Moss features the S70 Pearl coverstock, which optimizes max length on medium conditions. The Wolverine Dark Moss core is the lacerate 2.0, which will give the ball a skid/flip reaction. I tested the ball on a broken down 42 feet THS. As a medium to low rev player, I was standing between the 21 and 30 boards with my feet and 4 and 10 boards with my eyes, never losing any striking power. My ball layout is 65x5x35. The Dark Moss is a must have for league and tournament bowlers. My ball reviews are posted on YouTube channel Stanley Waite. Stanley Waite 900 Global Staff Member Dover, DE

    Dark Moss

    Wolverine Dark Moss Cover: Pearl Cover S70 Weight Block: Symmetrical Weightblock Color: Dark Moss Review: If you had the opportunity to throw the original Wolverine, you’re going to love the same consistency that the Dark Moss brings. With the proven versatility of the S70 Pearl cover stock combined with the new 4K Fast finish the Dark Moss offers the same shape as the original Wolverine. Personally, I left this ball at the 4K Fast finish but plan on drilling another one and trying some surface changes on it. The ball offers a great mid lane roll with plenty of backend pop. If you are looking for a good league ball I would highly recommend this one. Not only does the ball perform great on all conditions but the emerald color really stands out on the lane. Make sure you get out and pick yours up today! Will Tefft 900 Global Staff Member #GoGlobal

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss Ball Review

    The new Wolverine Dark Moss from 900 Global is the ball for when the lanes are Curving!!! This ball has the same core same numbers same coverstock except this Dark Moss comes out of the box with the 4K Fast! My Wolverine Dark Moss is drilled pin over my bridge which is the same layout I put on the original Wolverine! This Dark moss is a great compliment to a Zen and Rubicon UC2 when you need length with great backend motion when the lanes hook! This Dark Moss is overall 3-4 boards stronger downlane than the original Wolverine! Head over to your local Pro Shop today and get yours!

    Dark Moss by RGR

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss Layout: 50 x 6 x 55 Finish: 4k FAST Lane types and pattern types: HPL lane panels with 48ft THS pattern and SPL panels with 46ft THS Comparing the new Dark Moss to the Original Wolverine, I first prepped the OG Wolverine with factory 4K FAST as per instruction from, to make sure I can compare them ball to ball, surface to surface and layout to layout. Using the identical layout, surface and practice time, the Dark Moss did not disappoint me, S70 pearl coverstock with the core made from two different cores, using the bottom portion of the BADGER core and top portion of the HONEY BADGER core resulted in the best of both worlds with this core contraction. The Lacerate 2.0 core really helps with direction changes on any type of lane pattern, surfaces and environments. I did notice that the Dark Moss moved an inch or two earlier than the Blue Wolverine, and it may be because of the coloring in the 2 different Wolverines is my theory. But overall the Dark Moss performed the same as the OG Wolverine overall. For those that LOVED the IQ Tour Emerald, you will be happy with this Wolverine. I enjoyed using this ball in practice on two different THS, and also about 30 minutes on Don Carter pattern, when other lefties were using urethane and they were having fits from earlier urethane movement or no recovery urethane motion, I was able to move a few boards right inside of them and open up the angle a little more towards and at the gutter. Medium strength overall, but it BIT through the pins like it was biting through bones, just like a Wolverine would do.

    900 Global Wolverine Dark Moss review by Trevor Roberts

    The new Wolverine Dark Moss is a great compliment to the original Wolverine. The cover stock is a little bit cleaner, which makes this new Wolverine get down the lane effortlessly, and hook a lot down lane. That is what we need when the lanes are hooking and forcing us in front of the ball return. I probably will not be using this ball unless I’m left of 15 at the arrows. There is so much continuation that I believe the Dark Moss is a ball that will thrive hooking the lane and covering boards. I have the Wolverine Dark Moss between my original Wolverine and my Idol Cosmos. The Idol Cosmos and Hustle Camo are both weaker than the Dark Moss. The color on this ball reminds me a lot of the IQ Emerald which was an amazing ball.

    Wolverine Dark Moss

    The Wolverine Dark Moss replaces the Wolverine in the 700 Series line from 900 Global. This ball features the same S70 Pearl cover and Lacerate 2.0 core. The only real difference between the Dark Moss and original Wolverine besides the color is the surface finish of these two balls. Dark Moss comes at the new Fast 4K compared to 1500 polished on the original. I drilled mine 5.5 x 5 x 5 which is similar to the original Wolverine for the first two numbers but I went with a bigger pin buffer to give me something that is longer down lane and response slower to the friction. After throwing this ball for while it does exactly what I wanted it to be in my bag, which was a step down from the original. If you were a fan of the original Wolverine and were sad to see it get banned from USBC National tournaments, the Dark Moss will be the perfect ball to replace it with.

    Wolverine Dark moss

    The Wolverine Dark Moss is the newest version of the Wolverine. This ball has the same cover and core that the Wolverine originally had. This ball comes at a 4K-fast this time instead of the 1500 grit polish. I found that this ball is going to give you good length and pick up a couple feet sooner compared to the original Wolverine. If you have a higher rev rate you would be able to use this on a variety of patterns and on a somewhat fresh house shot also. If you were a fan of the original Wolverine you are going to love this ball. Alex Thomes #StormNation #StrikingWorldwide #SquadRG #Driven2Bowl

    Wolverine Dark Moss Review

    Layout: 4 5/8 x 70 Surface: Box – 4k Fast The new Wolverine Dark Moss is a direct replacement of the original Wolverine that was discontinued due to hardness issues with USBC. Since I still use my original Wolverine, I went the opposite way with the drilling on this one. What I found on the original Wolverine was a lot of length and very strong angular backed motion. With my typical ball speed, there were times where the ball wouldn’t read in the oil quite enough or in tournaments, the oil pattern wouldn’t break down enough for me to warrant using the ball. Using a pin down drilling along with the 4k Fast finish fills this gap for me and makes the ball a lot more usable for me. House Shot Testing: On the typical house shot, I still saw a lot of length and angular backend motion, but the reaction was more predictable due to the pin down drilling and lack of polish on the surface. Even with these differences, I still saw the angle down lane expected out of the S70 pearl coverstock. Comparative to the Reality Check, I saw a lot more length but saw very similar down lane angle which makes the Wolverine a nice step down. I do prefer this wolverine on medium to lower oil volumes just do to the amount of length this ball gives. If you do tend to bowl on more oil, bring the surface of the ball down to 2000 or even 1000 to see a stronger midlane footprint. Regardless of the ball drilling on this Wolverine, it will still give that angular down lane motion that you all love to see. Sport Shot Testing: I tested the Wolverine Dark Moss on the 43ft Earl Anthony Pattern. As expected, the angularity of the coverstock makes this ball to sensitive for the fresh. As the lanes stated to break down, I was able to open up the lane quite well as a step down from the new Reality Check. When the Reality Check was too strong in the front part of the lane, the Wolverine really shined. It got through the front significantly easier and gave me a ton of angle down lane and went through the pins well. With the higher volume of oil on this pattern, I had to bring the surface down to 2000 grit abralon. This surface change gave me a little more predictability but also allowed the ball to read the oil stronger than the box finish. The motion of the Wolverine Dark Moss would be most beneficial on medium oil or as a step down from any other asymmetrical pearl ball or similar. Adam Chase Storm Staff
