    Posted by Tarik Joyner on Nov 23rd 2021

    Tarik joyner 900 global staffer 17mph ball 450 rev rate If you wanted a stronger zen you got it with this ball for sure!!!!!  I drilled this one 45X4X40 and WOW!!!! I was able to play about 12 to 5 with it and just move left and never lost the power to the pocket at all in league..  throwing it on challenge patterns or sport shots with longer oil 42-45FT was and still is first ball out the bag the ball is smooth and strong!!!! And plays amazing compliment to the original Zen...  From the lower rev bowler that needs a little more in the back ends in league to the high rev speed dominate bowler who needs it to make that turn and toss those pins around the Zen master has a place in everyone's bag for sure Tarik joyner 900 global staffer

Intended to handle more volume it is my first ball used on the fresh in league and the perfect 1-2 combination with the pearl. More control from a multitude of angles depending on your style. My best looks were from playing the track, then moving in playing steeper angles with slower ball speeds. As always the cover takes adjustments well, which I prefer mine close to oob with lane shine. #GoGlobal #StrikingWorldwide #stormnation

    Middle of the bag, predictable, USEABLE

    Posted by kennon mcfalls on Nov 17th 2021

    The Zen Master is 900 Global's Axiom/Idol shape. For me the Master fits into that stronger symmetrical solid slot. Distinguishing the Zen Master from the Axiom/Idol is fairly simple. Here is the order from strongest to weakest. Axiom, Idol, Zen Master, Phaze II. Relatively speaking, the Zen is closest to the idol in overall strength, but it has just a tad more shape down the lane. I have enjoyed success with the Zen master on House conditions and flat reverse blocks. It's controllable enough to relax my hand and tumble it, but it doesn't sacrifice downlane motion when I get my hand around it like the Axiom does.

    900 Global Zen Master

    Posted by Brian Watson on Nov 17th 2021

    The Zen Master is 2nd Zen ball from 900 Global. The Zen was and still a huge hit among bowlers. So they created the Zen Master. I drilled mine with a 5 inch pin down. To me the zen core (Meditate Symmetric) is a little early rolling for me. So with the stronger cover is why I decided to drill mine pin down. The Zen Master does roll early for me and has a slow response to the friction down lane. Which is a good thing for when your wanting to keep your angles a little closed and play up the lane and to control the backs when they are really clean. The Zen Master does remind me a little of the Phaze II but with a little less backend motion. I can see the Zen Master working well for the tougher lane patterns and the shorter patterns where you need control. High rev guys and 2 handers would also like the motion from the Zen Master as it shouldn't over bounce off the dry. Brian Watson Pro Shop Staff PAP - 4 up 1 1/8 Tilt - 17 RPM - 400 Speed - 16-17

    900 Global Zen Master Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Nov 8th 2021

    900 Global Zen Master Ball Review by PJ Haggerty One of the most popular balls developed this year was the Zen by 900 Global. As a compliment to the Zen, the Zen Master was created. The Master has the S77 Response Solid Cover wrapped outside of the Meditate Symmetric Core and is designed for medium-heavier oil patterns. As of now, this is the strongest symmetric ball in the 900 Global Line. I’ve drilled one so far and really like it. With an RG of 2.49 and differential of .051, I wanted to drill it with the intent of something early, forward, and a slower response time. My goal is to use it on heavier volume and longer patterns. I mapped this out as 4 x 4 x 70. This puts the pin above my ring finger and I’ve left the surface alone too. I’ve noticed the Zen Master compliments some of the high-performance, asymmetrical balls really well, but more importantly, is an earlier, more round version of the original Zen. If you need a ball that digs in the mid-lane, is perfect for some of the higher volume patterns, especially on the fresh. Go drill a Zen Master! I think you’ll be impressed!

    Th 900 Global Zen Master

    Posted by Rick Klimowicz on Nov 7th 2021

    Zen Master • Prime • 800 Series Coverstock • S77 Response Solid Reactive • Finish 3000 Grit Abralon Core• Meditate Symmetric Weight 15lb • RG 2.49 •Differential 0.051 Layout • 70 x 4 x 20 Tester PAP = 4 ½ R x 3/8 D • Tester Axis Tilt = 12° •Testers Rev Rate = 325 Test Pattern = 42' THS (Typical House Shot) • Modified, Kegel Stone Street 900 Global has once again found a stroke of genius with the release of the Zen Master. With the proven Meditate massive symmetric core combined with the S77 Response Solid Reactive cover, the Zen Master lives up to the performance and excellence you can expect in the 900 Global line. So, let's take a look at how the Zen Master handled a THS. The Meditate core is an absolute must for straighter and down-and-in players like me. It's almost like having the best of both worlds. I love this core's ability to rev up early with its strong symmetric design. And because of its massive size and density, the Meditate core rolls off the pattern with a destructive force like that of a strong asymmetric. I felt comfortable and confident with the Meditate core's strong continuation through the pins, especially when I knew I had missed. Even those predictable ten pins were no match for the intensity the Meditate core provided early on in league conditions. There is no doubt in my mind the Meditate core produces results. If you are a high-speed/low-rev player like me, the S77 Response Solid reactive cover defines why the Zen Master is a must-have for your arsenal. Playing on fresh oil with the 3000 box finish, I could enjoy playing straight-up ten with ease. I like how this cover cuts its path cleanly through the front part of the lanes and has a biting turn-off the pattern. As the night began to transition, the S77 solid reactive cover continued to make the Zen Master perform flawlessly. I was able to move in and target 15 without any problems or second thoughts of where my line should be. And I like having that kind of confidence! On a different night, I surfaced the cover to 4000 grit Abralon as my goal was to see if I could get through three games with this cover's strength. And I was not disappointed - even for a high-speed/low-rev player like me, this ball delivered, and the S77 Response Solid Cover gets the job done. However, I recommend that players like me keep the S77 Response Solid cover at the 3000-grit Abralon box surface. And use the Zen Master on fresh oil and during the transition game where it will be most beneficial. In concluding my review of the Zen Master from 900 Global, I have found this ball to be a powerful piece of machinery for players like me. High-speed/low-rev players will find the Zen Master will deliver excellent results on fresh oil and medium THS conditions without hesitation. The Zen Master can stand on its own but would also be a great compliment ball between the Reality and Burner Solid from 900 Global. I would highly suggest talking to your local pro shop operator today and finding a place for the Zen Master in your arsenal!

    The Strong Symmetrical you need

    Posted by Brad Paynter on Nov 5th 2021

    The Zen master is the ball I was missing out of my bag. Its reliable, reads early, and continues. With the success of the original zen, its no surprise the zen master is this good. I have found success with this early on on house shots, and on a variety of sport patterns. I even had success with this on cheetah. It read up perfectly and didn’t lose power as it rolled out. If you need a strong symmetrical ball, look no further.

    Best complement to the original Zen

    Posted by P-Luc Larouche on Nov 2nd 2021

    The 900 Global zen for me is the perfectly versatile ball for oiled conditions. It give me great result even if I want to play straighter or more one side to the other of the lane. It's my benchmark ball to begin to play when I know that it have oil on the lane. If it's not enought agressive I will go with the reality, or the aspect if is too strong. It's also a ball that I will play a long moment before need to change it. She give me great result as long as it will have oil zone on the lane. So, the original zen is maybe the ball of the year but the zen master, the best complement of the year. #goglobal

    To Zen or not to Zen

    Posted by Bowling Bigger on Oct 27th 2021

    Color: Megenta/Black/Green Core: Meditate Symmetric Coverstock: S77 Response Solid Reactive Finish: 3000 Grit Abralon Hook Potential: High Length: Medium Recommended Lane Condition: Medium-Heavy Oil RG: 2.50 (for 14# ball) Differential: 0.051 (for 14# ball) The Zen Master is a very strong ball. It hooks more then the original Zen and is a little smoother having the solid cover. On THS this ball would be a great option for longer THS or heavier volumes. On drier THS or shorter THS, this ball might be too much for slower speed and higher rev players. Layout: 55 x 4 5/8 x 55 which puts the pin in my ring finger. surfaces tried 1000, 500/2000, 500/3000. Sport Shot: This ball was so much better on sport shots then on THS for me. This worked extremely well on 46ft Dragon. I found 500/3000 to be the best surface for me. Compared to the original Zen, this ball was more controllable but sometimes would just hit flat after burning up in the dry. If you are a speed dominant player or matched, then this ball will shine. If you are rev dominant with slower speeds this might be a hard ball to succeed with and will be more lane pattern specific. Dan Schank PBA Member Storm Pro Shop Staff Turbo Grips Staff
