    Instigator has been a great favorite of mine.

    Posted by Dwayne A. Jenkins on Jan 23rd 2020

    This is a ball that has been very faithful in my league and tournament play. I have multiple of these and have used multiple layouts, and the Instigator has been a great favorite of mine. I love the fact that the coverstock is surface-friendly; use a textured surface and expect the ball to grab traction at your feet, but use mild to shiny surface and see the potential of backend reaction unlike any high performance ball I personally have ever seen. I love the motion and the clean hitting power the Instigator gives on the lanes.

    Hooking monster

    Posted by Marc-Andre Gagne on Sep 29th 2019

    Here is the brand-new high-end ball for DV8, the Instigator. This ball features a new core called assailant and a brand-new cover called Inciter solid. It comes with a 500-3000 siaair pad finish. This combination allows the ball to have a longer skid phase and a sharper backend which is surprising for a strong solid ball. The ball offers the DOT technology which allows you to drill whenever you want without worrying about the pin placement. It also offers dynamicore.
    Since the ball was design to be really strong, I went with un pin down 75 x 4 x 80 drilling. This drilling my favorite pin down option.
    On the lane, I was surprised by the continuation of the ball. Even if it’s a strong solid ball, the ball just never quit. I compared it to last year notorious and this year vapor zone solid. I was able to play the ball 3 with my feet and 2 with my eyes left of both ball. Even if the ball is strong and dull, I was surprise by how long it goes down the lane.
    We has a demo the other at my center and most of the players were loving this ball whatever their style was. It can suit high speed player easily because the cover is strong enough. It also can suit slower player if they stay in the oil. Since the surface is at 3000, it can be adjusted to suits better players who are speed dominant.
    To conclude, if you want to have a really strong ball to play in the oil, or you’re a speed dominant, this ball won’t disappoint you.

    Awesome Heavy Oil Ball

    Posted by Dustin Bearden on Jul 24th 2019

    If you need to tackle heavy oil, the DV8 Instigator is the PERFECT ball to do this. It starts off by featuring DOT and Dynamacore technology, and it has that industry best 4 year warranty. The colors on this ball are fantastic as well, and this gives the ball great shelf appeal, and it also makes it look great going down the lane. The best part about the DV8 Instigator is that the performance matches the good looks. It gives a good strong read in the mid lane, yet, it still manages to save enough energy to demolish the pins. With the added Dynamacore technology, a bowler using this ball will simply carry more strikes. The Dynamacore hit will make a bowler think that the pocket has gotten bigger. More light and heavy strikes will carry, and your scores will go up. So, if you are looking for a great looking, good carrying, heavy hooking ball, the DV8 Instigator is exactly what you are looking for.
