    DV8 Intimidator
    Axis Tilt: 7°
    Axis Rotation: 40°
    PAP: 4 13/16 x ⅛ ^
    Speed and rev rate matched
    Layout: 70 x 5 x 35

    The DV8 Intimidator is the latest high end, asymmetrical, release. It uses the Assailant core, wrapped with DynamiCore and the new Inciter Max cover. The finish out of box is 500/2000. This ball, with its bold black, purple, and white colors stand out on the lanes and the shelf. The colors make it easy to read on the lanes, you can really see this one rev up.

    Compared to my Instigator (65x4.5x30), the new Intimidator is 3-4 boards stronger overall with more traction in the midlanes and a ,noticeably, stronger move on the backend. I was able to keep moving into the puddle, creating more angle to the pocket and carry the corner pins better than the Instigator. The cover stock and box surface is strong and will be a great match up for higher speeds and rev challenged bowlers. This will be in the bag every time I’m facing long or higher volume patterns. I decided to take my Intimidator up to 4000 Grit with a Siaair Pad just to see how different it would be. This gave me more skid in the heads with a big change of direction down lane. I was a big fan of the OG Grudge and see similar things from the new Intimidator. I love the colors because it looks like I doubled my rev rate, plus it looks really good on the shop walls.
