    900 Global Altered Reality

    Posted by Kevin Duncan on Jan 24th 2022

    900 Global Altered Reality Layout: 4.5 x 4 x 2.5 Storm Vector Layout Rev Rate: 325 rpm Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume) Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane The 900 Global Altered Reality utilizes the S84 Response pearl coverstock and proven Disturbance core used in the original Reality. The Altered has big shoes to follow with the Reality, which I feel is possibly the best ball of 2021. The Altered Reality has impressed me so far. It seems that I can get it to the pocket on almost every pattern, which shows its versatility. The Altered is going to be a great compliment to the Reality. During testing, Ryan tested it all over the lane. It showed to be best inside 4th arrow on the house pattern at Fulton Bowling Center. I think the Altered Reality is in that camp of must have balls. It will fit the strong asymmetrical ball slot in your tournament bag. #Stormnation

    Altered Reality!

    Posted by Josh Shoemaker on Jan 20th 2022

    Hey everyone, this is Storm staff member Josh Shoemaker here again with another ball review for the Altered Reality. As always, I would like to thank Storm for providing the equipment I use every time I step out onto the lanes and I Am Bowling for making sure I always look good no matter what! Today I will be bowling on a standard medium to higher volume house shot in a new center. This will most likely be where a majority of my videos will be recorded from now on due to myself bowling league here now. As you may have noticed, I have started to branch out in my reviews. From this point forward I will start reviewing balls from all three lines, not just Storm. The Altered Reality features the same disturbance core found in the original Reality, but is now wrapped in the S84 cover. The disturbance core boasts an RG of 2.48, differential of 0.052 and intermediate split of 0.018. The original Reality is less than a year old and has already become a favorite for a ton of league and tournament bowlers alike. The Altered Reality offers the same control and ability to blend as the original Reality, but in a slightly lower friction package. The Altered Reality has been my go to ball for a few months now when the Proton, Reality and RST are slowing down too quickly but the lane isn’t quite defined enough for the UFO Alert. Before the Altered Reality, I had my Dark Code in the same spot in the bag. When I need a little more shape on a softer pattern, I tend to lean more towards the Dark Code. When I want to stay a little closer to the friction and need more closed angles, the Altered Reality is the better option. When compared to the original Reality, the Altered is cleaner and faster to respond to friction downlane. When compared to the UFO Alert, the Altered is earlier and stronger overall. Head over to your local Storm VIP pro shop and grab your very own Altered Reality today! Review Video:

    Altered Reality

    Posted by Curtiss Rasnic on Jan 12th 2022

    After the success I had with the original Reality, I knew I had to get the new Altered Reality. Using the same Disturbance Asymmetric Core, wrapped with the S84 Response Pearl coverstock. The Reality was a very strong ball perfect for fresh heavier oil conditions, but once they started to break down, could start to pick up a little soon, enter the Altered Reality. This is the perfect compliment to the Reality, as you could play the same line and continue to move in without sacrificing carry. For me, I could still play inside in the oil and this ball would pick up in the midlane, but still have plenty of backend. Most pearl balls, do not like that pick up enough in the midlane to play the inside oil, but the Altered had no issues. Lastly, the carry on this ball is second to none. The pins stay low, carrying the light mixers as well as the higher flush shots. 900 Global created a fantastic 1-2 punch with the Reality and Altered Reality.

    Altered Reality

    Posted by Zachary Woelfel on Jan 11th 2022

    The all new Altered Reality features the Disturbance Core which was found on the original Reality wrapped with the S84 Responsive Pearl Reactive coverstock (pearl version of the Reality cover). This new cover and core combination is a first in the 900 series line and it does not disappoint. The Altered Reality and Reality are great compliments to one another. When the Reality starts to burn up a bit early, I am able to switch to the Altered Reality to maintain similar ball motion in the front part of the lane while creating more pop down lane. The Reality and Altered Reality are an excellent 1-2 punch, go out and get yours today!

    Great ball!!

    Posted by Tenpin842 on Jan 1st 2022

    WOW is all I can say. Right out of the box, I did hit it with a 3000 pad...That is how I am on Pearl balls if you read my reviews. BUT....I shot 794 series with a 300 Game! Right out of the box. Don't get me wrong, I love the Reality! But the Altered...Yeah what a great ball. Some people are different but I had the Altered drilled the same as the Reality. I really enjoy these 2 bowling balls to say the least! What a great ball to follow the Reality! This ball rolls so well. If you have a lot of oil on the lanes, start with the Reality, once the oil carry's down...Yeah the Altered has a bit more back end. I just can't get over how well 900 Global is doing. What a great ball to go with the Reality or enjoy it if its your 1st ball. I can't get over how well it rolls and how much I enjoy it!

    Nothing but the BEST from 900 Global

    Posted by Roto Grip Rick on Dec 31st 2021

    900 Global Altered Reality Layout: 70 X 2 X 70 - 1500 grit and factory polished to start - knocked down to 2000 grit Test drive on SPL lane surface with 46ft THS with a Kegel ION lane machine The WORLD of bowling REALITY has been ALTERED by the latest release from Global. Reminiscing about the great days of my bowling days, I loved the Epic line very much and the 900 Global Reality reacted just like the Roto Grip Odyssey, hoping the 900 Global Altered Reality would be the EPIC SAGA, it was a very close reaction overall. A little longer and stronger, due to updated coverstock materials. But it worked even better with the polished knock off, became less over / under and did not hydro in the front part of the pattern and I was able to use it throughout the whole night of testing, practice, and league play. UPDATE: after writing this, I went and decided to venture to an older center where "bowlers'' don't me as well as the other 2 centers I practice at or bowl leagues at, the lanes are wood in super GREAT shape, they use an older Ion machine, but the Altered Reality worked really well the whole night of practice. I did hand polish it because at 2000 grit, the ball was a little bit too early for my likings. If you are looking for a "BIGGER" piece in your league and tournament bags, this would be an AWESOME addition

    Altered Reality Review by Kyle & Joel Johnson

    Posted by Kyle & Joel Johnson on Dec 29th 2021

    900 Global Altered Reality Cover: 1500-Polished S84™ Pearl Reactive Core: Disturbance™ (Asymmetrical) Color: Salmon/Black/Silver Review: 900 Global really set out a beautiful set of pearl balls. We saw the zen, then burner pearl, then wolverine to fill that gap. Now we have the Altered Reality sitting atop all of those. This ball is a monster pearl, yet still holds the predictability and versatility like we see in the popular original Zen. This ball really holds a lot of energy and continuation through the pins. This core simplistic yet beefy and we love it for that reason. We have seen a lot of success with some cover changes on this ball. 2000-3000 grit pads really change the design and shape for some of our tournament players and compliments their solid original Reality well. We look forward to drilling several of these bowling balls. Kyle & Joel Johnson 900 Global Pro Shop Staffers #GoGlobal
