Additional product information:

The Honey Badger Intensity will build upon the success of the Honey Badger Revival™ by giving the player that famous Honey Badger™ shape on heavier oil conditions. 

The S70 Solid Cover, finished at 4000 Grit Abralon, will provide more traction in the oil versus the polished hybrid cover found on the Honey Badger Revival. The Honey Badger Intensity will provide a dynamic skid/flip shape on the heavier patterns. This cover has been purposely engineered to give you a different look on heavy oil.

The Grapnel 2.0 Core Quickly became known as a piece that will lope through the front part of the lane with very little effort and change direction sharply. Most heavy oil balls feature lower RG’s to promote early revolutions off the player’s hand. Not no with the Grapnel 2.0. This, combined with the cover, will promote a truly unique shape on the fresh patterns.

    HB Intensity review by Tommy Gollick

    Posted by Tommy Gollick on Jul 8th 2021

    The Honey Badger Intensity is the latest release from 900 Global, in the 700 series. The Intensity has the S70 solid reactive cover and uses the same Grapnel 2.0 core that was in the Honey Badger Revival. The HB Intensity colors are pink and Navy blue and has a 4000 grit Abralon finish from the factory. The numbers in 15lb HB Intensity’s are 2.54 Rg, 0.048 diff., and an intermediate diff. of 0.012. I drilled the HB Intensity with a layout of 4.5 X 4 X 4. This is the same layout as the Revival I drilled. The Intensity slows down a lot sooner on the lane than does the Revival, but still has a good amount of shape through the backend of the lane, and covers more boards and handles more oil than the Revival. The motion of the HB Intensity would best be described as a very strong arch. Comparing the Intensity to the solid sanded Reality, the Intensity cover is a little weaker than that of the Reality, and makes it a good ball to drop down from, if the Reality is just overall, too much reaction. The Intensity has been best on medium long to longer patterns with a moderate volume of oil, so far. The downlane motion and aggressive cover gives me a little too much shape for most medium length patterns. I like the HB Intensity. I originally drilled this ball because the overall core shape reminds me of an asymmetrical version of the core found in the old Storm Atomic Charge and ReCharge. Those were favorites of mine from back in the day. The motion the HB Intensity makes on the lanes does remind me of the shape I used to get out of the Atomic Charge, with a balance hole. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of the Honey Badger Intensity.

    900 Global HB Intensity

    Posted by Cooper Mathewson on Jul 7th 2021

    900 Global HB Intensity Core: Grapnel 2.0 Asym Cover: S70 Solid This year has been loaded with extremely impressive 900 Global releases. The HB Intensity continues the trend. The HB Intensity is a perfect drop down ball from the Reality. I can start with Intensity from the outside until being allowed to move in with the Reality, or start with the Reality then ball down to the Intensity. These two are a killer pair. The HB Intensity is a couple boards weaker than the Reality for me. It also goes just a bit longer downlane...maybe 3-4 feet. That added length gives it a touch more angle but the ball still shows a strong, smooth reaction (what I hope to see from an Asym Solid). The HB line as a whole has been a huge success. The Intensity shows that 900 Global can still make adjustments to make the HB line even better. This will most likely be the strongest solid I will need in any leagues I play. If you are a Storm or Roto Grip fan (or a bowler in general) and you haven't given the 900 Global line a try recently, now is the time.

    900 Global HB Intensity

    Posted by Brian Watson on Jul 6th 2021

    The new ball from 900 Global is the Honey Badger Intensity. I drilled mine 5 x 4 x 3 which puts the pin in the middle finger. The Intensity was a huge hit at our match makers on our normal house shot. The Intensity for me is between the rubicon and a UC2. Clean for an asymmetrical ball but not a responsive as a UC2. Maybe like a beefed up IQ tour. Below the Global Reality but stronger than the Zen. Very predictable. Many styles like the Intensity, as the cover stock makes this ball in my opinion.

    Sweet Honey B.I.

    Posted by Shaun Ciesielski on Jul 2nd 2021

    The 900 Global Honey Badger Intensity is a ball I found to be a sleeper stronger earlier rolling ball for its performance level. This ball has real value like as if it was a high performance ball. I drilled mine 4x4x2. If you are having trouble getting a ball to pick up in the front part of the lane, this is your ball. This cover reads the oil well and feels like an aggressive solid. Its really smooth with strong continuous motion. If I need more length, i switch to the Zen to get down the lane longer. If it seems to be too much too early, you can also shine it. That always gives me the length I need to get thru the front part to save more energy on the backend. My PAP is 5-1/8 and 1/8 up. Usually around 15-16mph, I’d probably be classified between and tweener and cranker.

    900 Global HB Intensity review by Mike Craig

    Posted by Mike Craig on Jul 1st 2021

    I finally got to drill my Intensity up 50 x 4.5 x 30. I wanted to try it out at box since it came at 4000abr and that seems like a good place to start. I am impressed with this one. Still slightly dull but it gets length like a hybrid or pearl without the whip on the back. To me this is what the Rubicon originally started out like. Great to clear the fronts with but not the squirt or excessive length past the spot. I threw it compared to my Hy-Road Max and Rubicon UC2. The length compared to the HyRoad Max was similar but the Intensity read the back end slightly stronger. The UC2 pushed much more thru the front which gave me the impression these could play off of each other as compliments

From the proven Grapnel 2.0 Core to the addition of theS70 Solid coverstock, the Honey Badger Intensity elevates the Honey Badger Line to yet another impressive 900 Global level! Let’s take a look at this THS review! The Grapnel 2.0 Core proved itself quite nicely with the Honey Badger Revival, yet it amplifies its success even more with the Honey Badger Intensity. I believe this cover/core combination actually gives the Grapnel 2.0 a more pronounced and distinct motion than the Revival. On fresh oil, rolling straight up (7-8) it was comforting to see the Grapnel 2.0 retain its energy going down lane and still have a crisp, sharp turn off the pattern. Being a higher speed/lower rev rate player, I like how the Grapnel 2.0 doesn’t “rev up” too early or “stand up” too late but rather gives me a more “balanced” motion of both. If you’re like me with a slower rev rate, you can count on the Grapnel 2.0 to carry when you’re rolling inside (15-17) and you wish you had that little extra hand to put in the ball! The S70 Solid coverstock to me is what makes the Intensity the ball of choice in the Honey Badger line. The S70 cover reads and blends multiple THS conditions quite well! On fresh oil, the S70 took charge through heads and had a smooth definitive motion when it saw friction! When I pulled a few shots left into heavy oil the S70 became my best friend because it maintained a heavy bite up front and still reacted smoothly off the pattern. That smooth and definitive motion continued to hold true throughout the night, even as the conditions broke down. The S70 blended the wet/dry cleanly without having that “jump” when it went into the roll phase. Even after spares with plastic and urethane that always leave a mess, the S70 kept on rolling evenly and consistently. The 4000 box surface worked well, however, being a speed dominant player, I changed the surface to 2000 and found for my style it gave me the best overall look regardless of the lane conditions. In conclusion, the Honey Badger Intensity can be a dangerous weapon for a THS bowler like me. Don’t let the moderate price fool you! The Honey Badger Intensity has a definite place in the arsenal of many seasoned THS bowlers and is great for those simply looking to improve their game! For parents on a tighter budget who want to help their child step up their game, the Honey Badger Intensity is a smart choice! See your local pro-shop operator today and elevate your game!

    NEW 900 Global HB Intensity

    Posted by Kevin Duncan on Jun 13th 2021

    900 Global Honey Badger Intensity Layout: 4 1/2 x 4 x 2 Rev Rate: 325 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume) Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane The 900 Global Honey Badger Intensity utilizes the S70 coverstock with the Grapnel 2.0 core. We compared the HB Intensity to the Reality. The HB Intensity was a touch sooner than the Reality and a little less responsive on the back end, which is a good thing. You don’t want all your bowling balls rolling the same. The HB Intensity is 900 Global’s version of the Roto Grip Rubicon and the Storm Incite. The HB Intensity is a lower-end asymmetrical ball. The intent was to take the place of those symmetrical balls with a low weight hole. The HB Intensity is smoother than the Rubicon. I am looking forward to getting more games on this ball.

    900 Global Honey Badger Intensity Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Jun 4th 2021

    One of the newest additions to the 900 Global line is the Honey Badger Intensity and it’s a perfect addition to the line. After drilling the Intensity and seeing it used on multiple patterns, I’ve become a big fan. The S70 Solid Cover increases the response time, specifically on heavier volume patterns. With an RG of 2.54 and differential of .048, the Intensity compliments the Reality, Proton Physix, and Dark Code really nicely. The difference I see with the Intensity is that it’s cleaner than the high performance balls, but still dig through the mid-lane and continue through the pins extremely well. I’ve drilled one Intensity so far and really like it. It’s mapped out as 5 x 4 x 75. This puts the pin above my bridge and the mass bias right next to my thumb. Also, I left the box surface alone, and it rolls great. Typically on heavier volume patterns, most players are using a ton of surface on balls, which will eventually burn up. Once those balls run out of gas, this Intensity is a perfect ball to go to because the RG helps store energy and continue the response time you’re looking for. Go drill one!

    Maximum Versatility

    Posted by Joey K. on May 29th 2021

    The Honey Badger Intensity for me is a piece in the bag I didn't know I needed. For this Solid, I took and put a tall pin on it, roughly 2.5 inches above my bridge. This created for me a shape that was ultimately rolly and continuous, that allowed me to be able to migrate left when the pattern allowed it as well as be able to play straight and control my angles on flatter patterns. My stats are 17.5/18mph ball speed, 480 rev rate, and PAP of 4 3/4 over and 1/2 up. I bowl weekly on anything from house, to leftovers, to sport and the one common denominator with this ball is that it doesn't give up off the end of the pattern even with user error. This ball is one of the more versatile in my traveling 9 ball arsenal amongst the following: Reality, Zen, (Intensity), Phaze 2, C4, Hyroad Pearl, Black Ops, Fast Pitch, 900 Global Spare Ball. I find that I am able to get into my intensity most often on fresh house, flatter ratio oil patterns, and when I have to move left and fight carry down and I need something to pick up a be just a smidge quick than symmetrical bowling balls. For me, I keep this clean and will touch with 3000 here and there, but love the motion and ball roll when I let this ball lane shine.
