Additional product information:
The ALL-NEW Reality™ brings a solid version of the incredibly strong S84 Response™ cover to the table. Combined with a revolutionary core, the Reality will be the strongest ball 900 Global offers!
The S84 Response solid cover utilizes a technology that promotes up to 20% larger pore sizes. By offering this cover in a 2000 Abralon™ finish, we have ensured maximum traction in the heaviest of oil. The Reality will rival the original Volatility™ in terms of overall hook.
The Disturbance™ Asymmetric core creates asymmetry by having differing shapes on the bottom and top of the weight block. This core was designed with a focus on a shape that will fill a space with the least amount of material, yet still yield the RG/Diff values that all bowlers demand.

First off, this ball looks very nice on the shelf… Secondly, it hooks A LOT! Be prepared to move left and open up the lane with this beauty. This ball can be compared to the Proton Physix by Storm. If you are experiencing a long oil pattern or just like to send the ball out and watch it come roaring back, then this is the piece to put in your bag. Tournament players with high ball speed will also love the look this ball gives them on the lanes. There is not many bad things to say about this ball. It is very smooth throughout the lane and really packs a punch!

WoW :o !!!! This ball is really not afraid of oil! It's THE ball that I will use in first when I will hearing the word oil for sure !! It's a huge benchmark ball. The Reality reading perfectly the first part of the lane with his super strong S84 RESPONSE cover and his DISTURBANCE ASYMMETRIC CORE and continu the same smooth motion to the pins. For me, The Reality is really clean and smooth, so easy to play with no over react at the end. It's perfect also for the low rev player. My drilling is 70x 4 3/4x30. Another great #900Global product !! You need one !! #strinkingworldwide #900globalquebec P-Luc Larouche
The New 900 Global Reality is very eye catching, the colors are vibrant and really pop! I was excited to get the new reality into my hands as I was looking for a strong asymmetrical piece in my bag, and the reality did not disappoint at all. This Ball is definitely a go to on my Men's League which is normally a Heavier Volume House shot and this ball Performed Exceptionally well and had no trouble digging in to the fresh sauce applied to the lane. If you are looking for a Strong Rolling Ball that is smooth and continuous on the backend look no further. The New Reality Lives up to the hype around it, Get yours at your local Storm VIP Pro shop Today!

I have been so impressed by the Reality. I drilled it 45x4x20 and man does this ball hook! If I had to describe it in one sentence, I would say it’s a high-end, solid, asymmetric ball that hooks a ton WITHOUT being a big snow tire… which is hard to do! I think Global hit a homerun with the Reality and I have seen a lot of them on racks in tournaments which speaks volumes to me. Go get one, it’s that good!
The Reality from 900 Global is the first ball without a bolt or star on the label that I have used since 2001. That is 20 years! The Reality has a big asymmetric core called Disturbance, and is wrapped in a solid coverstock called S84 Response and comes from the factory with a 2000 grit abralon finish. The numbers in 15lbs are 2.49Rg, 0.052 differential, and .018 intermediate differential. This is the strongest ball that 900 Global has produced to date.
I drilled Reality 4.5 X 3.5 X 2.5. This is the same layout that I have on my pin up Rubicon. With the out of the box finish on a freshly oiled 41 foot house shot, and comparing to a fresh 3000 surface on the Rubicon, the Reality is a little less responsive in the heads of the lane even though it has more surface, picks up in the midlane stronger, and has more forward roll through the backend of the lane. The Reality seemed to blend the fresh pattern a little better than did Rubicon ( Rubicon was a tad flippy on the backend comparably), because Reality slowed down sooner. As the lanes break down, the lower surface grit of the Reality makes it see the transition sooner than with the Rubicon, and I have to move deeper on the lane, and make moves more frequent to keep up with the oil depletion that is taking place. I usually only use this type of layout when bowling on house conditions that have a puddle in the middle, as it helps me blend out the pattern and keeps me inside the oil line and staying away from the dry boards, outside. One note of interest so far is that the cover has seemed to hold the factory surface very well, and has not really lane shined too quickly.
The way Reality reads the lane is different than what I have become accustomed to with my Storm and Roto Grip bowling balls, as a whole. The fact the Reality is a little easier through the heads and picks up in the middle of the lane while not being as responsive at the breakpoint, will be a big plus to compliment what I already have in my bag, moving forward. I definitely am looking forward to this exciting opportunity to use 900 Global bowling balls! Thank you for reading my review of the 900 Global Reality!
The new 900 Global balls have been consistently great, and the Reality is no exception. It is not quite as aggressive overall as the Storm Proton Physix, but it is the strongest 900 Global ball that has come out of Utah thus far. That being said, it is just a small step down from the Proton. It has a very strong midlane roll which allows it to handle heavier oil conditions easily, but it is a little bit cleaner than some of the other higher end bowling balls. This allows it to handle transition easier. You can keep moving left with this ball until the head oil gives way, at which point the Zen or Honey Badger Revival come into play.

The Reality is a clean versatile solid asym from 900 Global. Usually big solid asyms roll at my foot and don’t do much. They sit in my bag and wait for a “puddle” that I don’t ever see. The Reality is clean and continuous enough that I can use it on more medium patterns. This ball has been out of my bag a lot both on tougher patterns and on some easier. If you’re like me and wanted a more medium solid asym, the Reality is a no brainer!

Video ball review: https://youtu.be/JnSsgWDy2yo
This is the first 900 Global ball I have drilled since 900 Global was brought under the Storm umbrella in 2021 so I was not sure what to expect. This strong asymmetrical piece compliments the Storm and Roto Grip balls like the Proton Physix and the UFO.
When picking a layout for this ball I wanted to fill a gap and have a specific shape. My pin down layout on the UFO made it very conditional and not as versatile as I would have liked out of a strong asymmetrical ball. By placing the pin in the ring it positioned this ball in between the pin ups like my Proton Phyix and RST X-1 and the pin down UFO.
Because of the drilling on this ball it is more zone specific. If I move too far inside the ball will not shape the right way with the out of box surface. I plan on using this ball on medium to shorter patterns on the fresher conditions. I tested it out on 33’ Cheetah after a league night and it was too strong for me to use.

If you want a ball that can hook a lot, look no further. The Reality is a ball that will never be described as a ball that doesn’t make a big movement on the lane. This ball is a great heavy oil ball that will really cut through the oil on the high-volume patters. I wasn’t able to use this ball on a typical house shot because it was just too much ball., but it is kept in my tournament bag for when I run into those high-volume patterns. When throwing I got a nice smooth reaction that will store energy for when it hits the pins creating a nice pop when it does. When comparing this ball to other balls in my bag it is hard to tell if the Reality or the Proton Physix is the strongest ball in my bag at this time. Both of which are great option, if you’re looking for something a little different then the Proton Physix get yourself a Reality today!
