    Xponent Pearl review

    Posted by Sandra McIntire on Jun 14th 2024

    I am higher speed, rev challenged 220-250ish, high tilt, high rotation, and super low track player. I drilled my 900 Global Xponent Pearl 5 x 3 x 2 using Storm VLS. My axis point is 3 1/4 over and 7/8 up. The Xponent Pearl is an awesome addition to my arsenal clean this ball reads the mid lane and comes off the spot hard of the lane. I generally use this ball game 3 of league or when there is a to of friction right. The 900 Global Exponent Pearl definitely does not disappoint! My YouTube video of the ball can be found at:

    Xponent Pearl

    Posted by Anthony S on Jun 14th 2024

    Ball speed: 16mph Rev Rate: 420 Axis Tilt: 20 degrees Axis Rotation: 50 degrees The Xponent Pearl features the Reserve Blend 702 coverstock with the Shrapnel 2.0 core, this ball is cleaner through the fronts and has a sharper motion off the friction than the original. This ball is going to come in handy when there is a medium amount of oil on the lanes or quite a bit of transition on the lanes where you need to get the ball down lane further. This ball fits in perfectly between my IQ Tour Ruby and my Zen Gold Label.

    900 Global Xponent Ball Review

    Posted by Pete Dohan on Jun 10th 2024

    Bowler Stats: Speed: 15.5 MPH Rev Rate: 250 RPM Tilt: 6.6 degrees Axis Rotation: 80 degrees PAP: 4 5/8 over 1 5/8 up Layout: 5 X 33/4 X 21/2 VLS Video Review: I didn’t use the original Xponent a lot since it had a slower ball motion for me than the Phaze II. With the release of the Xponent Pearl I believed I would have a ball that was quicker down lane than the original Xponent but I must have drilled the Xponent Pearl a little too strong because it is quicker down lane but doesn’t have the big change of direction I look for in a pearl like the Phaze V or Zen Gold Label. I changed the surface many times. I removed the polish and also resurfaced the ball with a 1000 grit and then added a lighter amount of polish but just couldn’t get comfortable with the ball motion on the house shot. I have not used it on patterns yet but with the PBA 50 Tour in full swing, and a few short patterns on the horizon, I will be bringing it along to see with stronger drilling and the core numbers will help me blend the wet/dry on those length of sport patterns.

    900 Global Xponent Pearl Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

    Posted by PJ Haggerty on Jun 10th 2024

    As bowling centers and lanes continue to age, competitive bowlers are seeing more and more friction. Because of that, we need equipment to be able to handle those conditions and 900 Global recently released a perfect solution, the Xponent Pearl. A symmetrical core (Shrapnel 2.0) and the Blend 702 Pearl Cover is a winning combination to tackle medium-to-light patterns and high friction surfaces. I’ve drilled one so far and have had a lot of success with it. I mapped it out as 5.5 x 5 and also scratched the surface with a 3000 pad just to tame down the response time a hair. It’s been a perfect ball to use after my Harsh Reality is done striking or my DNA Coil is simply too strong. I’ve had the most success with it after a pattern goes through its transition and I need a ball to create shape left-to-right. If you need a ball for those lighter volume conditions or are bowling on older surfaces, the 900 Global Xponent Pearl should be the next ball you drill!

    Xponent Pearl - White Hot Remix

    Posted by K CORDY on Jun 4th 2024

    My Specs: PAP: 4 7/8R 7/8up Revs: 350 MPH: 15 at pins Layout: VLS 5 1/4 x 5 3/8 x 1 3/8 White Hot Badger Remix!! The 900 Global Xponent Pearl is a meticulously crafted ball that combines the best of old and new technologies to create a versatile and reliable benchmark piece. The ball features the Shrapnel 2.0 symmetric core, which has a low RG and medium differential to rev up quickly and produce a smooth and continuous motion down the lane. The coverstock is the Reserve Blend 702 Pearl, which is a new formulation that offers a balanced blend of traction and backend. The ball is finished with a Reacta-Gloss polished surface, which makes it ideal for medium lane conditions. The 900 Global Xponent Pearl is a ball that can handle a variety of patterns and transitions, and provide a consistent and predictable shape on the lane. Whether you are looking for a first ball out of the bag on your higher friction THS or a go-to ball for the transition situation, the 900 Global Xponent Pearl is a ball that you can trust and enjoy the high scores. I typically play what the lanes dictate, so this ball has the versatility to accommodate all levels of bowlers. Predictable is how I feel about the X-Ponent Pearl. I have only used on THS in league and several local tournaments in different centers and it has become my go to ball when the big asymmetrical and symmetrical balls lose carry. The low RG (2.48), medium DIFF.(0.042) and the New 702 Blend pearl cover blends out the wet/dry issues I have encountered. Same shape for me as the White Hot but more forgiving than my IQ Tour Ruby for my game. If my description suits a need in your arsenal you need to visit a VIP proshop for yours. #GoGlobal

    Xponent Pearl

    Posted by Sean Daniels on May 2nd 2024

    Xponent Pearl - Ball Specs Cover Stock: Reserve Blend 702 Pearl Finish: Reacta Gloss Core: Shrapnel 2.0 Symmetric Layout: 5 x 4 x 4 1/2 RG: 2.48 Differential: 0.042 Intermediate Diff: N/A Review The Xponent Pearl features the all new reserve blend 702 pearl coverstock wrapped around the Shrapnel 2.0 Symmetric core. If the Xponent is the benchmark ball, then the Xponent pearl is the ball for medium to dry lanes that compliments that so well My Xponent pearl is drilled pin down and is still really clean through the fronts, and even though I drilled it to be slower down lane, this ball still really continues through the pins. I have found this ball to be really good on house patterns after the first couple games, as well as some medium length challenge patterns. For a mid part of the bag, I believe this is a must have ball. Sean Daniels 900 Global Staff Member Hillsboro, OR

    900 Global Xponent Pearl

    Posted by Mike LeViner on May 1st 2024

    Layout: 60 x 4 3/4” x 35 The reaction of the 900 Global Xponent Pearl shows how massively important the coverstock and surface finish is to the final overall motion – whereas the original Xponent rolls very smooth and predictable, the Xponent Pearl has an aggressive, flippy backend reaction. It is super clean through the front part of the lane, and picks up hard in the later part of the midlane. This ball is perfect for medium to medium-dry lane conditions. For lanes that are too oily for the Xponent Pearl, the Xponent slides in perfectly. As far as comparisons go, the Xponent pearl rolls very similar to the Summit Peak for me.

    Xponent Pearl Review by Kyle, Joel, & Dean Johnson

    Posted by Kyle, Joel, & Dean Johnson on Apr 24th 2024

    900 Global Xponent Pearl Cover: Reacta Gloss Reserve Blend702™ Pearl Reactive Core: Shrapnel 2.0™ (Symmetrical) Color: Sky Blue/Black Review: The Xponent combines a new cover blend with a core last seen in the Ordinance C4. We drilled this ball with our normal layout: tweener, 350-375 revs, 16.5mph, layout of choice is 4x4x2 (pin is above bridge). The first thing that we noticed was how smooth this cover/core combination is. This ball easily fits in to that ‘benchmark’ ball category. Predictability that is like the Hy-Road Pearl to give an example. This is probably the most consistent mid-high performance (below the Zen line) ball that the 900 Global has produced to date. One thing to note is we did not change the out of box surface on this piece (Often we will blend the covers a bit to be a slight bit more predictable on our house pattern). The reacta gloss finish is looking much better than it did on some previous pieces. With its versatility we see this ball being in many bags, league bowlers and tournament players too!

    900 Global Xponent Pearl by Casey Murphy

    Posted by Casey Murphy on Apr 12th 2024

    Orientation: Right Handed Rev Rate: 400 RPM Speed: 16-17 MPH PAP: 4 ½ over and 1 1/8 up Location: Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO Pattern: High Volume THS VLS Layout: Layout 1: 4 5/8 x 4 x 2 ½ (pin above bridge) Layout 2: 4 1/4 x 4 x 4 1/8 (pin below bridge) This one is simple. The Xponent Pearl is a pearl version of the Xponent. If you liked the OG but wanted a pearl, look no further. My Xponent was rounded and smooth and continuous like a solid should be. As such, there were times it wouldn’t hook enough downlane. The Xponent Pearl solves that problem. It’s clean and it jerks accordingly downlane. There’s not much else to say, if you’re an Xponent fan this is a must have!

    900 Global - Xponent Pearl

    Posted by Kristijonas S. on Apr 4th 2024

    The Xponent Pearl is a new addition to the 900 Global line. This bowling ball features Shrapnel 2.0 Symmetric Core and the Reserve Blend 702 Pearl coverstock. I have thrown this Xponent Pearl for a while now and it has taken me a little longer than expected to figure out where this bowling ball fits best in my arsenal. With the medium differential available in this core of the Xponent Pearl, I drilled mine with my typical pin-up layout: 65 x 4 1/2 x 30. I have never thrown the original Xponent, but it appeared to be early to me and I think the same translates to the Xponent Pearl. The core wants to rev-up pretty early making the ball come off the line sooner while the cleaner coverstock tries to make the bowling ball skid further down the lane. Putting a little bit more surface on my Xponent Pearl seemed to make the bowling ball “read” the lane a little bit smoother and more consistently. I believe this bowling ball will look very good on higher friction lane surfaces and/or patterns that have some friction built-in. I believe that the Xponent Pearl, because of the earlier core, could also work well on the patterns that have a lot of volume in the middle part of the pattern. Finally, I think bowlers that are looking for a weaker alternative to the original Zen, will really enjoy throwing the Xponent Pearl. Watch myself and Verity Crawley throw the Xponent Pearl on our YouTube channel:
