    900G ZEN GL

    Posted by KEITH C on Nov 24th 2023

    My Specs: PAP: 4 7/8 R 7/8 UP REV: 350 MPH: 15 AT PINS LAYOUT: 4.5 X 4.25 X 1.5 VLS I have been bowling with the 900 Global Zen Gold Label for a few months now and I am very impressed with its performance. This ball is smooth through the front part of the lane, angular on the backend and dominate on medium conditions. Smoother and less rolly to my eyes than the OG Zen. I did not like the reacta-gloss finish, so it is at 4000 Abralon no polish. It has a great combination of length and hook potential, thanks to the Reserve Blend 801 Pearl coverstock and the Meditate symmetric core. The ball reacts well to different hand positions and release angles, allowing me to open up the lane and create more entry angle to the pocket. The ball also hits hard and carries well, especially on the light hits. The Zen Gold Label is a versatile and reliable ball that can handle a variety of lane patterns and transitions. It is definitely one of my favorite balls in my arsenal and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high performance pearl ball that can handle some oil. The Zen Gold Label is the cleanest and most responsive Zen to date as per SPI. #zenballgood #GoGlobal #StrikingWordwide Keith Cordy 900 Global Amateur Staff Ambassador

    Clean & Sharp

    Posted by Brad PAynter on Nov 20th 2023

    The Zen Gold Label was a bit of a surprise for me. As the original Zen wasn’t the cleanest through the fronts, I was thinking the Gold Label would still have some of that characteristic. However, with the chance in the coverstock, this ball is extremely clean. That means it doesn’t hook in the early part of the lane. Compared to the original Zen, I think this ball is slightly weaker but sharper off the backend. I use this ball mainly on house shots, and think it will fit in a lot of players arsenals! Give it a shot!

    Zen Gold Label

    Posted by Casey Mattingly on Nov 9th 2023

    Unpopular opinion…I wasn’t a huge fan of the OG Zen. Call me crazy, but I just didn’t gel with it. The Gold Label is NOT the OG Zen. The Gold Label is finally a piece that I feel we have missed for a long time. A strong, bigger piece that is clean and angular. The last ball I thought did this was the Phaze4. The Phase 5 didn’t do it for me…but this Gold Label does it all!! I did drilled 2 of them. One of them is pin up and the other is pin down. The pin up one is 5x5x2 and I keep it at box surface. It’s clean and angular. When I need to get in and wheel it, this ball eats! The other one is pin down 4.5x4.5x3.75 with the surface cracked at 3,000. This one is earlier and smoother. I recently started a night of league with 300-300 with this ball! When I want to keep my angles a little more closed, this is the ball I pick up!

    Zen Gold Label

    Posted by Curtiss on Oct 31st 2023

    900 Global Zen Gold Label - 800 Series Coverstock: Reserve Blend 801 Pearl - Reacta Gloss Core: Meditate Symmetric RG: 2.49 Differential: .051 (15 lbs) The new Zen Gold Label had the Meditate Symmetric Core that was in the original Zen, with a new Reserve Blend 801 Pearl Coverstock. With this new cover, you will see a clean reaction through the fronts, getting plenty of length, with a sharp backend reaction. The original Zen was used more on fresh or heavier oil patterns, but the new Gold Label is a perfect complement to the Zen when the lanes begin to break down. On a house shot, typically I will go to this ball around the end of game 1. Once I switch, I can move left and start to open up the lane. This ball has no issues getting down the lane but has so much recovery on the back end, you won't believe your eyes. I also have found I use this ball quite a bit on some of the shorter sport patterns. I do not have to overthrow the ball through the dry in the midlane, which helps keep the ball around the pocket.

    Zen Gold Label

    Posted by Zachary P Woelfel on Oct 13th 2023

    Zen ball good! The Zen has been one of my favorite balls for the last 2 years and I am confident that the Zen gold label will be a great addition to the Zen family. The gold label is a little cleaner than the original Zen with more downlane shape. If you are a fan of the Zen, but you would like to have a cleaner option, then you need to get out and get a Zen Gold Label. I personally do not think that I would have both the Zen and the Gold Label in the same bag because they have too similar of an option. I have loved what I have seen out of this ball so far and I look forward to adding this ball to my tournament and house shot arsenal. Go out and get yours today!

    Zen Gold Label

    Posted by Bob T. on Sep 29th 2023

    Just used the Gold Label for the first time, and on the burn. Moved inside and the Gold Label did just what I hoped for, it was long, strong downlane, yet quite controllable. Shots missed to the right still made it back to the swish zone, and shots pulled a board or so shimmed nicely and still held pocket. Hard to ask much more from a ball!!

    900 Global Zen Gold Label (14# Review)

    Posted by Daren Seney on Sep 27th 2023

    900 Global Zen Gold Label Cover: Reserve Blend 801 Pearl Reactive Core: Meditate Symmetric RG: 2.50 (14#) RG. Diff.: 0.051 (14#) Finish: Reacta Gloss The 900 Global Zen Gold Label is a pleasant surprise for me. As someone who didn't find great success with the original Zen, the Gold Label provides a dependable motion down lane that I was looking for. This ball floats through the front part of the lane a bit easier than the original Zen and gives me a strong yet controllable motion as it exits the pattern. On a THS, I have been able to play a variety of angles from the track to 4th arrow. I will definitely be putting this ball in the tournament bag for when I need to start migrating left mid-way through the block on sport conditions.

    Zen Gold Label Review by Kyle, Joel, & Dean Johnson

    Posted by Kyle, Joel, & Dean Johnson on Sep 17th 2023

    900 Global Zen Gold Label Cover: Reserve Blend 801™ Pearl Reactive Core: Meditate™ (Symmetrical) Color: Deep Purple Review: The Zen line is quickly becoming a staple line similar to the Hy-Road or Phaze lines. We were happy to see another successful Zen release after we thought it hit a bit of a plateau with the ‘Master’ and ‘Soul’ just kind being okay pieces. Going back to a more similar shape to the original, the Gold Label picks up just a touch later and a touch more overall. We drilled this ball with our normal layout: tweener, 350-375 revs, 16.5mph, layout of choice is 4x4x2 (pin is above bridge). Although the SPI market is a bit flooded with pearls, this is our current favorite of the entire collection. The Meditate weight block really creates some continuous power through the pins that is not comparable. Pair that with an incredible cover and its game over for the competition.

    Zen Gold Label

    Posted by Todd B on Aug 30th 2023

    The new 900 Global Zen Gold Label features the same Mediate Symmetric core in the other Zens, but this one is wrapped in the Reserve Blend 801 Pearl coverstock. At 15 pounds, the RG is 2.49 and the differential is .051. Drilled at 5x4x2 (pin above bridge) compared to my original Zen drilled the same way, the Gold Label is much cleaner (about 4-5 feet) and has a much stronger, almost skid/flip reaction on the backend. I was not as big of a fan as the original Zen as much of the bowling community was. I did like it, but for me it was a ball that I couldn’t throw for more than two games as it just didn’t carry the corners when I had to really feed it to the right. I don’t have that problem with the Gold Label. This ball just keeps on coming when you throw it to the dry. For me the original Zen and the Gold Label make a great 1-2 combination.
