Additional product information:

The Verge line has been so good for DV8. The Verge Solid and Verge Pearl are balls that everyone loved, from competitive bowlers the average league player. We wanted to expand the Verge line by adding a lower differential core to bring you more reaction options, and what we found in our testing was more than we had even hoped. The ball was incredible from everywhere on the lane, and for all styles, we even changed the name during the testing process to the only name that fit the ball; we now call it the Damn Good Verge. Low RG, medium to low differential, a strong solid cover, and a 1500 grit finish is the recipe for this Damn Good ball.

    Damn Good Verge

    Posted by Corey Umbrello on Nov 14th 2021

    The Damn Good Verge is a strong symmetrical ball that loves oil. This ball is at its best during the fresher games of any given pattern. This is a must have in tournament bags and league bags (for those higher volume house patterns).

    Instant favorite

    Posted by Ron K on Sep 13th 2021

    After shooting my first 300 in over three years last week, this ball has become an instant favorite. Buddies drilled this one 45 x 4 x 65. The ball rolls rolls smooth, consistent, and strong. This one will be in my bag for a long time to come. Thanks to Buddies for another perfectly drilled ball.

    Its All IN The Name Of The Ball Explains It All

    Posted by Kevin Nagasawa on Sep 2nd 2021

    Its All In The Name Of The Ball... This Ball Is Pretty Good.. Usually It Will Be The First One Out Of My Bag On A Medium TO Heavier Volume Oil Pattern... Been Using It Alot On Main Street (House Pattern) Standing Left And Playing A Tight Inside Line To The Pocket... This Ball Is Very Versatile I Can Play Straight Up The Boards Or Swing A Few Boards.. This Ball Is Definitely A Great House Shot And Tournament Ball... Definitely Get Alot Of Length Down Lane And Saves The Drive For The Backside Through The Pins! I Can Really Move Inside WIth This Ball And Still Drives Through The Pins.. Great Ball For Any Type Of Bowler And Rev Rate This Is The Next Ball You Need To Order With Your Local Pro Shop You Wont Be Disappointed !

    Damn Very Good!

    Posted by Robert Mockenhaupt on Aug 5th 2021

    The Damn Good Verge is going to be your benchmark ball. It is very smooth, predictable, and hard hitting. I love how it is easy to read the reaction on the lane. I find this ball needing more oil in the front than most balls with lower differentials. Play the lanes with tighter angles and watch the ball do its thing and strike away without that overreaction. Be sure to check out the DV8 Bowling website for additional information.

    Damn Good Verge

    Posted by Joe Goldstein, Sr. on Jun 21st 2021

    This is the very first DV8 ball I have ever thrown. I was pleasantly surprised that the hype was real. This ball is straight money!! I have used it on a variety of patterns from THS to Chameleon to Dragon. This is a great benchmark ball that will give great results from anywhere on the lane. I found it most impressive when I kept it straighter to the pocket.

    DAMN!! Good Verge

    Posted by Paul Smith on Jun 8th 2021

    This ball really lives to it's name...why you ask?? Because its DAMN Good!! I drilled mine pin down because I like the shape when using on medium to heavier oil patterns. If you're looking for a ball with heavier oil don't hesitate to drill this ball.

    It’s just damn good

    Posted by Tim on May 16th 2021

    Being a huge van of the verge solid I was really confused if this one could be that damn good. To my surprise, this ball hit the mark in more was then one. Where the OG verge lacked overall Versatility and finish on liter patterns this one shines! I drilled mine with the pin in the middle finger and and CG kicked about a inch out. The pin in the ring give me a mix of control and finish that I have found to like on these medium solid balls. This ball so great for high rev players as we have seen on PBA telecast, but I have found for a medium rev player like myself it’s takes great to some surface on heavy oil. Definitely a ball everyone should and could have in their bag!

    70 x 2 1/4 x 30 – PAP 4 ½ -> and ½^ - Speed – 15mph – Rev Rate 380

    Posted by Christopher Doerr on May 11th 2021

    This ball was surprisingly strong considering the lowered core numbers from the previous Verge solid and Verge pearl. I am really pleased with this short pin layout on this ball to make a smoother rolling ball even more smooth. Most short pin layouts are 90 x 1”-2 ¼” x 45, but I have found more success with these different angles for myself. Another great feature about this ball is it is purple and has sparkles. Purple balls strike more.

    Versatile. Contender for Ball Of The Year!

    Posted by Derek Kozlak on May 5th 2021

    Speed: 17.9 RPM: 480 PAP: 5 7/8 RT x 2 1/4 DN No-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. Tremendous slouch. Versatile. Contender for Ball Of The Year! The Verge line has been so good for DV8. The Verge Solid and Verge Pearl are balls that everyone loved, from serious and competitive bowlers to your average league player. DV8 wanted to expand the Verge line by adding a lower differential core, Threshold M.D. (Medium Differential), to bring you more reaction options, and what we found in our testing was more than we had even hoped. The ball was incredible from everywhere on the lane, and for all styles, we even changed the name during the testing process to the only name that fit the ball; we now call it the Damn Good Verge. Low RG, medium to low differential, a strong solid cover (Inciter Max Traction), and a 1500 grit finish is the recipe for this Damn Good ball. The addition of DynamiCore for extra hitting power and Durability Optimization Technology (DOT) for worry free drilling with your favorite layout, are always added benefits to help us get higher scores. The Damn Good Verge has an out of box surface of 500/1500 and paired up with the core/cover combination makes this ball one of the most versatile balls I’ve rolled in a long time. With my layout of 80x3.5x45 I can start a little deeper, slow roll it to the right and watch it dig in and make that sweeping, big curve into the pocket and crush the rack ...or I can move my feet and targets to the right, stay behind the ball at release and play a tighter line to strike. I’m not usually a fan of single color bowling balls because I generally like to see the rotation of it as it’s rolling down the lane but I really dig the Grape Sparkle with the bright Yellow lettering. It’s so simple but it really stands out among other balls. Premium performance (and so damn versatile) at the upper-mid price makes the Damn Good Verge an automatic choice for both league and tournament play. I highly recommend this ball to any bowler no matter of their style. Be well, rip racks ...and shred pins.
