Additional product information:

2021 marks the 10th anniversary for DV8, and we are excited to get back to our roots with some edgy names, bold colors, and an updated ball from the original launch.

The Hell Raiser absolutely put DV8 on the map. The Hell Raiser provided a look on the lanes and an attitude that had not been seen before. We are proud to bring you the Hell Raiser Return. This updated version features the same revered core, but we took the time to recreate it in a DOT version and added DynamiCore to increase it’s durability and hitting power. We have also updated the colors and cover to make sure it looks incredible and outperforms the original.

    70 x 3 3/4 x 20 – PAP 4 ½ -> and ½^ - Speed – 15mph – Rev Rate 380

    Posted by Christopher Doerr on May 11th 2021

    I was unable to throw the original, but this ball will not disappoint anyone. Compared to the Intimidator pearl, it is a little earlier in the midlane but still have the same great recovery. I also took the shine off to a 1500 Trucut pad and this ball became a hook monster. So whether you want to leave on the polish on or have a sanded pearl, this ball can handle easy surface changes when more or less hook is needed.

    What’s old is new, and that’s a good thing.

    Posted by Derek Kozlak on May 6th 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. What’s old is new, and that’s a good thing. The Hell Raiser absolutely put DV8 on the map. Ten years ago, the Hell Raiser provided a look on the lanes and an attitude that had not been seen before. DV8 is proud to bring to you the Hell Raiser Return for DV8’s 10th anniversary. This updated version features the same revered asymmetric Hell Raiser core as the original, but they took the time to recreate it in a DOT version and added DynamiCore to increase it’s durability and hitting power. Also updated is the colors and cover, Inciter Max Flip, to make sure it looks incredible and outperforms the original. The out of box surface is 500/1000/1500 and then finished with Crown Factory Compound and paired with the core and cover combination is intended to have strong mid lane and backend motion on medium to heavy oil, and that’s exactly what i get with my chosen layout of 4.125x5x2.625 to further promote that snappy, quick response off of the dry. The Hell Raiser Return might not be the first ball out of my bag on a fresh condition but it usually sees time on the lanes once the pattern starts to transition and a solid is reading the lane too early. This is by far the ball that I trust the most when I stand left, aim right and full send it to the dry to come back HARD to the pocket. But even with that said, the Hell Raiser Return with OOB surface, to me, reads the mids earlier like a hybrid even though it’s a pearl cover. When I’m rolling it there’s almost a guaranteed chance that a messenger will connect with and take out that dreaded 10-pin ...and we all like to see that. DV8 has truly gone back to it’s roots with loud, bold and in-your-face colors on the Hell Raiser Return choosing Red, Yellow and Black with White lettering. If you recall the original Hell Raiser, or find pictures on the inter webs, you will probably see more yellow used on it in comparison the the Hell Raiser Return. Whatever the case, the ball looks wonderful and I love being able to see how the ball revs as it goes down the lane and as it’s driving through the pins. Premium performance, you won’t be disappointed in the Hell Raiser Return. Be well, rip racks ...and shred pins.

    Everything You Want in a Skid / Flip Ball

    Posted by Scott Crawford on Feb 22nd 2021

    The DV8 Bowling Hell Raiser Return is literally everything you would want and expect from a good skid / flip bowling ball. Clean up front, good length, left turn down lane, great pin action = a bunch of strikes. This ball will be great on house patterns, later on in blocks for sport shots that are broken down and any time you want to get left and open up the lane some. DV8 has been going back to it’s roots with some aggressive exciting balls and this is no exception. Drilled this one 70 x 3.75 x 20 to compliment the design of the ball and resulted in a high flaring change of direction pearl! Link to video here: https://youtu.be/8f0fz5jBA_I

    A Return 10 Years in the Making!!!

    Posted by Bryan Williams, PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staff on Feb 20th 2021

    One of the benchmark bowling balls in DV8’s 10-year history has made its return. The Hell Raiser Return is back and better than ever! Like the original Hell Raiser, the Hell Raiser Return features the Original Hell Raiser core with the new DOT Technology and DynamiCore. The Hell Raiser Return is core is covered in the Inciter Max Flip coverstock, which makes this ball extremely clean off the spot. It is ideal when you have to move inside and recovers beautifully. This ball is layed out similar to my DG Verge, but provides me a completely different look allowing me to move more inside and the ball recovers and maintains its hitting power. Definitely the ball I will use wihen opening up the lanes and when I need a ball for medium lane conditions. Remember…if you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling!!! #DV8Bowling

    A new version of a throwback that started the movement for the DV8 brand

    Posted by Dwayne A. Jenkins on Feb 11th 2021

    I have been waiting for a ball like this... this is the new version of a throwback that started the movement for the DV8 brand, and brought a new flavor of attitude to the bowling world. This ball is just as good as the version of old if not better with the new added Dynamicore and DOT technology. I got to test this ball with one of my favorite layouts from then and used the same designed layout as the old version and have not found any disappointment using it. The coverstock is upgraded for today's conditions, but has lot more hitting power and is very sharp through the pocket. Don't be fooled by the pearl coverstock, it grips the lane very nicely even in the beginning of league oil conditions. YouTube: https://youtu.be/gIlqfmFmDKo

    The Ball That Started It All

    Posted by Thomas Mongeon on Feb 9th 2021

    It’s been 10 years... The Hell Raiser Returns!! The DV8 Hell Raiser Return features the Original Hell Raiser core updated with DOT and DynamiCore. This Hell Raiser is wrapped with the Inciter Max Flip cover. This cover is really clean which means this ball will be best when there is more friction on the lane. For me, with both balls in box finish, the Hell Raiser Return will be about 2-3 feet cleaner and much sharper on the backend than my Intimidator Pearl. This is going to be the go to ball for opening my angles during transition. I can see this ball being in play on softer, house shots to maximize entry angle and pin carry. I’m so happy to see the Hell Raiser back in the DV8 line.
