DV8 Rumor - Available 8/15/17

Bright look with an all purpose use
By: Matt Bollhalter on October 28, 2017

DV8 Rumor will have you talking for a while. The new pearl cover matched with a new core gives you an all purpose motion you'll be able to use on multiple conditions. I drilled the rumor with a stronger pin to PAP (4.5inches) than i normally do (5.5 inches) and was impressed with how the ball didn't check left off the friction as hard as i thought. OOB it was surprisingly even. it gave me miss room left and right and the carry was amazing. I took the cover to 2000 grit and it forced me to move in almost 2 arrows to get the ball back in 1-3 pocket. Very good ball that takes surface adjustments well and doesn't lane shine too quick. Check it out for yourself and start some rumors. Matt Bollhalter DV8 Advisory Staff

Controllable rumor
By: Marc-Andre Gagne on September 27, 2017

Here is the new serie in remplacement of the Deviant serie, the Rumor. The Rumor features the new Rumor medium RG core abs the new deception pearl coverstock. The ball is designed for medium oil lane conditions. I drilled mine with a pin up 70x4”x40. Because of the medium RG core, the ball gives an heavy roll in the midlane. The reaction and the colors of the ball reminds me one of my favorite ball, the Yeti Untamed. I really like that king of reaction because it controls the backend and the reaction is easier to predict. On the lanes, I play the Rumor 2 boards right with my feet and 1 board right with my eyes of the Creed. The reason is the coverstock of the Creed that is stronger and has more backend. Compared to the freakshow flip, I play the Rumor one board with my feet and one board with me eye left. Compared to the Black Quantum, I play the Rumor in the same area. The difference is in the shape. The Rumor rolls earlier and is more continuous in the back end. When the Black Quantum reacts too strong an leaves 4 pin, I just switch to the Rumor and I stand at the same place and I hit the pocket. If you have more speed, you can pad the ball with a 2000 or a 1000 grit abralon and the ball will offer you more roll in the midlane. You’ll be able to use it on heavier or longer partern. Because the medium RG core, the ball will always gives you an heavy roll in the midlane and a controllable backend. To conclude, if you wanna have a really controllable and strong pearl ball, the Rumor is your ball of choice.

Rumors aren't all bad...

DV8 Rumor 55x5x25 I drilled the Rumor with a layout I like a lot on symmetrical balls. The Rumor is a unique ball and one I am damn sure happy I have in my bag. The Rumor is a medium RG (2.534) medium differential (0.048) symmetrical pearl. One would “assume” that this ball is going to be length/flip. Just like the saying about assumptions goes… I was wrong. The Rumor is more of a control pearl. It can make big moves if you want it to, but it does its best work under a cloak of deception. This ball would be perfect as a go to ball on over blocked house shots where the outside is crispier than KFC original recipe and the middle part of the lane is wetter than Sea world. The Rumor helps me control the wet/dry without losing carry at the pocket. Too often on typical house shots, you pay maximum penalty from over/under reactions, but the Rumor helps keep you in the game. I, personally, like to keep mine at 500/1500 Siaair as I like to keep my surface prep very simple and more repeatable.

A Great Place to Start
By: Dustin Bearden on September 08, 2017

I have what you would call just a standard high pin drilling on my DV8 Rumor. CG about an inch below the ring finger and pin about an inch above the ring finger. This is a great ball to be the first out of the bag. It is a great ball for medium to slightly dry lanes, and you'll know from the first good shot you make where the lanes are going to take you. This is a good consistent ball the gets through the heads easily, but it hooks early enough to maintain good control. It is very controllable on the back of the lanes, and it drives through the pins very well. It keeps them nice and low, and I get a good bit of side to side action on light hits as well. If someone is looking for a good bench mark ball, look no further because DV8 has the best with the Rumor.

The Rumor... you've heard about it - it's true!
By: Dwayne A Jenkins on August 25, 2017

After practicing with the DV8 Rumor for the first few frames, I have to say that this has been the most impressive arsenal of the DV8 line I have used, and has become my immediate favorite because the Rumor has a smooth, continuous, consistent motion to the pocket where you can keep the ball in front of you, or you can follow the path where the lanes have been opened up. This can be your starter benchmark, or ball to finish with. #rumor #dv8bowling

Rumor Has It…..Another Winner from DV8!
By: Bryan L. Williams, PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staff on July 10, 2017

The DV8 Rumor is one of our newest balls in our line. I have found this ball to be best on medium lane conditions. This symmetrical core ball can be thrown from multiple angles and has incredible hitting power. The Rumor is better used on oily-medium lane conditions and can provide any bowler a consistent ball motion on a variety of house and competitive lane conditions. The Rumor’s ball motion is very smooth and clean down the lane. The layout for this ball is pin 3”-5” from PAP. Ball has tremendous control with this layout. The DV8 Rumor provides versatility to any league or competitive bowler! The universal release date for the new DV8 Rumor is 8/15/17. DV8….If you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling! #brunswickbowling, #dv8bowling, #radicalbowling technologies.
