Trouble Maker was a revolutionary ball featuring the first core designed specifically for no-thumb bowlers. The ball performed incredibly for all styles, even bowlers who use a thumb hole, but no-thumb bowlers saw more versatility from this ball than any other. Our DV8 Pro, Matt Ogle, had nine (yes, you read that right, nine) original Trouble Makers in his arsenal and has been requesting a cleaner and more angular version. The Trouble Maker Pearl is the perfect follow-up. By adding HK22 with Inciter Pearl additives, this core and cover combination will be just what every no-thumb bowler needs to combat medium oil. Be sure to remember our layout system designed for no-thumb drill patterns and other educational materials developed for the Trouble Maker series; all of that information can be found on our website, www.dv8bowling.com.

I am very proud to introduce to you the newest addition to the DV8 line, the DV8 Troublemaker Pearl. Like its original predecessor, the DV8 Troublemaker Pearl is designed for bowlers of the new bowling revolution…2-Handed Bowlers and bowlers who do not use a thumb. Like the original Troublemaker, the ball has the same symmetrical core, but doesn’t roll like a typical symmetrical ball. I put a similar layout in the Troublemaker Pearl to compare the ball reactions with a simple stacked layout with the pin and the CG in alignment. The ball reaction is simply amazing. You get a little bit more length out of the ball, but the ball reaction is amazing! Pins just don’t jump around, but still seem to collapse in on themselves. The difference which sets this ball apart from other balls is its uniquely large core design. As I said before, I am a HUGE fan of larger core bowling balls because they typically roll much better for bowlers with higher speeds and rev rates. The ball works much better on medium to heavy oil and compliments the original Troublemaker very well. For those of us that use a thumb, the new Troublemaker Pearl is a dynamic compliment to the original, giving any bowler at various levels a unique bowling ball experience. For 2-handed and 2-finger bowlers, this is another incredible ball that compliments the original and is definitely a must have in your bag. DV8 keeps on creating innovation in bowling equipment and has done it again with the new DV8 Troublemaker Pearl. If you are not throwing DV8, you’re just not bowling!!!
