DV8 Captiv8 (WWRD 2/23/2023)

February is bringing some new tech and exciting updates in equipment to get ready for tournament season. This month’s choices are from DV8, Hammer and Track. There is a good mix in reactions and intentions with these 4 and 2 are built the hottest cover base in bowling-HK22. More info is available at - https://brunswickbowling.com/products/hyperkinetic22Core numbers noted below are at 15lbs. All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

DV8 Captiv8

DV8 has brought the HK22 base formulation to the lower price point without giving up performance. Slated for medium to dry conditions, the DV8 Captiv8 would be perfect for late game transitions and older, high friction centers. Usually balls built around this idea are clean and smooth throughout the ball motion. This beautiful Gold/Silver/Emerald choice has a new core that is built to assist the cover so it reacts at the right place down lane. I see a sharper move later (due to the HK22 as seen in other products) but something that you don’t have to over thrown to get the ball where you need it to get to the pocket. Bowlers that are rev dominant can use this without having to go to bigger pieces and alter the surface.
