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.
The Damn Good Verge is a great versatile piece perfect for when you need a bigger symmetric ball. It is a great compliment to the Black Widow 2.0 for me!
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.
Well, I can't disagree. It's pretty Damn Good. It has a strong overall motion. I compared it side by side with the Brunswick Knockout which is my favorite big symmetric. For me, the Damn Good Verge picks up a hair later than the KO but it is a little more angular down lane as well. They are pretty close for me. I would feel comfortable throwing either one. It picks up nicely in the mid lane and goes into a string angular roll threw the pin deck. For me it will work best on heavier or fresh oil conditions or when you need to get left and still have the ball get around the corner. Should be a nice fit in most arsenals.
Extremely impressed with DV8’s Damn Good Verge. It reminds me a little of the original solid Verge but, this one is a little bit cleaner/longer and retains a lot more energy down lane and goes through the pins way better than the original. I was able to play multiple parts of the lanes and change my angles with hand positions some and still strike, so it is very versatile. This is absolutely going to be a reliable benchmark ball especially on the fresh that you can stick with longerr than most benchmark balls. This is really a “tour” type ball reaction without the word tour written on it and will be a favorite on the tour and for tournament players everywhere, but also a great starting ball at league. It does like to see a little bit of oil as it is a pretty strong symmetrical solid with a cool sparkle traction type additive to it so it will dig in some oil. Overall, super excited and like what I saw from it. Also has Dynamicore and DOT so I dilled mine 55 x 4 x 30 with about a 425 rev rate it matched up well for me.
