    What a Monster this ball is. The coverstock really makes this ball come to life.. it begs to be throw on Heavy oil. I did my favorite drill 45x4.5x40. Threw on THS and it started up way too early, not enough conditioner on the lanes, even with the ball doing this, the ball had 7 to 8 inch Flare. Anyone looking for a Heavy Oil ball take a look at this one. Contact you local PSO for assistance

    DV8 Hellcat XLR8

    Posted by Bob Newman on Jul 27th 2023

    The DV8 Hellcat XLR8 comes as advertised, it hooks. Out of box I compared it with my Track Archetype and my Brunswick Mindset which are the current 2 big pieces in my arsenal. The Hellcat XLR8 was more by at least 4 & 2 over those two. This is going to be your heavy oil/ long oil ball for sure. It reads early but still has power at the pins. It does not quit like some other balls that might hook early like that. The flare rings were crazy going almost all the way around the ball. For me, I don't see using this on house shots very often but for speed dominant players or low rev players I could see this ball working very well on a THS. Personally, I think this ball will be in play early on any sport pattern over 42' or if there is a high volume of oil. I drilled this with my standard 65 x 3-1/2 x 25. I cruise around 16.5 MPH and have a rev rate around 420. If you like to see the ball hook, the Hellcat XLR8 is for you.

    Stronger and Cleaner than the Original Hellcat!

    Posted by Bryan Williams, PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staff on Jul 26th 2023

    DV8 has done it again! DV8 has taken the proven Hellraiser core and wrapped it in the new Maximum Havoc coverstock and created the new Hellcat ELR8! The new Hellcat ELR8 is much stronger than the original Hellcat, but much cleaner through the heads. The Hellraiser core allows any bowler to create a more angular reaction in the backends. This ball works exceptionally well on heavy oil and flatter oil patterns. I drilled this ball with a 45x4x35 layout to provide continuous ball motion through the oil and dynamic hitting power through the pins. If you are looking for a very strong asymmetrical ball, look no further than the new DV8 Hellcat XLR8.
