900 Global Honey Badger Extreme Solid vs Pearl

Comparing the Extreme Solid and Pearl is fairly straightforward with a couple of nuances in general. As mentioned previously, these balls are not designed for going sideways.

Roto Grip UFO vs Motiv Alpha Jackal Bowling Ball Comparison

Today I want to compare the Roto Grip UFO to the Motiv Alpha Jackal. This is like the clash of the titans. Both balls are the theoretical strongest balls in their respective lineups.

Storm Phaze III Surface Adjustment

I frequently mention that I typically like to “crack the factory polish” on many out of the box polished balls. This is not an exclusive thing to Storm just to be clear.
