The Intimidator is the latest high performance option in the DV8 lineup. This ball uses an asymmetrical weight block and a new coverstock to give bowlers hook in the middle of the lane with a strong back end recovery. The Assailant core shape that was used previously in the Instigator is a low RG (2.481″) and high differential (0.051″) design that revs up quickly and provides a large amount of track flare potential. The reactive solid Inciter Max cover is stronger than the Inciter coverstock that was seen on the Instigator and Verge. This cover had no trouble creating hook in the midlane while still retaining energy for a strong move at the breakpoint.
