Ball Review 900 GLOBAL: BOO-YAH! 42 Hook 10 Length 12 Breakpoint Shape


Manufacturer’s Intent: “The Boo-Yah! is a 900 Global first, featuring our S20 urethane cover- stock,” says T.J. Restey. “Matched with the high-RG/ low-Diff symmetric Y-Core, you’ll be ready to slap out strikes like never before on shorter and drier conditions. The Boo-Yah! is one of two releases in our new Tour Preferred Series, which focuses on providing competitive bowlers with the tools they need to succeed in tournament play.”


Core: The symmetric Y-core has a high RG of 2.61 and a low differential of .026. We saw 2 to 3 inches of flare with our layouts.

Overview: The Boo-Yah! rolled really well on the light house pattern in the track area. We were around seven at the arrows, playing pretty straight to the breakpoint at six-board around 36 feet, according to CATS.

On the USBC Open patterns, we had a good look from the first arrow with a couple boards of recovery toward the gut- ter. We were on the five-board at the arrows, playing out to the three at the 36-foot break-

point. The hitting power of this urethane ball on these Sport patterns was surprisingly strong, especially on the fresh. The Boo-Yah! has a good chance to be in our bags when we attack El Paso. Furthermore, many high-rev players will like this one, because it duplicates the old school urethane reaction: a smooth and early roll to control the backend. Senior players that still have old urethanes and are looking for a similar new ball will definitely like this one.
