Product Rating: (5.00)
I love to use the Protocol in oil. I have this ball drilled to go long and snap hard at the back end. This ball does not disappoint me. The Protocol is smooth through the heads with great reaction in the back. When I know there is oil, this is the first ball I pull out. I have found this ball works great with different surfaces and still has great pin reaction. My favorite is with a light surface.
This ball was givin to me so it wasnt drilled for my hand. I changed the grips and sanded the thumb just to see how it rolls. On our 40' house pattern just throwing games bowled 815 ball was so strong yet predictable, and the ball just hits. Cant wait to try the other stuff now.
Length: Strong Rolling ball that gives a strong backend reaction when you are on a longer, or heavier volume pattern. Volume: My game places the Protocol as a heavier medium to heavy oil ball. Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Best used on sport patterns that have more volume down lane. It goes back into the bag when the midlane has low volume. COMMENTS: So far through my testing the Protocol is great on house patterns and on sport patterns. Those of you that liked the War Eagle will see similar reaction, just about 4 more boards of it. Likes: One characteristic I often look for in a ball is how well it takes hand position changes and The Protocol responds well to hand position changes. In todays bowling world, ball are made so condition specific that hand position changes are often ignored by equipment. Dislikes: I have not found good use for the protocol on lower volumes or when lanes are starting to burn in the mids.
I was truly impressed with the Protocol, I drilled the ball with a 5 x 4 layout and this ball just keeps coming. This ball keeps the pins low when it hits the pocket, regardless if you get the ball up in the oil pattern or just miss a little too wide outside. Great continuation!! This is a great core and coverstock combination. Only the extreme wet or dry patterns will keep this ball in your bag. And as far as sport patterns are concerned, just use a NEAT finishing system "e" pad and this ball will be useful on patterns such as scorpion and USBC open championships pattern. Leave it shiny and can use it on cheetah. This is the ball to buy.
WOW! What a ball. Strong midlane with big backend. Great first ball out of the bag. Keep chasing the oil left and this ball keeps on coming. Dry lanes and hooking heads keep it in the bag. Super adjustable cover stock. Little extra surface or polish and you could use this ball on medium light to medium heavy oil. Just not the extremes.
Need a ball that clears the heads, and obliterates the backends? Look no further than the new 900 Global Protocol. A definite fan favorite at the demo days. Watch it slide down the lane, and all of a sudden...BOOM! A pure rack shredder! Check out the new unique core, watch some serious results! The perfect bowling bag this season would feature the Protocol, 900 Global Hard Drive, and AMF Solar Flare. Other bowlers would call this combo downright UNFAIR. Anything less would be just another Storm ball. Sick of all the big companies? 900 Global/AMF are on the rise!

I really think this is the best ball 900 global has made in 4 or 5 years. This ball just keeps coming it, keeps the pins low when it hits the pocket, regardless if you get the ball up in the oil pattern or let it fly just a little to wide outside. Awesome continuation!! 900 has a great marriage here of core and coverstock. Only the extreme wet or dry patterns will keep this ball in your bag. And as far as sport patterns are concerned, just use NEAT finishing system "e" pad or 2000 abralon and this ball will be useful on patterns such as scorpion and USBC open championships pattern. Leave it shiny and you will have a cheetah killer! I laid my ball out with a 5 1/2 inch pin, pin directly above fingers. If there is one ball to buy for this league season. This one is it.You wont be disappointed.
Great ball works on all except extreme lane conditions. Carries great from all angles.
Drilled new Protocol 5 x 4 pin up cg swung 1" right of center and I have to say WOW! This ball reads the lane with ease and has a strong backend movement. It reminds of an old school snap and not an arc type reaction. With my slower ball speed of 15 mph this thing comes back from anywhere on a THS. What is impressive is the polished finish allows me to make mistakes in and catch hold but good backend reaction digs out corners. Yup I'm saying you can pull it and still strike AND send it wide of your mark and strike! For me no need to change surface right now. I imagine you can tame down backend with a T pad pretty easy. Excellent benchmark ball from 900 Global. This one should be a scoring machine!! Will see what it does on some Kegel challenge patterns in the fall.
This ball is a beast in the oil! I was amazed with how strong it was inside the lanes versus playing up the boards. The S70 cover stock continues its amazing run with Global with another winner. If you have lane conditions that tend to be a little wetter in the middle with back end, this is the ball for you. The first thing you will notice is how cleanly the Protocol clears the heads. This is awesome when the ball unleashes all of it’s energy down lane. I saw very little deflection so those nasty 7 and 10 pins seem to fall much easier with the Protocol. The color combination will also open some eyes, as people will be asking you: “What is that awesome ball you are throwing?” This is a ball you should pick up, for your league shots, and even for a lot of tournament conditions. Global certainly established a new “Protocol” when it comes to bowling ball technology!
