This ball hasn't been the most consistent piece for me (I can't use it at every house), but when I can use it, it's fantastic. As the RG suggests, it goes pretty long, so I like using it on shorter house shots. This ball currently holds my highest series at 813. Not my every day ball, but fantastic when it's in use!

After changing the surface this ball is a great ball. it is hard hitting and just keeps going. i have had a lot of compliments on the way it looks both sitting in the rack and rolling down the lanes.

For anyone who didn't get a chance to get the Black Pearl Bloody Ocean, here is your chance - same core and cover, just a different color. Imagine that: a bowling company that sees the demand from players and gives them exactly what they want! A truly unique motion...does not overread friction but drives and continues when conditions/execution are right. With its thick shell construction and mild asym core for a bit of extra kick on the backend, 10 pins and 4 pins (for righties) stand no chance.

my first CB brand ball and im not dissapointed. the ball hits very good however in my experience its very touchy and not forgiving. a llittle to far out and it struggles to turn the corner. get a little fast and it wont pick up well. with that said ive only had one game under 200 with it

If you wanted the Black Pearl Bloody Ocean and never got the chance. This is the ball you are looking for. This ball has worked wonders for me. When I’m playing straighter angles, it’s very smooth and controllable, but I can still move way in and it turns into one of the more angular balls I own and is still very continuous through the pins.

California Bowling absolutely outdid themself with this ball. Looks great on the shelf and going down lane with the vibrant colors and equals it with performance. Drives through the pins with amazing continuation. This ball will be a staple in my bag for a while. Great Job CB!!

My first CB ball and very happy! It's smoother than I expected for a pearl but the ball has been money for me!

Very smooth and clean through heads with nice controllable turn in the back-end not to jumpy. Love this ball, when lanes break down the ball has a tendency to read a little early.

I won this ball from a breast cancer. Raffle from Colonial Bowling. Harahan La.

Very impressed. Ball looks amazing and preforms well. Little bit weaker than Bloody ocean but definitely very similar. Its been the first ball out of my bag for awhile now.

The treasure is an excellent follow-up to the Bloody Ocean.
Cleaner through the front than the Bloody Ocean with a similar mid-lane read. Where this ball really shines is when it gets to the dry. It does not over-react to the friction, instead, it gives you a very predictable motion to the pocket.

This ball is something else; clean, sharp, strong, continuous, and versatile, versatile, versatile! Honestly, the Black Pearl and Swagger Showoff should just come as a pair. If the Swagger is laboring down lane, I just switch to the Black Pearl and carry on. It's slightly cleaner than the Swagger because it's finished at 4000 and is absolutely a staple in my bag. Thinking of getting an Infinite Physix, think again.

This piece is remarkable and versatile. Clean through the front of the lane, while creating a controllable arc to the pocket once it sees the friction. Great on house and sport patterns... This would be a great step down from your big core piece when lanes start to break down and have to move inside. Great addition to any bag!!!

This ball has great length and never stops when it makes its turn. It is a crazy angular ball which on fresh is amazing.
07-07-2022 11:20 AM
This ball has a ton of hitting power rolls through the heads smooth, flips hard on the end and just carries like no tomorrow. Another get piece to have in your back.

This ball is my go to ball for any house. One of the most strongest balls in my bag for any challenge or sports shot.

No thumb close to 500 rev rate 16MPH
Regional Staffer for SWAG,LORD FIELD, LANE MASTERS, LEGENDS
found this ball to be pleasingly smooth. Carry was also outstanding
Pick this one up you won't be sorry

The Treasure has a tremendous amount of hitting power which makes the pins dance across the deck. This ball has so much movement on the backend it can recover from any part of the lane and still carry the corner pins. The Black Pearl Treasure is going to make the other bowlers turn their heads and ask who makes that ball. BPT will have a home in my bag for a long time. I believe CB hit a homerun with Objet core.

Great ball this ball is very responsive and it covers so much I can play tight or shallow by the gutter and it covers heavy into the pocket
05-29-2022 09:48 PM
The ball is smooth. It reads the oil in the mids and maintains its energy to roll through the pins once it hits the back end. I'm going to throw big scores with this one!
05-28-2022 10:51 PM
This ball is so smooth in the heads but so powerful at the pins. This is a must have pearl.
05-27-2022 03:37 PM
Loving it hooks a lot with my low rev it just right for me. Definitely another one of those must haves in the bag.
05-27-2022 08:22 AM
Absolutely amazing ball! Have this drilled 50x4.25x40. Gets through the fronts with ease and has plenty of get up and go in the backend. Already shot a couple 700's with this one on house and two on sport shot. 10 out of 5 stars highly recommend
05-23-2022 09:45 AM
This ball packs a punch! It is everything that was advertised plus some! I wanted something I could get a little angular that would give me a 1-2 punch with the Fantasy Daze, and this hit the spot. Expect a lot of honor scores in the near future with this ball!
05-21-2022 08:45 PM
Great ball. I was able to throw it with various hand positions and angles and always finished strong.

Excellent ball really hooks and finds the pocket amazing

Honestly this ball is going to tear house shots up for me. Love the 2 piece design as it keeps the pins really low on the deck
05-20-2022 01:34 PM
This ball is on a completely different level than any other ball I’ve ever thrown. With the 100 x 2.5 x 40 layout I used, this ball has no issues getting down lane with the massive RG and has no issue recovering if you miss right with that massive Diff. If you miss left there is plenty of hold, miss right, this ball absolutely wheels. Definitely another one of those must haves in the bag.
05-13-2022 07:03 AM
Great length and very responsive on the backends. This is a must have pearl in your bag.
