900 Global Follows up their most popular bowling ball ever with a solid version - zen master
The Layouts For Drilling of the 900 Global Zen Master Bowling Balls
Angel’s layout as always is 5 x 3 ½ x 3 ½, putting the pin above her bridge, mine is 4 ¾ x 3 ½ x 3 ½, putting the pin in my ring finger, and because this is a symmetric core, the cg placement doesn’t matter.
The Zen Masters Solid Coverstock Is Great For Oil Paired With The Meditate Symmetric Core
The Zen Master features the S77 Response solid coverstock and incredibly strong symmetric Meditate core. Global covers give you some semblance of their strength with the number in the cover name, S77 is getting up on the strong side and is currently Global’s second strongest cover, and it feels like it’s in Incite territory, or like the solid version of that coverstock would be the best frame of reference, it’s really strong, early, and smooth. The Meditate core is the same one from the Zen, 2.49 RG and an .051 differential in 15 pounds,, and it’s very strong, early, and rolly, reminds me a lot of the Centripetal HD core from the Son!Q and Super Son!Q, so I think that’s why the Zen has been so popular, it’s the best of several different worlds. It’s a really smooth and blendy ball that’s squarely in Phaze 2 territory. I think it’s actually a bit earlier and smoother, it feels like it’s trying to roll a little sooner and it definitely rolls a bit heavier, but realistically the difference is pretty small. There aren’t a lot of nuances to talk about here, the ball reaction is pretty straightforward. It hooks a lot and is really smooth.
The 900 Global Zen Masters Ratings For Hook, Length and Backend
For ratings, once again it’s solidly in Phaze 2 territory but I think even a bit stronger and earlier, so approaching Axiom strength and length, but a bit slower, so the Zen Master gets a 9 for hook potential, a 4 for length and a 4 for backend.

900 Global Zen Master Bowling Ball
The S77 Response™ Solid Coverstock was the obvious choice to follow up on the success of the S77 Response™ pearl coverstock. The Solid version of this cover will provide the most overall hook we have ever put in the 800 Series. The Zen Master™ will be a great ball to use on medium-heavy patterns.
The Meditate™ Core is the biggest core we have ever put into a bowling ball!! A bigger core means more hitting power combined with a more consistent reaction. Throughout testing the Meditate™ Core provided that wide “footprint on the lane that all bowlers love to see. The Zen Master™ pushes the limits of core dynamics.
