The Dark Matter is the third release in the Tour Preferred line from 900 Global, joining the Boo-Yah and Chemical X from earlier this year. This ball uses a brand new coverstock named S60 Solid that comes out of the box with a 1500 grit polished finish. The Dark Matter uses the new Dome Symmetric core, which has both a moderate RG and a moderate total differential.

We liked the Dark Matter best on our medium test pattern. Cranker liked it just a little more than the other two testers on this condition. His higher rev rate allowed him to see more recovery downlane, creating better angles through the pins
