The 900 Global Jewel Purple/Pink modifies the core used in the original Jewel by lowering the differential and raising the RG. This core is wrapped by a pearlized s65 cover.

The end result is a ball that has added length and less total hook than the first Jewel. This reaction gave our testers the best reaction on the medium test pattern. Stroker had the best reaction playing more up the lane than the other two testers. Cranker was deepest of the three and was going around the lane more. He could not get too deep once the pattern started breaking down and had to move closer to the friction and increase his ball speed.

The dry test pattern gave us our next best reaction from the Jewel Purple/Pink. This ball
