The Ruckus Schizo is the third introduction in the Schizo line from DV8. This ball utilizes the same asymmetrical Ruckus core shape from the previous two balls in this line. The difference is the Class 12 Reactive pearl coverstock. This cover comes at a polished finish, allowing it to retain large amounts of energy on medium volume patterns.

The Ruckus Schizo’s strong directional change was best for our testers on the medium test pattern. This ball’s 500 SiaAir / Royal Compound finish allowed it to easily glide through the heads, starting its move in the midlane and providing a strong back end turn. Stroker in particular was very pleased with the added motion he saw at the back end of the lane. All three testers chased the oil left as the pattern began to break down. We just kept moving left on this pattern
