Never recalled any asymmetrical balls ever being a true 2 piece also but the Honey Badger is. Looks very interesting especially the 16 lb specs.

https://www.900global.com/newglobalshop/?page_id=9206

The S71™ Pearl Coverstock creates that awesome backend motion everyone is looking for in a pearl.
The Grapnel™ Asymmetric core provides 4-5″ plus of flare potential.
Use the Honey Badger™ on medium lane conditions.

The ALL NEW S71™ Coverstock will provide great length through the heads. The cover was blended specifically to give bowlers that skid/snap reaction everyone loves to see. The Grapnel™ asymmetric core features a traditional solid 2-piece core design. This coverstock and core combination will open up medium conditions with ease.

Why is this called a 2-piece core design?
Looks like one chunk of plastic to me.

There is no filler material. The core is completely encased in the Pearl Coverstock. Middle picture 3 piece design with filler material. Bottom picture 2 piece with no filler.

BOSStull, got it and thanks for the information, thumbsup
What is the advantage to not having a filler, I could understand it if I thought you could possibly wear through the outer shell, but that will never happen rotfl so?

This is only my opinion from my own experience but has also been stated by other posters.
2 piece balls are less prone to cracking than 3 piece balls.
2 piece balls tend to last longer without loosing reaction.

There are also disadvantages and are covered in the article below from BTM. A good read.

Your right. The shell won't wear through but it can become saturated with oil a lot quicker due to the thinner outer coverstock. I read somewhere that the actual filler material will not absorb oil so the outer cover will become saturated a lot quicker depending on the type coverstock being used.

This all makes sense,as painful as it might be you can learn something everyday. nelson

Interest read but this statement seems to generalize a bit.

  • When a bowling ball is referred to as a three-piece ball, it is most likely a low performance ball with a pancake weight block.
  • When a bowling ball is referred to as a two-piece ball, it is most likely a higher performance ball with a large, dynamic weight block. Also, it probably doesn’t actually only have two pieces!


For example, does Storm call any of their high performance balls 2-piece? Advertising 2 or 3 pieces would be two distinct marketing pitches in my opinion.

Is "filler" the way weight is controlled/varied on the ball?
If not, just how is the weight of a ball manipulated?
The size can't changed, so are they pumped up with air?
