Brunswick Ultimate Defender (WWRD 2/22/2024)

Four for February!

This month there’s a combination of traction for medium to heavy volumes and shiny/angular additions to their respective lines. The colors are great on all of them. The WWRD is 2/22/2024, so get your pre orders in so you can have yours on release day!

All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

Brunswick Ultimate Defender

@15lbs 2.540 .045 DynamiCore • 12-16 lbs Alternate Core 12-13 lbs • Volume - Medium to Light • Core - Tiered Hexagon (NEW) • Coverstock - Activator Plus 3.0 Pearl (NEW)
Brunswick is expanded the Advanced level with a great addition, The Endeavor. The void of a higher RG pearl is now filled and a new core is introduced. The cover is based off the HK22 tech and will be cleaner than the Ethos and be a great compliment to the Teal Rhino Pro. In fact a great 2 ball arsenal for most league volumes would be the Teal Rhino Pro and the Endeavor. However, if you are just looking for a ball that clears and has a sharper than average motion down lane this is one to check out. The colors add to the appeal of this ball, plus the surface can be easily fine tuned. Check out this beauty at a great price point!

Track Archetype Hybrid (WWRD 2/22/2024)

Four for February!

All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

Track Archetype Hybrid

 @15lbs 2.500 .058 .016 DynamiCore/D.O.T./HK22 •12-16 lbs Alternate cores 12-13 lbs. • Volume - Medium to Heavy • Core - I-Core 3.0 Slim • Coverstock - HK22 QR-11 Hybrid (NEW)
When you seen the QR in a description of the cover for a Track ball, it stands for Quick Response. The higher the number that follows relates to quicker and the volume it could handle. The higher the number, the stronger the reaction to friction. In the Archetype Hybrid the entire tech is here; HK22, QR-11, Dynamicore, D.O.T. This will be a great ball that can get through transition. The Track Theorem is a fantastic piece, but some bowler prefer a sharper reaction off the pattern. The Archetype Hybrid is that choice when the solid version is too strong and more entry angle is needed.

Columbia 300 Pure Madness

 @15lbs 2.495 .048 .012 DynamiCore/D.O.T./HK22 • 12-16 lbs Alternate cores 12-13 lbs. • Volume - Heavy • Core - Craze • Coverstock - HK22 ERT Solid (NEW)
Columbia300 brings a ball designed for heavy volumes in a wild color scheme. Traction and a big back end motion will turn some heads; think more continuous than the Piranha. This is the same additive package from the Cuda, but with the HK22 base formula. There aren’t many solid with HK22, but the tech is being developed to bring new and exciting options. The Pure Madness will fit between the Atlas and a Skip/Flip option. For higher speed players, this would be a benchmark asym.Box Surface - 500/2000 SiaairColor - Black/Red/Yellow • Recommended Cleaner - Powerhouse Clean N’ Dull   www.columbia300.com

All the product videos are found at their respective websites, plus tech videos are found at BuckoshBowling.com Core numbers noted below are at 15lbs.

Hammer Scorpion Low Flare

@15lbs  2.500  .058  .016  HK22
12-16 lbs Alternate cores 12-13 lbs. • Volume - Medium to Heavy • Core - Gas Mask Coverstock - HK22 Aggression Solid (NEW)
If it says Black Widow you know what’s inside, the popular Gas Mask core. What is new to the line is the HK22 Solid coverstock. This time the Aggression Solid package is added to the fastest rising base formula in bowling history. The 3.0 is not a replacement for the 2.0 (still selling greatly), but an addition for more volume and a slightly different shape due to the HK22. This ball would fit above the 2.0 and below the Extreme Envy. This could be a choice if you were contemplated the 2.0 as a solid asym bridge in your bag. Bill O’Neill recently won the PBA Players Championship using 2 Black Widow 3.0s. The Real Deal loves the Gas Mask core as do many bowlers.

Hammer Scorpion Low Flare

@15lbs  2.474  .031 
12-16 lbs Alternate cores 12-13 lbs. • Volume - Medium • Core - LED 3.0 Low Flare (NEW) • Coverstock- Semtex Hybrid
FTF is personally excited about this release. Bowlers who like a straighter attack angles should have at least one low flare option in their bag for control. The Hammer Scorpion Low Flare uses the 3.0 Low Flare core. It’s the same core that was in the Scorpion Sting with the Flip Block removed. This creates a lower diff (.016 less in 15lbs) while the RG is also lowered a bit. This creates a smooth rolling option with the proven Semtex Hybrid cover (Scorpion) that many bowlers can use.

12-16 lbs.  Alternate Core 12-13lbs. • Volume- Medium to Heavy • Core - Emerge Coverstock- HK22 Optimize Hybrid (NEW)
One of the balls that flew under the radar has been the Ebonite Emerge. Those who drilled one (or more) up really liked the performance from a large cored, asymmetrical pearl. The new cover on the Emerge Hybrid, the cover can handle more volume that gives more traction and overall hook. If you see more lane friction early, check out the Ebonite Emerge Hybrid.
