Brunswick Infinity (WWRD 6/23/2023)

As we stated in the last Release sheet, new equipment is coming in fast. There have been quite a few balls that have been retired by the time you read this. There may be more to come. This month’s offerings are a great mix of reaction and price points. We’re sure you can find an addition or replacement to an older piece with these choices. Core numbers noted below are at 15lbs. All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

 

Brunswick Infinity 

 @15lbs  2.521  .051  .010DynamiCore/D.O.T. 12-16 lbs Alternate Core 12-12lbs
Core - Infinity Asymmetric (New) • Coverstock - A.X.H. Hybrid (Activator Xtreme Hook)

The new Brunswick Infinity is placed in the All Purpose category and price point. What’s different is the engine. Using a higher RG, med-high Diff and the lower-mid Int. Diff build, the Infinity core creates a clean ball motion early and picks up in the mids without being overly strong into the back friction but does keep it’s continuation. The Infinity would slot between the Mindset (Big Asym) and the Knock Out Bruiser (Strong Sym). The smoother finish allows more of a footprint and overall reaction on Medium volumes or Heavier volumes that are transitioning into more friction. You can adjust the cover to fine tune the reaction for your needs.

Brunswick Mindset 

Traction. The word that is used most often when bowlers face a condition that doesn’t allow a ball to slow down when needed. Speed dominate bowlers are also in need of balls designed like the new Brunswick Mindset. Using the Evolution Solid (last seen in the Quantum Evo Solid) and pairing it with the new Mindset core, this option will give bowlers that lane reading reaction in the med-heavy to heavy volumes. The Mindset will also be stronger in traction and hook than the original Defender. The dual flip blocks will help the Mindset not read the lane too early. It’s also built with DynamiCore for durability and adding hitting power, plus D.O.T. for your favorite layouts without having to worry about drilling into the pin and voiding the warranty.

Ebonite GB4 Hybrid

All the good things are lined up with the Ebonite GB4 Hybrid- One of the most iconic cores in bowling history, DynamiCore for durability and the hottest base formulation in the industry today, plus PURPLE! In comparison with the GB4 Pearl, the new GB4 Hybrid tractions better in the conditioner and has more overall hook. Not much can be added here except I see the Ebonite GB4 Hybrid used a lot in leagues and in later games during tournament play. That’s what GBs are known for. At this price point, every bowler should have at least one of the GB series in their bag. Bowlers with slower speeds and who need lighter equipment can benefit with the HK22 formulation without breaking the bank.

Brunswick Knock Out Bruiser (WWRD 1/27/2023)

Welcome to 2023! I hope you all had and continue to have a great holiday season!
Jumping right into the new release stage is Brunswick, Columbia300, Ebonite and Radical. We hear many times, why isn’t there something new or why are you remaking that ball again? Truth is there’s only so much can happen in 2.5 seconds as the ball goes down the lane. Matching up is the key to good scoring. Bowling continues to get new bowlers joining the experienced bowlers on the lanes and they have missed some great releases that could match up to their game, needs and growth. That being said, here are some familiar techs as well as some changes to bring different ball motions and reaction shapes to the new year. Core numbers noted below are at 15lbs. All bowling balls (except Polys) have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase.

Brunswick Knock Out Bruiser

The Melee core, it’s simply one of the best cores in bowling. We have seen it different name plates and coverstocks. Here comes the Brunswick Knock Out Bruiser. This option is slated for medium to heavier volumes and can be a great benchmark depending on the bowler’s attributes and what they bowl on mostly. The cover is an updated Savvy Hook 4.0 solid which gives easy length and hook at the breakpoint. Compared to the recent Knock Out Black and Blue, this ball will have more length and a later, angular motion. Pair this with a ball in the Melee Jab series (or your favorite cleaner ball) and you have a great 1-2 punch at a fantastic price point. The color is Blue and Purple and comes out of the box at 500, 1000, 2000 Siaair Micro Pad.

Ebonite Envision Pearl

While the Envision solid was welcomed by many bowlers, others felt it may have been too strong for them. This new release brings the HK22 base cover formulation to the Ebonite line. There has been phenomenal success by bowlers using other balls with HK22. However, this is the first ball with HK22 with a finish at 3000 Siaair. The additive is GSV-X Pearl. This provides more mid-lane reaction when needed.

The Ebonite Envision Pearl looks fantastic! The colors are Blue/Black/Ice. The price for this High Performance is very budget friendly.

Ebonite Game Breaker 2 (WWRD 11/18/2022)

 

Ebonite Game Breaker 2

When a manufacturer has a winner, they continue to improve on it to give bowlers options for different volumes and the shapes needed to combat them. Sometimes, a favorite is a fond memory and a few are stashed away. The Ebonite fans have spoken and everyone wins on this one. Welcome back Game Breaker 2! The same core (Enhanced V2) and same cover (GB 10.7). The update is using DynamiCore for added durability. The smooth motion is needed to help on higher friction surfaces and the cover can be easily adjusted. The price point screams value for a benchmark ball.

Brunswick Defender Hybrid (WWRD 10/21/2022)

 

 Brunswick Defender Hybrid

The Defender continues to be a med-heavy volume choice for league and tournament bowlers. The PortalX core provides a nice, readable motion for an asym. You will be seeing some new coverstock formulas and the first is the HyperKinetic22 (HK22) found on the Brunswick Defender Hybrid. While we won’t be going into the tech, more information can be found on the Brunswick website. HK22 will handle more volume and create a stronger, more responsive breakpoint. Using HK22, the colors seem to pop giving the Defender Hybrid a great look. The colors are Pink/Purple/Violet. This combo will turn heads and so will all the strike. Built with DynamiCore and D.O.T., you get versatility in drilling and durability.

Brunswick Melee Jab Carbon (WWRD 08/19/2022)

 

 Brunswick Melee Jab Carbon 

The Melee core continues to be a staple for Brunswick in the Jab and Knock Out lines. The difference is the coverstock. Changing from the very clean cover of the Melee Jab Midnight Blue to the stronger A.X.H. Pearl (last found on the Zenith Pearl) you will still see a clean through the fronts but an earlier motion in the mid lane. The surface can be fine tuned to get the motion you need to score higher on medium volumes. This ball will be very good for many bowlers and won’t break the bank.

Brunswick Quantum Evo Hybrid (WWRD 8/19/2022)

Brunswick Quantum EVO Hybrid

The Pro level of equipment is where the Quantums belong. With newer technology of core shapes, D.O.T. and DynamiCore2, medium to heavy volumes aren’t much trouble for the entire line. The new core numbers will create a targeted shape that fits perfectly with the Evolution Reactive Hybrid coverstock. At 500/2000 Siaair Micro pad, the surface can be easily tuned to fit your game and environments you bowl on. The colors are a beautiful combo of Lime/Sky/Silver. Check into this ball as a high performance choice for your arsenal.

Ebonite Polaris Hybrid (WWRD 7/21/2022)

 

Ebonite Polaris Hybrid

Ebonite released the Polaris in Sept. 2021 and fans of Ebonite loved the strength and motion that is provided on heavy volumes. We all know that conditioner goes away and the bigger solids tend to labor to carry after transition. Well here’s the answer in the High Performance line, the Ebonite Polaris Hybrid. Using the cleaner GSV-3 cover, you will more length and a stronger backend on medium to heavy lane conditions. The unique core helps maintain flare potential after drilling. There is an alternate core in 12-13lbs.
