January Reviews

Happy New Year Everyone!

Welcome to the first installment of Dynamics Review for 2019. The manufacturers are off and running with new ball releases. There are a variety of options for different lane conditions and bowler styles to help you get off to a great start and have success this tournament season.

Storm Crux Prime

Asymmetrical

Solid

RG 2.50

Diff 0.052

INT DIFF 0.017

Crux Prime uses the Catalyst Core.This core has vertical cavity technology.Basically, when holes are drilled there is less mass taken out helping create stronger angle of entry. The SPEC cover (storm performance enhanced coverstock) is a solid. This will be great on high volumes of oil.
Motive Forge

Symmetrical

Solid

RG 2.47

Diff 0.055

INT DIFF N/A

Motiv Forge has the new Detonator core.Low RG and high Diff make it easier to create revolutions.The Coercion HFS cover is very aggressive.This one will help create smooth and continuous medium hook.
Ebonite Choice Pearl

Asymmetrical

Pearl

RG 2.49

Diff 0.054

INT DIFF 0.021

Choice Pearl is an extension in the Choice line.Using the same strong MOD-1 core with a GSV-1 cover will create long skid with strong reaction off the friction down lane.
Radical Katana Legend

Asymmetrical

Pearl

RG 2.50

Diff 0.050

INT DIFF 0.020

The Katana Legend utilizes a strong core paired with the Forged + Pearl cover.The RG is slightly higher, which helps the ball skid longer and store energy.The pearl cover will help this ball be very responsive down lane when you start to see a little oil carry down the lane.
Brunswick Kingpin Rule

Asymmetrical

Solid

RG 2.48

Diff 0.055

INT DIFF 0.020

Kingpin Rule has an ultra low RG with the new DynamiCore technology. The ECA-XR solid cover wraps around this strong core, creating one of Brunswick’s strongest hooking balls. This ball helps low rev rates and or speed dominant bowlers.
Legend

Cores

Asymmetrical – more track flare, stronger hook off the friction.

Symmetrical – less track flare, longer skid, later hook

Covers

Solid – earlier hook, smoother down lane

Hybrid – medium skid, hooks in the mid-lane

Pearl – longest skid, latest hook

REMEMBER: Your revolution rate and ball speed have a dramatic effect on when and how much your ball hooks. The drilling layout is also an important variable that has an influence on your bowling balls motion. The bowling ball surface can be modified to adjust when your ball hooks. Consult your pro shop for options on matching you to a ball for your needs.
