Yes, they are phasing out.

Oh, Nick, you wound me with that statement.

We needed something fresh and wanted to continue with the throwback look. We felt the need to give a little bit more performance without going overboard.

Nick,

What is the difference in strength between SK-13 and PK-17?

SK13 is cleaner in the front with a little more response than PK17. Both are still low friction coverstocks. Strike King is about 2/1 more than a Slingshot and 4/2 less than a Ringer.

Great job to Brunswick and the direction they are headed!! I was on staff for a while and having used them them for a while and this ball looks amazing and I believe it should fit in my bag! I felt for me that the Slingshot was a great ball on lighter conditions, but needed just a pinch more punch if you had to more deeper! Now I have to decide on the black pearl or red/gold!!! Just my $.02, Bruce

Love the new look. Toss up between the black or the red/gold. Will get both just a matter of which one first. Love the up grade on cover and a little beefier core. I loved the Power Groove bevause of the much higher diff core with the PK17 cover.

New stuff looks great.

That black pearl strike king looks awesome!

Brunsnick, I've just recently purchased a Pink / Purple Karma and I also have a 5 year old MoJave (which is PK 17 with the EZ Rev core I believe).  How might this Strike King compare to these.......moreso the Karma though?

These balls look great.  Brunswick is great at appealing to ALL styles and levels of bowlers.  Shelf appeal should be awesome on these new releases.

How would this ball compare to the Misfit Pearl? I'm currently in the market for balls as weak and weaker than the Misfit Pearl. How do you think it would compare with the weaker balls that Storm has coming out (Lights Out, Freak'n Frantic, Super Natural... plus the Tropical Breeze)? I was set to order 3 of those plus Hammer's True Blood, but I could always substitute one for this. I do like my Slingshot, but it was not drilled for my two hand release. I'm looking for balls that will allow me to play straight(er), with a more controlled back-end. Misfit Pearl gives me that on fresh, but starts snapping hard when the lanes dry out. Moving deeper often results in over-under.
