The Tenacity is the strongest change of direction ever in the Brunswick line.  This ball has the strongest backend reaction of any Brunswick ball I have ever thrown by far.  This ball is about an arrow stronger than my Inferno and has a much more violent change of direction.  The Tenacity is 3 and 1 stronger than the True Nirvana with more length and more continuation.  This ball would go 4th arrow to the gutter on the house shot with plenty of energy left.  Tenacity is the perfect name for this ball.  It is super fun to throw and creates plenty of entry angle.

He is the new addition to the hi performance series, the Tenacity.  The Tenacity uses a brand new core, the Tenacity low RG.  The core is wrapped up with the new cover UR for ultra responsive.  This ball also uses the dynamicor to create more hitting power in the pins almost like the Quantum.  The colors on the ball are nice and bright compared to the old color pattern used before. 

I drilled my Tenacity 55x4x70 with the pin under the ring finger and no weight hole.  I don’t use that drilling pattern really often but I wanted to have something strong and continuous.  On the lane, the Tenacity surprised me a lot.   Because of the low RG core, the ball rolls really heavy on the midlane but because of the pearl cover, it doesn’t burn up and clear the heads.  This ball is the most hooking pearl ball I get in my bag.  Compared to the DV8 Pitbull Bite, I play the Tenacity 3 and 2 right.  Because of the pearl cover, the ball is cleaner through the front but you get the same king of heavy roll in the midlane.  Compared to the DV8 Creed revelation, I play the Tenacity 2 and 1 left and the ball rolls much heavier in the midlane. 

For people with more speed, the cover stock is really flexible.  You can scuff the ball with a 1500 Siaar pad  to get and earlier roll while keeping an heavy midlane roll. 

To conclude, if you wanna have a strong  and heavy rolling pearl ball, the Tenacity is your choice.

Welcome to the Tenacity!  This ball has amazing back end movement and shape, regardless of ball speed and/or rev rate.  Mine is drilled 55x5x65 and it is a difference maker for me.  Because it's so clean in the front part of the lane, I can open up my angles easier and still see enough energy stored on the back combined with the angular motion to drive through the pins properly.

If you're used to a Brunswick ball motion from recent releases, you are in for a surprise with this ball, it makes it's downlane motion dramatically and continues.  Definitely a shape that any serious bowler needs in their arsenal.
