Whether you've been a bowler for three decades or are relatively new to the game, chances are you're familiar with and appreciate the legacy of the Rhino Pros. When Reactive Resin first emerged in the bowling world, Brunswick wasted no time in making a splash with the Rhino Pros. It's incredible to think that the Teal Rhino Pro was introduced a staggering 30 years ago. What's even more incredible is that a ball with such vintage charm has risen to the top of Brunswick's most requested reintroductions. Brunswick is thrilled to bring back the Teal Rhino Pro to satisfy the nostalgic cravings of bowlers and pay tribute to this significant piece of history. To ensure the ball performs exceptionally well on modern lane conditions, Brunswick has upgraded the cover technology to the robust Activator Plus 3.0 Solid. However, they have stayed true to the core concept by retaining the original lightbulb shape without an outer ring, just as it was produced three decades ago. This ball is a true powerhouse, delivering impressive durability, outstanding performance, and carrying the weight of history. Don't miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to experience a piece of bowling history.

At first the Teal Rhino Pro had me wondering where I'd use it.  For me it's best game 3 when I want control that still carries a punch.  I did add a small amount of compound for a little more length, and now it has a definite spot in the normal rotation.  Sold one to a teammate who is a two hander and it's first and last ball out of the bag. 
If you like smoooooth then consider the Teal Rhino Pro!  Thank you for considering Brunswick.

The Teal Rhino Pro For me is the First Ball out of my Bag on the Typical League House Shots...  The Teal Rhino Pro gives me the smooth powerful transition down lane that i like to see on the house shots.  This Vintage Teal Rhino Pro allows me to stay in the pocket longer without having to make big moves which is what really draws me to throwing this ball in league....    If you're looking for a new ball for league nights, Get a New Teal Rhino Pro  you will not be disappointed

Teal Rhino Pro - House patterns

Throwback Good ole Teal Rhino.  It is hard to describe the original teal Rhino I was too young to understand how good it was and what it was supposed to do.  I just wanted to see HOOK.  I remember sanding the original teal Rhino so much it looked like dust rolling up the lane.  I got it to hook though.  Now to the current Teal Rhino, I like what I see and understand now.  I can play straight, and I can cover boards with the Teal Rhino, I leave a good amount of back row with the Teal Rhino so I have to be careful how many boards I am covering but, back to my childhood I go wanting to see it HOOK so it’s still fun to watch.  I have seen at least for me keeping the cover one way or the other is the best way to go.  Meaning if you clean it, clean it often, if you like it polished, keep it polished, if you like it with surface, keep the surface on it.  I know in one three game set if I use surface on the Teal Rhino Pro I am going to get a different shape and finish through the pins if I am still using it game three.  With polish I get the same motion all night but, I don’t like the Teal Rhino diving off the spot extremely hard.  So it’s a mixed bag of what do I want to see on any given night.

A Throwback 30 years in the making!

Bryan Williams, PBA and DV8 Pro Staff

The Brunswick Teal Rhino Pro is a re-release of one of the most popular balls ever created by Brunswick.  It was 30 years ago when the Teal Rhino Pro shook the bowling world to its core.  The Teal Rhino Pro has the same lightbulb shaped core from the original release 30 years ago, but the new Teal Rhino Pro now has been updated with the Activator Plus 3.0 solid cover, giving this ball the smooth and predictable ball movement known for this ball.  The Teal Rhino Pro is incredibly smooth, controllable and predictable going down the lane.  This ball is by far one or the most consistent and predictable balls on the market today.  This ball can be used on multiple types of lane conditions for bowlers of all skill levels.  Definitely a must have in your bag!

The new Teal Rhino Pro is a great throwback to one of the greatest balls of all time.  This one is very smooth rolling just like the original except stronger.  The updated coverstock shows up big time in this one allowing me to cover plenty of boards.  This is a great benchmark ball for bowlers who are rev dominant to a match.  It is also a great smoother ball down option for those bowlers who have a little more speed.  This one will be good for all styles.  Don't miss out on one of the greatest ever making a return with new technology!
