Some might argue that the original Brunswick Mindset was the epitome of perfection – a ball that gripped onto the oil and never let go. In fact, Brunswick pro bowlers held it in high regard, making it their preferred choice for achieving substantial hooking during the tour season. Possessing the perfect mindset requires confidence, and that confidence is born from wielding the ideal bowling ball. The Brunswick Perfect Mindset is the result of combining the HK22 – Evolution Hybrid coverstock with the Mindset core, creating a concoction of confidence. Bowlers who previously found the Mindset overpowering when faced with lanes lacking sufficient oil or requiring increased length and recovery will now discover newfound assurance and enhanced success with the Perfect Mindset.

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


Likes: The Brunswick Perfect Mindset is a nice follow up to last season's very popular Mindset. This time Brunswick went with the Evolution hybrid cover that is also infused with HK22. Rather than adding a polish or compound they gave it a final sanding of 3000 to give it a bit of shine. Those factors allow the ball good length down the lane before the Mindset core & HK22 get the ball moving towards the pocket. I would consider this ball to be my asymmetric benchmark ball and first ball out the bag. Nice piece to work with.

Layout: 60 x 4.75 x 35.

This has become my go-to ball on fresh house conditions. It’s a great midrange ball that isn’t too aggressive, but still gives you a little pop on the backend where you aren’t worried about leaving a flat 7 or 10 early on. I’d treat this ball as a good benchmark ball. The Mindset was pretty strong and this is quite a bit weaker.

Ball Weight: 15 lbs


Ball: 55 x 5 x 40

X Hole (if there is one): none


Rev Rate: 375 rpms

Ball Speed:17.5 mph off hand

PAP/Track: 4 5/8 over 3/4 up


Grit: 2000 Siaair


Length: Earlier Hook

Back End: Quicker Responding Arc


The Perfect Mindset is a slightly cleaner quicker responding version of the Original Mindset.  This ball is better suited for bowlers looking to play further in the oil on fresher conditions.  I can also see this ball working well for bowlers with faster speeds on house shots.  This is a very strong ball that needs oil but is still pretty versatile.  Overall, the Perfect Mindset is a great choice for oilier conditions and more speed dominant bowlers.

Perfect Mindset - House Patterns and Sport Patterns

I was a huge fan of the Mindset so The Perfect Mindset fell right in line.  Very predictable, not the hook monster it might have been thought to be however, I thought the same thing about the Mindset.  Sometimes we get caught up in a bowling ball has this number or that number.  I think the bowling ball has a different opinion once it is drilled and who rolls with it.  The Perfect Mindset is one of those bowling balls you can start with and if the transition is settle then you can make intelligent adjustments.  If the transition is weird then The Perfect Mindset might give you a weird reaction.  I really like how predictable The Perfect Mindset is from the time it leaves your hand through the different phases and finally through the pins.  This is like watching Tim Duncan you aren’t going to be WOWED but you MUST respect it.
