The Brunswick Prism Warp Hybrid high-performance bowling ball has a stronger coverstock than the original Prism Hybrid with the updated Activator Composite Technology 2.0 (A.C.T. 2.0). This has a skid-flip reaction that is the best that Brunswick has ever created to date. The A.C.T. 2.0 Hybrid coverstock paired with the successful Portal core gives this ball awesome length with a sharp breakpoint and the ability to perfectly maneuver the transition.

The Prism Warp Hybrid is as good as they say it is.  It is really clean through the fronts while reading the mids very well.  Makes a really strong move off the break point and does not quit going through the pins.  Drilled mine 10 X 4 1/2 X 30 to help blend out the cliff on a house condition.  Even though this drill revs up early, the ball still clears the front extremely well.  It is the first ball out of the bag when I start the night.  Rev rate--375.  Ball speed--16-17mph.  Axis tilt--7 degrees.  PAP--5 1/8 over by 3/4 up.  If your looking for something to clear the front with a hard move off the break point and not quit going through the pin.  This is the ball for you.

Prism Warp Hyb is a ball for all occasions. Has a nice clean move thru the mids and strong motion thru the pin deck. Great when paired with the Priam Warp as a 1-2 punch out of the bag

COMMENTS


Likes: Backend Recovery, Sure Midlane Read



Dislikes: none


The Prism Warp Hybrid is clean through the fronts with a strong backend motion. It builds on the characteristics of both the original Prism Warp and the Prism Hybrid. This one is long like the Hybrid but with a little more rounded shape like the Prism Warp. It is a great step down when balls like the Warp are too much and too early. This one seems to be pretty good from the track area inside and seems to be very versatile. It possesses the recovery to get back from steep angles but also has the ability to blend the lane due to the little bit of additional midlane. This first Prism Hybrid was a big time hit and I expect this one to be just that much better due to the extra versatility.

COMMENTS

The Prism Warp Hybrid is a amazing asymmetrical piece that complements the Prism Warp.  The Hybrid is about 4 feet cleaner through fronts but reads the midlane and is more continuous than the  Warp.  If you love the Warp, get a Warp Hybrid, you will not be disappointed.

[The entire Prism line is amazing and the Prism Warp line in the next step above. The Prism Warp hybrid is the perfect ball to go to when the Prism Warp solid or any solid you are throwing needs a little push through the front. This ball doesn’t back off on the backend and its continuous motion is strong off the spot. The ball is extremely predictable but has the ability to create a little more room down lane which is what you want as lanes start to break down.

I never feel like I have to be “perfect” with this ball. It’s got great recovery and overall reaction.

   This ball is stronger than the original Prism Hybrid so I put a little weaker layout on this one to get a similar reaction.  I got exactly that and a little bit more power through the pins.  Clean through the front part of the lane and a nice transition down lane with a lot or hitting power.

I have found the Prism Warp Hybrid to be one of the best, most versatile, and hardest hitting balls I have thrown in a long time.  This ball just crushes the pins and has an aggressive shape off the back of the pattern.  I have used it on Sport shots and more forgiving patterns and whenever I need a little more bite on the back end but want control through the fronts and midlane this is what i grab.

Mine is drilled pin over ring finger and it demonstrates characteristics of both a pearl and a solid, which is what a hybrid should do.  Plus with the design of the proven Prism line, and Dynamicore, it's just an awesome piece that any serious or league bowler should own.  I don't often start sessions with this ball, but I sure finish a lot of them with it.

I drilled 2 Prism Warp Hybrids - a pin up 40x4.75x40 (sanded to 3k) and a pin down 45x4.5x70 left at box finish.  The pin down has been a good option on fresh medium volume patterns when I have wanted to stay straighter/tighter but it has gotten a bit lost in the shuffle with so many other balls in my bag.  Its not a bad ball, but with the Knockout in my arsenal, something had to be left out.  Here is a quick video comparing the pin down Warp Hybrid to the Solid along with the Blood Red Jab: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06UUKdyYYB4&t=296s

The pin up Warp Hybrid has been a winner for me and if we were allowed tournaments in Canada would be in my tournaments arsenal.  I have taken the surface down to 3k so that it would be an easier transition from my Zenith Solid.  The pin up Warp Hybrid gives me a medium to early read with a very strong move on the back end that lets me get left with my feet and lots of recovery for when I want to swing the ball.  It is an option on fresh oil but I need to be firm with my speed and really keep my hand behind it when the back ends are clean.  This ball hooks more on the back end than any other ball in my current arsenal.  The Zenith Pearl fits below my pin up Warp Hybrid as a parallel move to the right.  The Zenith Pearl slides longer down the lane and doesn't corner as hard and is preferred when I want to ball down from the Solid but want to keep my angles straighter.

Check out my review of the Zenith Pearl vs Prism Warp Hybrid vs Zenith Solid:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mulmbUASj5g

I recommend the Prism Warp Hybrid to strokers and tweeners looking to see some movement on the back end.  The cover takes well to a light sanding and will be a great addition to your bag for medium to heavy oil.
