- Description: The Smash Zone integrates a pearlized version of Brunswick’s exciting EnMotion™coverstock with an updated version of the original Inferno™core and a high gloss polish finish. This combination creates an ultra-low RG symmetric core ball that gets through the front part of the lane then rev’s strongly to create excellent mid-lane recovery and a continuous back-end reaction. The Smash Zone uses a Pearlized version of the EnMotion coverstock. EnMotion combines the best elements from our PowerKoil™, Activator™and N’Control™coverstock systems. The Smash Zone unites EnMotion coverstock with an updated version of the original Inferno core that lowers the RGdiff to reduce problems with over flaring. Ultra-low-RG’s are known for strong mid-lane recovery moves and their controllable and continuous back-end hooking action, Brunswick has created a strong revving counterpart to the Twisted Fury that will match-up better on lane patterns that create excessive length or over/under reaction problems for higher RG balls.

This is a great ball from brunswick.  I have used mine on pba patterns and house shots with success on both.  I am a lefty with high revs and speed.  on the pba shots I can play down 10 and out to 3-4 and the smash come back with athority.  house shots are touchy though I have to move in deep and throw a big hook.  carries well and hits hard.

My smash is drilled pin up with cg in palm.  I can definately see the midlane movement this ball creats.  That's what brunswick is known for.  I heard this ball was a later hooking version of the absolute so I got to try and it's definately a great ball.
you can email me at or

latest 300 shot with arch rival yes!!
columbia is the best!

I picked one of these because i love the inferno core, and wanted to see what a newer cover would do on it. I got a nice benchmark ball that really hits well when lined up. I usually start with this ball to see how the oil is playing, light or heavy, short or longish, and it tells me just fine.

I have it layed out pin down, a little up ad left of my grip center, my pap is 3 3/8 x 1/2 up, so it is pretty close to a 3 1/2 pin to pap, the ball really revs nice in the midlane. cg is swung a little, and p3 hole at 45* is there, on the deeper side.

the only thing i see with the ball is the cover being pearlized and polished, is a little squirty on fresh conditions, but the upside to it is, it allows me to play a tighter line until they transition to my 4.5 or 4.5INT. the ball seems to bat its best in this element too, a little straighter, the carry is tremendous, on well executed shots it blows 10 back, and on slight misses, it usually send messengers everywhere, which is nice feedback to know how well i threw the shot. overall a great ball.
Hangin' Out!
