The Brunswick Zenith Hybrid is the perfect blend of the Zenith Pearl and Zenith Solid in one high-performance bowling ball. This ball was not designed to be the strongest ball for oil or have a skid/flip reaction but is perfect for right in the middle. The combination of the Zenith core and the A.X.H Hybrid Reactive coverstock creates more of a mid-lane reaction with a big hook.

COMMENTS


The Zenith Hybrid fits perfectly between the Zenith Pearl and Solid.  This one is right at home on some of the fresher medium to heavy conditions where the Zenith Pearl is a bit too long.  The Zenith Hybrid is a little longer than the solid but seems to cover almost as many boards.  I tested this one on the Scorpion Pattern and on our house shot.  It absolutely crushed the Scorpion.  It recovered nicely when I missed right of target.  If your looking for an angular ball that handles some oil the Zenith Hybrid is your ball.

COMMENTS

Likes: The Zenith Hybrid for me is extremely smooth and not likely to get me in much trouble. It reads the mid lane pretty well and has a smooth rounded arc. For me it is not going to flip and leave something ugly. Love the grey & black colors.

Dislikes: Because it is smooth and not super-strong down lane carry can be an issue.

COMMENTS

Have I mentioned that I love Hybrids?  The Zenith Hybrid is an early rolling control ball for me. If I need to keep the reaction in front of me, and I have some oil up front, this is my go to ball. I seem to get into trouble if I try to send a ball right in heavy oil, so I try to use equipment that is rolly and stay behind the ball more. Unfortunately, my tendency is to twirl a ball when I play straighter. The Zenith Hybrid turns my twirl into roll, and saves the pocket for me. That heavy roll makes my look better and helps me maintain control of the pocket.
