The Brunswick Zenith Pearl is a great addition to the Zenith line of high=performance bowling balls. This ball offers a lot of the same attributes as the solid when facing medium oiled lanes as well as for bowlers looking for a little later hook. The combination of the Zenith core and the A.X.H Pearl Reactive coverstock creates easy length and angular backend reaction.

COMMENTS

The Brunswick Zenith Pearl is one of the strongest asymmetrical pearls I have ever thrown.  The Zenith Pearl is very clean through the fronts with a midlane roll and smooth flip motion in the backend.  The Zenith Pearl is definitely a ball all tournament players would need to have in the arsenal for multiple lane conditions

I really like the darker colors of this ball because it does not stand out as some of the other pearls out there.  This ball really compliments the Zenith solid well.  When the Zenith starts to hook too early, this ball is much cleaner through the front part of the lane and more angular at the break point.  If I were to use this ball on freshly oiled lanes, I would definitely suggest medium lane conditions because of how clean the ball is through the front part of the lane.

COMMENTS


The Zenith Pearl is the polar opposite of the original Zenith.  This one is much longer, stronger and more angular than the original Zenith. The two Zeniths will cover everything from medium to heavy conditions while giving you a strong move at the breakpoint.   The Zenith Pearl is much better suited for house shot conditions and situations where there is more friction present.  This ball excels at getting down the lane.  This one has been in the bag everywhere I have bowled competitively since I drilled it.  If you like the long and strong type of reaction,  the Zenith pearl is right up your alley.

This is my go-to ball when the lanes have started to break down a little bit. Mine is drilled 70x4.5x35. The ball clears the front part of the lane so cleanly and the energy retention, even when I see it start to get into a hook phase early, still manages to hit extremely well. I have no doubt I will have more than 1 and will continue to bring it with me at all times.
