And the RG min and RG max is how the differential is calculated. As one can see on the Brunswick site, .053 is the diff (diff = track flare)

Take RG Max (2.610) and subtract the RG Mix (2.557) and you have the diff of the ball...and yes, this is how diff is calculated for every ball from every company.

Note: this is not intermediate diff found on asymmetrical balls.

Good point. I didn't think about mentioning the differential part

Looks like the Quantum Forest Green has the same coverstock as the Danger Zone. Brunswick also created a new Pro Performance category for these balls on their site.

And the Fire Pearl has the same coverstock as the Danger Zone 2016 SE.

Good catch. I didn't even think about the SE since it's not up on their site, which is kind of strange in itself.

Danger Zone SE was a reward for pro shops for purchasing certain specials at Bowl Expo and other trade shows. It's a limited production, we only built enough to fulfill those orders, so it won't be a catalog ball.

I've only seen it on Buddies' web site so far.

Makes sense, thanks for the info.

I have my Scarlet Quantum I still love to throw. Things hits hard, sounds hard as it hits.

I may just have to spring for the Forest Green.

I thought the Scarlet was the only true urethane shelled Quantum ever made? Anyway I wonder why the price tag on these new balls are higher than the high performance Nirvana's by $15 on buddies anyway. I guess the good news is they aren't as expensive as they were in the 90's like the Helix being I think $300.

OK, now don't get me wrong, cause I ain't trying to start nothing, I'm just saying there is something I don't understand.

 For years now, bowlers have been told, EVEN WHEN WE INSISTED DIFFERENTLY, that balls with filler type cores were "better" performing and more dynamic than balls with thick shells and no filler in them.

 Now Brunswick is coming out with these two balls, and the video they made is highly touting the fact that thicker shells help increase the C.O.R. rating of the ball, and in fact, help increase pin action?

 For those who don't already know, C.O.R. is for coefficient of restitution. What it means is that it is a measurement of energy transference from the hitting object to the hit object, which basically means that "it hits the pins harder" if the C.O.R. rating is higher.

 SO, which is right? And does it even matter?

 Me personally, I think thick shelled, non filler balls are great. I have since I bought my first Faball so many years ago............🤗

Juggs....I have to 1000000% agree with your thoughts on thick shelled stuff. One of the reasons I gravitate back to Visionary all the time. Still use original Ogres, Green/Blue Centaurs, AMB Centaurs, etc that are nothing but cover and core, no fillers. Less cracking as well.

My thoughts are stuff with filler crack more because the cover is not as thick and is more at risk for cracking. What would crack quicker at your house, a 4 inch thick cement drive or a 10 inch thick cement drive....I think we know the answer.

Something I always thought as well is that balls with filler between the cover and core also cause ball death more quickly as well. As we know, the pores on the ball allow for oil to be absorbed through the cover and thus why we need oil extraction. If the filler between the cover and core stops any oil from going further in the ball, the less room a ball has to absorb oil, and would become oil logged quicker. I have no scientific proof, but I would love someone to run a real study under controlled conditions....not as a bash to any company, just to find out the real life scenarios and the truth.

The COR limit is .750, the rest is marketing.  The advantage of filler is getting the RG lower.  The advantage of no filler balls is labor cost, one less step in the process.

Doesn't it cost more to do a no filler all cover ball?
