C-(system) 2.5
« on: August 06, 2009, 02:42:25 AM »
Was looking at the balls on the pba and seen a new release from brunswick called the c-(system) 2.5 and was wondering if any of you brunswick people know anything bout this ball. Says it's a new cover and weight block friend of mine throws only brunswick and is looking for a new long and strong ball and thats what it says this ball is.

I'm not disagreeing it was a good ball but I liked the Combat Zone and Speed Zone just as much. But I am going off another man's words with that the quote.

The release date is 9/28/88 and it is currently available for preorder on http://www.bowlingball.com for $144.99. They have a pic of the ball and the core with a nice description. I have heard rave reviews as far as a pro out of Indiana saying it was the best Brunswick ball since the Original Danger Zone. Thats all I know for now. Hope to see it this weekend

Well, it is a good looking ball.  


I'm guessing this was a joke..

I drilled one up yesterday for one our Brunswick-distributor reps..
IMO not the prettiest ball from Brunswick.. Looks like a dull Blue/Red Power Groove..
I could see a lot more shelf appeal if they tried something else than blue..
Have not had the chance to get a review from the rep.. But from what i've heard elsewhere it sounds very interesting..

Not too impressed with the drillsheet though.. I like the fact that they use the Dual Angle Technique.. Not so excited about the X-hole recommendation..

No Joking here.
I have not been lucky enough to see one in person, but the pics I have seen make it appear to be a nice looking ball.

The picture previously linked to in this thread is spot on from what I've seen.

Are you kidding me, what a joke. Brunswick is reeling. The Seige was a huge flop, one of the worst rolling balls i have ever seen and had a ton of hype/marketing to make it almost an epic fail( EPX T1 type failure no but still bad) They are of course going to say its the best ball since whatever ball they had sold a ton. They are just pumping out balls hoping to hit a winner and in reality they are just sinking their ship even further. I wouldnt throw a Bwick ball if it was the last ball produced, i would quit bowling before I threw one.

Look at all of their last High performance releases, all flops and all could be found for dirt cheap 6 months after released. Do not see why this one will be any different. Someone tell me why i am wrong


You're wrong because you're angry.

Will do.

If you have thrown the Smash Zone, Wild Ride, etc. etc. (I have yet to throw anything after the Ride since i'm out on injury), you would see Brunswick is making great pieces. Before I was injured, my Wild Ride/Smash Zone combo would be all I needed on a typical house pattern. The Wild Ride for playing a bit deeper, and the Smash Zone for kicking the ten when the Ride wouldn't. I still have an undrilled Siege/Rattler so I can't give an honest assessment on them, but I know they're going to be great.

There's no doubt the Cell's, Widow's and Gravity series aren't selling lights out. I cannot and will not argue that fact. The Smash Zone was only dumped because the color was only "black pearl". People these days want a ball the color of the rainbow and manufacturers know that's how to sell balls. Anyone who's thrown a Smash Zone should know, it's just as good, if not better than Hammer's Psycho. I compared it head to head and my Smash hit harder and drove harder, while being just slightly longer and more angular.

Anyways, that's not the point. Brunswick makes just as good of stuff as other companies and there's no need to argue about anything.

I just cannot wait for this C System! Well, I need to be able to bowl again first but I still can't wait!

price doesn't reflect quality. Supply and demand do, along with distribution.

Bowlingball.com has a lot of bowlingballs for sale cheap by a lot of companies at some point or another. Including roto grip and storm. When Brunswick discontinues a ball they clear them out cheap. They go through a lot of different lines quickly. From what I've noticed if it isn't just selling unbelievable numbers they have a replacement on the way and discontinue the other.

I've bought a lot of their equipment cheap and have great results with it. Including infernos and zones. Considering I've drilled a lot of their equipment I can say very safely its a great product. When I can get a great deal on a ball from any company I check the reviews online and then make my decision.

you can't  add a physics term to a bowling term and expect it to mean something.

Nope not wrong and heres why

1)Balls that are good sell

typical sales here. you either have a great product and sell for a good price or you have a poor product and sell it for whatever you can get, how can you argue this!!!




The term "Good" is relative to the person rolling the ball.

For whatever reason flickr tosses in an @ sign and most browsers cut off the url after that point.  Photobucket doesn't have that issue...
