Looking for a replacement for the Braniac
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:59:12 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I am looking for the closest replacement to the Braniac-looking for suggestions in the Brunswick family.  The Braniac is the best ball from Brunswick (and maybe from anyone) that I've ever rolled.

I am a stroker, revs/speed matched, looking for something to go above the White Hot Badger to start the night.

Thanks for the help in advance!

I think the Conspiracy Pearl is the closest.

PB3 threw the Braniac a lot. Last year he was throwing the Conspiracy Pearl a lot after it came out
Harley's Simi Bowl (Simi Valley, CA)
Sunset West (St George, UT)

In addition to the Conspiracy Pearl, which will have a higher differential (.056) and likely be a tad stronger late, I'd suggest the Prism Hybrid.  This ball clears the heads easily, and the differential (.051) is closer to the Brainiac's (.048) so could also be a great option for you.

On the symmetrical side of things the Hero is a clear winner in my opinion.  Best of luck with you.  Please let us know how it goes for you.

Thanks for both of the replies.  Since I've only bought one ball the past 3 years, I'm contemplating buying 2 pieces.  I have been looking at both the Prism Hybrid, and Conspiracy Pearl.  I also see the Conspiracy Theory is out.  I'm trying to get a handle on how I can get best get 2 different shot shapes out of these.  I've never matched up too well with solids, and I like having Asymmetric pieces at the top of my bag.
