Thinking of switching companies, need ideas on a new arsenal
« on: October 06, 2015, 06:28:51 PM »
Hey guys, I'm currently using some storm and roto grip equipment and have been interested in brunswick for a while. Wondering what you guys think would be a good league arsenal and maybe some tournaments as well? Currently I have a storm rocket, iq tour solid, ride, and a roto grip hysteria. What do you guys think would be good for brunswick? I don't have my exact parameters, but my rev rate is higher than average, my ball speed is 16.5, right handed. Thanks in advance!

For house shots the Einstein with the shine knocked off will open up the lane well, and I wholeheartedly agree on the Melee Jab! What a great everyday ball!

Here would be a good league arsenal in order of strength:

Brunswick - Mastermind Einstein, Brute Strength, Melee Jab
DV8 - Thug Corrupt, Vandal, Hooligan Taunt

I guess switching to Made In Mexico bowling balls (Brunswick/DV8) rather than Made In USA bowling balls (essentially everybody else) appeals to you.
Balls: Motiv Forza GT, Motiv Primal Rage Remix, Motiv Ascent Pearl and Motiv (On The Ball) spare ball.. All made in the USA.

Didn't know they were made in Mexico lol. But honestly performance is performance to me. If it works it works. But I haven't ever tried a brunswick ball so idk if they work for me

Got to love when staffers from other companies that like to promote by trying to bash. Keep up the great work, keep fighting the good cause.

Can't be too bad if they are using the inferno core to sell product.

This summer I strayed away from Brunswick.Tried Motiv it was ok nothing special.Tried a 900 global it cracked then a Storm which has started cracking around the fingers holes.The 900 global was out of warranty was a closeout ball.Tried to see if the Storm was covered under warranty they said hairline cracks are normal.Well guess what I'm back with Brunswick have never had a ball crack.I have a gold rhino pro which is money on the normal dryer ths.Also a Exile which is fantastic and you can get them at Buddies priced right.Got the Guru Mighty at a great deal there too.Glad I came back to my senses. Brunswick,Radical or Dv8 I don't think you can go wrong.Right now all three brands are making great stuff.I am not a staffer and have thrown all the other companies.I am not bashing any other companies,Just think you won't go  wrong trying the Big B brands.

Says the guy who only buys MADE IN USA stuff right??? LOL! You have to be stupid if you really think you only buy american products. I bet your car, tennis, pants, tv, etc, etc are less american than a burrito.

So tired of reading about this Made in Mexico stuff regarding Brunswick. What is wrong with that? If you don't like it, don't buy it, shut up and move on!

I think Brandon certainly has some good ideas for an arsenal.  In the Brunswick line I like the Mastermind Einstein, The Melee Jab and a Brute.  In the Dv8 Line the Thug Corrupt, the Vandal and the Hooligan Taunt. You can't really go wrong with any of these balls as they are all very good.

The Einstein has been a very consistent go to ball for me. Its a hp ball but not a hook moster. Makes it more user friendly/more useable.

I have never had a Brunswick ball crack. Three and one half years ago before all of my health problems began with both cancer and back problems, I had an all Brunswick arsenal and loved it. However when I was able to return to bowling some what and off and on, I was forced to drop to 12# balls by Dr's orders because of my back. In having to buy new 12# balls, I found that Brunswick didn't put the same performance cores in their 12# & 13# balls that they put in their 14-15-16 lb balls, so I was forced to look around and found that Motiv did put their same performance cores in their 12-13 lb balls, so I was forced to switch to Motiv because of the core thing. If not for that, I would still be throwing Brunswick.

BALL "A"
WEIGHTS - 16 / 15 / 14 / 13 / 12
RG RATING - 2.54 / 2.55 / 2.56 / 2.60 / 2.67
RG DIFFERENTIAL - .049 / .050 / .054 / .055 / .040

BALL "B"
WEIGHTS - 16 / 15 / 14 / 13 / 12
RG RATING - 2.466 / 2.477 / 2.494 / 2.569 / 2.612
RG DIFFERENTIAL - 0.054 / 0.054 / 0.054 / 0.043 / 0.043

If you're going strictly off core performance for lighter weight balls, here are 2 examples of Ball "A" vs Ball "B". Any observations?

So does only core numbers matter and the shape of the core has zero effect on how the ball rolls?

If you were to take two undrilled balls with identical covers and core numbers, it wouldn't matter the shape.

Coverstock is king, always will be.

Also, after drilled numbers are more important than what's advertised. With the patented Radical Finger Scoop core, you can really change the shape of a reaction just by a different layout.
