Title: total inferno
Post by: Long Roller on October 10, 2006, 02:03:56 PM
Octane™ Gription Coverstock™.
The Total Inferno is the second ball to take full advantage of Brunswick’s new Urethane casting machine. By fusing a new additive with new processing technology, Brunswick has created a version of Octane coverstock with more back-end grip.  

Reaction Characteristics - Absolute Inferno® on steroids
With increased grip in light oil and in the dry, Octane Gription coverstock gives the Total Inferno a length similar to other rough buffed Brunswick balls but with more response late in the mid-lane, on the back-ends and on the thickest of carrydown.  Improved grip has another advantage. The Total Inferno responds less to oil moving down the lane, minimizing reactions changes due to carrydown.  The increase in down lane hooking action delivers a ball with both high hook potential and high angularity on today’s lane conditions.

The Total Inferno uses the lowest RG core Brunswick has ever put in a bowling ball.  A fast revving, super-ultra-low-RG-core helps the Total Inferno deliver great mid-lane recovery.  Then, Octane Gription coverstock takes over and produces a stronger version of the move made famous by the Absolute Inferno;  angular but controllable, strong but continuous.  This strong down lane move delivers the highest hook potential Brunswick has achieved in a pearlized ball.  

The specifications for the Brunswick Total Inferno are: Core: Super Ultra Low RG: Coverstock: Octane Gription: Color: Orange/Purple/Red Pearl: Hardness: 76-77: RG: Rating (actual) 2.451: (differential): 0.050: Weights: 12-16: Hook Potential: 155: Length: 90: Breakpoint Shape: 85:

This ball does not sound like either one of them. It will probably be earlier and intended for more oil, more like the Action Max. It should complement them rather than replace them.

Guys, that is a Teal/Orange Power Groove on the casting machine next to the Radical. We just made the sample color of the Total Inferno in the past month, so it would not have made it on any of those videos.

This will most likely be the replacement for the Absolute, but with a hook potential of 155! I don't see how it will fit in the spot.

Unless of course the Radical is the replacement for the Absolute...

The specs on this ball sound great.  I personally don't really like the appearance of the ball that much.  It looks like the Action Packed to me with a messed up Ultimate logo, but with those specs, I'll put the looks of the ball aside.

They have added a new ingredient to the Octane to increase grip in the back end. Technically it isn't a particle.

I just read the drilling sheet - and I wondered about the surface of the TI: A length of "only" 90 with a Rough Buff finish, and NO recommendation to polish the ball? Hell, what is this thing going to be? Does it ooze superglue? Will there be any lane oiled long enough to use this ball at all? And what might happen when you sand or polish it?

I doubt that there will be any problems with polishing the ball.  If there were potential problems Brunswick would be obligated to adress them or else there would be many complaints.  I personally don't even bother reading the "hooks too much so polish or hooks too little so sand" blurb.  As far as the cover, I doubt that it will be too agressive to ever use.  I can cut my scorchin' loose on med so if this one is longer and less overall, it should be ok.
