Brunswick is bringing back some Attitude! The Brunswick Attitude has a polished-pearl Activator Plus 3.0 Pearl coverstock that allows the ball to go long and react with an angular entry on the backend. This upper-mid performance bowling ball uses the versatile symmetric Contra core. This pretty bowling ball is sure to produce results along with a little Attitude!

The Attitude has a very similar core and cover combination to the very successful Hero. I find this ball to be a little longer and a bit more angular when comparing the two balls. The Attitude is one of the best pearl benchmark balls on the market. This one is frequently one of the first balls out of my bag currently in league. I have it right between my 3D Offset and Melee Jab Carbon. If it is not enough ball I switch to the Offset, if it is too much ball and I need more length I throw the Carbon. This is ball is a fantastic value and is playable from all parts of the lane. I also see this one working for most bowler styles. This is truly one of the can't miss balls on the shelf for both its color combo and its reaction.
This ball has improved my league average by 35.
It’s a forgiving ball that will hook nicely to the pocket when even 5 boards right of the sweet spot.
This coverstock is very strong and with this core has a beautiful curve when exiting the oil onto dry boards. Even after a few games when the oils been pushed down the lane this ball grips to the pocket hard and the follow through the pins rarely leaves you a 10 pin. With this ball my spare balls gonna get dust, it’s just such an amazing hitter a go to for anyone in their arsenal whether new to the game or experienced. Shout out to Peter Somaff for the ball recommendation. Also I’m a 2 handed player with a lot of revs and about 15-16 mph at pins.
I threw my Brunswick Attitude next to my Ebonite GB4 Pearl as they have very close RG & Differential numbers. I drilled the Attitude at 60 x 3-1/2 x 20 as that has become my favorite drilling pattern. I found the Attitude to pick up just a hair earlier and flips harder down lane giving it a larger overall footprint of about 2-3 boards. I never owned a Hero Pearl but I've been told several times it rolls like the Hero. I do like this ball a lot. It just wants to carry.
Here are my thoughts on the new Brunswick Attitude. The Attitude features a new Contra symmetric core- low RG/medium diff wrapped by aqua/silver/black Activator Plus 3.0 Pearl cover. Box finish is Factory Compound. The layout I used on mine is 75 x 4 ½ x 45 and I have thrown it at box surface and 4000 Siaair. I have thrown it on various THS as well a 47’ 25ml challenge pattern.
The intent of the Attitude is to be a quick response/flip type of motion. From what I have seen across the patterns on which I have thrown the Attitude, it does have a more angular type of motion. If I were to compare it to another Brunswick release, it would appear to be a slightly smoother version of a Melee Jab Midnight Blue. That being said, the Attitude seems to be a versatile piece and responds well to different hand positions and angles. The Attitude should excel on medium volume patterns on a variety of pattern distances and could easily be a benchmark ball given its apparent versatility. Many styles should find success with this release as well.
The Attitude is readily available. See your pro shop for more information on the new Brunswick Attitude.
