Following the success of the Hero Pearl, Brunswick is introducing the Hero Solid. The solid version of this ball is better paired with more oil than the pearl. The versatility of this ball makes it a good benchmark bowling ball for a wide range of bowlers. The Brunswick Hero utilizes Brunswicks Durability Optimization Technology (DOT). This technology by Brunswick was developed to reduce the chance of cracking by enhancing the ball's durability. The Activator Plus 2.0 Solid coverstock and Contra core pair up to give this ball an all-purpose ball reaction that is great for all types of players.
The Brunswick Hero Solid out of box read the lane a little early for my style of bowling. For bowlers with a low rev rate or high speed or low tilt this ball will be just fine the way it is out of box. I was able to dial it in for me by shining up the surface to add a little length and save a little more energy for down lane. Now I really like the way this ball shapes. It has a strong controlled motion that hits hard. All bowlers are different and sometimes a little surface tweaking can make all the difference. :-)
I want to replace this my hammer Web with this ball is that a good idea11/9/2020 - By Joseph Diaz
Yes, this would be pretty close to the Hammer Web. They both are upper mid performance balls and have the same 2000 grit finish out of the box to help the ball read the mid lane and have a smooth arcing hook down the lane. The Web had a hybrid cover which did give a little more length than the solid cover on the Hero Solid but they would still have a similar overall hook and work well in medium oil conditions.11/13/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
