One of the Best Balls on Tour

Probably the most popular ball in Brunswick's arsenal right now, the Hero is a great addition to the all-purpose line. With its pearlized cover and DOT technology, this ball is like the Fearless on steroids. But what makes this ball stand out, and why it has been so popular on the tours, is its ability to control the mid-lane and recover on the backend. This ball has great continuation through the pins. You can square up to your target or open up your angles in the front and this ball will recover and drive through the pins. Everyone needs a Hero.

Question:

Drilling and inserts available

8/19/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

We do offer custom drilling for this ball which is $39.95 and if you wanted to add inserts this option would come up on the drilling page with an option to add finger inserts for $4.98 for the pair and $9.99 for the thumb slug. Those are optional so you did not have to get this extra if you did not need these options.

Question:

When drilling is purchased. Do I receive a ticket or receipt to give to a pro shop so they can drill the ball?

11/9/2019 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

If you purchase drilling on this ball through our website then we would be the ones that drill the ball. You would have to provide us with the measurements for your drilling in order for us to do the drilling. If you do not select the $39.95 drilling then the ball would come without holes and you may pay your local proshop to measure and drill the ball to fit your hand.

Question:

How this ball compare to the chaos 300 black

1/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

They are going to be very similar in reaction on the lane because both are designed to go later on the lanes and have a sharp backend hook. However, the Brunswick Hero is showing to work best in medium oil and the Chaos is rated for medium to heavy so the Chaos may be just a little bit stronger hook potential.

Question:

Does the 13lb. version use the same core as the 15lb with dynamicore?

1/11/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The weight block is changed in the 12 and 13lb weights. The Contra weight block is only in the 14-16lbs.
