The Hero You Need!
The Brunswick Hero has become the hero bowling ball in my bag! When all else has failed, I pull this ball out and it gets the job done! Layed out as 65x4x65 with 1000-grit surface, this pin-down ball still retains a lot of energy downlane and packs a punch. I am still getting used to where this ball fits in my bag, as this is one of the first Brunswick balls I have purchased, but this ball is great for fresh conditions with some surface, or even game 2-3 with transition! This ball is perfect to get through some oil and once it finds friction, that is when this ball is at its best. If you are in need of a Hero on the lanes, get your Brunswick Hero today!

Another impressive release by Brunswick
Wow! This ball is an awesome release from Brunswick. Mine is drilled 60 x 5 x 35. The ball is extremely clean in the front part of the lane. The ball reacts very well to the friction and angular down lane. I would use this ball for most medium to medium dry conditions especially when you want some angle for carry. The ball hits extremely hard!!! This ball went immediately into my tournament bag. I won't hesitate to use this ball when the lanes get a bit dry and force me into the middle part of the lane. Don't delay, put one into your bag and bowl like a HERO!

I need a Hero!
I was really looking for a ball that would roll a little more than my urethane but still be controllable and not sacrifice pin action for performance. This ball fits the bill nicely. Such an amazing combination with the core and activator plus coverstock that I get a little more length than urethane but still see a down lane move when the lanes are drier. I look forward to seeing this piece in my bag in the future.

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.
