Brunswick Kingpin Max

The Brunswick Kingpin Max bowling ball is taking everything to the max! This bowling ball offers maximum hook, continuation, as well as overall performance. We didn't know it was possible but this ball offers more hook and continuation than its predecessor. The Kingpin Max was designed to react earlier in the mid-lane in order to provide more overall hook and the increased continuation through the pins. This ball introduces the ECA-X coverstock which offers max traction. This ball also features Brunswick's DynamiCore which is exclusive to Brunswick. This outer core technology boast to be more durable and has increased hitting power that translates into pin carry. This outer core is uniquely blue and surrounds the Kingpin Ultra Low RG core.

Kingpin Max

Ok boys and girls this ball flat out hooks. It needs plenty of oil to let it shine.The kingpin features the ECA-X coverstock, an advancement in composite technology, for more traction compared to original ECA. The Kingpin Max also utilizes Brunswick's innovative DynamiCore technology which has proven to produce 12% more hitting power over balls without this unique outer core blend. What does all that mean.... MORE STRIKES...
If you are looking for a ball for upcoming nationals you should look at this ball. Doubles/singles are usually a longer pattern and this ball would be perfect. I dilled it up identical to the Original King pin, and I have it hooking about 4 boards more. Anyone that has thrown the original Kingpin knows that is ALOT..

COMMENTS
Likes: Overall strength in the oil, Big Hook
Dislikes: none
The Kingpin Max is a very strong ball. It is a little earlier than the original Kingpin with a quicker move at the breakpoint. It is so fast that if it were not early it would appear to be skid flip shape. I chose a weaker layout for this particular ball so that I would be able to use it a bit more on the conditions I see most often. This is a ball that I will use on the fresher conditions and then transition to something with a bit less surface. As stated by others, this ball is great when there is oil present. When the heads fry out there are better choices like the Tenacity or Magnitude 035. This ball is ideal for the speed dominant player because it slows down so quickly. They will likely never put it down. In short, if you are speed dominant or face oilier lane conditions, the Kingpin Max is a fantastic choice.

Hook Monster

This ball shocked me on how much it recovers . No matter how far I moved left the ball made it back to the pocket. It needs a good amount oil and space to really show its potential .
