THE ball for Full Rollers and Low Rev Players!!

I just returned to the sport after many years off. This ball is perfect for full rollers and low rev players, as well as higher rev players on heavier conditions. I use it on all levels of lane conditions.
I have it drilled for max hook - full roller configuration. This ball reacts just as I need it too and is playable on most conditions. My average jumped up almost 40 points by using this ball. Don't be afraid to try it if you are currently not getting the hook that you want. It tracks smoothly through the heads and once it hits the dry, pulls around nicely (and predictably) into the pocket. I was worried it would be too strong but for my style it is simply the bomb!

COMMENTS
Likes: Versatility and backend response for an stronger ball
Dislikes: none
The Kingpin Rule is a bit of an enigma if you will. Usually when you find a ball that hooks soon enough to read on heavier patterns it likes to burn up as the pattern breaks down. The Kingpin Rule continues to come around the corner. This ball is very unusual in that it seems to read the lane correctly most of the time on heavier patterns. I have used it on a longer lighter volume pattern and a longer heavier volume pattern. This ball looked almost equally good on both. The Kingpin Rule has well above average energy retention for a ball in this category. Because of this, it also has gotten some use when our house shot has been a little tight. As far as comparisons go, it reminds me most of the original Mastermind with extra hook. I can see this being the heavier oil ball for most styles. Because of the extra energy retention, it also seems to carry the off hits very well. If you are looking for a great looking heavy oil ball with great potential check out the Kingpin Rule.

Strongest Kingpin Yet

I've been a fan of the Kingpins and this latest edition to the Kingpin line is different and more dynamic than the original Kingpin and Kingpin Max. First, this ball needs oil. Given the performance rating on this ball at 88 and falling in the Pro > Traction line in the Brunswick family, this ball works best on a heavier volume and longer pattern. I found this ball to be more angular than the Kingpin Max as it provides a much sharper turn on the backend than the previous Kingpins. If you bowl where there is heavier volumes of oil and

All hail the king

The king pin rule for myself is a little cleaner than the Max with a lot more pop on the back, this ball really surprised me with the amount of boards it covers but doesn't lose carry. This ball is a must have for any heavy oil pattern that you can just move left and let her rip.

Strongest, Greatest, Powerful Kingpin of ALL Kingpin's

The Brunswick Kingpin Rule is the strongest, hard-hitting, and early-rolling high performance ball to date, IMO of course. I really love the performance of this ball and the drilling that I used on this great performing arsenal (40 x 3.75 x 70) keeps me in play in league and tournaments for a great portion of my competitions. This ball rolls forward making pin carry a breeze and consistent for me. The Kingpin Gold SE makes a great companion for this arsenal and a perfect tag team for league play.

Kingpin Rule

All HAIL the KING... Then new Kingpin Rule is the king of them all. The the quantum coverstock wrapped around the proven kingpin core this king pin giving it a RG of 2.483 and a diff of .055 asy of .020. This ball will give you more leangth of the previous 2 allowing you to move left and open up your angles. The Kingpin Rule is using Dynamicore the industry-leading technology that is a more durable outer material that yields less compression upon impact increasing hitting power and creating an undeniable difference in sound and pin carry.If you are looking for a ball on those heavier oil patterns or a low rev rate this ball will be perfect for you.

Wow

The new Kingpin Rule is GREAT for those heavier or longer patterns. Also a great choice for those with a lower rev rate looking to get that extra backend motion. Out of box this ball is strong. It reads the mid lane great yet still retains energy to carry corner pins. The addition of DynamiCore assists with those "off" hits. If you are looking for a ball to combat the heavier or longer conditions, you cant go wrong with the Kingpin Rule.
