Bottom Line:

Significant Game Improvement

I'm a 166 average in my league and have a Hammer Widow Legend that I have used predominantly over the past 6 months. Good ball... That being said, the Kingpin is much better for me. I have bowled 6 league games with it and have averaged 200 with my lowest game being a 178. Hopefully a larger sample size will yield the same results. The biggest difference with this versus my Widow (and Track Paradox) is I can throw in harder and still hit the pocket. Pin carry/scatter is much better with higher velocity. It feels much more natural to me so I'm not constantly slowing down or speeding up, but instead use position on the approach and lane to adjust. Fantastic ball for this amateur!

COMMENTS

Likes: Overall strength in the oil, Big Hook

Dislikes: none

The Kingpin is flat out strong period. This ball is flat out impossible to get past the breakpoint. On our longer slicker house shot I am able to start at fourth arrow with this ball. It is very stout and would work great for those players that are speed dominant or have trouble getting the ball to slow down at the breakpoint. This ball will be the first ball out of the bag on longer higher volume patterns. If you need a ball that will slow down and make the corner on the slickest conditions, the Kingpin is your ball!

Bottom Line:

Hook Monster

This ball is a hook monster. Strongest ball I've thrown in a while. The kingpin gets down the lane and retains enough energy to make the turn. Great ball for heavier oil house shots or sport conditions.

Bottom Line:

First Brunswick purchase

Purchased this ball as my first Brunswick ball that wasnt a plastic ball. Did quite a bit of research of various balls and brands. Purchased this around thanksgiving and started was able to start using it a few weeks later. I was impressed with the videos of it in action. Wrote rave reviews on it before somewhere, as i was very pleased with the hitting power along with the follow thru and carry instead of ball deflection upon entry into the pocket. I have about 9 or 10 weeks with this now and i am losing confidence in it. Right out of the box it carried practically everything. Last week i left 16 or so single pins. I was hitting the pocket pretty consistently, duplicating my shots. Not sure why its not carrying with not very many games on it so far. I havent given up on the ball but im slightly concerned if this will be the norm.
