Hook and control!

Stats: PAP 4 over ¾ up, 15 mph, 18 tilt, 275 revs. I drilled mine 45x4.25x30. I found this ball to be very smooth, but it still offers plenty of hook. If your original Knock Out is not enough, this ball will provide some additional hook without sacrificing control.

Strong Symmetrical Performance

The Knock Out Black/Blue is the big brother to the original Knock Out. This one starts up a few feet sooner and handles a bit more oil. I tend to use this ball on our house shot when other balls are going too long and I need to blend the over/under out on the lane. The Knock Out Black/Blue is amongst the stronger symmetrical balls on the market and will work well for a variety of styles as long as some oil is present. This Knock Out is predictable symmetrical power.

Strong Symmetrical with some kick!

Check out the video and the breakdown. This ball is good for every bowler type, provided the right layout and surface. Out of box it looks pretty good!

Knock out B&B

I was excited to drill this one and it has not disappointed yet. This black & blue has a little more pip to it than the original Knock out. I especially like this piece because it works great on something fresh when there is medium to heavy oil. Perfect for fresh house patterns during league! And especially great for sport patterns with medium to heavier oil in tournaments.

A Stronger Punch with the Knock Out Black and Blue

As a fan of the original Brunswick Knock Out, I was excited to drill up a Knock Out Black and Blue. That ball was one of my favorites and quickly became a benchmark ball for me.

Featuring the Melee Core, another one of my favorites, the Knock Out Black and Blue has a 500, 2000 Siaair finish and has more bit than the original Knock Out.

This ball definitely has more bite to it and needs oil. That makes it great for playing in the middle part of the lane on a typical house pattern, and also works well on some of the heavier volume sport patterns.

When the lanes burn up, this ball will not be in your hand, but is a great ball on the fresh and when you need something to roll through the front part of the lanes when there is a lot of oil. For me, that makes this ball something that will always be in my bag.

Must have in bag!

I love my knockout black/blue right out of the box. It works best on fresh when there's some head oil and fresh backends. Ball will give you lots of mid-lane and continuation on the fresh. Must have ball right out of bag, highly recommended!!

The Latest Knockout

The all new Knockout Black & Blue is wrapped in a stronger cover stock than the original Knockout. This new cover (Savvy Hook 3.5) definitely creates more of a footprint to the lane. It is easily 3-4 boards stronger with earlier hook, but maintains that extremely round and continuous motion that we loved out of the original knockout. I really love how this ball has more of a sweeping motion down lane, it is extremely friendly to my eye. Gets yours on 1/28/2022!!

Great ball

If you're looking for a ball that is a step down from your high end ball, this is definitely a great choice. It's smooth and has a nice continuous rounded shape. The Knockout black and blue is a great compliment to the Midnight Jab. Comparing it to the Jab, I would say its a good 3 feet earlier with a more rounded shape to it. When you notice the Knockout not finishing well, you can jump right to the Midnight Jab

What a PUNCH

I drilled my Knock Out black/blue 60x4x30. I have had a melee core bowling ball in my bag for the last 2 years. I had hi hopes for this ball and it sure did not disappoint. The new particles in the cover give it a much needed boost (in my opinion). It still gets thru the heads with ease, picks up the mids better than ever and has a great finish in the back. This ball for my lower ball speeds is just what was needed! Welcome to the tournament bag Knock Out black/blue

Knock Out Black Blue

The Knock Out Black Blue is Brunswick's soon to be released ( 1-28-2022 ) ball that features the Melee core and the Savvy Hook 3.5 Solid coverstock. This coverstock is a little beefier than the original Knock Out and includes sparkles for a little more bite.
The Knock Out Black Blue gives me a motion that is very controllable. It gets down the lane and reads off the pattern. Keeping the game simple.
A good ball to start with, to see what the lane is giving you and go from there. Did someone just say benchmark??

Brunswick Knock Out Black & Blue

Brunswick has come out with an updated version of last years very successful Knock Out with the Knock Out Black & Blue. This will again be using the Melee core that has done so well in the Uppercut, Melee series, and now KO series of balls. The cover-stock is solid, same as last years model but has been beefed up to be a little stronger overall. I threw them side by side and for me the Black & Blue picks up a little earlier and is a little smoother. I would say the Black & Blue is about 3-4 boards stronger with my feet than the original. Overall I would say this is a good benchmark type ball that that would find a place in everyone's arsenal.
