Magnitude - Really Like This Ball :-)
This ball is one of the smoothest arcing balls I have seen in the Brunswick line. The Magnitude 035 uses the Relativity Flip Solid coverstock with the new Magnitude Low Diff symmetrical core. This ball fills a definite spot
Here's what I saw. This ball is super clean through the front and the midlane and makes a nice arc on the backend. I have had chance to throw this ball on a house shot as well as Kegel's Beaten Path. I never felt like this ball was going to over-react. It was very controlled and I think that is something everyone needs in their arsenal. This ball is going to become my new benchmark ball.
What I like about the video is how you can see the "control" and the smooth arc in its motion. I'm not someone who likes sharp angles downlane so this ball is a really nice addition to my arsenal.
The Magnitude 035 is available August 15, 2017.

Great benchmark ball
The magnitude is one of Brunswicks newest lines. I would say that this is a great benchmark ball to figure out what the lane is telling you. This is by far the smoothest reacting ball that Brunswick has to date. People are comparing this to an iq tour or a v2 solid of old. I drilled this ball with one of my stable control drilling with the pin under my bridge with out an extra hole. Very controllable smooth reaction for medium to longer patterns. Very versitale as you can close your angles or open them up depending on what the lane is telling you. Would recommend this ball for fresh conditions and also for tougher patterns.

Could not get ball to finish. Called company for suggestions.TOld to resurface ball and then restore surface to 2000. Ball now works fine and finishes strong.

He is a new serie in the Brunswick brand, the Magnitude serie. The first one is the Magnitude 035. The number comes from the differential of the core which is 0.035. The core is wrapped up with the Relativity Flip Solid coverstock. This ball is designed for medium to oily lane condition. Because of the low differential of the ball, this ball is designed for tournament players and rev dominant player.
Because I wanted to have a really smooth and controllable ball to play on harder or shorter patern, I drilled this ball really strong. I've put a 50x 3 3/8"x40 layout. The ball rolls exactly like I anticipated. The ball starts to roll really soon and make a really predictable an controllable turn to the pocket. Compared to the DV8 Pitbull Growl, I play the 035 three boards right with my feet and two with my eyes. Compared to the Inferno Blue Flame, I play the ball in the same area but the difference is in the shape. The 035 rolls sooner and is more controllable on the back end. Compared to the Inferno, I play the 035 two boards right with my feet and one board right with my eyes.
For people with more speed or wanting to play on heavier patern, the ball can be sanded to 1000 or even 500 grit and the ball will still rolls strong and it the pocket. For people with less speed or wanting to play on lighter patern, the ball can be polished to avoid it to roll too soon in the heads and burning up.
To conclude, if you are a rev dominant or a tournament bowler, the 035 is for you.

The Magnitude 035 is the ball I have been waiting on for quite some time. It has a lower differential weight block that allows it to clear the heads and retain energy combined with a cover that will read the pattern well. This ball makes the average house shot look quite easy. It allows me to move right and take advantage of the hold provided by the volume in the middle of the pattern. I can finally play the lanes the way the guys with all the speed and the tilt do without having to pile on the ball speed. This ball creates extra room all over the lane. If you have enough friction and you have a semi consistent release it is quite hard to miss the pocket with this ball. I also noticed extra room right with the Magnitude 035. In situations where other balls would just burn up and stop this ball would keep coming. I felt like I had gone back in time 15 years as far as lane transition was concerned. The Magnitude 035 allowed me to make minimal adjustments while making both lanes on the pair seem almost identical. I almost never see the lane this way in the current environment. The forgiving qualities of this ball are going to come into play very often. It should get quite a bit of use on the tougher patterns for this very reason. The Magnitude 035 should be a great choice for tournament player and league bowlers a like.

Brunswick Magnitude 035 Review
I drilled the Magnitude 035 to be my "go to" ball for lane conditions that are less than ideal, especially sport or challenge patterns where your miss room is negated to a degree, and you need a ball that will help give you extra boards to play with. The Magnitude 035 does just that. With the pin down layout, I am able to control the back end exceptionally well, as the ball picks up the middle part of the lane and rolls very smooth and continuous through the pins. On a THS, it is not the first ball out of my bag, rather when the lanes break down it is there to help with transition when other balls become over/under and sensitive to the the wet/dry conditions. On sport shots, this ball shines. I have used it on WTBA Paris, WTBA Athens, and the 2011 USBC Masters pattern, all with tremendous results when compared to other balls on the same pattern. I find that the Magnitude gives me 1-1.5 extra boards of miss room inside AND outside of my target, which certainly comes into play anytime you bowl on challenging lane conditions. If you are a tournament bowler, you HAVE to have this ball in your bag at all times. You are literally throwing pins away if you don't. Plus, even if you're a one day a week bowler, you can use the Magnitude 035 to blend out league conditions which can vary week in and week out.

Ball of the Summer
Wow where do I start with this ball, Brunswick summer line is right on the money this year. My layout for the Magnitude 035 is 60x4x70 with the pin right under the ring finger. This ball is the most predictable ball I drill yet, clean through the fronts and smooth in the back, what more could you ask for. It will be a great benchmark ball for all styles of bowlers. I extremely recommend this ball for anyone who is looking to strike a lot. Believe me you will be thanking me once you purchase this ball. It will be available 8/15/17 !!!
