Brunswick Mastermind Strategy

Strategy is a crucial part of any sport and bowling is no different. The Brunswick Mastermind Strategy pairs the Relativity Solid Reactive coverstock with the Modified Mastermind Asymmetric core to offer a ball that has a strong and controllable hook motion when used on medium to heavy oiled lanes. The ball motion of the Mastermind Strategy is similar to the one produced by the original Mastermind.

Bowling Ball- Brunswick Mastermind Strategy
Coverstock- Relativity Solid Reactive
Factory Finish- 500, 2000 Siaair
Ball Layout- 60x4.5x55

The Brunswick Mastermind Strategy is a bowling ball that will probably be the first one to come out of my bag. If you liked the original Mastermind, you are absolutely going to love this ball. I have had the ball for about a week now, and have had a change to throw it both on wood and synthetic lanes. The Mastermind Strategy really leaves a foot print in the oil. Like the original, this ball sees the mid-lane very well, but this this one continues through the pins much harder. It's almost the best of both worlds. The Strategy has that strong mid-lane roll of the original, but it continues through the pins just as hard as the Mastermind Brainiac. I find myself saying wow every time this ball starts up, and goes through the pins. I would say overall it's about the same amount of hook as the original, just with a stronger continuous roll. Compared to the Mastermind Brainiac, the Strategy is probably three to four feet earlier with a stronger mid-lane roll, but continues through the pins just as hard. Make sure you check this ball out. Available July 12th.

Wow

Threw this ball for the first time this week , all I can is say is wow. This reads the mid-lane so well and it completely stands up , ball is very angular . Great complement to the original mastermind . Great step down from the Nirvana or Original Mastermind

A must have

First night of league with this ball I shoot 300/799. If you liked the original mastermind then you will want to put this one in your bag. This ball cleaner through the fronts with great traction in the midlane and a strong smooth continuous backend.

I would buy 100 of this ball if I could.

I love this ball, it has that same Mastermind shape that is very predictable and everyone likes. This ball has more continuation though, it allows the bowler to kill the transition!

Mastermind Strategy

I drilled my Mastermind Strategy with a 45 X 5 x 30 lay out to use on heavy oil patterns. It had a big mid lane reaction but smooth continuos backend.
I could only use this ball for a game and a half before it was just to strong for the house shot. I would suggest if you need something for oil this be the first ball on your list, you will not be disappointed .
Good Luck and keep hitting them hard.

Smart Hook

In my eyes this is the best overall hook and smoothest reaction ball out of all of them in this line! I was a huge fan of how this ball digs and transitions smooth with a continuous motion. It hits the pins with power! I have mine drilled pin under so it picks up a little earlier but with the speed I play it is very forgiving. I just keep moving left and this ball keeps me in play.

Best Mastermind of the line

The Mastermind Strategy to me is the best Mastermind ball in the line. The Mastermind Strategy is so strong and continuatous in the backend and has great midlane roll. I drilled mine 45 x 6 x 80 for tougher flat patterns to allow me to get the ball to roll more throughout the lane. This ball is gonna be a moneymaker and is a outstanding benchmark ball as well.

COMMENTS

Likes: Heavy midlane read, over all strength, ability to smooth out over under conditions

Dislikes: none

The Mastermind Strategy is a stronger upgraded version of the original Mastermind. The newer Composite Coverstock technology helps the ball start a bit sooner and still maintain some motion down the lane. This one is much earlier than the Brainiac and will work very well when the lane conditions are fresh. I believe I will find this ball to excel when I need something to even out the wet dry ball reaction caused by today's slicker surfaces and higher volumes. This ball possesses a controllable reaction simply not seen in most reactive balls. If your looking for strong, controllable performance with plenty of hook the Mastermind Strategy is more than worth your consideration!

Winner for Brunswick

Hand: Left Ball Speed: 16-17 mph Rev Rate: 400 Axis Tilt: 2 degrees

Axis Rotation: 84 PAP: 5" Left and 1/8th up Pattern: THS 39-40 ft

Ball: Mastermind Strategy Weight: 15.3 Top Weight: 2.5

Drill Pattern: 70 X 4" X 25 Weight Hole: P3 position

Smooth and predictable are the best words to describe the Mastermind Strategy. One of the best things of this ball is the hitting power and continuation through the pins. The Strategy get through the heads easily. Good back end recovery if thrown out to far. Never worried that this ball would make it back to the pocket. The Strategy is a medium to heavy oil ball, but is still tame enough to use on multiple patterns. I was easily a whole arrow deeper with my Strategy compared to my original Mastermind. Easily a ball to use when you need a little extra up front to cut through that oil, but not sacrificing on back end performance. The ball motion overall is a very strong arch. If you need something to combat the oil and destroy the pins, then the Brunswick Strategy is the ball for you! Another winner for Brunswick.

Exellent Performance Must Have!!!!

This ball allows me to play the deep inside part of the lanes. It seems to come back from about anywhere and doesn't lose carry. A lot of equipment will burn up and die when you start hooking the whole lane but not this one. This gives me a look that I don't usually have. This ball is a must have!!!!

Wow! A must have!

This ball is a must have! Compared to the original Mastermind this ball is cleaner through the fronts and a few more boards pop in the backend. Whats most impressive is the continuation through the pins and it never seems to burn up and lose carry no matter how deep you get. Another winner from Team Brunswick!!
