The Brunswick Prism Hybrid high performance bowling ball helps introduce the Portal core which has a very low RG with a high differential and intermediate differential. This core features Brunswicks DynamiCore and DOT technology. This core is covered with Activator Composite Technology (ACT) Hybrid and then finished with 500 Siaair and then Crown Factory Compound. This finish offers easy length while still reacting at the breakpoint. These factors make up a glossy bowling ball with an asymmetric core that can read the mid-lane well and offers a powerful and angular backend reaction.
I've only thrown this ball a handful of games, but from what I've seen, it reads the midlane well and stores up quite a bit of energy while going through the pins. Don't hesitate, buy now!
This is a great looking ball that introduces the Portal core which has a very low RG with a high differential and intermediate differential. This core features Brunswicks DynamiCore and DOT technology. This core is covered with Activator Composite Technology! This asymmetric core offers length hat can read the mid-lane well and offers a powerful and angular backend. This is def a league starter almost every night.
The Prism Hybrid by Brunswick is a pro performance bowling ball that has a clean, smooth mid-lane with a more angular flip on the backend. The Prism Hybrid has a hook rating and strength of 84 out of 100. This hybrid's coverstock is ACT with 500 Siaair and finished with crown factory compound. This ball works best on medium oil and has easy down lane recovery. It is a great ball-down to the new Prism Solid, when you need more of a backend motion.
This is one of the best asyms I have thrown since being able to throw Brunswick. I would absolutely recommend this ball to anyone. I love how the ball will make it through the fronts with no issue and then dig in and make a left turn on any volume pattern. This ball is one of the greats and I will be drilling multiples.
Prism Hybrid new low RG Protal core wrapped with A.C.T. Hybrid. It provides Super clean and a very strong skid flip reaction. It is super versatile for many volumes and lengths of patterns. I cracked the cover with a 3k by hand and it went from Beast to Super Beast mode. This ball is must to be in everyone's bag.
This is my first ball drilled since Brunswick purchased the EBI brands. The Prism Hybrid is a good one to start with as it rolls very nice on our current house pattern. Comparing it against my Track/ EBI equipment I would say it is a slightly smoother Track Tactix Hybrid. It picks up a little sooner in the mids and is a little smoother down lane but has a very nice shape. Pins seem to stay low & mix well. I see using this anytime on house shot and for attacking when tournament patterns start to transition.
Here is my take on the Brunswick Prism Hybrid. It features the Portal asymmetric core wrapped by the ACT Hybrid coverstock- color Cyan/Black and Opaque White. Box finish is Crown Factory Compound. The Prism Hybrid features DOT technology and thus, carries a 4 year warranty
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I have thrown this ball on House and Kegel Tungsten patterns. I have thrown it at box and 3000 Abralon. The layout used on the Brunswick Prism Hybrid I drilled was 30 x 6 x 20, no weight hole.
As a former Hammer Staffer, now under the Brunswick family, I wanted to compare this ball to the Hammer Statement Hybrid which by the numbers, would be the closest ball to the Prism Hybrid. The Prism Hybrid, as would be expected shows strong downlane motion. What I found to be interesting is compared to a similarly drilled/surfaced Hammer Statement Hybrid, I found the Prism put me about 3 boards further right. Overall, compared to many other asymmetric pieces, I did not feel like I had to force the Prism Hybrid through the fronts- it glides through on its own with again a very strong and defined downlane motion. Unless you have considerable speed, the Prism I believe is best used on medium to longer distance patterns with medium to heavier volumes. I think this ball will suit many different styles and could be a benchmark ball for many.
See you proshop operator for more information or to purchase a Brunswick Prism Hybrid.
I absolutely love this ball. The way it comes off the spot down lane is something I've been missing from my bag. I find myself using it a lot during league but I also use it on different sport patterns. If you haven't tried one I highly recommend it

The Prism Hybrid is a versatile angular ball that is very useful on moderate conditions. This one gets weekly use in league. I can use it on the fresh but where this Prism really shines once the transition occurs. It has allowed me to move into the puddle of oil in the middle and go around the lane. This ball is about 5 boards less overall than my Prism Solid and about 2 boards more than my Vapor Zone Pearl. It is longer and more angular than the Prism Solid but less angular for me than the Vapor Zone. This ball handles the oil very well and starts in the right part of the lane while maintaining backend reaction. The Prism Hybrid is a great combination of angularity and predictability that will be useful for many styles on moderate conditions. If you are looking for an angular ball that will handle oil check out the Prism Hybrid.
It's understandable that this ball is more versatile than the Prism Solid. Given its? hybrid cover, this ball hooks about 4-5 boards less than the solid, but provides a much stronger and angular reaction on the backend given its cover. Stay firm with this ball and it won't disappoint. Very clean through the mid-lane, this ball delivers strong hitting power. I've had pins flying in directions I haven't had with other balls. I really like the original Method (Hybrid) and this ball is much stronger than the Method but still controllable and reliable. I always know where this ball is going.

This will be a very strong ball for medium oil conditions and may even work well for you in some heavier oil conditions. If you typically bowl when the lanes are medium to heavy then I believe this would be good for you but if the lanes are medium to lighter oil most of the time then this would be too strong probably to use.1/8/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
Does this ball require oil removal after so many games?11/9/2020 - By twiggy
Yes, any performance ball will require that you clean the ball off to help prevent the oil from soaking into the coverstock. With this being a higher performance ball it will actually soak up oil quicker than a lower performance ball so I would suggest that you have a towel with you when you are bowling and as soon as the ball comes back through the ball return take your towel and wipe off any oil that you see. Then at the end of the night before you put the ball up or in your bag I would recommend taking a ball cleaner and cleaning the ball off at the end of the night. This will help ensure that you get the best performance out of your ball for the longest time. If at any point you notice the ball is not reacting as strong as it once did, you could also check with your proshop on ways to do a deeper clean to help get some oil out of the cover.11/10/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
