Clean, smooth mid lane reaction!
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.

Best Asymmetrical in YEARS!!!!
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.

Skid Flip Monster
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.

Brunswick Prism Hybrid looks like a winner
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.

Brunswick Hybrid Prism
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 need a case of these!
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.

Prism Hybrid - Versatile and Powerful
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.
