Brunswick is relaunching the Quantum product line with the Quantum Forest Green Solid. This line of bowling balls features single density cores along with thicker urethane coverstocks. This thicker coverstock offers durability, longevity, and massive hitting power. This ball is unique in that each core has a unique design to compensate for the gross weight of the ball, the core's dynamics, and the balls hook potential. This ball uses Brunswick's PK2016 Pearl coverstock formula which creates skid through the front part of the lane, then a powerful breakpoint reaction, and finally an impressive backend reaction when bowling on medium oil conditions.
Brunswick Fire Quantum
Layout: Full Roller, length and backend
Specs: 18 mph, 500 Revs, Lefty Two-Hander
The Fire Quantum delivered on all the hype right out of box for me. I drilled it comparatively to my biggest pearl, which is a Melee Jab, and the Fire Quantum out hooked it by 4-2. The extra cover stock (3.5 more than normal) tremendously increased the hitting power and my carry went up by an easy 3-5 hits a night. I was able to use this ball on both house shots and Kegel Dead Man's Curve, which allowed me to get in deep and go 25-10 with easy recovery. On house shots, I'm forced a bit deeper as well, playing 25-5 and maintaining hitting power. I can see this ball being a house shot killer, but also being a very good ball to get in and maintain angles on fresh longer sport patterns. Bowlers of all skill levels will be instantly impressed by the backend reaction and hitting power of this ball, and I highly recommend this ball for lower ball speed and low rev rate players looking to get the extra few hits a game!

The new Fire Quantum is part blast from the past and part technological marvel. The mushroom block pairs well with the new Powerkoil 2016 cover to form one of my favorite ball motions ever. It gets fantastic length down the lane and recovers very well on shots missed wide of target. The Fire Quantum is the perfect step down from the Forrest Green Quantum when it is a little too strong or you need a bit more recovery down lane. It also has enough midlane read to use on some fresh patterns. I have shot 300s with both of the new Quantums and I have found them very difficult to put down no matter what I use them on. The carry is phenomenal! I have noticed an improvement of a strike or two a game over my other equipment. If your looking for extra backend recovery, more area, and a few more messengers check out the new Fire Quantum!
If you haven't thrown this bowling ball then you're missing out on a gem!!! This ball has carried me to the pay window numerous times. Just when you think it was bad off your hand it recovers and still strikes!!! Get one today and also when you purchase one you will get a three ball bag for free!!! Dont miss out!!
You can hug the side of the lane and know it will break to the pocket and watch the pins explode.
Pin above ring finger and CG is stacked below no hole. First ball out of my bag on fresh oil .This ball has been better then words can describe for me. The Quantum is The best remake of any ball ever. To be able to have the same ball reaction from the original on todays conditions is awesome. Great job Brunswick this ball is amazing. You can see The increased pin action with this ball on light hits and the power to drive ten in the pit on flush shots . My league bag is The Forrest Quantum , Fire Quantum and a spare ball these balls are just that good. . They are a great 1-2 combo as the lanes transition thru the night. If you haven't got one get one and soon by December 31, 2016 to receive the free bag.
BRUNSWICK FIRE PEARL QUANTUM REVIEW
James Goulding III
PAP: 4 5/8" x 0"
17.5 – 18.0 MPH
Brunswick Fire Pearl Quantum
Layout: 33* X 5.25" x 67*, pin under middle finger
X-hole: ¾" x 2.5" deep, 2" down on VAL
40ft. House Pattern, Medium-Heavy Blend
I drilled the Fire Pearl Quantum pin under to be a smooth, yet longer version of the Forest Green Quantum, and that's exactly what I got. Using this ball on fresh THS is great, especially when I have room left with friction to wheel it off of, as it creates extra area and "miss room". Being on the left side, I am able to play straighter with more aggressive equipment while still being able to "bang on it", which is why the Fire Pearl Quantum was a perfect fit for my game. My first three game set on my league was a 720 with games of 239, 221, 260. The ball reaction is very clean through the heads and mid lane, but still gives a strong heavy roll into the pocket. I believe the combination of the strong symmetrical motor of the Quantum mushroom core, as well as the pearl cover stock, both allow this ball to achieve a more down lane type of hook, while still rolling heavy, which is the type of reaction you want from a versatile pearl. As far as comparison to other equipment, I played 5 boards further left with my feet, and 3 boards further left with my eyes than with the Forest Green Quantum. If you're looking for that benchmark pearl ball in your lineup, then pick up a Fire Pearl Quantum.
I would say that overall the Fire Pearl Quantum is a must own for any bowler looking to add a ball that can handle a variety of lane conditions, from medium blends to shorter patterns. The cover stock is very surface adjustment friendly, so don't be afraid to sand or polish the cover stock to your liking. This ball fits perfectly behind the Forest Green Quantum (very aggressive) and the Brute Strength (medium oil monster) in my arsenal.
I drilled my Fire Quantum with the CG right under the ring finger and the pin about .75 inch to the right and about 1 inch above the ring finger. I've found this ball to be smooth a little more on the smoother side, for a pearl, and it hits the pins incredibly hard. The ball will pick up just a bit sooner than most of my pearl equipment. This ball is a totally different look than anything I currently have in my bag. I definitely recommend it for medium to dry lane conditions. The pin carry and energy possessed in this ball are something that I have not seen before. I'd recommend this to anybody looking for a good benchmark ball.
Very versatile ball. Love this ball, it is my benchmark ball. Nice down and in and when the heads brake down I can move inside and pitch it out with no problem.
The Fire Pearl Quantum has a similar motion to the original Quantum balls from 20 years ago because the construction, 2 piece ball, and core shapes are similar. With the pearl PK2016 coverstock formulation, it can handle medium amounts of oil and would work best when the lanes start to break down and you need a little more push through the front part of the lane. This ball has a higher RG which will help the ball get farther down lane before going into the roll stage. This ball is a great compliment when the forest green quantum is hooking too early. I used the pin down 60 x 4" x 75 dual angle layout on this ball to give me a smoother arcing type of motion on the lane. This layout works perfectly to create a smoother rolling ball with good continuation. I can use this ball close the same line as the forest green quantum but will get farther down the lane because of the pearl coverstock. I have used this ball on a flatter 39' sport pattern later in the block when the forest green was hooking too early, and it allowed me to open up the lane a little without a skid /snap type of reaction because of my drilling. With the core weighing about 4 pounds, and 3.5 times more coverstock weighing about 11 pounds. This ball will transfer more energy to the pins, and create more opportunity to strike. The fire pearl quantum will give you a predictable ball motion, good continuation downlane, and will help you raise your strike percentage.
Drilled my pearl quantum pin under my middle finger with a small hole on my axis. This a great compliment to the green quantum. When the lanes break down, this is a great ball to take a jump inside and open up the lane. I would say this ball is a couple feet longer than the green with a much stronger backend motion. A great ball for medium conditions during transition when you want to move inside and hook it.
mine is pin above the bridge , with a 3 1/2 inch pin.. surprisingly used it in a practice sessions on 43 foot flat pattern ... The ball carried and read the pattern better than I thought possible . Tending to use stronger solid balls at the beginning of the block ,I threw this being a pearl , I was amazed at the ,motion and carry of this ball.
I love the feel of the ball. It's all coverstock and core, no filler. It has great backend without being skid snappy. The pin action is explosive with out throwing pins over the corners.
Pin above ring finger and CG kicked out 3" from center of grip low hole.This ball has been better then words can describe for me. The Quantum is The best remake of any ball ever. To be able to have the same ball reaction from the original on todays conditions is awesome. Great job Brunswick this ball is amazing. You can see The increased pin action with this ball on light hits and the power to drive ten in the pit on flush shots . My league bag is The Forrest Quantum , Fire Quantum and a spare ball these balls are just that good. . They are a great 1-2 combo as the lanes transition thru the night.

Im right handed not quite a stroker drilled mine pin down under fingers. Cg out right 1 1/2 good thru front and hook at back. Carrys very well and hits hard.
The first time I thru this Ball was against my Bowling Instructor and beat him 257 to 227. I saw him throw a 300 with it, and it's the only Ball he is using. I haven't thrown anything below a 200 yet ! Buy one.
Fire Quantum – Drilled pin up, OOB Surface. This ball is exactly what I've been looking for, a strong symmetrical pearl! The Fire is very smooth off of the friction but still strong, its more a readable predictable motion as compared to some of the asym pearls that flip hard off the dry. Very continuous and definitely hits as advertised. Also the quantum bags are an awesome deal! Good quality triple roller, sturdy wheels. Can not beat this deal!
Having thrown 100% Brunswick product bowling balls now for 25 years, I have never owned a Quantum, I am a med to low rev rate bowler which I have 16 deg of axis tilt,rev rate of 240 and ball speed of 14.5-15 mph. Drilled up a Brunswick Quantum Fire Pearl with one of my favorite dual layouts for my league play of 70x 3 3/4 x 30 where I can generally stay right a little and create the angle of entry that is required for carry in our two leagues which has a very poor 40 ft flat house shot. This ball is very impressive, clears the fronts so clean allows my desired skid,hook and roll phases look custom made, plus carry very well. Several other bowlers I bowl with have purchased this ball because of that. This ball performs in a big way, exceeds my expectations, and at times I just don't want to take it out of my hand. Hats off to The Brunswick staff in particular Billy O who's hard work and dedication in the R&D work that was required to make this ball what it is. In my opinion as a bowler you should never have to look outside the Brunswick Product line which includes Radical and DV8 to find the ball that suits your game and will compliment you with improvement to your existing game. Thank You Brunswick for giving me that competitive edge
Brunswick Quantum Fire. A must have ball in your bag.
This has to be one of my favorite light oil balls. I loved the Brunswick Melee Jab. When that was discontinued I looked to the Quantum Fire to fill that spot. The house I bowl in on Monday night is so dry so playing down and in isn't an option for me. So left is where I start. This ball is so clean and predictable.
