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!

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.
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.

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!
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.
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!!
