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 Solid coverstock formula which offers great mid-lane traction as well as awesome backend reaction when facing medium to heavy oil conditions.

Wow this is a lot of ball! I drilled this ball comparatively to my Absolute Nirvana, which is my strongest solid, and was blown away that the Quantum was both more in the mid lane and more on the backend than the Nirvana. Not only does it have more overall hook for me, but the continuation through the pin deck is unmatched in my bag. I find myself leaving stone 8 pins often because this ball just refuses to quit once it reaches the pins. I used this ball on Kegel Dead Man's Curve on the fresh and was able to really blend the pattern out, playing deep angles to start and really set up well to be complimented by the Fire Quantum. This ball will definitely be the first ball out of my bag when I need a big solid, then transitioning to the Fire Quantum when I need a little more length and a sharper backend. Like the Fire, the hitting power on the Forest Green was exceptional. It truly is a different sound when these balls hit the pocket and I am continually throwing messengers with these pieces. More entry angle and more hitting power leads to higher scores and happier bowlers!

I was so excited for this ball. I drilled mine pin above the ring finger with a shorter pin placement. Drilled it , brought it to league to see how she rolled .... first game 300. Been a while since I had something strong that could still go through the pins . Loving this ball so far, go get one!
Drilled my green quantum pin over my middle finger, cg slightly kicked without a weight hole. For me this ball is strong but with a smooth arc, extremely controllable for a high end ball. It rolls a lot better for me when I'm trying to keep my angles closed and target in front of me. Definitely a bench mark type ball for conditions with more volume. Takes well to surface changes as I've used it out of box, at 3,000, and shined. Overall a great ball for anyone looking for a high end ball with control and predictability.
In my opinion it keeps the pins low

Brunswick has once again improved on a blast from the past! The Forest Green Quantum is clean through the front with a very reliable midlane read. The difference in this and other recent releases seems to be the backend recovery it provides. I have found that once the pattern breaks down I can stay with this ball longer than other strong solid reactive balls. It seems to make it through all 3 games of league when other balls don't. The pin carry is simply amazing with this ball! It allows me to open the lane quite a bit and still be able to get the flat ten out. It is simply a few pins better on average a game than anything that isn't a new Quantum. I have thrown many strikes with it including a 300 game. Both Quantums have been very good for me personally. I can't seem to put them down. If your looking for hook on oilier conditions and great carry, check out the new Forrest Green Quantum!
