Brunswick Rhino Red/Black/Gold Pearl

The Brunswick Rhino bowling balls balance control and power and don't react extremely to dry or oily areas on the lanes. These factors make this ball great for an entry level bowler or any bowler who isn't looking for a big hooking ball. Brunswick achieves this reaction by combining the R-16 reactive coverstock with their Light Bulb core.

If your new to the sport of bowling this is a awesome place to begin. This ball is perfect for THS during leagues or practice. The ball is a pearl which helps on the back half of the lane to create some backend .

The Rhino is a strong and smooth entry level ball from Brunswick. It is a great value and hooks a bit more than you would expect. It is a little longer than the Strike King it replaces and a bit more angular at the breakpoint. I plan to use this ball when my benchmark balls, like the Danger Zone, are hooking too much. When comparing it to the Danger zone it is about a 5 and 3 move right on the lane with my feet. The Rhino also hooks a few feet later. I believe it will see a good bit of use later in tournament blocks and when I need to start out playing right in the drier part of the lane during league. If your looking for a great performance for a good value I recommend checking out the new Rhino.

Brunswick Entry Level Rhino

Rev Rate ::: 300
Ball speed:::: 16 mph
Right Handed
PAP 4 3/8 over by 1/2 up
Condition:::::40 ft. House shot

This is my review of the New Entry Level Brunswick Rhino. I selectd the Black/Silver .
What I was looking for in this ball was a ball that can get me more right than I have been instead of spotting 17 out to 10 .
What I got was just what I was looking for. The New Rhino got me lined up on20 with my left foot and playing straighter than I ever have before. I can play 8 or 9 and get the ball down the lane longer than and a little sharper break down lane. This ball gave me the down lane movement without over reacting. This is going to be an excellent ball for me when the lane breks down later in the session.
This will give me the control on shorter patterns also. I will recommend the New Rhino is you are looking for a ball that is controllable and predictable as you move right and play the outside lines.

The opinions expressed are solely those of the writer and not Brunswick Bowling .

Low price point for high performance

This Rhino was an exceptional amount of backend for the price point on house. Effortless length and strong motion off the dry was exactly what Brunswick wanted to deliver and they hit the mark. I found it to be about 3-2 off of my Strike King, so they've upped the ante of low performance results. On the 37 ft high volume sport pattern, the Rhino had a tough time getting back to the pocket as expected with the shiny finish, so I took it down to 1000 and found that it was very handy as the fronts and mids began to break down. The surface helped even out my reaction as well and became a great tool for tough patterns when you need to clear the fronts and not be violent on the backend. Another great Brunswick product! #TeamBrunswick

VIBRANT COLORS, Predictable Strong motion off the dry, HITTING POWER at the price point!
Best Uses:
Shorter Patterns, Beginning Bowlers, Drier Conditions
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend


Very impressed with how hard this ball hits! Dont really see that out of balls at this price point. Very easy length down the lane with a predictable move off the backend but really drives through the pins. Great piece for me on shorter patterns and late in the day dry lanes. Have seen guys with slower ball speeds or guys with a ton of revs really crushing racks with this ball on a fresh house shot

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: This Rhino could be a great option for you. The reaction is not going to be overly aggressive but gives a decent hook on your average house bowling conditions and is versatile enough for you to use one ball most of the night.

Question: I am 81 yrs young, and started bowling again 3or4 months ago. Back when I did bowl, more than 50 yrs earlier, no one used a hook ball. I'm determined to learn it, but not having much luck with my urethane ball. Would this ball be a good "next step" for me?
