The Brunswick Stellar Hybrid mid-performance bowling ball reintroduces the popular Versa Max core. This proven core is paired with the high RG, high Differential Activator Plus 2.0. This combination offers great length with a skid, flip reaction on medium to medium-dry lane conditions.
The Stellar features Brunswick’s innovative outer core technology called DynamiCore. After watching Walter Ray Williams throw this ball the entire tournament, I knew I could not go wrong. For me, the Stellar is a very late heavy rolling ball. I have used this on some of the house shots to control the pocket and in tournaments to control the backend. A great addition to the Brunswick Family.
The Stellar is very impressive. This ball is extremely smooth and controllable. This is a great benchmark ball. It is a great step down from the Damn Good Verge. The Stellar is extremely smooth and continuous off the spot. It goes through the pins unbelievably good. It throws the pins with ease. The shelf appeal is fantastic. It feels a spot in my bag that I didn't know I was missing. Nothing else I have is this motion. It is special. Do not sleep on this ball.
This ball has 2 of my favorite combinations a bowling ball can have. Versa Max cover and activator cover. Extremely clean through the front part of the lane for a hybrid with strong angular, yet controllable backend motion. It controls the middle part of the lane without losing anything down lane. This is a great medium condition ball and a great ball to go to after your higher end ball starts to lose energy.
I picked up two of the Brunswick Stellar since I really wanted to see both the pin up and pin down reactions. I've found that while similar, they do have their differences. The pin down can get down lane further and a pin down solid but still has a strong movement on the backend while also being controllable. The pin up version can certainly get down the lane further than and pin down version but not as far as my Zenith Pearl but it is still controllable off the spot. For these I would say they fall in between the reactions you'd expect from the hybrid and a pearl ball, a bit more length than a normal hybrid but not as long as a normal pearl. This type of reaction has made it my benchmark ball to work off of and it has been very reliable and successful on my house conditions on league night
Is the core the same in 13 pound?
Does this ball come with DynamiCore ? The picture shows the blue color like it would be DynamiCore that’s the reason for the question
Does it come not drilled? I plan on having it drilled at my bowling shop.
We offer a drilling option for an additional fee but you may decline this option if you want the ball to be drilled at your local proshop.
How do y’all drill ball to fit my hand?
The only way for us to do the custom drilling is if you can provide us with the exact measurements or a previous drill sheet from a ball you had drilled before. If you do not have the measurements we could not do the drilling and would have to send the ball without holes so you can drill this locally.
Is this ball a good option for a senior bowler with a 165 average
Yes, this option could be a good fit if you needed a bowling ball that gives you decent length but not something that skid flips on the backend in medium oil conditions. If you have a slower ball speed you may could use this in heavier oil conditions too.
I throw a Nexus Pearl full roller would the Stellar give me about the same length and controlled back end.
The Nexus Pearl was considered a high performance ball and designed to work in heavier oil while the Stellar was a mid performance ball designed to work in medium oil. Both have good length but the Stellar was a hybrid cover which does try to read a little earlier than a pearl cover on the Nexus. However the Nexus Pearl has a higher hook potential.
