True "Grit"... I can dig it!
I will say that I have not had the opportunity to play with this ball as much as I would have wanted to, but for the amount of time I have had the chance to test this against the original Tenacity, and even matched with my DV8 Hitman and Hitman Enforcer, I can tell you that the Tenacity Grit is one of a kind... backend reaction -- CLEAN... pin carry -- CRISP... hitting power -- DYNAMICORE! The colors on this ball are very appealing and downlane you can see the motor (the core) working as it drives through the pocket. This version is earlier than the original Tenacity release, but you will get the "shakes" when you throw this ball in league play because the performance of this release will have you talking about it being a favorite in your bag... along with the original, it is going to be a favorite of mine!

Must Have Ball for Higher Volume Patterns
I'm a huge fan of the original Tenacity and so I was super excited to get chance to throw the Tenacity Grit. I have found great success with this ball on heavier volume patterns and longer patterns. This ball is really clean through the front and continuous on the backend.
This ball comes with a 500 - 1000 - 3000 finish. I haven't done any surface adjustments to this ball yet but I've been so pleased with the initial reaction, I haven't wanted to change it.
The Tenacity Grit fits into the Pro/All Purpose category meaning that the ball utilizes Brunswick's most advanced technology and is a versatile ball across a variety of lane conditions with a continuous strong arcing motion.

The Tenacity Grit is a stronger version of the original Tenacity. It reads earlier in the midlane area while still providing good backend recovery. This ball is not the earliest of reactions but is not allergic to oil. This ball will provide you with the ability to play in the oil and create angle to the outside part of the lane. So far, I have found the Tenacity Grit to perform best when my heavier oil balls are starting to be a bit too early. This one is a step down from balls like the Kingpin Max and the Quantum Bias. The Tenacity Grit also works very well when used in the oilier part of the lane on fresher house conditions. Overall, the Tenacity Grit adds versatility and continuation to the Brunswick lineup. If you are looking for length and continuation on moderate to heavier conditions, take a look at the Tenacity Grit

Great strong bal
The new Tenacity Grit is a great follow up to the original Tenacity. With the OOB surface, it allows you to play in the oil with a quick response to friction. I see this ball as a couple feet earlier than the original and a little smoother on the back end while still retaining the hitting power with assistance of the DynamiCore. Great ball for the fresh or when you want to move in and open up the lanes.
