The Brunswick Twist is a great option for someone looking to take a step up from a plastic/spare ball. This ball combines the proven R-16 Reactive coverstock with the Twist Low Diff core. This combination allows for easy length while maintaining a strong and controllable backend reaction when up against drier lane conditions. The Twist line of bowling balls is great for any age or skill level.

will it hook
This ball will have a slight hook for it is an Entry Level ball.
excuse my ignorance but this is for candlepin bowling correct?
This is actually for 10 pin bowling. We do not currently have any candlepin bowling equipment on our website unfortunately.
I am 73 and only throw about 12 mph, so I need a harder ball that still has some back end finish. Would this work?
This ball is designed to finish with a decent backend hook if you bowl it in lighter oil conditions. If you try this in medium or heavier oil then it may not be stronger enough to come back unfortunately and you may need something more suited for those lane conditions.
Is this a plastic ball?
The coverstock of this ball will be a reactive resin material.

My wife wants her first personal ball. A nine pound house ball is her physical limit, 8 is better. A 100 game is a good day but she has some natural hook and wants to take advantage of it. This ball is the best fit I can find. What do you think?
In 8lbs there really is only one choice for a performance ball. Most performance balls would start at 10lbs and even those options you are really just paying to get a better coverstock but you will not get much for the weight block. That is the case with this Twist. The coverstock will be much better on this ball than a plastic ball which will give you some hook potential. You could also refinish this ball to a duller finish to help the ball grip more if you want to get more hook out of it.
If l purchased two Twist bowling balls and kept 1 polished and the other just wet sanded would it change the hook on the lane?
Yes, if you were to have one with a duller finish and keep one polished that would give you a different reaction and the duller ball could work better in medium oil while the polished ball would still be best in lighter oil.
Will different drilling layout effect the hook of say two twist bowling balls (1 green and black, the other purple and red)?
Yes, if you use different drilling layouts you can see a little bit of a different reaction for these bowling balls. If you combine a different drilling layout and also a different finish for two twists you can really see a big difference.
Is this Symmetrical or asymmetric ?
This ball will have a Symmetric weight block.
Due to the time it takes to produce the Brunswick Twist Red/Purple ball it will ship in immediately. We cannot ship this ball outside the United States.
