Finally, A Urethane Ball I Can Use
I don't get a lot of opportunities to throw urethane equipment, in part, because of my rev rate and speed. However, the U-Motion is a very different urethane ball than I have thrown in the past.
What I really like about the U-Motion is a much stronger motion through the front part of the lane and that it retains enough energy for me on the backend. If you are looking for a new urethane ball, this is definitely one to consider.

Here is my take on the new U-Motion by Brunswick. The U-Motion is a solid urethane ball finished at 1000 Siaair. The ball has the U-Motion Core and is Deep Dark Purple in color and comes with a 2 year warranty.
My "vitals" are a 403 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 over. I have thrown the ball at box surface and at 4000 Abralon. I have thrown the ball mostly on house patterns.
My sense is this ball will be best suited for very wet/dry patterns as well as shorter sport patterns. As with most urethane balls, control is the best way to describe the motion of the U-Motion. At 4000 Abralon, I felt the U-Motion went too long and was very sensitive to any carrydown in the pattern. At box surface, the U-Motion reacted much better. Compared to a Purple Urethane Hammer, the U-Motion, in my opinion, shows a little milder motion. That being said, where urethane ball is the preferred means of attacking the pattern, the U-Motion will not disappoint.
See your local proshop for more information on the new Brunswick U-Motion.

Consistent, Predictable Motion!
The U-Motion by Brunswick is a urethane must for your arsenal. The core features a higher RG and lower DIFF for excellent urethane ball motion. The U-Motion has a hook rating of 35 out of 100. This means it provides a consistent predictable ball motion that is most successful on shorter patterns and/or lighter volumes of oil.

This ball gives me a very predictable and smooth motion to the pocket. For me, its best used on shorter patterns for the most part and also can be used to for extreme wet/dry conditions. Comparing this to the True Motion, the biggest difference for me is the stronger motion it has and also the hitting power. Definitely recommend this ball if you're looking for control and predictability.

This ball is AMAZING!!!!!
This ball is probably the best urethane ball I have ever thrown. The ball carries like reactive and hits like a truck! If you have wanted to try urethane or in need of a new one for tournaments, do yourself a favor and try the U Motion! A lot of people you on;y throw urethane in tournaments, but this ball I think would be great for league bowlers too! Especially for those dry houses lol
