Continuing the success of the Vintage Vapor Zone Brunswick is intoducing the Vapor Zone Solid to handle heavier oil conditions. This ball uses the same Zone Asymmetric core used in the previous version along with the solid version of the Activator Plus 2.0 coverstock. The Vapor Zone Solid is finished with 500, 2000 Siaair that gives the ball great traction on medium to heavy oil conditions.
Here is the continuity of last year vintage vapor zone, the Vapor Zone Solid. This ball uses the same core as last year but this time it's wrapped with the Activator plus 2.0. This combination provides more hook in the midlane compared to the original Vapor Zone. It comes with a 500 and 2000 Siaair pad finish on it.
Since I really loved the original, I went with the same drilling. It's a pin up 60 x 4.5 x 40 drilling.
On the lane, the ball reacts like it was supposed to be. I compared the ball with the DV8 Instigator and the original vapor zone. Compared to the Instigator, I moved my feet two boards right and my eyes 1 board right. The Vapor was a bit weaker and offered more midlane. Compared to the Vintage Vapor Zone, I was three boards left with my feet and two board left with my eyes. The ball had a lot more teeth and more midlane. I found that the ball would fit perfectly between both.
This ball is designed to fit better in oil but if you are a rev dominant or a slower player, you can put some polish on the surface and the ball will react perfectly for you.
To conclude, if you want to complete your Vintage Vapor Zone with a ball just a little stronger, this ball is for you.
If you threw the Vapor Zone back in the day or got the Vapor Zone Pearl last year, the solid is a must! I tend to like solids more than pearls or hybrids simply because they are more predictable for me and my ball roll. What I like most about the new Vapor Zone Solid is how much it picks up on the backend of the lane. This ball looks like it revs up on the backend and makes a consistent and predictable charge to the pocket. Give this ball some room because it will make a turn for you. When you need a little more angle or bowling on heavier patterns, this is a great ball to have in your arsenal.
where to stand and where to throw the vapor zone for a strike ball?11/4/2019 - By dustin
There are a lot of variables that can come into play on where to stand. It will depend on the lane conditions as well as your ball speed and your rev rate. You may start off standing where you normally stand and aiming for the arrow you normally aim for. If the ball misses the pocket then move the direction that you miss but continue to aim for the same arrow. For example, if you are right handed and you aim at the 2nd arrow and the ball hooks in front of the head pin and hooked too much to the left, then move where you were standing to the left some and keep aiming for that same arrow. Eventually you will find a spot that you can get good results.11/5/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
