Brunswick Vintage LT-48

The Vintage LT-48 combines old-school styling with new technology to make this ball an instant classic. This solid black ball takes the 3C solid reactive coverstock and combines it with the Medium RG symmetric core to create extra control, carry, and consistency of a variety of lane conditions. The length and versatility of this ball match up well with bowlers that have a slower ball speed and higher rev rates. “I am very excited about the Vintage LT–48! This ball provides outstanding length allowing me to relax and roll the ball to the breakpoint without any concern for early hook.” –Johnny Petraglia

Shows Promise

I had one of the old LT-48's and really liked that ball so when they came out with the new, redesigned LT-48, I had to try it out of nostalgia. I haven't thrown it very much yet; but I really like the way it really turns into the pocket and the drive it has when it gets there. I need to get a lot more practice in with this ball before it becomes my go to, but believe it will soon.

A blast from the past !

I got this ball so I can use only one ball. I bowled with the LT48 30'some years ago and was very happy it was retro'ed back into service. I can even use it to shoot my ten pin by breaking my wrist. This ball has just enough reaction to perform without over performing. I got this ball to compensate for age and not being able to "crank it" as I did in my youth. It has worked out very well!

Exceeds All Expectations

I am a current Brunswick Staff Player who has thrown nothing but Brunswick bowling Products for 25 consecutive years. Moved to TN 4 years ago and joined a couple of leagues, did not know anyone, as I got more comfortable in the league and got to know my fellow bowlers better I became very good friends with one guy in the league. He has been bowling for 35 years but had taken some time off and came back to the game a few years back before I met him. He threw an exclusive brand and had dilled up 10-15 of this brand ball the past two years. He is very talented and throws the ball very well but has a very keen eye to bowling fundamentals. I want to say that even though he was very talented and was a 200+ average bowler he had never thrown a 300 game much less an 800 series. As I got to know him better I naturally put on my Brunswick Salesman Hat and was trying to get him to at least get outside that box and give Brunswick a try. That finally happened last year when we drilled up a Brunswick Exile, shortly after that came his first 300 game and he continued to try the Brunswick products. He drilled up a Radical Yeti Uncaged which he threw 75% of the time and his average kept creeping upward. Staying loyal to the Radical line he then drilled up a Primo and one week later came his second 300 game. From there he drilled a Radical Rave , a Brunswick Soul and a DV8 Deviant which success came quickly from all three. Just recently he shot his 3rd 300 game with the Brunswick Soul and then drilled up a Brunswick LT-48 to help with a particular league shot, second week of use his first 800 series came, an actual 818. Brunswick Products have made this man a better bowler now carrying a high of 230 and a low of 217. Terry has come along way in two years and myself and Brunswick could not be more proud of his accomplishments. I feel Brunswick Products offer the most diverse options for all bowlers on this planet and should be a serious consideration by all.

fun ball to throw

I am using this ball on a broken-down house shot. It gets down the lane and finds the pocket consistently with no over-under reaction that you can get with more aggressive, higher-flaring balls. This ball does its best work deep in the pocket, I have been tripping a lot of 4 pins with this ball. On the other hand, half-pocket hits can have you shooting at some corner pins if you give the pocket away too much, but that can be said about a lot of control pieces. It's fun to throw because it rolls so sweet and digs in late. I actually believe it will do just fine on heavier shots because the ball will store more energy going downlane and will pop a little harder late, provided you sqaure up to the pocket. This is a no-brainer, at under a hundred bucks it may be the best value out there right now, lots to like about this ball.

I owned the old LT48

I had the old LT48 and I loved it. Now I have the newest revised LT48. At first when I got it I didn't like it at all. Then when I start to practice with it I started to like it. Now it's my first ball out of the bag. Just had to learn how to roll it and mean what I was doing when I put it on the lanes.

Great Ball!

This ball combines a rich history and a consistent roll/carry through the pins. I was skeptical to think this ball was going to be as special as it has turned out to be. For the stronger more advanced players, this ball typifies control on the most demanding lane conditions. For those bowlers that want a step up from an introductory reactive resin, this is the best option in my opinion. With the LT-48 being the first ball in Brunswick Vintage Series, they have certainly set the bar high for their next release.

WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG TO DRILL THIS BALL

I drilled this ball 45 x 4 1/4 x 35 with no weight hole.

I have drilled all of the Brunswick releases over the past 2 yrs, EXCEPT THIS ONE. All I can say is I do not know why it took my this long to drill this ball. IT IS AMAZING!!!!!. Easy length is an understatement and the move on the back is smooth and strong and the carry is just ridiculous. This ball paid for itself the first night I used it and has a permanent space in my bag, whether or not I used it. This is the perfect ball to complete your arsenal hands down.

My success with Brunswick just keeps getting better

Converted bowler from another brand, years of bowling experience 35+ years, have never bowled a 300 game or 800 series until I converted to Brunswick Products. Shot my first 800 (818) with a newly drilled Brunswick LT-48 , This ball is so clean through the fronts and very predicable during the Hook and Roll transition and carry exceeds my expectations. Love this ball

Money well spent

This is the first bowling ball that I had drilled specific to my hands and I noticed the difference almost immediately. It feels lighter on my hand and is easier to throw. The biggest challenge that I encountered was learning where to stand on the approach and a proper release point. After bowling about 50 practice games, I have started to incorporate it into my routine in league play for the last few weeks of the spring and all of the summer season.

Wow, What A Surprise

Bowler Specs: Speed: 17.5 Revs: 500 Layout: Full Roller (pin 3.5 to grip center) Pattern: House, Modified House
Wow what a big surprise this ball was for me. I put my typical full roller "pin up" layout on this ball and expected it to be fairly tame compared to my Gold Rhino and Danger Zone, but to my pleasant surprise it held its own very well and even out hooked my Danger Zone down lane! The ball floats right through the fronts easier than the Danger Zone, and is also cleaner in the mids, but has a good 3-4 boards more shape on the backend. I had it about 3-2 stronger from the Danger Zone on the backend, and about 2-1 less than the Gold Rhino in both length and backend reaction. This will be a great bridge between the other two balls, but also a great number one ball on house shots and dryer to medium conditions! -Justin Knowles, Brunswick Regional Staff Member

Question: The signature is differant than in the 70's and what does the FRM084 mean

6/18/2016 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer: Hi Arjai, so I'm not seeing that sequence of numbers and letters anywhere, so I can't answer that question for you. Regarding the signature however, I can say that this is a newly designed ball that is meant to be like the ball from the 70's. Since the ball is new, he gave the designers a new signature.
