Brunswick Phantom

Here is my take on the REMAKE Brunswick Phantom. It comes with a Black/Steel Grey solid reactive cover with box finish at 1000 Siaair and Cynosure symmetrical core. The Phantom features DOT technology and has an industry best 4 year warranty.
My "vitals" are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled have drilled 2, one with a 45 x 5 x 30 and the other with a 60 x 5 ¼ x 70 layout. I have thrown it at box finish and 3000 Abralon.
By way of disclosure, I am a former EBI Hammer staffer now a staffer with the Brunswick Brands from the November acquisition. In drilling the Phantom, I expected them to be a replacement for the Web Tours as the "numbers" are similar. I always liked the Web Tours for short sport patterns. In comparing the Phantom to the Web Tour, I had to be about 5 left compared to a Web Tour. I also saw more "shape" from the Phantom compared to the Web Tour. I then went over the Phantom with a 3000 Abralon pad on the spinner and found better ease getting the ball through the front. The best way to describe the ball motion of the Phantom is smooth and continuous. I believe that the Phantom will work well on shorter patterns because it is so smooth as well as fresh house patterns as I expect the Phantom to blend out any over/under.
If you are looking to replicate the Web Tour reaction, consider a Brunswick Phantom!

COMMENTS
Likes: Predictability and Versatility
Dislikes: none
The Vintage Phantom is a great medium condition type house shot ball. This could very well be the benchmark ball for most bowlers. It excels in any situation where a smoother reaction is needed. This one likes straighter angles and will be the first ball out of the bag when controlling the friction. This Phantom also possesses some of the characteristics of the urethane balls with the ability to better open angles once the lane breaks down. Watching this it definitely reminds me of the IQ Tour type shape going down the lane. If you are looking for a ball to blend out over under reactions on league and tough sport patterns the Phantom is your answer.

The Phantom is BACK!

I was super excited to see this release? because this ball fills a great spot in the Brunswick line as the new benchmark, all-purpose type ball. The Phantom has a low RG and low DIFF, and with Dynamicore and DOT Technology, this ball is going to give you that predictable shape without sacrificing pin carry. I've thrown this ball on house shots and sport patterns. I can play straighter with it or open the lane, and all of the results are good. I really enjoyed the Magnitude .035 and this ball is all of that and then some. It's a classic-looking ball, with a great legacy, that's been updated for today's game.
