Brunswick Mastermind Intellect: Bowling Ball Review

The Brunswick Mastermind Intellect is another one of Brunswick new high performance bowling balls for the 2014 season.

The Mastermind Ultra Low RG Asymmetric Core is designed for an angular motion with a low RG/High Differential/High MB Differential. This design transfers the most energy to the pins for higher pin action and scores.

Combined with the Honor Roll A+ Solid coverstock that offers unparalleled traction in the midlane and backend from Brunswick, and you have an absolutely brilliant ball that eats oil. Finished to a 500 Siaair Micro Pad/Royal Compound factory finish and you have an incredibly aggressive motion that allows you to open up the lane in ways never thought possible.

The Mastermind Intellect is built from the core-out to be your go-to ball for outsmarting the oil and becoming Valedictorian of your game.

Here’s what Brunswick has to say about the Mastermind Intellect:

The new Mastermind Intellect with its Royal Compound finish, provides easy length through heads, strong mid lane traction with an aggressive move on the backend on medium to heavily oiled lane conditions

Brunswick Mastermind Intellect gave us even and smooth transitions from the heads, mid-lane and the back part of the lane… This ball had good continuation with a nice controlled ball motion. The bowling ball shape was more strong arcing and worked the best playing the track area on medium to oily lane conditions… We used a pin above drilling layout, and the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 39ft house pattern in testing this ball…

The good part about the Brunswick Mastermind Intellect was it’s strong smooth controllable motion… We liked the consistent reaction we got on medium/heavy lane patterns… In addition, it played well in the track area of the lane. We felt this would be a good ball for medium to oily house patterns or when the shot has some carry down after the first game… The bad part about Brunswick Mastermind Intellect was it does needs oil to react and designed but this coverstock was very tunable with abralon or polish…

The Brunswick Mastermind Intellect was a good solid ball for playing the oil track area on medium to oily lane conditions with drier back-ends… You can get more details about this ball in the links below this post.

DV8 Thug: Bowling Ball Review

The DV8 Thug is another one of DV8’s new high performance bowling for the 2014 -2015 season.

The Thug features the new Class 13F Hybrid Reactive coverstock and the new Medium RG Thug Asymmetric core. The Thug gives bowlers easy length and lots of punch on the backend. This skid/flip reaction will increase pin carry and allow you to play inside angles with ease.

The Thug has one of the best looking color combinations ever seen in a bowling ball. The Black/Orange/Silver Pearl – Hybrid really stands out when rolling down the lane and allows bowlers to easily see the rotation on the ball. This makes adjustments easier and will allow for higher scores.

Here’s what DV8 has to say about the ball:

Featuring the new Class 13F Hybrid Reactive coverstock wrapped around the Thug core, the Thug skids easily through the front and mid-lane flipping on the backend for the most breakpoint potential of any DV8 ever on medium to oily lane conditions.

The DV8 Thug gave us a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane. In addition, to a longer and smoother back-end motion… This ball had more of an L shape ball motion and also had some fade back type entry angle to the pocket. The DV8 Thug did have good pin carry and was very controllable and it was like using a smoother ball that got down the lane and had a set up reaction to it. It seem to work good on medium to heavier oil volumes… We used 55 x 5 x 35 dual angle drilling layout, and the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 39ft house pattern in testing this ball…

The good part about the DV8 Thug was it’s ability to get down the lane and set up and not be squirty like some polished balls. The smooth angular style ball motion that worked well on medium to heavy oil patterns… The bad part about the DV8 Thug you may need to adjust the coverstock surface finish for it to perform it’s best…

The DV8 Thug was a good ball for playing inside the track area on medium heavy house patterns with drier back-ends… We feel this may be a good second and third game ball. You can get more details about this ball in the links below this post.

Columbia Throw Down: Bowling Ball Review

The Columbia Throw Down is another one of Columbia 300’s new high performance bowling balls for the 2014 season.

Description: Are you ready to Throw Down with Columbia 300? You can bring it with the Bring-It Solid coverstock that has a polished finish. This combination provides length and recovery on medium oiled lanes. This ball uses the Smack Down core to provide medium RG that will get your ball further down the lane and high differential that creates awesome continuation. The Throw Down provides great length and continuation without losing any control or hitting power. This ball pairs well on medium to dry lane conditions.

Columbia Throw Down gave us a longer slide through the heads with a medium transition to hook in the mid-lane with strong motion on the back-end… This was a great ball for medium oil patterns or when you need a ball to get through the heads or and still have a strong hit, this ball had a stronger response on the back-end but did not jump on the friction… We used the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 42ft house pattern in testing this ball and a pin under drilling…


The good part about the Columbia Throw Down was it’s ability to get trough the heads and it’s strong response on the back part of the lane and still have a strong controllable ball motion… The bad part about Columbia Throw Down it will need some dry area on the lane and works the best on medium oil patterns…

The Columbia Throw Down was a great control ball for playing on fresh medium lane conditions with drier back-ends… This is a highly recommend ball for playing a straighter line or if you need a weaker ball with a strong hit. You can get more details about this ball in the links below this post.

The Hammer Black Widow Legend gave us a longer slide along with a longer and smoother transition to hook than we expected in addition to a strong and angular back end response… The ball reacted hard off the friction but still had a good controlled reaction… We were impressed with the strong hit of this hammer bowling ball… This was very fast responding bowling ball off the friction and will need dry boards to react when using the out of box finish… We put this in the strong and controlled category of bowling balls… In addition, we used a 5 x 5 drilling layout for testing this bowling ball along with the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 38ft house pattern when testing this ball…

Storm Hy-Road Solid: Bowling Ball Review

The Storm Hy-Road Solid is another one of Storm’s new high performance bowling balls for the 2014 – 2015 season.

One of the greatest balls on earth just got stronger… the Storm Hy-Road Solid!
With major victories ranging from the PBA tour to international championships, the Hy-Road has won the world over. In fact, the original Hy-Road celebrated its fifth anniversary late last year and is still going strong!
Bowlers love the shape of this weight block; the proof is evident in the overwhelming demand from touring professionals to recreational players alike! And while the original Hy-Road is often a great choice for a wide variety of players on different lane conditions, at times we all need a little more hook and motion out of our arsenals.
That’s why Storm is introducing the new Hy-Road Solid. You will get that same cherished motion as the original version but with more traction in the midlane, just what you need when bowling on heavier oil conditions.
As you might recall, the number one factor of ball motion is coverstock. So, to expand our Thunder Line with the same great characteristics of the famed Road series, we called upon the proven R2S solid reactive shell for its uncompromised performance.
They even prepared this aggressive shell with a 2000-pad to really give it some teeth to dig deep into the heavy oil. Why did they do this? Because they know how frustrating heavy oil can be.
And don’t sweat having to decide how to drill your new Hy-Road Solid. You can use your favorite layout with confidence (or let Storm’s Vector Layout System find the right one for your style of play) as the dynamic Inverted Fe Technology weight block is one of the finest. Part of what makes this special is the thicker shell which transfers more energy to the pins at impact. More energy means more strikes, and more strikes leads to higher scores.
Storm Hy-Road Solid gave us a shorter slide through the heads along with a long and smooth transition to hook in the mid-lane. In addition, to a smooth motion on the back part of the lane… Briefly we had smooth and even transitions with this ball all though the ball did tend to lay back in the roll phase… We felt this to be a very good smooth control type solid reactive bowling ball that would work well in medium heavy to heavy oil volumes.. This was a very good bowling ball oilier or longer patterns… The ball will need some oil to perform as designed… We used 6 x 4 1/4 x 3 drilling layout, and the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 39ft house pattern in testing this ball…

The good part about the Storm Hy-Road Solid was it was very smooth and controllable. In addition, to it’s even transitions… We really enjoyed the hook and set reaction hit we got with this ball.. We felt this would be a good ball for medium to heavy house patterns or when a stronger bowling ball motion is desired. The bad part about Storm Hy-Road Solid it did burn out after the shot broke down but it was not made for drier lane conditions, in other words the ball needs oil to react as designed…
