bowlingball.com Brunswick Fortera Bowling Ball Reaction Video Review

The all new Brunswick Fortera is going to change how you view bowling.

The Fortera Exile is the definition of skid/flip.

The all new Fortify reactive coverstock is performance enhanced using additive chemistry technology. Finished with Royal Compound and Royal Shine, this coverstock will provide easy length with the quickest response to friction, to date.

The Fortera Flip core was designed for an enhanced breakpoint and maximum continuation.

The Fortera Exile will allow you to create the proper angle into the pocket from inside angles and on medium-heavy conditions.

REACTION SETUP

The Fortera Flip can be drilled using the standard drilling techniques developed for asymmetric core bowling balls.

LIGHTWEIGHT ENGINEERING

At Brunswick, the unique core shape of each individual ball is used for weights from 14 to 16 pounds. This approach to lightweight ball engineering provides bowlers with consistent ball reaction characteristics across this weight range. At 12 and 13 pounds, Brunswick uses a generic core shape with a RG-differential that is close enough to the 14 to 16 pound shape so the same drilling instructions can be used.

The Brunswick Fortera Exile is currently selling for $144.95 and rates a 229.7 on the bowlingball.com Perfect Scale®.

Pyramid Path Origin Pearl Gold Bowling Ball Review and Video


The Path Origin Pearl…Start Your Journey.

Pin to PAP(5 1/8″ over 1/8″ up) – 5 1/8″
Relation Weight Layout – RICO 45*
Balance Hole – 1″ x 2″ – 6 3/4″ from pin through cg

Surface Preparation – Out of Box (1500/Polish)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
The Path Origin Pearl was designed to offer a longer and stronger look then the original Path Origin.

By using the same core and coverstock only pearlizing it we were able to achieve an unmatched ball motion off the break point with the control that we loved so much from the Path Origin.

I ended up with multiple Path Origin’s in my bag since its release and I did have one drilled up with the “Rico” layout. It turned out to be my favorite motion from this ball so I figured I would do the same to see the difference the cover change made.

I should see a really clean look off my hand with a smooth transition and a ridiculous move off the friction down lane.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
During our initial testing of this ball I knew that Pyramid Bowling had something very special with this ball. Not only does it look amazing both on the shelf and going down the lane but they were able to create a totally different motion from the original ball without making drastic changes to the ball. The Pearl cover offers a cleaner look with a sharper backend which most league bowlers tend to like.

As I said earlier this ball gave me a much straighter look through the heads, not reading any friction too early. As it moved into the middle part of the lane I saw it pick up strength setting up for an absolute explosion on the backend. The original Origin was a typical solid reactive ball, in that it revved up a little earlier and gave me a nice predictable motion the entire lane. The Pearl version offers a sharper move with increased angle of entry at the pins.

The Path Origin Pearl will be a great compliment to the Origin or any of the Chosen Path balls as the lanes dry out a bit.

Brunswick Sends Their New Mineralite Bowling Ball Around the World in 1914

Around the world in ??? days or should we say years?

Brunswick is an old Chicago company. They began as a manufacturer of billiards equipment, then branched out into bowling. In 1914 they came up with a new advertising stunt. They were going to send a bowling ball around the world.

People didn’t travel much in 1914–not even 50 miles, let alone around the world. But there were YMCAs in all the British colonies. Brunswick's plan was to ship one of their new Mineralite model balls from one YMCA to another, and the ball would circle the globe that way.

Simple–and great publicity. People would read about the ball as it moved from one place to the next. When it got back to America, Brunswick would then put it on display at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco.

Brunswick Mineralite #391914 left Chicago for San Francisco by train on May 28, 1914, and arrived on the West Coast two days later. After a bowling match at the YMCA, the ball went back across the U.S. to New York.

At New York the ball was put on a ship bound for London. The ball reached London, and there was a ceremony at the YMCA. Next the ball was off to Berlin, for the big international bowling tournament.

Now things got complicated.

While the ball was making its way to Berlin, war broke out between Britain and Germany–a little scrap called World War One. The Brunswick ball arrived in Berlin, and the Germans were suspicious. Most of them had never seen a big, American-style bowling ball. They thought it was a bomb. They sent it back.

Somehow, the ball wound up in Paris. It sat around for a few months, then back it went to London. Since it was obvious the ball couldn't travel through the war zone–it was supposed to go through Berlin, Vienna, and Rome–the Brits put it on a boat for India.
 
In November, the Mineralite got to Bombay. Another YMCA ceremony, and then the ball was put on another boat heading for Sidney, Australia. And that boat sank! The world tour was all over.
 
But no–it turned out that the ball had missed the boat that sank. It was still safe in India!
 
Anyway, the ball eventually got to Australia, and from there it went across the Pacific to San Francisco. And in May 1915, the world-traveling bowling ball was proudly displayed at the Brunswick booth at the Panama-Pacific Exposition.
 
Then the fair closed, and after all that trouble, they lost the ball! It was missing for 19 years. But in 1934, #391914 was discovered in a warehouse, a little dusty but otherwise intact. And then that historic Mineralite finally came home to Chicago, just in time for our Century of Progress fair.
 
Where is that famous bowling ball now? You guessed it–it's disappeared again. And I suspect it won't turn up until someone has another world's fair.
