The Game Breaker 3 Pearl is the latest ball to use the symmetrical Enhanced V2 weight block in Ebonite’s Mid Performance line. This is the same core that has powered all the Game Breaker balls since the Game Breaker 2, after a change to the USBC’s minimum RG specification that forced modifications to the V2 core from the original Game Breaker. This core is wrapped around the GB 12.7 Pearl coverstock, which is the strongest pearlized cover used to date on an Ebonite ball at this price point. This coverstock adds some traction through the oil to a strong downlane reaction, making this ball a legitimate weapon on medium oil conditions. While not quite as angular as the Affinity off the breakpoint, the Game Breaker 3 Pearl covers more total boards on medium length patterns.
You thought the GB2 Phenom Pearl was good? We did too. Until we threw this one. This is the most predictable pearl ball we have made to date and it does it without giving up any down lane motion. The GB3 Pearl is the perfect complement to the GB3 when its time to move in and open your angles up on a variety of patterns. Tournament players are going to love this one.
By switching to the pearl version of our GB 12.7 cover, the GB3 Pearl will provide more length through the front part of the lane while maintaining the strong mid lane and backend continuation that the Gamebreaker series is known for. When the sanded GB3 starts to hook too early, switching to the GB3 Pearl will allow you to stay in your comfort zone.
