Brunswick Zenith Bowling Ball Features:
The Brunswick Zenith features a new core and once again builds on the famed Activator coverstock family. The asymmetrical Zenith weight block is built to rev up early with its low RG and high differential. It is paired with the AXH (Activator Xtreme Hook) coverstock, which is a reactive solid formulation. Coming out of the box at a rough 500/1000 SiaAir finish, this ball was designed to grab the lane early and create hook where it might not otherwise be found.
Brunswick is excited to launch a new Pro-Performance ball, the Zenith. Brunswick’s top-end balls always push the limits of extreme hook with excellent continuation, and the Zenith is all of that. Combining the new Zenith core and the A. X. H. (Activator Xtreme Hook) cover produces incredible ball motion on lanes with some volume and for bowlers that need a little help getting the ball started. If you like hook in a box and high scores, the Zenith won’t disappoint.

If you like hook in a box a high scores then the Zenith won’t disappoint. This new core and cover produce incredible ball motion on higher volumes. Even as they begin to transition this ball just keeps on trucking through the pins.

Just a bit of a WOW factor here folks. Threw the Zenith on the 45′ Dragon Patten. With the AXH(Activator Extreme Hook) I was able to keep the ball in front of me and generate a solid line to the pocket. Even by keeping the angles tight and in on this long pattern, the New Brunswick Zenith had nothing short of pure power as it entered the pin deck. A Great Ball for those highly oiled conditions

The Zenith just flat out hooks! Its a very strong and controllable high end ball that is great for heavier oil conditions. Comparing the Zenith to the Prism Warp, I would say it is a good 4-5 boards stronger. If you need a ball to combat those heavier oil conditions, the Zenith would be a perfect option
Holy hook in a box! The first 18 games out of the box, I averaged 239.6 ! This is three different leagues, two different houses. It reminds me a lot of the original kingpins, but with a little more teeth, and more length! A definite must have if you want a big ball that won’t burn up, and has amazing pop in the back ! Don’t be afraid of this one! 65 x 4 1/2 x 35

Absolute hook in a box! This is the strongest ball I have ever thrown! If you have a lower rev rate and are looking for something that will let you play farther inside, look no further. The Zenith is also great at blending out those super wet/dry house shot patterns, without sacrificing any energy, allowing you to get those pesky corner pins down more often! This is one of those balls that travels everywhere with me!
The Zenith is the strongest ball in the Brunswick lineup. Compared to the Previous Prism Solid ,it is a touch longer and has better recovery at the breakpoint. With a weaker and smoother transitioning layout, this ball still managed to cover board and hit well from all across the lane. The Zenith hits the middle part of the lane in the perfect spot to maximize its hook potential without burning up. This one will come out of the bag on slicker house conditions and slicker tournament conditions. I could see it being an everyday ball for speed dominant bowlers. If you are looking for early hook and a versatile strong motion, the Zenith is your ball.

The Zenith has the Zenith core with the A.X.H. (Activator Xtreme Hook) solid cover stock. The layout I used was 50 x 6 x 30. The Zenith is one of the strongest balls in the Brunswick line, if not the strongest. I am usually not a fan of solid/duller cover stocks as I have a higher than normal ball speed and there is not enough oil in my area for such balls but this ball has surprised me. I have been using this ball a lot in our challenge pattern league which is bowled on Kegel Tungsten. Tungsten is 39 feet in length with a volume of 25.60ML with a ratio of 1:6. I was pleasantly surprised how well this ball performs on this pattern. It clears the fronts very well and is extremely smooth and continuous on the back end. Even when I have to go more left to right on this pattern the ball does not quit. We have a lot of people throwing Urethane on this pattern so when the carry-down starts I am able to move right without the ball over-hooking. The Zenith is best suited for high volume oil patterns or shorter patterns that have a decent amount of oil. The Zenith could also work on a house shot for the speed dominant bowler or the bowler who doesn’t have a lot of rev’s and need a ball to hook.

This may be the strongest ball I’ve ever thrown. If you are looking for a ball that will really dig in on the heavier oil patterns the Zenith is definitely the ball you are looking for. Surprisingly enough I’m even able to start with it during league and usually get about 12 to 15 frames out of it before I need to either make a big jump left or ball down. The Zenith also offers Brunswick’s most innovative technologies with both Dymanicore and DOT.

This is one of my favorite heavy oil balls to start with, even with the layout provided. The ball has a overall smooth reaction and can hook in the oil on pulled shots and still has enough recovery from the outside on some pushed shots. There is a lot of versatility with this ball of medium to heavy oil patterns.

The Zenith is the first ball for me that really reacts in Heavy Oil, the A. X. H. (Activator Xtreme Hook) cover produces incredible ball motion . layout is 55×4/34×35. If your looking for a heavy oil ball I would suggest the Zenith Solid. and the Pearl to compliment it

Zenith Solid is definitely one of my favorite balls and first one out of my bag on the heavier volume oil conditions. I have also had alot of success on medium house shots, definitely have to stand left and keep a tight line to the pocket in the oil! Recently for the house pattern with alot of friction I had to polish as it definitely got alot of length down lane and really drove through the pin deck! This ball is very versatile and can be used on multiple oil patterns and a variety of styles and rev rates… This ball will definitely be great for house shot but also gonna be a great tournament ball to have in your bag… I definitely recommend this ball to any brunswick fans and will have continued use of it for many future tournaments!
