What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

I have enjoyed both Nirvana releases up to this point. I really like the way the core sets up before the roll phaze. I was expecting more hook from the Absolute with an earlier reaction.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

I was correct about the Absolute Nirvana hooking earlier than the original Nirvana. The lower grit finish definitely reads the lane faster which will be great on heavy oil conditions.

What I wasn't expecting though was how much energy this ball had left at the pins, even on our THS testing pattern. This ball didn't burn up at all for me and that's unusual for such a strong ball.

Speaking of that, this ball is VERY strong. I would say one of the 5-10 strongest balls I've ever thrown. It's probably closer to #1 than #10.

There isn't a bowler that couldn't benefit from having this ball in their bag. Aside from super rev dominant bowlers, you're going to find a lot of uses for the Absolute Nirvana. Not to mention, this ball is great polished, which makes it even more versatile.

Brunswick is making as good of stuff as anyone out there right now, and the Absolute Nirvana is near the top of the list!

Brunswick has another strong ball in the Nirvana line. Absolute has a matte finish with a new coverstock ECS the strongest cover Brunswick has ever made. Absolute Nirvana will be the ball for heavy oil also very easy to change cover for more length.

COMMENT
Likes: Oveall hook and strength
Dislikes: non
The Absolute Nirvana is clearly the strongest ball in the Brunswick line. It appears to somehow retain more energy while hooking just as soon as the original. The Absolute is about 2 and 1 stronger than the original Nirvana and 4 and 2 stronger than the Ultimate Nirvana.. The ECS Hook coverstock grips the lane early and often. This ball recovers well from out of bounds areas and finishes well at the pins. If you are looking for help getting the ball to hook soon enough or are encountering heavier volumes of oil, this ball is the answer!

75X5X35 pin up. 16.5mph 400-450 rev. The intention was to drill this weak. This ball is still a monster and is VERY continuous. It just keeps hooking and its hard! Comparing to my ultimate nirvana which has been plugged to give me the exact same layout. The ultimate is more angular where the absolute is more continuous. I get to play in the same area of the lane from 35 to 10-12. When i miss with the absolute only getting it out to 15 or 20 the ball still carries the pocket. It is able to turn in the heavier oil. The ultimate with the same kind of miss leaves me flat 10's or weak 7's

Are you looking for hook? Brunswick's Absolute Nirvana has it! On heavier oil conditions the Nirvana Ultra Low RG core, combined with Brunswick's ECS Hook coverstock gets this ball to pick up strong in the midlane and continue to drive strong through the pins.
I love how my original Nirvana allowed me to open up the lane. It was strong, continuous, and predictable. Now I have everything I liked about the original, with more overall hook! The Absolute Nirvana allows me to move into the puddle on general house conditions and just throw it towards the friction. I can trust that the ball will pick up and do the rest. As a bonus, I shot 300 with mine the second week I threw it in league! Get your Absolute Nirvana today.

WOW! I've never had such a strong solid asymetrical ball that had the continuation and drive that this ball has. Only time I've ever been able to use the same ball on a 47ft sport shot and turn around and use it the next night on a 40ft typical house shot. Reads the pattern very well and man this thing and make the corner on a house shot. I threw a couple that missed way outside to the dry on a house shot that shouldve been no chance for something this strong and it still screamed back with authority. hitting power is unmatched to me. Amazing ball and I'll be shocked if i dont have 3 or 4 of these by the time the years over
