Ball specs:

15lb. 4oz.
2.80 top weight
4” pin

Drilling Specs: 45 X 5 X 70. This places the pin below the center of my bridge. CG just above the thumb hole and MB approx. 3” left of the thumb. No weight hole.

Brunswick has raised the RG of the MACE core to move the breakpoint further down lane and quicken the response time to friction. The coverstock is a enhanced version of Propel which is called Propel X. The pore structure has been enhanced to be more consistent and versatile on a wider variety of lane conditions.
The previous two offerings in the Siege line were only useful to me on limited conditions that I encountered and therefore I was never able to get much use from them. On the flip side, I drilled numerous Siege’s for customers that loved the balls, and would be the first ball out of their bag on many conditions. That being said, since drilling the Wicked Siege for myself this past Friday, I cannot put this ball away, nor have I had to put it away. I tested the ball out quickly in my home house immediately after drilling it. After about 8 shots the ball was rolling so beautifully I just wanted to keep rolling it to see what else it could do and was almost late getting to league that night. I did find in league that I needed to go to my 4.5 for the best carry and entry angle as I have been using it most successfully at that particular house. The Wicked Siege had an earlier breakpoint than the 4.5 and carry was adversely affected on the pattern. A slight surface adjustment is all that would be needed to correct the carry issue.
Sunday was another story. No surface adjustment needed here. I was able to use the Wicked Siege from game one all the way through until we were finished 8 games later. The ball read the lane perfectly and back end motion was continuous and predictable shot after shot. Even in the 8th game getting the ball through the heads was not a problem. No carry issues at all.
This Wicked Siege is just another outstanding and versatile ball in the current Brunswick line. If you didn’t get much use from a previous Siege release because ball motion was a bit too smooth or maybe you expected more movement on the back end, give this one a try. Kudos to the design and testing crew at Brunswick on this ball. Keep up the great work.
