What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Well how do describe what you are looking for from one of the greatest balls of all time? The Karma is the rebirth of the original Danger Zone! The Danger Zone was one of the best balls ever made and really changed the standard for ball reaction across the entire world.

I am very excited to throw the Karma solid since I absolutely loved the Danger Zone back in the day. We kept the layouts really simple on this and the Karma Pearl. Pin above ring finger and cg kicked out just a little from the center of grip.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
The Karma delivered on all levels for me. After throwing a few shots with the ball I realized that I did not clearly remember the ball motion of the Danger Zone just that it was good and I liked it. There have been so many between the original release and the release of the Karma that I could only say this was a solid ball motion.

The reactive cover handled the lanes perfect with just enough movement in the midlane and a strong not over aggressive motion off the breakpoint. The Karma showed me tons of versatility allowing me to move around on the lane and get a good motion from multiple parts of the lane. Compared to some of the other balls we have thrown in this performance level and price point the Karma will blow them out of the water.

Brunswick has picked a winner to replace the Avalanche series and using the Danger Zone was a great call. Bowlers of all skill levels will agree the Karma is a great way to bring back the Danger Zone.
