COMMENTS

Brunswick was looking for a gamechanger with the release of the new Nexxxus and they have it!!!! Typically pearl polished type of bowling balls provide bowlers with lots of length and recovery down lane but only do so on transitions and or drier lane conditions. This ball redefines what that kind of pearl ball is capable as it gives a strong backend motion on fresher lane conditions. The Nexxxus fits in between the the Nexus Solid and the Nexus Pearl respectively. It is 2 and 1 straighter than the solid and 4 and 2 stronger than the pearl on the 41 foot house condition I tested it on. The ball was just flat out impressive on our sports league when it came time for Shark and the US Open patterns. I was able to shoot 600+ on both patterns and as long as I continued to chase the breakpoint in and down the lane the ball kept coming back and taking em down. Pearl balls with a smoother, shinier surface also typically are not very versatile for most bowlers. They usually are just reserved for that stand left throw right occasion. This ball has a versatility to it that I have never had or witnessed in a longer stronger pearl ball. If I change rotations it is like having two completely different bowling balls. With less axis rotation it will roll and set into the pocket, but if I change and go around the ball at the release it will boomerang as much as I want it to. It also will take many different spots in the bag with surface changes. At 1500 Siaair it will hook early on a pattern with more volume and with shine it will play on a shorter thinner pattern after breakdown. The Nexus technology has completely redefined what a long and strong ball will do. It is like having 3 balls in one. If you can vary your surfaces with this ball your options are endless. Long and strong has been redefined as long, strong, and extremely versatile. The new king of the pearls has arrived: the Nexxxus!!!! If you haven't had a good look at Brunswick lately do your bowling scores a favor and check out the performance and versatility of the new technology.
