The greats all have something about them. The "IT" factor. Swagger. Mojo. Find yours with the Brunswick Aura bowling ball!

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 4 1/2"
Dual Angle Layout - 55* x 4 1/2" x 65*
Balance Hole - n/a

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (500 Siaair; Rough Buff)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
The all new Aura was supposed to bring in a new ball motion for Brunswick. Offering outstanding length with a super quick response to friction down lane.

I used a fairly strong layout on this ball. With the thought that Brunswick was trying to get more of a long and strong ball motion I wanted to see what it could really do. With the 4 1/2" pin from PAP below my fingers I expected to see the ball come off my hand strong and read the mid lanes really good allowing the ball to set up nicely on the back end and pop off the break point.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
So I know that every ball that comes out from a manufacturer is supposed to be the greatest thing since the last ball they released. I understand that as bowlers we are always saying what else can they do to the balls to make then react any better then they already do.

The answer to that question is what you see with the Aura. Brunswick has completely changed their reaction profile and it is really good.

Off my hand the Aura was one of those balls that I felt like I could do anything with. From the first shot I threw I was able to create a ton of area.

It performed exactly how Brunswick said it would. It was strong but smooth in the heads with a really strong transition in the mid lanes and the strongest most consistent reaction I have seen from Brunswick off the break point. The fact that Brunswick has made this transformation over the last couple of years brings them right back to the forefront of the ball motion game and you need to look at this ball.

Later on in the night I threw this ball some more and as you can tell by our videos there is a wall left of the lane we use. I literally ran out of room left with this ball. I wanted to see where I could get it back from and I had to stop when I was bumped up against the wall. It is crazy.
