The all new Ringer from Brunswick.

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5 1/8"

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (500 Siaair, Rough Buff, High Gloss Polish)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I don't know what got into me but when I pulled the Ringer out of the box, it hit me, this ball needs to be drilled with the Rico layout. I think I liked the fact that it would be the Ruocco Rico Ringer, sounds nice :)

Anyway, I had no clue what to expect. It had been years since I used this layout and I knew that this was a new ball motion from Brunswick, with hopes to replace the Karma series eventually. Lets see.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I think I remember throwing a Karma solid and I am pretty sure I did not like it as much as I like this ball. I am pretty sure this thing would out hook balls at price points and performance levels well above it.

It was not just me all of our testers immediately fell in love with this ball reaction. We all had it way stronger then we expected and it was a very pleasant and welcomed surprise. As for mine specifically, the video shows you exactly what I thought. I had the entire right side of the lane with this balls. I could tug it and it would hold, I could miss by an arrow and it would come screaming off the break point.

Literally I could do anything with this ball and it came back with authority every time. I hope you dont judge this ball by the price point because it could be one of the best Brunswick balls to hit the lanes this year.
