The Ringer is the first affordable performance ball from Brunswick to feature their new cover technology. The ball is new from the inside out and it shows. The new technology in the Ringer allows it to be the cleanest Brunswick ball to date. This ball is several feet longer than the Karma Pearl pink/black and a few boards stronger on the fresh house condition. It is surprisingly strong for a ball at this price point. Where this ball shines is once the condition breaks down. As I moved inside and the pattern broke down the ball retained its length while becoming stronger and stronger at the breakpoint. There was not a place on the lane I felt the Ringer would not come back from. This was also apparent after the Shark pattern I was practicing on continued to breakdown and I picked up the Ringer. The new release was very strong and made it back from left of fifth arrow. Simply put, the Ringer has the strongest change of direction down the lane of any ball I have ever thrown. If you like a skid flip ball motion with great hitting power this is your ball. This ball, in my opinion, may be the surprise release of the year. If your looking for game changing recovery on broken down lane conditions, check out the Ringer and kick your game into high gear.
