The Meanstreak Brawler is the new age version of Brunswick benchmark versatility. I like many, had the pleasure of rolling the original Nexus P+F and found it not only to be strong on oil but smooth and versatile. This ball brings that same smooth transition and versatility to a line already featuring great balls like the first Meanstreak. This ball is a few feet sooner than the Versamax while featuring some of the backend recovery of the meanstreak. The shape of the reaction going down the lane along with some of the bronze in the cover really remind me of the Absolute Inferno. It had a wide range of use and this ball does also. The Brawler is powerful, versatile and not condition specific. When the Maxxed out is too much the Meanstreak Brawler comes into play with more recovery than the Meanstreak or Versamax. This ball has been useful thus far evening out some of the wet/dry transitions on the fresh house conditions I have encountered while still allowing me to chase the pattern left as they breakdown. As long as the front part of the lane holds up this ball is in play and really takes care of business. It has also been useful for reading lanes at the start of the night. The Brawler is smooth, powerful, and consistent. Because of these characteristics, this ball has seen a lot of use already and has found a place in my bag everywhere I go. If your looking for a moderately strong ball that can be used in most situations check out the Meanstreak Brawler and you will be glad you did.
