The Ultra Zone brings the new EnMotion reactive coverstock from the Twisted Fury into the Zone line and combines it with the Phantom core.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5"
Mass Bias Position - 2 1/2" right of thumb
CG Placement - 2 1/2" right and 1/2" down from the center of grip
Balance Hole - 1" x 2" hole 7" right of center of grip
Surface Preparation - Box Finish (Rough Buff)
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
This ball was going to be tough for me because I loved my Twisted Fury which has the EnMotion coverstock and I was not a huge fan of my
Blast Zone which was the first ball to incorporate the Phantom weight Block.
I was hoping to see something the complimented my Twisted Fury and would offer a different look when my Twisted either was not enough or was just
going too far past the breakpoint.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Brunswick nailed it. They listened to the comments everyone had about the Twisted Fury and they answered with the Ultra Zone. Most people who I drilled
a Twisted for or saw throw a Twisted all said one thing, "It sometimes goes too long before it starts up and this can get me in trouble from time to time."
The Ultra Zone eliminates that problem by starting up earlier then the Twisted with a more square look at the pocket when it gets to the breakpoint makes
this a perfect combo with the Twisted Fury. We were able to start the night with the ball and we never had to make a ball change. This night of bowling
the pattern held longer then normal so I could use the Ultra Zone all night with a few small moves in as the pattern started to wear down.
As for where this ball fits in my bag, it is actually in front of my Twisted since it starts up a little sooner. When the lanes start off a little drier
then normal I start with my Twisted since it goes so long but on a normal night I actually start with the Ultra and then transition into my Twisted as I
have to move in for the pattern breaking down.
All in all this is another huge success from Brunswick. Look for more great things to come from Brunswick as they introduce the much anticipated Avalanche
series which should compliment their already great line of bowling balls.
