Brunswick is at it again with their latest release, the Evil Siege!

Pin to PAP (4 1/2" x 1/2" Up) - 4"
CG to PAP - 3 3/4"
Mass Bias - 2 3/8" right of centerline
Balance Hole - N/A
Surface Preparation - Left at box finish (4,000 grit micro pad)

What I was looking for in this layout: I used Brunswick's basic asymmetric drilling layout #1 for a medium track bowler on the Evil Siege. By using this layout, I wanted to get the maximum reaction out of the ball as possible.

What I ended up with in this layout: This was the perfect combination of length and backend that I have been looking for. With the pearlized coverstock, I expected the ball to get through the heads easier than the original Siege and store more energy. This held true as tested a few different lines to the pocket.

What surprised me the most was the amount of movement the Evil Siege made at the breakpoint. This ball produced a much more angular reaction than I had expected and was able to recover from the all areas of the lane.

I had a few different lines to the pocket with the Evil Siege, but my favorite line for this ball was getting in and sending it right. I was able to get in between the 4th and 5th arrows at the heads and send the ball out to as far as the 5th board at my breakpoint 45ft down the lane. The Evil Siege had no problems turning the corner and finishing strong at the pocket.

After testing the reaction inside, I decided to see how versatile I could be with it and made a "small" 20 board adjustment with my feet to the right. After taking some hand out of the ball, the Evil Siege worked great from the outside. The Propel Pearl coverstock is very user friendly and allow multiple angles to be played on the lane.

Overall, this is a great addition to the Brunswick line that will give a new look to the pocket. I would recommend using this ball on medium to medium-heavy oil shots for optimal reaction, or as a compliment to the Brunswick Siege when the lanes break down. I'm very excited about this new addition from Brunswick and highly recommend it.

The Evil Siege is just that, evil. It's polished coverstock allows it to go long and be more snap hook on the backends. I tested this ball on a typical house shot using 22 units.

The Evil Siege came of the break point very predictably and was very strong through the pins. Having not bowled in a few weeks due to a wrist injury, I was excited to test this bowling ball and was definitely not disappointed.

Brunswick has been putting together some great bowling balls lately and I know this one will be a winner. Give one a try. Watch our video and let us know what you think.

About the Bowler

Brunswick's newest addition to the Siege line is the Evil Siege which uses Propel Pearl coverstock developed to improve the mid-lane and backend traction of the ball on today's slicker oils and lane surfaces. The Evil Siege is also equipped with the MACE core which has some major benefits to aid in the Evil Siege's performance first a ultra-low RG core system to engage the Propel Pearl coverstock, next a high RG differential to aid in traction through heavy oil, and finally a high RG asymmetric differential to quicken the response time to friction. The MACE core is dynamically the strongest asymmetric core ever produced for a Brunswick ball.

I was looking for a ball to complement my Siege drilled 45x5x70 so I drilled the Evil Seige 45x5 1/2x70 to get more length and a similar ball motion to my original Siege. The Evil Siege performed better than expected by giving me the extra length I was looking for, but still having a quick response to the friction. This ball is not a typical skid-snap ball, although this ball has a great deal of angle on the backend it is still very predictable. I have had this ball out on our fresh house shot as well as a left over shot from the night before. On the fresh this ball was great allowing me to start closer to the track area while giving me more recovery from farther right creating a strong angle to the pocket and explosive pin carry. On the left over shot I was about 15 boards left of were I was on the fresh. The Evil Siege had tremendous recovery and drove through the pins as strong as it did on the fresher shot. This could become my next favorite Brunswick ball.

The Brunswick Evil Siege is a great compliment to the Original Siege. The Evil Siege use the Propel Pearl is a revolutionary coverstock developed by Brunswick to improve the mid-lane and backend traction of the ball on today's slicker oils and lane surfaces.

The Evil Siege was very clean thru the heads, strong revving in the mid-lane and made a strong motion off the pattern.

The Evil Siege is another great ball that Brunswick has released so get yours when it is released.

Brunswick has another great ball with the Evil Siege bowling ball. The Evil Siege will allow you to open up the lane with a lot of pop on the back end. So if you want a ball that will finish hard then you should look no further, this ball is evil pure evil. Grinds through the pins with no mercy.

The Evil Siege is the longer and stronger complement to the successful original Siege. The Evil has plenty of hook and angularity at the breakpoint, consistent with all of the newer performance releases from the Big B. This ball has a slight read of the midlane on our 40 foot house shot and then it drives through the pins with a sharp arc with excellent continuation. It is around 3 and 1 less than my original Siege. This ball is not your typical skid-snap ball, it has plenty of angularity, but it is so predictable it can even be used as a benchmark ball for those bowlers needing some extra hook in their arsenal. The Evil Siege is also an excellent complement to the new C System 3.5 when you need a slightly smoother ball reaction on fresher lane conditions. Big B has created a real winner across the board. It's time to get EVIL!

About the Bowler

I have drilled one these so far. I drilled it 50x5x60 with a P2 hole. I wanted this one to be smoother on the back part of the lane. I was successful. This ball will allow me to be cleaner through the front compared to my Siege with a 65x5x40 drilling. This ball hits very hard. I was loving the pins flying every where my first time throwing it.
I am drilling another one 65x5x25 so it peels off the spot. I will post a review on that one after I throw it a little.
Drill this ball when you need and aggressive ball without that massive hook. Don't get me wrong this ball hooks plenty but will be very useable on any kind of pattern. I's time to get EVIL....Evil Siege is the ball!!!

Evil Seige is More “Good” than “Evil”

Dual Angle Layout: 55 x 5¼ x 40
Pin Location: Above
Hole Location: P2
Axis Point: 5¾

Prior to throwing the Evil Seige, I assumed the ball would be closer to its counterpart (The Seige.) Much to my surprise, the Evil Seige was incredibly clean in the front part of the lane due to its Propel Pearl coverstock. Despite being clean in the fronts, the Evil Seige still maintained a strong mid-lane reaction with a strong, continuous back-end finish. For me, the Evil Seige is a great benchmark ball in my bag and is good for multiple conditions. The Evil Seige is versatile and can be used when I want to go straighter through the fronts, but is still continuous and maintains its carry when I move left of fourth arrow and create more angle. I have used the Evil Seige on multiple conditions, including Pure Evil (38 feet, 1:1 ratio), house shots, and the U.S. Open Pattern. On each condition, the ball remained true to form and performed consistent from pair-to-pair. If you want a new ball and want to be “good,” go with the Evil Seige!

I LOVE this ball. It is everything I wanted it to be. I was extremely surprised at how angular it gets in the back end. The Propel Pearl coverstock does a great job of getting through the heads cleanly and storing massive amounts of energy to unleash on the pins. The combination of the coverstock on the MACE core of the Siege line is really what makes this ball work. The MACE core revs up really strong and, unlike the original Siege, doesn't burn up nearly as much which lets it get down the lane and make the corner better than any ball I have. If ever i have trouble getting a ball back in the backend, I just reach for this one. Brunswick has done it again.

Well, another novice-skilled bowler here , I only have one thing to say about the Evil Siege: If you are looking for consistency, this is the ball you need. After 6 games and getting used to it. I started bowling way better than I was, I bowled my first two games above 200 which I know is not outstanding for many guys here, but for me was a huge improvement, my higher game so far is a 220, when my "regular games were around 130-150 with a straight ball. Highly recommended.

I got this ball around christmas 2011, and I must say I simply Love it. The ball has the length that I need and that crisp back-end motion that hits the pocket hard.
I have been told by several people that I have been bowling great with the ball which is always a plus.

I recommend for bowlers at any level to purchase this ball. It is recommended for heavy oil patterns but adjusts well to medium oil. Since using this ball, in the past 45 days, I have rolled more 200 games than I had in the past two seasons combined. My season average was 171, but I have recently been rolling scores in the 220's, 230's and even 240's as well as countless 180's and 190's. I have even received the league's bowler of the week award for high series. This ball has certainly allowed me to remain competitive with the Elite bowlers of the league. Besides performing well, the ball is a very attractive ball. Fellow bowlers have asked me where I purchased the ball. I am proud to tell them I purchased it from Bowlingball.com at a VERY reasonable price. If I had it all to do over again, I wouldn't change a thing. I am the PROUD owner of the Brunswick "EVIL SIEGE".

AMAZING! I had very high expectations for this ball and it definitely impressed me. I have a fairly high rev rate so I was a little worried that this ball would be fairly difficult to control, but it turns out that even on fairly dry lanes it is very easy to adjust! This ball hooks sooooo smoothly and I absolutely love it!

Evil Siege is my mew weapon in a few years next to the widow venon, i needed a ball that has lots of snap, and work very well in heavy oil and still carry throw the pins,
i have had to incess up my ball speed a bit to get a full carry without a going brooklin, do to i have it drilled as agressive and a counter hole in it.

this ball is very goood for a house shot, and a person that like to play the very out side,

i have learned how to play the outside 5 boards were i love to and it will burry the pocket without a 10 pin, or give me a messanger to get it,

i would have to say its worth the money i paid for it and them some,

it took me a few games to get use to it, but have got the snap i want from the ball, this is also my first brunswick ball i have ever owned and probley will get anther one someday,

About the Bowler

This ball was advertised as a medium heavy to heavy oil ball for fresh oil.I am a medium speed tweener and drilled the ball with a strong 4 by 4 pattern. This ball had trouble turning the corner from an inside line on the fresh shot but was a little jumpy going up the boards. As the lanes changed to drier heads and carry down, this ball became better and better. I can use this ball second and third game with minor moves. This ball might work for crankers on the fresh shot, but for me it's Virtual Gravity the first game and Evil Seige after that. I am 60 years old and have been bowling 35 years. My average is 210 on synthetic and 198 on wood. T.T.

While this ball is not as agressive as I thought it should be given past reviews and videos of this ball in action, I do still love it and it fits well with my Anarchy from Storm. This ball begins to roll up a little sooner than the Anarchy will. This ball seems to bite a little better in heavy oil, thus getting into its roll a little sooner. Granted this is with an OOB finish so I'm sure it would have a little more length if I were to polish the ball.

With the layout I have on this ball I have taken out a lot of the skid/flip reaction and tamed it down to a smooth arc. Which does require me to keep it in the heavy concentration of oil so that it doesn't overreact or burn up all its energy to quickly. All in all though for the first Brunswick ball I've owned I've been very pleased and impressed with its hitting power.

About the Bowler

I am a stroker (185 avg.) and I am not nearly as impressed with the Evil Siege as most of the reviewers. The ball reads at the midlane and starts to make a move, but the cover wants to keep pushing it down the lane. The result is what I perceive to be a loss of energy when it does make its final move to the pocket. E.g., it's a little "jerky." I leave quite a bit of 10 pins playing inside and it's too aggressive on all but the oiliest conditions to play up the lanes.

I bought the Evil Siege with an Avalanche Slide and as you will read in my Avalanche review my intent was to use the Siege until the lanes started breaking down and switch to the Avalanche. The Siege now just sits in my bag. It took three weeks for me to get over the fact I liked the "affordable ball" much better and genuinely think it hits harder and is more versatile.

I think I may try redrilling my Evil Siege with a different pin and mb placement to see if that does the trick.

Reading the reviews on this ball, it appeared it would be a good heavy oil ball at a good price. But after taking it to a pro shop for drilling, the operator said it's a medium oil ball which I have 3 or 4 already. And then using it I'm finding that to be the fact. I'm finding that prices and response is good at bowlingball.com but you cannot rely on the opinions of the reviews. I have spent way too much money on balls that are supposed to be a certain type but end up not being that type of ball. If I had taken the deal at my pro shop instead I would put out a little more to begin with but end up with the type of ball I need for a given oil pattern.

The Brunswick Evil Siege is a ball with a strong coverstock designed for heavy oil. However, I found that it might not be strong enough for some of the heavy lane conditions that I encounter during my sport leauge.

I use the ball on more medium-heavy oil patterns with the pin above both my fingers. Althoe I wanted something specificly for heavy oil, I can still get alot of overall hook potential with a 500 grit finish.

Using it on the slick, wet lanes, I don't think it would fully satisfy me. But making a few simple adjustments, it really makes those pins fly!

In concluson, the Brunswick Evil Siege is a ball that I would definately recommend to any bowler looking to play medium-heavy oil patterns, looking for massive pin action, and looking for a ball that will \"siege\" the opponet!!!!

Outstanding performance. This ball provides the grip on the lane I've needed to achieve a solid hook. Also, as little as it matters to performance, I love the way the ball looks both in the rack and flying down the lane. My team captain was impressed by the way the ball performs as well. Definitely a good investment for a league bowler.

This ball is the truth. My Evil Siege has paid for itself after I won $250 in a tournament. My first game in league with it was a 256 which was 1 pin more than my previous sanctioned high game. It saves energy for the back end and is really smooth. The reason I bought it in the first place was because I saw how smooth it was in the videos by the bowlingball.com staff and Billy O. It's my benchmark ball to see how the lanes are playing and the carry is very awesome. I don't get many messengers at all, but I have seen scouts roll pins over and I've seen how this ball shakes up light hits. It's best to use really on medium-heavy oil rather than heavy oil. Anything past 41 feet in length you may need to put a surface on it. I recommend you drilling this ball with a pin-down layout so you can play the gutter without overreacting to friction to get the best entry angle to the pocket.

Great Ball. I do not have a natural hook at all. I had my ball drilled simple asymetrical drilling layout for length and it has help me to put about an 8 board hook an my ball. In addition I started out using this ball I had an 110 average and over the last 4 weeks i have consitently bowled in the 140-150 range toping out with an 218... have not bowled enough game to bring up my average a lot but i have add about 30-40 pins to my game. I would recommend this ball to beginers learning the lanes an experienced bowlers who woul like and edge.

Unlike some other balls the Evil Seige seemed to need a few games to get rolling well but when it did. WOW. Every game I bowl with it, It seems to come into it's own more and more. By game five it was alot more consistant 229 and game 6 280. If it wasn't for a pesky 7 pin in the 2nd I would have had another perfect game. Don't think it will be long before I get one with it though. Best carrying ball I've bowled with. Flush pocket clears 10 almost everytime. Have only left 1 10 pin in the first 7 games.

What I really like about the Evil Siege is how great the ball is for going
up the lane. I feel for a tweener or stroker this ball is best used out
side the third arrow. The power player can use the ball playing in to out a
little better than the rest because of there high rev rates to get the ball
to change direction harder.
I feel adding this ball to your arsenal is a huge advantage. This is my
seven iron and can give me a real read on the part of the lane I should be
playing.
The best PBA patterns for this ball are Viper and Cheetah. I hope you enjoy
the ball as much as I do.

About the Bowler

I recently went to the USBC nationals in Reno Nevada and did very well with this ball. I used this ball during team event and was very surprised how well it did on on the fresh oil. I came back the next day and used it for doubles and singles an overall bowled pretty well. I shot 1838 for all events.

Great ball, it is a very forgiving ball and it is powerful when it hits the pins. I can throw this ball from many angles and it finds the pocket. Im not a league bowler, im just a casual one, i go once or twice a week with friends and this is a must for your arsenal if you desire awesome ball reaction and amazing pin carry.

Your competition wont even know what hit them! WOW! Very versatile bowling ball on all ends of the spectrum. Easy to manipulate off the hand, hits like a truck, nothing short of another phenomenal ball released by Brunswick!!! With the propel pearl coverstock on this ball, not to many people stand a chance unless they have one as well. If you don’t have an evil siege, go to your nearest pro shop and get one immediately!!!

My evil seige has a nice consistant roll to the pocket, it doesn't jump on the backend. I would recommend this ball to anyone who likes some control over the amount of hook we get.

Ball Name - Evil Siege

Bowler Specs

Description - The Evil Siege introduces Propel Pearl Coverstock. Along with the MACE core from the orignal Siege, The Evil Siege will give you a go-to option when the lanes start to break down and your Siege hooks to early.

Drilling - I drilled this ball using the dual angle layout technique 60 x 5 x 45 with a small weight hole on the axis.

Reaction - This ball was very easy to control. Since I polished the cover, it was simply a breeze. Recovery was never an issue as this ball came off the spot quickly and consistently every time. The hits kept the pins low with very little deflection.

Overall - The Evil Siege will be a very controllable and consistently reacting ball time after time. Another winner from Brunswick.

Thanks goes out to Billy O, new product rep Brian Bever and all the good folks at Brunswick.

Description - The Wild Card introduces Connexion Solid Coverstock to the Wild Series of bowling balls. This coverstock along with the Paragon Core is destined to be another success.

Drilling - This ball is drilled 4 x 5 with not weight hold. This drilling will give the look of a basic "over the label" drilling.

Reaction - The ball is exactly what I expected. Clean thru the fronts, easy pick up in the midlane, and a smooth continuous arc on the backend. This ball's reaction helps me keep control of the pocket and does not over react at any time.

Overall - I like this ball and will drill another with a stronger drill and different coverstock.

Thank you to Billy O, new product rep Brian Bever, and all the good folks of Brunswick.

About the Bowler

Evil yes, Nasty Yes, Makes the pins shutter with fear, YES. Drilled out 4.5x5x6. I needed a ball for heavy oil, more like a swamp. You see, I bowl early on Sunday mornings after our lanes go thru a fresh oil lay upon closing on Saturday nite. THS with approx 25+ units, yeh thick. 90% of the time this equates to a lake on the lanes. After having a wrist injury my Dr. whom I bowl with, recommended a 14 pounder instead of my 15+ pounders. I have a AMF Cobra (remember that ball and your showing your age) as my spare roller, a 2001 El Nino, a XXX Factor and my fave Storm Fast for when the lanes break down below a medium shot, that is until I got a handle on this Evil Seige. It goes longer than I expected, in fact I was scared the first few throws that it wouldn't ever snap back, but was I wrong. It does so, very smoothly, and yet it carries a whole lot of attitude making its break for the pocket. It scared me until I gained the confidence that no matter what IT WILL TURN and turn hard, kinda like that Nike symbol. If you are a down and in bowler you will want to drill this with less agressiveness than I have. I'm have between a tweener and cranker relese. This agressive drill rolls long in the swamp and when it hits dry, BAM the cut back is huge yet predictable and, well, as I said earlier, smooth. As it screams to the pocket the pins literally fall over before the ball even gets there. OK a little humor there. Seriously, this ball has it goin on. My FAST was the first roller, though it's more a medium oil ball, NOW, the Evil Seige rolls out early from the bag and usually stays til the end. Once the lanes break down I move a little to the right and smack it in again. The versatility of being able to adjust to the lane conditions has always been my forte. I decrease or increase ball speed and revs to adjust instead of changing balls. I say this because some balls really need to go back in the bag when lanes change, not the Evil, it takes the adjustments and rolls on to victory. Though I did try to roll it in a desert and it was just no good, I layed it down on the fifth board from the right and took out the 7 pin or the gutter. Definitely NOT for dry lanes. I had a high series of 718, with the FAST but after 3 weeks with this Evil Wicked Mean and Nasty Seige, I just bowled a 753 set. I am so excited about an upcoming tournament I plan on using this ball in. I expected tight competition, but now, really, I think I have a great advantage as we will play a ton of games on the lanes from fresh oil thru breakdown and I don't think they strip the lanes between rounds. Doesn't matter, so far the Evil seige seems to take it all in stride and hits hard with attitude and vengeance and yet a style and grace I haven't ssen since??? can you say Darth Vader...LOL

The Evil Siege is one of the best rolling Brunswick balls I have seen since the Absolute Inferno. We drilled one for a UCF collegiate bowler 55x5x60, pin ended up being in the middle finger. What a great rolling ball this is! Very clean through the fronts with a strong midlane read that is highly controllable. After we drilled it he went out on the lanes and threw the first 11 to shoot 299. The roll this ball delivers is very versatile and can be used for many different types of players.

About the Bowler

Evil Siege...

I am a left handed cranker. My PAP is 5 1/4" x 1" up. My ball speed is medium/high and my league average is 235+.

Pin to PAP: 2 1/4"
CG to PAP: 5"
Mass Bias: 1 1/2" right of center
NO balance hole
Surface: out of box

I was looking for a strong continuous arc out of this ball and to tame it down to play the left hand side of the lane.

What I got was unbelievable, the Evil Siege, with this layout, makes a strong continuous arc to the pocket and destroys the pins. It clears the heads easily and reads the mid-lane wonderfully.

I have already shot two 800's with this ball in 3 weeks: 269 - 300 - 264: 833 (left an 8 pin and 10 pin in the first game and a 6-8 in the 3rd game) the very first time I used it and shot an 805 Wed night(2/3) 268 - 279 - 258.

This ball is absolutely EVIL!!! I am extremely excited about this ball and would recommend to anyone.

About the Bowler

After drilling my second one of these, I have thrown it enough to post a review on it. I drilled this one exactly like one of my Siege. I drilled it 65x5x25. I wanted this one for when patterns open up and this is what I got done. It is about 4 and 2 weaker with more angularity then the Siege. Compared to the C System 3.5 drilled 70x5x40 it is longer and about the same down lane motion but overall hook is about 5 and 3 less. Compared to a C System 2.5 drilled 55x5 1/2x40, it is longer and a little more angle but less overall hook but not much.
Overall this will be a great tourney piece as well as THS ball.
Time to be Evil...Evil Siege

About the Bowler

Everyone that loves a ball to hook in the mid-lane and a hard snap on the backends will love this ball. I drilled my first one with pin up and geez this ball just doesn't stop hooking. A very heavy rolling ball but very clean in the front. I used several different hand positions and 5 out of 6 stuck at all area's on the lane. The Evil Siege at Del-Mar lanes in Houston, Tx., I could not use it outside of 15. But, I moved all the way inside to the 5th arrow and it still kept driving through the pin deck. I then went to Max Bowl North and on their THS it murdered to pins from just outside the 15 to inside the 4th arrow before it stopped reacting. But with a slower speed and more revs I moved inside to the 5th arrow I could get the same pin action as what I was getting playing the track. When your Siege is hooking too much make a ball change to the Evil Siege. You can't go wrong with this ball in your bag...!
