If you read our first review of Brunswick's Fury you would have seen us telling you to make sure that you had plenty of oil because this ball hooked and hooked early.
After a little more thought and trying different layouts. bowlingball.com's Keith Spear tested the ball and changed the surface, and found immediate success. Along with some work with Brunswick's Billy Orlikowski we decided to smooth the surface out and bring it up to 2000 grit Abralon and use Brunswick Factory Finish Rough Buff and then use Brunswick Factory Finish High Polish over that. We did that to all of our test balls and saw a dramatic positive change in the ball reaction.
Just in case you did not see our first review here is what we ended up doing. We drilled the Fury with the pin 5 1/2" from the PAP (5 1/8" over 1/8" up) with the cg back under the ring finger. After further discussion about altering the surface we also decided to place a 1" x 2" hole 2 1/4" past the PAP, to help increase flare.
We were so surprised at the difference in ball reaction from our first review that we could not believe what we were seeing. This ball is possibly the best reacting ball we have reviewed in months. Granted the other recent releases are great as well, for example the Total NV but this ball reacted much cleaner for us on our typical house shot.
With the addition of the polish we saw much more skid through the heads with a almost indescribable backend motion. It really looked as if this ball was picking up revolutions from the break point to the pins. The amount of overall hook was equal to other new releases as mentioned earlier but the ball motion was totally different.
We know that the Fury will be the ball that sets the new standard for ball reaction in the bowling industry. This ball comes highly recommended by our testers to bowlers of all skill levels as long as they realize that altering the surface may be a mandatory factor to get the impressive ball reaction that we have seen.
