The PBA Inferno combines a Low RG core system with Brunswick's popular Activator MAX coverstock to create a high performance ball that matches up to a large range of bowlers' styles and lane conditions.
In the front-ends: Activator MAX coverstock is cleaner through the fronts, saving more reaction for the back-ends. This provides improved hitting power and back-end recovery while reducing sensitivity to breakdown in front-end lane conditions and on lane surfaces that are less than ideal.
In the mid-lane: The Low RG core provides strong mid-lane recovery while its Activator MAX coverstock provides improved traction in the oil with a smoother, more effective reaction off the dry. This combination reduces over/under reaction by making the wet play less wet and the dry, less dry, effectively allowing the bowler to create more area.
On the back-ends: The Activator MAX coverstock is powerful and continuous from the breakpoint through the pins. Improved traction in the oil allows the Inferno to bite through the carry down and aggressively change direction without breaking loose from the lane. The strong rolling characteristics of the Low RG core make this move more readable allowing you to open up the lane.
At the pins: The Activator MAX coverstock creates lower, more active pin action for improved carry.
All of these characteristics become more apparent on less than ideal lane surfaces or as the lane condition breaks down. Forgiveness, recovery and hit are preserved as the lane condition changes allowing you to keep striking longer before needing to change balls.
Out of the Box: With its 600-grit wet sand finish the PBA Inferno will match up well on medium to oily lane conditions.
When shined: Dull surface finishes can sometimes hook too early resulting in reduced backend reaction and hitting power. To increase length, polish the surface with either Brunswickâ€¦trade;s Factory Finish â€?"High Gloss Polishâ€ or â€?"Rough Buffâ€. After polishing your PBA Inferno will go longer in the oil and react stronger to the dry creating an more skid/snap arc with a lower hook potential.
The PBA Inferno can be drilled using the standard drilling techniques developed for two-piece balls, see the included drilling instructions for reaction characteristics and layout details.
