The combination of the new N'Control PowerBoost coverstock with the medium-RG BVP inverted bell core creates more length in the oil than previous Brunswick balls with medium hook potentials. This exceptional length characteristic helps the Punisher save reaction for the back-end, allowing it to match up well on medium and drier fresh lane conditions. The Punisher is also an excellent go-to ball when the heads have broken down and higher hook potential balls are reacting too soon on the lane.
The new N'Control PowerBoost coverstock gives the Punisher strong back-end recovery with good entry angle into the pocket on medium volume patterns when other balls are arcing up too soon and are flat on the back-end. While most medium hook potential balls struggle when encountering carrydown, the Punisher bites through it and still delivers pin punishing power.
Reaction Characteristics Out of the Box: With its High Gloss Polish finish the BVP Punisher will match up well on medium-dry to dry conditions. When dulled: The BPV Punisher hooking action will increase and its arc will become more even, creating a better match-up for oily lane conditions and help blend the over/under reactions seen on wet/dry lane conditions.
