Christina Lamoureux – RadiGal breaks down the new Track Proof Hybrid bowling ball
This video is one of eight short reviews using Brunswick brands demo balls from BowlersMart in Henderson, NV. This is not a hook the whole lane or strike all the time video, but rather what an average bowler sees in ball motion on different parts of the lane when using the Track Proof Hybrid. Since these are demo balls, everything has a neutral drilling and is at box surface and/or has a touch of lane shine on it already.
The Proof Hybrid is designed to fill the gap between the Proof Solid and Proof Pearl. I would be most comfortable using this ball on medium oil conditions, or lanes that are starting to transition and dry out. Compared to the Proof Solid, I found the Hybrid to go a touch longer and be a little more angular. I have not had the opportunity to throw the Proof Pearl, but from what I see the Pearl will provide additional length and a sharper backend motion than the Hybrid. The Proof Hybrid is something I would switch to after the Proof Solid starts picking up too soon, or when I am looking for something that is a bit quicker off the spot, which tends to be the difference of whether I carry a ten pin or not. I felt very comfortable moving left with this ball and sending it into the friction. It was not as ideal for playing a tighter inside line as the Proof Solid is for me, since my average rev rate was not capable of making it turn the corner in the oil. Those that have watched my videos know that I have a lower ball speed that can sometimes result in the ball being jumpy on the backend. The hybrid cover of this ball ensured that I did not have to worry about that at all. If you are comfortable with keeping your angles open, this ball will be a great addition to your arsenal.
Track Proof Hybrid bowling ball
The Proof Solid and Proof Pearl have been excellent performing balls on the lanes for Track fans this last year; the response to these two has been great from every type of bowler. The Proof Hybrid combines the best elements of these two successful balls into one great ball. The Proof Hybrid might be the only ball that will get Track fans to put their original Proof balls down.
