Video Preview of and compairison for the new ebonite envision Bowling Ball
Ebonite Envision Bowling Ball
We started with a new asymmetric core shape with versatile yet strong numbers and added GSV-X Solid from the Aero line to create incredible ball motion. The lower intermediate core and smoother 2000 Siaair finish make the Envision a ball that is usable on medium to oily conditions and longer into a set because of its versatility and continuation. Bowlers who love the Game Breaker balls will find similarities in the Envision but will use it when needing a stronger overall motion.
MY TAKE ON THE EBONITE ENVISION
Shocked! I was the least excited about this ball and oh man was I wrong. The Envision replaces the Omni in the high-performance line right under the Polaris.
This ball is meant to be a bridge piece from the big asymmetric balls and the strong symmetric’s.
With a strong core with a medium RG, high differential, and medium Intermediate Diff this ball screams smooth. The Envision is nothing flashy, but it surely does shine on a variety of lane conditions. On a fresh house shot this ball can handle the puddle and once the lanes have transitioned it will keep making the corner. The ball clears the fronts pretty well before getting into a heavy roll in the mids, then making a very continuous motion through the pins. I wouldn’t call this ball sharp, but it makes a strong move at the breakpoint. There are only a handful of rocks that look this good from game 1-3, this stands out from the pack.
How does this ball fit in my bag?
The Envision sits right above my Knockout Black & Blue and below my Track Paragon and Columbia 300 Speed. Since drilling it up, its been hard to put this ball down because how easy it is to get lined up and get to striking. This ball is a fairly cleaner through the front part of the lane compared to balls like the GB4 Solid mainly because of the surface prep. Envision comes out of box 500, 2000 Siaair Micro Pad and GB4 comes out of box500,1500 grit. With this ball being priced $20 cheaper than balls like the EVO solid and Paragon, it will get the job done for most bowlers who are bowling on primarily house shots. We have also compared the Envision to the popular Brunswick Knockout Black and Blue. Wow this can easily be a fun 1-2 combo. The Knockout was significantly cleaner than the Envision. The Envision was rounder off of the breakpoint which made it easier read on the fresh and once you migrated left and you wanted a little more pop, the Knockout does exactly that. You have two benchmark pieces that offer bowlers a ton of options. High rev bowlers will be able to use this on heavier volumes and not have to worry about changing balls as quickly, and lower rev players will have a super versatile ball that is very tunable to fit your needs. I believe the Envision will give you a great look at nationals this year and for all other my sport pattern tournaments this upcoming summer Ebonite has hit this one out of the park. You will not be disappointed with picking up this release from Bowlersmart..
