    The Hero is the latest symmetrical cored Brunswick Ball to use the DOT technology. It is an earlier version of the Fearless with the same core. The stronger coverstock gets this ball started earlier and allows me to use it on the fresher conditions where more oil is present. It gets good enough length to slow down when coming out of the oil but does not over react to the friction. It also seems to retain energy quite well. This one fits in between the Fearless and Vintage Vapor Zone for me as far as total hook. It is a bit earlier a the breakpoint than both of the above balls. I found it likes to be thrown from inside of the oil right into the friction. It is very good on wet/dry conditions as well. This will the first ball out of the bag for bowlers looking for an angular but predictable reaction across a variety of medium conditions. This one is a great value for most bowlers.

    Benchmark ball

    The new Brunswick Hero. For me the hero is your typical benchmark ball. I love how the ball smooth and so controllable at the break. i like seeing pins scatter and keeping the pins lower to maximize pin carry. It never gets old seeing the 10 pin get smacked silly by a messenger, which I’ve seen a lot with this ball. With the smoothness of this ball, you had in dynamicore and you have a masterpiece. After all everyone needs a HERO!

    A True HERO

    Posted by Todd Allred on Aug 6th 2019

    This ball really is a Hero. A brilliant benchmark ball with the latest and greatest technology. It’s got DOT, Dynamicore a four year limited warranty and amazing performance. The activator plus 2.0 pearl cover stock glides effortlessly through the front of the lanes and then the Contra Core takes over for a strong mid lane motion with a continuous motion through the pins. The HERO can be thrown on almost anything and the shell is easily altered to for optimal performance. I love love love this ball and I know you will too.
