Crown Factory Compound
Ready to vaporize the pins? This vintage release is an extremely versatile pin up or down! I've personally seen great success with this ball when you need a little more kick down lane off the pattern.
This ball is a must have. The vintage vapor zone offers more hitting power than before! With the new dynamicore technology, this ball will come back from any angle with more hitting power. Wether you play straighter up the lanes, or you hook the lanes this ball will work for you! I found myself finding this ball a little too clean in the front part of the lane, and slowing down in the back part with its out of box. Put 2000 on it, and wow! This balls hitting power is outrageous.

The Vintage Vapor Zone is a blast from the past with some upgraded technology. It takes that asymmetric Danger Zone core shape everyone loved and pairs it with an updated cover for today’s lane conditions. It has been awhile since I have thrown the original Vapor but the first thing I noticed with this ball is how long it goes. The Vintage Vapor Zone gets great length for an asymmetrical ball. With the layout I chose it allows me to play closer to the dry on some of the fresher conditions. This ball will allow you to use the more powerful core in situations where you would normally need a lower flaring symmetrical ball. I can also see myself drilling another Vapor with a quicker response layout for playing deeper inside and covering more boards. With the correct surface prep this ball will get enough length to play wherever there is some friction. As far as total hook goes, I have this one right on top of my Vintage Inferno with more length and recovery down the lane. If you loved the Original Vapor Zone you will like this one. Be sure to check out the improved length and recovery of the new Vintage Vapor Zone.
Let’s start with the obvious, this ball is outright sexy. In my opinion the best looking ball I’ve seen to date. Luckily it doesn’t stop there. This ball rolls prettier than it looks. This is an assymetrical monster that glides through the front with a down lane recovery that will keep you doing double takes. The Dynamicore technology gives you that extra pop through the pins like a stick of dynamite. There are videos popping up everywhere so if you don’t believe me check for yourself. The original Vapor was something special, but this one might just prove to be legendary.
The Vintage Vapor Zone has always been one of brunswick's biggest sellers from the “good old days”. The problem with the good old days is that the amount and types of oil have changed so much that you can never recapture that ball motion years later. That is, until today.
Drilled at 70 x 3 3/4” x 20, the Vapor Zone we received was a skid / flip machine. It has been a while since we've seen something THIS clean that still slows down and hooks on a dime down lane. Add in that DYNAMICORE and you have a ball that moves and hits like the old Vapor, but with SO MUCH MORE performance. If you loved the Vapor zone, or want a ball that is going to corner, this “old ball” has some incredible new tricks.
Wow this ball is great. I get very easy length with a strong angular back end motion. When moving in the ball is still able to make the turn with enough energy to carry the corner pins. Overall it has been a very versatile ball for multiple lines to the pocket.
