Additional product information:

Futura features our latest development in coverstock design, giving you the most performance possible in this category. Imbedded inside our GSV-1 coverstock is a new core design based on the proven ancestry of our famed Game Breaker line. The combination of the two will keep you ahead of your competition for the foreseeable future.

The GSV-1 coverstock is the next generation of the most trusted and proven covers in bowling, our GB series. This coverstock formulation has opened many new doors and given Ebonite the possibility to take ball motion to the next level.

The premise of the new Futura HD core design started with one of the brand’s most iconic core shapes in the V2 and Enhanced V2, found in our infamous Game Breaker series. By shifting mass away from the center of the core along the X-axis and going with a higher density core material, we were able to maintain the low RG motion offered in the Game Breaker line. At the same time, this increased the backend continuation with improved overall flare potential.

    This ball needs to be in your FUTURA

    Posted by Dennis Powell on Oct 28th 2019

    The Ebonite Futura uses a proven coverstock in the GSV-1 Hybrid shell that was used previously on the Choice and pairs it with a new weight block, the symmetrical Futura HD (High Density) core. This weight block is modeled after the low RG, higher differential Enhanced V2 core from the Game Breaker line. The RG is the same as the Game Breaker 2 and Game Breaker 3 balls at 2.48″, but the differential has been increased from 0.048″ to 0.053″, resulting in more track flare potential.
    On my heavy oil house shot, the Futura’s 500/2000 Abralon box finish gave it plenty of traction in the midlane and a strong, smooth arc going down the lane. I had the best reaction to the pocket on the fresh. I started on the15 board at the release point, targeted around the second arrow, and used a breakpoint on the eight board downlane. As the lanes started transitioning I was able to move a parallel shift 5 boards and the Futura made the turn to the pocket with ease.

    After having thrown the Futura on a variety of different patterns and centers, I can say without a doubt, this is the strongest ball I've ever thrown. I can easily handle the fresh on the highest volumes and blend the house patterns if they are cliffed. For me, it's an original Scandal on steroids. This ball is a must have for recreational and competitive bowlers alike!
