Brunswick Anaconda Bowling Ball

(2 reviews) Write a Review
Activator® Plus Coverstock The Anaconda is the first ball with Activator Plus coverstock available at the Advanced Performance price point. Activator Plus is a more aggressive version of the original Activator coverstock formulation that maintains the durability and longevity of ball reaction that are characteristic of the Activator coverstock family. The rough-buff, pearlized version of Activator Plus coverstock used on the Anaconda creates more traction in the oil, increasing the ball’s midlane and back-end hooking action, while still being clean through the front-end. Ultra Low RG Inferno Core The Anaconda uses an updated version of the Original Inferno core. The Ultra Low RG Inferno core revs quickly providing mid-lane traction control with a strong predictable back-end motion. Ball Motion With its Rough Buff finish, the Anaconda will rev quickly in the mid-lane with a strong continuous back-end reaction that matches up on medium to medium-oily lane conditions for a wide range of bowling styles. Reaction Setup The Anaconda can be drilled using the standard drilling techniques developed for symmetric bowling balls. Lightweight Engineering The unique core shape of each Brunswick ball is used for weights from 14 to 16 pounds. This approach to lightweight ball engineering provides bowlers with consistent ball reaction characteristics across this weight range. The same drilling instructions can be used for 12- and 13-pound balls. This is because Brunswick uses a generic core shape with an RG differential that is close enough to the 14-16 pound shape.

    I drilled this one 35X4 5/8V70 with a low hole. The roll and continuation is great. You won't have a problem getting it thru the fronts but you do need the friction to ensure the recovery on the back end. The large VAL angle slows down the response to the friction so you don't want to cover many boards with this drilling. The original box finish did not work well for me so I hit it with 1000, 2000 and 4000 abralon. A great layout and ball on the fresh!! As the tournament progressed I was able to make one and one adjustments and keep the ball in play. I did not have to make a ball change for the entire 8 game block. J. Will BowlerX Staff

    I've drilled two Anaconda's to date (#1 30° x 4.250" x 40° / #2 40° x 4.625" x 65°). #1- I can say without a shadow of a doubt, that this ball is even better than the Absolute Inferno. No matter the pattern type, volume, or length, I am able to get a read and a look to the pocket with this ball, from going up the back of the ball playing outside 5 on short, or playing 22 and not giving away the 2 pin on long, this ball will keep me in the pocket. #2- On the medium volume, the ball had no issue recovering playing 16 to 5 and hit like it weighed 20lbs. On the heavier pattern, moving 4 left and using 4 as a breakpoint down lane, I saw a similar reaction and hit/carry. Bowling on shorter patterns, which is what I had this ball drilled for, it gave me a great read on the transition from oil to backend and is my new bench mark ball for short patterns. Having Anaconda #1 for about 6 months and Anaconda #2 for a week and seeing what it can do has solidified the fact that (with no disrespect to the Wicked Siege, Loaded Revolver, or the Alpha-Max, which are really good balls) the Anaconda is the best ball in Brunswick's current line. Everyone should have at least one Anaconda. If you liked the Absolute Inferno, this ball will not only replace the spot once occupied by that ball, but surpass it. --The opinions expressed are solely those of the writer and not of Brunswick Corporation--
