Speed: 17.9 RPM: 480 PAP: 5 7/8 RT x 2 1/4 DN No-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. The Ebonite Game Breaker 4 (GB4) is a contender for THE ‘benchmark’ symmetrical ball and THS killer. Easily a “first ball out of the bag”. The Game Breaker series from Ebonite has been the brand’s most famous in recent years because of it’s performance and value. The core engineers dissected the Enhanced V2 core to recreate the physical shape and numbers, knowing that this was the root of the GB line’s success. The GB4 is a solid reactive, featuring the proven GB 12.0 veneer, ensuring the performance and success us bowlers demand from a Game Breaker branded ball. With the out of box surface at 500/1500 and the Enhanced V2 core this ball reads the mid lane and digs it’s teeth in the back end to give me a motion that’s more of a hard arc than smooth and continuous. And that’s with an all purpose layout that I chose (70x4.5x35). But don’t get me wrong, this ball has excellent continuation. This ball is an excellent option to start a shift for league and, depending on the pattern you’re rolling on, should be plenty useful late into that shift even if you need to move to a deep inside line like I do. Don’t be afraid to adjust the cover (before your USBC sanctioned event starts) with some polish/shine to get the GB4 further down lane as you’ll still be able to get that shape that you’re looking for. With the Dark Red/Red colored cover stock and Orange lettering this ball looks great sitting on the ball rack and rolling down the lane, crushing the pins. Moderately priced, the GB4 outperforms expectations and the price point. With the intent for medium/med-heavy patterns I see the GB4 excelling on heavier volume patterns and with some polish/shine can be just as useful on lighter patterns or when the pattern transitions and a solid with surface is reading too early. Be well, rip racks ...and shred pins.
The history of the Game Breaker series has been one of my favorites. I have drilled a few of these gems and will now continue that tradition with a couple more of the GB4. This ball will not disappoint in any way. I like it best on medium oil but it can handle the heavier oil patterns as well. Don't be afraid to scuff it and don't be afraid the buff it. There's plenty of uses for this sweetie. Get it in your bag TODAY!!
The GB4 is the latest release by Ebonite. With the GB 12.0 solid coverstock and the Enhanced V2 core finished at 500/1500 Siaair pad, I found this GB to be earlier with more continuation down lane. If your a fan of the Game Breaker series, do yourself a favor and pick up a GB4. Make this dark red/red beauty a part of your arsenal!
The Ebonite Game Breaker 4 ( GB4 ) finds a way into my bag for sure. The big weight block & these core numbers 2.48, 0.048 have always worked well for me. I bowled on burned up Scorpion oil pattern and compared it against my Brunswick Knockout and my DV8 Damn Good Verge. All good pieces, but on this day the GB4 picked up sooner than the other two, It had more overall hook and good continuation. It has a nice rounded, controllable shape. It will be my big benchmark. Love the dual red rolling down the lane as well.
