MOST TRUSTED LINES IN BOWLING!
The Ebonite Game Breaker series is one of the most trusted lines in bowling and now provides more value and performance. Game Breakers continue to dominate the mid-performance category, and the new GB4 Hybrid might be the most exciting release in this line yet. Adding the HK22 base to a hybrid Game Breaker means versatility and strikes – lots of them. This exciting addition of a base coverstock that is changing the game to the already proven and famous Enhanced V2 core will make this one of the most anticipated Ebonite releases in quite some time.

I drilled mine 45 X 4 ⅛ X 75. The Ebonite GB4 Hybrid is an absolute must-have in your bag. I love the shape of this piece, and it quickly became a lock in my tournament bag. The Game Breaker series is one of the most trusted lines in bowling, and this is my favorite one yet. Pairing the HK22 cover with a hybrid Game Breaker is a very predictable and angular ball off the spot. It clears the front portion of the lane easily and is extremely continuous. I will definitely drill more of these in the future.
The GB4 Hybrid is the first ball out of my bag on just about all conditions unless I know there’s a ton of oil. This benchmark predictable rolling ball allows me to start where I know I’m comfortable and to assess what changes I might want to make. I drilled mine a short pin, pin down layout of 80 x 2.25 x 75. This has given me smoother motion with a controlled backend. It does not struggle to hook, just controls the backend beautifully. The Game Breaker line has been super successful for a reason, and this one might be the best of the bunch for me. https://youtube.com/shorts/wpT7_SkYfKI?feature=share
The gb4 pearl was always in my bag for the better part of this past year so I was pretty excited to try the gb4 hybrid with hk22. This is exactly what you would expect with the hk22, clean through the front with a quick change in direction but with the continuation I love seeing in the game breaker line. This ball is a great addition to any bag but is a easy step down from the gb4 when the lanes get burnt or on a lower volume shot.
Ebonite's latest release, the GB 4 Hybrid maybe my favorite GB4, to date. Definitely fits right in between the GB4 solid and pearl versions. Goes a little longer than the solid with more rounded motion. But, not as long as the pearl, which has a more angular motion. The GB4 Hybrid with the added HK22 base, makes this purple/black beauty stand out in the mid performance category and on the lanes, too.
It has been a very long time since I have thrown an Ebonite ball. Hybrid balls have worked incredible for me in the past and I had heard many great things about the Game Breaker line of bowling balls. I have to say that I am very impressed with the GB4 Hybrid. This ball has exceptional hook ability. With the added HK22 additive to this ball, the backend ball reaction is just incredible! I put a basic leverage drill layout in this ball. It allows me to move more left and open the lanes up, knowing the ball will recover. With my ball speed, I altered the surface a little to have the ball read more in the mid-lanes. When this ball sees friction, it responds with dynamic ball shape and motion which makes pins just fly everywhere. The big core with the HK22 additive makes this ball an incredible choice for all levels of bowling and is a must have in your bag. This ball for me works on heavier volumes of oil with my surface adjustment. Without altering the surface, this ball is very versatile and can be used on various lane of conditions.
