Additional product information:

The new Brunswick Defender Hybrid is the first ball introduced using HK22. You'll first notice the shelf appeal and colors of the Defender Hybrid and how they pop; this is due to the new translucent base material. The new base material HK22 creates a noticeable and exciting advancement in shiny ball hook potential, creating more teeth in the mid-lane for a shiny ball and a stronger, more responsive breakpoint. The ACT 3.0 additive package was added to the HK22 base to achieve optimal ball reaction. The overall result is more backend and a shiny ball that will handle more volume and give the bowler more area at the breakpoint.

    Best Hybrid I’ve Ever Thrown

    Posted by Scott Crawford on Jan 18th 2023

    I can’t say enough good things about this ball. The new Hyper Kinetic HK22 cover stock technology is just plain amazing. This ball has the most reaction and response to friction that I have in a hybrid or pearl. It has good length being a hybrid and seems to be very forgiving to misses. It has enough hold if you are inside target a bit and enough traction to still go through the pins well in the oil and if you are outside target a little it has more than enough change of direction to easily make it all the way back. I went skid flip layout 70 x 3.75 x 20 on mine.

    The Game has Changed…..the new Defender Hybrid with HK22

    Posted by Bryan Williams, PBA Member and DV8 Pro Staff on Dec 14th 2022

    I have thrown many different balls in my career, but I have never thrown something quite like this. The New Brunswick Defender Hybrid is the newest performance ball with the first ever HK22 coverstock. HyperKinetic22 (HK22) reactive urethane coverstock formula has been added to the already successful and reliable ACT 3.0 Hybrid additive creating optimal ball reaction resulting in increased backend on higher oil volume. The Defender Hybrid has a much faster response to friction than any other ball I have thrown in my career. Additionally, The Defender Hybrid has a VERY unique quality, as I have seen that I do not leave as many ten pins as I have in the past with other bowling balls. The Defender Hybrid just finishes much stronger than any ball in my arsenal. The more friction this ball hits, the quicker the response and movement through the pins. The Defender Hybrid is simply AMAZING. If you have not seen this ball in action, please go by your local pro shop, see when a demo day is coming to your local bowling center and give one a try. You will NOT be disappointed!

    Defender Hybrid w/HK22

    Posted by C. Miller on Nov 19th 2022

    The Defender Hybrid with the new HK22 additive has hit the lanes and turning heads with it's shelf appeal and it's responsiveness down lane. Straight out of the box and to the lanes, the first thing I noticed was it's shape at the breakpoint. Then it was the continuation through the pins. A combination that I have not seen in a ball. This one checks all the boxes and has found a home in my bag!

    Brunswick Defender Hybrid

    Posted by Bob Newman on Oct 18th 2022

    First off, this new HK22 coverstock has an almost translucent look to it giving The Defender Hybrid great shelf & lane appeal. When I first threw this ball, I compared it against my Paragon Hybrid and the eye test told me these were the same ball. I talked to my guy back at the factory and he said the Defender will have a faster response to friction and the more friction the bigger the shape difference. Fast forward to Thursday night league. Shot 250 game 1 with the Paragon Hybrid, late in game 2 I started to leave corner pins for 220. Started game 3 with a couple more corners, switch to the Defender Hybrid which was now finishing stronger and promptly threw the next 7 and all were 10 in the pit. It was very continuess from the deeper angle. Good change, good ball.
