Slingshot™ Black/Pink

Powrkoil 17 ™ Coverstock

The Slingshot features the popular Brunswick PowrKoil 17 Reactive coverstock. PowrKoil 17 is a mild reactive coverstock that will create length with a medium response to friction on dry to medium-dry lane conditions. The Slingshot is available in a variety of bright pearlized colors to match any bowler’s style.


The Slingshot is the first ball in its class with a two-piece shaped dynamic core. The two-piece shaped dynamic core offers multiple drilling options and stronger hitting power compared to
the traditional three-piece pancake weight-block core available at the same price point.

Ball Motion

With its high gloss finish, the Slingshot will provide good length with a strong continuous backend reaction that matches up on dry to medium-dry lane conditions for a wide range of bowling styles.

Reaction Setup

The Slingshot 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 12 to 16 pounds. This approach to lightweight ball engineering provides bowlers with consistent ball reaction characteristics across this weight range.
