The Fortera Exile is a horse of a different color for Brunswick. With recent balls like the Nexus, Nexxus, Mastermind, and Mastermind Genius, Brunswick proved that they could produce dull bowling balls that not only created hook in the oil, but also stored enough energy to have a strong back end motion.  With the new Fortera Exile, Brunswick has created a product that provides more length and a stronger, more angular motion at the back end. The reaction of this ball can be explained by the core name, Fortera Flip. The Fortera Exile provides the most skid/flip reaction in the current Brunswick line.

The Fortera Exile’s type of reaction was best for our test team on the medium test pattern. All three testers saw a strong snap when this ball got to the friction. The lower grit
