The Perfect Mindset joins Brunswick’s Pro Performance line using an HK22-based version of the Evolution Hybrid coverstock that is paired up with the asymmetrical Mindset core. It comes out of the box at a 500/1500/3000 SiaAir finish, which is smoother than the 500/1500 SiaAir box finish on the original Mindset.

Cranker had just a slightly better reaction than the other two bowlers on the fresh medium oil pattern. He really liked how much traction the Perfect Mindset created in the midlane.

Cranker had the best reaction out of our three bowlers on the heavy oil pattern as well. His higher rev rate had no trouble creating plenty of motion on this longer pattern, but he did have to play a bit straighter through the front on the fresh.
