The Knock Out is Brunswick’s newest strong symmetric ball. The core is symmetrical Melee, as seen in the Uppercut. It also features a solid version of Savvy Hook 3.0 solid coverstock. The Knock Out is packaged in a 500/1000/2000 SiaAir box. The Knock Out’s dull box finish and low RG core design allow it to rev up quickly and offer plenty of versatility. The Knock Out is one of those rare bowling balls that can roll on almost any surface for all types of bowling. The ball performed well on all four test patterns for all three testers.

Tweener was able to use almost the entire lane of the medium pattern. There is plenty of room for error in both directions, and many options to reach the pocket on both the fresh and transition. The Knock Out offered the perfect mix of midlane traction and angle at the back end. He found the best line was to cross around the third arrow, using the six-board as his breakpoint.

The Knock Out is the newest Brunswick product, and it has been a hit at Total Bowling Gear! Brunswick offers a home run benchmark product that is suitable for everyday league conditions with medium oil. Many times, I throw new products, and I find myself making surface adjustments within a few games. I wish I could place a weight hole in them, or try to figure how they fit together. The Knock Out was a game changer. I could see the ball’s motion instantly and knew exactly where it would go in the bag.

The Brunswick Knock Out uses a medium rg core with a medium differential that was previously used in Brunswick’s Melee Jab. This core has been combined with a Savvy Hook 3.0 Solid black bowling balls coverstock to make this ball suitable for medium-heavy oil conditions. It’s finished with a 2000-grit sanded exterior that will match the needs of a wide variety of customers.

Brunswick Knock Real Photo

The Brunswick Knock Out great benchmark ball. I used a standard pin distance of 5″ to my axis point. This ball cleared the front of the lanes fairly easily, while still providing enough track flare in the middle and backend. I wanted to find softer/slower friction transitions using the 30 degree drill angle and a 30° VAL angle. The Knock Out worked perfectly. This ball performed very well against the Storm Phaze II in several environments. The Brunswick cover is slightly responsive in the front lane. However, the motion in the middle and back is almost identical to Storm’s product.

The Knock Out is too great to mess around with right now, so I haven’t had to make any surface adjustments. This ball is a lot more downlane than any of the Brunswick launches lately, and I think they are on to something with this combination. This one is not to be missed! This is going to be a solid recommendation for customers who want to know how to read the lane.

Performance Index

HIGH: Highly-performing balls that offer great hook potential in a variety of conditions.

Brunswick Core


A versatile ball motion that can be used in all lane conditions. Usually a strong and continuous arcing ball. Higher numbers will result in stronger overall reactions. Also, this is a mid-price line ball, so it’s a great choice for beginners.


The great reaction shape, the higher the number. 1 is the lowest and 100 the highest.

Dynamicor Technology

The Knock Out uses Brunswick’s revolutionary outer core technology, DynamiCore. This technology, which is the industry’s best, allows for less compression upon impact. It increases hitting power and creates a noticeable difference in pin carry and sound.

Customers Reviews


As I wanted to have a strong symmetric ball for tournaments, I drilled my Knockout strong (45×4.25×25). Symmetric balls are my favorite because they move smoothly down the lane. I’ve also enjoyed a few balls with the Melee core so I was excited to get this ball.

The Brunswick Knock Out was a great choice! I was pleasantly surprised by how much it gave me a hook. It also corned very well down the lane, especially for a solid. This ball’s strength is best described by the Purple Edge ball motion and the Melee Hook.

It has been used on 41′ Beaten Path, our house pattern, and one of the Weber Cups patterns. I like what I have seen. My speed has been good, although I had trouble keeping up with the track. However, my look improved as I got closer to the third and fourth arrows. It was simple to control the large sweeping arc by playing with my hand. As the pattern dried, I was able to increase my speed while still seeing the ball finish at the back end.

The Brunswick Knock Outis shorter than other balls in my bag and has the same strong backend move as the Melee Jab Blood Red. Although the Knockout started a little later than my Hero Solid, it had a more consistent and strong backend move. It is closest in ball motion to my Omni Solid, Solid Melee Jab, but a little weaker.

The Brunswick Knock Out is recommended for all types of bowlers in medium-oiled conditions. This versatile piece could be used as a great bench mark ball for players who are more rolly or an end piece for players who are less speedy/rev dominant.


This Brunswick Knock Out is truly a knockout and this is a great benchmark ball. My favorite symmetrical layout was 4×30. It’s a great benchmark symmetrical, that hitting power is hard and gets down lane quickly. This is a slight step down from the Bonus solid, but it will be much more accurate than my Bonus Pearl. It looks great in there. This is the perfect item for anyone who loves striking.


This ball’s name says it all. This ball is a knockout. This ball is strong, angular, and continuous. It is also controllable. The 2000-strength surface of the ball allows me to use it in medium/medium heavy oils. It is very versatile and can be used from many angles, depending on the hand position. It’s quite straight through the front of the lane, with a rounded shape down the lane. It is comparable to the Melee jab blood red. However, it takes 2-3 feet longer but continues through the pins. They are great together as they complement each other.

The Brunswick Knock Out is a very reliable shape, the first ball from the bag shape of the ball. This ball is strong and symmetrical, making it a great follow-up to the Uppercut. It’s quite straight through the front lane, with a smooth curve down the lane. And this is a reason to look for some other Brunswick jab bowling balls.


This bowling ball Brunswick Knock Out is a super versatile ball for me and others. It’ll give you good control in a lane with the help of a new cover. It tends to accumulate oil more quickly than others I have seen. If that is what you are looking for, make sure to clean it regularly and scratch the surface.

Personally, I prefer the ball because of the backend motion it makes. With a little shine, it can turn the corner for me well. Although I try to keep it clean, I don’t often scratch the surface. This is one of the brunswick’s hottest balls.
