What is so great about the MACE core in the Siege line of Brunswick bowling balls?
Can anybody shed some light on the differences between Evil Siege and Wicked Siege?

The numbers are there for all to see really.

Wicked Siege:
Total diff.: .050"
Int diff.: .020"
Diff. ratio: .4

Evil Siege:
Total diff.: .056"
Int diff.: .030"
Diff. ratio: .54

I would expect both balls to be aggressive off the spot with a TON of flare. Both balls have "super" covers on them as well, so I would expect them both to perform exceptionally well on the heavy stuff.

You're right on. The Evil has a higher diff. ratio so it will have a shorter transition and be more midlane. The Wicked has a formulation change and a lower diff. ratio so it will transition later, and with the formulation change in the cover, be a more backend ball.
I like them both.

I've been thinking about trying both balls. I have an original Siege and I enjoy the ball, but it doesn't get much use because the Frenzy covers the reaction I was looking for, but with a little more recovery on the back end.

Oh well.

Those are all good balls to have in an arsenal. The FRENZY is the only one that's not a "super" cover. By the way, three of them have a version of the MACE core. To answer your question, THAT'S WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THE MACE CORE!

From latest to earliest, they go:
FRENZY
Wicked Aiege
Evil Siege
Siege

the first thing i noticed about the numbers is that both the wicked and evil have the MACE core but the RG numbers are different. did they change the densities and keep the shape? what happened there?

BINGO!

I believe that's the only way you can manipulate the numbers without changing the shape of the core. This stuff is fascinating man. I would love to try my hand at designing a core one day. Some how, I don't think I'll get a chance. Would be interesting though.

They changed the shape slightly to get the different diffs.
