Discontinued now, but the Joker reads the mid lane and is more forward off the spot. Gives really good control and lets you keep your angles in front of you! For me it’s just not too versatile. Once I jump a zone left, it’s usually time to get out of it. Other than that, great ball!

If you happen to get your hands on one of these, you are in for a treat. This now retired ball is the essence of control on the lanes. Smooths out the patterns and gives you confidence as a transition ball, or as a benchmark to start the block out with.

This ball is a strong symmetrical solid. I would say it’s a touch stronger and earlier than the Daze for my game. Very smooth but it’s also very continuous through the pins.

Strong down the Lane and absolutely destroys the pins. I am a 2 finger bowler and this ball is amazing.

Strongest ball in my bag. Have to stand at least 5 boards left of anything else I have from California Bowling. Awesome ball for heavy oil. This ball handled the oil no problem, was very controllable and once it made its turn to the pocket just destroyed the pins. Great ball for heavy oil and tough tournament conditions.

18.5 mph ball speed down lane
400-450 rev rate

This ball allows me to open up the lane on fresh patterns even at my high ball speed. It's a great ball for high Rev and ball speed players, but I think it would be too strong and early for those who play up the 5 board and in.

Great solid ball for heavy or fresh oil.

If you are looking for a strong ball to read the mid lane this is your ball. I was missing this in my bag and man the Joker is no joke. i shot 716 out the box.

Oh my goodness. This ball is an absolute monster. Stand as far left as you can and throw it as right as you can and watch it just absolutely eat through the oil and come back from the next zip code. I have mine with a 105 x 3.75 x 30 layout. Threw it on fresh and had absolutely no issue being able to hook the whole lane. But it also has the ability on a shorter pattern to set up in the pocket and continue through the pins. Definitely a must have in the bag.

David Mobley use this ball on a sport shot pattern in tournament play tough shot on pattern but was real happy to use this ball shot a total series of 750 to win tournament. Great ball to use on sport pattern for any oil pattern.

I'm a very happy customer,avg is 197, 17 ball speed and I seen a video from bowler x of the incredible ball, and the big bro. I bought them 2 months ago, and went to a tournament in largo FL, very happy with the results and the REV'S I rolled with these balls, won brackets and team came in 3rd, my fellow bowlers asked are those new storm balls, huh WHAT, Heck no, their Swag, and of course I had to show them the line up of the entire balls, so happy today I purchased 2 more swagger and the joker, I'm am so FREAKING HAPPY TO TELL YOU GUYS, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, Before you know it , I will have given all my hammers away even though I bought them before EBI ,went to BRUNSWICK, I'm going to be a dedicated Swagger ball man, thank you very much guys

This ball is a sweet rolling not jerky and not over reactive for a solid
Rolls well in oil an does not over react when it touches the dry to me a must have ball

On lord field staff try this ball out on pba patterns and house shot patterns also other different patterns it will not let you down shot plenty of 300 games 279 games two high 800 series and some 299 games and 298 games with it great ball to have. Thinks swag line for having great equipment to use.

The Joker is an amazing ball when there is oil to keep it in. I have mine drilled at 45X4X30 and kept the original finish on the ball and it hits really hard. I am looking to change the finish the 3000 or 4000 so that I can get a little more energy stored for later down the lane. This really is a must have ball.

I got this ball last year and i love it shot a 300 with it and like 5 or more 279 .

This ball does tricks down the lane, I don't do anything fancy with my layouts. Pin above the bridge and I love the moves this ball makes. It's so clean through the heads and when it hits my break point; it makes a turn like no tomorrow. This is a must have ball for your bag.

This is a very strong ball to have I had to adjust the cover stock and repolish to control little bit more for me !! But if your looking for an aggrisve ball to get through wet heads this is a must to have !
05-21-2019 03:11 AM
This ball is great on heavy oil. Strong cover. It stores its energy thru the head and mid lane and unleashes it when it hits the pins. Took my cover up to 3000 and wow. this is a must have for your bag.
James Ellington

The Joker is a tremendous ball when you need consistent ball roll and carry. The strong Dazzler 1 cover does make it rev up in the early midlane, but the ball roll is smooth and controllable. It seems to store energy forever and still hits hard regardless. Ideal for heavier oil patterns.

I drilled mine pin under ring finger and I actually used 4000 abralon on it right out of the box. The ball is so consistent and hits like a truck! It has quickly became my bench mark ball. Swing it or play it up the boards either way! Play your cards right and get the joker!

This ball is great on heavy oil. Strong cover. It stores its energy thru the head and mid land and unleashes it when it hits the pins. This ball is must in your tournament bag.

This balls cover is amazingly strong and starts to hook as soon as it touches the lane, do not let the symmetrical core fool you because this ball is very strong off the spot.

Honestly this ball is best used in heavy oil environments with its out of box surface finish. If you smooth the surface a bit however, you can definitely use it on dryer lane conditions.

I love this ball! Hits very hard. I actually sanded mine to 500. I wanted something for very heavy oil. Its a beast! #SWAG

So after going from 15 to 14 lb equipment i bought this ball and i am so very happy i did. After a week of using different lines to see what it can do i amhave now had series of 623 656 and 630. The balls color turns heads and so so does its reaction. The way it enters the pocket and the violence it unleashes still amaze me. Really hope they make another in this like of swag. By far my favorite bench mark ball

This ball is everything the hype said it would be, and more. I have mine drilled, pin through the ruing finger, for a great combination of length and continuous motion. 35 games in with this ball, between league and tournaments, and am averaging 233+ with this ball. Like American Express, I never leave home without it.

This is the most aggressive ball currently in my bag. I used to have an issue with corner pins because my old equipment just wouldn’t face up and finish properly. I bring this ball out, and it absolutely destroys the rack. Very versatile and smooth, and a must-have in your bag!

The Joker is no joke. This ball did it all in the oil from a 13-7 swing to swing it across 30 boards on the 39' USBC White #3 pattern. The joker carried from spots on the lane where other balls would be a guaranteed corner pin, especially deep inside. In my bag the Joker is going to be my "A" ball for long, high volume patterns.
Marco Hernandez

I like this ball. It was drilled pin up with cg out to get an earlier roll and arc. The more arc in my shot with this ball the better chance of smashing. I will say that when I play the shot tighter its good chance I will leave an pin from the back or 10 pin.

I have this drilled pin up. It has been my go to ball since I got it drilled. It is a great ball for both sport patterns and house shots. Most predictable ball I have. It destroys pins. I also like the color pattern on this ball. Makes it very easy to see how ball is rolling. I have used it on a lot of sport patterns since I got it. Love this ball on all patterns.

The Joker is a ball that I am really excited about. This is a strong rolling hard hitting ball that keeps the pins mixed up and low to the pin deck. This type of reaction equals more strikes. Even though it does not hook gutter to gutter it is very easy to manipulate the break point which allows the bowler to control the entry angle. This ball is so easy to read off the hand and on the lanes which allows you to easily stay ahead of the moves. The consistency and performance you get from this ball makes it one of the best in the game. I've used mine 5 weeks in league so far and my 15 game average with the Joker is 247.9. Why not see what the Joker can do for your game!

Playing up the lanes from outside this ball with pin down rules the pocket.The lanes were flooded yet this wonderful ball sanded to 1500 sat up in the pocket and produced 162- 298 -241=701

Don't think this ball is not strong just because its symmetric. The cover on this ball grips the lane with authority.

Mine is drilled 70 x 3 3/8 x 20. With this layout, I can bring the surface up and move left - or I can rough the surface and move right. It has excellent continuation through the pins with excellent front and midlane read.

Not very often I come across a ball that instantly becomes my go to ball at multiple houses, this ball easily falls into that category. I'm a low rev stroker who usually plays straight up the 7 or 8, around 15mph . Drilled on up stacked and on a heavy oil 41 foot shoot the ball instantly found the pocket with a very strong, yet predictable reaction in the out of box condition. At a different center, 42 foot medium condition, moved inside a little due to less oil, the ball just struck over and over, when I missed and pushed it right 3-4 boards, it found its way back. On the 37 foot Broadway pattern, was able to play straight up 5 and had a money shot when everyone else was struggling to find the pocket. I already have a 2nd drilled up for more length, and really couldn't be happier.

Quite possibly the strongest ball I've ever owned. Pin up, had to polish to control this animal. Hits HARD! May get another one and leave rough for tourneys.

Just to add the Joker was my first Swag ball and it was a awesome choice I have to thank Brian Roberts and Doug Humphreys for the recommendations I was not lead astray . This ball has already replaced my 1st ball out of the bag.
Mark Tibbs

Love the way the ball hits keeping the pins low on the deck leaving the possibility of messengers on corner pins( if need be). Nice transition to the pocket with a lot of energy. All I can say is NEXT!!! Looking at the Blizzard Shock
Shane Conners

I finally found a ball that is similar to the Terminator Armageddon. The Joker is a bit stronger but with the layout I have with it. It makes it a really Smooth to the pocket and now I have something that I can use to ball down from the Blizzard Shock then if the Joker is bit strong still I can always ball down again to the Terminator Armageddon.
Shane Conners

Kept the original finish. This ball is a monster I'm so glad I got it punched up. Once lane breaks down I can finish with the Terminator Armageddon and have a good series. This will definitely will be one of my favorites. This SWAG line is for REAL.

After having a few weeks of using this ball, I decided to take it to a 4000 sanded finish. This was the trick for me at my house that has a medium to heavy volume. I had the ball drilled with a stacked layout. The ball reads the mids super clean and has great continuation through the pins! First time throwing the ball at 4000 sanded I shot a 296 game with a 799 series! I was able to use the ball even when the lanes broke down. By far my favorite ball in my bag. I would highly recommend getting one before they're gone !

This ball eats through oil without an issue. I drilled mine pin down to help open up my angle on house shots and it has done just that. I was looking for a strong solid to help me play around the bowlers in the track and this ball fits the bill. It does not overreact when it hits the dry on the outside and gives me plenty of area. This is my first ball from the Swag line, but it will not be my last!
Yuma Scott

This ball instantly became my favorite for medium heavy to heavy oil. Fresh oil has no chance with this beast! It compliments the Athena very well. This ball looks as good as it performs, I highly recommend it!
Brandon Parz

This ball is a beast!! If you don’t have one in your arsenal, ORDER IT NOW!!! It smashes the pocket like a Gallagher smashing watermelons. Shot 299 with it last week, had it drilled with a stacked layout.

This ball is a monster I'm so glad I got it punched up. Pinned up and so loves oil, has a strong finish and hits so hard. Once lane breaks down I can finish with yolo pearl and have a good series
Laurie Ognian

Kept the original finish. CG is kicked out slightly and the pin is positioned just above the fingers. The ball needs oil and will compliment your arsenal & drives hard through the pocket.

Strong cover. I polished mine. The ball still makes the turn very predictable but hard at the break point. Great ball for speed dominant players with the box finish or you can polish it like i did to get more length and love it no matter what type of bowler you are.
Dennis Runkle

Strong cover stock and this ball has an unbelievable motion down lane off the spot for a symmetrical core.
Drilled this ball at 60x4x32 and had to change the surface to 3000 with polish in order to get the ball down-lane on some of the local THS conditions.
Check out the hitting power of this ball. This will definitely will be one of my favorites. This SWAG line is for REAL!.
Brian Roberts

All "jokes" aside. This ball is a beast. I have a stacked pin up layout. While it goes long with this layout it certainly doesn't lose energy through the final transition to the pocket. Medium or heavy oil this ball is a definite for leagues and tournaments.
