Looking to put together a 2 or 3 ball set.......
on: January 11, 2017, 11:20:59 AM
Lefty, 6-4", 16-18mph, med revs, can't tell you about my PAP *(yet)

Currently have Radical Mighty Guru, looking to add 2 balls to compliment this one.  Picked up bowling again during the off season (golf) and shot a 300 and averaged 210 during our 12 week league.  So, gradually trying to get back into it and maybe bowl a tournament or 2 for strikes and giggles.

Any suggestions on complimentary balls?

Thank you in advance.

Are you looking at a all Radical arsenal, or different brands?

By compliment do you mean two balls to go under the Guru Mighty or one above and one below? There's a ton of different combinations either way. Or is there a couple of specific motions you want to add to your bag.

Yeah, this isn't a simple question with simple answers these days. Too many variables and too many balls on the market to choose from.  ;D

No brand loyalty until one of them cuts me a check to using their stuff.

No doubt about the variables. Looking for one above and one below the Mighty.  As for motions one being more angular and the other being a bit smoother.  Any other adjustments should be left up to me and hand positions, practicing, practicing and oh yeah, more practicing.

Guru Mighty, Jackpot (pearl) and Scandal (pearl), what's next?  Something dull, but what?

The guys that throw radical in my sport league love the Fix for their heavy oil ball

a solid, that has a smoother roll like and IQ Tour can almost always have a place in a persons bag.

What about the Alpha Crux and/or the Tyrant (solid)?  How does the Fix move when dealing with +40ft in length of heavy oil patterns?

Personally, I have a Scandal above by Mighty. It is stronger and smoother. Below I use a Grape Rack Attack solid, but it is smooth as butter, not angular as you want.

Well 2 turned to 4 with a 5th on the way.

Guru Mighty
Scandal Pearl
Jackpot Pearl
Pitbull
Alpha Crux (to be drilled)
White Dot (spares)

I think I'm good for now, but of course may be tempted come late summer early fall.

Rene,

If you still throw it the same as you did in college, some nice additions would be DV8 Pitbull, a hook-monster which even you can't overthrow and the Swerve GT, with a flippy drilling.  Consider also a Code Black.  You had a higher heavy roll and those should work well.
