The Raid revs up quick off your hand, reads the midlane well and makes a strong move to the hole. Hits and carries great.. Could be the first ball out of your bag..Dislikes:
Can get kind of squirty when it encounters some carrydown. If the heads are dry then put this one away.
I decided to drill a Raid because I liked the coverstock. Its the same cover that was on the Ebonite Angular One. I drilled this one with the pin above my ring finger, cg kicked out about an inch or so and the mass bias right next to my thumb hole. My PAP is 4 3/4" right and 1/2" up.
The first time I used the Raid was on a fresh house shot during one of my leagues at Executive Strike and Spare. The shot is pretty easy but carry can be troublesome sometimes. I started playing the Raid at my normal shot which is about 25 out to about 10 and this ball had a great reaction. It would clear the heads nicely and pick up alot of revs entering the midlane where it would make its read and then unleashed all its energy on the backend. The energy it delivered to the pins was excellent and it kept the pins low on the deck. Light hits seemed to carry well as did shots that ran a little high. Overall I was pretty impressed with the Raid.
I really wasn't expecting much out of the Raid. I figured it was just another Ebonite Angular One clone but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The Raid can definitely stand on its own and would be an excellent choice to be the first ball out of your bag.
