I guess it depends on the condition you plan on using them on.

I'm partial to the Red Alert. It's a decent price, with good consistent performance.

No wsy to snswer that question.   Everyone bowler is different.  I never saw any old Zone that wasnt pretty good for my game, particularly on tougher conditions.  Other good players might disagree totally with me.

I just went back and read the specs on the blast zone.   Asymetric, with activator hybrid shell.  Never threw one, but specs are very close to my all time favorite Vapor Zone.

As others have said, it really depends on your game and what you want to use it for. That being said, just based on the quality of the balls themselves, I'd rank them in this order: Tomahawk (I had the Low-torque and LOVED it!); Blast Zone; International Zone; LevRg Response. I'm basing that off of what I threw and/or saw thrown out of those.

One other thing.  Brunswick activator is one of the longest lasting low maintenance shells ever
