Ball NPS Score: Not Available
Radical created the Jackpot Solid to meet a need of typical league bowlers. This ball not only hits an affordable price point but it also executes well on the usual house shot. The Jackpot core is covered with an aggressive solid coverstock designed to provide more bite down the lane. This ball is the Jackpot for any league bowler!

Color: Black/Dark Green Solid
Core: Symmetric with Scoop Technology
Finish: 500/4000 Siaair Micro Pad
RG: 2.573 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.056 (15# ball)

COMMENTS

Likes: Radical continued with their mid price range (ez-use) ball with the Jackpot solid. It uses the same core as the original Jackpot but with a strong cover. This ball is an excellent choice for league bowlers looking for a strong symmetric ball at a great price point.

I drilled mine pin up(70x5x40) which is similar to my original Jackpot. Big difference between both is the midland read. What I really like with this ball is that it never quits, once it reads the midlane, it just doesn't die.
This ball fits well between my Fix and my original Jackpot. Great benchmark ball!!!

Dislikes: Seems cliché but none, ball fits lots of different lane patterns.

Specs: Left Handed, 15 mph, ~400 rev rate, drilled my Jackpot 55*x4x55* (PAP is 4 1/2" over, 1/2" up). We tried something different with this, drilling the pin in my ring finger. I needed a weight hole as well. I chose this drilling because I my "go to" drilling has been pin over the fingers or pin under the fingers (I don't tend to drill too many pins less than 2-3"), so thought this might be a decent happy medium.

This solid cover on this ball is a great mid-range cover! I have found that taking a light (by hand) bad and hitting it with anywhere from 2000-4000 grit has helped me blend the lanes front to back, which dramatically helped control the ball going through the pins (especially at a couple of bowling centers where newly installed Twister Pins have been used this year). This allowed me to start with the solid Jackpot and as I migrated too far right, or if the ball just couldn't maintain enough energy to go through the pins correctly, I could shell down to the original Jackpot (or ball up to something like a Ridiculous Asym) and keep drilling those pins! Like every line of balls within the Radical Family, we fill voids. We don't re-tread another ball and just put a new logo on it, there are strategic releases that allow us to meet specific metrics on the lane. Get your hands on this ball, as it can be another great benchmark ball for a league or tournament player.
