Katana
on: October 26, 2017, 04:22:46 PM
Ball NPS Score: 100.00
The Radical Katana was named after a Japanese sword that has a curved single edged blade with a long grip. This bowling ball uses an asymmetric core design that really smashes through the pins. Radical feels that this is their most angular high performance ball to date. This core is paired with their Forged coverstock to make this ball very responsive.

Color: Black/Charcoal Pearl
Core: Katana Asymmetric
RG: 2.503**
Differential: 0.050**
** RG and Diff are based off of 15 lb. balls
Recommended Lane Condition: Heavy Oil

This is my 2nd Radical ball and I'm impressed with the performance of the Kantana. I drilled mine 50x 4.5 x40 with a P3 hole. Threw this on a THS in a tournament out the box and shot 246-300-298 = 844, for 9 games I shot 2282. Ball was very clean through the lane with nice strong finish but not jerky. I would recommend if your look for a pearl ball when you solid is too strong and not getting down lane.. Now that's Rad

COMMENTS

The Radical Katana is a outstanding benchmark ball that every bowler HAS to have in their arsenal.  The ball is clean through the front and picks up a early midlane read and strong flip in the backend.  Laid this one out to complement my Hitman when the Hitman becomes too angular, I can go to the Katana which rolls pretty close and slows down the motion in the backend.  The Katana is a must to have in the bag.
