I'll be honest, for house shots, this is the new release from Radical I was really anxious to see. Out of the box, first impressions were that this ball has some crazy shelf appeal. I think it looks amazing!
Drilled this ball the same as one of my original Yetis for house shots and shorter sport shots.
All I can say is wow, honestly. This ball was everything I expected but better. After about 6 frames of game 1 playing around with the Reax Version 2, I pulled this out, moved 5 boards left (I'm left handed), squared the lane up, and just started striking at will. I don't normally have recovery down lane at Plaza on Wednesdays and hold on the same night, but this ball gave me both. I could miss left further into the dry a few boards, watch it go through the early hook spot and retain energy until the back end and then just attack it; I could get it in a few boards, watch it sail through the front, but then still hook hard in the back to not leave the weak half-pocket corner pins.
Throwing this ball exclusively for the last half of game 1, the whole of game 2, and on the right lane only in game 3, I had 24/28 strikes and just couldn't miss (until the left lane transitioned at the end of game 2 and I had to ball back up to the Version 2 and move 2 boards back to the right).
VERY VERY happy about this ball, and where it fits. Its great because when that 1.5" pin original Yeti would see the spot a little soon sometimes and give me more roll through the middle of the lane, this ball gets through that spot and retains energy. Very excited to see what it looks like on the lower volume sport shots.
Another winner from Radical!
