I have one and I really do like this ball, it has a late roll core and it goes long and comes back strong, it is not a jumpy strong just a real defined move and for the price of this ball you cannot go wrong. There are also quite a few videos out on this ball on utube.

Agreed this would of been a better choice than the hustle I bought. Too much ball for that condition. Should of trusted my first mind.

This is a true medium to light ball.  Unfortunately discontinued, but very good ball that didn't get enough attention.

agreed that this ball didn't get enough attention I got mine around 3 months ago and glad I did its quickly becoming my go to ball cause of how straight I can keep my angles through the front part of the lane

Great burn ball and for later in league sets on higher friction surfaces.

Would the Hectic be a good ball down from a Wreck Em?? In the market for a go to after my Wreck Em.

Absolutely.  Wreck Em is a lot of ball despite being in the HP2 line.  Hectic is really slow on the backend once you get a few games on it, so it's nice to be able to be able to be firm with it and still see a smooth controllable read on the backend.

On today's conditions, there is NO DOUBT that smoother reaction balls are more BENEFICIAL to the average bowler (myself included).  Without control, I truly believe the ball market would suffer.

Every ball CANNOT be super aggressive (sideways) off the spot, to the point of uncontrollable. Hopefully Roto grip will bring more of these pieces out.

If it wasn't for my blue hammer and black widow spare, I would be in a world of hurt on the lanes to play straighter.

Hectic is weaker than the loco for me.Actually the Hectic Should have stayed in the lineup as Roto's dry option.I do not understand the reasoning for low end to be so strong.Look around there is still some available I think.I bought two and put one back.Best weak option I have found.Trust me I have tried lots.Bought into the BTU hype and very disappointed.

Hectic and Loco Solid are two of the best dry lane balls ever made.  I don't understand it either, but has to be something with numbers.

Well just pulled the trigger on a Hectic. So I am hoping it is the med/light oil ball I needed and as good as you guys are saying!

FYI Buddies got me one from a supplier. 16 lb said 8 were left. Email them if you are interested.
