Not for a particular style, just in term of hooking potential in the
oiliest conditions.

I'm going to beat Rags on this one.....

Let's see, how do I say this.........oh, here.....

NOTHING...I repeat,...NOTHING HOOKS ON OIL!! Does a ball stand up, does a ball bite more in oiler conditions, ...yes, but nothing HOOKS in oil.

If you throw it slow enough it will hook.

OK then. So I reformulate my stupid question:
Which ball do you think will bite the most in heavy oiled
condition? Much better, no?

To reiterate a previous answer, nothing Reactive Resin
 hooks in oil since the purpose of resin is to "skate"
 over the surface of oil and save the reaction for the backend.
 
  In my opinion the best oil balls are still urethane, specifically
 the old favorite Blue Hammer, or a Sumo.

  People often overlook the old equipment since new balls come out
 so quickly.

A KU bowler told me that the Raging Inferno is quite possibly the best ball he's ever thrown.  Like a regular Inferno that hooks more and gives you more room.  Lol, I wouldn't be able to handle the Inferno, although I still want one.

I've got an Inferno and have been very impressed how it
hooks on med-heavy oiled lanes(I won't say how it bites
in oil, it's polished reactive and hasn't got teeth)compared to my particle stuff specially designed for these conditions. This cover is really special, the core very efficient too. A friend of mine (excellent player and driller) got the Raging Inferno lately and told me that this one is stronger than the original. Mine is already ordered!
