What is your PAP, speed, rev rate? I should have one of each here this week and I am trying to figure out what I want to do with them.

Threw my newly drilled DV8 arsenal tonite and all i can say is WOW! Just enough difference between them that i can easily go up and down the line as needed. Started out with the Misfit drilled 88x4x72 pin below, see pic. Ball slides comfortably thru fronts with no jump, but once it experiences the dry BE, watch out. A strong and angular BE is awaiting you. Amazing how much you can open up the lane and the carry is phenomenal.

The Reckless drilled 45x3 1/4x35 really is smooth as can be, even on backend. Great benchmark ball to start nite off with and easily move to either misfit or hellraiser once you read it.

The Hellraiser drilled 45x4 1/2x 35 pin above bridge, ball really gets into nice roll and strong, continuous BE reaction. Needs oil to be effective i believe. I was bowling on a 2nd shift open play lane b/c all i bowl is late nite leagues so 2nd shift crap is all i get. Then i threw my Desperado just to see what it would do. I could stand 5 right of my misfit and play the burnt track right to pocket.

 

All in all a great new arsenal where you can easily adjust on the lanes. Easily readable. For each ball, im around 5-7 boards difference.

How would you compare the Hell Raiser to the Cruel LE you have?

I would say the Cruel LE gets it a much heavier roll sooner then the Hellraiser. The hellraiser has more BE than the Cruel LE. The LE would be good fro heavier longer patterns for me as the Hellraiser would be good for heavier, shorter patterns.
