The Reaper is designed for additional length and backend finish.
The new higher R.G., lower Differential Reaper XL core aids the Reaper in
creating exceptional length through the front part of the lane. The highly
polished Reactive Neoflex XL cover stock also assists in conserving
rotational energy thereby delaying the balls transition from skid to roll.
This leaves plenty of energy for backend finish where it is most needed on
medium to dry lane conditions. The Reaper is truly a "cut above the

The specifications are: Cover stock: Reactive Neoflex XL, factory polished;
Core: Single Density symmetrical power conservation sphere with dual finish
magnifying protrusions; Hook Potential: 17 (overall), 16 (length), 18
(backend); Radius of Gyration: 2.55; Differential: .039; Flare Potential:
2"-5"; Hardness: 76-78 D Durometer; Weights: 13-16 lbs.; Color: Reaper Black
and Blood Red.

I've bowled with this ball for 5yrs now and it's still great!
I'm a pwer bowler with high revs. This ball doesn't do well on really oily lanes but, light to medium oil it's a killer.
 I would give it a 10

Man! I've had this ball what seems forever (probably 7 years??) and i have to tell you this ball is still a beast! i love this ball. I've had it redrilled so i can always use it. and use it I DO! every week! and when my Xxcel is over reacting a little to much this bad boy is out doing its job! this ball will do anything u want it to. and still turns the corner hard with a solid power arc!
this ball can do no wrong! love it!
Game on the line in the 10th? I AM the one you want, I AM the one you need on the lane!

I found this ball on the rack at Recckios in Lackawanna, NY. It was all messed up and need some tlc. I took it home and cleaned it up I extracted the old thumb slug and put a new one in, I also put new finger grips in. I was having trouble lately at Thruway Lanes as they have recently changed the oil. I couldn't get anything to roll consistently. So I tried the Reaper about 4 weeks ago and man did I fall in love. I have shot 710, 704, 663 and finally 675 today will this ball. I now am looking more Reapers where ever I can find them. Its drilled pin next the ring finger (righty) and the cg is in the middle of the palm no weight hole.
