Stronger, weaker or the same as rogue assassin? Guesses based on numbers?

I'm guessing weaker due to the Assassin having a stronger cover.

Should go between the Assassin and Ripcord on the chart. This ball will corner for a dull ball.

Figures this would release two days after i'm done bowling the Open Championships. May have to see if I can pull off getting one early with a two ball pack order, though that didn't work for the Nemesis which i'm still waiting on it's arrival  :'(

You should have the Nemesis by now. I've had mine for several days

We typically get our two ball packs in at least a week before, sometimes two weeks, the street date. Still haven't received them as of last night, so not sure what's going on. Will get it sorted, I'm not overly concerned, Nick and the crew in Muskegon always take care of us

From the core specs I think you're right. I needed a ball up from my Supra today, oil was too long and I was leaving some corners. I get a feeling the Rogue Assassin wont be that much of a step up & the Forge Fire will be too much of a step up.
This ripcord could be right in between. Specs seem to have it closer to a Phaze II than the other 2.

The Rogue Assassin will be a big step up with that Jackal Ghost cover. Get a Venom Shock solid or Ripcord if you want the next step up.

According to the ball guide ripcord flight is a little longer and more angular than rogue assassin but same total hook. Both 3000 grit solids. I expect the rogue assassin to be
dropped soon due to the similarities. I'll definitely grab the assassin for $99 like the blade was clearenced out at recently for the step up over my Supra.
The ripcord flight looks like it's gonna be a more versatile ball

Comes down to sales, so we'll see.

I'm excited about the flight though, the balls in that slot have been really good quietly, the Chronic Paranoia was really good, and I expect this one to be similar to that, just a little stronger.

There's multiple tanks, tridents, forges, ripcords, jackals, Hydra/Supra but one lonely rogue that's extremely close to the new ball and doesn't seem like it's nearly got the buzz of the others...
Comes down to sales and the ripcord flight will canabalize the rogues same medium oil solid 3000 grit ball sales. It's gotta be the same slot in the majority of arsenals
