The Bonus Low RG 2.48 lower dif symmetrical ball wrapped in the strong Forged Solid coverstock that controls the midlane while producing a consistently  strong backend motion that is very continuous through the pins.
 I drilled mine 4 x 30 degrees making it very continuous through the pins.  I can miss in and it still carries because of the the strong coverstock and miss out and it recovers well. The solid blue cover makes it much like a black ball going down the lane and who doesnít like that look!
 This ball was designed to be an Intel on steroids. If you liked the Intel line then the Bonu$ is a canít miss for you and should be your benchmark ball.

COMMENTS

The Bonus is a AMAZING ball.  Very similar to the Radical Intel, just the Bonus has a stronger cover which means it rolls through the midlane earlier and has a stronger roll in the backend.  This ball will be a outstanding benchmark and tournament ball for alot of bowlers

Likes:  I drilled the Radical Bonus to be a bit longer and smoother as I drilled another control type ball at the same time, the Hammer Web Tour Hybrid. I didn't want them right on top of each other. Throwing them during the same session I was able to see I got just what I wanted. This ball get a further down the lane, has a smooth controllable shape with good continuation through the pins. Perfecto. Should work well in both league & tournaments.
