It's time to put on our #TinFoilHats and break out the inflatable #Aliens as we head to the lanes again with Lane Side Reviews.  This time they are going take on the new #ConspiracyTheory from Radical Bowling Technologies. 
Don't watch the sky, watch THIS!

This ball is certainly unique!  The textured pearl allows the ball to start to develop early like a solid, but then snaps on the back-end like a pearl.  I'm able to throw this with a lot of faith because with the early read from the ball I don't worry about throwing it through the break point like I do with other pearls. 

I drilled mine with the pin under my ring finger, and I love throwing this on fresh oil.  It can get a little tricky as the lanes start to breakdown, however, that's due to my layout choice.  I think if I had put the pin above my ring finger instead, it would blend out the transition on the lane better.  All in all, I would still recommend this ball to anyone looking for something versatile.

If you're expecting a traditional pearl skid-flip reaction then you'll be surprised by this ball.  The new textured coverstock applied to this pearl Conspiracy creates a very unique ball reaction.  This is a ball that gets down the lane easily but shows more bite in the midlane and a smoother, yet powerful motion overall than most pearls.

Mine is drilled 45 x 4 1/4 x 35 and for me with slower ball speed and an average rev rate it fits my game and my arsenal very well. Most recently I've used it on WB Montreal (41') and it performs beautifully.

This is a really versatile ball that if you're looking for a more controllable motion than most pearls, yet do not want to sacrifice hitting power, this is worth your investment.  As always, Radical is at the top of the technology curve and this ball, with its brand new textured coverstock, demonstrates that commitment to developing the best products for all bowlers.

Length: 43


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):  THS


Likes:  This is one of my favorite Conspiracy so far.  It gets great length through the front, but the textured pearl picks up nicely in the midlane to not be very snappy when it sees the friction. 

Dislikes: None Actually!

Layout: 60 x 2.5 x 40

Intentions: To compliment my DV8 Frequency that has the same layout. The utilization of a 2.5″ pin to pap was intended to limit the flare and give me more overall control.

Results: This has been an absolutely incredible 1-2 punch with the DV8 Frequency at the top of the bag for myself. The TP-1 (Textured Pearl Ė 1) cover is able to push through the front part of the lane without issue while providing enough traction in the midlane to avoid blowing the breakpoint. I did crack the polish with an extremely worn 2k pad by hand just to bring the breakpoint a touch closer to the foul line. On higher friction lanes, Iím able to use this on fresh to control the over / under I typically see from cliffed house shots. The Conspiracy Theory has also made for a great transition ball, especially if Iím starting with the DV8 Frequency and still need a ball to be a bit more forward off the spot while being cleaner through the fronts.

Itís hard to go a night without seeing one of these on a rack, and not my own. This ball seems to be a magnet to the pocket and strikes a ton. Iíve seen wild success with almost every style of bowler. Mine is drilled 70x4 3/4x30 and itís amazing.

My expectation is the ball would begin lose steam the further left I got, but even at the end of a 4 game set and sliding at 37, the ball was still clean enough through the heads and my hitting power wasnít compromised. The hype was real.

Word of advice, the color scheme on the ball can take a bit to get used to. Your eyes may become distracted trying to read the ball motion until you get used to it.

Fresh House Shot (High Street)


Having been with Ebonite for the last 7 years, I havenít had any experience with other brands, so forgive me as being new to Brunswick, DV8, and Radical I make comparisons to the ball reactions with which Iím familiar. The cover on the Conspiracy Theory is textured pearl, which is something I havenít thrown before, and why I decided to try some surface on it.  This ball has a different roll than anything Iíve used.  It has a very readable strong forward rolling motion throughout the entire lane which I really liked.  I was able to get lined up just to the left of the oil line with a smooth motion at the break point.  The traction in the midlane was very noticeable.  With the surface adjustment, there is no squirt in this ball, and it didnít burn up if I hit the dry a little soon.  Shots slightly left of target still finished strongly through the pins.  The overall motion off the spot wasnít quite an arc, but it wasnít really a hockey stick look either. It was something in between. The ball began to burn up a little after a couple games. Because the Theory is so readable, it will tell you when itís time for a switch. I like this ball a lot, and think I will have good luck using it on flatter patterns as well as slicker league patterns.  For more information, check out
