I have long been a fan of the Incognito line, and the Informer appears to be no different. This ball has quickly earned the “strong/angular solid asym” spot in my bag.

As is with most of my equipment, I chose a longer pin (5-1/4” pin to PAP, pin above bridge) with a slightly stronger MB position. In comparison to the Incognito Solid and Pearl (both are 4-3/4” pin to PAP, pin up, medium MB position), the Informer is a touch more aggressive off the spot than the Solid and appears to be a very good complement to the Pearl.

This ball might not make it out of the bag too often (as I typically encounter more medium-light patterns), but I know it’ll be ready when the time comes.

Informer

I’m a left handed bowler with a ball speed around 14 mph. My Rev rate is around 275 rpms.  I recently punched up the radical bowling technologies Informer.  The layout I put on this ball is 60 x 5 x 75. I must say this ball is very aggressive. It comes with a 1500 grit finish. I wasn’t able to use that finished. So I put a 3000 grit finish on it. I believe this ball is a great addition to the radical bowling technologies line. It’s like a incognito on steroids.

LANE CONDITION

Length: 40

Volume: 27 ml

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): Brunswick sports pattern


COMMENTS

Likes: I drilled this solid asymmetric ball with a 4-1/2" pin to PAP and wide locator to fill a gap in my arsenal. I was looking to have a big ball that would that would pick up early and have a smooth controllable motion down lane.  This ball did exactly what I asked. It continues through the pin deck very well. Will work well for me on fresh oil and sports shots when I need to control the pocket. Nice addition for me.

Dislikes:

Radical Informer
Layout: 45 x 4.5” x 70
Surface: Box finish

I have thrown the Radical Informer on (3) different oil patterns and really like the motion it gives me for a strong, asymmetrical solid. This ball has an updated Incognito core, and enhanced TS-1 additive to the cover for more bite in the oil, and DynamiCore for increased durability and hitting power! On a typical house shot, I was able to move inside and keep the ball in the oil longer, taking advantage of the strong cover/core combo. Pin carry was excellent even with the lower angle playing inside, from 21-13. On a medium sport pattern (2014 Norwegian Open), I was able to play in around 14-15 and migrate further in as the pattern broke down. I also used it on a short, heavier sport pattern (Stockholm), and had great success playing around 4-5 and letting that big weight block tip the ball into the pocket, as the aggressive cover allowed the ball to roll early and set up perfectly. This ball is a necessary part of your bag for sport patterns, and if you like to play inside on heavier blend house shots, let her rip! The Radical Informer is available now from Moore’s Pro Shop, and pro shops everywhere!
