Description: The Reax Pearl is Radical's addition to the Top Shelf performance level. It is the perfect compliment to the Reax solid. The Reax Pearl features the same dynamic core as in the solid but is now encapsulated in a newly formulated pearlized cover. This combination of core and cover creates a greater angle of entry than the original Reax, more angle means more strikes. "Donítí be left behind ....Reax."

COMMENTS
Likes: The Reax Pearl is the perfect compliment to the Reax. The Pearl gives that additional length in the midlane that you look for when the Reax starts to pick up early. The Pearl gives the same predictable motion each time down the lane as the Reax does. The Pearl keeps the pins low and pushes them back just like the Reax. Very happy with this piece and look forward to the next release from Radical Family.

Dislikes: None at this time.

COMMENTS

 This ball is very clean thru the heads and has a lot of angle on the
backend. It allows me to play multiple angles on many different
patterns. Surprisingly this is the first pearl that I've had that
allows me to twerk the cover and it still be a go to ball. One of the
best high end pearls on the market today, if not the best. When
working in the pro shop if a customer wanted a high end pearl I would
absolutely tell them to get this ball. Radical hit the mark with this
one.

COMMENTS

Likes: The Reax Pearl is a great compliment to the original Reax in that this ball creates a highly more-defined breakpoint down lane and has more of a back end presence.  Quick surface adjustments can help change that breakpoint shape or midlane responsiveness if needed.

A strong ball for those that need a lot of ball motion but versatile enough to change layouts to achieve a wide variety of different looks.  Look at the drill sheets that come with this ball and decide what you need...if you follow the drill sheet, you'll get what they advertise!

My pearl has a mid lane layout in it. very impressive ball. It is clean through the fronts.
It goes a little longer than the solid. It has a sharper brake point.This ball compliments the solid Reax.
