Radical's The Hitter is the second bowling ball to benefit from their cutting-edge computer-generated motion core design program. Building on the success of the Outer Limits, the inaugural beneficiary of this program, the Hitter raises the bar with its performance. At its core, the Hitter features an asymmetrical design with an RG of 2.488, a differential of 0.053, and an intermediate differential of 0.015. Complementing this dynamic core is the newly developed Utility Cover, a versatile formulation that harmonizes seamlessly with the Hitter's core dynamics. Testing has revealed that The Hitter possesses the strength to tackle medium to heavy oil volumes while maintaining a potent and unbroken motion down the lane. Experience the versatility and power of The Hitter on the lanes like never before.

Likes:  This is truly a Big League Hitter.  I love the solid Utility cover and the pins stay low with the low RG.  The ball is really smooth and fits in my bag between the Hammer Extreme Envy and the Hammer Dark Web Hybrid.  This ball will lend it self to the first ball out of the bag on the fresh.

Radical Hitter
I’m a left handed bowler. My ball speed is around 14.5 mph. My Rev rate is around 275 rpms. My layout choice is 80 x 2 1/4 x 45. My opinion this is the greatest ball I have in my bag. It’s not the biggest hooking ball. But it is a very reliable ball. If I need to play up the boards. It works well. If I need to swing it a little it works well. It’s like the ball does whatever I need it to do. It has a small arc motion to it. I think Radical bowling technologies not it out of the part with this ball.

The Hitter – House Patterns and Sport Patterns

The Hitter is a sleeper ball to me, I haven’t seen a lot of them in the area, and I really don’t think The Hitter is given much of a chance to be great.  I love the roll, I love the versatility.  Low rev bowler to High rev bowler The Hitter is really good.  One thing that might be a draw back depending what type of bowler you are.  The Hitter can lane polish and change shape sooner then later.  However, their are plenty of pads out there to help keep the roll true for a least a three game set.  I like to compare this to a GB2 stronger and through the pins better in my opinion.  I would also compare it to the Reax, the Reax was a little ahead of its time in my opinion, bowlers were into the HUGE hook and didn’t really want anything mellow.  The Reax and The Hitter could be like Steve Rodgers (Reax) then Captain America (The Hitter).  I would suggest after 3-9 games take a wet 2000/3000 to The Hitter then watch it work.  Take care of the bowling balls they tend to take care of you.
