Title: Zing
Post by: BallReviews-scodaddy21 on July 18, 2019, 09:21:50 AM
Add a little zing to your game with the Radical Zing! high performance bowling ball! The core designed for the Zing! was done with the Katana in mind but with more dynamics offering the driller more options. This ball is wrapped with Radical's proven Forged 2 coverstock. This combination creates Radical's desired ball motion of being very aggressive off the spot with a big backend reaction. The Zing! also utilizes Radical's DynamiCore technology that increases the balls coefficient of restitution which causes the pins to reflect off the ball faster resulting in a higher stike percentage.

Core: Asymmetric w/ DynamiCore
Coverstock: Forged 2 Solid

It's time for Lane Side Reviews to take the newest from Radical Bowling Technologies to the lanes, and its not a stretch to say that the #ZING is #NOJOKE.

I have been waiting on this ball and Radical finally got it with this one.   The Beyond Ridicolous is RIDICOLOUS strong.  The Beyond Ridicolous reminds me of the Ridicolous Asym but much stronger movement on the backend.  I laid mine just like my Asym to give me that 1-2 combo look, but the Beyond Ridicolous is definitely a arrow stronger on the backend and more continuous.  If you need a super strong solid, the Beyond Ridicolous is the ball.

Ball#1  Amazing ball for a fresh THS with a heavier volume in the middle.  I'm able to play inside of everyone and have plenty of recovery.  I've seen very few balls able to play 20 to 10 in this house and have any hitting power.  This Zing has power to spare and does not leave corner pins.

Ball #2  This is my "ball down" Zing if you can call it that.  It is still a monster capable of playing on the fresh but has a better look once the lanes open up.  The Zing is so versatile and responsive to surface adjustments you could easily fill your entire arsenal with Zings.

The "!" after Zing is the best adjective for it!!  I've never had an asymmetrical solid ball that will continue through the pins the way this thing does.  It still starts to break early like all solids do, but I can't say enough about the continuing amount of energy it seems to have all the way off the pin deck.

I drilled mine pin above the bridge as I was hoping to not have it hook too early, which this layout has been successful in doing (and it matches great with the continuation at the end of the lane).  I've used it on medium and long patterns with really good success.  If you're looking for the next ball to add some "zing" to your game, then you're in the right place!!

 COMMENTS

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 Zing is as strong a core/ cover combination as Iíve thrown in a number of years. I thought the Choice Solid was strong, but the Zing takes it to a new level. This ball loves oil.  Where I could stand left and send the Verge to the friction, the Zing did not respond as strongly.  As long as I was lined up fairly parallel with the oil line and didnít hit the dry early, the Zing looked pretty good.  It read the midlane strongly, made a smooth hockey stick type motion at the breakpoint, and rolled strongly through the pins. I definitely did not have normal house shot area due to the strength of this big core asymmetric ball.  I donít normally have a great reaction with this type of equipment on house patterns.  I think bowlers with hand who can start a ball deep in the soup and send it to the friction will have a pretty good look with the Zing.  Iím looking forward to trying the Zing on some PBA patterns. The heavier volumes and more evenly distributed oil patterns is where I can get the benefit of these pieces that fit into the Ďbeastí category.  If youíre looking for a super strong asymmetric ball to add to your arsenal, you should definitely consider the Zing.
