It seems that most house shots now are fairly light in oil and lower end balls are working better for most people.  The people who buy balls advertised as he most hook are not seeing it, because they burn up too soon.  I wonder if weaker cover asym balls will be the next trend to give us the pop needed without burning up?

Idk where you guys bowl where everything is “light oil”, here in Chicagoland when I sub on house everything is cliffed. It makes sense to get the stronger balls, take a step left and play the puddle.

Most of the places I've seen like that are East coast. It's like there's a oil shortage.

I know here out West it's more an issue with friction. Most places around seem to be higher friction surfaces. Luckily we have a monthly scratch tournament at a house that is lower friction so stronger covers and/or quicker response to friction is actually needed

Chicks dig the hook ball.


Several years ago I worked with a junior bowler who had a lot of potential, but he tried to hook the entire lane every time he threw the ball.  I asked him if he'd rather have better scores or the big hook, he said he'd take the hook.  When I asked him why he said "it impresses the girls".  He never did fully develop to his potential.  --  JohnP

But the $64000 question is... Did it really impress the girls? Asking for a friend. :P

Why no Dynamicore in these? If that makes the difference Brunswick says it does, why not put it in the Radical pro level balls? They did in the DV8 Pitbull Bark

The overseas version, Katana Izoy...(sp.) has the dynamicore in it is what i was told by a friend and by all the marketing material with the ball. As to why they wouldn't start putting the dynamicore in the new 'Legend", thats something newguy could answer.

It's coming. Radical will have the Dynamicore technology next year I believe. Something about it being too late in the production/development cycle to add it in now, and they wanted to wait and see if there were any negative side-effects before jumping in on it. Apparently there are none.

He did seem to always have quite a few girls hanging around.  I've lost track of him now, but the last I knew he was living the single life and enjoying it.  Hope that helps your "friend".  --  JohnP

Mental note: Need more hook.

No disrespect but you know this how ?

I own the company. But no disrespect taken

Just now joining the Radical Revolution! Liked the Conspiracy so much I've bought a few more to try different layouts on and pre ordered the Katana Legend. Love the youtube channel too. I've mostly thrown EBI stuff so I'm still doing a lot of research on your lineup. Now I may have to try the Squatch too hahahahaha.
