The high revving, high flaring HORNcore engine wrapped with the very  aggressive AgRS solid reactive coverstock, is the biggest hooking ball we have  produced to date. The Raging bull is the perfect choice for longer and heavier  oil conditions.

Length: 40-41 ft   


Volume: medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS AMF HPL




My Info:

PAP: 5 1/4 over 1/2 up

Rev Rate: 400-425 RPM

Layout: 55 x 5 x 65


The Raging Bull is Seismic's newest and strongest high performance ball to date. This ball is all about stomping through the oil and charging into the pins. There is nothing "weak" about this thing.


with my layout, what i got was medium-high flare, great midlane read, and enough energy to recover from almost anywhere on the back part of the lane.


I personally think you can use this ball on alot of different conditions with the right surface tweaks, but the heavy and long oil patterns is where the Raging Bull really shines. It blends out any over/under condition I have encountered because of how it reald the midlane. The Raging Bull may be strong, but it is the definition of smooth.


Check out the layout picture and my YouTube video on the Raging Bull!

Seismic Raging Bull  


Pin Length---- 1 ½ - 2

Starting Top Weight---- 2.5 oz

Ball Weight---- 15







Ball Speed----16mph




Grit---- OOB Finish



Length---- 38”

Type (Wall, Xmas Tree, Sport)---- Kegel easy Street  




Length----- gets through the oil with ease

Back End---- yea it has it.  

Overall Hook---- More then anything else  I have.  




Likes----- Love that game one on league night I can play off of what everyone else is doing. If they are all playing down the boards I can play deeper with it. If everyone is in deep I have been able to stay outside and play down the boards with a little more speed. Makes an aggressive charge to the pocket  from any where you play and keeps its energy into the pins. Check out Seismic Facebook page:


Dislikes---- Not much of a dislike but I have to switch to the Raging Bull Charged or Blackout about half way through second game to keep ball on the right side.

SPECS: 70X4X40 1000 Abralon surface

Finally used this monster enough to post something of a review on it.

Shark Pattern: I grabbed Raging Bull and wanted to give it a try on a Heavier pattern. Raging Bull was almost to much for the shark. Playing 22 out to about ten with my hand backed out of the ball. Raging Bull was running back and hitting hi flush break point was just about at 43 feet very strong move off the spot even with all the volume on the pattern. Moved right and played straighter trying to work the out of bounds part of the pattern and was very surprised. Playing 17 out 8 and the Raging Bull was still flying off the spot the volume to the right didn't even slow it down if I missed right. Very Impressed for a pattern that for me has always played kind of tight Raging Bull opened it up and made it far more playable.

Motion:Surprisingly angular for the surface grit just goes left off the spot. Never quits rolling all the way through the deck.

Comparison: To the Critical theory (CT) drilled pin under bridge mb swung two inches from thumb OOB Surface. CT is earlier and more angular off the spot. Raging Bull is later and a bit smoother. I would consider both balls to be angular the CT a bit more so than the Raging Bull. I found the Raging Bull to be more predictable, off the spot than the CT. The CT was almost to strong and angular. Both pieces handle oil volume about the same.

Comparison: RED Taboo, Drilled pin over bridge surface at 1000. Again both balls are angular and off the spot I found the Raging Bull to be a little longer before the break point than the Red Taboo. Both handled oil very similarly I think the Raging Bull carried a little better and again was more consistent shot after shot.

HIT/CARRY: Just like the RBC the Raging Bull just shreds the rack shot after shot. Keeps pins low on the deck and moves them around very well. Messengers are plenty.

OVERALL: I imagined this ball to be a little smoother than how it turned out, I wasn't quite ready for the amount of hook potential this ball had but I am pleasantly surprised. I like the angularity yet consistent quality of the roll seems to take the best aspects of the Requiem and AfterMath and combined them into one ball. IMO Raging Bull is one of the most under rated oil balls on the market. Having thrown both the Critical Theory and Raging Bull next to each other I have to say Raging Bull gives a much better look no question. So if you are looking for a oil ball step outstide the Normal selection and Try the Raging Bull!!
