Radical Bowling Technologies Announces 2 New Balls

Radical Technologies announces the introduction of the Guru Supreme. “We all know that the Guru (61 hook rating by independent testers) set the bar by which all future balls are rated and that the Guru Master raised the bar even higher (62.5 hook rating by independent testers). Well, we are happy to announce that the Guru Supreme takes hook to an unbelievably new level.”
The new Guru Supreme is Black / Light Blue Solid, with a finish of 500, 1500 Siaair Micro Pad wrapped around the Guru Asymmetric core with Offset and Scoop Technology.

Also from Radical: “Many will ask what is too much hook, and the Guru Supreme should help us find out. Using our proven Guru core, we amped up the ball motion with the use of a new resin formulation, and the results open up a new world of performance for the Radical product line. Our intensive market research and sales data indicate that Hook sells, and we are very excited about what the Guru Supreme can offer to bowlers who are looking for stronger ball motion. The Guru Supreme…more hook and more Radical than ever before.”

The story about the Chicago Bear’s Devin Hester and a new ball from Radical: “Ridiculous.”

When a group of ball testers all look at each other after throwing the ball and say that a ball is ridiculous, you have only two things left to do…name it and build it.

The new Ridiculous delivers a new ball motion that is sure to turn heads. The goal at Radical was to impact backend reaction the way the Guru line has impacted the hook dimension of the game, and with the Ridiculous, Radical is pleased to deliver a new performance ball that delivers insanely strong backend reaction. Radical reports: “We have seen it and tested it, and we are now delivering it. It is time to get Ridiculous!”

The MOTIV Revolt Havoc

The announcement for the new MOTIV Revolt™ Havoc: 

“The new MOTIV Revolt™ Havoc is a devastating weapon for medium-heavy oil with the unique ability to read the lane early, yet provide unbelievable continuation. It's a ball motion that seemed impossible...until now.”  

Pretty heady stuff, but their recent High Performance offerings have compared well to the other manufacturers HP balls. Vanquish core from the Revolt series this ball is topped with the Helix coverstock finished to 3000 grit (500/1000/2000). 

Further MOTIV suggests: “Because the Revolt™ Havoc is incredibly strong, it is an obvious fit for speed dominant and low rev players. And because it has the unique ability to still provide tremendous continuation, the ball is also a versatile weapon for competitive bowlers that have higher rev rates. While these players typically experience a weak finish from strong equipment, they will experience outstanding continuation from the Revolt™ Havoc on higher volume patterns.” 

Not much more can be said. World Wide Release Date is October 14th, 2015.

Hammer To Unleash Bad Intentions in October

Hammer introduces the BAD INTENTIONS hybrid. The overall strength rating of the Bad Intentions Hybrid is a complement to the Bad Intentions. The NEW cover and finish changes allow this one to be more aggressive down lane.

The 3000 Abralon TM finish gives this new release the potential to perform extremely well on both medium and oily patterns.

Hammer reports: "The Spheroid Core is a combination of strength and control. The low Rg core system gives you the revs you are looking for while the symmetrical design offers extreme versatility."

The NEW Hammer Juiced Extreme Hybrid cover creates less traction in the oil compared to its solid counterpart but makes up for it at the back end.

Hammer added their NEW Tough Tech, Carbon Fiber reinforcement to the coverstock. WWRD is October 13, 2015.

Hammer also adds a new HAMMER BLACK Urethane in October. There isn’t a person on this planet that will argue against the fact that Hammer made the best urethane bowling balls back in the day. There is no doubt in our minds bowlers looking for the ball reaction that dominated the 80’s and early 90’s will find it in our new Black Urethane! 

The overall strength of the Black Urethane is perfect for medium to light oil patterns. This throwback will really excel on shorter oil patterns. The 500 Abralon gives ultimate traction in the oil which translates to ultimate control at the back end of the lane.

Hammer reports: “Our new LED core design is a modern version of the traditional light bulb shape that was so popular back in the day.”

Adding: “Our Urethane cover is the main ingredient in this masterpiece. Unlike modern covers that produce a violent reaction at the breakpoint, this proven staple is all about giving the user ultimate control of the entire lane.”
