INSTANT $5.95 BONUS INFO
The Radical Bonus Pearl reactive mid-performance bowling ball continues the successful Bonus line of bowling balls. This ball features the Bonus Symmetric core along with the Forged Pearl coverstock to offer more length as well as a sharper motion. The Forge Pearl coverstock is known for its huge backend recovery and fast response to friction. This bowling ball makes a great benchmark ball.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The Bonus line is as good as it sounds. I recently shot 300 with the solid and have had great success with the pearl too. This is a great ball for a house shot because of its forgiveness going down the lane and stored hitting power when it gets there. Having the Solid and Pearl benefit each other because when the Solid starts reading too early, switching to the pearl is a great option to have in the bag.
Smooth, aggressive, predictable
Needs drier conditions
Light to medium oil
One of my favorite balls recently has been the Radical Bonus so naturally I needed to try its next of kin in the Bonus Pearl. I drilled mine pin down and for me it is giving a shape that I've lacked in a pearl ball. It is an earlier rolling, more predictable pearl that looks fantastic on the fresh. I tend to always shy away from pearls early in my league but this came out of my bag and happily mowed pins down with the greatest of ease. I definitely notice that even though it rolls a bit earlier, it is still a pearl and its holding onto a bit more energy than my solid balls. That's resulting in no troubles with corner pins which is making for quite a happier bowler and bigger scores
Drilled my BONUS Pearl with a 50,4”, 35 layout, which is the same layout as my BONUS solid, as I wanted to get the same motion as the lanes transitioned. I really like the smooth and predictable ball motion these symmetrical balls give me, a must have on tougher conditions.
Radical did an amazing job creating a pearl compliment to the original Bonus. The original Bonus has a strong cover for a symmetrical ball, and when that ball burns up, I can make a small move left with my feet, and this ball will clear the front of the lane, and respond hard to the friction. I can pick up right where I left off with the Bonus solid and keep on striking. The Dynamacore and great pearl cover send it into the pocket with extreme force, and it throws the pins EVERYWHERE. The Radical Bonus Pearl can fit anyone's game, and I would recommend it for all styles of bowlers. My drill pattern would be 3.75 x 35
sport patterns, light volumes
Here is my take on the new Radical Bonus Pearl. The Radical Bonus Pearl features the same low RG/low diff. core found in the original Bonus wrapped by a black pearl Forged Pearl Cover. Factory Finish is 1500 Siaair/Crown Factory Compound. Like other Radical balls, it features a 2 year warranty.My “vitals” are a 405 rev rate with a PAP of 5 9/16 over and 1/8 up. I drilled a Bonus Pearl with a 60 x5 ¼ x 70 layout. I have used this ball at factory finish and at 3000 Abralon. I have tried the Bonus Pearl on THS, an unnamed 40 foot Sport pattern and Kegel Tungsten.Low RG/low diff. type equipment are usually great tournament pieces and give excellent control of the lane, especially on sport patterns. Compared to a similarly drilled Bonus, the Bonus Pearl’s shape is similar…but a little longer and stronger. Like with the original Bonus, I expect the Bonus Pearl to be in play on medium/shorter sport patterns, wet/dry patterns or broken down sport patterns in that distance range. I think the key to the Bonus Pearl is that it be used on medium to lighter volumes. Personally, I also liked the 3000 Abralon surface as it made the ball motion a little more predictable. See your local proshop for more on the Bonus Pearl.
The Bonus Pearl Is a GRAND SLAM. The black ball along with the Orange Logos looks phenomenal going down the lane. I drilled mine 3 ½ x 25 so almost the max flip layout. This layout is a bit more aggressive than my go to symmetrical layout and I was not at all disappointed with the reaction. With this layout and the Orange Loogs you can easily see the 3 phases of ball motion as the ball goes down the lane. I am a huge fan of this. The ball eases through the fronts and revs up in the mid lane ( a couple feet longer than the solid Bonus) and just explodes on the backend. This Bonus is in my number 1 bag and is my new benchmark symmetrical. Get yours today!
The Radical Bonus Pearl will fit a void in my arsenal very well. It is super clean, very smooth rolling pearl ball. I like to keep my lines in front of me if I can. This ball will let me do that. It is a little stronger than my Counter Attack Pearl but has less coverage by far over all my other pearls. It is very similar to the old Track Tundra. It is a nice step down from the Bonus solid which quickly became one of my favorites. This one will be in my bag quite a while.
The Bonus Pearl does not disappoint. I have it as similar motion to the Squatch Pearl but overall stronger and a little sharper off the spot. The continuation through the pins is amazing. This will be a great ball down option from the Results Plus.
Clean, predictable, shelf appeal
not for heavy oil
short or light oil, late on beat up lanes
Very clean and very predictable. Short oil patterns and late in tournaments this ball is a must for the bag. If your rev dominate or have lower ball speeds this ball will be a great buy.
