Radical Bowling Technologies Counter Attack Solid uses a solid Ai 20 coverstock and a symmetric core to create a ball that has a strong mid lane hooking motion on medium-heavy lane conditions. This ball was created to follow in the footsteps of the original Rack Attack Solid bowling ball.
Lighter volume house patterns, burnt house patterns, shorter sport patterns
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Speed: 17.9RPM: 480PAP: 5 7/8 RT x 2 1/4 DNNo-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. Tremendous slouch.Light to medium-light volume pattern beast!The Counter Attack Solid and Pearl follow in the footsteps of the Radical Cult favorites, the Rack Attacks. Remade but upgrading upon the originals, the Counter Attack balls feature the Ai 20 coverstock formulation, it is the same exact cover formulation used in the original Rack Attacks. The core design is very similar, we have made a few subtle changes to enhance the continuation through the pins with the Rack Attack 2 Symmetric core, making these an improved version of the original Rack Attacks. Our goal was to create a replacement to the original Rack Attacks and to increase the versatility of the Radical Technologies performance line up.With an out of box surface of 500/1000/3000 and the core/cover combination, matched with my layout of 4.25x5.25x2.25, the Counter Attack Solid gets length and a smooth, continuous motion on medium-light volume patterns just as it’s intended by Radical Bowling Technologies. I’ve also had some good looks for lane motion on shorter sport patterns. I have better options for me to begin a night of league bowing but i have used it to start, and it’s not my A-game, but I can move to the right with my feet and targets and the Counter Attack Solid will get me the arcing, continuous motion. I just need to keep my speed consistent as sometimes I’ll sail past the breakpoint if I’m too fast.Purple. Solid ...and with the gold lettering this ball just looks great.Coming in at Radical Bowling Technologies ‘EZ-Use’ level, the Counter Attack Solid is exactly that ... easy to use (and SUPER AFFORDABLE!) which makes it a great option for beginner bowlers looking for that first ball when they want to learn to control a curve or for the experienced bowler looking for something special when the lanes are either beat up, you’re rolling on a short pattern or looking for a ball to play a tighter line and not overreact.Be well, rip racks ...and shred pins.
Great ball for those drier house shots or when you need to blend out those patterns that have broken down. I find this ball to be very smooth overall and a consistent motion. I would not recommend drilling this ball weak unless you are very rev dominant. This ball is a weaker core/cover combination and is meant to be drilled stronger to get that great reaction. I play a litter farther left with this ball than my Counter Attack Pearl.
Counter Attacks - As this was my first dip into the "Radical" pool, I wanted to get balls that I would be able to use frequently. Being a Senior player with a rev rate around 250 - 300, I decided that the Counter Attacks would be a good start. Having a 2.575 RG and Diff of .023, these 2 pieces are very close to the EBI equipment I had been using for league. Both the Solid and the Pearl utilize and updated version of the Rack Attack Core along with the respective Ai-20 covers. Both balls were laid out identical at 70 x 4.5 x 35 making it not only easy to compare to each other but to my EBI equipment as well.Counter Attack SOLID - The Solid provides me with the smooth rolling start through the heads which I prefer when opening up on the fresh. The symmetrical core allowed me more versatility to adjust in regards to hand positions without effectively losing carry. On my drier house patterns and has proven to not overreact yet is not afraid of patterns with medium oil.I believe the cover will be receptive to any changes although I have strictly kept it "as is" with only typical lane shine and cleaning after every match use. In the very short time I have used the Solid, the lowest match I've had has been 690. If you are looking for a solid, low diff piece that has smooth motion the Counter Attack Solid is one to try.
Light oil ball

The Counter Attack Solid is an updated version of the Rack Attack Solid with more continuation. I drilled it 70 X 4 X 40. On dry lanes i get plenty of length with a smooth arching continuous motion. Great ball to have in your bag when the lanes are completely broken down or a light oil pattern. I highly recommend this ball.

Counter attack solid I'm a left handed bowler. My balls speed is around 14 1/2 mph. My Rev Rate is around 275-300 rpm. My axis tilt is around 13 degrees. I recently purchased this ball. The layout I put in it is 60 x 4 x 40. For me this is a great layout for a house shot. This ball has a low differential to start with. Which makes this ball very clean thru the fronts and continuous on the back end. For the bowlers that don't have a lot of revs. Like me. You will be able to keep the ball in front of you and play up the boards. For the high rev players. I believe you'll like it also. It should allow you not have to move as deep with it. I believe this is great addition to the Radical Technologies line. Robert Way
The Counter Attack Solid is the perfect ball for short patterns or late in blocks when you need a smooth reacting motion. I had the opportunity to throw it on the 35' Del Ballard pattern and with this ball I was able to keep my lines in front of me and get similar coverage to my urethane but with better carry. When you get late in blocks and opening the lane is not your thing, this will be a great go to ball. It is similar in coverage to the Track Tundra Solid but maybe a hair sooner and smoother. Good ball to have in the arsenal.

Can I get this ball with a 3-4 pin placement
Hi SMS! You can request this under the weight selection. We can check with the warehouse in regards to this and see what they have once the order is laced.
I’m wondering what ball would be ideal a bowler who’s speed is around 7-9mph. Looking for a great Christmas gift but u sure which ball would work better. She bowls 3 times a week on different lane patterns from light oil-heavy oil which makes it that more difficult.
With a slower ball speed you would normally want to get a ball that has more length like a pearl cover with a polished finish out of the box. This ball would react a little earlier on the lanes and it may not be a good match for this ball speed. Here are some pearl options for medium oil that you may check into: https://www.bowling.com/shopping/all/bowling-balls/all?lane-conditions=54&coverstock=52
Is this a good ball for short-oil lanes
The duller finish will not be ideal for short oil patterns. You may look more to the Counter Attack Pearl.
