The Radical Crypto introduces a core design that will make this bowling ball a must-have. This symmetrical core is wrapped with the Ai45 Solid Reactive coverstock which starts hooking at the mid-lane but also has great continuation through the pins. The strong cover on this ball makes it a versatile symmetrical option on medium to heavy oil conditions.
Stats: PAP 4 over ¾ up, 15 mph, 18 tilt, 275 revs. I drilled my Crypto 50x4.5x30. This ball reads the lanes early midlane for me, so I have been saving it when I deal with more oil. On lanes with less oil, this still maintains energy and has a smooth overall reaction even as I move left.
The Radical Crypto is probably my favorite symmetric solid that I have drilled in a long time. My layout was 55 x 4.5" x 30, to give it a benchmark reaction for me from this upper end solid, and this ball did not disappoint. It gives me an old school, heavy rolling solid, chews through the mids, and smiles doing it. Where this one separates itself is how it continues through the pins all the way into the deck. There is not much deflection from the Crypto, which comes in handy when oil pushes down, or you have a medium-heavy pattern where you have to play inside with less entry angle. This ball really shines when you can give it 100% and watch it just slap out corner after corner. I have used it on ABT #3 sport oil pattern and two different length house shots, 39 ft. and 41 ft., and have had success on all of them. I look forward to hitting up tournament season with this one! If you are a one ball a year type of bowler, are rev challenged, or want that extra tool in your tournament bag, you HAVE to get a Crypto. It is more ball than the Bonus Solid, but just under the Trailblazer Solid, in terms of overall hook and reaction for me.

The Crypto is the strongest symmetrical ball I have thrown in some time. Strongest sym in the Radical by far. This ball has great shelf appeal along with the colors looking good going down lane. I found it to be much earlier and several boards more hook than the Bigfoot.
