The Radical Rave On bowling ball combines performance and value for all types of bowlers. The symmetric core and hybrid cover with high performance friction enhancers make this hooking ball a great match on medium oil lane conditions.
ALL COLORS DO VARY SOMEWHAT FROM THE PICTURE SHOWN
The Rave On is the new piece in the EZ-Use line. It use the same core as the original Rave but wrap with a new, hybrid coverstock that features some of the popular friction enhancers that have been used in the Guru series.
In my case, I wanted that ball to fit between my Ridiculous and my Rave. The result is perfect. I drilled it 55x4x45. It's a bit stronger than the original with more downlane reaction. I adjust the surface a couple of times at 2k or 4k just to make it reads the mids sooner. Like any of his predecessor, the coverstock is really friendly to any changes.
That ball is perfect for any bowler who wants a great ball for THS or to add a new piece in their arsenal.
Specs: Left Handed, 15 mph, ~400 rev rate. Drilled my Rave On 50* x 5" x 30*. For me, this puts the pin above my bridge and CG slightly off center.
The Rave On is the next release after the original Rave in the EZ Use Line. The Rave was an exceptionally clean ball that allowed me (as a lefty) to get in and watch the ball tip on the back. The Rave On is like the Rave, just more on the back of the lane.
I found the Rave to be an exceptional compliment between my Rack Attack line and the Primo. The Rave On is now fitting a void where the Primo (or the Primo Solid) is too much ball, but the Rave might have started burning up as it made its way through the pins. The Rave On allows me to open the lane up more, when their has been an oil embargo at your center. The Rave On, with its hybrid pearl cover, allows me to get farther right than the original Rave, and remain farther left than I would need to be with the Primo. The cover also allows me to play direct, near the dirt on a house pattern, if there is no place to go by moving my feet right. This pearl cover still gets the ball down lane with enough pop on the back to get the pins where they need to be.....laying down!
I didn't think I'd like an entry level ball more than the Rave....Having drilled the Rave and Rave On very similar, I can use the Rave On as a tremendous compliment to the Rave!
I purchased the Rave On primarily for use during league. I went with Mo's "most versatile" layout which put the pin above the ring finger and the CG about 3/4 right of centerline). The Rave On has proven to be much more than I expected. The ball motion reminds me of the Grease Monkey Whack and is perfect for medium oil conditions. The Rave On is a little later and sharper than the original Rave and stronger overall. If fits nicely between the Rack Attacks and the Primos in my arsenal. This ball performs well above its price point!
