After months of studying and testing these are the results, the Radical Results. The Radical bowling ball company has produced a high performance ball that has a powerful motion as well as the continuation a shape that Radical is known for. This ball has an asymmetrical core with DynamiCore that is covered with TP1 (textured pearl) coverstock making it plenty strong for heavy oil but can be tweaked for medium oil.
The Results is flat out the most angular ball on the market. I was concerned with this much asymmetry that this ball might go forward too early and quit. There is no quit with this ball! It reads the midlane slightly and then hangs a left. The Results rarely goes forward and gets stronger with more surface. It is also nearly impossible to miss the breakpoint. Stand left throw right is what this ball specializes in. I can see this ball working for most styles with the proper drill pattern. If you want skid flip this ball flat out gives Results!
Whatever you do, do not let COVID hide this ball from you! The Radical Results is one amazing ball that should never leave your bag, league or tournament. The OOB finish with the pearl cover allows this ball to be a great transition ball or even to start with depending on the length and volume. Maybe even a soft rub of your favorite grit to help the ball turn the corner on your favorite pattern or shot. It is very clean and smooth through the heads and midlane but is strong off the spot. Drilled mine 60 x 4 3/4 x 30.
What I love about this ball is that there is no quit on the backend. I went with a longer pin to PAP distance specifically because I had heard good things how this ball will not quit and I wanted it to be used when there's more games on the lanes. I'm happy to say I got exactly what I wanted. Honestly this ball will be staying in my bag for a long time. The only change I had to make to it was allow some lane shine on the surface as it came too shiny for me and was going through the mid lane too much. Another great ball by Mo! Dont sleep on this just because of COVID!!!
Man, is the Results strong! This pearl is not afraid of oil and allows higher rev players to open up the lane once there is some friction. Lower rev players will love the results as soon as a bigger dull ball starts to hook too early and hits flat!
I'm a left handed bowler. My Rev rate is around 280 rpms. My ball speed is around 15 mph. I'm also a Radical Staffer. My opinion on this ball. I love this ball. It seems to work well on my house shot. Unfortunately with the COVID-19 virus.
I haven't been able to use it on different patterns. But I feel very confidently it will work great on on other patterns. The layout I put in it is 55 x 5 x 35. The surface finish is factory. I'm looking forward using this ball again once bowling centers are allowed to reopen.
This ball, initially, was somewhat problematic for me. It was highly erratic at the factory 500, 1000 siaair/compound finish. I ended up hitting it with 2000, and boy did it change! Became one of the best motions in my entire arsenal (in the bag, tote or not).
This thing is useable, this thing is versatile, this thing is overall, a great ball! I will likely try another one of these in a pin down drilling! Definitely worth a look!
The Radical Results is a very special ball, I've never seen this kind of angularity with such a big core. The cover seems to be very elastic, I brought it from shiny to dull, then back again, and it retained its shape and overall reaction very well. It's versatile but not overly sensitive to hand position changes, so I can play various angles from various zones without having perfect touch. The Results is a must have for league and tournament players.
The developers at Radical have created a ball that changes motion more dramatically than any ball in the past thanks to the increased intermediate differential. The ball also features Dynamicore and the versatile TP1 coverstock. This is definitely unlike any ball you have had before, and I highly recommend getting one.
I have drilled three Results so far: max flip 65x4x25, short pin 90x1.5x55, and midlane 20x4.25x25. As a lower rev bowler, my midlane Results is my go to for league as it picks up a little earlier, which is perfect on fresh or at tournaments with heavier volume patterns. As the lanes transition I can easily switch to my max flip which gives me the length I need without sacrificing backend motion. If the lanes start to dry out too much on league or if I am on a lower volume and/or shorter pattern during a tournament, I use my short pin Results. The short pin is very controllable, allowing me to play straighter despite using a stronger core ball.
Out of box I was very impressed with my newly drilled Radical Results. It has a much stronger move left than anything I've used before. The TP1 textured Pearl cover-stock lets the ball clear the heads easily but when it starts to pick up, wow. The asymmetric core is the strongest used in the Radical line yet which allows this beast to hit like a Mack truck. When bowling gets going again expect to see this ball allot on the PBA tour. Those guys like to open the angles and this ball feeds right into that game. With a little tweaking of the cover I think this ball can be used on quite a few conditions. This is a must have ball.
I'm a left handed bowler. My ball speed is around 14.5. My Rev rate is around 280rpms. I must say the is the most impressive ball I have ever own. Now I haven't had a chance to use it on sport patterns yet. Or even get to use it a lot due to the virus that has shut down everything. But when I was using it I was able to play anywhere on the lanes. Up the boards or swinging the lane. The pin carry is amazing. Now I will say it doesn't like dry lanes. But for the medium and heavy. It's a great ball. The layout I used is 55 x 4 1/2 x 35. This is a must have ball in your bag.
I drilled this one with a more versatile layout 45,4",35, in preparation for Reno. Very impressed with how angular it is even with this layout, I can only imagine the "Results" if I drilled it more

Radical Results Review
By: James Goulding III, Radical Regional Staff
Stats: Speed - 17.0; RPM - 335; AT - 20; AR - 65
Layout: 35 x 4.5" x 55 (no x-hole)
The Radical Results is a breakthrough in core technology. It features our TP-1 textured pearl cover, and newly developed core technology whereby they were able to increase the intermediate differential and lower the total differential to create a more dramatic motion off the spot but still maintain the continuation and shape that has made Radical the industries technology leader. I chose the layout I did to get the ball to roll forward a little later, and transition a bit slower to really utilize that longer, stronger roll phase of ball motion. I have used it on a couple of different patterns and here is my assessment:
42 ft. THS (typical house shot): The Results has been a very strong ball for the house shot in two centers I frequent. What I love about this ball is that it chews through the oil, makes a defined move off the spot, but is still predictable enough to control from shot to shot. The one thing to avoid with the Results is to get it into the friction too early, as this strong pearl asymmetrical ball will roar from out there and won't quit, and you could be looking at trouble. But, that aside, this ball is awesome. Very versatile to cover changes, I took mine from box finish, down to 1000 and back up to 3000 polished, and it responds to all of those very well. If you are seeing too much early hook, take the cover up to 4000, too much length, just sand it to 1000 or even 500, it takes to those changes extremely well! Do not be afraid to adjust the surface to your game, this ball can handle it!
39 ft. Don Carter pattern: I just rolled on this pattern a few weeks ago, and the Results was the best ball in my bag on the fresh. This pattern has been modified to have slightly less volume in the middle, so projection and speed control are key, and the Results at 2000 was the perfect matchup.
Radical has a winner with this ball! The science and technology behind this ball resulted in the most length and back end in any Brunswick ball I have ever drilled. This ball comes back from all parts of the lane, and hits insanely hard. The Results responds well to multiple surfaces changes. The Results is a great ball for a league bowler, or a tournament player. It belongs in everyone's bag!

I would like buy the Radical Results my track is low and my speed is 10 to 12 can you tell me the Drilling Layout is best for me3/3/2020 - By Chocolate#2
We are very sorry for the trouble on this. We do not have a way to recommend a drilling layout unfortunately. You may talk to your local proshop to get more information on this or you can reach out directly to Radical at the phone 866-828-7702.3/5/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff

Would this be a good ball for a low rev low speed bowler on a THS?3/27/2020 - By BowlerNick
Yes, this would be a good option for that. With the ball being a high performance ball rated for medium to heavier oil it would be strong enough to still give you good hook potential with a low rev rate on THS. Also with a slower ball speed you would like a ball that has good length and the compound finish will give this good length so this ball will not overreact too early on the lanes.3/30/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I’m considering this ball being a full roller ball speed 11-13mpg asymmetrical balls I’ve never had luck with but for med/heavy the reviews say it fits me. I am replacing the Halo Vision which I loved new but since the reaction has never been the same with surface adjustments. How would this compare4/4/2020 - By To young to be old
Out of the box this ball is designed to have more length than the Halo Vision and it may be a touch weaker in overall hook potential but with your ball speed it may do better to have a little more length before the ball has the strong backend hook. I am not sure what adjustments were made to the Vision but the Results also has a pearl cover which is not going to absorb the oil quite as much as the hybrid cover on the Vision.4/6/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
I am a high rev player who is getting older and my ball speed isnt up to where I wish it was so I was wondering if this ball would be to strong for me4/9/2020 - By The "King"
This may be a good option still because the polished finish will help the ball go longer which will be good for a slower ball speed if your ball speed is slower. It is designed for medium to heavy oil so it would be too strong if you are using this in medium to drier conditions.4/13/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
would this ball be good for bowler between12mph 13mph with rev about1505/15/2020 - By mike
Yes, this could be a good option. This has a pearl coverstock which helps the ball get down the lane before starting to hook which would be good if your ball speed is a little slower and it has a high hook potential so that with a lower rev rate you would still be able to get a decent amount of hook on the ball. The ball is rated for medium to heavy oil.5/15/2020 - By Bowling.Com Staff
