You want hook, we got your hook! Radical's The Cash is a big hooking bowling ball due to a newly designed asymmetric core and a reactive coverstock formation that boasts to be highly aggressive. This ball thrives on heavy oil and hooks like no other.
I will admit that I was first a little disappointed that this release "broke the hook rating." Usually, that does not bode well for a good ball motion and results in to early burn and no down lane reaction. However, this is not the case with the Radical CA$H.
I ended up drilling the ball 50x4.5"x35. I was quite surprised at the ball reaction, while the ball looks extremely dull, I was able to get length through the front part of the lane while not losing any down lane reaction. It appears this is the best of all the previous scenarios utilizing the 'Guru' core. More down lane motion than the Supreme, clears the front way better than the Master, and can fight the oil better than the Original.
Radical has raised the bar again when it comes to hook. The Cash has recieved the highest hook rating ever given out by the Bowlers Journal at 64.5. Being the type of player that likes to keep my eyes a little further right, and also a higher rev player, I traditionally do not go crazy with layouts in these big strong balls. I decided to use my favorite layout of 70x3 ¾"x35 which is the same layout used in my all time favorite Guru Supreme. The Cash gave me exactly what I expected. A strong ball that can handle a lot of volume, and the layout allowed it to get down the lane where I do not have to open up my angles more than I prefer to. I have used the Cash on a variety of patterns so far from a Typical House Shot, to a 41 foot Tower of Pisa Pattern, all the way down to a 37 foot Broadway Pattern. The Cash was versatile enough to work well on each of the patterns. The benefit I see in the Cash over the previous hook title holder (Guru Supreme) is the ability to be a little cleaner through the heads and continue through the pins better. Just in time for tournament season, anyone looking for a ball for heavy volumes, the Cash is your ball!
I'm a moderate revving full roller 15-16mph. The ball let's me play inside and swing like a power player but it also has a very predictable motion. Hits like a tank and just continues through the back of the deck.
This ball is hook in a box. I'll drilled up my with a double thumb layout. For your bowlers at bought a original Guru. Well this is a Guru on steroids. It's very strong ball in the fronts and still has plenty of backend reaction. I have try it out on the typical house shot. It needs a little bit more oil. Or take the surface up to 4000. I have try it on a long sport pattern (shark). Well it gave me the shape I needed to start with on this pattern. Radical did a great job on designing this ball. I'll be buying another one and trying the 90 x 2 1/4 x 50 layout for short patterns.
If you need movement down Lane this will be the ball for you
bought this ball 3 weeks ago shot 634 out of the box and I had missed two 10 pins or it would have been a higher series. two days later had the pro shop tweak the ball a lil bit added a weight hole shot 743 with two splits in my second game back to back or that would have been a a lot higher series ball hits like a tank drives thru the pins well. mine is drilled with layout option A
My Doubles partner and I drilled up Cashes. Our layouts are 90 x 1 1/4 x 50 for him. And my is 120 x 2 1/4 x 45. This was a great shape for doubles and singles at the Usbc Open Championship. With this layout we were able to keep the ball in front of us. And play up the boards. I also used another Cash for the team event. This layout is 60 x 4 x 30. With this ball and two different layouts gave me a one - two punch. Another great ball from Radical Bowling Technologies.
Layout 90 x 2 ¼" x 50
axis - 5 x 1/2 inch up
With this ball I wanted a low flare layout to be able to keep my feet right but still use a big ball. Being that I have slower ball speed and when I need to move left, I run into the higher rev players area. This is where I run into problems and get a lot of over under. With this layout it allows me to keep my feet right and play straighter longer with out going to a weaker cover.
