The closer Pearl

Closer Pearl
I'm a left handed bowler. My ball speed is around 14.5 mph. My Rev rate is around 280 rpms. A couple months ago I was able to drill this ball up. And I was able to use it for about a week or so. The layout I used is 3 3/4 x 30. With the pearl cover this ball is clean thru the fronts and with this layout it has a big backend hook. So far I have only used it on a house shot. And seems to be a great ball for that. I believe this is a great purchase for any type of bowler. And also it's a great looking ball.

The Ridiculous with a little more style!

I went with a control layout of 90, 2 1/4", 45. I was looking for something to complement my short pinned Counter Attack, this is exactly what I was looking for. This should be a great option when I am looking to control the back ends

Radical The Closer Pearl Review

Radical The Closer Pearl Review
By: James Goulding III, Radical Regional Staff
Stats: Speed - 17.0; RPM - 335; AT - 20; AR - 65
Layout: 4.25" x 25 (no x-hole)
The Radical The Closer Pearl is the latest in the already legendary Closer lineup of equipment. The Closer Pearl features the very aggressive, but versatile, Ai-39 pearl cover. This cover / core combination places The Closer Pearl motion a few feet longer than the original The Closer Solid, with a much sharper break down lane. A must-have for every bowling bag, and it also features DynamiCore technology, for more hitting power at the pins and increased durability. I chose the layout I did to get the ball to go further down the lane and transition quicker with the longer pin (4.25") than my The Closer Solid (3.75") and the same low VAL angle (25 degrees). It perfectly complements The Closer Solid in my tournament and league bag. I have used it on a couple of different oil patterns and here is my assessment:
42 ft. THS (typical house shot): The Closer Pearl absolutely murders a THS. It responds to friction quickly and makes a very defined move to the pocket. I took mine from box finish, to 500, back up to 2000 polished, and it responds to all of those very well. My favorite surface is 4000, no polish. 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! I like how it can handle a decent volume of oil inside, not quite as much as The Closer Solid at the same surface, but more than something like a Counter Attack Pearl. This allows me to throw it longer and make smaller moves on the approach as the lanes break down.If you are looking for the best reaction for your "go to" symmetrical ball, less early hook than the big solids but less length than the weaker cored polished pearls, look no further than The Closer Pearl!

Question:

Slow speed, low revs, current have Radical Results, Brunswick Vapor Zone hybrid, and Radical Squatch Hybrid. The Result gets drilled next week and I either need to adjust the surface of the Squatch or have it redrilled as its pretty flat, little to no movement. Will this ball be a good fit or replace the Vapor or is my set up good enough for both league and tournament play?

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This would be a great compliment to the Results as it has very similar length and it would work on medium oil the same as the Results works on heavy oil. This has more length than the Vapor Zone Hybrid but they are similar in overall hook potential. I think with the Results and The Closer Pearl you would have a great 1-2 punch on most league nights and also a lot of tournament conditions.

Question:

is this ball similar to consperacy pearl and is this ball recommenend for 13 lb ball for wife??

11/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball would be very similar in length to the Conspiracy Pearl but this is a step down in terms of hook potential. The Conspiracy Pearl was a high performance ball for heavier oil and the Closer Pearl is an upper mid performance ball for medium oil.
