Hitter

I drilled mine 55 X 4 ½ X 55. The Radical Hitter is the second ball ever to use the computer generated motion core design program. It has quickly become a staple in my tournament bag, and will provide you with a very smooth and predictable shape downlane. The Hitter reminds me of a cleaner version of the Envy Tour. This ball is definitely underrated and should not be overlooked.

Hitter

This ball is a Hitter, gets through the fronts pretty well and so smooth downlane. Very strong cover and perfect for patterns and THS and first out of the bag.

The Hitter

This is a great benchmark ball. The hitter is very smooth and predictable for me. It allows me to start with it right out of the gate or switch to it game 3 and move in and not lose any hitting power! This ball is very versatile on a wide variety of patterns and is very forgiving. It's a must have for tournament bowlers!

Radical Hitter

The Hitter is extremely strong. It is a bit too early on our house pattern. I am able to use it on lower ratio patterns with relatively high volume. If you are bowling tournaments, it is a must.

Radical Hitter

I recently drilled a Radical Hitter- an asymmetric core piece designed for higher volumes of oil. The cover on the ball is the Utility Solid colored in black/purple. Box finish is 2000 Siaair. I drilled one with a 60 x 5 x 70 layout, my favorite pin down layout. I tried the Hitter on fairly fresh THS and I left the Hitter at its box surface- I didn't make any surface adjustments.

I genuinely liked what I saw with this ball. I was hoping this ball might be a little quicker and more off the spot compared to one of my true favorite balls in the past year, the Hammer Envy Tour...again just to give me another option. From what I saw and what the video shows, it has a little more back end than an Envy Tour. However, that being said, the Hitter is definitely an earlier, heavy rolling, continuous ball which will be at its best on higher volume FRESH patterns. I do not see this ball in play on broken down patterns and/or when extreme angles are needed through the front. I think the Hitter will be in play on a variety of pattern distances as long as there is sufficient volume.

The Radical Hitter is readily available- see your local pro shop for more information.

Best radical bowl of the year

The Hitter is one of my favorite radical balls of the year. Reminds me so much of the envy tour only it’s a little earlier and a little stronger down lane. The motion is so predictable. You can easily use this as your asymmetrical benchmark ball.

Radical Hitter
I’m a left handed bowler. My ball speed is around 14.5 mph. My Rev rate is around 275 rpms. My layout choice is 80 x 2 1/4 x 45. My opinion this is the greatest ball I have in my bag. It’s not the biggest hooking ball. But it is a very reliable ball. If I need to play up the boards. It works well. If I need to swing it a little it works well. It’s like the ball does whatever I need it to do. It has a small arc motion to it. I think Radical bowling technologies not it out of the part with this ball.

Thanks,
Robert Way

Hit it out of the park

This is truly a Big League Hitter. I love the solid Utility cover and the pins stay low with the low RG. The ball is really smooth and fits in my bag between the Hammer Extreme Envy and the Hammer Dark Web Hybrid. This ball will lend it self to the first ball out of the bag on the fresh.

Hitter

The Hitter is a great asymmetrical ball in the reliable price point. I drilled mine 40x 4 ¼ x 70 the pin down layout. I wanted a smooth roll with control on the backed. The Hitter is great for this layout. The cover allows this ball to be used on the heaver volumes not usually tackled in the reliable lines. Great ball.

Radical The Hitter review (with video)

I drilled The Hitter to (hopefully) be my long awaited replacement for my favorite Radical ball of all time, the original Conspiracy. Needless to say, early returns say my wait is now over! The Hitter uses a new core shape and the Utility Solid cover, so you get that big sweeping motion, with shot to shot predictability. The layout used on The Hitter was 50 x 4.5" x 70 to mimic the same one I used on my original Conspiracy and shot 259, 259 right out of the box with it. The Hitter picks up a touch sooner than the Innovator Solid, but more overall hook than the Outer Limits. On a THS, it handles the puddle with ease, and does not react too sensitively to the dry, making it THE benchmark asymmetric ball in your bag. I love the reaction on medium-heavy sport patterns such as Beefy Burrito and Earl Anthony, control with enough hook to get out those pesky corner pins! WWRD is 10-19-2023, but you can pre-order yours now from Bowler Builders Pro Shops.
