Which Radical balls do you plan on having in your fall bag this year?
This year more than in any year's past I see a reaction for every bowler type out there.

Right now out of the balls on the list you posted, I only have the Cash, the Fix, and the Ricidulous Pearl.

I have the Tremendous and Xeno Pearl from your post and still have my original Ridiculous as well. The Cash I have is restricted to sport shots.

I do not have any Radical equipment yet, but would not mind trying some. I only can bowl on the 40' THS since no centers in my area have sport leagues. I like to play as straight as I can, but given that the THS tends to be a wet/dry pattern I must play the big hook to reduce the over/under effect of the pattern. Given my stats what would you Radical experts suggest?

Rev dominant due to speed, I'd recommend the Cyclops with a little bit of surface @ 2000.
60 x 5 x 60, should put the pin in the ring finger. Adjust angles as necessary to get it there.
This will allow you to play soft.
PAP might be touchy with track flare safeness, if thats an issue in the past with similar layouts, let me know I'll adjust it.

New equipment? I'm still using my Jackpot (pearl), Primo (pearl) and Guru Master for most conditions. Three very reliable pieces across a wide range of conditions.

Primo Solid comes out occasionally, as well as Guru Mighty, depending on what I'm rolling on. Rack Attack Solid (motion hole) and I have an undrilled RA Pearl sitting on the bench.

I never warmed up to the Jackpot Solid or the only Fix I drilled. Would like to revisit those layouts at some point. Cash, Xeno, Ridiculous are all very intriguing but I honestly can't begin to keep up with the new releases and I bowl a LOT!

My low volume summer THS requires something like a Brunswick Exile or Hyper Cell Skid. I'm guessing the Ridiculous (or Xeno) Pearl might be a nice Radical replacement for those pieces.

that Cyclops and Cash look like two versions of the original Guru Master cover. is that true? I thought the original GuruM was one of the best balls I've thrown.

I'll get a cash if thats the case.
