for me it would have to be my weapon of mass bias. it doesn't have the hook shape of a reactive ball, it seems to just have an early angular roll

Never could get the WMB to ever hook, but didn't know how to throw it back then. Strongest that I have is Radical Guru Supreme. So far I never have had to really use it. Even at nationals the guy had me tame it a bit by wet sanding it to 3000 and then hitting it with 800 to 1000 or something. It was shinny a tad bit when I got it back.

The Diesel Psrticle for me was the most aggressive. It had a very low RG and hooked from anywhere.

Oh gosh, this question brings back a memory from way back. I received a Blue Brunswick Phantom to test a couple months after a Black Phantom. I went a bit aggressive with the layout and boy did the ball hook. Not only hook, it carried everything near the pocket. 30 clean the first two weeks with it and there were rumblings the ball wasn't legal, but I had taken the ball to nationals, the ball was close on side weight, so I had the inspection ticket for having the ball go through second check.

I was known as more of a power stroker so I didn't normally hook the ball that much. I had to stand so far left to keep the ball on the right side of the headpin that I would have thought the ball was not in compliance if I didn't know better.

The most surprisingly aggressive ball that I have ever had was a Storm Frantic with a double thumb layout. That ball hooked more than any top-shelf polished asymmetric I have ever thrown. I really wish Storm would use the NOS core again - I would be in line to buy more than a few.

i found a storm frantic at a bowling alley on the rack, threw it, and was impressed how good it was compared to how beat up it was. it did hook quite a bit (more than my phaze).

Most aggressive ball I've thrown has to be the cell pearl. That ball I could back out my hand and be up the boards and continued like crazy. I could loft the left gutter to the right gutter and it still came back. There was no where on the lane I couldn't play that ball would not come back from or carry. New ball I've thrown is probably the sure lock from storm.

Visionary Centaur AMB Particle. a high flaring cinder block. Usually just too early and cover too strong for any lane condition.
