Is there anything comparable (med RG/low diff/solid) comparable to the Rack Attack solid?

I had a chance to load up on them 6 months ago and didn't.

This is easily the best low volume ball I've had in forever and have no idea what I'm going to replace it with when mine is done.

I've considered trying a Magnitude .035 and going with a weaker pin to kill some of the flare, but I don't know how the covers compare.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a Rack Attack Solid drilled 4.125" x 53 with a P1 7/8" x 3" and have a Magnitude .035 Solid drilled 3.5" x 35. The RA is a great ball down from the .035 and these are 2 great bowling balls. As for making them act the same you might be able to pull it off. The week pin position would help but my only concern is the flip cover on the .035. My .035 is the first ball out of my bag and I hope it lasts me a long time. I would give it a try if not I'm sure you will still like what you have in the .035. FWIW I drilled a .035 pearl (4.125" x 52 same as RA) a couple weeks ago and its cleaner than the .035 solid and little more pop down lane. Great for when I get in a little to deep and the .035 solid stats leaving 10 pins. Good luck!

Phil said on his FaceBook Live yesterday that the Cyclops at 2000 or Intel at 3000 would be close.

Awesome, I like budget buys personally. You could probably get a Cyclops drilled for just the cost of a new mid range ball.

I could have had a case of RA soiids for $160. I did not take advantage. :(

That would’ve been cool, I just drilled my first Radical. Got a Ridiculous pearl and love it. Have a Tremendous too but not sure how I want to lay it out.

The Ridiculous Pearl could be the best pearl I've ever owned.
