Scandal/s vs Hammer Ripped

Post by krava » June 19th, 2018, 7:32 pm

I noticed that they both talk about good midlane reaction. I don't think there is much of a difference between these 2 balls is there? I have a ripped but only used it 1 time because I never get any large volumes of oil. I might try throwing this thing 3rd arrow or beyond and see what happens. I don't think someone that has a ripped should get the scandal/s.

Rip'd is asymm, Scandal is symm.
It is therefore possible to achieve low angle sums with low angle ratios with the Rip'd, but the Scandal will have a fixed PSA near the thumbhole.

The balls are otherwise very similar, but BTM rated the Scandal/S much higher overall in testing.
