About the Bowler

Wow... where should I start with the new Guru Mighty!!! When I heard this ball would be longer and with the same total hook as the Guru, it was hard to believe. I drilled mine 50x4.5x35, same as my original Guru. After throwing a few shots on our high volume house shot, I knew that this ball was special. It gets a few feet longer but RECOVERS!!! It does exactly what Radical states it does, just like in their Perception vs Reality videos. The Guru and Mighty are a great 1-2 punch.

Ball has the exact same core but they modified the additives in the coverstock to project it further. This ball performs, period!!

After the Guru, we thought it couldn't get any better....but now Radical comes out with this. Just as much hook as the original Guru but with a MIGHTY backend.

The first week out of the box with the Mighty resulted in a 299/814 series and a new found appreciation in the advertisement about making the Might longer and stronger than the original Guru. The cover stock is very responsive and easy to maintain. Highly recommend this ball as a suitable 1st ball out of bag component.

The Radical Guru Mighty is a great compliment to the Guru. The Guru Mighty goes about 2 - 4 feet longer and continues stronger downlane like the Guru. With the 4000 box surface, it still gets through heavier oil conditions with strong continuation. I decided to drill my Guru Mighty pin up to compliment my Guru which is pin down, and it exceeded my expectations. I can go to the Mighty Guru when the lanes start to break down and I still need to stay left in the oil. I haven't found a condition where it hooks early. It snaps out the 10 pin like the Guru because of an increased entry angle. The Guru Mighty is a little more versatile than the Guru because of the hybrid coverstock. It takes well to surface changes, and don't be afraid to add a little polish to give you a little more snap downlane.

Most complete bowling ball I have ever thrown, I have drilled up two of these with two different layouts. I am a low to med rev bowler with 16 deg of axis tilt and I don't take this ball out of my hand. The carry is unbelievable and I bowl in a house with very challenging conditions, if I could rate this ball 10 stars I would. This ball is made for every level bowler. No second guessing here, just get it

My Guru Mighty is drilled 50-4.5”-25 with a small P3. I like how this ball compliments my Guru with giving me a little more length through the front, but still being able to turn the corner down the lane. In fact, I believe that is the balls biggest strength is it angle down lane on higher volume or longer patterns. Lower volume patterns may need a little tweaking to the surface, it is ready to go out the box for a majority of conditions.

About the Bowler

Bowler Stats:
18-19 mph
400-425 rpm
5-7 degree tilt
40-60 degree rotation

Layout: 45 degrees by 5" by 45 degrees

Initial thoughts: The Guru Mighty has some big shoes to fill if it's going to meet the glory that the original Guru has received. On paper and on video, the Mighty is supposed to have the same overall hook potential as the original but with more backend reaction. I used the same layout for the Mighty as I did my original for a true apples-to-apples comparison.

On the lanes: WHOA! I didn't think it was possible but the Mighty is every bit as strong as advertised. On two fresh house shots, I could play almost the exact same line with both the Mighty and the original. Thrown on the same line, the Mighty could push about a foot or so more before making its move to the pocket. However due to its stronger backend reaction due to the hybrid cover, the Mighty for me was actually a half to whole board stronger than the original due to the built-in friction of the house shot. The main difference that I see between the two balls is obviously the increased downlane motion of the Mighty which leads to being able to stay with the ball longer throughout the session. Where the original might be tempted to burn up a little early and leave a few weak 10s, the Mighty can still corner downlane enough to snap out those 10s. To put it into a little more perspective, I was able to play well inside of 4th arrow with the Mighty and I was sawing out 10s even with my low tilt (even after 4 games!).

On longer, heavier patterns, I believe the Mighty to be about a board weaker than the original due to the slighter read of the midlane. As the lane transitions, you'll see the Mighty catch up to the original in overall hook before potentially surpassing it.

Closing Remarks: I hesitate to make such a bold claim early on, but I tend to feel that the Mighty will become more popular than the original Guru. I say this due to the increased versatility and the ability to stay with the ball longer throughout the set while still maintaining a metric ton of hook potential. My Mighty remains next to my original Guru at the top of my bag. The two combine to give me maximum hook potential with varying shapes on the backend. Get one, or get beat by it!

Not sure if you can perfect perfection but Mo and Phil have done it again. This hybrid ball is a great compliment to the original Guru. The Guru Mighty provides extra length down the lane as well as angles like it is on rails. I have switched to the Guru Mighty when my Guru and Yeti Unleashed are a bit too strong in the mid-lane. This cover stock not only provides an extra foot of length down lane but also allows for a hearty angle entry to the pocket. Bowling is a game of angles and the Guru Mighty will help you multiply your strikes.

COMMENTS

The Guru Mighty is a very good compliment to the Guru. The Guru Mighty is a very strong surface ball that provides good length with mid-lane traction with the huge backend that the Guru produces. I drilled mine with this layout to give my Guru Mighty a fast revving motion thru the lane with strong continuation motion on the backend. So the Guru Mighty is a strong Radical ball that should be in everyone bags for tournament play, and challenging sport shots.

First came the Guru which was one of the strongest balls on the market... now comes the Guru Mighty which features the strong guru core with a long skid flip coverstock, this ball definitely gets down lane and is very controllable through the mids and comes off the break point with great angle, this ball is very good to transition from the Guru to the new Guru Mighty.

Comments:
This ball is a perfect compliment to the original Guru. The original one is strong over all, started up early and smooth transition, but still strong through the pins. The Guru Mighty is the same thing except the ball starts its move 15 feet later in turn giving the ball a smooth transition and strong back of the lane motion. Not necessarily backend, this is not a skid and U-turn at the end of the pattern kind of ball.
I have thrown this ball in an old wooden house where the heads are shot and it's narrow oil. Normally here I have to stay with non aggressive covers because over/under will haunt me. When I used the Guru Mighty it allowed me to move in and with the hybrid cover it pushed past the bad heads and the farther right I threw the ball the more I got to watch some serious hook and pin action beyond belief.
This ball is also a great ball for sport shots. Guru Mighty features a hybrid core, so it plays for a long period of time before you will have to switch to something else.

About the Bowler

Let me introduce the next great ball from Radical Bowling. The Guru Mighty. The Guru Mighty is a great ball that compliments the original Guru which is my favorite ball that I have had in my bag. The Original Guru was a ball that hook so much that I didn’t know that I could use a lot, but I was totally wrong. The Original was so great for me that I had to drill up its new sibiling in the line the Guru Mighty. The Guru Mighty was drilled Pin above my bridge compare to the pin drilled out in my ring finger for my Original Guru. The Mighty gets a little bit longer which was its attention when developing this ball compare to the Original and keep the same amount of back end potential from the Original. I have been throwing this ball so much the last week since I can play straighter with this from the start and when it gets to the point I need to change balls I can switch to my Gold Rhino Pro by Brunswick. The Mighty is a great ball that if you are looking for some more length and some hook on the back that none of your other equipment has given you. If you haven’t tried Radical Bowling Balls before you need to get your hands on this one it will be the start to changing to a Radical Head and believing on this great brand. #TeamRadical.

About the Bowler

Guru mighty is a wonderful ball, it will match up best with the slower to med ball speed with higher rev rate. compared to the guru that starts sooner for the slower to med ball speed.the ball has a lot of power in the pocket. I have a lot of the bowlers asking about what I has been rolling and they say they need to get one.

Guru Mighty
Layout:::: 50 X 5 X 40 No P3 Hole
Box Surface
Rev Rate ::: 350
Ball speed:::: 16 mph
Condition:::::41 ft. House shot

I was very impressed when the Guru was released and drilled one up. I didn't use the P3 hole in the original Guru and found it to be very strong. One of the strongest balls .
Then comes the Guru Mighty. All I can say is Holy Cow ! I am impressed with the eae it gets down lane. For me it is about 2 1/2 feet longer than my Guru with a sharper break than the Guru. It continues through the pins and the carry is excellent. I started targeting 17 to 10 and found on THS to be strong and struggled to hold pocket. I moved in to 22 to 10 and the ball held pocket . You definately can keep migrating left with this ball.
The Guru Mighty seems to be a very versatile ball and is a very good compliment to the Guru Original. Mo and Phil did another fantastic job with this ball

The Guru Mighty is the perfect compliment to the original Guru. The Mighty allows me to play a similar line to the original Guru with a couple feet of added length and more recovery downlane. As soon as the lanes begin to transition and I am forced too deep with the original Guru, I am able to switch to the Guru Mighty and play the same part of the lane without losing carry. These two balls make an excellent one two punch for heavier lane conditions. The Guru and Guru Mighty continue to push the envelope of what is possible with modern technology. The only negative I have found is that I don't want to use anything else.
