What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

I really like all of the Guru releases so far but I couldn't understand why they released another sanded, solid with the same core. Aren't we going to overlap reactions?

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

One throw with the Guru Supreme and I knew why they released this ball. This ball has reaction that you just don't see very often. It's a ball that is as strong as anything out there, with a sanded finish but it doesn't burn up on medium conditions. It has enough length and energy retention to cover a wide range of conditions.

This isn't to say that this ball won't cover the heaviest of oil, because it ABSOLUTELY will. This ball is a monster. The only difference between the original Guru and the Supreme is a new coverstock. And what a coverstock it is. In my opinion, this is one of the most innovative coverstocks we've seen in a long time.

Anyone who needs a ball with super high hook potential but doesn't want a one trick pony definitely needs a Radical Guru Supreme in their bag!

Guru Supreme is here wow this will be the ball for oil. I have the one Dustin uses in the demo love the roll in the front smooth with control. Hits hard and with lanes changing all the time in 5 man teams the Guru Supreme will read the pattern for you.

About the Bowler

Radical Guru Supreme

Bowler’s Stats:
Speed: 18.5-19 mph
Rev Rate: 425-450 rpm
Axis Rotation: 30-60 degrees
Axis Tilt: 5-7 degrees
Ball Layout: 45* by 4.5” by 50*

I thought the Guru Master was a lot of ball, this is more.
I’ve only been able to throw this ball a few frames simply because I haven’t had a need for it yet in my area for leagues or in tournament travel. When I have tested it alongside my Nirvana and Guru Master on both house shots and the 41’ Beaten Path in league warm-up, the Guru Supreme is an easy 2-1 move inside from the Master and about the same for the Nirvana. While the Supreme has a more angular shape than the Master (where I view the extra boards coming from) the Supreme and the Nirvana have a surprisingly similar shape for me with just the Supreme having a little more horsepower in the midlane. I can’t imagine it being possible to make a ball that’s much stronger than this but I’m sure in a year or more I’ll be amazed again. I have nothing else to say; this ball just flat out hooks.
If you’re bowling on absolutely flooded conditions, longer patterns, or have insanely high ball speed and low rev rate, this ball will provide the most hook on the market. The fact that the Supreme outhooks the Master (the highest rated ball in overall hook ever) is just insane. If you’re looking to replace or add a ball into the very top of your arsenal to combat the long length and high volume patterns, the Guru Supreme has no equal.

The Guru line is one of the best ball lines I have seen so far. The way these balls get through the heads is remarkable. The Guru Supreme is so clean through the front part of the lane and makes its move in the mid-lane and the back end reaction is phenomenal. No loss of hitting power or drive with this ball. I went with a neutral layout with the CG in the center of grip with the pin at 12 o'clock Simply put, this ball is an absolute monster. I have been able to use the Guru Supreme on a variety of conditions. I have not found a part of the lane I can not play with this ball. This ball is another winner for Radical and one everybody should have in there bag. "Wow that's Radical"

This ball fits great with the Master and Mighty guru. It picks up in the midst. Sooner than the Mighty.
But less than the Master. It hooks more on the backend than the Master. Another great ball from Radical Bowling Technologies.

I am not a radical staffer. In fact I prefer to roll the non PBA bowling balls, none more than Pyramid. When it comes to PBA sanctioned companies I enjoy Brunswick/Radical (not so much DV8) the best.

I continue to use the Reax2 Solid, Reax Gusto, and the Yeti uncaged in my rotation. Looking forward to trying some of the newer symmetrical lines.

I actually never intended to roll any of the Guru's but I won a mighty and absolutely loved it. I later tried the original as this line will go down as one of MO's and Phil's greatest ever so I had to. I liked the original as well, but the smoothness and versatility of the Mighty made it one of my favorite asymmetrical balls in recent history.

Naturally I thought a pearl was to follow. I was initially bummed at the release of the master and then the supreme. The original was and is a monster why more 500/1500 sanded coverstocks. I initially passed over the master.

While it's very close this ball has taken over as my favorite in the line. If you want to use any two Gurus as a one two punch start with the Supreme and go to the Mighty. They will give you a similar motion, so if you prefer to ball down rather than to move your feet, the Mighty will follow the Supreme nicely when it starts too hook too early.

So I had to try the mighty eventually. This is where I disagree with many of the reviews here. I found the Mighty to the largest hooking in the series by far, the least versatile, it was the only ball I did not like. The Mighty is earlier and more than any of the other balls.

The Guru supreme is an absolute beast though. I find it to be the hardest rolling in the series yet despite that, it gets the most length of the three solids and comparable back end to the mighty.

If you are looking for an a beast of an asymmetric solid that will hook big, retain energy even on medium conditions, and carry, carry, carry, this is by far the best of the Solid Gurus.

(Still hoping to see a pearl in this series, and then excited to see the next asymmetric monster that Phil and Mo come up with)

After being Mighty and recently a Master, we are now SUPREME! The Guru Supreme is the new Sheriff in town! That ball is a stronger version of the Master with a lot more backend! The Supreme is not far from the Mighty, when we talk about backend. The choice between the Supreme and the Master depends how you throw the ball. The Master is better suit for bowlers who are low-to-medium track. On the other side, the bowlers who are medium-to-high tracker will prefer the Supreme. For me, the latter is my case.

I change my vision for the Supreme, I wanna try something new. I saw on a video, a Supreme with a MOtion Hole. One of our teammate on staff and a friend of mine try that before me and I was really impressed by the reaction. So, I drilled mine 75x4.25x35 with the possibility of a MOtion Hole. I didn’t do it now because it is way too strong for the condition I play on here. Maybe later I’ll do it but for now I don’t need it. It is now the strongest ball in my bag and I look forward to use it in the upcoming tournament. I really love the continuation through the pins and the energy it keeps to carry the pins. Seriously, with the Master, I never see two balls carry the pins like that. The first words that was coming out of my mouth was……WOW That’s Radical.

The new Guru Supreme is available since October 27th in your local Pro Shop. Like I said, that ball is RADICAL!

By far this is the best ball I have ever owned. Since I got this ball I have been constantly shooting 220 to 240+ 70% of the time. I throw over 17mph and high revs

Wow, that's Radical is the company's catch phrase..... it has never more appropriately been used than in the case of the Guru Supreme. Continuing the trend of success in the Guru line is the Supreme. This ball is the whole package when you're bowling on high volume. It gives an incredible amount of traction, while still saving energy for powerful downlane motion. Most heavy oil bowling balls hook early...this one is different. It sees the front and mids but doesn't really change direction until about 40-45 feet. This one will always be in the bag when I am bowling on higher volumes or newer lane surfaces.

About the Bowler

Specs: Left handed, 15mph, ~400 rev rate.
I took a different approach with the Guru Supreme, drilling 45*x6x40*, which places the pin just above my middle finger. Being left handed, this drilling has given me more opportunity to open the lane with the Guru Supreme! The down side is that I don't get the chance to play 4th/5th arrow often, but when I do need to, this ball has been a stud! I have the cover at 3000 wet sand so I can see the ball push through the fronts, begin reading in the mids and through the pins very easy. The great part (in my opinion) about the Guru line, is the core. When matched up correctly, this core just knows how to carry the energy through the pins and knock them all over. This allows me to be in a similar part of the lane as my Mighty, but the difference in drilling gives a different shape down lane.

I welcome anyone who has questions about the Supreme, or any other ball released by Radical Bowling Technologies, please shoot me an email and I will be happy to help in your decision making for your next purchase. ChrisHeringer@Gmail.com
