The Recon RX1 ball was designed for light and short oil patterns. The ball is as advertised. It pushes through the heads with ease as long as it can find a trace of oil. When the ball finds friction it makes a smooth yet continuous move to the pocket. I was able to use the RX1 playing both down the boards as well as swinging it out to the dry. The ball recovered well, but not in a skid flip manner and as you can tell from the attached video, kept the pins low when the pocket was hit.

If you use this ball as designed, that is on patterns that are either short (less than 37 feet) or broken down by league or tournament play, it will be a very effective ball. To throw it on a fresh THS (Typical House Shot) will take someone with much more hand than I have.

The RX1 gives Motiv a piece of equipment for Motiv believers to step down to when their QZ1's are too much, and it will complete very effectively with other companies mild/dry lane/short shot balls. I'm very colorblind but my daughters think the Orange Ball and the Neomark Graphic makes the ball very pleasing to the eye and will give it good shelf appeal.
