The Frantic is a combination of the coverstock from the Hy-Road and the Core from the 2Fast/2Furious line. The Hy-Road was the most versatile coverstock I have ever used, and my favorite ball of all time! I have been looking forward to this ball since the first word I heard about it.
I drilled my Frantic with a 5" pin and a 4.5" MB. The pin is just above my middle finger. This layout is the same that I put on my first Hy-Road. I did this, not only because it is a very reliable layout for me, but also to be able to get a good comparison between the Frantic and the Hy-Road.
The Frantic is exactly what I was hoping for! It has a good mid-lane read, and a heavy roll in it's hook phase. It is similiar to the Hy-Road, but a slightly stronger mid-lane roll, and more of a drive in the hook phase than a sharp backend. The Hy-Road is more angular than the Frantic, but I feel like the two are equally as strong in their own way.
I bowled with the Frantic in league for the first time last night. It read the fresh oil so easily, and has such a smooth reaction, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. Due to two bad spare shots, I only shot a 216 game one. Game 2 I leave a ten pin and pick it up, adjusted and came in high to leave a 4 pin and picked it up. Then I adjusted and went 9 strikes in a row and then crush a ten for a 278. I changed balls two frames into game 3 because the oil moved down and I needed a slightly stronger ball. Needless to say, I am in love with the Frantic. The Hy-Road is the only ball I have ever owned two of, but the Frantic may be on that list soon.
I recommend this ball for low to medium oil. It is strong enough to bowl on a lot of sport patterns, and is perfect for almost all house shots. It could easily sell in the Thunder line, but in the Hot line it is a bargain that you can't turn down!
