I absolutely love my two Versa-maxes for anything close to a medium pattern. I wanted the Too Reckless to compliment both of them in the same hook potential region of my bag, but with a more pronounced move off of the dry boards.

On the lanes:
PERFECT! Regardless of the pattern, I got exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. House shots, USBC Blue patterns, the USBC Nationals pattern, and others all saw approximately the same result. The Too Reckless ignored the heads (even after plenty of burn) and made a very convincing move off of the spot downlane. Through the pins, this ball performs like every other DV8 ball for me in that the pins stay low. The Too Reckless rolls so hard through the pins that it’s as if the ball actually digs into the pin deck. Anytime that deflection is minimized in this context is a major bonus. In comparison to the Versa-Max with a very similar drilling, the Too Reckless was about 1-2 boards stronger overall on all patterns and much more angular. I could simply make the move inside with my feet and project the ball to the same spot downlane. Both would respond to the friction at the same distance, just with the Too Reckless standing up harder and the Versa being more continuous in nature.

Typically, I don’t care much for the out of the box surface when polish is involved. This ball is an exception for me. Having the solid cover with that core keeps the ball from squirting past the breakpoint regardless of the polished surface. In addition, the out of the box polish gives plenty of skid through the heads. It’s a great feeling knowing that I can really hit on it, even with some burn, and it still save its energy for a sharp move.

My overall impression of this ball is that the Too Reckless is a great medium oil ball with a very quick move off the friction. If you are looking for mid-range ball with all the backend response, then look no further. Get the big backend response without the big price tag.
