What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I did not have much to go on except that I knew Radical was building off of the Reax and giving a stronger look with more length. I went with another pretty simple layout that works well for me on the fresh. The pin is up above my fingers with a strong drilling angle to help get the motion I want downlane.

Expecting to see good clearance in the heads with a pretty strong motion off the break point.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
My first comment after throwing this ball is "Radical is not afraid of hook!" This ball is silly.

From the first shot I threw warning up to the last ball I threw I was thoroughly impressed with this ball front to back. Off my hand the ball was super clean, which only looked better with the super smooth color combination they went with.

The motion in the heads and middle was clean and then this thing just exploded on the back. This is the type of ball I love having in my hands because I feel like I can get inside of everyone else and just open the lane up without sacrificing any hit at all.

As the shots went on I was able to make pretty good moves left with each shot and I was able to do whatever I wanted with this ball. Radical is going through a change in their line-up and in my opinion they are doing a lot of things right. Everyone loves hook and the Reax Version 2 does just that, it flat out hooks.

If you have never thrown a Radical this is a great place to start. If you have then you know they have really good ball motions and you will fall in love with this ball.
