Additional product information:

The Double Cross is Radical's first-ever urethane introduction. The Double Cross features a new core specifically designed to produce unprecedented urethane performance, with an Rg of 2.53 and a total differential of .035; the differential is higher than any urethane ball currently on the market. The Double Cross yields a remarkable performance never seen in a urethane ball up until now.

What performance can you expect from the Double Cross? You will get a smooth urethane control with the continuation through the pins you have come to expect from all Radical launches. We have added the hard-hitting Dynamicore for increased pin carry, giving the Double Cross all the features you expect from a Radical product.

As hesitant and adamant as I was about not launching a urethane ball, the Double Cross has convinced me that we will have the best in the urethane class.

With our new ball launches, we are featuring new drilling instructions offering a wide variety of ball motion with "no balance hole" options so that bowlers can make a smoother transition into the new ball specifications. Again, this is just another example of why Radical is quickly becoming a leader in bowling ball technology. We call it the #Radical Revolution.

At Radical Bowling Technologies, innovation is our commitment. We deliver high tech, high- quality products for the betterment of the game ...Wow! That's Radical!

    I never liked the Purple Hammer so this ball is great option for me. I love it!! It is a little less hook overall compared to the Purple ball but it flares more also which is great for me because I have such a high track and will hit the thumb hole. Overall love this ball

    Bigger Engine for a Urethane

    I’ve had an opportunity to throw this ball quite a bit this summer in a PBA Sport League and some PBA events. Given my speed and rev rate, I typically don’t get an opportunity to use urethane. When I do, I use a Purple Hammer and the Radical Double Cross. The Radical Double Cross is different because it has a bigger core and stronger cover than the Purple Hammer. This ball is going to be more angular on the backend, without being like a hockey stick. I tend to use this ball when the backends get tighter. I normally hit the ball with a 1000 pad before competition and never feel as if the ball loses energy during the block. As a senior lefty, throwing urethane on these shorter, higher volume patterns, allows me to manage the pocket far better than throwing reactive. It’s probably the only time when I’m going to throw urethane but I feel confident throwing it.

    Radical Double Cross

    Stats: PAP 4 over ¾ up, 15 mph, 18 tilt, 275 revs. I drilled mine 45x4.25x30. The ball is smooth and controllable like urethane should be and provides a bit more hook than the Hammer Purple Pearl for me. If you are an average rev bowler like myself, the Double Cross would be a good urethane addition because of that additional hook.

    Radical Thane

    For the first Urethane from Radical, they got it right. With the best Purple urethane cover a strong radical core, the Double Cross has the best of 2 worlds. The Double Cross has ALOT of midlane roll with good downlane motion for urethane. I went with a 3 in pin which created alot of flare and hitting power downlane. Really good urethane ball.

    Urethane magic

    Compared to the purple hammer this ball from Radical flares much more and gives more continuation for me. Still with the typical early response to friction the continuation down lane gave me better pin carry on slightly wide shots. So far with 15 to 20 games theres no lane shine apparent on the surface. If your looking to add urethane to the bag this is a great addition.

    Double cross

    Double cross I’m a left handed bowler. My ball speed is around 14 mph. My Rev rate is around 275 rpms. Radical Bowling Technologies recently designed and Pearl urethane ball. I recently drilled this ball. My layout choice was 70 x 4 x 35. I must say I was very surprised in how this ball rolled. It very smooth and continuous. And it carry the pins very well. I think it would be a great addition to anyone’s bowling bag. Robert way

    Radical Double Cross

    The Double Cross is an aggressive urethane ball. It is very strong in the front of the lane and has a manageable back end reaction. This makes it exceptionally useful for playing the outside line or playing straighter angles through the front. Very controllable and predictable. I have had success using this ball on patterns like Viper, where I need something in the mid-range as far as hook potential, and also on house shots, where I need something blendy. I personally love this ball, and I have had many people come up to me while using it to comment on how good it rolls!

    Radical Double Cross, a game changing urethane!!

    Radical Double Cross Review I drilled the Radical Double Cross to be a bigger flaring, more down-lane urethane compliment to my Hammer Purple Pearl, and that is exactly what I got. The Double Cross is drilled 4 ¼” x 30 and flares twice as much as any other urethane ball I have ever used. While it retains the characteristic “earlier roll” of urethane when compared to reactive balls, it makes a more defined motion off the spot which allows me to trust the ball to recover from steeper angles than I can with other urethanes on the market. If you want to square up in the puddle, the Double Cross will perform admirably, holding line and saving enough hitting power to get the job done, thanks to an innovative core design, and DynamiCore outer core technology for more hitting power at the pins. I used it on Holman 38’, Ballard 35’ and Hardwick 44’, with success playing different parts of the lane on each pattern. You can own the Double Cross now, from Bowler Builders Pro Shops and pro shops everywhere! Check out my YouTube video review of the Radical Double Cross here:

    Fantastic Complement to the Purple Hammer

    The Radical Double Cross is a fantastic complement to the Purple Hammer. The Purple Hammer is much stronger than the Double Cross, but the Double Cross rolls more like a true urethane ball, allowing bowlers to keep the ball in front of you and in play longer than with the Purple Hammer. The Double Cross will definitely shape differently from the Purple Hammer, to give a complementary look on various lane conditions which urethane is in play. The Double Cross definitely has more flare down the lane, but very controllable and predictable. This is just a go-to ball for anyone that needs a different look when reactive is too much on a lane condition. Radical continues to innovate and revolutionize the bowling industry!
