Additional product information:

The Hitter is the second ball to use the computer-generated motion core design program. The Outer Limits was the first to use the computer-generated motion core design program, and we have seen outstanding performance from the Outer Limits. The Hitter is an asymmetrical core featuring an RG of 2.50, a differential of .045, and an intermediate differential of .015. The cover is a newly developed formulation called the Utility Cover. This cover showed us the most versatility by matching perfectly with The Hitter core. Our tester found The Hitter to be strong enough to handle medium to heavy volumes of oil and still yielded a strong continuous motion off the spot.

    like the ball says

    This ball is a Hitter, gets through the fronts pretty well and so smooth downlane. Very strong cover and perfect for patterns and THS.

    This is a great benchmark ball. The hitter is very smooth and predictable for me. It allows me to start with it right out of the gate or switch to it game 3 and move in and not lose any hitting power! This ball is very versatile on a wide variety of patterns and is very forgiving. It's a must have for tournament bowlers!

    The Hitter is extremely strong. It is a bit too early on our house pattern. I am able to use it on lower ratio patterns with relatively high volume. If you are bowling tournaments, it is a must.

    The Hitter is one of my favorite radical balls of the year. Reminds me so much of the envy tour only it’s a little earlier and a little stronger down lane. The motion is so predictable. You can easily use this as your asymmetrical benchmark ball.

    Radical Hitter I’m a left handed bowler. My ball speed is around 14.5 mph. My Rev rate is around 275 rpms. My layout choice is 80 x 2 1/4 x 45. My opinion this is the greatest ball I have in my bag. It’s not the biggest hooking ball. But it is a very reliable ball. If I need to play up the boards. It works well. If I need to swing it a little it works well. It’s like the ball does whatever I need it to do. It has a small arc motion to it. I think Radical bowling technologies not it out of the part with this ball. Thanks, Robert Way

    I drilled this ball 60x2x40 and man did it strike. Game 2 out of the drill 300 and 794 series on lane I had been having to use urethane to get a consistent ball reaction. Even with a 2" pap drilling there was plenty of hook and it honestly surprised me how controllable it was. Very vlean and good looking ball going down the lane.

    The Hitter is the cleanest, sharpest down lane solid I have ever rolled. It's a unique shape given it is similar to the sharper pearls and hybrids, but with the solid cover, it comes off the spot with a controlled, but angular shape. Allows me to continue to move in when the lanes dry out without having to go to a pearl/hybrid cover.

    The Hitter is a great asymmetrical ball in the reliable price point. I drilled mine 40x 4 ¼ x 70 the pin down layout. I wanted a smooth roll with control on the backed. The Hitter is great for this layout. The cover allows this ball to be used on the heaver volumes not usually tackled in the reliable lines. Great ball.

    Radical "The Hitter" review (with video)

    Posted by James G. on Oct 6th 2023

    I drilled The Hitter to (hopefully) be my long awaited replacement for my favorite Radical ball of all time, the original Conspiracy. Needless to say, early returns say my wait is now over! The Hitter uses a new core shape and the Utility Solid cover, so you get that big sweeping motion, with shot to shot predictability. The layout used on The Hitter was 50 x 4.5" x 70 to mimic the same one I used on my original Conspiracy and shot 259, 259 right out of the box with it. The Hitter picks up a touch sooner than the Innovator Solid, but more overall hook than the Outer Limits. On a THS, it handles the puddle with ease, and does not react too sensitively to the dry, making it THE benchmark asymmetric ball in your bag. I love the reaction on medium-heavy sport patterns such as Beefy Burrito and Earl Anthony, control with enough hook to get out those pesky corner pins!
