Radical Katana Slash Bowling Ball

We kept the same strong asymmetrical core design as in the original Katana, and wrapped it with an even stronger additive package making the Forged cover stock even more aggressive. The new Forged 2 cover contains additives that make the Slash a backend monster on heavier oil patterns. The Katana Slash delivers as the most angular ball in the Radical line to date.

Slash the pins

This ball is amazing for being such an aggressive ball it has tremendous length. Radical was able to make a ball as angular as the original but it will hook about 2 feet sooner. I was lucky enough to try it on a sport shot and it makes its turn like it was on a house shot. If you like to stand left,throw right and watch the messengers in action this is the ball you want.

Katana Slash
By: Robert Way on March 31, 2018

Radical Katana Slash, I’m left hander. Ball speed around 15 mph. Rev rate around 275-300. It was recommended to get two of these balls. One with a short pin layout another with a long pin layout. The layouts are 120 x 1 1/2 x 60. The other layout is 50 x 4 1/2 x 40 with a P3 balance hole. By doing the two different layouts I have two different backend motion. The short pin layout allows me to play straighter up the boards. And the other allows me move deeper inside swing it. Now these balls aren’t for the light volume oil patterns. But this setup works great together. There is about 9 boards hook differences between the two. I think Radical Bowling Technologies did a great job designing this ball. Robert Way

The Slash turns the Katana up to 11!
By: Bill Baker on March 21, 2018

This Katana Slash (drilled 60 X 4.5 X 30) gives me just a bit earlier read than my original Katana with the same layout. For my speed and roll (0 tilt), I had to hit the surface with 2000. When I feel my original Katana starting to wiggle downlane or leaving the corners, the simple change to the Slash on the same line has yielded great success.

Versatile Big Backend
By: Bryan Bannach on March 05, 2018

The Katana was a game changer for the Radical brand. It had the most angle of any Radical ball to date. One of its shortcomings was that it got a little too angular at times and would leave me with some ugly counts. With that in mind I decided to put a 50x4.5x40 drilling in my Katana Slash to try and get a little more control of the breakpoint. WOW is this ball great. The Katana Slash reads the lane about 2-3 feet earlier than the original, and covers just as many boards down lane, however, it isn’t as “quick” to do so. Making the Katana Slash a much more “readable” motion that I can use on many different patterns. When the Slash starts losing energy, I can switch to the original and keep striking. They make a great 1-2 punch.

With the NEW Forged cover stock the Movement on this ball is not as angular as the Original Katana, but it is stronger going through the pins and continues through the pins, I drilled mine up 45x5.5x40 with a PAP hole. On a THS I was 7 boards left compared to original with no problem getting it back.. I'm loving this ball See you local Pro Shop operator to order yours, you will not be disappointed by the reaction
