Radical Counter Attack Pearl Bowling Ball Features:
The Counter Attack Pearl is the polished and pearlized half of Radical’s dual Counter Attack release. It uses a pearl version of the Ai-20 coverstock that is finished with 500/1000 SiaAir and Crown Factory Polish. Like the Counter Attack Solid, the Counter Attack Pearl uses the high RG, low differential Rack Attack 2 Symmetric weight block design. This ball provides the most length in the entire Radical lineup, making it best for drier lane conditions.
The Counter Attack Solid and Pearl follow in the footsteps of the Radical Cult favorites, the Rack Attacks. The Counter Attack balls feature the Ai-20 coverstock formulation, it is the same exact cover formulation used in the original Rack Attacks. The core design is very similar, they have made a few subtle changes to enhance the continuation through the pins, making these an improved version of the original Rack Attacks.
The goal was to create a replacement to the original Rack Attacks and to increase the versatility of the Radical Technologies performance line up.
The Counter Attack Pearl is an updated version of the Rack Attack Pearl with more continuation. I drilled it 70 X 4 X 40. I get more length but a sharper more continuous entry angle than the solid. If you are bowling on light oil patterns or burnt lanes with very little carry down, then this is a must have in your bag.

Counter Attack Pearl,
I’m a lefty. My ball speed is around 15 mph. My Rev Rate is around 275 rpms.
I recently purchased this ball. I was looking for a ball to use on less volume patterns. Well I was very impressed with this ball. It clean thru the fronts and has good length down the lane. My layout is pin to pap 3 3/4” my Val angle is 30 degrees. I recently bowling in a tournament that was wood and low volume. And was able to stay on top of my mark the whole time. It’s a great ball for lower volume patterns.

Likes: So I ordered a few pieces from Brands of Brunswick and the Radical Counter Attack Pearl was kind of a last minute throw in. I was figuring I would try a different piece and it could double as a spare ball. As it turns out I like what I’m seeing as a first ball out of the bag. I’m able to keep my lines in front of me. The ball has easy length through the fronts and mids but still has a good kick at the pins and kicks the corners out pretty well. I even used it early at a recent Regional event on the Mark Roth 42′ pattern and it gave me a good look outside that many people didn’t have. I would say it is similar to the Track Tundra Pearl, maybe a couple boards straighter and a little more kick. The pearl Red makes this a good looking ball too.

The Counter Attack Pearl has become my go to for dry lane conditions. With a similar symmetric core and the same cover as the great Rack Attacks, this ball is very clean but still offers nice back end motion (the solid is smoother). I drilled mine 70 x 4.5 x 30 and I am about 16 mph (at the pins) and around 425 rev rate. We bowl the second set of league and this ball usually makes an appearance for me when I want to get back right some in the track area instead of going extremely far left when it’s broken down and everyone is going to the same place. This allows me to roll the ball well and not overthrow something stronger. I have also had success with it on fresh house patterns too that are not high volume.
