Radical Counter Attack Solid Bowling Ball Features:
The Counter Attack Solid is half of a dual release in Radical’s affordable EZ-Use line, along with the Counter Attack Pearl. This ball uses the Ai-20 Solid coverstock and the Rack Attack 2 Symmetric core. This core is a higher RG (2.575″) and lower differential (0.023″) symmetrical design, offering tight flare rings in the oil and providing easy length. The lower differential keeps this ball from over-hooking when it comes out of the pattern on the back end, allowing bowlers to play straighter up the outside part of the lane on drier 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.

Counter attack solid
I’m a left handed bowler. My balls speed is around 14 1/2 mph. My Rev Rate is around 275-300 rpm. My axis tilt is around 13 degrees. I recently purchased this ball. The layout I put in it is 60 x 4 x 40. For me this is a great layout for a house shot. This ball has a low differential to start with. Which makes this ball very clean thru the fronts and continuous on the back end. For the bowlers that don’t have a lot of revs. Like me. You will be able to keep the ball in front of you and play up the boards. For the high rev players. I believe you’ll like it also. It should allow you not have to move as deep with it. I believe this is great addition to the Radical Technologies line.
The Counter Attack Solid is an updated version of the Rack Attack Solid with more continuation. I drilled it 70 X 4 X 40. On dry lanes i get plenty of length with a smooth arching continuous motion. Great ball to have in your bag when the lanes are completely broken down or a light oil pattern. I highly recommend this ball.

My go to! Benchmark ball! Recently bowled the state tournament before COVID-19, and this thing really saved me. Pattern was tight, in front of you, but had to control it off the friction. Pumped three 240 plus games with it, and couldn’t have done it without! Crazy good ball! Definitely A Must have!

The Counter Attack Solid is the perfect ball for short patterns or late in blocks when you need a smooth reacting motion. I had the opportunity to throw it on the 35′ Del Ballard pattern and with this ball I was able to keep my lines in front of me and get similar coverage to my urethane but with better carry. When you get late in blocks and opening the lane is not your thing, this will be a great go to ball. It is similar in coverage to the Track Tundra Solid but maybe a hair sooner and smoother. Good ball to have in the arsenal.

No-thumb, one league per week, tournaments when I can. Tremendous slouch.
Light to medium-light volume pattern beast!
The Counter Attack Solid and Pearl follow in the footsteps of the Radical Cult favorites, the Rack Attacks. Remade but upgrading upon the originals, 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, we have made a few subtle changes to enhance the continuation through the pins with the Rack Attack 2 Symmetric core, making these an improved version of the original Rack Attacks. Our goal was to create a replacement to the original Rack Attacks and to increase the versatility of the Radical Technologies performance line up.
With an out of box surface of 500/1000/3000 and the core/cover combination, matched with my layout of 4.25×5.25×2.25, the Counter Attack Solid gets length and a smooth, continuous motion on medium-light volume patterns just as it’s intended by Radical Bowling Technologies. I’ve also had some good looks for lane motion on shorter sport patterns. I have better options for me to begin a night of league bowing but i have used it to start, and it’s not my A-game, but I can move to the right with my feet and targets and the Counter Attack Solid will get me the arcing, continuous motion. I just need to keep my speed consistent as sometimes I’ll sail past the breakpoint if I’m too fast.
Purple. Solid …and with the gold lettering this ball just looks great.
Coming in at Radical Bowling Technologies ‘EZ-Use’ level, the Counter Attack Solid is exactly that … easy to use (and SUPER AFFORDABLE!) which makes it a great option for beginner bowlers looking for that first ball when they want to learn to control a curve or for the experienced bowler looking for something special when the lanes are either beat up, you’re rolling on a short pattern or looking for a ball to play a tighter line and not overreact.
Be well, rip racks …and shred pins.
I love this ball when I am in Big Trouble and the Lanes are Really breaking down I use it and its Smooth and Controllable. I use it on Dry House Shot or The Lanes are Really Burning up. I use it as my Weak Reactive.
