The AMF Xcite is the newest entry-level reactive addition to the AMF family of bowling balls. This ball uses the F43 Pearl coverstock paired with a higher RG symmetrical core that still provides plenty of flare potential. The Xcite is available at an affordable price point and it offers performance that bowlers of all skill levels will appreciate on light and medium oil patterns.

The Xcite was just slightly better for us on the medium test pattern than the dry test pattern. The polished cover easily made its way through the front of the lane, picking up late in the midlane
