The Strike King is the new entry level performance ball for the 2013-2014 season. It comes in a variety of colors and replaces the Slingshots from the last few years. The Strike King uses a new symmetrical core and new pearlized coverstock. Both of these elements are stronger than those used on the Slingshot. While stronger than its predecessor, it still is best suited for dry lane conditions.

We lined up quickly on our short dry pattern. Because of the straighter nature of the Strike King, Stroker was actually left of Tweener, playing a much straighter line to the pocket.
