The Radical Conspiracy pairs a new asymmetrical core shape with the new Forged 2 Solid coverstock to create a monstrous motion off the end of the oil pattern. The new coverstock is finished at 3000 SiaAir, which gives the Conspiracy the right amount of length to set it up for its very strong move at the breakpoint. This box finish was dull enough to not cause over-skid on our patterns, while also being smooth enough to not create too much energy loss before hitting the pins. The Conspiracy complements the rest of the Radical line very nicely, providing strong angle at the back of the lane on heavy to medium volume patterns.

We liked this new release just a little more on our heavy oil test pattern than our medium. On the fresh, all three testers saw a stronger change of direction than from any of the Katanas, but less total hook than the Katana Dragon. Tweener and Stroker really enjoyed how much they saw their balls turn over on this slicker condition. As long as they didn’t throw their shots out the window right of target early, they saw a massive move off the breakpoint, which resulted in very good pin carry. While all three testers played farther right through the front of the lane than they did with balls like the Cash or the Katana Dragon, the Conspiracy was much sharper off the breakpoint.
