The Jackpot is the newest release for Radical and it falls into their affordable EZ-Use line of products. This ball uses the new Jackpot core, which is a symmetric weight block that uses Radical’s layout versatility-increasing Scoop Technology. This core has a medium RG of 2.517″ and a higher differential of 0.056″. The Jackpot’s cover is a new pearl formulation that comes out of the box at 500 SiaAir with Royal Compound. Radical’s EZ-Use line has thus far included the Grease Monkeys, the Torrid Affair, and the Raves, and we were shocked with the Jackpot to find this much performance at this price point.

We started on our medium pattern and all three testers could play where they were most comfortable on the lane. We could either play straighter through the front or move left and open up our angles to the breakpoint. Either way we wanted to attack this pattern, the Jackpot was ready.
