The Radical Ridiculous Asym is the second release to use the Ridiculous name in Radical’s Reliable line of products. While the original Ridiculous had a symmetrical core, this version pairs a solid coverstock with an asymmetrical core that uses Radical’s layout versatility-increasing Scoop Technology design. It has a total differential of 0.050″, an intermediate differential of 0.012″, and an RG of 2.538″.

The Ridiculous Asym was just a little bit better for our testers on our medium pattern than it was on our heavy oil pattern. Our testers all started in their comfort zones on this pattern, with Stroker and Tweener both targeting close to the second arrow and Cranker targeting closer to the middle arrow. They were all getting this ball out to around the seventh
