Other - 4" flare. My new benchmark ball! Every line, every release, every angle, strike or that pesky 9 pin. Drilled pin under bridge with CG kicked out 15 degrees. Clears heads like a pearl, reads mids like you'd expect a solid, drives like a freight train to the pocket and hits like one too. Pins flying everywhere. Shot 268 the first game, leaving two 9 pins. Everyone should have this ball in their arsenal.

BALL REACTION

COMMENTS
Carry - consistent
Likes - everything!
Dislikes - none
Other - This Raven Attack is drilled REVS Leverage. Pin is 1" right (or left) of centerline, 1" above midline. CG kicked out 45 degrees in thumb positive quadrant. Weight hole is ALWAYS required. Will rarely, if ever, be the first out of the bag, but when the carry down starts, this ball is what you want. Clears burnt heads like a pearl, skates thru the muddy mids and REVS heavily with solid drive thru the carry down and pins. Blew every rack on every line, yes, 300 out of the box! Just like my other Raven Attack, everyone should own this ball.

Re: Visionary Raven Attack

Update. Used both of these Tuesday on a fresh, juicy, limited movement, (reverse block?), house league shot. Pin under drilling was very forgiving unless I tugged it. My bad there. Everyone on our pair commented how hard it was hitting and how well it was driving thru the juice. Only problem was tap city. Square danced from 22-25 thru first game and changed to the Raven. Then, in three 7th frame of the 3rd game, switched to the REVS Leverage drilled Raven Attack. Should have switched sooner! Stone 9 in 7th, XXXXX out. Ball never faltered, and started to rev so hard in the last 15-20 feet of the lane, I was concerned it would miss the 7 pin. But no, it cleared the deck. Period. Had 7+ inches of flare, cleared the heads, light read in the middle and drive, drive, drive thru the deck. WOW!
