One of the most important balls in any bowler’s bag is an angular “skid-flip” polished ball for medium oil. One that gets through the front part of the lane with ease and lunges toward the pocket when it hits friction on the backend. The Ripcord™ Launch is a gorgeous pearl that nails that performance target perfectly.

It’s the first ball in the Ripcord™ series to utilize the incredibly strong Propulsion™ cover technology. MOTIV® tuned it to get the length and response to friction needed, creating the new Propulsion MVP Pearl Reactive. Utilizing this new cover, the Ripcord™ Launch handles the oil better than any previous Ripcord™ without sacrificing angularity.

The core inside is a special density-modified symmetrical Torx™ V2. It has a super-compact design and fills an essential position in the line because it has both a moderate RG and differential. This gives the Ripcord™ Launch a very powerful down-lane shape and impressive backend hitting power on medium oil patterns that begin to break down.

The motion of this beautiful ball is tuned with a 5500 Grit Laser-Scanned, Polished (LSP) finish at the factory using Power Gel® Shine. This gives the Ripcord™ Launch easy length and a snappy backend reaction.

When to Use

Speed Dominant - Bowlers who fit into this category will use the Ripcord Launch as their higher friction performance pearl. This is the ball to use when creating angle on higher friction environments and toward the end of tournament blocks. For the most part, speed dominant players do not need a lot of exceedingly clean balls in their bag, so a benchmark core with a strong pearl cover is a great option for creating angle on friction for these bowlers.

Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers a middle of the bag pearl is absolutely essential. Higher friction house shots necessitate this type of pearl as do most tournament progressions on moderate to longer oil tournament patterns. The versatility of the Torx V2 is an added bonus for balanced bowlers as it will allow for more drilling options for diversity of use.

Rev Dominant Bowlers - The most rev dominant bowlers often need cleaner and more angular balls due to their rev rate creating early friction. For this reason, the players who are most rev dominant need to be invested in balls from the right side of the ball chart that make angular motion. The Ripcord Launch could serve as a go-to ball for rev dominant bowlers who compete in a high friction environment because of the benchmark type core paired with a clean and angular coverstock.
