The Sky Raptor™ brings the legendary Raptor™ line soaring back for worldwide release! Featuring the new Affliction™ V2 core and new Dynamic Infusion™ pearl reactive technology, the Sky Raptor™ is specifically designed to create downlane motion in heavy oil environments. You can have confidence that the Sky Raptor™ will clear the front of the lanes with ease and come screeching back with speed to attack the pocket.

The new Affliction V2 core features a density upgrade, which gives the Sky Raptor higher rev potential and more track flare. Both performance aspects increase overall hook potential and provide an RG and differential that are tuned in for higher volumes of oil.

Extensive testing went into the development of the new Dynamic Infusion™ Pearl Reactive cover stock for the Sky Raptor™. It digs in the oil and creates the angle needed on the backend as heavy oil patterns begin to break down and transition. Utilizing a stronger formulation of the Infusion™ coverstock system, Dynamic Infusion™ Pearl Reactive technology packs a larger punch than previous versions. A 5000 grit LSS finish was used to provide more traction in heavier volumes of oil. We intentionally left the polish off the Sky Raptor™ to give it more bite!

When to Use

Speed Dominant - Most pearlized coverstocks provide so much length that they are nearly impossible to use for speed dominant bowlers. With a huge symmetrical core and the true heavy oil pearl cover, the Raptor Sky is a pearl that speed dominant players can use confidently without the typical fear of a ball that is “too clean.”

Balanced Bowlers - For balanced bowlers there will be many uses for a ball like the Raptor Sky. First of all, for players who prefer to see down lane motion, this is a pearl that can be used early in blocks and on higher volumes when pearls are normally difficult to use. Additionally, this is a strong enough pearl that when the highest rev rate players make their move in to create angle, balanced bowlers can keep up with the moves. So often, balanced bowlers lose pins on the highest rev rate players just because they can not move in as quickly. This Raptor Sky allows for aggressive moves and angles.

Rev Dominant Bowlers - Rev dominant and two handed bowlers often prefer to allow for down lane motion and to use faster responding coverstocks early in competition. This allows the rev-dominant player to “open up” a pattern earlier and stay ahead of the moves. The Raptor Sky is the the pearl that lets rev dominant players be aggressive with moves across the lane. So often, those first moves have to be made using smoother solid reactive balls because of the traction they provide. Now there is a pearl that can make the shape down lane while still giving that confidence in the middle of the lane.
