I have one. Its drilled 4 1/2 pin to PAP. Its pretty long and a little less twitchy than the Doom. . I used it over the weekend on some fried wood lanes and it was stilll a little aggressive, but was the weakest ball I had with me. I wish I would of had a pink hammer! Decnet ball not too flippy, but skids on oil big time.

I agree with Dave. Definately not for use in heavy oil. Descent ball, nice recovery, good backend reaction. Just don't expect this thing to hook out of the building. I was actually surprised that this ball is as strong as it is in the midlane since it is mostly advertised for its alleged big back end.

My Teammate throws one. But doesnt use it when there a lot of oil. Usually uses it when the lanes break and down. It a lille too skiddy on oil.

That is exactly what I am looking for right now. The ball I am using now over hooks when the lanes get a little dryer so the Toxic might be a nice back up ball for me. I think i will give one a try.

The Toxic is supposed to be between the Doom and the Pain. A little more midlane than the Doom and a little less flippy. Less midlane than the Pain and a little more back end.

What ball are you using now?

IMHO if you want something under the Absolute, and stick with that line, the Doom would be a better choice. You can get it drilled to arc more on the back end rather than be skid/flip. My teamate has a Toxic and is very hard off the drys and a pretty strong ball over all on a THS. If you wanted something in the Inferno line, you could go with a Smokin or a Radical, they compliment the Absolute nicely.

good luck!

The Toxic has been very popular despite its unusual coloring. I've seen a lot of different bowlers use this ball on a variety of conditions. It seems very versital and good for most (if not all) types of bowlers.

Unusual coloring? Lime green with sliver streaks is unusual? wink I will say least its better looking than the Pain, too many purple balls out thier imho. How are Dooms and Pains selling out west? I dont see too many of them around here, but that is a solid line at a good price. You could build a nice arsenal with all three and a spare ball imho.
