I currently have a Sigma Tour (pin down, CG kicked out towards PAP) and a Venom Strike (pin up, CG kicked out towards PAP).

I'd like to get a ball above the Sigma Tour for heavier sport shots.

Wondering whether the Covert Revolt, Cruel Intent or Raptor Talon would be the best choice (I currently have NO asymmetrical equipment in my bag...I have quite a high tilt and I've tended to shy away from them).

Any input from someone who has thrown most of the would be most appreciated.

You can't go wrong w/any of the balls you mentioned, but I would lean towards the Cruel Intent. Everyone I've drilled for people has come back w/great feedback. They love it !!! I have 2 drilled up & rarely get to use them because they do need some oil in the first 20+ feet. However, when I have used them, I love the way the C.I. revs up but doesn't burn out too fast, leaving plenty for the b/e. Hope this helps & stay MOTIV-ated !!

I would go either Cruel Intent or Raptor Talon - both should react nicely thru heavy oil shots.

I would go with the Covert Revolt. The balls you have are symmetrical solids with low rg's. The stronger ball has a higher diff for you right now. If you add the revolt to your bag you would be adding another solid shell with a stronger shell and more diff. It's an easier progression and consistent with what you already have in your bag. I think it's a slam dunk.

The other two are asyms and would provide a very different shape rather than a complimentary shape in my opinion.
