Well, the OX-DELTA Ball has pretty much the same story as all the other balls that make claims of increased strength or "efficiency:" Unfortunately, 1) It appears to be an offense-oriented ball. 2) It isn't the Fire Ball or the Explosive Ball. 3) Therefore, nobody cares.
Once you get the Fire Ball, you won't care either. ;)
Of course, that isn't to say that the OX-DELTA ball doesn't have any special abilities beyond increased attack power. But since it's unlikely it could ever be as good as the Fire Ball, it's easier to just assume it doesn't.
This wall of text has been brought to you courtesy of one of the board's resident spectrum children (and Linux users).
I have the OX-delta equipped to my first ship, and it does very well. I have the fire ball equipped to my second ship with an ice ball to go with it (not only is it thematically awesome, they work together well.)
