I think the OP is asking as some of the hp 900g one were storm poured.  The cover thickness was also storm quality.

Hey OP I feel all 3 color balls are storm covers, however maybe the full operation is up and running the storm way on San Antonio. In the past the San Antonio plant couldn't do 3 color pours...It was east to tell which were storm influenced and which weren't.

Now it's a lil tougher...

Dreams/respect looked to be storm cover and storm core

Inception/truth look to be all 900g now... I'd check the cover thickness beyond that I wouldn't care.

I'm a lil upset with my loco solid it's got it's lil 3/4" thick cover :( clearly poured in San Antonio...Great ball tho. My buddies cracked within 20 games...Crossing my fingers on mine

The AMF GREAT ESCAPE is a tri color....It could very well be, only way to know it to drill one...Lol

Tri color pours on the 900 Global and AMF equipment are being done at San Antonio with 900 Global covers. San Antonio has had tri color capability since the Respect Solid/Dream Big Pearl/Escape.

Which also means we could have storm and roto stuff being poured there with 3colors which makes sense on the hustles. I wonder what else...

I have the new nighthawk stealth se  and was wondering who is putting the cover on it.

Bill, Glad to help. I'd have to imagine the partnership with Storm was done in large part due to the new manufacturing plant 900 Global built a few years back. I'm sure that increases the manufacturing capability of both Storm and Roto Grip and I'd imagine does include some tri color balls.

The Nighthawk Stealth SE and all AMF balls are poured, marketed and sold by 900 Global. I hope that clears up any confusion.
