Brunswick 150 Mineralite is here... IDIOT1 Drill?

Came in an old Brunswick box, identical to the Rhino Pro Gold of that era. Ball came out in 1994, so Hamlin doesn't think it has PK18, but rather PK17. (YESSS!!!)

Probably just like my Red/Black Monster in my profile. I contacted the PBA to see if this ball would be Grandfathered into the approved list, we'll see what they have to say.

I kind of want to find out what core is inside, Rico thinks it is a Sapphire Zone core without the dense insert. He's in Canadia right now, eh! What's that all abooot?! Everyone point and laugh!

It is too old to be an LT48 Gold, and just barely too old to be PK18.

No biggie, maybe I should email buddies about it to tell them.

Well I'm about to order the other 15lb'er.... Makes total sense that it is a Gold Rhino Pro.

Any objections?

Nick-
I'm positive. A Freind of mine's father order 500 for a Pro-Am they had. It is identical.

I can attest that it is a Rhino Pro Gold. Almost zero flare, real clean thru the fronts, then grabs in the back. Nothing sudden, I just copied the layout from my retired Gold.
