I really like my reaction that I am getting out of the Edge Pearl. I drilled mine pin under ring with cg kicked out and a p3 hole. I also have a problem with over/under with pearl covers, so what I did was break the surface with a 3000 grit pad by hand. With this I am still able to get a good backend reaction, but not as over/under. The Edge pearl really is the same reaction I get out of my Melee Jab, so if that was a ball that you liked then head out and pick up a Edge Pearl.
