Closest in review specs is either a Tank Rampage or a Lord Field Old School for true urethane.


Closest in spec numbers below:
The Classic U2   2.46   0.043
Tank   2.48   0.034
Hot Cell   2.52   0.056
True Motion 2.521 0.035
Avalanche  2.524   0.024
Natural Pearl   2.53   0.04
Karma Urethane   2.539   0.04

The tank does seem pretty close. Sadly that ball I can't find anywhere either. Its all the newer tanks i keep seeing. I did come across the Hammer Blue Vibe RG (2.51) Diff (0.039. So that might end up being the one if I can't find an actual U2 or Original Tank.

Blue Vibe is reactive, so with you looking for a urethane ball, it will not fit. The core numbers are close, yes, but the cover is what dictates the motion. I think the Black Hammer will be the closest current choice.
