I just saw on one of the internet seller's web sites that Ebonite has introduced a new very light oil ball named after one of its old superstars, the Crush/R. Now it only has a pancake core; so, it would seem to be their mildest resin ball.

Oddly I don't yet see it on Ebonite's own web site.

The Cyclone used to be their mildest ball, but, in reality that ball had the potential to handle as much as true medium oil. So it wasn't really a true entry level ball.

Now they have also introduced the Turbo/R which handles oil a step below the Cyclone, while the Crush/R is at least a full step below the Turbo in oil handling and probably hook potential.

It's nice to see another brand filling all its niches, even though these new mild balls probably won't be huge sales success.

Yeah margins not great on those more than likely.  I know I went the cheap route for my weak pearl and picked up a Path Rising.  Those Ebi balls were my next choice though and probably are more versatile (Path Rising ended up being even weaker than I expected for my style).  Wow Path Rising went up so the Crush/R is now cheaper (pancake core though).  Turbo/R is almost the same price now with GB coverstock and a real core its a bargain.  For a few dollars more would probably get the Cyclone though.  Great prices all around.

The Crush/R you're seeing is a Dick's/Sports Authority special. Along with the predrilled Zooms, that was your bowling experience at those stores.

Thanks; I didn't know that.
That might explain why it's not on Ebonite's own website.

But, then, I wonder how come BowlingBall.com is carrying them?
and I wonder how close it is to the Scout Reactive?
(To save costs, it might just be a differently labeled Scout???)
