Same cover, different core?
« on: April 15, 2018, 08:48:14 AM »
 A redundant question no doubt, but one I feel the need to ask.

 I have a ball that I have been shooting really well with. Seems to read most patterns well, and has a predictable read. Easy to get through the fronts, strong but not snappy off the breakpoint, and never “lies” to me about the backend.

 I have the chance to get another ball really cheaply. This ball has the exact same cover, with a different core.

 It has a little lower RG, and a lower diff.  Not a weak core by any means, just not quite as dynamic as the other one.


 Since coverstock and surface finish predicate so much of a balls reaction, what difference do you guys think I would see between the two?

 I know. It’s all pure speculation and conjecture, but, if there is a big enough consensus, it might be worth a shot.
Brilliance realizes it has limits, ignorance does not.

In general, it will be close.  It will pick up a little earlier and not hook as much or sharply on the back end.
