Over on the USBC approved ball list has appeared a new ball line from Motiv dubbed: Hydra. I couldn't find any info as to cover-stock or core.

So it's either got the tag core, a new core or a reused core. And lower end cover.

Mystery solved.

my pure guess, Hexion Hybrid or Hexion Pearl with the Halogen core or a new light bulb core with similar numbers.

Hoping it replaced the Storm Ride since storm isn't doing it yet

It won't be. The FreeStyle is closer to the Ride. My Tag Cannon is at least 5-7 boards more than my Ride was

Another pearl skid flippy ball. 

To me it's essentially a re-skin of the Tag Cannon hoping to sell more with the better branding and color scheme. What's interesting is it says the cover is stronger because the cover on the Tag Cannon is already on the strong side
