Winner vs. uproar
on: August 09, 2018, 01:11:11 PM
Haven't looked at specs, covers, core numbers etc.


Anyone have both? My uproar will soon be retired.... easily got 125 games on it, I probably got one more resuface left...

I liked the uproar due to it's ability to hold pocket on hooking conditions... something that the wrecker line did not do. The og polished solid shout was close, but not as good when playing deep.

If the winner isn't the answer, what other balls exist that are close? I like to throw 900g, storm, roto...but could be open to trying other brands..

Some reviews have equated the Winner to the Wreck-Em. I could see that from watching video of it as well. Unless you want super clean easy length and big backend, I wouldn't get the Winner.

I would think the Match-Up Black Pearl or Hustle POW would be closer replacements. It would be a stronger ball but maybe whatever they wrap R2S Hybrid around in the Thunderline next.
Prospect Rotation ('18-'19 Season):
Code X
No Rules Pearl
Phaze II
Code Black
Marvel Pearl
IQ Tour Solid
Hy-Road Pearl

Closest in my opinion is the Hustle POW. You might would like the Desert Ops though because I feel it holds the pocket really well and can allow you to chase left when needed.
Main Rotation: Buzzsaw Carbide LRG, No Rules Pearl, Torrent, Mission, Purple Pearl Urethane.
New to the party: Hustle Ink, Rocketship
Soon:
Interests: Hy-Road Pearl, GB3 Pearl, Idol, Halo

Good call on the desert ops! I got a breakdown and that thing is pretty good at controlling the pocket!

Now to find one for cheap 😂
