Nah, you've actually identified the deal there.  Even if they did mesh the charts together, it wouldn't help.

Eh, there would still be guesswork.  Too many variables for it to be a straight up gospel for everyone. 

I wish we could get a chart that merged the Storm and RG covers/cores. I know we got the separated one, just merge them for us to relieve the guess work.

Right, and I certainly don't mean core and cover combos.

Just one that brings the cover side together and the core sides together. At a glance it looks like R2S is higher than Psyched..but is it? Then we have Amped way up the chart on a ball like the Dare Devil, yet people say R4S pearl is just way too strong. Looking across the board, they look even...

I might just be rambling here, if so, apologies.

Hmm I always thought the hy road with a strong cover would be fun. I don't know how the nano covers react though.

I'm not a fan of high RG or monster covers on medium cores so I don't think I would personally be getting it. They usually have issues like the Show Off is having.

It's not a good ball.  The cover is way too strong for the core, it's one of those over/under balls that chews a shot up.  Too strong to stand right, not enough core to move left, and I'd never use it on a house shot.  Tried to polish it, just turned into a puke monster.  It DOES have a place, it's just a very small place or a small window of usability, and in that specific circumstance, I can think of better reactions.

Ive had 2 hyroads in my time and found both of them to dynamic of a ball for me.I would think the stronger cover would tame it down.

Might tame the shape down, but it's going to hook a ton more.  That Nano cover is no joke.

I never threw one but I don't remember the Hyroad solid being a hit with R2S on it can't imagine with NANO cover.

Isn't the NRG cover on the Marvel S the Nano cover?

The Hyroad Solid was a tragedy.  The Rocket Ship is the ball the Hyroad Solid should have been.
