When was the R2X cover released? What balls used it?

I know marvel pearl has it. Just wondering if there was any other ball using it.

Todd,

I am pretty sure it started on the Gravity Shift in 2008

All 3 of the Marvels have it as does the Fire Road.

Both Dimensions and the Prodigy have that cover as well.

I am checking Storms website to see if there are any others

I have got to beg to differ with you on that. http://www.stormbowling.com/products/balls/classic/attitude-shift?search=&exclusiveClassic=false

I went to the seminar for the Gravity as it was actually introduced at the same time as the Roto Grip Cell. R2X was the cover on the Gravity and that was brought up because R2S was on the Rapid Fire which came out around the same time. The Pluto was also released so those 4 balls were discussed as to differences and there was a light on the lane demo from a couple of local staffers who had them already drilled.

Not that I obsess but:

Gravity Shift - pearl
Virtual Gravity - solid
Virtual Energy - hybrid
Dimension - solid
Second Dimension - pearl ETM
Prodigy - pearl ETM
Marvel - solid
Marvel Pearl - pearl
Modern Marvel - hybrid
Fire Road - pearl

R2X along with Monsoon are my favorite Storm covers.

How could I have forgotten the best selling Storm release in the Virtual Gravity? Virtual Energy was a favorite also.

I could talk Storm releases all day!  ;D
