Truth Tour vs Idol... Anyone thrown both?
« on: March 11, 2019, 10:27:25 PM »
Curious if anyone has thrown both and if they saw much of a difference between the two. 

I have an Idol drilled and ended up picking up a Truth Tour because it was too good of a deal not to (80 new b/c it had a shorter pin and higher top weight)

On paper I would expect the Truth Tour to be a few feet longer and less off the spot, but BTM has them right on top of each other...

Any thoughts to share before I put holes in the Truth Tour?  Idol is 60 x 4.5 x 70.  My gut is to go the same layout with the Truth Tour and hope for the best. That's the layout I would use if the Idol were not in the picture and it's one that has been rolling well for me as of late.

Maybe Doom has some insight...?

Thanks guys!

Truth Tour is much slower off the spot. Truth tour literally feels like a urethane ball. Idol can come off of it a little harder than the Truth Tour.
Main Rotation: Verdict, Torrent, Mission, Teal Rhino
Up next: HC Fused, Match Up Black#2, Torrent#2, Respect#2, Eon
Interest:

You'll absolutely hate it. Send it to me instead!

No, I'm totally kidding. What rook said is spot on. Tt will be much slower.
