Eon... Prodigy Esque
« on: July 04, 2019, 03:34:22 PM »
For those of you that threw/throw a lot of Storm, the original Eon is very reminiscent of the Prodigy in my opinion. I've always been a fan of the particle coverstocks. They create traction much differently from the oil soakers of today. I have my Eon at 2000 to provide more of the box Prodigy reaction. Low RG, high diff, earlier reading sanded pearl cover are all attributes from the Prodigy. Hopefully some others can chime in on this take. While it's currently on sale at Buddies for $90, I would highly recommend checking this ball out if you were a fan or wanted a Prodigy for modern conditions.

I just picked up a Eon, here's to good times!!

My Eon is pin up and about 3 and 1/2 in from my pap, and I'm on my second respect... I'm more of a respect guy myself. But I think the aeon would be better with surface aka the infinite...


you want to know the difference the Eon is very marvel Pearl like and I would assume the infinite is very prodigy like, but then the respect to me would be kind of like if they made asymmetrical hyper cell fused...I got them very close but they're fused I think is a little bit more office spot in their respect is a little bit more mid lane.

I got mine oob still, gonna get the infinite soon I think to really test this prodigy thing out.

How is your drilled? Also are you still testing the Respect hybrid?

Eon reminds me of the pastel color phase

At box finish or at whatever your preferred polished surface is how strong is the Eon off the spot?

For me personally, I keep it at 1000-2000 so it isn't very aggressive downlane. Much more of an aggressive roll phase. I have seen some be decent downlane. Comparable to a Marvel Pearl, maybe a tad smoother than that.

That's pretty smooth overall then. Nice, kind of what I was hoping to be the case. Thank you.
