I want a honey badger after dark!

but which combo? or both.

but i think it'd be cool to have the S30 pearl cover with the honey badger core

Can we call Global and demand these ideas be made? We'll call it, "field research"

I'm in

Yes that’s the one! I could live with these four HB’s: the HB claw as the first out of the bag, the HB gold pearl as a ball down, the HB s30 pearl, and the HB urethane.

Let’s make it happen! Who do we contact??

The more I look at it, the more intriguing the Honey Badger Urethane looks.

Stronger Urethane like the Hot Cell never interested me that much, but I like the potential I see with this release

Release date for the Honey Badger Urethane is right around the corner! I'm about to put in a huge order and want to know what I should compare the HBU to. I'm grabbing a NIB Shadow Ops and am going to go something like 45*4*35 on that, and want to know if you'd like to see a comparison to that or a HBU compared to a Claw drilled 45*4.5*65.

I would like to see a comparison of the Shadow Ops and HBU drilled with the same layout if you will. I love my SO and am looking forward to the HBU to give a different look.

I saw a video of the SO at 45x4x35, it was incredible! Good choice!

Yeah, one of our staffers drilled 2 of the Shadows, and the one drilled like that went through the pins much better. I usually drill urethane tame and end up never using it lol.

Maybe it’s the same video. The one I saw had one pin up that looked average, and then this layout that had him going deeper and deeper to try to see how far the SO would go. I was super impressed.

I would personally say almost always go with a max to near max flare pin to pap on Urethane.

The more I throw the newer urethane, I'll have to agree. I had a Hype urethane that I drilled weak and with a small Val angle, and it rolled horrible, so I drilled another really strong and I couldn't get it past the arrows on anything. So Max flare and fast response for me! Give me a little shape for goodness sake!

Wouldn't mind seeing it compared to the Purple Pearl Hammer....
