Strike Kings will be weaker than Misfit Pearl. The Differential is only .028 and the cover is milder. Compared to the competitors stuff, it would probably compare closer to the Breeze.

I'll be sure to take pics when I get my samples.

Black Pearl is probably my next ball. Either that or get the pitches fixed on my Teal Rhino Pro and use it for the same purpose.

Read the info, the Strike King is a polyester (PLASTIC) ball.  --  JohnP

John, It is early and you may need some sleep. When I went to the Brunswick page all 4 Strike Kings have SK13 Reactive listed as the cover. If you clicked on the link in the OP, that takes you to a TZone which we all know are plastic....but this thread is not on TZones, it is on the new Strike King line that will replace the Slingshots....

The original link posted is for the new T-zone, I added a link for the Strike Kings.

you can't  add a physics term to a bowling term and expect it to mean something.

Dough....

Teal Rhino Pro....isn't that just the same as today's Avalanche Solid?

I think those cores are a little lower rg and a little lower diff than the strike king.  It has to be a different shaped move.   I have an Avalanche pearl, not bad...but often a little too little on most top hats, not bad later!

I don't have a solid.

REgards,

Lefty,

The Teal Rhino Pro has a weaker cover than the Avalanche Solid (PK18), but you are right about the lower RG and differential.  I bet the Strike-King would give me more pop on the backend.  Polished up, the Teal is a great down-and-in ball, especially for the extreme outside shot.

Thanks for convincing me to get one!  (Like I needed any convincing lol).

You also have to keep in mind that a cover manufactured 20 yrs as opposed to today can't be compared....one they are manufacturing in a different plant and 2 the ingredients & manufacturing have improved.

You may want to look at the Ringer.  Very clean through the fronts with some pop on the backend.

The Strike King should be a step down from the Ringer with similar shape and reaction.
