Interesting to see a symmetric as a high performance, high hook potential release for change.  I can't wait!

Buddies has them listed CURRENTLY, for delivery on 11/1/16, at $174.95 delivered. Kind of high but it uses that GREAT Quantum Mushroom core.

I was planning on getting a new bag already, and to have another Quantum plus a bag would be well worth it for that price,

Will they still come in the oversized crown royal bags?

Now we need a return of the original hybrid.... Quantum HELIX!! ... even if it's a Viz-A-Ball that looks just like original. BrunsNick. send up the good word!

Looks like the Quantum Forest Green has the same coverstock as the Danger Zone. Brunswick also created a new Pro Performance category for these balls on their site.

I think/believe that the Quantum name was never a gimmick, except for the Helixes. They had potential, back then, but were at best a niche ball and they were very expensive to make.

The "no-filler" core, like many Lane Masters, some Visionary & Lord Field and some of the original  Quantum balls, has me even more interested.

And the Fire Pearl has the same coverstock as the Danger Zone 2016 SE.

Could someone please explain the RG Max and Min on Brunswick's web site?
Does that mean that when you buy a Quantum (or any other Brunswick ball) that the RG of the ball OOB will be anywhere in that range?

RG MAX 2.610
RG MIN 2.557

Every ball has an RG Min and RG Max. Companies usually only report the RG Min

And the RG min and RG max is how the differential is calculated. As one can see on the Brunswick site, .053 is the diff (diff = track flare)

Take RG Max (2.610) and subtract the RG Mix (2.557) and you have the diff of the ball...and yes, this is how diff is calculated for every ball from every company.

Note: this is not intermediate diff found on asymmetrical balls.
