I remember the Rhino Pro series very well.  The Purple Rhino Pro was the first reactive ball I ever threw and it was impressive.  The rest of the line also was really good.  Seeing the Gold come back with an updated core/cover should do really well (although bringing the original light bulb core back would have been really sweet to see).

A phantom with a modern cover would be sweet!

Most of the asymmetrical series Zones in the '04-06 range starting with the Time Zone was the phantom core

All of the Zone balls from 04 - 06 where amazing balls. The Time Zone and the Vapor Zone were two of my favorites. Hopefully they release those along with the Inferno with the Vintage line  ::)

They re-release those and I'm back on board. Only Brunswick balls that corner.

I don't know but I think the Time Zone and the Revolution ECX shared the same core.  I owned both.

The Time Zone was good but the ECX....oh my.....One of my all time favorites!  I just loved that coverstock wrapped around that core....Sweet!

Why did I ever trade it away!?

If Brunswick had been smart they would have named their offshoot brand Zone.  Not many people that didn't like at least one of those balls.

The Warp Zone......they remake that and I will be buying their entire inventory. That might be my favorite ball of all time.......Its sister ball, the Almighty, was my all-time favorite until my purchase of the Mystic Aura!

Brunsnick,

I am still intrigued with this video and the roll of this ball.  In comparing specs this ball is much higher rg and quite a bit more diff. or flare.  I am sure the yellow doesn't hurt!

Yet the way you have this setup, it reminds me of the IQ tour Pearl.  If I may, what are your specs?  ie pap and what is this drilling?  You know...dual angle and all that.

I realize this ball could be set up in many more ways to get dramatically different and usually bigger reactions.  My Vintage LT 48 with a strong pin up is very big late!

Do you see this setup as looking like a IQ tour pearl with your setup and specs on this ONE?

Regards,

Luckylefty

LL, you are going to get the PC answer when asking a salesman to compare his product to that of his competitor.

Not to speak for Nick, but there is a very good chance he hasn't thrown any competitor's balls since he went to work for Brunswick, or at least none that weren't behind a closed doors test.

Its,

Maybe you are right aobout what he will share....but maybe he will show his PAP.

That may give me an idea of how he created this particular roll.  BrunsNick?

Sure 4 1/2 x 1/2 PAP

I use this drilling on a lot of balls, it's 5" from axis with a 65 VAL angle. First angle didn't matter a ton, I just didn't want an extra hole to start.

And no, I haven't thrown any competitors balls.

Nick,

As always Thanks!  Great video and great information.

I have now seen 3 or 4 different videos of this ball with multiple drillings!  It looks like a very versatile piece that a lot of reactions can be created from!
