I have a teammate who still uses one of the original Gold Rhino Pros.

Looks like they should have remade the Teal Rhino Pro. One just sold on ebay for $305 plus shipping. And a Purple sold for $207 plus shipping. Maybe they need to remake the entire line!

Maybe we will one day ;)

For me, the Gold rolls earlier than the Platinum Ringer. This one is better suited for a little more oil with its stronger core and cover.

Being the Storm guy that I am it kind of shocked me that I would immediately fall in love with a ball from Brunswick. This ball is stupid angular. And lets me play areas of the lane I normally would not be able to. Definitely an A+ ball

Several thoughts,

Those old Rhinos with their .22 diff often don't have much except on the freshest of backends.  IMHO.

The new Vintage series I think is intelligently adapted to today's conditions with their higher diffs.

I note frequently the diffs seem to be increased slightly for many lower medium to medium diff balls like the diff series when they go to pearl.  Probably some of our very knowledgeable ball reps out here know why.  I would guess it is some trade of traction from the tires versus flare from the engine downlane that is needed from Pearls.

As to stupid angular I note the OP Brunsnick video where his drilling made it move almost like an IQ tour pearl drilled pin up(the way they look in my house!
Very midlane and smooth.  It sounds like based on drilling this ball will be very versatile.

Regards,

Guys haven't seen a bunch of talk lately on this one,  I punched on up and shot 782 out of the bow with it.  Great Bang for the Buck here! :)

ball is crazy angular, drilled my first one up with 5" pin and 35 val angle and it was storm angular and clean, did a 2nd one up 5" pin and 70 val with a hole 2" down the val and im in love with it, still very clean and angular but not overly so
