Raging Inferno
« on: August 06, 2003, 07:37:20 AM »
I was thinking about picking this ball up but was wondering if it is a true oil ball.  Is it particle or particle pearl? I'm kinda confuse about this ball.

To add to the potential confusion, has anyone seen the small ad in last month's BTM for the Hammer Turbo Diesel? It said that this Diesel has some pearl in it; I think the point was to make it skid further if it is polished. Yet, I had not seen any mention of this pearl on the Hammer website of one the ballreviews listing.

I'm wondering if my Yankee Doodle is a pearl...
It goes long, with the time the white on it is more
the color of a real pearl, just wondering...
By Ebonite they say it is plastic, red, blue and white but,
you know, the important thing is what you see and how
the ball reacts. So, I am the happy owner of a pearl ball.

Just had my Riot Zone in my hands last night!
Wish I didn't(killing em in practice with it), but it was definetely a Pearl particle and looked it!

My Smash/r also looks like a Pearl to me but so did the Raging Red Fuze, Green Black Monster and Red Black to me.
Brunswick does not call them that!

The last solid Reactive I saw Brunswick make was the Demolition Zone and now the Time Zone.  I also threw my new Walter Ray in practice yesterday and it was definetly solid also!

Now we can all rest easy......look what I have!

The question to answer #2 was : What is the SmashR Cover ?

ENJOY !

Hi Jeff,

Yes, we do watch the boards very closely but have waited so far to interact. I might start soon when we slow down from Trade shows this summer.

To answer your first question... The Inferno and Raging Inferno are both Pearlized coverstocks. The Pearl we use in our coverstocks does not effect the performance of the ball like other company's. When we tested a solid Vs. pearl color ball we might see only a 1/2 board of difference in overall hook and length. You do see the perception that the pearl ball will go longer and snap more on the backend but our testing with CATS and Thro Bot show that it is very small.

Question #2... Only the silver is pearlized on the SmashR. The blue is a solid color.

Hope this answered your questions.... If not write me back.

Doug, How dare you try to throw some common sense into a nice "Raging" argument!

The most interesting thing is that here is yet another combination of solid and Pearl within the same coverstock.

So far we have the Thing, the Element, the Turbo Diesel, and the SmashR. I know there are more but I can't think of them right now. I think the Hex may also have been one, but that is not confirmed. Oh, the Morich Hercules is also one, and it has particles to boot!

Wow, I've realized from this thread that most of the long time users of this site don't have a clue as to the difference between solid and pearl.

Let me break it down...

Pearl is the actual process of pearlization that the ball goes through.  A ball can be a single solid pearl but can still be a pearl since it goes through the process of pearlization when the resin is "glazed"(to put it in laymens terms).  Good examples of this is the Riot Zone and EMB pearl which are both pearls but one solid color.  Thus it is pearl because IT GOES THROUGH THE PROCESS OF PEARLIZATION AT THE FACTORY!

Next, Solid resin balls can be many different color swirls examples are the Track Hex, Track Voodoo, Columbia Wicked, Monster Bruiser, Monster Smash/R, Inferno(WHICH ARE NOT PEARLS PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS OF PEARLIZATION!).  Solid resin swirl colored balls are not pearls just because they are many different shiny colors.  

So all in all, it doesn't matter what the ball looks like, it's the process of pearlization that it goes through so don't judge a book by its cover.  The chemists that work for these companies know what they are doing.

I didn't mean to be a jerk about it, I just want to shed some light so everyone can understand.

According to Brunswick, the Smash/R is a combo...solid and pearl...
