Perfect Rival
« on: December 31, 1969, 06:00:00 PM »
- Color: Purple/Green/Silver All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown.
- Core: "Spinner"
- Veneer: "Perfect 300" - Reactive
- Surface: 4000 Abralon
- Hook Rating: Oil - 36, Backend - 30

- Reaction: Strong Flip
- RG Differential: .040 (Medium Flare) on a scale of .000-.080 Low Flare-High Flare
- RG Average: 2.49 (Low) on a scale of 2.43-2.80 Very Low-High Break Point
- Recommended Lane Condition: Medium to Heavy Oil
- A few tiny pit holes in the cover stock of the ball are normal
- Description: The Perfect Rival was developed to complement both the Rival and Arch Rival in terms of total hook. This is the third ball in the series and features another great shell developed by the chemists at EBI called “Perfect 300”. The chemistry produces more friction than the Arch Rival’s 300 Plus, but less than the original shell on the Rival. Perfect 300, combined with our proven Spinner core, produce a ball that is great when there is oil left of your target line out of the box, and with some polish will outperform both previous models on the backend of the lane.

Length: 41 Ft.   
Volume: 50 Units

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):   THS


Likes:    This ball reacts earlier than the Rival and Arch Rival. A good ball to fit between a Resurgence and a Rival. Great on House shots and a decent reaction on Sport Patterns. 

Dislikes:  Need to keep the surface up more than with other balls. If the surface isn't kept fresh it seems to lose a lot of pin carry.
