That's true, even with the Rip'd recently too. I guess I should have put it more that these didn't scream top shelf to me.

The Destiny Solid 100% has my attention though

Totally dismissed the Rip'd, but yeah. The Rip'd is a great line.

I did see a review of the Amazing Rip'd, which while being an overseas release, does tell me that they are looking to complete the Rip'D line as the Amazing Rip'D is a pearl. If the Rip'D and Rip'D Solid are anything to live up to, this may be a killer 1-2-3 lineup for Hammer, especially if it gets released in the US or renamed and released.

Looks like it made the list on 5/15/18.

"Amazing" Rip'd? Lol pass


In the bag ['15 Respect, Respect Pearl, Honey Badger, Break Down, Black boost]

You know how they get when they named balls overseas. I mean, Warrior Supreme basically came from overseas. The entire One series is still going strong, with the last release being the Ultimate Angular One. Amazing Scandal ring a bell?

My point here is that they already seem to have a Pearl Rip'D in the works, and I wouldn't be surprised if it makes an appearance this fall, let alone at Bowl Expo.

I see they jacked the prices up for the destiny... Supposed to be a cyclone replacement but going for about $20 more  ???

While they are Cyclone replacements, I'd reserve judgement until we see them being thrown. The Cyclone's offered a lot of bang for the buck but these could be more.

Using the GB 11.2 cover, it could be a situation like the Roto Grip Show Off and All Out Show Off where it's HP2 price for HP3 performance to use Roto's system as an example

Can say the Cyclone replacement,  Pearl is very sharp looking. All I can say.:)

The Destiny balls start up about 4-5 feet sooner than the Cyclones.

I'm wondering how that Onyx Vibe would compare to a Hustle Ink or IQ Tour Solid.
Current Rotation:
Code X
Phaze II
Halo Pearl *Coming Soon*
Code Black
Hy-Road X
IQ Tour Solid
Hy-Road Pearl

Probably more like an ink. They still got down lane well back in the day...just less pop and more control off the spot.

In my opinion, the Vibes are more like the Turbine cored balls from Storm (in terms of cover and core match).

  Destiny priced at $94 on this site. We get $150  drilled.

My Destiny solid will be here tomorrow and I bought it for $79.99 shipped! I'm probably going to get the pearl as well. The weight block with .053 diff is a lot for that price ball, then you add the GB Phenom cover! It sounds like a win/win to me! Just my $.02, Bruce
