Upcoming EBI 2018 releases
« on: January 06, 2018, 02:04:40 PM »
Verdict Pearl already announced

January 2, 2018 approved list updated:

C300 Lit Pearl
Ebonite GB3
Track Alias
Track Ultra Heat

Hammer Rip'd Solid
Hammer Rip'd (approved in December)

I'm assuming both the Rip'd releases are overseas

Has EBI sped up their release schedule or am I just imagining this because it is essentially 4 brands to manage?
Current Rotation:
Code X
Phaze II
Code Black
Marvel Pearl
IQ Tour Solid
Hy-Road X
Hy-Road Pearl

It's the 4 brand thing I feel like, although it is the start of tournament season, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Both of the Rip'd are USA release

also coming out with a Lit pearl (Columbia), Ultra heat (track). The Alias looked very impressive at a Demo day today. HP ball, very versatile depending on the drilling. Will let you know  ;)

I did an Ebonite Demo Day without having any intention of buying anything, but ended up pulling the trigger on the Black Paradox and the Lit. Those 2 balls were that impressive. EBI is putting out some really good stuff right now.

Agreed on the Paradox. The original got me missing the OG Track stuff. I almost pulled the trigger on one. Glad to see EBI pull themselves back out of bad ball reaction hell.

Yeah, they are relevant again, and coming from me, that means they've arrived. I had been shitting on them for years.

Yeah. The Paradox Black is really, really good. Haven't seen many throwing the Lit but the original Verdict was nice too. EBI is back. Getting hard to convince myself that I don't need anything new...

Alright alright, Paradox Black seems solid. What else from EBI would you grab up on a can't miss situation?

Black Paradox, Affinity, Black Widow Gold, and Spoiler are my favorite pieces right now.  I throw the Black Paradox 70% of the time. One of the best balls I've ever thrown.

The Gauntlet Fury is 1st out of my bag these days. It needs a little bit of friction to really come alive, not for heavy oil unless you change the surface. The miss area with this ball is literally why you can take a 180 ave and make him 190-200 without doing anything else IMO

Isn't the black paradox the same as the purple except color?

Same as the original blue. Purple was a pearl

I threw the Paradox and the Lit side-by-side at the demo day. They're actually pretty close to each other. The Lit was just a little earlier and covered a few more boards, but still not a lot of difference.
 
Getting both was more impulse than need. I've just drilled them up for different hook shapes. Both are excellent pieces.

Verdict Pearl and Fierce Phobia both look like winners
Spoiler and Gauntlet Fury have gotten a lot of love as recent releases

Can't go wrong with the Eruption Pro, Vibe, Kinetic, or GB series

I liked the Brunswick family for awhile but now EBI has gone to the top of my list. I'm curious to see the GB3 and Ultra Heat
