Brunswick has the Prism Warp Hybrid coming out too. Seems like an odd choice with the original Prism Hybrid out there, but they like to release a bunch of stuff so whatever.

The Melee Jab Blood Red is interesting. Always have to keep an eye on any Jab release.

It's just the same as the Jab SE but in red. I guess because the Jab SE was actually a limited release they felt the need to do a normal full release even though it's a different color.

The Ebonite Aero interests me the most. I seem to get along better with taller cores and I still need a new oil ball after bowling eventually opens again in California

I go back and forth on believing whether the color of a coverstock affects the reaction of a ball. This should be a decent case to test that theory out.

I am more on the non-believing side of that because there are lines out there where multiple colors are released at the same time.  While at the lower price points, they are still not pancake weight blocks.  That would mean balls like the Beast, Rhino, and Turbo would all roll differently because there are 3 or 4 different color schemes.  If there is a difference, it would be so minimal that with the naked eye you could never tell the difference.  It would have to come down to using a Throbot and see if with the same layout, if one ball goes flush and another color of the same ball ends up in a different place as it enters the pocket.  I cant imagine that the (using Beast as an example) Blue/Black/White would roll differently than the Cherry/Gold/White and those 2 would be different than the Purple Sparkle.  I have been wrong before but this would be a cool test for a ball company to do.

I donít think color makes a difference. I believe that companies are always modifying their chemical makeup of the cover stock...  basically, why donít all Hyroads role the same....  why is it there are different reactions from older Hyroads than the ones currently out. Still r2s hybrid, but they donít role the same.
