Idol with the fused cover stock.  Was really holding out hope that it would be the micro trax pearl.

The Idol Pearl looks like the real winner to me!

For what it's worth I'm sure the Roto Grip team tested an Ido Pearl variation with the pearl version of the MicroTrax coverstock. Must not have been as impressive as the eTrax. Now hopefully that means a better ball overall and not just one that hooks more...

I really like the color of that ball though. That shade of light/sky(ish) blue gets me every time.

I'm not sure about the Winner Solid being "Midnight Black" as stated. Looks black, fuchsia and green to me.

I think it's more so about the current HP3 system. I would rather see a MicroTrax Pearl with surface as the third ball (rather than hybrid). If they do that, I will be happy about their choice.

Just curious, has anyone thrown a ball with MicroTrax Pearl on it? What's it roll like?

In regards to the Winner Solid it looks like it has the solid version of the Hustle HYB's coverstock. I'm a big fan of the latter, if the Winner Solid plays anything like a stronger version of it... sheesh. Roto Grip sure likes dominating the hook-per-dollar in the low/mid-tier market
