Roto did it finally...

Idol Pearl on the approved list. Here's to hoping it's a nano Pearl type cover. Winner Solid also on the list

They are going to sell a ton of those if its as good on house shot as one would assume.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

Cant Wait!!! Love my original Idol as long as there is decent oil :) It almost looks like a Hybrid though. I too hope they use a Nano type cover...

Finally? The original Idol came out just 7 months ago. Has it really been that long of a wait? LOL.

Winner Solid kind of odd release. Show Off still in the line and they look very similar in color.

Curious as to what the pearl coverstock is on that Idol Pearl.

"eTrax-P18 Pearl Reactive Coverstock"

As compare to the MicroTrax-S18 Solid on the Idol. Hopefully the new one just their name for the pearl variation of the same(ish) solid coverstock.

I would say think pearl version of Hyper Cell Fused cover. It's E-Trax which I guess is extra traction Hybrid, this being the pearl. MicroTrax would reference the nano particles. I wouldn't count this as a nano pearl but more so just a stronger Peal than Amped Pearl that was on the NRP and DD. Hard comaprison though because NRP is a strong Asymmetric and DD is considerably lower diff.

My speculation is a Marvel Pearl with a bit more traction. Kind of disappointed if my speculation is true though. Reason why, I wanted a Marvel Pearl with faster response to friction. This kind of speaks to being the same but handles more oil. When the Hybrid drops, I'm guessing the cover will be called E-Trax-H19. 

Maybe the Storm Master line Hybrid release next year will fit this need. Ok rambling over.

Just drilled one.  No comparison to Marvel Pearl for me. Stronger off the spot eith better push, but does stand up into a roll.
