Magic Gem cover vs Defiant Soul cover questions?
« on: October 01, 2023, 06:18:59 AM »
I'm looking to see what the cover difference is. The Defiant Soul has the 77H hybrid cover. The Magic has MicroTrax Hybrid Cover stock. I need to know how much stronger or what I can expect to see that is different between the two. Also how similar or not will these balls be.

Making a guess...

Magic Gem will probably be 5-7 boards stronger, more overall motion. The MicroTrax cover is definitely more motion than what the Soul had. Cores are similar but Gem is earlier revving

I would agree withSVstar34. I had the Defiant Soul as well looking forward to this release. Love my Exotic due to core cover combo. I can see the Magic being a stronger Defiant. Maybe a little earlier due to the 2.47 vs 2.49 core on the Defiant..

Thanks for the posts. I will probably go with a pin down layout then.

After seeing some reviews I don't believe the Magic Gem and Defiant Soul are all that comparable. The Magic Gem looks a lot stronger overall. Seems to be really consistent and defined on the backend.

I had a Defiant Soul years ago and was wondering if this would be close too but I don't see it. Shouldn't be a big surprise though since the Gem and Exotic Gem don't seem too much like the original Defiant and Defiant Edge.
