New Roto - 1 leak, 1 expected, 1 unknown
« on: July 20, 2020, 07:13:34 PM »
Rubicon - 9/4/20 - https://www.aboveallbowling.com/store/p1139/rubicon.html

Coverstock: eTrax-S20™ Solid Reactive
Weight Block: Rondure™ Core
Factory Finish: 3000-grit Polished
A drastic departure from our traditional symmetrical core or symmetrical weightblock designs in the HP3 line, the asymmetrical Rondure™ Core was developed in increase overall ball motion throughout the lane without the aid of an added balance hole.


UFO Pearl - supposedly MicroTrax Pearl. Only a short teaser from Japan on YouTube so far

Attent!on - on approved list. I'd almost expect overseas because the others would be a release each for the HP2(MVP Attitude), HP3(Rubicon), and HP4(UFO Pearl) lines

Rubicon intrigues me!

UFO Pearl will remain overseas if I bet money on it. Doesn’t show it’s a catalog ball.

Still waiting to find some indicators on Atten!on as well.

PhysiX
Code X
Code Black
Axiom Pearl

Interesting, the HP3 line has always been good for at least 1 high quality symmetrical.... interesting to see them going Assym for lower than the HP4... Motiv did it recently with the Venom Recoil and the people who i've talked to who throw it seem to like it.

Rubicons Asym is very low.

15lbs is like .011
14lbs is like .009

Another Core design to mimic weight holes in Syms

It was a similar situation when they did the Critical.

DV8 makes a lot of asymmetrical balls that aren't in their top line too. I like the concept. Get the asymmetrical core action without the snow tire cover. Kinda. The Rubicon still has an eTrax cover.

The page for the Rubicon is up. Nothing for the UFO Pearl or Attent!on though.

Ufo pearl mark my words will come later in the u.s.

Nuclear cell came out in January, and the storm trend, and parallax are coming. 

In my opinion, not the best time for another pearl....it's gonna pull a No rules pearl and show up later.

is it a effect of weight hole rule change bringing about mild assym equipment, I am low rev so me and weight holes giving me a little more kick is  a nice thing.
I think we are going see tons of mild assym with mild to med cover balls coming out.
