No HP2 balls
No symmetric pearls or solids except Hustles.
There is only 1 ball between asymms and Hustles. Idol Synergy that literally nobody is throwing.

Must be an area thing, lot of Synergy's around here and they look really good.

Heard there's a glut of new stuff done and will be showing up from Utah very soon, they have been revamping since the integration of 900 global and have a lot of balls coming soon.

Synergy has looked really good. I'd say people are missing out if they're overlooking it

Idol Purple was just announced, no release date yet. Approved USBC March 2nd probably, that's not the release date. Why discontinue the Magenta Idol then replace it with the Purple? No info so maybe an updated cover is what im thinking.

Storm just discontinued a bunch of stuff across all lines a week or so ago. Roto looks like it got hit the hardest. The Hustle INK got the axe too. I'm pretty surprised the AU sells better.

New announcements should be just around the corner. The don't leave their lines looking incomplete for very long. The RST X-1 Squad and UFO Alert were just added to the approved ball list yesterday but either one of those would be an odd next release since the UFO, Nuclear Cell, and RST X-1 are all still current.

I think the idol purple is a good idea, update the cover so people can't complain when a new batch of magenta's don't match the same performance of the first batch or whatever.

They also discontinue based on sales...it's probably to spike sales again.
In the bag [MBT, '15 Respect, Teal HB, WH Badger, Boost, Boo-Yah]
*Now Testing* Badger Hybrid
Coming soon.... Volatility, HB Revival, AD Pearl
