Epic Dream
« on: September 29, 2006, 03:07:02 AM »
I see the ball on their site but don't know much about it.  Can you get one in the states?  Is it USBC qualified?  It's basically an epic from what i've read but with a pearl coverstock.  Plus it looks cool! =)  Just wondering.

Pretty much the Epic Saga is this ball here in the States.  You could possibly get the same look of this ball with a polished Epic.  I would love to get one if I could so I can have the whole line, but I doubt it.

It's a similar coverstock but the cores are different.  If I am interpreting this correctly the epic saga is the battle's core with the dream's coverstock, and the dream is the saga coverstock with the epic core.  It's a combination that I think makes the dream a little better than the saga.

Inside - your interpretation of the core is correct, but your a little bit off on the coverstocks.  

The Saga is a combination solid and pearlized reactive cover, ala the Apocalypse and most recently the Silver Streak SE.  The Epic Dream is a Pearl Particle coverstock much like the Oracle Vision had on it.  

So the coverstocks are a bit different as well.

This ball should react like a Oracle Vision on steroids with the Epic core, I would think that the back end will be far more angular and later with the increased spin rate

So I've established that the bill should roll pretty amazingly, but now the question is can you get one in the states? I'm game for buying it, but can't find it anywhere, not even on ebay!
