ER vs Shock
« on: July 15, 2003, 10:37:56 PM »
Could anyone tell me what is the difference between the Trauma ER and the Shock Trauma?  I was unable to get the info from the Storm website.  (May be Storm should add all the retired balls info in the site like Columbia300's website)  It seems like both of these balls have the same core and both are reactive oil ball.  Would there be any diff on the balls' reaction?  Thanks in advance.

The surface, RG and ifferential are all soooooo close, how different can they be?? really.

If one had an X-factor core and one had a Too Hot core, then I could see wondering, but as it stands, consider them for all PRACTICAL purposes identical.

you can also go to this site:
http://www.kbc-trading.se/klot/storm.htm

They have alot of info on most of the storm balls.
Not a lot of pics of cores, but list all the specs and such

You can also highlight the storm in the address and retype another ball company in it's place...

The Shock Trauma did not have the Cadmium whatever in the shell.  Pretty sure that was just the Eraser Blaze and Boost.

For me, both balls when shiny were pretty clean through the front, with the ER having more back end.  Seems like the Shock Trauma had a sharper break point, but wasn't as continuous on the back end, kinda wanted to quit.  Trauma ER had no quit whatsoever.  ER hit better for me.

Thanks for all the reply.

Brandt, how can I tell whether the MB is marked incorrect?  My new "Shock" is on the way and would really like to learn this b4 I go to the driller.  Thanks.

Shock Trauma has a locater pin for the mass bias.  No, this ball has not been spun at the factory like the X Factor balls, but should close enough for all practical purposes.  I used that pin for all my Trauma Core balls, and Shock Trauma.
