Eraser Boost PBT
« on: June 01, 2019, 11:25:52 PM »
I've recently decided to put this ball into my temporary arsenal as there is more friction back home compared to my alma matter location. I have a full roller layout on this one (close to being one, but not quite). I wasn't a huge fan of the full roller layout before, but I see the lane differently from that time period and I think I could use this on something else. With that being said, I'm wondering what the closes core shape/motion is to the Eraser Boost PBT. From my understanding, the Hy-Road series fits whatI'm thinking, but eanted to check with the older Storm fans first.

Manufacturers intent back in the day was a light load medium flare, med-high RG particle ball for the heavier side of medium conditions. A Phase 2 would probably fit the bill. If you're talking how strong a Boost would be on today's conditions, something like a Hustle HYB might work.

Hyroad Nano, polished.

Are you saying the Hyroad Nano has particle technology or just the same shape?  The Boost was one of my favorites.

Particle in coverstock material was used to create traction, and quickly slow the ball down. Nano technology does the same thing by creating large peaks and valleys in the coverstock, that helps it create traction, and slow down faster than traditional reactive material. When you polished particle, and Nano too, it doesn't usually go sideways downlane, like traditional reactive materials. In general, you can just decrease the overall board coverage, unlike with often straight resin, polishing the ball, creates more "board coverage".

No, Nano tech is not particle, as stated earlier.

Particle balls actually had flecks, or pieces of different materials ( pieces of Mica; and if memory serves me correctly, the La Nina particles were made or rubber) added to the cover to make "spikes" in the cover to create traction.

 Nano tech has no such additional material added. The peaks and valleys come from chemical reaction in the curing process. Two very different things.

Sorry, I'm referring to the Eraser Boost PBT. I don't have any knowledge of the cover on that ball.

Yes, the Boost was a factory polished, solid, particle ball.
