New Tropical Surge

Looks like they updated the core for the first time ever in the Tropical, replacing the Camber core with a slightly higher differential core called the Surge.

Well, they've had several Tropicals - Tropical, Tropical Breeze, Tropical Heat, etc. To be honest I couldn't really keep them straight in my head.

Went from Turbine to Camber, but the numbers were pretty much the same I think. And, there wasn’t a difference between the Tropical Storm, the Tropical  Breeze and the Tropical—just name changes.

Turbine to Cambwr was from 2.55 to 2.57 and .038 to .009. Quite a difference. And the Tropical Storm from 2006 to about 2009 was much different from the Breeze and todays Tropical Storm. It used a 3 piece core instead of the Camber core. Only mentioning because the one from 2006 ish is one of my favorite balls ever vs the Breezes being near the weakest reactive on the market.

Idk. I'm hoping it was a moron and just finally heard that it's a San Antonio product and maybe got confused.. BUT if Doom is spiking sales so much I could see SA outsourcing the manufacturing 😂😂😂

The Tropical Heat line was a different animal compare to the Tropical Breeze,  which became the Tropical! The Heat line rolled amazing and of course stronger. It was replaced by the Ride series and then Match and Match Up! It's nice to see a slightly stronger entry level ball replace the Tropical, or will it? Maybe some insiders can shed more light!

They will be Brunswick poured. Scary to think about the logistics of this one.

Storm puts out so much stuff, no way they would be able to fill all of those pours in Utah.

It doesn't really matter who pours it... the base chemicals and cores are still Storms. It's not like you're gonna start seeing those 1 & Done Brunswick covers on Storm cores.

My point is, Storm is giving Brunswick the ingredients to one of their base covers, Reactor. The R2S, R2X, R3S and whatever other Reactor covers are made up of these base materials. Its almost like giving Plankton the ingredients to the Crabby Patty.

That is what patents are for.  Once a ball is released wont stay a trade secret for long. Storm being around and Nu-Line being long gone speak to that.  Reactor isnít exactly cutting edge either but get the joke.
