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.

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 isn’t exactly cutting edge either but get the joke.
"Reactor isn't exactly cutting edge..." GET IT? CUTTING EDGE LOL

I'm for it, wish they would stop doing the same colors.

Someone posted on Facebook and said Brunswick was pouring them? Wtf?
They will be Brunswick poured. Scary to think about the logistics of this one.

Eww... also where’s the facts for this?

This include being $30 six weeks after release at Buddies?  Sorry had to take a Ross dress for less shot.
Less is more especially with forum posts.

Just going to say I have a Match Pearl and with only .030 diff and pin up over an inch above my ring it is a beast on a house shot with ONLY Reactor.

Sharper and more dramatic at the breakpoint than my pin next to Punch Out with R2S, I am trying to figure out where to use it!

I have seen these inexpensive Reactor covered balls used at Senior tour events often in a ball down in a second block and the pros just keep striking  if not increasing their strike percentage.

This ball looks like it will be go a little straighter initially and may be great at some very wet dry sites.

Only Reactor!  Heck some days I love my Monsoon or Accutread covers on our super wet drys shots!  Smoother especially with the solid Accutread!  Nice on a Hot Wire.


Regards,

I think this ball will fill the gap nicely between the Thunder line and the Tropicals.  Most of the time the Tropicals are too weak and the Match balls were too much.

If this will be a close replacement for the ride, it may have to happen!
