I'm exicted because I have always had great luck with sanded pearls and hybrids... sinister, prodigy, critical theory....

I passed on the timeless, I'll be getting this one.

It's WWRD...belmo posted a video lol...some of you are behind.

I think I'm gonna pick this one up. Maybe I'll even try to do a video comparison to some other balls like a Marvel Pearl, Hy-Road, and Hy-Road Nano.

It's looking to me that Belmo and storm will team up to bring a new ball every February. Timeless came out February 14, 2017. Now the drive this February 2018. I liked the Timeless. This ball is ugly so it might just be a swann

R2S is one of the weaker covers they make believe it or not, so anything blended with it is going to likely be weaker than the original full cover. 

Is R2S Nano > NRG Nano?

Ugh, another release with the R2S cover.  I have never had any success with this cover, like many others have.  I would hope they retire it soon.

I've had success with R2S hybrid and solid, never Pearl. I don't know about it with the dual drive core. The Timeless SE with R2X Pearl interested me a lot more than the original

R2S Nano will be a different animal, I can promise that.  Lol it may be a worse animal, but the Nano factor is extremely dominant, I'm not expecting it to feel much like R2S.

I know right???  I didn't like the Timeless but I REALLY want that SE.

R2S Pearl is my baby. I've loved it on everything I've thrown with it. R2S Hybrid I've only used on the Code Red, and I think that's not a fair sample size to determine my thoughts on it yet. R2S Solid takes surfaces changes to heart like no other, and I can get down with that.

Code X
Code Black

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't ERG basically the cover formula from the actual NRG coverstock without the special gripping technology?

Thank you for this, sir.

Also. I'm uh...asking for a friend.

Is Nano = particle?

Lol probably, but everyone is still using particle, they just don't call it that anymore . .
