Funny that some of their highest priced balls are made up from combinations of the middle of the road cores & cover, but if you get into the territory of the HyRoad(Nano) then you're saving like $75-80 bucks off of the MSRP of the Timeless/Drive & SonIQ balls.

Considering how much better Storm’s middle of the road covers/cores are than their strong counterparts, I’d argue it’s actually the high end asyms that are overpriced.

(Joking... kind of.)

The question is did he list AX16 twice in error or was one of the AX16 suppose to be something else not listed.  If it was just listed twice in error, is the R2X cover above or below AX16?

I thought NRG and Nano were the same.


They are the same. The R2S Nano on the Drive is a weaker variation.

What's interesting is Chad said this chart is only domestic releases. But R2S Deep Pearl and NRG Smooth have only been on overseas balls?? Haven't seen the Reactor XG before either

+1
It's almost like they killed that cover. I could see R2X making a return in the premier line in a year. Not sure on the other lines, but I would like to see it used more often.

Yes! I can't believe it just vanished. It's on some of the most iconic Storm balls (Virtual Gravity; Marvel Pearl) - give me more of it!

Chad updated the chart, I've updated the original post with the new version.

Interesting placement of ERG, to me that always played on the weaker side like a slightly cleaner R2X with more backend

RAD-X and RAD-4 changed, maybe he could update 1 more time on Centripetal C3 in the IQ Tour vs Marvel Pearl

C3 is under the Stinger 2.0 core

I'm sorry, but after spending the last hour debugging a new web site, I'm in tech mode... I have to say it... This is a really great marketing slide, looks totally slick, but it is useless as a technical update. There's no info AT ALL given on the relative placement for each parameter from 1 thru 100... :(... Is there another technical slide anywhere by chance?
