I did read up about it on a UK pro shop site http://petesproshop.co.uk/acatalog/Storm.html.  It will be the 1500 polished NRG pearl cover as you mentioned.  However, it will also have ETM (Enhanced Traction Mica) in the cover just as the Prodigy does now.  Colors are slightly different (pearl is orange/navy/charcoal compared to orange/cobalt /navy on the solid.)  Either way, it looks like it will be an interesting ball to say the least.

Interesting to read that HI-SP has an office in North America, and that area code matches up to Vancouver BC.

I know this question is going to be asked and panned, but I'm curious because I'm very interested in this release. How has the mica held up in people's Prodigys in terms of durability and ability to resurface to close to the OOB surface? I have read a lot on here and other places about the downfalls of putting particles in the coverstock, so before I make a $200 investment, I would like to know if my ball can put up with high games and normal maintenance on my spinner.

Great question about the mica.  My prodigy when from a hit monster to a very ordinary ball in about 30 games.  i tried everything with the cover but never got a look like the out of box performance.

Best thing to do is use a spinner when  you get a ball brand new and bring the surface down to 1000.  Go roll it and do surface adjustments off of what you see.  Then after a number of games when you want to put it back you can put it back to the same surface that you decided to go with from the spinner.  Box reaction is impossible to replicate but if you never know what it is you wont miss it either.

Great advise! I've been doing this for the last couple of years.

The more I practice,the luckier I get.

My Prodigy was unusable with the box finish because it hooked at my feet even with a lengthy low-flaring layout (pin is under the middle finger, around 5.5" from my PAP). I hit it with 1000 abralon then applied a light coat of polish by hand, and now the ball is amazingly smooth off the spot. Perfect for shorter patterns and fresh backends. I haven't seen any loss in reaction since drilling it up.

 Billy hit it on the head.  I rarely throw anything oob because of that.  After trying many surfaces, I get the best roll on my prodigy at 2000 polished.

I stone 8s and 9s like its cool...

Hello,

 

We would like to clarify some of the messages we have been reading about the E.T.M. Mica coverstock on the Virtual Gravity Nano Pearl. This is NOT true. Based off of the tech sheet for the Nano Pearl, there is a mention of Mica added to the coverstock for increased length or skid through the heads.


 


This is not E.T.M. Mica, it is simply another name for the pearl we put in all of our pearl coverstocks. Mica comes in many different sizes, and E.T.M. is another name for the larger mica size that had increased traction performance due to the size. The Mica in the Nano Pearl is the same as in all of the other pearl balls in our line, which is a finer size. Hopefully this clarifies any confusion that the Virtual Gravity Nano Pearl does NOT have the Prodigy coverstock. It is indeed a pearlized NRG coverstock.

Thank you,

Do you really believe that it is going to do something, anything, that many other balls do not do????????


Those that can do. Those that can't complain. Pimpin ain't easy, but it's mandatory.

Most things we like, we don't need. Most things we need, we don't like. Don't confuse your likes with your needs.
