Paradox Black

Looks like it's just a reskin of the original. Core numbers and coverstock are the same.

It is exactly identical to the original including even the same box finish with the only difference being the color.  At least when Storm remade the Marvel Pearl they admitted it was a remake (still charged top shelf price but they are up front about it).  Storm was right not to make BTM make an ass of themselves like Track did and review it twice like it is some new ball.

But it wont be exactly thr same ball. The original was obviously 2 shades of blue. The color black had a much harder pigment therefore making the shell harder. Harder shell will not grip as much as a softer pigment. Therefore it may change the reaction ever so slightly

Ebonite International: Rehashing since 2008.

Meanwhile, Ron is on the "streets" while they continue to use his stuff. New Eruption, One series, Missions, widows... rehash after rehash. Save money by not paying Ron, but keep using his stuff.  :D

They all do it sadly in some form or another.  Just don't pretend like its new in any way when its only the color that changes and I am fine with it.  Lot of older balls are far superior to some of the newer ones so it is nice to have the option without having to go on ebay.
