Maximize Pin Action.

Read More

In designing the Bandit, our goal was to create a completely new weight block shape which maximizes pin action, accomplished through increased energy transfer (testing showed an increase of 12% when compared with a traditional core design), and works for both rev dominant and speed dominant players alike. The new Caliber™ weight block does just that!

In addition, we created a new coverstock blend called Inception™ which proved itself right from the outset, hence the name. The surface topography showed Ra values up nearly 10% from previous blends. 

Put it all together and you have a flawlessly-designed weapon that is a MUST for any arsenal!
