Roto_Schlem here to give you the low down on the new Winner Solid...
Given the instant popularity of the original Winner, (which was pearl), it was only logical to create a solid version to counterbalnce the attack.
Using the now popular Altered Hotshot Core, we formulated a new solid material by the name of VTC-S18. This new solid coverstock creates good traction without gripping too early and causing the ball to slow down too much.
Not to mention the finer detail of this ball is the finish of the coverstock out of box. After many tests and many conversations, we decided that the ball needed to be finished to a 3000 grit level, but with different steps before that final sanding. By doing this we created a solid cover that help get the ball through the front of the lane, yet allows enough traction downlane to still change directions.
If you were to drill a Winner Solid and the original Winner the exact same way, you will see the new Winner Solid rolling about 8-10 feet sooner which creates a smoother reaction down lane for sure. But not so early that the ball won't change directions.
This ball will be ideal for when the big balls start to read too early or start hitting flat. This solid cover will give you traction but still have energy down lane.
