By taking the highly proven IKON Core and wrapping it with the eTRAX-S19 cover, and then finishing it with a "Sheen finish" (first time it has ever been done on a Roto Grip ball) I instantly saw a different motion and pin carry. Definitely something I haven't seen from Roto Grip in a long while.
The low RG / high Diff on the IKON Core allowed me to play in a "safer" part of the oil pattern and not have to worry about early hook like I have to worry about with the original IDOL.
This ball is very hard hitting in and around the pins, less deflection and it would probably roll through the back part of the lane for another 10 feet if it wasn't for the lane curtain in the back.
Best ball I have used since my accident in 2018 for league and a few tournaments I have bowled in recently. The IDOL Pro is my "go to" ball all the time now.
