Let me share a little insight to the development of the RUBICON. The idea here from the onset was to create a ball with just a bit of intermediate differential in order to emulate a symmetrical ball being drilled with an extra hole. Yes, you read that correctly, since balance holes are extinct as of August 1st, 2020, we felt it was definitely needed that we create a part that can get close to those core numbers after the ball is drilled.
After all balls are drilled, a majority of the time the intermediate split increases, then when you added a balance hole in the past, more often than not you increased the intermediate split even more. Although even with a balance hole added, you rarely got to the average intermediate split found in our typical "strong" asymmetrical core designs.
Like I said, now that you don't have the luxury of a balance hole, you have to pay a lot more attention to the layout you are using in order to get more overall ball reaction.
Have no fear, the RUBICON featuring the Rondure Core is here!
With the slight intermediate split between the axes already built in, the RUBICON now gives you the similar ball reaction to those symmetrical balls with a balance hole in them. Again, not as strong as the bigger and stronger asymmetrical parts. This fits in right in between.
They other key component to the RUBICON is the newly formulated eTrax solid reactive coverstock. This is a pure reactive material with no additives in any way. No particle additives, no chemical additives, just pure solid reactive material that makes this cover easily adjustable for a variety of conditions. Even with texture on it, this cover will not read the lane early, it will provide ease through the heads while still providing grab in the midlane and responsiveness to friction down lane.
So there you have it and there you are folks. That is the rundown of the new RUBICON and why we created it. There was definitely a need for it like I said since balance holes are no longer allowed. We found we can create that extra motion with the core shape to fill those gaps for all those who used balance holes in all of your equipment.
At the end of the day, we are trying to build as many pieces that we can to emulate the motion of those parts that benefited from adding a balance hole.
As always, thanks for your time and thanks for your support...
