It is safe to say this ball was a long time coming. Given the success of the original IDOL™ and IDOL™ Pearl over the past couple years we felt now was as good a time as any to formulate a hybrid version of those two balls. And that is how the IDOL™ Synergy was born.
It took months of testing to dial in the new eTrax™ Hybrid Coverstock to where we wanted it. We adjusted ratios and formulas until we found our "happy place" in terms of length in the front of the lane as well as responsiveness to friction down lane. Some formulas we tested were too early and smooth, while other formulas were too lengthy with limited recovery. This newest formulation far and away outshined all the others and provided the desired reaction.
Because of this versatile coverstock, if you need to add some surface to help the ball grab a bit sooner, go right ahead. This cover is super pliable and takes surface adjustments extremely well.
So if you are in the market for a versatile ball on those medium type conditions, this ball definitely deserves a spot in your bag.
