I am gathering my footage tonight, but question is which video would you like to see completed first? Because videos take me a little while to make I want to make sure you guys get the higher demand video first and the one that is less desired second.

More intrigued by the Hy-Road pearl, only because I don't understand it. How is it a HYroad if it isn't a hybrid, isn't the pearl version of the hyroad just a Victory road or Fire raod? I see the cores are slightly different, but is it different enough if you already have one of the others?

The Hyroad was built and made by the T-road solid and pearl, combining the two.

If I was to say what ball the Hyroad Pearl is going to be closest to mimicking I would guess it would be the T-road Pearl and not the Victory Road or the Fireroad.

The Fireroad uses the R2X Pearl cover while the Hyroad Pearl is using the R2S Pearl so there is some difference there. The Hyroad Pearl is going to have less aggression on the lane as compared to the Fireroad.

Comparing it to the Victory Road the biggest difference is going to be the lighter core the Hyroad Pearl is going to use. Because of the lighter core it actually means that the cover goes all the way to the core so there is no filler like the Victory Road has. This has been said to create more power at the pins, allowing the ball to drive stronger and throw more messengers around. This is something that "Lane Masters" equipment has been using as a branding/advertising method for years.

I'm with sk8, I'd call it a "T-road pearl re-release". Thing is, what we're learning from Storm is that even what appears to be a re-release really isn't. Take the 2Fast/Fringe/Freak'n Frantic- all NOS cores with R2S covers but I think with different pearl loads and different additives they all perform somewhat differently. So much so that you need one of each? Well...

PS... still going to do a ROP vid?

Yes I still plan on making one I just got filled up with too much work and not enough time. I will probably put that one out (as well as the Freak'n Frantic) right after I get the Hyroad Pearl and Marvel-S complete.

I got all my footage last night so the real work begins!

Cool, that's pretty much the order of my level of interest... Marvel-S, Hyroad Pearl, Freak'n, and ROP in that order smile Keep up the good work man.

Marvel-S Review is complete, stay tuned for the official video thread to come at about 7:30 am tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.

It is rendering out now so I should have it uploaded and linked up as soon as I wake up.

Now that its 12:30 its time for me to go to bed, had a long day and I have even more work to do tomorrow including some awesome video work (to be announced officially later) with Storm Products and Roto-Grip. Lets just say I am working on a video that includes both Michael Fagan, Pete Weber and John Szczerbinski throwing all the new equipment that has recently been announced!
