The Truth Tour joins the Truth Pearl and the Absolute Truth in the current Prime 800 Series for 900 Global. It uses the S78R Solid coverstock, which is a stronger solid formulation than what was used on the recently-discontinued original Truth. The Truth Tour also features a new core design. The Adaptor/C LD core is a modified version of what was used in the previous Truth balls, providing a higher RG and lower differential. The box finish is a very dull 3000 grit, achieved by using the ICE “E” pad. Even with the modified core design, the rough surface finish will make this ball match up best for most bowlers on heavier oil conditions.

With his speed, any miss farther right would skid too far down the lane. Cranker’s ball was landing near 30, crossing
