900 Global brings back the Wolverine name with the release of the Wolverine Dark Moss. This ball uses the same S70 Pearl coverstock and Lacerate 2.0 core that was found on the original Wolverine, but it comes in a new color and it features the new 4K – Fast box finish that is now being used on many Storm, Roto Grip, and 900 Global releases. The 4K – Fast finish is achieved by using each sanding grit on the ball all the way up to 4000 grit and not using any polish or compound.
