The Solar Flare is a new line for AMF. It gave us more hook than the Mamba Hybrid and just less than the Green Mamba. In the current line up, this will be the step down from the Incinerate.

The pearl coverstock made this ball best on our medium test pattern. The “T” box finish gave us the right amount of traction without giving up anything at the breakpoint. Tweener was just inside the second arrow while Stroker was just outside of it. Cranker had to be a lot farther left than both of these testers to catch enough oil
