The new Ebonite Envision uses the GSV-X Solid coverstock, wrapped around the new Envision asymmetrical core. The cover comes out of the box at a sanded 500/2000 SiaAir finish. The new Envision core shape has an RG of 2.501″, a total differential of 0.053″, and an intermediate differential of 0.010″. This is a higher RG and higher differential design compared to the Polaris core, which helps the Envision provide a bit more length and change of direction downlane.

The Envision gave Tweener an excellent look on the fresh heavy oil test pattern. Its dull box finish easily dug into the midlane, providing a strong hook and plenty of downlane motion. The fresh portion of the test session was easy for Tweener, and he could keep chasing the oil left in transition without having to worry about the ball shooting past the breakpoint. The box finish was very effective at creating hook through the oil without losing energy at the back end. With more hook than the Game Breaker 4 Pearl, he never needed
