This new Elite release features a pearl version of their new E85M High Reactive cover. The coverstock stores a large amount of energy that provides a strong move at the breakpoint.

We found it matched up best with our medium pattern. The length and back end reaction were a perfect match on this condition. All three testers were able to play in their comfort zones to start and make small moves deeper into the pattern as it broke down. Even when we played really deep, we never saw any lack of carry.

Our reaction was above average for a shiny pearl on our heavy pattern. Stronger layouts would make our reactions even better. Since we can’t change the layout, we did change the surface. We hit Stroker’s Platinum with a 2000 Abralon
