The Cherry Vibe is the pearlized partner of the solid-covered Blue Vibe. As with the Blue, the Cherry uses Hammer’s new carbon fiber outer core system, which is one of the only differences between these remakes and the originals. The Cherry shares the same original Vibe core design with the Blue that is unchanged from the original Cherry Vibe. The pearlized CT Reactive cover features the same factory finish as the Blue, coming out of the box at 500/2000 Abralon with a coat of Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish.
