The Grind/R is the pearl follow up to the last Lane #1 release and features a pearl version of the Pure Explosion coverstock.

This polished pearl cover provides easier length on medium patterns than the Grind. That being said, it makes perfect sense that we would have our best reaction on our medium test pattern. All three testers were able to keep the Grind/R at the polished box finish for the entire testing session on this pattern. All were able to play in their comfort zones and just make small parallel moves left as the pattern went through its transitions.
