Coverstock Specs
Name:Pure Explosion
Type:Reactive Solid
Box Finish:nEat
Color:Purple / Berry
Core Specs
Int. Diff:0.000

The Grind is the newest solid reactive release from Lane #1. This ball takes the Pure Explosion coverstock that has shown up in a few different forms over the years and combines it with the low RG/high differential Center Cut Patented Diamond core.

The ball comes at the nEat finish, which gives the Grind plenty of bite for our heavy oil test pattern. Because of his higher rev rate, Cranker saw a bigger change of direction at the breakpoint. This added move at the back end is why he gave it a slightly higher rating than the other two testers.
