This latest high performance release from Lane #1 has a previously used core combined with a new cover. This medium-high RG core combined with its large flare potential gives even the strongest covers the ability to store energy for the back end as was proven by the use of this core in the original Time Bomb. The Power Snap 17 Light Load Particle cover allows this medium-high RG core to read the midlane extremely well without losing its strong motion at the back.

All three testers found the Time Bomb Black Fire to match up best with our medium test pattern. While the pattern was fresh, all three were able to keep their angle through the front part of the lane
