Slant Solid is ideal for the heavier oil patterns or if you just need to cover more boards. SLant Solid features the SOAKER additive that removes oil from the surface of the ball quicker than any coverstock on the market assuring you of a clean oil free surface every time. What does this mean? Clean surface means more Friction, more HOOK, more FINISH, and most important more STRIKES! Our testing has shown that the Soaker Coverstock removed oil from the surface 54% quicker than coverstocks without the soaker additive. Slant Solid uses the same Booster Core as the Slant Pearl but is now wrapped in an amped up coverstock. The cover and core combination offers a very aggressive mid lane motion and the Booster Core helps retain its energy longer, so the result is more hook and more power in heavier oil. Testers have stated that the Slant Solid is 8 to 10 boards stronger than the Slant Pearl making it a perfect addition to the radical arsenal. Slant Solid performs best on medium to heavy oil patterns.
