The new Incross coverstock contains a navy blue solid reactive material and a forest green reactive pearl that allows the New Breed Crossover to get down the lane easily, while still having enough traction to handle medium to heavy house patterns and carry down well. Designed to replace the recently discontinued New Breed Solid, this ball will have a similar ball motion, and cover the same type of lane conditions. Factory finished to 2000 Abralon, the Incross cover is very durable and takes to surface adjustments extremely easily.
The New Breed line is equipped with a slightly asymmetrical, dense center core design with a cap and a lighter wrap. This allows for a quick revving ball that begins to roll in the later part of the midlane while the pronounced cap provides more flip and a sharper break than the Gladiators. The “wedge” on the side of the core creates a mild mass bias for fine tuning the balls reaction.
The New Breeds utilize the Serpentine core (an elongated core with a pronounced cap and a side wedge) in combination with several different coverstocks. This line of balls will get through the front clean but offer a stronger and sharper break than the Gladiator line. Designed to handle virtually all house conditions. The New Breed Crossover will cut through the oil, while the pearl provides more length with a sharper break, and the particle pearl will blend out wet/dry lane conditions. With similar but improved characteristics – anyone who likes the Gryphon line should love the New Breeds.
I was a bit unsure about this ball since i really didnt like the NB Solid. But i love my Pearl, So i thought i would give it a try.
After much thought and talking to Jason @ VBP , I decided to drill it simular to my NB Pearl. I left the cover alone , first night with it all i could say is WOW. the reaction was alot better then my NB Solid.
I had no issues getting the ball to clear the heads, it reads the mids great and revs up very easy. It was not a snappy/jumpy off the dry like the NB Pearl but it was very strong and didnt stop until it was threw the pin deck.
The Crossover will compliment the Pearl like no other. I understand why it will replace the solid in the NB line.
Likes - easy to get threw the heads, reads mids great , strong but not snappy
