The Adrenaline was one of my favorite symmetric cores that I have thrown by Ebonite. When I heard from R & D that this core was going to be reintroduced, I was very excited. The SALUTE has lived up to its predecessor (Adrenaline) and then some. Out of the box it is very angular at your breakpoint. The adrenaline core eliminates the over-under found in some company’s symmetric cores. The SALUTE still slows down in the midlane but maintains its strong response at the breakpoint. Ebonite’s R & D team matched the core to the new hybrid cover perfectly. I also modified the cover from the factory polish to a 3000 abralon pad surface for heavier oil environments and it still had that same look at the breakpoint but picked up the midlane sooner. This ball is versatile, continuous at the breakpoint and it performs on a multitude of environments. Great job Ebonite!
