I was very excited for this release, as I was intially expecting a reaction in the back part of the lane like I've seen with the reign. However, I couldn't have been more wrong...

The R2X Pearl coverstock really blended out the overall motion of the fire road and gave me a very smooth, very predictable motion that I've never seen before out of a high rg symmetrical pearl. On a medium-heavy 42' house shot I had a relatively tight line for me (22-12-8. As the pattern broke down and moved 10 boards left, the ball reacted harder off the friction but didn't get too angular to the point of leaving 9 pins or it jumping through the face.

Compared to the Crossroad, I was 3 and 2 right. When the Crossroad just can't push anymore downlane, the Fire Road can do so with the strength to recover in the back. Compared to the Marvel Pearl, I stood at the same spot on the lane and made the visual adjustment right as the Marvel Pearl is much earlier midlane than both the Crossroad and the Fire Road.

The R2X/Fe3 combo is full of potential and should be able to find its way into anyone's bag.
