Core Type
Basic shape type of the core (Symmetric, Asymmetrical, Pancake)
Asymmetrical
RG
Radius of Gyration: measurement related to weight distribution of the core. This affects how quickly a ball will get in to a roll. A ball with a higher RG will roll later. A ball with lower RG will roll sooner.
14 LB. - 2.51
15 LB. - 2.50
16 LB. - 2.51
Differential
Difference between the RG of the core's x-axis and y-axis. Indicates track flare potential and stability. A higher differential means more flare potential and less stabilty. A low differential ball will be more stable and have less flare potential.
14 LB. - .048
15 LB. - .046
16 LB. - .040
Intermediate Differential 
Difference between the RG of the core's x-axis and Z-axis on an asymmetrical core. Indicates the asymmetry of the core. A higher intermediate differential ball will be less stable and will transition more quickly from skid to roll than a ball with lower intermediate differential.

811A Special Edition Product Notes

Manufacturer's Intent

The Manufacturer’s Intent for the all new 811A SE is to be a stronger version of the 607A SE. We started with an all new core the “Legion 2 Turbo”. This core started out as a symmetric core shape and then was modified into an asymmetric core to get the specific RG, Differential and mass bias numbers we were looking for. This perfectly tuned core is the heart and soul of the all new 811A SE. With the Mass Bias being 0.011, it is set up to give the most angular backend reaction for the widest style of bowlers.

Cover

As for the all new “SE8 GEN1” coverstock, this is truly a remarkable breakthrough in coverstock design. We have developed an all new performance pearl additive “Crystalline Mica”. This additive is 15% more responsive of the dry than what was used in the 607A SE. You can clearly see in the SEM’s the difference between the SE6 coverstock and the new SE8. With the new core and coverstock, we were able to create the most balanced High Performance ball for the widest range of bowlers’ styles.
