High and Low RG ?????

What is the base difference or what do they mean? I have noticed that some companies just show the low RG but not the high and others show both.

I know that low RGs will read the lanes faster (so to say) and hook alittle sooner and high RG balls will go a little longer before they hook.

But why do companies show the high range and min range and some don't?

Does the difference in them really make the reaction that different?

Re: High and Low RG ?????

Min RG + RG Diff = High RG

You can always figure it out. Given a drilling and a surface prep, higher RG balls tend to go longer and be more appropriate for drier conditions.

Re: High and Low RG ?????

The RG differential (High RG - Low RG) is an indicator of flare potential of the undrilled ball. The numbers change when you punch holes in the ball, but it gives something to go by.
