say what?

"core with higher RG value", "increased intermediate differential", "more defined breakpoint", "Cytoplasmic XL pearl reactive coverstock", "increased surface topography", "enhanced friction values", "stronger midlane traction", "extreme entry angle".
These are terms I was made aware of recently when talking to my son. No, he is not a rocket scientist, no am I. We weren't discussing nuclear physics either since neither of us knows the first thing about any kind of physics let alone the nuclear variety.
What we were talking about was his newest toy. He recently bought himself a new bowling ball. All those terms were in the description of the ball provided by the manufacturer. And here I thought a bowling ball was just a heavy chunk of round plastic.
Who knew?
