This is very interesting, I have two and use them frequently, but I don't have any spots on them. I wonder if the oil is starting to reaching the outer core and leaching color up though the cover. Hhmmm. I also wonder if there is a common link to the spots, so I want everyone who has spots on the rx1 to list everything the ball comes in contact with. I'm not saying its anyones falt but perhaps its having a bad reaction to something.

Cleaners used
polishes used
sand paper or other surfaces used
lane surfaces bowled on
ball returns used
pin setters used
bowling bags used
where do you store the rx1
exposed for more then 10 min to cold or heat
also list the serial numbers of the balls (maybe a bad batch of resin)
find out what distributer it came from if possable
grips used, finger and thumb
what kind of glue used
how many games have you used the ball for
your location
also list the bowlers specs, rev rate ball speed, so on

Even if it donsn't make sence list it, perpahs we can figure this out and keep it from happening again.

Thanks,

Mike

Not sure on this one. Neither of mine have any discoloration.

Justin, neither have any of mine. Perhaps it's a bad batch of resin or outer core that is leaching into the cover. It's hard to speculate.
