From the manufacturer

The Solid IDEA™ features our benchmark asymmetrical F.R.E. Response Core™ combined with our E8 Reactive™ cover in a solid version. Utilizing the same benchmark weight block as the IDEA™ but with a stronger, earlier responding E8 Reactive™ coverstock we have created an oil hungry beast. The “E” stands for “Early” and the 8 is on a scale of 1 to 10. The Forward Rolling Ellipses (“F.R.E.”) Response Core™ already offers predictable recovery and response on a wide range of patterns, but when combined with a beast of a cover that requires oil, you’ll be able to shape hard, heavy oil patterns with ease even at the 3000 sanded out of box finish; this leaves you plenty of room for even heavy patterns with just a slight surface tweak via your favorite sanding pad.

Retired. This ball is no longer produced by the manufacturer, but it may still be available at pro shops and online retailers in limited weights.
