the reason i ask this is that my pearl balls seem to get beat up easier than solids or hybrids.
my alpha crux seems to be able to hold up to gutter lofting without any nicks, but when my paradox tx3 goes in the gutter just past the ten pin, it gets banged up a little sometimes

Lofting the lane and throwing the ball into the corner of the pit are two completely different impacts.
If you want to preserve your expensive equipment you should get a plastic spare ball and learn how to use it to shoot spares.

Hammer has balls that have caron fiber in them. I own a few of them. I don't have any nicks in any of those. They show a demonstration somewhere showing how strong the coverstock is. I also think it has to do with the bowling center you are at. I have never had 1 nick on any ball at my main bowling center but I have had 2 balls get nicks on them. A storm mixx urethane ball even get a large nick on it. I think that is due to falling off the corner where the 7 or 10 pin is at a bad spot. I am not sure if the carbon fiber helps but that is your probably your strongest coverstock. They also offer a longer warranty.
