AMF I believe was thought to be putting the first epoxy ball out.  But it was Columbia 300 with the EPX-T1 about 15 years ago if memory serves.

The ball would hook but they weren't durable and epoxy just flopped. There were a couple of other coverstocks also like Acryllium that ebonite had.

The EPX was Colombia's hoped for revolutionary ball. Unfortunately quality control was impossible. Some hooked, sime didnt, and most cracked. The failure led to the demise of the company.
