New Balls Disclosed From Storm

When you get a whiff of Paradise Punch, look for the new Storm Ride, which arrives in the Hots line April 21st. The new Storm Ride is designed for drier lanes, and Storm incorporates both new and proven technology in this gem.

For the cover, Storm chose the smooth and highly polished Hybrid Reactor™ material which refuses to acknowledge friction in the heads (the first 15 feet of the lane). And the new Cruiser™ core produces a modest amount of flare potential to help control your ball path as well. The Ride is consistent, reliable, and predictable, just what you need when you want a powerful hitting ball but one that doesn’t ‘bounce off the dry!’

The new Storm Tropical Breeze mimics previous entrees in this series. Look for the Camber core wrapped in Carbon/Chrome colored Reactor coverstock with a standard 1500 grit polished finish, with a Cinnamon fragrance, to arrive April 21st.

The new Storm Mix series adds Purple/Yellow, Pink/White and Black/White color options. The Mix series is pearl U1S urethane, 3500-grit Abralon polished, three piece balls available June 9th.

Two New Performance Balls Introduced by 900Global

Along with news that Chris and Linda Barnes will be representing 900 Global comes news of two new balls from the San Antonio, Texas company. The Blue /Silver /Steel Respect Coverstock, 79 Alert™ Hybrid, is finished to 1500 Grit, then Polished. Powering the Respect is the Tetra™ Symmetric Core, like the Prime product line Moxie, which is also a hybrid.

900 Global’s first manufactured ball, the Break™,
really put them on the map. Global’s new Break Down features a Bright Blue S70™ Solid coverstock which has an impressive history (and even a USBC Open Championship All Events Record), and with the modified Break™ Asymmetric core, you’ll finally be able to use it later in tournament blocks. A significantly raised RG and lower differential is designed to provide more length and less flare, all the while keeping the fabled S70™ on hand to provide that perfect friction-to-backend ratio everyone loves. The new Break Down is finished to 4000 grit with the “T” Neat pad.

DV8 Unwraps The Thug Unruly and Diva Divine

Finishing Steps include 500; 2,000 Siaair Micro Pad. The updated cover and slightly smoother cover prep to the Rukus Feud

Finishing Steps 500; 4,000 Siaair Micro Pad.
