Storm Unveils Three Balls for Spring

To enhance the reaction of the original Tropical Heats, Storm wrapped the Turbine core with a more aggressive R2S™ hybrid reactive coverstock and will call it the Lights Out. Its responsive nature grips the dry boards and turns the corner when needed. This stronger shell can be prepped with a sanding pad if needed, but give it a good look first with the factory finish as it provided an optimum motion in testing.

The proven Turbine™ core offers a medium RG and ample flare potential which works for a variety of styles on a countless number of lane conditions. Previously powering the Tropical Heat™ series, this core shape allows you to control your roll pattern and, ultimately, your ball reaction.

The Storm Super Natural is descibed as a “super urethane,” so to speak, to give control and predictability with a touch of aggression on the backend found in Reactor™ and R2S™ coverstocks. This new material, U3S™, was aptly named as it’s Storm’s third generation of urethane and completely unique in formulation.

With a 1500-grit polished finish, the new Super Natural is sure to help those battling drier lanes and match up well to those with slower ball speed! When paired with the dynamic Turbine™ core, Stormcreated an increase of flare potential so that those with a higher rev rate will see up to 6” of migration.
While the original Storm Frantic’s hybrid coverstock created ample backend reaction, the Freak’n Frantic’s pearl mixture amped that characteristic to the next degree. During testing, in fact, the Freak’n Frantic earned its spot in the lineup as the Storm technical team noticed its crisp break point and bold reaction to friction, no matter how far down the lane it began.

With a 1500-grit polished finish, the new Freak’n Frantic can be optimized to any bowler style. Those with a lot of ball speed may need to take some of the polish off the surface while others may prefer the factory finish.

While the coverstock is crucial to reaction, you have to consider the core as well. The Freak’n Frantic’s N.O.S. core provides the power and, when compared with the Turbine™ core, Storm increased its flare potential by more than 15% with its higher volume. The new Storm Balls will be available May 14, 2013.
