Storm Frantic

Storm’s Frantic is a new ball in the Hot line. The NOS core is covered by the R2S hybrid coverstock. The combination between core and cover creates a long and strong ball motion on medium oil volumes. The Frantic’s ball motion and its bright orange and green color combo will definitely make this ball a standout on the lanes.

The Storm Frantic is currently selling for $124.99 and rates a 189.5 on the Perfect Scale®.


Storm Virtual Gravity NANO Pearl

The Latest ball in Storm’s Premier Line is the Virtual Gravity Nano Pearl. The Nano Pearl uses a medium Rg/ high differential core wrapped up by NRG cover stock that uses mica to create a cleaner ball motion through the front of the lane but still allowing more surface contact resulting in a strong back end hook. This ball plays well on medium to higher oil volumes. The Nano Pearl should be another good ball in a very successful line.

The Storm Virtual Gravity NANO Pearl is currently selling for $144.95 and rates a 222.9 on the Perfect Scale®.


Storm Marvel Pearl

Storm’s Marvel Pearl is the latest addition to the Master Line. This ball uses the same core and a pearl version of the popular R2X cover that allows the ball to travel longer down the lane before making a strong move to the pocket. The Marvel Pearl will pick up when the Marvel becomes to much ball for the condition allowing you to generate the length through the front of the lane and produce a stronger move of the end of the pattern.

You've asked for it and it's Back! The Storm Marvel Pearl bowling ball!

Nothing has changed with this version of the Marvel Pearl. The R2S Pearl coverstock is back, still with a 1500-grit polish to create more of a skid-flip reaction that bowlers love. The Centripetal symmetric core is still powering this favorite with its low RG/Medium-High differential make-up.

Throw the Marvel Pearl out to the dry and watch it marvelously recover every time!
Remember that it's the weight block/core that determines the roll pattern due to its migration path, and the Centripetal core's unique shape will power this new Marvel Pearl as well. The beauty of this shape is that it's easy to drill and produces a very predictable motion that really packs a punch.

In conclusion, Storm continues to develop innovative technology combined with fine workmanship. That's why we are “The Bowler's Company.”

The Storm Marvel Pearl is currently selling for $169.99 and rates a 214.3 on the Perfect Scale®


Storm Victory Road Solid

Storm’s new addition to the Thunder Line is the Victory Road Solid. This ball uses a solid version of their ever popular R2s cover and the Inverted FE3 core to create a ball motion that is strong in the mid lane yet will not sacrifice anything in the back end. The Victory Road Solid will provide a more predictable roll than the original Victory Road so that you can handle tighter mid lane oil.

The Storm Victory Road Solid is currently selling for $139.99 and rates a [bowlingball value="9525,ps"/


Storm Virtual Gravity NANO

The newest addition to Storm’s Premier line is the Virtual Gravity Nano. This ball uses a medium low RG with a high differential core. The new cover stock called NRG (Nano Reactive Genesis) was designed to create more texture which generates more surface contact to the lane the end result is more hook. If the Virtual Gravity Nano follows in the footsteps of the original Virtual Gravity it is sure to be a great ball.

The Storm Virtual Gravity was one of the most successful and best selling balls of all time, we just made it better. More aggressive. More strikes. The Storm Virtual Gravity NANO!
Storm is known for producing the best high performance balls on the market. When the Virtual Gravity was released in 2008, it not only turned heads but gave bowlers of all skill levels an unprecedented amount of hook on even the oiliest lanes imaginable. The new Virtual Gravity Nano is intended to create a similar yet stronger ball motion built specifically for heavy oil. This can be accomplished with either a stronger coverstock (texture) or more aggressive weight block (lower radius of gyration or increased differential). As the original Virtual Gravity quickly became Storm's all-time best seller, the new Nano is sure to follow in its footsteps...and yes, those are big shoes to fill! Looking at the original Virtual Gravity, the Shape-Lock HD weight block/core system produced a fast-revving action that especially helped bowlers looking for a stronger change of direction usually privy to only those with big rev rates! The Shape-Lock HD motor will continue to power the Nano as well. A breakthrough in coverstock technology rarely happens due to the complex nature of chemistry and polymer science. But Storm's research and development team is committed to maintaining the "pole position" in bowling innovation, so it's no surprise that we are changing the game yet again with the new NRG cover. With Nanotechnology, NRG will give bowlers increased oil traction due to the micro-dynamic enhancements of the surface. Just looking at the surface of the new NRG material shows you the increased surface texture between the peaks and valleys, as well as the more aggressive edges on the top of the peaks! We're continuing to push the envelope; we just hope you are ready for it.

The Storm Virtual Gravity NANO is currently selling for $159.99 and rates a 224.3 on the Perfect Scale®.


Storm Victory Road

The Victory Road is a versatile piece with a strong motion down lane. The redesigned Fe3 weight block is a touch stronger the the original Fe2 which allows a stronger ball motion. The R2S pearl cover will handle a wide range of lane conditions. If you were a fan of the Hy-road you will enjoy throwing this one down the lane.

We were looking for a versatile piece with a strong motion down lane. As we designed the new Victory Road, we first considered the core and then the coverstock.
The success of the original Hy-Road was due in part to the core shape that created a roll pattern with ample flare that just seemed to always “get the job done.” And while it can be challenging to improve upon perfection, the inverted Fe3 technology in the new Victory Road does just that.
Wrapping the re-engineered Fe3 weight block with the proper shell material is essential to realizing the benefits of both! So we chose the reliable and proven R2S material for its ability to handle a wide variety of lane conditions. With the Victory Road's straight pearl mixture, you'll go deep in the pocket while reaching shallow into your pockets!

The Storm Victory Road is currently selling for $117.99 and rates a 185.5 on the Perfect Scale®


Storm Marvel

The new Marvel uses the proven R2X cover stock, a strong solid reactive blend that covered Virtual Gravity. The chosen 2000-grit Abralon finish allows the ball to control the mid lane without sacrificing back end reaction. The Centripetal core allows for a strong ball motion in variety of layouts. This will be a go to ball when the lanes are a little tight.

In order for the new Marvel to live up to its name, we used the reputable R2Xcoverstock, a strong solid reactive blend made famous on the original Virtual Gravity. With the chosen 2000-grit Abralon finish, R2X manages the midlane like a champ, and if you listen to Norm Duke's interviews you will hear him talk about “transition” and “break point.” These key points are DIRECTLY related to the surface of the ball, the most critical part as it actually touches the lane!
Looking inside the new Marvel, the Centripetal core's unique shape has several advantages for both ball driller and bowler. Pro shops love the fact that this core produces similar motion with a variety of layouts. At the same time, bowlers love the fast-revving, low RG design that creates more total ball motion.

Storm Natural Pearl

The Natural Pearl is a conventional pearl urethane coverstock with less surface friction for challenging patterns. The Turbine core is strong enough to create flare so that the ball will create enough ball motion but will diminish the over/under ball reaction down lane sometimes associated with reactive covers. A great choice for short or light volume patterns.

Sometimes taking it old school is what it takes to win! The Storm Natural Pearl is everything that's good about bowling technologies past blended with the newest innovations.
Bowling ball technology has advanced at a furious pace over the past 20 years. We've seen huge moves forward in the development of new weight block shapes, core designs, coverstock materials, and more. Most often, this technology will help you reap the benefits in your league and tournament competitions.
But not all lane conditions are conducive to Premier Line equipment with all the coverstock technology needed for maximum traction. Some competitive oil patterns are short with very clean backends and some lane surfaces, especially wood, have an extreme amount of wear and built in friction.
The U2S™ pearl urethane coverstock is a modern generation form of the original urethane made popular in the 80s. What once was used to create more hook and friction as it developed out of the polyester era, urethane has the ability to tame over-reacting backends without sacrificing hitting power, or coefficient of restitution.
And if you've ever doubted the hitting power of the Natural, just ask Rhino Page who is the reigning Viper Pattern champion on the PBA tour. Try one today. You'll become a believer.

Storm Reign Supreme

Storm’s newest mid-performance ball is the Reign Supreme. This ball has a mixture of pearl and solid R2S covers which allow for a clean but yet controllable motion. If you loved the Hy-Road then this ball is right up your alley.

It's time to take control of the lanes and Reign Supreme!
Looking at the original Reign and Reign of Fire, you'll find R2S surrounding the uniquely- contoured C.A.M. (Continuous Axis Migration) weight block. This combination of coverstock and core helps fit a multitude of needs. Looking at major national and international tournaments, the Reign series has been a foundation for bowlers across the globe. The new Reign Supreme will feature the same C.A.M. weight block but showcases a finely-blended hybrid shell. Bowlers looking for a clean glide through the heads with a smooth transition in the midlane will cherish the R2S Hybrid shell…just ask anyone who has owned a Hy-Road! You'll be sure to see the benefits as Storm helps you become a dominating force of your league or tournament, or anytime you hit the lanes. In conclusion, Storm continues to develop innovative technology combined with fine workmanship. That's why we are “The Bowler's Company.”

The Storm Reign Supreme is currently selling for $89.99 and rates a 173.8 on the Perfect Scale®.


Storm Anarchy

Storm’s latest high performance ball is the Anarchy. This asymmetrical pearl ball will deliver a very strong down lane ball motion without sacrificing mid-lane performance. This ball should allow bowlers to a strong ball motion even if they do not have a strong release.
Don't take nothin' from nobody... make your own rules with the Storm Anarchy!
With a commitment to innovative core design development, it's no wonder that Storm continues to push the envelope with shapes like the C.A.M. and Centripetal weight blocks. While the Invasion is developed for the heaviest of oil patterns, oil depletes quickly as proven by Kegel and Storm in a cooperative seminar series earlier this year. So, the goal of the new Anarchy is to develop a high-end strong asymmetrical that is clean through the heads and turns over sharp at the break point, even for bowlers without all the revs of the tour guys. With 25 years of experience in coverstock chemistry starting with U-Clean U-Score™, Storm is the industry leader of high performance bowling balls. Premier Line balls like the new Anarchy all feature strong asymmetrical shapes that are engineered from concepts different from the “industry standard.” It's what sets Storm apart from the competition. Looking at the Origin core, we find a strong asymmetrical design that is dynamic and contoured to maximize usability. Wrapping the Origin core with R3X coverstock material, the shell is designed to maximum surface texture which increases overall ball motion. The polished finish of the new Anarchy ensures a glide through the heads and strong backend motion that we all love. In conclusion, Storm continues to develop innovative technology combined with fine workmanship. That's why we are “The Bowler's Company.”

The Storm Anarchy is currently selling for $89.99 and rates a 217.3 on the Perfect Scale®.
