If you need the perfect combination of mid-lane roll and backend reactivity with head-turn pin carry, the Dark Code should be your very first choice. Easy power and a gorgeous look? Sign us up.
Some bowling balls immediately sink their teeth into the lane in order to provide traction in oil. Others glide through the front part of the lane with ease, saving all their energy for an explosive backend reaction. But, what happens when you have a ball that’s capable of offering both? Well, at Storm, we wanted to find out, and that’s how we came up with the Dark Code - a ball that’s so good, it’s almost evil!
The engineering may be complicated, but the simple truth of the Dark Code is as confidence inspiring as anything else we’ve built to date. Dynamic cores and potent covers build a solid foundation – one enhanced by industry-leading longevity. A superior factory finish signifies its place atop the pecking order. Imposing. Purposeful. This is the kind of ball you look up to.

Traditionally, the term “hybrid” suggests that both solid and pearl components coexist within a coverstock. We saw a better way for hybrids and took it. When we joined R2S™ with NeX™ in the lab, the results exceeded our expectations. In our testing, we discovered that the Dark Code read the midlane slightly sooner than the Code Black™ thanks to its NeX foundation but produced similar backend and entry angle numbers because the chemical porosity of R2S is slightly more compact than NeX. We left nothing to chance with this one. Thus, ReX a.k.a. “Reactor Extreme” was born.
Crankers will discover this type of pearl formulation to be more versatile in average conditions. Tweeners will crave this type of reaction to play to their strengths even on fresh conditions. Strokers gain easy access to power and backend the likes of which are not easily obtained in today’s high-volume environment.
The Infinite PhysiX pushes the limits of performance, tech, and design. ReX adjusts the response time to friction that’s not as quick as R2S™ and not quite as slow as NeX™. What’s realized is a cover that fits a far-reaching diversity of forms, approaches, and styles. The bowler’s feel becomes heightened as they’re more connected to a ball that responds to their release with absolute fidelity. This helps optimize traction and control in a variety of playing conditions.
Radial Accelerating Disk technology dates back several generations with hints of it that can be found in the RAD4 Core. It features an extremely dense modified disc shape that generates substantial torque. So much torque, it reigns supreme at the top of the Premier line with a differential higher than any other weightblock in its class.
