The Storm Bolt doesn’t just identify a Storm bowling ball. It represents over three decades of tradition, a commitment to quality, and a promise to always roll better than ever before. The covers are robust. The cores are exact. Because when the scores add up, the thrill of sending all ten back tells you that it’s worth it.
Fragrance: Fruit Trifle
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.
Inverted Fe2 technology boasts a higher RG and differential like most other balls in the Thunder Line, but with one very important benefit: it lacks the core material that most other balls have. This enables the ball to have a much thicker shell which raises the coefficient of restitution. A higher energy transfer to the pins with less deflection upon impact is what can be expected with this design.
