Storm Tropical Breeze has two new colors. If you need a ball that is easy to control with backend on lighter oil patterns get your favorite color and smell.
Camber Core's inverted light bulb core gives it a smooth roll in the front and all the hit you need to carry the corner pins.

What a great ball for dry lanes. The Tropical Breeze cleared the heads very easily had good movement in the mid-lane and had a nice arc on the back-end and had plenty of hitting power. It is a ball for all type of bowlers.

For an inexpensive, low hooking ball this ball is a monster. Don't let the hook potential fool you. Yes, on a medium oil pattern to start, this ball is very average in hook potential. However, once tha pattern breaks down, this ball hooks a ton. I had my ball drilled pin under for a controllable even arc and back end. It does exactly what I hoped it would. The shot I generally use it on is a medium light THS with synthetic lanes. My ball speed is average, yet I do put a lot of hand in it and get a lot of revs dispite my average speed. The ball hits hard and is very predictible. I also use it in another house which has wood lanes and has heavy oil in the middle, yet dry outside the 10 boards. As a result, I have moved 7 boards left to ride the oil into the 7-8 board range at the break. Ball reacts very well off of the friction and continues with its predictible break and roll. I have not seen any over under with this ball or any negative reaction once alley becomes wet dry. I would recommend this ball to anyone at any skill level. This ball will do what ever you need it to do.

I am so glad the pro shop didn't listen to my color choices. The yellow inserts look very sharp. There also was a very helpful video on how to glue them in place. The first two throws with the ball were strikes, I had three games in the 180's then a 235 and a 251. My league average is 170. This ball does what I wanted. I can throw it straight for spares and use it for strikes on dry lanes.

I'm going out on a limb here by saying that this ball it the best ball for the money performance wise dollar for dollar. I have a LUCID, Wrecker, Lights Out, and various other balls from other manufactures like the NEXXUS, NEXXXUS, Encounter, MISSION X, HHR, Brick and the list goes on. I'm telling you now, the Hybrid Tropical Breeze is a totally outstanding ball and believe me it's not weak. I get plenty of reaction out of this ball and it's always predictable.

I bowled in league tonight and one of my team mates, who's hand and fingers happens to be the same size as mine, had his best game when he switched to my tropical breeze. We were both using it and now he is buying one tomorrow. The Tropical Breeze reacts great to friction but it doesn't over react or under react. I would say that this ball give me the most room for error either right or left than any ball I own and that's saying a lot considering the arsenal that I own.

Get one of these "hybrid" Tropical Breeze balls and I can just about promise you that you won't regret it, especially for when the lanes start to break down. This ball will DEFINITELY remain in my bag without doubt at all times. I can see I'm going to have to buy another cause this one is going to get worn out. Storm his a home run with this one. This is most definitely my very favorite ball without exception.

About the Bowler

I got this ball to use on the drier, shorter, or burnt out conditions. In some instances, it was definitely the best choice for the condition I was on. But often, the ball seemed unpredictable. Sometimes, it would produce a very crisp skid-hook reaction with a lot of carry stored up for the back end. Other times, it would just skid through the break point, as if it burned up or barely had any hook left in it. I'm not sure if I'd recommend this ball to mid-speed tweeners with lots of side roll because of the unpredictability. I'm going to look into the Storm Super Natural to solve this issue.

About the Bowler

Trying to get a ball a little more aggressive than the Tropical Breeze Pearl, I decided to go with this ball. Drilled pin up stacked over the ring finger, this ball gave a greater reaction than the pearl version, however this ball is strictly for patterns for medium to light oil, or as
the lanes break down throughout the day. With that being said, this ball fit perfectly when I needed it at the end of the day, and if that is what a bowler needs, then I would highly recommend it.

About the Bowler

In looking for a ball to fit in between my Crossroad and my Tropical Breeze, I decided to go with the Heat Hybrid. This ball was drilled Pin up stacked over the ring finger. This layout with this ball gave great length with tremendous angularity in the backend. At times it became uncontrollable, but overall the strength in which this ball hit in the backend made it a staple in my bag.

I bought this ball for dryer lane conditions to balance out my arsenal. I got it drilled pin up so go longer and snap at the back end and boy does this ball snap. On our typical house shot if I keep this ball outside 7 board where it's dryer the ball glides down the lane nicely, saving up all its power for when it grabs the lane and rips toward the pocket. This thing hits like a monster when I keep it outside or on dry conditions.

That said, this ball does not recover well on heavy oil as it's not meant for it. If I miss inside too much it will slide right past the pocket or hit light.

This makes it a great third game ball for me when the lanes start to break down. My third game average has improved significantly since getting this ball.

About the Bowler

I believe this bowling ball is going to increase my average....it does respond differently than my old ball, Storm Hot Rod. I do have to release it a little differently, and if it hooks left hard, it is because of my delivery. One issue is, if I release too far outside the first arrow, it will spin off into the gutter.....grrrr.
I do love this ball! The color is striking...no pun intended, and love the smell; however, the wonderful smell is distracting when setting up to deliver the ball, I want to smell it a little longer. Lol.

I know I say I love all my bowling balls, but honestly, this may be my favorite. Once I breakdown my line, I pull this ball out and that's that. I have it drilled for length as I really hurt on the drier lanes. This ball still has hook in it though if you aren't careful. I get a very predictable hook with the Tropical Breeze, but it still hits and it can hit mighty hard. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who needs a lighter oil ball or for beginners who don't want a crazy hook and want something easy to get used to.

The Tropical Breeze usually spends a lot of time in my bag and doesn’t get a lot of use however when I'm bowling a really long tournament and the lanes are completely burnt up the Tropical Breeze is my go to ball. It may be a weak ball but it really is strong when it hits the pocket and drives through the pins.

The Tropical Breeze bowling ball delivers on all levels. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it also is a great ball for low-medium oil conditions. When used properly, this ball creates great pin action. The ball is one of my favorites because of the carry it creates. Overall, the Tropical Breeze is a great bowling ball.

Storm Tropical Breeze Black Cherry Ball Review
by Storm Staffer Casey Murphy

Right Handed
Rev Rate: 375-400 Rpm
Ball Speed: 16 mph
PAP: 4 5/8 straight across

Location: Sunshine Lanes
Lane Pattern: Typical House Shot
Layout: 35, 5 ½, 40 with a P1 weight hole

When I needed something to play straighter through the heads on low volume house patterns and shorter sport patterns I naturally went to Storm’s Tropical line. The Tropical Breeze Black Cherry is the perfect ball for these conditions. It’s got plenty of length through the heads and the hybrid cover generates plenty of controlled backend.

I tested this ball on the Beijing pattern as well as a house pattern. On the Beijing pattern I was able to get my feet far enough to the right to really take advantage of the characteristics of that pattern. On the house pattern I was able to play up the friction in the track and create a lot of hold and recovery.

The Tropical Breeze Black Cherry is a must have for those looking for a clean reaction on low volume or short patterns.

I was looking for a combination ball. I thought this ball might do the trick.....which is did. I wanted a spare ball for fresh patterns and also a ball that would work for those times when the oil in non-existant. With my ball speed, a plastic ball just didn't give me much angle on the pocket in dry conditions.
Enter the Black Cherry Hybrid Breeze. I had it drilled pin up, between the fingers; CG in the palm of my hand. I haven't been able to pick up 10 pins this easily in 20 years on fresh patterns. Throwing across the lane, the ball is really clean until the dry, then it has about 5 boards of break which is perfect for my 10 pin shot. On fresh oil, I can get it to the pocket from about the 15 board. On dry lanes is where it really helps my game. It is so close to my HyRoad Pearl (on fresh) that I play the exact same lines - Breeze (dry) Hyroad Pearl (fresh). All-in-all, a really nice addition to my arsenal. I am thinking of buying another and having it drilled to hook a lot more.

Surprised to say the least I have moderate speed 16 mph and I have bowled less than 50 games in 30 years. This ball moves from the dry to the wet. I have basically played it just inside the track and used it when the lanes are starting to dry up. I drilled it pin up and had it drilled with a typical Storm pattern 4x4x2 and it gave me decent length. I couldn't take it to the 4th arrow and play deep. I don't think it was designed to play inside. I have kept it 15 to 7 and when the lanes are transitioning it responds fairly well. I may drill one more of these and go pin down to see if it will give me more depth.

I purchased and drilled this ball to handle conditions when my other equipment rolls to early and burns up. This ball has exceeded my expectations for the price point. It easily moves through the dry heads and when it makes it's move I'm very pleased with the carry I get. The only thing to watch out for is puddles down lane. This ball will skid through if there's not a friction point.

I love the way this ball carries the pins. I had it drilled for drier lanes with length with a strong back end. Straight from the pro shop to the lanes I threw 17 strikes in two games with a 256 and a 246. Even a light hit carried well. Definitely a good investment for me!

This ball is unreal. I recently practiced on a pair of lanes that had tons of plastic thrown on it and just completely messed up. This ball saw nothing until the backend. I have it laid out with a 60 x 3(3/4) x 75 layout and took the surface to 2000 before even throwing it. This puts the pin right under my ring finger...maybe a little to the right. The ball flares, not a ton, but man does it move on the back. I can't believe how hard this ball hits but how smooth it is off the backend. The ball didn't jump on me once and once I got it shined up a little I really enjoyed it more. You can't beat it for the price either. The ball is really good.

Hey guys, thanks for reading.
Wanted to share with you the my review of the Storm Breeze Black Cherry Hybrid. We decided while we had the chance to review this ball on the Shark Pattern. Lot of skeptics out there told us we would have to review this ball on a regular house pattern to show it off but to be honest that is far from the case. Just because this is a lower price point ball doesn't mean lower performance and I have actually started bringing this ball to my league nights where a longer oil pattern is being used. We used a 65 x 4 3/4 x 60 drill pattern which is one of my favorites. It allows the ball to glide easily through the front of the lane and rev up enough to read the end of the pattern. This ball is also a great go to ball during league transition. I usually try to stay just inside of the rest of my league competitors but when the pattern starts to get torn up this ball allows me to play either right with them or to the right of them using ball speed to play straighter or with more hook. The Breeze Hybrid is a great compliment for any high rev players and a great starter piece. Scuff it and it hooks just a bit more to handle heavier oil patterns or more speed dominant bowlers. Nice addition to my arsenal. Not too much skid and not too much hook - this one is just right.

About the Bowler

The Storm Tropical Breeze is equipped with a Camber Core wrapped in the Reactor Pearl Reactive coverstock and polished to a 1500-grit finish. I purchased this ball because I wanted something in my arsenal for dry lane conditions and this works very well on those conditions. The pearl coverstock carries the ball down lane and ensures this ball will come back into the pocket strong enough to carry.
I do not advise using this ball on fresh conditions or cases in which the oil has been pushed down, however. The mid-lane read on this ball can be rather touchy, and missing outside can mean the ball will hit light – if it even makes it back to the pocket. If it does make its way back into the pocket, expect to leave a few 5-7s or even 5-7-10s (for a righty).
That said, this ball can be good for developing bowlers, especially teaching them how to play accurately straight up the lane. Because the differential of the Breeze is so low (0.013 or less), this ball is the perfect stepping stone between a spare ball and a mid-level performance ball. It will give the bowler (and their coach) a great idea of what their ball is doing while at the same time giving them more hook – and more carry – hopefully encouraging them to continue the sport.

I was looking for a ball that goes long and with a smooth steady backend. I had this ball drilled to go long with an angular kind of backend so that it would have a bit of hook. The first time I threw this ball, the backend was phenomenal. It went long but surely surprised me with the backend. The first game I shot with it was a 246. I really love this ball! It is my new go to ball.

Hello all and thanks for reading. Here is the youtube link for the following ball, the Breeze Solid Black Teal:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNDyHJhPISk

Another great hit from Storm. Solid version of the Breeze is now a staple in my bag. Playing straighter or looking for a more consistent shot on some touchy conditions then this is the ball for you. The solid coverstock helps give this ball an edge while still being able to maintain a consistent roll to and through the pins. If you saw the video and read the review for the Pearl Kona Breeze then you can see exactly what I am talking about. I was able to play directly in the track area of the lane with the Breeze Black Teal without having to give up ball speed or amp up my rev rate at all. It goes without question that I enjoy throwing stronger bowling balls but do not make any mistake about this ball - it is anything but weak. For this pricepoint the hook potential and hitting power make this ball standout. Don't be afraid to take the surface down a little bit if you are looking to handle a slightly heavier volume.

Comparing to the Heat Black Silver with the Hybrid cover you can see you will be further toward the outside part of the lane but you can easily see that the hook potential and hitting power are there to stay.

Great choice for shorter patterns with medium to low volumes of oil and great transition ball when things start to get a little sticky so to speak. Keep up the Great work Storm. This ball is a hidden gem.

If you're looking for a ball for dry lanes, then the search ends here. I recently had a Storm Chrome drilled out similar to my Match Pearl (Pin above ring and CG at 5 O'clock) for when the lanes completely burned up and it works perfect. When the Match is over reacting I can take the Storm move back right and it still holds the lanes but finishes strong to keep the carry. Its a very mild and controllable which is great for my high rev rate, especially when the lanes are all dried up. Great addition to any arsenal.

I did nothing special with hole placement ball has a very consistent path and has made learning a hook (also easier then i thought) very easy! The cherry fragrance was a surprise! Ive played many games with this ball and plan on many more! If u want a beginner ball without going plastic this is perfect! And i believe this is a very good ball for non beginners also from people who have used it and like it..

Storm Breeze does what I needed. As the lanes break down, I go to the Breeze and I get great reaction and it hits like a tank.
Thank You.

This ball replaces my beloved Hammer Razyr. Drilled with layout #4. Shot 679 with the ball my first time out on a slightly worn league shot. I can throw this ball right up the 8-9 board and it'll walk right into the pocket with good hitting power without overreacting on the back end and leaving the dreaded 4-9. It'll come back if I miss and throw it out too far right, or if I pull it it'll glide right into the pocket, so it's perfect for a typical league shot. No weak 10 pins with this ball! But I have left the 2-4-5 if I hit the pocket too light. Haven't tried it on a freshly oiled league shot yet.

About the Bowler

I bought this ball to use when the lanes are really eaten up towards the end of college tournaments where I can move out and create a spot for myself. I also like it on really short patterns where I can play up the gutter. On extremely long patterns, to get it to hook I really have to come around the side of the ball. A great ball on certain patterns.

About the Bowler

This ball is exactly what its billed as... a ball for the burned out and shorter lane patterns. It's extremely mellow off the spot for me, and is controllable even on the shortest of lane patterns (35 ft) or on the most burned out of lanes (games 5-6 of a college tournament where a lane has had 30+ games bowled on it without re-oiling). It certainly doesn't boast the same overall hook or backend as the best of the bowling ball world currently, but it serves its purpose very well, and will help bowlers not have to move extremely deep to find the pocket near the end of the day. I think it's a definite buy for bowlers who bowl the longer tournaments, or bowlers who frequently encounter short lane conditions.

About the Bowler

This ball is a great asset for bowlers who need a ball that is easy to control on low volume patterns. It has a smooth curve that is relatively easy to predict and finishes well down the lane. I would highly recommend this ball.

About the Bowler

The Tropical Breeze does just what it is intended to do. At the end of a tournament, when the lanes have broken down considerably, break out your Breeze and smile. While everyone else is standing in the gutter and using every inch of the lane, you can stand comfortably and roll your ball leisurely. It finds the pocket no problem. In my opinion, it is not a bad ball to use for medium oil either as long as you have a decent rev rate and you don't scorch the lanes with ball speed. I have bowled some very high games like this. The thing strikes more than you would think.

This is the ball for the player who wants to get the ball long down the lane. It does hook but just less than many others on the market. I've only had it a week and am very happy with the reaction I've been getting.

The Tropical Breeze is a great dry lane ball. The Breeze with the pearl reactor cover and low differential of .009 allows this ball to get down the lane with the greatest of ease.
But still has plenty of hitting power on the backend. But the good thing is the Breeze doesn't overreact to the dry back-ends.
The Breeze is great choice to bowl on wood lanes and or when the heads are hooking and you are having a hard time to get the ball to push down lane.
I've have used the Breeze on 3rd games in our one center when the volume of oil is on the low side. It allows me to stay further right and near the track which helps my carry greatly. When the natural or natural pearls start hooking too early drill up a Breeze ! The heavy handed players will be able to grip it an rip it with great control of the lane pattern. A great dry lane ball from Storm.

This ball is a great ball to have if you are just starting out in a league or even if you want to get adjusted to throwing a ball with some hook. This ball is my 1st fingertip ball (been using conventional grip 2 yrs prior) and i have been with my league for 3 yrs and my average has jumped from 145 to 178 within a year so this is definitely a must buy if you are serious about your game. Im actually looking to get a new ball, any suggestions?

I needed a great dry lane ball. I did some research and found this ball to be one of the weakest out there expect going to urethane so I drilled one up. This the best dry lane ball I have thrown. One house I bowl league on breaks down fast. By the middle of the second game Ineeded this ball.Threw 16 in a row play 18 at the arrows to 12 at the break point never having to move. Got a 300 the last game.Use this ball alot in practice sessions too. 215 avg. 14.5 ball speed at the back of the lanes 375 rpm's high track Surface on ball 3000 pad Step two polish. Great ball when you need it.

Tropical Breeze is probably the only ball that can really do its job on short lane patters and burnt out lane conditions.My Breeze allows me to play really straight without and reaction to early but works great down lane cause it skids so far its crazy.I can play up the boards no problem with this ball and able to stay there for a long period of time.When my natural starts to roll to early and have no backend i can change to my breeze and play the same area of the lane just with more skid and more reaction down lane then my natural.pink and purple breeze yum birthday cake.

Hello all and thanks for reading. Here is the link for Kona Breeze by Storm:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rGr87RGznc

First of what a great clean rolling ball for yet another hit by Storm. This ball is very clean through the front part of the lane and maintains great even roll through the breakpoint. This ball does not over react even in shorter oil patterns and lower volumes. Great if you are looking to control a ball on a higher friction lane surface such as wood or a used HPL surface.

In the video you can see I am much further toward the outside part of the lane trying to stay within the track area to allow the ball to roll evenly toward the pocket. Comparing the the Heat with the Hybrid coverstock you can plainly see how much further inside towards the heavier concentration of oil I am throwing with that ball than with the Kona Pearl.

The Kona Pearl is a great choice for heavier rev players trying to control the lane and also for entry level players who's main focus needs to be accuracy and consistency while practicing. Great all around lower end lower volume oil ball that will surely be a hit for many games to come.

About the Bowler

Layout- Pin under ring, cg swung positive with a hole down by the thumb, medium width/depth.

I was sure this would be the better rolling of the 2 Tropical Breeze cover options for me, but I actually like the pearl more. That being said, this ball gave me a look that is quite helpful for me on patterns like Cheetah. It is exceedingly smooth for a “weak” ball, which is far too uncommon in today’s bowling ball market. That’s most helpful when playing out by the gutter on patterns like the PBA Cheetah or Kegel Boardwalk. It also would be nice for those that kinda get on the ball and want something to help them play straighter (when most of the time ball manufacturers create balls that either hook a whole lot or are way too poppy). It has an understated look and scent that many will find appealing as well, considering the bright colors we often see on equipment nowadays.

I’m not sure how optimistic I would say I was about this ball when I first heard about it because I tend to have so many issues with weaker balls (especially the older weak Storm stuff) being too poppy off of the spot, but I was pleasantly surprised with this ball. It was angular yes, but it didn’t jerk once it made its move. It was angular but relatively smooth at the breakpoint. This ball is a far more useable piece than I had imagined and is a great compliment to my Roto Grip Rising Star- if the Rising Star gets a little to flat on the back to carry the 10, I switch to the Breeze (and likely move a couple boards right) and out the 10 goes. It looks pretty cool too and smells just like Old Spice deodorant….. Yum? Well my wife doesn’t complain I guess…
