Fight from Storm have you looked at that weight block that is awesome. I will be drilling a few there are many layouts to try for a lot of oil patterns. The one I have is the same one Dustin is rolling in the video. Very easy to control and with the smooth roll great ball for med-heavy oil patterns.

All I can say is WOW! Got my Fight drilled up and was IMMEDIATELY impressed. My house lanes are pretty unpredictable and it can be pretty tough to find a ball to match up for more than a game or so. Out of the gate, the Fight made it's prescence known. I'm not a big power player, so I don't have a bunch of "ten-straight-back" strikes, but the Fight turned the corner and exploded! Three games on heavy oil and it was still hitting hard at pin contact. My league average usually stays right around 170-180, but, two weeks in, I've thrown TWO 600 series, back to back. No more pesky 7-pins for this lefty. The review videos show just how explosive this ball is. Like I said earlier... WOW!!!

About the Bowler

The Fight is eye candy that backs that up with substance. It has a new core and coverstock, and the core is the largest weight block Storm has ever produced. It has a very high rg at 2.62, but also has a high differential at .043, so it gives you easy length through the heads, while the solid cover and differential gives you traction in the midlane and a booming backend. The Fight reminds me more of a solid version of the Hyroad than the Hyroad Solid did, it has many of the same characteristics of the Hyroad, but with more overall hook. It's an absolute house shot killer that will come back from virtually anywhere. It acts like a benchmark solid with more pop on the backend, and that allows you to open the lane up, or to continue to use this ball as the lanes transition and you're forced inside. This ball will be great for strokers and crankers alike, as it gives strokers pop on the backend they don't usually have, and crankers length and recovery. Put some Fight in your game!

About the Bowler

The Storm Fight is part of the Thunder line, it features brand new symmetrical Iron CrossTM core, R4S Solid coverstock.

I drilled my Fight 4.5” x 5.5”. This put my pin just under my ring finger.

The Iron Cross core provides a good amount of midlane roll, and even though the R4S cover is solid, the Fight produces a lot of backend. I have thrown it on the 2015 USBC Open Championship team pattern, and a few different length and volume house patterns. When I first saw the specs of the Fight, I saw the shape and the super high RG numbers on the core (RG of 2.60 for 16 lbs!). I am glad I went with a pin-buffer on the higher side when drilling my Fight. I do not see much laboring, if any, out of the huge Iron Cross core. I love seeing cores rev up on the quicker side, so I am very happy to see that the Fight doesn’t just lope down the lane.

On the USBCOC team pattern, the Phaze was too angular at the end of the pattern on the fresh. Once the lanes transitioned and pushed some oil down, the Fight rolled well and really opened up the lane nicely. On the house shot however, the Fight with a 1,500 grit Abralon pad by hand created some ridiculous amount of area. It is a motion that was definitely missing in my bag and is the perfect shape to go with the Hyroads in the Thunder line.

Storm Fight Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The Fight is the newest addition to the Thunder Line and has provided us with a different motion than we’ve seen in this line. The Fight is filled with the new Iron Cross weight block, which is the largest core Storm has ever put into a ball. With the R4S Solid Reactive cover, the Fight is the smoothest ball in my bag.

I’ve drilled one Fight so far and have been able to use it on multiple patterns. When I drilled this ball, my goal was to create a shape for flatter, harder patterns. I drilled it as: 3 ½ x 3 ½ with a medium sized hole directly on my axis. I haven’t tweaked the surface at all, I just let lane oil shine it for me.

I’ve been able to use this Fight mostly on medium to shorter patterns. Even with the big core, the RG is high enough to create a good amount of length through the front part of the lane. Because of the strong drilling, I’ve taken a lot of the motion away from down lane, and used more energy through the front and mid-lane.

If you are a looking for a slower response time, smooth, but predictable shape in your bag, the Fight will be your best bet. It compliments the Alpha Crux, IQ 30, and HyRoad very well.

Storm Fight Review by Casey Murphy

Orientation: Right Handed
Rev Rate: 375 RPM
Speed: 16-17 MPH
PAP: 4 5/8 straight across

Location: Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern: High Volume THS
Layout: 45, 5 ½, 40

When I first caught a glimpse of the Iron Cross core (RG 2.62) I was VERY excited to throw the Fight. When I finally got the opportunity I was not disappointed. The Fight creates a backend motion I’ve never seen before. The cover creates ample midlane roll, but somehow the fight takes a left turn you don’t expect to see with a cover that strong. The continuation the Fight produces is something you just don’t see. It needs some friction, longer patterns may cause the Fight to be too much on the end of the pattern, but most house patterns and most hooking sport patterns are going to match up VERY well to the Fight. The Fight really has the perfect reaction. It’s clean in the front part of the lane because of the high RG, but the cover picks up a predictable midlane roll, and the core shape/diff causes the it to tip down lane and continue over the 8 pin! You’re not going to believe your eyes when you throw the Fight, no one has created a reaction like this!

About the Bowler

Just to start, I'm not a great bowler by any means. I joined a men's classic league earlier this year because a friend of mine needs a couple bowlers for his team. I hadn't bowled in a couple years prior and when I had bowled previously it was just recreational play. I bowl by not putting my thumb in the ball but I don't cradle the and do a exaggerated throw like you see the "macho" types do. I just simply can't get a good hook with my thumb in after games and games of practice. I picked up the Fight because I wanted something new that no one had yet in the league. It took me a few weeks to work out where to aim at but the last few weeks I've consistently bowled a 525+ series with a 200+ game in at least one of my games. I'm not the greatest and I may bowl differently from bowlers with more experience but I'm totally satisfied with this ball. My last game this last week at league I hit 8 strikes in the game and this ball definitely packs some punch.

The new Storm Fight features a new weight block and with this weight block you get a 2.61 RG which is pretty high which will allow the ball to get further down lane but because of the solid cover stock the ball is very controlled and versatile.

This is a ball that has a predictable roll. It isn't as strong as some of the other Storm products. I bowl on a house pattern that is 41 feet long and quite a bit of oil near the middle typical house shot just kicked up a little bit. I drilled it with the pin just above the finger and a balance hole to reduce the flare. The overall hook for me is less than the Storm Optimus pearl which I have drilled pretty much the same. The motion is cleaner through the heads and the mid lane roll is stable and the move through the back is strong and continuous. I hit mine with a 2000 pad and put polish back which gave me less overall hook. My stats are 375 revs with 15 mph so the solids don't usually get much play for me. This one will however because it isn't jumping off the pattern and in my opinion I think because of the huge weight block that will help in giving me the shape that I need when the lanes break down. It won't be the first ball out of my bag , but will be a big factor because this ball is very good when the lanes are starting to break down. I can't give it a five I haven't thrown it on anything but a house shot.

If you are looking for very controllable yet strong motion, the Fight is the ball for you. I cannot get over how easy this ball is to control on the backend. It is also the most versatile ball in my bag. I have thrown it on everything from Seoul to Shark, and the one common factor is its predictable/controlled motion. I am anxious to get out the Open Championships to see what this ball can do. I would like to drill another one with a weaker layout to see how it compares to the one I have. The candy apple scent is also very appealing.

About the Bowler

I was very excited about the fight when I saw how large the core was. i immediately thought of the Reign series, which I absolutely loved. The ball motion that the Fight creates is something very different. Very smooth yet rolly through the front part of the lane with ample backend. The backend that this ball generates is amazing for the surface it is at. What I love about the Fight is how great it is on tough lane conditions. It reminds me of (dare i say it) a Hyroad with just a little earlier read. This ball would be a great addition to any arsenal. Go get one now!

Review for Storm Fight by Tim Behrendt

When I first had seen the new Iron Cross core, I got pretty excited and was instantly intrigued. This core pushes the RG limits. With the RG being 2.62 I decided to drill it pretty strong. (Pin under my ring and a hole down in the P3 range. Even with being a solid cover and a strong layout, this ball does not touch the front part of the lane. With that said this also creates a backend motion that has tremendous continuation.

The Fight is definitely something different in my bag, and will remain in my tournament bags. I have found early success with this ball on medium and even longer lighter volume patterns. With being so clean through the fronts I have also found the Fight to be a very good “GO TO” ball when the heads start to hook. A definite Thumbs up.

After using the new Storm Fight for the past few weeks I wanted to post my thoughts about this ball. The layout I used on my Fight was 6x5 off by pap. The R4S cover really helps get this ball down the lane and the new iron core is a nice smooth motion in the back part of the lane. This ball is a great complement to my Rocket which get's into a heavier roll and sharper change of direction.

This is a great addition to the thunder line for Storm and I would recommend this ball for anyone regardless of your skill level.

COMMENTS

Likes: Strong overall reaction. Real strong off the break point. Reacts to heavier oil real good.
Dislikes: none
The Storm Fight is the newest solid release in Storms Thunder Line. The fight contains the new Iron Cross weight block. The covers is the new R4S Solid cover and is finished with 3000 grit abralon.
The fight is the new solid in the Thunder line replacing the HyRoad Solid. The ball is very similar in shape as the Hyroad Solid but for me the Fight is a bit smoother and a little less reactive. I drilled mine with 32x5.5x32 which is the same as my Hyroad Solid. The fight reads and reacts to heavier oil real well. For me it was a little strong on a typical house shot but on patterns with heavier volume the Fight responds better with a smoother reaction. You don’t have to throw the ball away from the pocket to get it to stay in the pocket. I also like how I can move inside 4th arrow and the ball reads the mid lane and carries well. It’s a very good versatile ball.
I recommend this ball for anyone looking to replace their current mid range solid. This ball is great for heavier volume house patterns and medium to long sport patterns. If the ball is too strong you can give it a weaker low flare layout and the ball will still hit the pins hard. If you need a little extra you can sand it down more to get that reaction. That’s what makes this ball so great.

About the Bowler

I wasn't even looking for a new ball when I got my Storm Fight. I'm not big on storm, but when I saw a video about this ball on facebook I was really intrigued by how innovative the core was so I thought, why not. I had it drilled how I normally do (Pin at about a ten o clock angle over the ring finger).
Never have I had more fun throwing a ball, nor have I ever used the word "fun" to describe a bowling ball. the recovery on the back end is the best I've ever seen. so many times I sent it out to 1 or 2 board thinking "well, that's going in the ditch." only to have it snap back to the pocket at the last second. The carry is great, and it's differential is low so it will get down the lane a bit. This ball is designed to perform on the backend, so if you are looking for a ball that hooks early, look elsewhere. otherwise, I highly recommend this ball, even on slightly oilier conditions.

The Storm Fight is unlike any bowling ball we have ever seen before! With that brand new core it gives you a shape that
no ball can mimic. The Fight is very clean in the front part of the lane and picks up a very heavy and continuous roll down lane.
Because the Fight hooks so much it can be used early on the "fresh" or very late in the day on the "burn". I recommend the Storm Fight
to anyone who likes long/smooth/continuous bowling balls.

The newest release into Storm’s Thunder Line is the Fight. The Fight features the largest weight block Storm has produced the Iron Cross. The Iron Cross (2.62 RG) is surrounded by the R4S Solid Reactive coverstock. I was surprised by how much the Fight picked up in the mid lane.

I was able to throw the Fight against most of the bowling balls in the Thunder Line. The first difference is how much the Fight reads the mid lane and the continuation is Phenomenal. The Fight picks up where the HyRoad Solid left off. The strength of the backend and mid lane control makes the Fight the strongest readable ball I have thrown so far. It is stronger than an IQ Tour and the HyRoad. The Fight adds early and strong to the Thunder Line. The HyRoad Pearl, Sky Rocket and Rocket all want to get down the lane and then boom at the backend. The Fight is just the opposite. The Fight wants to get up and go but still strong enough to go through the pins with authority! The Fight might replace my trusty IQ Tour as the first ball out of my bag on any given day!

Bring the Fight to your Competition!

The new ball in the Thunder Line is the Storm FIGHT. The Fight has all new core called
Iron Cross which is the largest weight block Storm has ever developed. Storm wrapped the Fight with the R4S Solid Reactive coverstock. I drilled mine 5 1/4 x 4 x 2 3/4.
The Fight even with a solid cover gets through the fronts pretty well with its high rg of 2.62, but picks up in midlane real well with the medium differential of .043.
For me its a different ball motion. Its more like a benchmark ball, as its very controllable and stays online. But Fight has a very heavy roll for me and continues through the pins. Similar roll to the Marvel-S but cleaner through the heads.
If you looking for control and continuation then the Fight is the ball for you.

Are you ready to Fight?

The new Fight from Storm Bowling features the R4S Solid Reactive Coverstock and the Iron Cross Core. First thing that came to mind when I saw this ball was wow the weight block is HUGE. It's insane. But the ball motion that the core gives is a ball motion that we haven't seen from Storm in awhile. It's different from anything they have in their lineup right now. This ball is really clean through the front part of the lane, smooth through the mid lane, and has amazing continuation on the back end and through the pin deck. Storm has another winner. Join the Fight by ordering one today.
