What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:

The Fight was great as a very controllable ball for medium conditions. At times it would lack a bit of punch and I would have carry issues. That's where I'm expecting the Street Fight to be a better option.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:

There was a ton of hype around the Iron Cross core when the Fight was released. I loved the Fight, but I didn't really notice the core much. However, one shot with the Street Fight and it was like the heavens opened and the light shined down on me. The strong, controllably angular backend motion from the Street Fight is perfect for my game. The way this ball continues through the pins is really a sight to behold.

I really like the new 3000 Grit Sheen finish that Storm has been using lately. It allows the ball to get down the lane but is still controllable on the backend. The Street Fight is the perfect complement to the Fight. In my opinion, it's the best pearl in the Thunder line since the Hy-Road Pearl. Get inside, throw it outside and watch it scream back!

Storm Street Fight another great ball in the Fight series. The ball motion is more angle in the backend then the fight but the roll is easy to control. Drilled mine 4x4x2 my favorite drill for Storm love the hit I get in the backend it shreds pins.

First off let me say that this ball surprised me. I drilled it up pretty weak. I wanted this ball to be something I went to when the lanes got tough. What surprised me about this ball was how much downlane recovery it had even though I drilled it with one of the weakest layouts I have ever used. If you are looking for a perfect compliment to your original Fight when the lanes start to breakdown, look no further than the Street Fight. This ball will give you the push through the fronts that you need during long blocks or for drier patterns. The Street Fight really reminds me of one of my favorite balls ever: Reign On. If you ever owned a Reign On then you know how versatile and reliable that ball is. The Street Fight would be a great new replacement.

Ball: Street Fight
Layout: 6 x 5 with 4” pin buffer
Coverstock: R4S – pearl reactive
Core: Iron Cross (14-16lbs.)
Finish: 3000 sheen
Flare potential: 3” – 5” HIGH
Lane conditions: 44 ft. house pattern with 2015 Flex with Fire and Ice conditioner on older HPL installed in early 2000’s and newer SPL with Infinite conditioner with ION machine.
Test results: The ball projected roll for me was early than I thought knowing it had the R4S coverstock. Usually pearls are longer in length down lane and a whole lot more angular. With it being 3000 grit sheen, the ball went longer down lane, recovered later but not anymore angular that the PHAZE II. It suited better for me in a more consistent way on newer SPL with Infinite oil. It needs the extra viscosity to remain “calm” down lane. Moving left with my feet just right off center and looking at the base of the 4 pin gave me the best look overall on both lane surface and conditioner. Very strong ball from release to the pocket, not a full step down from the PHAZE II, but a good half step down in overall hook potential. Nice THS for lanes with slicker surface and or more volume.

The Street Fight is the latest in the Fight series. It’s a touch weaker than the original Fight, which makes it perfect. I felt like the original Fight had too strong of a cover. The Street Fight solves that problem. It clears the fronts easily, backends a bunch and has unbelievable continuation. It’s the perfect ball for those that might not have a lot of ball speed or for those who need a ball that will backend and keep going.

Holy Cow. I Lay-ed this ball out with a 4x4x2 Layout. The lane condition was the White 2. I played 25 to 9. The Street Fight tracked well. When it got to its break point down lane it was not overly aggressive but quite surprising. The action of the break point was astonishing. The back-end reaction was powerful. Drilled out the box no practice and on League shot 271, 256 and 248. I highly recommend this ball. This is probably one ball every bowler should have because it has scored well on multiple patterns.

The Street Fight is the perfect complement in the Thunder Line Up. The combination of the Iron Cross weight block and the R4S Pearl reactive coverstock is clean through the heads with a devastating backend motion. The layout that I used for the Street Fight is pin over the bridge with the cg in the palm. Dual angle numbers are roughly 90 X 5 ½ X 45 off my axis point which is 5 5/8 over and ¾ up. I am right handed with medium ball speed and my rev rate is around 300. The available patterns that I was able to throw the Street Fight, Fight and the HyRoad Pearl on was the House Pattern and a flat 40 foot pattern. The first noticeable difference was how clean and effortless the Street Fight gets down the lane compared to the HyRoad Pearl and the Fight (obviously). The HyRoad Pearl wanted to pick up earlier and was more drastic at the break point. This made lining up on the house pattern interesting because I like to throw the ball straighter. The HyRoad Pearl was just either too much when I missed right or not enough if I missed left. The Street Fight on the other hand was perfect on playing up the lane in the friction. When the carry down occurred and the heads went, the Street Fight was strong enough to make the turn and had plenty of length! The Street Fight was slightly too much or not enough on the flatter pattern early. The HyRoad Pearl was a touch better because it wanted to start up faster and was stronger in the mid lane. The best ball motion on the flatter pattern was the Fight early on. It provided enough length with a dependable backend motion. As the session went along the Fight started to hook earlier and earlier… The Street Fight was the ball to go to because it was effortless to the break point with a strong continuous backend that continued off the pin deck. The Street Fight is a very readable but strong pearl bowling ball that will complement any of the stronger solid bowling balls in the Thunder or Master line.

COMMENTS

Likes: overall smooth reaction, great hitting power, versatile, cool color scheme
Dislikes: none
The Storm Stree Fight is Storms newest Thunder Line release. The ball contains the Iron Cross core and is covered with the R4S cover stock. The Street Fight is finished 3000 grit Sheen finish which gives it a duller look which really blends the reaction.
I drilled my Street fight with my favorite layout. The pin is above the middle finger with the CG kicked right of my palm. I wanted a ball that could be my new bench mark ball. The strength of this ball plus the motion has made this ball one of my favorites. The Street fight handles oil decently but it would much rather deal with medium and shorter patterns with less volume. The sheen finish really blends the reaction and gives it a smooth reaction off the breakpoint.
I recommend this ball for a bowler who is looking for that next great benchmark go to ball. I think this ball could be drilled with many different layouts and would perform exactly how you want it. I think you could shine it up or dull it down to give you different reactions as well. There is not many balls out there that you can say that about.

I drilled my Street Fight up pin up at 65* by 5 by 35*. I left the Street Fight in box surface to throw. I get an even reaction from the Street Fight. I was able to use this as a ball down option from my original Fight and got more length and later back end motion from the Street Fight. I also used the Street Fight on flatter and tougher patterns where I wanted to keep my target in front of me. Drill one up for more length than the original Fight.

The Street Fight is a pearl version of the Fight, and is the latest entry into the Thunder line. I could talk for days about this ball. The original Fight was a very situational ball, it was great in certain circumstances, but there were better choices in others. I had expected a pearl version of it to be in the same vein, but have been pleasantly stunned to find a ball that is atypical of releases now, being that it doesn't bounce or jump off friction. It has a very smooth but consistent read off the dry, and blends wet/dry lines exceptionally. It's great for controlling sharper backends, to switch to when the track starts drying out or is a great control option for when the lanes get really spotty or dry in longer format tournaments. I feel that it will work best for heavier rev rates, but the low rev stroker that points it from the corner should also appreciate it as a ball that gives them both hook and control.

The Street Fight is the latest ball in the Fight series. It’s a overall a little weaker than the original Fight, which makes it perfect ball down from it. The original Fight, in my opinion, had too strong of a cover. The Street Fight is not the case and solves that problem. It clears the fronts, backends a bunch and has strong continuation. It’s the perfect ball for those that might not have a lot of ball speed or for those who need a ball that will backend and keep going.

Storm Street Fight
Layout: pin above the bridge cg out to the right 1.5 inches. Oob condition
Lane conditions: 40 ft ths, hpl

In this ball I wanted something that I could use when the lanes started to break down some and when I started the losing the heads. With this layout and my ball speed it allows me to get the ball down the lane while retaining energy allowing a strong backend motion to the pocket. I am thoroughly impressed with this piece, it is a must have when your bowling on a lighter volume of oil. The shelf appeal for this ball is great being a purple/ white combo with a blackberry fragrance. This ball is available now. Go see you local pro shop operator today, you won't be disappointed.

Storm Street Fight Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

After drilling the Original Fight and having some success with it, I was excited to hear Storm was coming out with a pearl version of the Fight, called the Street Fight. With a RG of 2.62 and Diff of .43, the Street Fight is made to be clean and have a quicker response time down lane. Out of the box, the surface is at 3000, but I’ve had some success bringing that down closer to 2000 to smooth out that response time.

I’ve drilled one Street Fight so far and it’s mapped out as: 5 x 4 ½ with no weight hole needed. When I layout a ball as such, I’m typically looking for a bit more length and expecting a faster response time. By drilling the Street Fight like that, I’ve used this ball the most when the lanes have gone through transition, I need length, and some pop down lane. By adjusting the surface down to 2000, I was able to create a bit of a smoother motion, but because the cover is pearl, it still flies through the front of the lane.

If you are missing a clean, pearl piece that will provide a quicker response time, the Street Fight should be the next ball you drill!

I really like the Street Fight! For a pearl, it’s really smooth and continuous.

This core is great. I’ve always been a fan of bigger cores and there aren’t many that are larger than this one. It sounds so good when rolling though the pocket.

I’m finding the Street Fight is a bit earlier than my Fight with the same layout; however, this could be to the number of games I’ve put on the Fight. The Street Fight is really good on blended house patterns that taper towards the outside and at the end of the pattern.

I’m looking forward to trying it on some medium sport patterns, just to see how it reads the end of the pattern. I’m hoping that it’s a smooth as it is on the THS.

This one has become a staple in my league bag and hope that it fits in my tournament bag as well.

I drilled up the new Storm Street Fight. The layout I used was 15x55x5 this pattern rolls pretty early but really kicks on the back end. Compared to the Fight this ball is much longer and sharper change of direction. This ball is a great addition to the Thunder line and a great ball for the value.

The Street Fight is the new addition to the Master Line from Storm. It is the pearl version of the original Fight. I thought the Fight okay but it sometimes acted like the cover was too strong for the cover/core combo. Well the Street Fight with the pearl cover did the trick. Much cleaner through the fronts, and still keeping the same controlled rolling motion. Thus is is a lot more predictable and stronger on the backend. The cover takes surface adjustments really well. I have used it with 1000 grit and all the way up to Shine. A great addition to the Storm Family.

The new Street Fight from Storm is a pearlized follow up to the original Fight. The simply massive Iron Cross core returns but is now wrapped in the brand spankin new R4S pearl shell. This new iteration of the hugely popular Reactor cover that's been seen in great Storm balls throughout the years really blurs the line between mid range and high end reaction. Match that with the 3000 grit surface that comes from the factory and you get a unique result: a symmetric ball that gives you the length and snap of a pearl with the easy revving mid lane read of a solid. Out of the box, this ball flat out HOOKED down lane! I was astonished as I kept moving further and further left and had to keep reminding myself that this was a Thunder Line ball. The amount of friction built into the RS4 cover is excellent and the Street Fight had no problem recovering from even the steepest of angles. I'm also a big believer in a 3000 or 4000 grit pearl because with todays over/under house shots it's not uncommon to see the ball simply skid way too much on shots pulled inside of target. Overall, I was very impressed with just how strong this ball turned at the end of the pattern. The Iron Cross core gives the ball just the right amount of skid and is an absolute beast in the pins. The amount of energy transferred to the pocket is crazy. Get use to knocking pins around everywhere cuz the gloves are off with the new Street Fight.

I'll start by saying that this ball is not exactly in my wheel house. I'm not a superstar out on the lanes and i drill them better than I toss them. With that in mind it was a bit tough for me to match up on our house shot with the Streetfight. I roll it a bit fast with lower than average axis rotation, so I had to thread a needle to hit the pocket...We are going 45 feet with a high viscosity conditioner, this is not the ideal environment for this ball and me to be friends. I am certain on a different pattern and another set of hands this ball would be excellent. What is funny to me is that I've had a bunch of great games with it, but it's just not comfortable for ME to use. I've drilled a few for my customers and everyone had positive feedback. I'm curious to see how people respond to it during our Match Maker Event. Thanks for reading, until next time! #stormnation #bowlupastorm
