If there is any question that this is a pearl particle cover throw it once and you will know for sure. I am usually not a big fan a pearl particle covers because they tend to give me a real in between ball reaction. I truly think if this cover would have been on any other core shape this ball would have been no different. I am a believer int he new Shape-Lock core system from Storm. We used a fairly typical layout for us, pin 5" from PAP (5 1/8" over 1/8" up) with the "key" (mass bias) 2-2 1/4" to the right of my thumb.

The ball is somewhat clean through the front part of the lane. The ball reads the middle of the lane somewhat well and has a little left over on the back.

I think this core and cover combination is not what the bowlers expect from Storm, however given their track record recently with the Paradigm I guess this ball is OK. NOTE: Make sure you talk to your local pro, the wrong layout can make the ball a bit jumpy and worse that it already is.
