Get ready for the pearlized version of the Dimension from Storm.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 4 1/2"
Mass Bias Position - n/a
CG Placement - 2 1/2" right of center, 1/2" down
Balance Hole - 7/8" x 2" from center of grip through cg on VAL
Surface Preparation - Out of Box
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
This layout is fairly similar to my Dimension which I use as a bench mark ball. I did decide to put the pin in a stronger position then my regular Dimension. I kicked it 3/4" further right, a little closer to my PAP hopefully making this pearlized version stronger then my polished Dimension.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I love when plans come together and this one did perfectly. The Second Dimension rolled almost identical to my Dimension but stronger. This was exactly what I was looking for this ball to do. Keep in mind this is a pearlized shiny Dimension so the ball is going to get through the heads pretty clean. My best opinion is to use a stronger layout on this ball so it does not get to long down the lane.
Anyway back to may ball reaction. Through the heads the ball was smooth with a pretty strong roll. The placement of the extra hole and the logos made the ball look really cool off my hand. As the ball made the transition and read the friction it revved up nicely. I would say this was where I saw the biggest
difference in the 2 Dimensions. My Dimension is drilled weaker and shined up with Moon Shine so it still skids when it gets to the friction area. The Second Dimension does not it reads the friction and moves hard. On the back the ball was a typical Storm ball, it just kept driving through the pin deck and carried like a dream.
Overall another winner from Storm, especially if you have a Dimension that you like you can really play off of this ball with a different layout.
