Storm Tropical Storm Red/Black Pearl Reviewed By: DMZ 04/28/2009 13:29 ( stars)

I got this ball after not bowling for about 20 years. My 20 years of bowling in the 70's and 80's was on the old wooden lanes. In those days it was tough to keep a 175 avg. on a mens league. Lane conditions were never consistent at your house and really changed from house to house. I decided just recently to get back into bowling and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on a ball yet. So the pro shop here recommended this with an aggressive drill. I don't crank the ball a lot and ball speed is middle of the road to slow. I run a 15 lb ball. Discounting the first 3 games as getting use to it I averaged about 190 for a few weeks on dryer conditions. Then I have been hit with freshly oiled conditions or carry down after junior league bowlers. Have had a tough time finding a line to carry the pocket with authority. Dropped down to like 170 avg. But I found the line recently at my house for fresh oil conditions and back up to 190 avg. Good ball for the money. Smells good also! I use a plastic 14 lb. ball for right side spare shots. I think I am ready to graduate to something a bit more aggressive as my house takes really good care of the lanes and when I get back into a league in the fall I will need something a bit stronger. This ball tends at time not to finish through the pins well. But that is partly due to me and carry down. No problem recommending this to someone for the money and who is at my level. I gave it an OK only due to the fact I am over growing its capability and that is good! Its a fine ball for the bucks and for medium skill bowlers.
