Storm's Reign continues their amazing Thunder line.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 4 3/4" under ring finger
Mass Bias Position - n/a
CG Placement - right of center line and below mid line
Balance Hole - 1" x 2" hole on VAL from center of grip through cg
Surface Preparation - Out of Box (1500 Grit Polish)
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I have a Dimension drilled almost identical to this but with a slightly weaker pin position. I figured since this was one performance line down from that ball I would get the pin in a little stronger position. Plus, I had heard that this ball rolled really good but was a smoother reacting ball. This layout tends to give the ball a little more kick from the back part of the mid-lane down for me.
This line of balls has always been a really good performer for Storm. Most of you that have seen or heard of the Hy-Road know how good that ball is in the price and performance category it's in so this ball had a lot to live up to for me.
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
All I can say is that when you're hot you're hot. Storm is doing everything right, and they just keep making great pieces of equipment.
I forget who told me this ball rolled smooth and did not react much but they obviously did not throw it enough. This ball is a powerhouse, it rolls great. I was amazed at how far down the lane the Reign got before it started
to read friction. As you will see from my ball test video, the lanes were hooking a little more then normal but the Reign handled that with no problem.
I got this ball back from any point on the lane and it had so much energy stored up that it carried from pretty much anywhere as well. As Storm has been known to do, they kept the Thunder line very strong this season. This ball will find its way down plenty of lanes this up coming season and I think bowlers of all skill levels will find it just as good as I did.
