What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I have a few different bowling balls laid out the same way and this is one of my favorite ball layouts. On pearlized equipment, this layout creates a faster revving midlane reaction with great recovery in the backend.

Storm's midline performance balls have been leading the industry as of late and the Reign looks to be no exception. If you're looking for the absolute best performance for the price, Storm's Thunder line is the way to go.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Just another home run for Storm. The symmetric Cam core paired with the Rs2 Pearl Reactive coverstock are amazing together. The combination of this layout with the ball's characteristics allowed me to move left on the approach and really hook the lane.

I used this ball for a few games in league and the only time I had trouble carrying was when the ball drove too hard off the back end and stoned a few 9 pins (I've said it before, leaving a stone 9 pin here and there is not particularly a bad thing... better than flat 10's).

I'm going to make a call on this ball now. This is the ball people are going to be talking about this season. For the tournament bowlers out there, you're going to want a few of these in your bag, along with the Hy-Road. These compliment each other very well and are versatile enough to dominate a majority of lane conditions.

If you're looking to improve your game and get more reaction, you're not going to find a better ball than the Storm Reign for the price.
