This is an unusual ball in today's world of high performance cover-stock. I bought the Storm Natural for when the lanes dry out and my reactive-resin cover-stock bowling balls over-hook. I had this drilled for max hook (like all of my bowling-balls) knowing that urethane will not hook as much as any of the newer technology balls. The theory of not hooking as much worked perfect and I was able to switch balls and use the same aiming point when the lanes are dry. However, what I forgot to figure out was that urethane not gripping the lanes like reactive-resin (so less hook) also does not drive through the pins like reactive-resin. I was not getting the pins to mix and I just was frustrated with the ball until about 15th game. I switched to a much straighter angle. Normally I shoot down the 5 board and let it hook into the pocket, but with urethane this would not produce a good pin reaction. By shooting down the 13 board and hitting the pocket much straighter I got the pins to fly all over the place. I shot a 258 that game and found this was the best approach for me. Be prepared to do some experimenting before you find out how to throw this ball.
