What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Well obviously just by looking at this ball you think Virtual Gravity and of course that ball was a beast.
My original test ball was drilled using a layout I love but overall not many people use something like that. With the Virtual Gravity Nano I decided to use a more conventional layout and a layout we have seen a lot lately on some other test balls.

This layout on a more aggressive Virtual Gravity should create an amazing amount of mid-lane roll with a absolute ridiculous amount of motion on the back end. I am really excited to throw this ball and see what it does.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I got the Nano really close to my original Virtual Gravity. I do see the slight increase in overall ball motion and overall hook. I already stated that the two drillings on my original VG and the new Nano are completely different with that being said I think this shows just how versatile of a combination Storm has created and I completely agree with the release of this ball from them.

The Nano was awesome, off my hand I felt like there was nowhere on the lane I could not get this ball back from. As you can see if you watch our video review on the ball my ball motion was long, strong and angular. The Nano never quit and the amount of hook I had in my hands was amazing. For most of you that threw a Virtual Gravity you will love the new look the Nano offers, not saying the original was not strong but the change is noticeable. If you never threw the original you are in for a treat because this ball will not let you down.

As the night progressed I was able to move in and find some more oil and I could throw this ball as long as I wanted to. This was a feature I loved about
the original Virtual Gravity. I remember bowling league and everyone else had to go to weaker balls and they lost a little something and I just went deeper
and threw the VG all night. This ball showed me similar features and I think would allow the same if I wanted.

Don't miss the new release coming early March, it will blow you away.
