Storm Tropical Heat Hybrid Black/Silver Reviewed By: UF Bowling 06/14/2011 10:29 ( stars)

Ball: Tropical Heat Hybrid
Ball Speed: 15-16 MPH
Rev Rate: Medium
Axis: High
Right Handed

For my Tropical Heat Hybrid, the pin is located under the ring finger. This layout was designed to give this ball good backend without sacrificing too much mid-lane read.

Throughout the season this has been my ball of choice when my earlier hooking equipment starts to check up too early, typically sometime during the second game. This is also usually the point that I make a large move towards the inside in order to get out of the track area. This is where the tropical heat really shines; it gets through the heads cleanly, makes it through the mid-lane without over reacting or skidding into the pit, then makes a quick turn towards the pocket creating a nice entry angle.

While this ball is amazing on medium to long patterns, it really suffers when it comes to short patterns. I jut has too much backend and becomes hard to control.

As with all of the STORM equipment I own, (2Furious, 2Fast, Prodigy, Natural, Virtual Gravity, Tropical Heat Hybrid) when matched with the proper lane condition, this ball will give you quite an edge over your competition.
