What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
I used the same layout I have used on most of my Storm tests lately.
This pin down layout allows me to get inside the track area and open up a little room for myself to the right. It tends to keep the ball pretty smooth in the heads with a strong transition at the break point.

The Modern Marvel offers a dull Hybrid coverstock that allows a stronger overall ball motion without the ball changing directions too early.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
This is my favorite ball in this series so far. I felt that Storm finally found a combination the worked well for me in this performance category as well as price point.

The Modern Marvel gave me everything I would want out of a ball that fits in its performance group. Off my hand it rolled really strong but never reacted too early. The Modern Marvel got into a much stronger roll in the middle part of the lane then any other ball we tested that night but it still had plenty of energy for the backends.

I was able to miss in by a 3-4 boards at times and the ball held wonderfully and still hit the pins with authority. As I broke the pattern down just a bit I was able to send this ball right as far as I wanted and it would come off the break point strong. As I said earlier I think this is a perfect ball motion to fit in under the Nano series and any other Premier line balls coming in the future. The Modern Marvel offers a really strong roll without something the hooks too much for slower ball speeds.
