Throw the ball farther out than you've ever done before, to the fringe, and watch it come back!

Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5"
PSA Layout - 5" x 3 7/8" x 4 1/8"
Balance Hole - On VAL from center of grip through cg

Surface Preparation - Out of Box (1500 Grit Polished)

What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
The Fringe is a follow up release in Storm's Hot line to best selling Frantic.
The Fringe features a pearlized cover with the same core as the Frantic. This change in cover material should produce a longer motion downlane with a more angular move off the break point as opposed to the hybrid cover on the Frantic.

We used the same layout as our original Frantic test ball. We expect to really see this ball shine as the pearl reactive cover will give us plenty of skid with a aggressive and angular move down lane.

What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
Exactly as expected. The Fringe will offer a great compliment ball reaction to people who already have a Frantic but want to see more movement downlane.

The Fringe sailed through the heads with ease and gave me a noticeable difference in length before it started to read the friction down lane. The
pearl reactive cover did exactly as Storm intended and allowed the Fringe to literally open up the back end coming back off the break point from a variety
of angles.

All in all the Hot line from Storm is proving to be a force to be reckoned with this season and the Fringe should definitely be on your list to try out.
