Storm Vivid Ball Review
by Storm Staffer Casey Murphy

Rev Rate: 400 rpm
Ball Speed: 17 mph
PAP: 4 5/8 straight across

Where: Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern: 40 ft, medium volume, 4:1 ratio (close to sport)

Vivid layout (Dual Angle Layout): 50, 5 1/2 , 35

With a little higher RG than most of Storm’s or Roto’s asymetricals I was a little apprehensive about how the new M.A.D. core would matchup with the strength of the Nano’s NRG Solid Reactive coverstock. I drilled the Vivid similar to the first Nano I drilled last year which I was very successful with. I bowled on a very tough “house” pattern at my home center. The Vivid was extremely strong out of the box. So much so that I wasn’t able to throw it effectively until it had soaked up a little oil which didn’t take long btw. Once the cover tamed down a little bit I’m a big fan of the result. The new M.A.D. core clears the fronts very cleanly and leaves a lot of reaction for the backend. One trait my Nano had was it rev’d up very quickly with the lower RG and tended to stop after it hit the end of the oil pattern. The Vivid continues more off the spot. More energy, more recovery. I find I can play further right if I want because I can get the ball through the friction easier. It’s a very versatile ball and a must have for tournament bowlers.
