Storm’s October Premier release is the Byte which is the 3rd bowling ball in the Premier Line. The Byte compliments the Sync, which was released in February, by clearing the front part of the lane with ease and has a dynamic backend motion. The reason why the Byte has effortless length and tremendous backend motion is from the ERG Pearl Coverstock and G2+ Core. The Byte will be in play when the pattern starts to dry out. This is where the Sync lost energy and could not make the turn… The Byte will be able to make the turn.

The layout that I used on the Byte was 75 X 6 X 55 for the dual angle people or pin over the middle finger with no extra hole and mass bias slightly kicked out. My PAP is 5 5/8 over and ¾ up with my rev rate is around 300 and ball speed around 15MPH. I am right handed. I went with a slightly “weaker layout” was to emphasize the Byte’s length and backend motion especially when I have to move in and go more left to right.

The first pattern I threw the Byte on was a typical house pattern. Early on the Byte was over / under but as the session continued and pattern became more blended the Byte was a striking machine! The Byte really allowed me to open up the lane and gave me recovery that I am not accustomed to. I compared the Byte to two bowling balls in Storm’s arsenal the Sync and HyRoad Pearl. The first comparison was with the Sync. The Sync rolled about 10 feet earlier than the Byte. The Byte also had a stronger backend motion than the Sync. The next ball I compared to the Byte was the HyRoad Pearl. They both gave me about the same length. The difference was in the backend motion… The Byte was about 3 to 4 boards stronger than the HyRoad Pearl.

I also threw the Byte on several sport patterns. The Byte was in play on the short to medium patterns where there was some friction down the lane. I had a lot success on the USBC Open Team pattern when the pattern started to dry out and had to move left and get the ball going to right. The Byte is just effortless through the front part of the lane. I also threw the Byte on a version of the Viper pattern on a hard surface and the Byte’s length was an issue until the pattern broke down some and the friction spot was more evident. The surface on the Byte was out of the box with no modification

The Byte will help you take a Byte out of your competition!
