BALL REVIEW
The Byte is one of the most highly anticapted balls hitting the shelves as it is the follow up release to the Sync™. Many have asked the same question, “Is this ball going to get me further down the lane than my Sync?” You’ll see that the Byte carries a new Core name G2+™, yet it has the same shape as the G2 core found in the Sync. Storm made this change to the core as to avoid having the ball starting early and then not giving that back-end motion you need for the ball to recover. With a higher RG (aka length) and a lower differential (aka flare) I did not notice any loss in the mid lane response.

My first game out of the box I threw the front 8 before ringing a 10 and punching out playing the 4th arrow out to 5. The pearl cover helps propel the ball down the lane and bounce off of the dry to increase your angle of entry. And we all know that without the right entry angle, you can forget about carrying 10 pins to the pit. Where this ball is paying big dividends for me is that it blends out the over-wall found when league first starts. I can really lean against the oil line and trust the ball to drive through the 1-3-5 and split the 8-9 pins over and over. This core continues to provide that good heavy roll and a consistent reaction.

COMMENTS
ERG cover is clean in the heads and really recovers down the lane.
