The Attitude Shift brings a new level of performance to Storm's Premier Line of balls.
Pin to PAP(5 1/8" over 1/8" up) - 5"
Mass Bias Position - 55 degrees
CG Placement - 1" right of grip center
Balance Hole - none
Surface Preparation - Out of Box Finish (2000-grit Abralon)
A few weeks ago I had the bright idea to make some changes to my grip and so I started cleaning out all of my older balls in my arsenal. By the time I was done I realized I did not keep anything that had my old specs and I only had a few balls with the new grip. After a couple of weeks using the new grip I decided to go back to my old grip and that meant I had nothing. So from here on out I am rebuilding my ball arsenal and will most likely be adding a few balls that I already had and got rid of.
Now without further delay here is my ball review of one of my only two balls.
What I Was Looking For In This Ball Layout:
Well after reading the above paragraph you know at this point I just needed a couple of balls to throw during league. But the layout and thought behind this
ball was not totally brainless. I knew that I have had great success with Storm product in the past in my normal center. I also knew that I did much better with reactive covers in this center which made me think I may really like this ball. I had a Shift originally but did not match up well with the particle pearl cover but I did think I would like the weight block in a reactive and voila here it is.
I wanted a strong rolling ball that did not over read friction but still offered me plenty of movement. I know this sounds like a lot to ask out of a ball now a days but I have had similar reactions with some older Storm stuff.(Special Agent - loved it)
What I Ended Up With in the Ball and Layout:
I have to tell you that if you ever get a bug to change your grip for no reason what so ever - DON'T! After throwing this ball I realized that I should have never started messing around with my grip because this feels better than ever.
To top it off I had one of the best ball reactions I have had recently. The ball everything I wanted and then some.
In the heads the ball rolled as strong as I have seen lately. It looked like it could almost be too strong for me in the heads and roll too early but that
must have been an optical illusion because it did not. It kept this strong motion in the middle part of the lane and in the back it just exploded like a polished reactive ball. I have to tell you that I love this ball, usually I need some time with a ball to say that but when your only complaint is that the color looks a little odd going down the lane you know you have a winner.
For me on the house shot I bowl on this will be my starting ball. It offers the big ball motion you want and need for fresh conditions but adds versatility that allowed me to use this ball into the end of the second game. Strong in the oil and reads so great off friction.
Bowl Up A Storm!
