How To Choose The Right Storm Bowling Ball

If you wish to determine how to choose the right Storm bowling ball, please consider three key elements in a selection process:
1. Price

2. Lane Conditions

3. Ball Weight

It is important to know that in recent years, Storm has placed great emphasis on developing well balanced lines of top performance bowling balls including great versatility in design and ball reaction capabilities. You can find a price range to aide any bowler in how to choose the right Storm bowling ball and not sacrifice quality or performance.


Storm performance balls are available at from $75.00 - $81.99 for the ever-popular Tropical Storm series featuring urethane coverstocks and are good choices for use on dry lanes or for new or beginning bowlers.


The Storm “Hot Line” series is available in the $95.99 price range and features the Fast, Furious, or Natural reactive series all of which work well on medium to medium-dry lane conditions.


The “Thunder and Master Lines” lines are available from $105.99 - $114.99 and include the Dimension and Reign series of solid and pearl coverstocks with dynamic cores designs which are excellent choices for competitive bowlers. These balls will perform well on medium to medium-heavy oil lane conditions.


Finally, in the $136.99 range is the “Premier Line” series which includes the Invasion w/ FREE Stitched Microfiber Towel as the latest release which boasts a high flare potential rating thereby creating a sharp hook angle and an aggressive coverstock for oily lane conditions.


The most popular selection of ball weight with adult bowlers is 15 lbs. on the high end, 14 lbs. for some women, juniors, or senior bowlers, and down to 12 lbs. for those bowlers struggling with handling higher weighted bowling balls. Storm bowling balls maintain good integrity in the core design and coverstock quality at any of the weight ranges from 12 lbs. to 16 lbs. as the maximum allotted weight available. If a ball fits you properly, it can be surprising how handling a pound or two extra in weight is possible.
