Storm Phaze Zero Bowling Ball

The Phaze line got off to a slow start with the original Phaze, but when the Phaze 2 dropped it quickly became a staple in everyone’s bowling bags. Storm introduced this Phaze Zero earlier this year in Asia and it was a huge success. The GI-17 cover and the Velocity core used in the other Phazes gave this ball a similar motion to the Phaze 2 but the GI-17 cover is a touch stronger than the TX-16 Solid from the Phaze 2.
