Storm staff member and PBA champion Pete Dohan discusses the differences in bowling ball motion between the Storm Physix and Proton Physix bowling balls.
Storm Physix Bowling Ball
The development of the new PhysiX has been a?sprawling process that has spanned several years. Dialing in the precise dynamics of a shape that is iconic to the Storm brand was our ambition, and the PhysiX became our destination. Yes, it officially boasts a 0.053 total differential in a 15 pound ball, and the rest of its prodigious oomph accepts credit from the strategically placed inlets surrounding the oval bolt and greater mass displacement along the z-axis creating an enhanced intermediate differential. With extreme amounts of power and dynamics, the PhysiX almost feels like cheating.
Firmly ensconced at the top of the Storm performance heap is the all-new Atomic Core.

Storm Proton Physix Bowling Ball
Think Like a Proton. Always Positive.
It’s really no surprise why the PhysiX and AstroPhysiX have been wildly popular ever since their respective debuts. After all, the PhysiX offers one of the shapeliest reactions available, and the AstroPhysiX follows it up with stellar performance when the pattern opens up, and more length and backend are required. But until now, there really hasn’t been a PhysiX truly suited for heavy oil. Well, consider the problem solved! The Proton PhysiX is here to give you traction and hook on virtually any heavy oil condition imaginable.
Since surface plays such a pivotal role in ball reaction, we knew that we had to select just the right coverstock and finish in order to make the Proton PhysiX live up to its billing. That’s why we selected NeX Solid Reactive for this big-hooking beast. NeX has met and exceeded all of our expectations in the lab and on the lanes, combining the robust midlane read you’d expect from a heavy oil ball while maintaining the strong entry angle needed in order to maximize pin carry. The NeXon the Proton PhysiX will come in a 2000-grit box finish and with an eye-catching magenta, black, and violet color scheme that will look good on the rack, in your bag, and on the lanes.
The Atomic Core returns to power up this latest PhysiX offering. Strong backend motion, continuation, and pocket-crushing power are all hallmarks of the Atomic Core. In the Proton PhysiX, this low-RG, high-differential engine will deliver the same combination of consistency and power that has always made it popular among bowlers of all styles, and it will do it on the longest and heaviest oil patterns placed before you. The Proton PhysiX shining attribute is the Atomic Core with a super-low RG that helps generate spin. This extremely center-heavy mass gets the ball moving in a dangerous way, providing the ball with added responsiveness and rewarding the player who can roll it with authority. The AstroPhysiX is an excellent option for players who like to swing big and want some extra backend leverage to give their game a boost
