Luke Rosdahl Rated Rumble: Storm Trend VS Storm Hyroad Pearl Bowling Ball

How does the storm trend compare to the Storm hyroad pearl

My Rated series was designed to give you the ability to compare any ball vs any other ball, but I still receive a lot of questions about specific comparisons, so rather than making you dig around in the playlist, I’ve decided to combine several of the most popular or requested comparisons into single videos! If you have a comparison you want to see, put it in the comments and I’ll make it happen!

Storm Trend Bowling Ball Ratings For Hook, Length and Backend

The Trend features the famed R2S Pearl coverstock we’ve seen on balls like the IQ Tour Pearl, Hyroad Pearl, IQ Emerald, and Astro PhysiX paired with the symmetric Piston core from the Pro Motion.  R2S Pearl is popular because of its unique blend of friction response or quickness with a higher amount of control than you usually see out of shiny quicker response covers.  The Piston core from the Pro Motion is a little higher RG at 2.52 and lower differential at .049 in 15 pounds than typical bigger symmetrics, but it still revs and rolls strongly and is very naturally continuous.  The combination to me feels like a stronger IQ Emerald type reaction, both on the lane and on the backend.  The RG is a little higher, but the differential is quite a bit higher which will make the Trend flare more and create a more dynamic shape down lane and a bit more strength.  With 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give the Trend a 6 for hook, a 7 for length, and a 7 for backend. The closest ball in hook is the Idol Pearl, the closest in length is the Astro PhysiX, and the closest in backend is the original Hyroad.  Select the next comparison you’d like to see from the links on the screen, or scroll down to the description to find links to other choices.  

Storm Hyroad Pearl Bowling Ball Ratings For Hook, Length and Backend

The Hyroad Pearl features the famed R2S Pearl coverstock and symmetric inverted FE2 core.  R2S Pearl is popular because of its unique blend of friction response or quickness with a higher amount of control than you usually see out of shiny quicker response covers, and we’ve seen it most recently on balls like the Trend, IQ Emerald, and Astro PhysiX  The inverted FE2 core comes in at a 2.57 RG and an .046 differential in 15 pounds.  It breezes down the lane with the higher RG, but the higher differential is there to help it pick up and drive down lane.  The Hyroad Pearl is a burn and late block killer.  Belmo used it to great success at the 2019 world series of bowling, Brad Miller has used it quite a bit lately, and I’ve used it a ton myself.  The ability to clear the heads easily when the lanes start getting beat up and give you a clean and predictable motion from deeper angles is unequalled.  With 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give the Hyroad Pearl a 4 on hook potential, an 8 on length, and an 8 on backend.  It compares the closest to the Electrify Pearl on hook potential, the Hyroad in length, and the Astro PhysiX in backend strength.  Select the next comparison you’d like to see from the links on the screen, or scroll down to the description to find links to other choices.  Thanks for watching and may the strikes be with you.

The latest collaboration with Jason Belmonte and Storm present the new Storm Trend bowling ball, part of Storm Bowling’s High Performance Signature line of bowling balls.

Benjamin Franklin’s famously quoted in 1789 that “there are no sure things in life other than death and taxes,” but he forgot a third guarantee in life—that in our sport, more entry angle leads to a wider pocket! And if you have been using Storm for a number of years, then you know that feeling you get when you leak the ball a little more to the outside than others on your pair and still get it to come back to the pocket! You know that feeling, and it’s a good one! It’s how tournaments are won.

  • Color: Aqua/Sapphire/Teal
  • Coverstock: R2S Pearl Reactive
  • Weight Block: Piston Core

  • Flare Potential: High
  • Radius of Gyration (RG): 15lbs – 2.52
  • Differential (Diff): 15lbs – 0.049

To showcase the backend potential, we selected several variations of the Reactor family of coverstocks as they are the most responsive in the industry. As we worked through testing, it was clear that R2S was the best option for this bowling ball. “You want better carry? Then you need angle into the pocket. The Trend is what you have been waiting for,” says Jason Belmonte. And no matter what your rev rate or how many hands you use to bowl, the Trend will give you a quicker response, more defined breakpoint, just what you need to carry better.

The number one factor of ball motion is?coverstock. Just one shot with the new Hy-Road Pearl and you?ll see the difference. The R2S??pearl reactive shell floats easily through the front, maintaining ball speed as much as possible, waiting to really cut loose on the backends!

Matching the?core?to the?coverstock?is equally important, though. That is why the same Inverted Fe???Technologyweight block?will be carried over into the new Hy-Road Pearl. Pairing the R2S Pearl reactive?coverstock?with the dynamic Fe??weight block?ensures that your favorite layouts in your previous Road series balls will be just as effective in the new Hy-Road Pearl. You see, Storm recognizes your needs as a bowler because we, too, are bowlers! And just like you, we want every advantage on the lanes that we can get.

Don?t forget that the thicker shell of the Hy-Road series makes a difference, too. The amount of energy transferred to the pins at impact is greater, translating to unmatched power at the pocket. It?s part of what makes the Hy-Road one of the most special balls in the history of bowling.
