In this video we go over the controversial topic that is Urethane bowling balls. This topic seems to be 50/50 but I am on the side of Urethane being a staple in the bag! Let me know what you guys think on this topic!
storm fast pitch bowling ball
Balls in the urethane classification can be sensitive to the weight blocks put inside them. The perfect position of the RG, the proper amount of differential, symmetric vs asymmetric – these all play a vital role in the motion in this type of ball. Dialing in the precise measure of each was no easy feat, but we were up to the challenge. Urethanes are meant to bring back the breakpoint to control shorter patterns. But when the RG is too low, the end result is simply too much of a good thing. The higher RG, medium differential Tour Block weight block keeps the Fast Pitch reading the lane exactly where its needed.
Controll XL is making its debut on the Fast Pitch, bringing the performance characteristics between the Pitch Black™ and the Pitch Purple™. The Pitch Black reigns supreme as the hook/set type of reaction with the Pitch Purple being the cleaner and more angular option. The Fast Pitch blends the line between early read and entry angle making it the most versatile Pitch series ball to date.
