This video is a battle between two GREAT pearl bowling balls from Storm! The Phaze 4 and the Spectre!
How does the new Storm Spectre bowling ball stack up against the Storm Phaze 4?
Storm Spectre Bowling Ball
There is a certain level of expectation that comes with drilling up a new Storm bowling ball. You expect it to have rich, vibrant colors and a pleasant fragrance. You expect it to ignore the heads which often gets worn and dry, especially late in the day. You expect it to turn the corner and charge aggressively through the pocket. You expect it to carry the corner pins, and everything else for that matter. But if you think your expectations are high, you should see ours. Know that each Storm bowling ball is a result from decades of smart design and continuous innovation. From the moment you drill up a Storm ball, you are sure to feel the power inside.
The cutting-edge Vector Core
The cutting-edge Vector Core was designed to be used by the most scrutinous competitor. The mid-range RG should appeal to those who are fans of the ever-popular Hy-Road™ and Trend™ series but crave something in between. With roots tracing back to the Incite™, there’s extra post-drilled asymmetry built into the Vector Core if the driller chooses to use it, a feature unique to this design of symmetric core. If you don’t use a thumb, be sure to utilize the all-new and innovative 2LS™ system for no-thumb players to layout your striking new Spectre.
The development of the next installment of the Thunder™ Line franchise was always going to be a tricky balance – long-awaited fan fulfillment versus something genuinely fresh. The 1500-grit polished R3S coverstock gives you the control needed to attack each shot with confidence, knowing that you’re going to get just enough skid to push through the front part of the lane cleanly without sacrificing the traction needed to control the midlane and break point. Oh, and let’s not forget about the icing on the cake – candy cane cookie – the fragrance that makes the Spectre smell as good as it looks and rolls!

Storm Phaze 4 Bowling Ball
Can you feel it? That’s power. Pure, unchecked tournament-winning power. Combining proven technologies, the Phaze 4 is an alchemy of components that will provide nothing but soaring scores. Every ball has the general desire to imagine itself as the start of something entirely new, unbeholden to what has come before. When the salt settles, we’re left with neither triumph nor tragedy. Instead, it’s one more chapter in the continuing saga, punctuated by a moment of genuine awe. One of those moments is right now.
This low RG gem has a strong heart. Being one of the most aggressive symmetrical balls ever devised, your shots become more comfortable so you can bowl with effortless focus on your shot quality. The Velocity Core is designed to help you play at pace with more revs, power and control, for true consistency. There is a reason this construction has turned into the go-to chassis for professionals around the world.
The Phaze series’ aggressive nature has carried over to the Phaze 4. This time, it focuses its power on the backend, where it matters most. R2S Pearl is the missing ingredient Storm Nation has been craving for years. You spoke. We listened. Wow the crowd at the stock 1500-grit polished finish or take control and matte it down to your desired ideal texture. Either way, R2S responds supremely well to adjustments.
