Chris Beans compares the PROTON PHYSIX vs the SUPER NOVA from STORM BOWLING!
Storm Super Nova Bowling Ball
The Super Nova is extraordinary by design. Showcasing the new and dynamically intense Ignition Core, the Super Nova features a tour-inspired design that enables better versatility on a wider array of oil patterns. Weight blocks like the Ignition Core rev up fast and finish strong with a more aggressive movement down lane. Need some extra oomph? Then look no further. The Ignition Core pumps out more than 6” of loaded flare potential! That’s more than enough differential to amp your adrenaline levels.

The Ignition Core pumps out more than 6” of loaded flare potential! That’s more than enough differential to amp your adrenaline levels. NRG™ has become a staple in Storm’s lineup of coverstocks for nearly a decade. It’s due time for an upgrade! NeX (Nano Extreme) is Storm’s earliest reading cover to date. NeX Solid was remarkably earlier hooking than NRG on any pattern, or any surface we tested it on. Our standardized durability and longevity tests showed NeX created 11% more entry angle and 9.6% more overall hook after 50 shots compared to a fresh NRG cover. Simply put, NeX gives more midlane read than ever WITHOUT sacrificing any backend! Wow.

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
With extreme amounts of power and dynamics, the Storm Proton PhysiX almost feels like cheating.
