Chris Beans shares breaking info on the new STORM ABSOLUTE, the newest asymmetric hybrid bowling ball from STORM bowling! Full specs and BALL MOTION VIDEO!!!
Storm Absolute Bowling Ball
In most cases, an extra slug, or weighted disk, is needed to create enhanced dynamics, but the evenly weighted masses at both ends of the Sentinel Core upgrades this effect more than a single slug ever could. This ensures the Absolute will change direction and continue through the pins better and more consistently. This is the first single-density asymmetric core in the Storm line since the Lucid. The R&D team has also reduced the amount of weight block mass near the area where the thumb hole is typically placed.
The inward angled edges increase the intermediate differential prior to drilling and allows the dynamic integrity to be preserved after drilling because the thumb hole misses the weight block. The extra intermediate differential makes the Absolute respond to friction on the lane more effectively and won’t miss the spot.
Tim Mack: I have been able to see this ball go down the lane more. My initial message to you was that this would be a great over/under ball. After seeing many styles of men and women bowling with this ball, I clearly underestimated the strength and power of this ball. It was really strong front to back and also side to side on multiple oil patterns. It never missed the breakpoint and had a much stronger backend reaction than I first thought. We will continue to evaluate balls and the motions we see.
