Storm Revenant & Absolute | Winter Releases! | 2023 Starts With A Boom! | Spectre Replacement!

Chris Beans shares breaking news on the newest announcements from STORM, the ABSOLUTE and the REVENANT! Full specs and commentary! URD JAN 20, 2023!

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.

Storm Revenant 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.

It’s risen. R3S Pearl is together anew with the Vector Core, but with a fresh veneer and more reaction where it matters most: at the pins. Reacta Gloss is cutting-edge when it comes to surfaces. Using an all-new polishing agent, Reacta Gloss maintains its profile longer and more consistently than any previous Storm polished finish before it. Go ahead. Grip it. You’ll immediately feel a difference to the touch. The Vector Core has some extra post-drilled asymmetry built into it if the driller chooses to use it, a feature unique to this design of symmetric core. 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.

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 their new ball.

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.

    I’m trying to get back into bowling. I like what I see in the the absolute bowling ball, but I see it is asymmetric. I heard that people with slow speed(my speed is between 12-13.5) should not get asymmetric bowling balls. Is that true? And why is it or not true

    I have both symmetric and asymmetric balls and throw around 13.5-14. I came back after 35 years off and have thrown more 200 with the asymmetric balls. I will be getting the Absolute before too long. I don’t think you’ll have any issue. The difference is that it will have more of a hockey stick shaped roll…clean through the front and strong coming out of the oil. I would encourage you to get one personally.
