Storm Match Up and Match Up Pearl Bowling Ball Review

These Balls Match Up… First Impressions It has been a long time since I found a Storm ball that is “lower end” that actually plays the way I want it to, an actual “ball down”. The Match Up Pearl is really a ball down and that’s a great thing in my book. The Match Up […]

Storm Code Red Bowling Ball Review

Storm has the Code…again First Impressions I like the Code Red more than the Code Black. It’s smoother overall and while the Code Black was the prototypical Storm skid/flip motion, this one is much closer to the smoothness of the HyRoad.

Storm Snap Lock Bowling Ball Review

The New Lock Definitely Snaps… First Impressions The Snap Lock looks like the real deal in terms of being a really strong ball. Man does this thing move and cover some boards. I can see why Storm released this ball stateside. Our Testers: Sean Jensen RPM: 400 rpm PAP: 5 & 1/2 up Axis tilt: […]

Storm Match and Match Pearl Bowling Ball Review

The Storm Match and Match Pearl are on Fire… First Impressions It’s hard to imagine these balls would do what they do but the Storm Match and Match Pearl roll so strong they almost seem like they are strong asymmetrical balls!
