Storm Timeless: Bowling Ball Review, Video and More!

Storm Timeless Ball Review

The Storm Timeless was clean and had a shorter skid through the head area of the lane with a medium transition in the mid-lane in addition to, an angular shape ball motion, it had more even transitions in all three zones than we expected. Worked well on medium to heavy oil patterns or the tougher sport shots, the Storm Timeless had very good continuation and a strong hit. The Time was about 5 boards stronger than the Code Black, and cleaner than the Snap Lock, we felt the Storm Timeless would be best used as the perfect fit for when your high-end benchmark ball, like the Phaze II or Haywire, burn out or after the first game when the shot opens up. The Storm Timeless would be best used playing a medium line on medium heavy oil. As well as an inside line on lighter patterns or after the shot breaks down. Conclusion: The Storm Timeless was able to hit the pocket on the fresh even when some shots got right of target. This ball is a good strong bowling and great if you need some hook and continuation through the pins!

Storm Timeless Decription

Description: Storm and Jason Belmonte have teamed up to create a ball reaction for the ages in the Storm Timeless.

Belmo came to Storm and told him of his desire to create a specific ball reaction based off of his time on the PBA tour and bowling in international events. The mindset was to create a ball motion that has never been seen before. The result was the Timeless.

Introducing the new Dual-Drive symmetric core, which features a high RG and high differential for maximum energy retention and backend reaction. This is a totally unique core shape that is different from anything Storm has ever done, and is the reason that this ball has such a different ball reaction.

Storm wanted to cover this core with the same coverstock from Belmo’s favorite ball, the Hy-Road. The Hy-Road used the R2S Hybrid Reactive coverstock, finished at 1500 Grit Polished, and so does the Timeless. This is a ball that is designed for every bowler, no matter the style.

Storm Timeless – Bowling Ball Review

Bowling Ball Reviews: Track Mako

The Track Mako gave us a shorter skid through the head area of the lane with a longer and smoother transition in the mid-lane and an angular shape bowling ball motion, it had even transitions in all three zone. Worked well on heavier oil patterns, with very good continuation with a strong hit. We felt the Track Mako would be best used as a first game ball on medium heavy and long patterns. We put this in the controlled motion type bowling ball. A good ball for playing a medium line on fresh medium heavy patterns and direct line on heavier lane conditions and a good complement for the original Paradox. You will need some oil for this ball to work at peak performance of this bowling ball. Conclusion: The Track Mako was able to hit the pocket on the fresh even when some shots got right of where we wanted. This ball is great if you need some hook and continuation through the pins!

Description: The new Mako core follows in the footsteps of the Paradox by offering Track’s 2nd dual density core design. The dual densities allow the designers to create a more exact ball reaction. Low RG and High Differential for max response in oil.

The QR-10 Solid is the strongest coverstock in the Track lineup, offering amazing traction in oil. With this cover/core combination, you will see a ball that reads the lane through the oil which creates proper angle and strong, smooth continuation through the pins.

The Track Mako Features: Brand: Track – Perfect Scale: 232.9 – RG: 2.48 – Finish: Matte – Ball Color: Blue/Purple/Black – Lane Condition: Heavy – Bowling Ball Coverstock: Solid Reactive – Ball Quality: First Quality – Ball Warranty: 1 Year – Factory Finish: 500/2000 Abralon – Breakpoint Shape: Strong Overall Hook Coverstock Name: QR-10 Solid – Core Name: Mako – Differential: 0.053 – Flare Potential: High Mass Bias – Diff: 0.014 – Core Type: Asymmetric – Performance: Pro Performance[10] – Release Date: 01/24/2017

Bowling Ball Reviews: Hammer Gauntlet

Hammer Gauntlet, Bowling Ball Reviews, Hammer Bowling Ball Reviews

The Hammer Gauntlet gave us a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the Gauntlet has a more arcing/angular motion and revs up in the back-end, we found the Gauntlet to be a smoother type ball motion and had very good continuation. We felt the Gauntlet would be best used as a first game ball on medium to heavier and longer lane patterns. A good bowling ball for playing a medium line on medium oil or direct line on heavy oil patterns. We put this in the controlled motion type bowling ball motion. You will need some oil but don’t have to be flooded for peak performance of this bowling ball. A strong ball from Hammer.

Description: Returning is the extremely strong Semtex CFI coverstock from the Scandal, only this time we’ve used a hybrid version. This is the strongest cover in Hammer’s history. Heavy oil is no match.However, this time we didn’t try to tame the reaction with a symmetric core. The new Gauntlet Asymmetric core was designed to maximize hook and continuation on heavy oil. The Gauntlet will have more overall hook and more angularity than the Scandal.

Specs: RG: 2.51 – Finish: Matte – Ball Color: Orange/Black/Silver – Lane Condition: Heavy – Coverstock: Hybrid Reactive – Ball Quality: First Quality – Ball Warranty: 3 Year – Factory Finish: 500/2000 Abralon – Breakpoint Shape: Aggressive Mid-lane & Backend – Coverstock Name: Semtex Hybrid CFI – Core Name: Gauntlet – Differential: 0.050 – Flare Potential: Medium-High – Mass Bias Diff: 0.012 – Core Type: Asymmetric – Performance: Pro Performance[10] – Bowling Ball Release

The Hammer Rebel Solid gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the Hammer Rebel Solid has a little hook and set type ball motion even though it was angular, the rebel solid was smoother then the original rebel this do to the solid cover-stock rather than pearl and a good compliment. The Rebel Solid would be best used on heavier medium to longer lane patterns and good for blending out the wet/dry and offering control in the backends and it a a good upper mid price point bowling ball. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Description: The new Rebel Core uses technology designed to create extra revs for bowlers, increasing ball reaction. The low RH and medium-high differential allows the ball to read the midlane and pick up a strong roll. The NBT Solid overstock finished to a 500/2000 Abralon Matte surface bites hard and delivers strong overall hook on Medium to Heavy Oil.

Hammer Phobia: Bowling Ball Review
The Hammer Phobia gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads with a shorter transition in the mid-lane, the phobia has a more angular motion and a more controlled reaction, this do to the symmetric core. has a nice motion and good compliment to the Hammer Dark Legend. The Phobia would be best used on medium heavy oil patterns or as a second game ball after the shot opens up. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Description: The powerful Semtex Pearl coverstock provides a powerful skid/snap reaction on medium to heavy oil conditions. Polished to a 500/1000 Abralon w/Powerhouse Factory Finish Polish finish, the Phobia skids easily through the heads for a devastating and fearsome backend. Combined with the new Phobia core which conjures the power and performance of the Gas Mask Asymmetric in a new Symmetric option, joins a medium RG and high differential rating to give this ball length with a volatile reaction.

The hammer scandal pearl gets down the lane with a longer skid through the heads and sharp motion through the pins. It has more mid-lane and overall roll than the average pearl. Good ball for all types of bowlers from strokers to crankers. In addition, the Scandal Is a good ball on the heavier medium to heavy lane patterns. The great thing about this strong rolling ball is you can keep moving left and the ball does not stop moving toward the pocket. A good complement the original Scandal when it’s too much and burns out. You will need drier back-ends for peak performance of this bowling ball.

Ebonite Maverick: Bowling Ball Review
TThe Maverick is a great compliment for the Columbia Tyrant. As the games go on and the Tyrant is becoming to much. We switched to the Ebonite Maverick for a foot or two of extra length and a ton of controllable bowling ball motion down lane. On the fresh the Maverick will turn over a bit, we recommend adjusting the surface with a 3000 abralon pad to allow it to pick up just a bit sooner. This way the shape will be even more controllable in the beginning of the night…

Description: The Maverick takes the amazing Warrior asymmetric core and modifies it to create more backend hook. The high differential will create extra flare which aides in providing outstanding continuation.

Pair this with the GB 14.0 Solid reactive coverstock, finished at 500/2000 Abralon, and you’ve got a ball that will create traction in the heaviest of oil.
