The Storm Bolt doesn’t just identify a Storm bowling ball. It represents over three decades of tradition, a commitment to quality, and a promise to always roll better than ever before. The covers are robust. The cores are exact. Because when the scores add up, the thrill of sending all ten back tells you that it’s worth it.

SMARTLY DESIGNED INVERTED FE² TECHNOLOGY
Every Hy-Road™ is the result of master engineering and precise workmanship, all hand-built from start to finish. They are the foundation of the entire Storm bowling experience.This jewel of an engine generates more torque down lane than any ball in production. A technical tour de force, the Inverted Fe2 weight block has historically had a higher RG orientation. The higher the RG, the more resistant the ball will be to changing direction as it travels down the lane. This promotes a cleaner shape through the front part of the lane with a later transition down lane. This compact powerplant of a weight block utilizes more coverstock material. The result? More efficient power transfer to the pins at the point of impact.
HE ROAD GOES ON!
However, power means nothing if it isn’t properly harnessed. A qualified beast, ReX gave some impressive results during testing. Traditionally, the term “hybrid” suggests that both solid and pearl components coexist within a coverstock. When we joined R2S™ with NeX™ in the lab, the results exceeded our expectations. In our testing, we discovered that the Night Road read the midlane sooner than the Hy-Road Pearl thanks to its NeX foundation but produced similar backend and entry angle numbers because the chemical porosity of R2S is slightly denser than NeX. This provides the optimum response time to friction that impresses anyone who encounters it, whether you’re rolling it or watching it being rolled. The result is a ball that turns heads as well as it turns the corner.

Storm Night Road Coverstock: ReX Pearl Reactive Finish: 4K Fast Core: Inverted Fe² Technology RG: 2.57 Differential: 0.046 Layout: 4 3/4 x 4 x4 - 2LS Tester: PAP 6 1/2 R, 1 1/4 D Review: The Night Road features the newer 4K Fast coverstock. This coverstock as you would expect will read a tad sooner than previous pearl offerings. You will be thoroughly impressed with what the Night Road offers in terms of length down the lane and control off the spot. For my review I compared the Night Road to the Hy-Road Max. For me, the Night Road has a much larger window of use than the Hy-Road Max. The Night Road is most impressive through the hook phase. The 4K Fast finish is clearly a homerun on this offering. Unfortunately, the Hy-Road Max cover/core combination did not seem to be a great match. The cover was a tad strong for me and a bit to lazy off the pattern. The Night Road upgrade definitely matches the cover/core much better. Storm has really upgraded the middle of the arsenal with the Night Road. For me, the 4K Fast finish is more complimentary compared to the Hy-Road Max NeX cover due to my slower ball speed as a thumbless player. The Night Road gets through the front part of the lane much easier and the shape down lane allows me to be more open with my angles. The Hy-Road Max, until I shinned it up a bit, was a bit early for me on a few patterns and had limited use in my bag for the majority of lane surfaces I bowl on. For the video review I tested the Night Road on a typical THS shot. After a few shots the Night Road really found its groove on a THS pattern. The Night Road is very easy to read and a great transition ball as you step down in the bag. I recommend the Night Road for the player looking for an edge on league transition and desiring a ball to continue with the transition as it occurs. I'm definitely excited for this ball from Storm.
