The Nova has taken a leap further into space than any ball before. Its revolutionary core has been paired with an innovative combination of coverstock technology to maintain the striking power you’ve come to expect from a Premier Line ball. So, while maintaining the aesthetic that the Premier line is known for, we’ve also brought the performance up another level.

BE SUPER LIKE A NOVA
Weight blocks like the Ignition Core rev up fast and finish strong with a more aggressive movement down lane. Need some extra oomph? Then look no further. The Ignition Core pumps out more than 6” of loaded flare potential! That’s more than enough differential to amp your adrenaline levels. Putting it in R2X means all that power and be harnessed with skilled precision. R2X fits seamlessly between the R2S™ and NRG™ formulas found on some of the most successful Storm balls in recent history. At an ideal 3000-grit finish, the perfect combination of length and strength can be achieved.
THE UNIVERSE IS CALLING
Slightly more aggressive than the famed R2S coverstock material, the R2X is right in the middle of Storm’s reactivity chart. It is the perfect balance of porosity and durably. It doesn’t grab too early, but doesn’t go too long either. Its versatility can benefit numerous bowlers of various styles.

This first addition in a world wide release has been a huge success. For those that like ball motion similar to the 900 Global Reality and the Storm Proton Physix are really enjoying the Nova which overall hooks slightly less than the ^ balls. For my video I went with the box finish, which for most will work extremely well. One recommendation I share for slower ball speeds such as myself is hitting solids with a 4K or 5K abralon pad on a spinner to gain a touch of extra length through the front part of the lane. Also, you can allow the ball to lane shine slightly which after a few games, you'll notice a little extra length out of most solid coverstocks. This ball is what I would call a more tame version of a "hook monster" with great control and will allow more opportunity to open the lanes a bit before jumping into another ball. In regards to transition, I really enjoyed the 900 Global Volatility, but once the lanes changed I had to jump out of that ball very quickly. The Nova definitely allows more forgiveness for a bigger ball in the arsenal. Be sure to try out a Storm Nova and fill that gap for fresh league and heavier volume tournament patterns. I'm definitely excited to use the Nova more in tournament competion. Please be sure to visit your favorite pro shop today! Michael Slatky 900 Global Staff Member York, PA
