The Storm Hy-Road Solid is another one of Storm’s new high performance bowling balls for the 2014 – 2015 season.
One of the greatest balls on earth just got stronger… the Storm Hy-Road Solid!
With major victories ranging from the PBA tour to international championships, the Hy-Road has won the world over. In fact, the original Hy-Road celebrated its fifth anniversary late last year and is still going strong!
Bowlers love the shape of this weight block; the proof is evident in the overwhelming demand from touring professionals to recreational players alike! And while the original Hy-Road is often a great choice for a wide variety of players on different lane conditions, at times we all need a little more hook and motion out of our arsenals.
That’s why Storm is introducing the new Hy-Road Solid. You will get that same cherished motion as the original version but with more traction in the midlane, just what you need when bowling on heavier oil conditions.
As you might recall, the number one factor of ball motion is coverstock. So, to expand our Thunder Line with the same great characteristics of the famed Road series, we called upon the proven R2S solid reactive shell for its uncompromised performance.
They even prepared this aggressive shell with a 2000-pad to really give it some teeth to dig deep into the heavy oil. Why did they do this? Because they know how frustrating heavy oil can be.
And don’t sweat having to decide how to drill your new Hy-Road Solid. You can use your favorite layout with confidence (or let Storm’s Vector Layout System find the right one for your style of play) as the dynamic Inverted Fe Technology weight block is one of the finest. Part of what makes this special is the thicker shell which transfers more energy to the pins at impact. More energy means more strikes, and more strikes leads to higher scores.
Storm Hy-Road Solid
gave us a shorter slide through the heads along with a long and smooth transition to hook in the mid-lane. In addition, to a smooth motion on the back part of the lane… Briefly we had smooth and even transitions with this ball all though the ball did tend to lay back in the roll phase… We felt this to be a very good smooth control type solid reactive bowling ball that would work well in medium heavy to heavy oil volumes.. This was a very good bowling ball oilier or longer patterns… The ball will need some oil to perform as designed… We used 6 x 4 1/4 x 3 drilling layout, and the out of box surface finish, and bowled on a 39ft house pattern in testing this ball…
The good part about the Storm Hy-Road Solid was it was very smooth and controllable. In addition, to it’s even transitions… We really enjoyed the hook and set reaction hit we got with this ball.. We felt this would be a good ball for medium to heavy house patterns or when a stronger bowling ball motion is desired. The bad part about Storm Hy-Road Solid it did burn out after the shot broke down but it was not made for drier lane conditions, in other words the ball needs oil to react as designed…
The New Storm Hy-Road Solid was a good solid ball for on heavier lane conditions… We really enjoyed this bowling ball and found it to be very smooth and controllable… You can get more details about this ball in the links below this post.
