    BALL REACTION
    Was very clean through the heads and had a smooth breakpoint. Good continuation through the pins. Could use just a little surface tweak for the fresh pattern and on carrydown.
    If you pulled the ball, it would hold the line real well. If you leaked it out, it could come back if you have the turn on it.

    Not a heavy oil ball, better for mediums and dryer patterns, This was similar to my Columbia Dr.Jekyll.

    I have never thrown a Storm ball but I would like to. It is good to see some good reviews like this one.

      Update: I have just purchased a Storm ThunderStruck Pearl. I hope it works as good as advertised.

            Update: I got the ball drilled and used it tonight in league. I did not like the reaction out of the box. I took it to my pro and had him hit it with 2000 abralon and the ball was amazing. I finished the first game with 176, second game of 199 and final game of 260. This ball hits hard as hell and carries like no ball I have ever thrown. Im sure after I get a little more used to it this ball will help me post some big scores.
