To me Brunswick's stuff just begins to read the lane too early, with my game anyways. I have a lot of issue with it rolling out and I scored really low any time I put one of their pieces in my hand. Other bowlers might be the opposite though and find Storm/Columbia stuff to be too long and too angular.

My guess is, since you are a Storm staffer, that it has been a long time since you have rolled any Brunswick equipment? I don't know exactly when things may have changed, since I had not rolled Brunswick in a long time either, but the VersaMax is a standout ball in terms of length, angularity, and backend. Bowling This Month rated it 7+ degrees of entry angle for Stroker, and even higher for Cranker.

No Storm piece I have seen reviewed comes close to that. Speaking of rollout, nothing tops Storm's Nano Pearl. That ball was lucky to get 6 games of my undivided attention before finding its way to Salvation Army. But, I do love my Storm Natural Pearl. And, I was interested in the Modern Marvel...until I read that it has trouble with carrydown. I have tried other Storm balls (ex: Virtual Energy, Tropical Storm, Polar Ice) and what characterized them the most was not length or angularity, but unpredictability.

Most bowlers would be advised not to get stuck in a one brand only rut. Unless you are getting paid to roll a certain brand, why not choose the best of breed for each ball in your arsenal? Unless the new Brunwick Nexxxus somehow tops the VersaMax, I expect it to be a Ball of the Year candidate. I can hardly wait to roll it next season, and look forward to setting a new Virtual League average record here with it. wink
