Since there are a lot of storm fanatics here, I figured I'd share this. I saw the reviews pop up on video ball reviews the other day, and today's Storm news post for the world championship mentioned that Rhino Page will be using it.

Looks like quite the oiler.

I saw a release date of January 27, 2010 on brianhalstrom.com He also had the Storm reign of fire on there, which is a solid version of the current reign, didn't see a release date on that one. The Invasion looks like it will be a great ball for heavy oil. stormbowling.com has an informative write up on the new technology of the core and cover. They say its their strongest ball yet. This ball may be where some of my first half league money goes.

The release date is late for christmas but it just might make a good "ground hogs" day gift to myself. I can use something like this for the PBAx league this summer.

I would hope that this new R3X cover holds up better than the R2X that's on the VG. I've had to resurface the VG multiple times because of its soft cover being so susceptible to track wear and battle scars. It will probably end up as a garden decoration or a house ball in another year at this rate.

At first I was surprised to see Was throwing Storm on the show. I thought he was only allowed to use Roto-grip on TV. But since it was the new invasion do you think Roto okayed it?

This is exactly my concern. Although used sparingly, my VG is beaten up, with cuts, scratches and gouges. Looks like a 3 year old ball, yet many I know of have already been put away, and will never reach 2 years. Just had to resurface mine after no more then 50 games. This time I also polished it to see if I can get a few extra feet in length.

That's a good question. Storm owns Roto-Grip, so whether he uses Roto-Grip, or Storm, its good marketing. I asked a friend of mine who's on the regional circuit what the rules were in regards to that. He said its contract specific, I know I saw Steve Jaros throw a Mega Friction even though he's signed to Global. Grant it AMF is the parent company..
