BTW - great video, once again, Coach Bauer!



Okay, now you two can resume....



Lol, 10 pin I will tell you this much it wont be your last Storm you buy. The only storm ball I have ever seemed that didnt live up to its hype and maybe because the conditions they were being used on weren't right for it was the Nano pearl. I have the Nano solid and its killer but every bowler I know that has or had the pearl bagged it or sold it, again maybe wrong ball for the conditions. as mentioned above my heat will not die not matter how much I abuse it.

^^Wow, I didnt know I was the only one that hated the Nano Pearl. I didnt like it myself. I even had it plugged and redrilled but still didnt live up to the Hype as its big brother. I felt it was very condition specific and I ended up selling it and got a Vivid instead. Between all of my Storm balls, Nano Pearl, Vivid, Frantic and my trusty old Triple X Factor, the Nano Pearl was the only ball I didnt like. Ive been experimenting with surface changes thx to Joe Bowler, and found that I reeeeally like the 500/1000/2000/4000 + Rough Buff Polish combination.

I haven't gotten much use out of my nano pearl either. I demo'd one at the storm open house around here awhile back, and liked the one I threw. I even had it drilled like a demo ball- pin and mb on grip line. If I bowl at the center where I demo'd it, I'll probably love it, but I'm not bowling there too much. When I throw it well, though, it hits like a truck. Probably just need to get used to it a little.

Just so you all are aware, the Manic review is in its final render stage and should be ready some time tomorrow. I am just wrapping it up now so hopefully I can get it rendered and uploaded no later than tomorrow night.

Ooh yes very anxious on how you like it. If so are you able to throw the Frantic as well, kinda like how you compared the VR, CR and Marvel in the same vid. Since many of us here like the Frantic, and considering the Manic is more like a dull version of it, it would make a great comparo.

The manic video is processing now. I was not able to include the Frantic in the Manic review (It was in the Pro Shop getting work done) but I will include the Manic in my Frantic review so you can see the similarities.

The Frantic is definitely more snappy and gets down the lane further, the Manic reads the mid lane really well though.

I am really surprised how much I am liking this ball. It really reads the lanes well, I had it drilled for Shark but it is really reading most THS patterns well too.

So would you say the Manic should be used first, then when the lanes are breaking down one can use the Frantic since it goes a bit longer?

Correct.

And just so you guys are aware, sorry this is taking longer than expected but I have had problems with the final video twice now. Both times I found errors in the video that I didn't notice originally so I have to re-render.

Just started to render the video out so in two hours it will begin processing through youtube and will be posted up after that finishes.
