Here is my review of the Storm Crux, enjoy!

http://youtu.be/bmnJGA-4WOU



Lane Conditions: Medium-Heavy Oil
Typical Conditions: Variety of Shots
Type of Lane: All Synthetic
What part of the lane did you play? Third Arrow
Weight of bowling ball: 15
Surface of bowling ball: Factory/Box
What grit was the surface of the ball? 3000
Likes: - Versatile - Conserves energy well for an aggressive ball - Blends the pattern well
Dislikes:

The Storm Crux is the latest release in Storm's Premiere Line and they definitely hit a home run with this ball. The all new Catalyst core allows the design intent of the ball to remain intact after drilling because it has a unique pocket in the core which keeps the thumb hole from taking out a large chunk of the weight block. Pairing the innovative core with the ERG Hybrid coverstock, the first hybrid coverstock in the Premiere Line since the Virtual Energy, was a great choice and allows the bowler to adapt the ball to the conditions they see most often qucikly and easily.

The first thing I noticed with this ball was how much the drilling angles and surface changes modified the shape of the ball motion, which makes this ball very versatile out on the lanes. Because the core didn't get modified with drilling it also allowed the migration paths (flare rings) to be more consistent, even on shots that I didn't get my hand into quite the position I wanted to.

Putting a 1000 grit pad to one of my Crux as a test made this ball really stand out against even the most aggressive equipment on the market. I had to take a big (6-3 move) step to the left in order to keep the ball on line in comparing it to the box condition. This was something I loved with the ball, I could modify it right before a block to get exactly the reaction I was looking for.

I would definitely recommend getting a Crux in your bag, I have three of them in mine and am not disappointed in any of them! If you would like more information on the Storm Crux feel free to check out my video ball review on my YouTube Channel (sk8sbowlingreviews).
