Storm Hy-road Pearl Review


hyroad_pearl_rgb__46674.1369253021.1280.1280Performance Review-

Here is my review for the new release in Storm‘s world famous Thunder Line, the Hy-road Pearl. I don’t even know where to start here. This is a one of a kind type ball for me that I could not wait to get my hands on. Simply put, this ball mirrors the reaction of one of my all time favorite balls, the T Add Mediahunder Road Pearl. Pure amazingness :-)

I drilled this beast up 4.5 x 4.5 putting the pin above my ring finger. I threw it in league the first time and I used it with 3 shots into warm-ups; I ran down to my wife’s pair with a big huge smile on my face like a kid on Christmas morning to tell her what I saw. This ball gave me the easiest length thru the heads, yet picked up in the mid-lane before making a massive move off the friction. I have never been so excited watching my ball roll. I could probably write a new blog every week about how good this ball rolls. Storm hit it huge with this ball. It wouldn’t shock me if the Hy-road Pearl sticks around and rivals the sales of the AWESOME Hy-road. I’m gonna give it 10/10 for reaction. I am tempted to rate it higher and add some bonus points :-D

Shelf Appeal Review-

Shelf appeal on this ball is just about as good as the way it reacts. I love the blend of pearl blue and purple colors, the smell, the labels…all of it. I’ll go with 9/10 for shelf appeal.Hy_Road_Core__33604.1369253020.1280.1280

  1. I see that the differential drops off quite a bit on the 14lb Hy-Roads. Can you tell me what to expect with the 14 lb Hy-Road pearl?
