Coming June 15th the Intense Fire from Storm Bowling


Ball Review:
Unfortunately, I did not get to try this ball on a pattern that I would typically use it on although here are my thoughts on the upcoming release.
I tested this ball on pretty beat up conditions. There seemed to be a substantial amount of open play before I did this video. I was essentially on significantly dry conditions. It was pretty difficult to find the hold in the middle part of the lane no matter how far left I went on the approach.

I ranged between 25-32 on the approach and threw it to about 7 down lane as my break point. The ball had to be at 7 for my breakpoint otherwise I would see an over/under reaction. This was not the balls fault. It was just not the right environment to be throwing it in.

This is a very strong ball and you can see how continuous it was off the spot. I believe this will be a good ball to blend out those medium to heavier fresh oil conditions when the night begins and the original Intense is too angular and not early enough.

The Intense Fire is storms newest release in the premier line. The Intense Fire uses the same RAD-E core found in the original intense, but is now wrapped around R3S hybrid. This produces a ball that is much sharper off of friction, but still utilizes the core to help read the midlane. I was not a huge fan of the original Intense, but I’m already in love with this ball. When compared to the code red, the Intense Fire is weaker overall but is faster off of friction. The code red is earlier and slower off of friction, therefore producing a rounder shape. I can see myself using the Intense Fire first out of the bag during league, and the transition games during a tournament. Be sure to preorder your own for the June 15th release date! #StormNation

Length: Medium

Volume: Medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

The Intense Fire is the newest release in Storm’s Premier Line of Bowling Balls.  The Intense Fire features the sixth generation RAD-E Core.  Rad-E Core is surrounded by the R3S Hybrid coverstock.  The combination of Core and Coverstock generates generous length with a powerful backend motion.  I was able to throw the Intense and the Intense Fire on a Typical House Shot.  I was surprised by the overall reaction of the Intense Fire.  The Intense Fire picked up earlier in the mid lane because of the R3S Hybrid coverstock and the aggressive (not flippy) backend motion was more than expected. I had a little room when I moved in and kept my angles tight with the Intense Fire.  I could never do that with the Intense because it would squirt to the Friction or would not turn the corner.  As I continued to bowl and conditioner started to move around and break down the Intense Fire really showed its true power.  I could just chase the oil left and keep the friction to the right.  However, the dryer the fronts became the earlier the Intense Fire would start up.  I went to the Intense and moved a little right and right back into my comfort zone.  The layouts that were used on both bowling balls were pin over the fingers with the mass bias kicked out with an extra hole on the mid line.  The measurements are approximate for dual angle people 70 X 5.5 X 45.  My PAP is 5 5/8 over and ¾ up, Rev Rate was 300 and my ball speed is around 15 mph.  If you liked the Intense, the Intense Fire will Light Up Your World!
The Intense Fire is a very good compliment to the Premier Line.  Power and Versatility at your fingertips with the Intense Fire!
