Torrent

Take the Storm Torrent to the lanes and wash out the competition. This bowling ball features the Booster HV (high volume) core which is a larger weight block that provides extra hitting power. The core is made up of a lot of high-density materials that offer consistency as well as forgiveness. The design of this core increases the RG and provides higher flare potential. This ball is covered with Storm's famous R2S coverstock and allows this ball to glide through the front part of the lane and react on the backend. The Torrent bowling ball is finished with a 2000-grit matte finish that gives this ball the ability to dig through the oil on the lanes and give the bowler more control at the backend.

Core: Booster HV Core (14-16)

LANE CONDITION
Now that I have spent a good amount of time with the Torrent, I feel comfortable reviewing it. I have about 540 rpms, 19 mph off my hand, around 3 degrees of tilt, and about 45 degrees of axis rotation. I consider the Torrent to be a slower moderate type ball in terms of response to friction. It isn't the slowest of balls available, but it is far from flippy. More of a gradual sweep off the spot.

COMMENTS

With all this in mind, I wanted to take advantage of the specs without trying to make the ball do something it's not intended to do. Mine is a 5 1/2 inch pin from my PAP with an angle to the VAL of about 70. It tells me what the lanes are doing really well. Usually goes as long as the pattern is when thrown near the track and then allows me to adjut the the pattern as needed. If I'm bowking on something on the shorter medium side, this ball need to be thrown from the outside. If it's a pattern that is longer, my ball needs to be shaping more in the midlane as opposed to downlane. This ball is truly a benchmark. Being more on the rev dominant side, I can use this ball on the fresh without needed more ball than this. Usually, I need to cut my rev rate a little to start straighter on shorter mediums. This ball finds itself at home more so on 39-44 feet. When it's too slow downlane, I usually need to go to something that uses it's energy a bit later (Code Red or Hy-Road Pearl for me). I wouldn't hesitate changing surface to match up with this ball more. I've used surfaces like 1000, 2000, 3000, and 2000 polished. My favoeite surface is closer to 2000. I haven't drilled a Rocketship, but I have drilled multiple IQ Tours. The IQ Tour goes longer for me and shapes better when there is less surface on the ball. Going to an IQ Tour or Code Red after the Rorrent usually allows me to chase the pattern left and gices me a great blueprint on the lanes to see what they're doing.
