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 Im 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
