Storm needs to cut the BS and re-release Lights Out.

Interesting the match up black pearl has been on the usbc approved list since March but the intense fire was just added on the 8th

There's no rhyme or reason anymore, they make sure it's not predicable now.

I don't think I understand this Intense Fire release, they already had this ball on the market in the Roto Grip Hyper Cell Fused. The original Intense and HCF both worked perfect with each other.

The bowling ball industry is mainly throwing darts at the high performance trash can instead of giving consumers what they want in the Ride, Lights Out, Hectic, and others

I don't think they're going to be very similar.  I think the Fused is going to be more aggressive and more angular, I think the Fire is going to be like a stronger Code Red.

On the website now.

I was on the Storm website looking at the layout for ideas and there was the Intense Fire and Match Up Black Pearl with the Sure Lock still there.

Guess the Fire just follows the path of the Code Black and Red. I dont know what RS3 Hybrid is, like 2 parts Solid 1 Part pearl or a 50/50 split.  If it was the same as the Hypercell Fused cover or even stronger then it has my attention.

The Black Pearl looks interesting like Pirates of the Carriibean, the Black pearl must always have a captain. Arrrr...  We can all have our own black pearl now.

Hmm, Ive got my eyes on the Surelock now but Fire sounds like the cure for extreme high volume patterns.
I have 22 bowling balls at the moment, mostly Motiv, Storm/Rotogrip

From what I'm reading, the R3S Hybrid cover is strong and smooth, probably not quite as fast off friction as the cover on the Hyper Cell Fused.

I dont get releasing the black pearl without a cover change. Same cover, different color, and surface. Hells fire take a 2000 pad to the current ball and you have basically the same damn thing.

I am not on staff and me and Storm has an love and hate relationship sometimes I hate their balls some I love I just think they are trying to give the coustomer an different color to chose from in this case. Tropical Breeze Hybrid and  the Vertigo, Jolt Pearl, Trauma Recovery, Depth Charge are some of my favorites but other than that I do not match up well with them it's not their fault just something that happens at times.

In hindsight, I do remember using the Intense and wishing it had a little solid in the cover and that it responded to friction a little faster.  And I do prefer the Fused over the Intense at this moment. But things change over time so Ill give the Intense another try and see how it goes.

Now Im comparing the Fire to the Surelock thinking they might be on the same level.
But Ill wait and read what others say first after its released.
