After seeing the TeamHiSP video of the Storm Drive, I know for a fact that I won't ever buy that one.  It is the most hideous looking ball that Storm has ever produced.  That is one UGLY ball.  LOL.

I see your Drive and raise you the Trauma Recovery and Hot Wire . . and they both knocked down a lot of pins for me, so as long as there's still an X on the board up there, it can be as ugly as it wants to be!

How much different is the drive from the code red? The CR for me seems like you have to play a more direct angel when I start to move farther left it looks like its going to come back then doesn't and I have a pretty high rev rate

The storm Drive is the second ball in collaboration with Jason Belmonte in the signature line. The Drive features the same dual drive core found in the timeless, but is now wrapped in the R2S Nano cover. This provides the Drive with a greater amount of traction in the middle lane, while still having the ability to retain the most amount of energy through the pin deck. I see the Drive as fitting perfectly between the Sure Lock and Phaze ll, and the first ball out of the bag on tougher conditions. The Drive will also be a great option for lower rev rate or speed dominate players that want to see more overall motion out of a ball. Be sure to head over to your local pro shop and get your pre-order in for the February 9 release date! #StormNation

Ouch looks like BTM didn't think too highly of this ball at least with factory surface.  Still did same thing to Black Quantum which is a pretty decent ball and my experience with it doesn't match their numbers at all so bag of salt as usual.

So the ball is out now. Is it worth getting or most of you'll are trashing it like the Timeless. If you like it, how is your ball punch

I texted a staffer, "How do you like the Drive?" and he responded with the Crying Jordan.

It's still condition specific and not for everyone just like the Timeless.  It IS however better than the Timeless and will be the first ball in my bag for Nationals in July.  If it doesn't crack sitting on the rack in the basement between now and then. 

I'm serious on the Nationals thing though and for big rev collegiate bowlers, lots of better looks on a house shot though, barring a few outliers here and there.

I'll be completely honest...wasn't sold on the price or the ball but then I had a demo day on Saturday and this ended up being my favorite of all the balls there...didn't buy one only because I had a soniq coming already...

Belmo lost because he made a couple terrible shots and chopped a spare, the first 5 frames he was nails and the ball was perfect.  Honestly a great ball for tough stuff.
