Ball NPS Score: Not Available
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.

Color: Navy/Hunter Green
Coverstock: R2S Solid Reactive
Core: Booster HV Core (14-16)
Finish: 2000-grit Abralon
RG: 2.56 (based on 15#)
Differential: 0.044 (based on 15#)
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium Oil
Fragrance: Lavender Vanilla

I had a chance to drill the Torrent with the layout of 5 1/2 x16x45. My PAP is 4 1/4 x 1/4 up. This ball with this layout reads the mid lane really fast with my rev rate and higher ball speed. This ball compared to an IQ Tour solid picks up faster when the IQ goes too long. It's a great choice to add in someone's bag if you need a ball between the Sure lock and IQ.

Volume: med-high

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


I drilled the Torrent with my normal pin up layout, 70*5*35. No extra hole needed. I compared the Torrent to my rocketship with the same layout and found that the Torrent was alittle cleaner through the front part of the lane than the RocketShip and has alittle more continuation down lane. Still a very smooth motion though. I prefer this shape on my normal league pattern over the RocketShip because it doesn't rev up too fast and slow down on me once it hits the down lane friction. I can migrate in alittle bit with this ball where as with the RocketShip I cant. Very good ball to have in your bag.

Storm Torrent

Layout: pin above the bridge, cg 2 inches directly below it.

Condition: 40 ft HPL house shot

I drilled the Torrent to be my bench ball. The layout I put on this ball is very good for me. It gives me a nice read out of my bag to see how the lanes are playing. The ball is very smooth of the spot, keeps the pins low and strikes a lot for me.  My wife calls this the Earth ball for its rich blue and green color scheme and a strong lavender scent.  It has a sharp look going down the lane and a good shelf appeal. Whatever your preference, performance or look get out to you local pro shop and pick one up, you won't be disappointed. This ball is available now. If you are in the Evansville, IN go see Nick Austin at The Bowling Place located in Arc Lanes.  Bowl up a Storm

Ball: Storm Torrent
Specs: 4000 grit AB with a label drill with pin above ring finger
Lane info: SPL installed in early 2010s and using KEGEL Ion with Fire conditioner w/ defense C cleaner
What I Liked: I changed the surfaced to 4000 grit AB to give it a little more length because the reaction off the pattern with the box finish was very strong and very quick. For me, 2000AB read real quickly off of the pattern, taking it to 4000 grit AB allowed it just that smoother transition off of the wet and onto the dry, made it more manageable for me. Very Strong I stress Very Strong solid reactive cover ball. I feel that is ball would be the first piece out of my bag when I bowl at the ABC centers that have the newer Brunswick panels without taking a second thought. Great strong piece without having to go to a ASYM core solid.
