I too fell in love with my first few storm pieces, but I have to say I'm extremely disappointed with almost everything since 2011. My t-road pearl and rapid fire are amazing balls that have many games and still roll great (bought both used to give storm a try) but nearly every ball I've drilled NIB has been a dud. I've tried numerous cover changes on IQ tour, victory road, crossroad, tropical heat pearl, and a fringe and nothing made them work. Everyone says that storm is so skid-flippy, but I feel their equipment is the opposite of that for me. The only ball I've had luck with is my Hy-road, and now even that's showing signs of dying after about 7 months of use. I just did an oil extraction so hopefully that comes back to life, but I'm seriously considering trying other companies once the college season is over. The biggest selling point for storm though is definitely the versatility and how they re-use cores and covers that are proven to work for a large amount of styles, I'm not saying their equipment isn't good, obviously the success on tour shows how good it is, but I find that it doesn't match up to my game that well.
