Neptune vs. Tropical Storm
« on: September 06, 2008, 06:33:51 PM »
Has anybody threw these 2 enough to compare them or seen them thrown?

Wondering how close they are and if the Tropical would fit great below the Neptune?


Thanks!

Given the range of balls that Reactor has been on, I would think that the Tropical would fit above the Neptune.  Most of what I've heard puts the Tropical as a more skid/snap piece that's pretty strong for an entry-level ball while the Neptune is a very mild, smooth pearl.

Just my impression from reading posts here.  I don't have either of them, though I've seen a few Tropicals on the lanes here.

I'd also say the Tropical would fit above the Neptune.

I have seen quite a few in action and they change directions pretty quick.

My Neptune is stronger than it's supposed to be but it doesn't flip.  It has a pretty smooth medium arc-ing reaction.

Between mine there was quite a large difference. My Tropical actually hooked quite a bit and had to be heavily polished to handle dry. The Neptune hardly hooked for me unless they were torched. Didn't really get what I was looking for out of either one. I think I am going to try a Jazz now.

I was kind of thinking along the lines of what you 3 have said!

But I did read somewhere on here that RotoGrip themselves was directing customers to Storm's Tropical Storm when they were needing something that went longer (or was weaker) than the Neptune.

So I was confused.

Tropical Storm is definitely stronger than the Neptune.
