Storm AstroPhysiX
« on: June 20, 2019, 09:28:46 AM »
The Storm AstroPhysiX high performance bowling ball was carefully designed to meet the need of bowlers. This ball offers awesome power and angle through the Atomic core and R2S Pearl Reactive coverstock. This ball delays reaction inorder to explode on the backend. This ball matches well with bowlers that have a big swing and want extra backend.

All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown

Finish: 1500-grit Polished

Astro Physix

Kassy Shumate's Review

First off, the ball is gorgeous.. Smells amazing too. Now that we got that out of the way we can get to the good stuff. I knew I was going to like this ball before I even got it. The original Physix is my favorite ball at this moment and I love anything with the R2S cover on it. Arguably the best cover ever made. I've never been one who has liked the look of a ball with an earlier roll but the combination of the early roll and the cover which helps it get further down the lane is amazing. Of all of the balls in my arsenal this one goes through the pins the best. It hits really hard and continues whether I miss in or get it out to the spot where the friction is. This ball shines the most on fresh oil, it needs the oil to do its job or it starts getting jumpy off the spot.

Length: 42

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

The Astro Physix is the second ball released in the premier line of balls from Storm featuring the  Atomic core. The Astro has a Rg of 2.48, 0.053 diff, and an intermediate diff of 0.017 in 15lb weights. The beautiful color combination of cyan/indigo/charcoal looks great! This version uses the R2S pearl cover, compared to the hybrid NRG cover of the Physix. The Astro has a factory finish of 1500.

I drilled the Astro Physix 4.5 x 5 x 2.5. Using the Astro in the box finish on a 42 foot house condition, the Astro was very flippy off the spot with this layout. I touched the surface lightly with a well used 2000 abralon pad just to crack some of the shine. This helped the Astro read the lane much better, making it less squirty, but not losing too much of the dowlane reaction. Comparing the Astro to a Physix drilled 4 x 4 x 2.5, the Astro has a few feet more length, and more of a continuous motion through the backends, where the Physix stands up harder and rolls more direct. They compliment each other well. I originally wanted to compliment my first Physix (4 x 5 x 3, polished), but found that with the touch of surface, the Astro is best suited to compliment the 4 x 4 x 2.5 Physix. The Astro is also a nice reaction to go to from my Idol pearl when it becomes too rounded to carry consistently. The Astro is an asymmetrical ball that allows me to get a little deeper on the lane than what most asymmetrical balls have allowed me to do in the past. The only other asymmetrical ball that I can remember with this much downlane move was a Hyper Cell Skid.

I wouldn’t call the Astro Physix a benchmark ball because of its strong nature, but more as a fill ball when I need downlane hook. This is a good ball for opening up conditions without using too much head belly. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of the Storm Astro Physix. As always, bowl up a Storm!

Bowler Bio
Gender : Female
Rev Rate : 315
Ball Speed: 16.5 mph
P.A.P : 4 1/2 & 1-1/8 up

Right out of the box this ball really surprised me. Could not believe how hard it came of the spot once it hit the dry !! If you love getting left and swinging the lane look no further. I could keep moving left and this ball would keep finishing. As I moved left with the original Physix it would start to roll out and not give me the pop that the Astro would. The big core and cover stock helps bowlers generate revs and producing that big back end shape.I compared the  Astro to the original and had to move 2-3 boards right with the Astro on the fresh to get the ball to strike mainly because the original started up a bit earlier for me. Once lanes started to break down I could just keep moving left with the Astro, when using the original Physix I find myself having to stay more right to prevent the ball from rolling out.

My name is Doug Cutler and I am a Storm Staffer and I am left handed. I throw the ball between 15-16mph and I am considered to be a stroker.  This review is for the Astrophysix and man this ball is a beast.  I have drilled the Astrophysix 70 x 5 x 35 and the surface I used a 3000 pad on it.  This ball I have used on our house shots and also on Heavy oil pattern like the PBA Bear.  This ball is really clean in the mid lane and it saves its energy for the back and has a lot of back end reaction.  This is the strongest Asymmetrical ball I have ever had.  I really like the R2S Coverstock and the ball is special.  I really liked the Physix and the Astrophysix is a great compliment. I have used both of these a lot and I usually start on our House shot with the Astrophysix and then when the Astrophysix is going to far then I will go to the Physix.  With the Astrophysix I am able to play way outside like around 5th or out and I can also play 4th arrow and I just change hand positions.  This ball is great for THS, and medium to Heavy Oil Patterns.  If you are looking for a good House shot ball or a strong ball that is clean in the mid lane, then you need this ball in your bag.  Another Fantastic ball from Storm.  Go to your local Pro Shop and purchase your Storm Astrophysix today.  #stormnation #astrophysix
