All-Road
The All-Road is the latest continuation of the Thunder line. It has the same core as the Hyroad’s and a Nano based cover that has been featured on the Physix and Super Soniq. This ball is exactly as described. It reads the mid-lane harder than the Hyroad, Hyroad Pearl and Hyroad X but still has that Hyroad shape downlane; but it’s weaker than a physic because of its symmetrical core. I personally think this is the smoothest Hyroad we’ve seen in some time. Its predictable in the mid-lane and is not too sharp downlane like the Hyroads sometimes get. I can see myself using this on the fresh conditions as well as league; It blended the wet/dry cliff well for me. This ball will fare well for all players in my opinion. The All-Road is neither too strong for the lower ball speed players nor too weak for the higher ball speed players— it is just right. I look forward to seeing these all over the racks of bowling centers because this ball is just that good.

Ball Review:

I was definitely excited about the All Road given my recent success with the NRG Hybrid Reactive coverstocks seen on the Physix and Super SonIQ as both balls rolled extremely well for me. Additionally, the Hy-Road Nano had been one of my favorite benchmark balls to date. Combining one of my favorite covers with one of the most popular cores of all time was something I was definitely excited about.

With the NRG coverstocks I had seen a lot of boards crossed with both the Physix and Super SonIQ. Where the All Road comes into play is the higher RG versus the aforementioned balls which will allow the All Road to be cleaner through the front part of the lane, storing energy and creating maximum backend reaction versus the other 2 balls.

The All Road is a perfect compliment to the Physix and Super SonIQ. When you need something longer without burning up this will be a great ball to jump into. Similar to the Gravity Evolve it seemed like the further I moved left the ball just didn't quit which is essential when the lanes begin to transition. This will be a must have for all levels of bowlers.

The layout we placed on this ball is 45 x 3 3/4 x 35.

Make sure you visit your local Storm VIP Pro shop to Drill It Up!

Storm All-Road
Layout: Pin 4 inches and 1 inch pin buffer
Rev Rate: 300 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Storm All-Road utilizes the NRG Hybrid coverstock and Inverted Fe2 core.  This core is the engine that made the long-lasting Storm Hy-Road famous.  This core allows for a thicker than normal coverstock, which always translates into a great ball.  When comparing the All-Road with the Hy-Road, we saw an earlier breakpoint with the All-Road.  The pin carry is what you expect from this new Thunder Line addition – Great!  The All-Road will fit between my Storm Super SoniQ and Storm Hy-Road.  The All-Road will be a great benchmark ball for your bag.

I could not wait to get the All Road as I was looking for something I could use the first couple of games during our scratch league. I wanted something I could start further right with and then as the night goes on when I have to move left I can go to my Gravity Evolve. The first game of our scratch league after getting it drilled I tried to use it but was having some issues with carry. Even when getting it out to the dry I was leaving weak 10s. I  went to my Gravity Evolve which was good for about 2.5 games and then it started hooking quite a bit for me. I switched back to the All Road game 4 and it was just what I needed as the outside part of the lanes were getting drier.  I was able to move my feet a couple board right from the gravity evolve and carry the 10.

Overall, I think this ball is gonna be a good ball for me to start with or even to end the night with. I just have to make sure the lanes are dry enough for me to use this. This will definitely be a ball I take to tournaments. I am looking forward to seeing what this ball will give me on sport shots or other house shots.

Here comes another great addition to the Hy-Road family. Strom is bringing you the all new All-Road. The All-Road has the incredibly successful Hy-Road core inside, wrapped around the cover originally featured on the Physix, Hybrid Nano Technology. What this cover and combo gives the bowler is the perfect step below your benchmark bowling ball. When something like your Phaze II becomes too early and not quite giving you the correct shape and the corner pins tend to show their face a little more often then you would like, the All-Road fits the gab perfectly from a solid to a pearl.

The All-Road is the perfect hybrid option that gives you nice length with incredible backend. I was really impressed with how much this ball hooks downlane. I was expecting this ball to be quite smooth with the hybrid nano cover stock because the nano coverstock is known for being controllable and smooth, but with this cover and core combo, I saw a clean and more angular shape. I still see the predictability of this ball, but I wasn’t expecting it to shape as much as it did. Believe me, I’m not complaining because this ball hits like a train!

Review:
The latest addition to the Road series of Storm Balls is excellent. The road line has been very good for Storm and I know this new All Road will have a lot of success. The Road series has a very thick shell which Storm says, and I believe, provides more hit by delivering more energy to the pins. The ball looks rougher than the 4000 grit listed to me. We had a Match Maker Ball Demo recently and this was the most popular ball after the Idol Pro. I am very impressed with my All Road and did not expect the total hook and angle I get from this ball. It seems to me Storms Symmetrical equipment regularly provides more hook than I expect. I am pretty comfortable moving inside with this ball and keeping my carry percent high. The All Road works well on a house shot as long as you keep it in the oil long enough and is good on a flat shot due to the sanded Hybrid cover. I don’t see much lane shine at all on this ball when I am done rolling it.
We have drilled a good amount of these so far for my customers and we have seen great ball motions from a variety of styles. I would put this ball between my Original Halo and Idol Pro in total hook with a surprisingly strong back end.

Summary:
The All Road is another nice addition to the Road Series.
The Ball has a very strong back end move.
The All Road plays well from inside while maintaining hit.
The All Road will be in my bag a lot!

AllRoad
70x5x40 layout
The allroad is a different shape for this line. And i love it. Its much smoother then the other balls in this line
If you liked the hyroad nano then you will like this one as well. Ball motion wise. Its clean and smooth. doesnt over read
the front part of the lane but also doesnt over hook. Id use this ball close to when id use an iq tour but just wanting a different shape.
This fills a gap in my bag i didnt even know i had.

I had my new Storm All-Road drilled up with a 5 x 4 ½ x 2 pin buffer layout. If there’s one thing I’ve found to be consistent in the HyRoad family, I always end up with a very late and angular reaction. Any attempts to thwart that through layout usually results in a poor performing ball. So, I decided to embrace the longer skid and hard hook phase.

I compared this ball to my current benchmark ball, the ProMotion. The difference was clear. As expected, the All-Road was much sharper on the back end where the ProMotion was smooth and predictable. I expected the Hybrid NRG surface, at 4000 abralon, to read a bit sooner. But it was certainly later than I expected.
Though it didn’t read the mid-lane as early as I thought it might, it certainly didn’t disappoint on the back end of the lane. With the larger symmetrical core, I know I can get a zone deeper with this ball and still see the core stand up and drive through the rack.

Team this with the new Gravity Evolve, Astro Physics, and a ProMotion and you’ve got all you’ll need to score big and consistent.
