Fever Pitch Urethane Pearl
« on: January 23, 2019, 12:37:05 PM »
The Storm Fever Pitch carries on the successful line of Pitch bowling balls in the Storm line up. The Fever Pitch does not react as early as the Pitch Black ball but it corners better than the Pitch Blue bowling ball. Storm is introducing a new weight block and coverstock with the Fever Pitch. The Tour Block core is wrapped with the PWR+CTRL Pearl Urethane coverstock to create a ball that is better on shorter oil patterns and drier lane conditions.

Color: Orange Pearl
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: PWR+CTRL Pearl Urethane
Core: Tour Block
Finish: 2000-grit Abralon
RG: 2.61 (for a 15# ball)
Differential: 0.030 (for a 15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Light Oil

PICTURES AND/OR VIDEOS
The Fever Pitch is the motion that I have been wanting from Urethane.  I have not always been able to use urethane because I like to see a little shape down lane, which is of course, what urethane is supposed to control.  Urethane from the past has hooked very early with not much shape down lane.  The Fever Pitch you are able to get a little further in, throw it out, or even miss out, with the ball still being able to recover and even create angle down lane.

Here are some other Urethane options that I was able to compare with. Where the Fever Pitch Shines is when you need to get in and create angle.  I said it before but itís just magical how this urethane shapes down lane.  Maybe itís the modified HyRoad Core, we all know thatís a special piece. The joke with a couple bowlers at my center is ďwhen is it time to Ball UP to the Fever Pitch?Ē

Purple Flame Pearl-Old School and Drilled over the label
Pitch Black-60 x 5 x 30
Hot Cell- 60 x 4 x 45
Fever Pitch- 60 x 4-1/2 x 35

With the resurgence of Urethane it has become a popular tournament option and I do not see that trend going away.  This is the one that you do not want to pass on.

I had a chance to drill the Fever Pitch is Storm's newest release in the Thunder line, and it's a new take on urethane. It's not technically urethane, the Pwr + Ctrl cover is a urethane-like material that's meant to give the feel of urethane with a more resin-like shape to bridge the gap from traditional urethane like the Pitch Black to low end reactives as far as shape is concerned. It's both easier down the lane and more responsive on the backend than urethane without being as long and flippy. I drilled mine 40 x 4.5 x 30 this ball looks great on dryer lanes and allows me to play a part of the lane I normally can with I see the burn

The gap between the Roto Grip Hot Cell and Storm Pitch Black was always a big gap as the Hot Cell has that much stronger Asymmertical core. Enter the new Fever Pitch, a pearl urethane that packs way more punch than its predecessor in the Pitch Blue. Fever Pitch was more back end and cleaner than the Pitch Black. This ball will be great on those patterns that are a little longer where the Pitch Black isnít enough or once you need something with a little more pop on the back end but need that urethane type shape.
