DNA
« on: February 10, 2023, 10:27:50 AM »
Storm designed this high-performance ball from the inside out. They started designing the Storm DNA by creating the Supercoil weight block that has a very low RG shape with a higher undrilled intermediate differential. Since the mass of the weight block is located in the middle of the core it helps to read the midlane better. Storm then moved the carefully calculated and regulated chemical composition of the ball's coverstock. The EXO Reactive coverstock provides traction that will garner attention.

Color: Red/Black/Violet
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Core: Supercoil Core (14#-16#)
Coverstock: EXO Solid Reactive
Finish: 2000-grit Abralon
RG: 2.47 (based on 15# ball)
Differential: 0.053 (based on 15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Heavy Oil
Fragrance: Strawberry Shortcake

Likes: For me the DNA has been a really good step above a Phaze ll. Once it got a little bit of lane shine on it which happened pretty quickly it immediately gave me Phaze ll vibes. Although the DNA is crazy strong cover and core wise as soon as it lane shined it was getting down-lane just like a Phaze ll would for me but the only difference was the DNA is a touch more forward but not a lot! I also enjoy it a lot when I put it back to 3000 or even 2-1000. Then it becomes a comparable option to a reality for me. Overall for a ball of this strength it can still be pretty clean and can still open a lane up pretty well!

Dislikes: Don’t have any!

I am a higher speed, rev challenged 220-250ish, high tilt, high rotation, and super low track player, I drilled my Storm DNA 5x3x2 using the Storm VLS and my axis point is 3 ¼ right and 7/8 up. The Storm DNA is a very strong asymmetric ball that reads the midlane well and has continuation through the pins. However, I did drill a 14lbs ball equating to a higher RG and smaller diff, which does not serve me well. If I were to drill another ball I would consider drilling a 15lbs ball, so I can get the benefits of the lower RG and bigger Diff. Overall, the ball is responsive and I see myself using this on heavier to medium volumes of oil.
