I bought a Wrath about 1 1/2 months ago.  It had a five inch pin so I had it drilled stacked leverage which put the pin well over the fingers.  It goes very long and turns very hard!  I shot a 300 at ABC Nationals in Syracuse and had my best nationals ever with it.  It is defiantely a keeper!

I drilled this ball to go long with a slight arcing back end. VERY good results. Used it on fried out heads at our state tournament and shot 2000+ on a less than friendly scoring environment.

The ball revs early but  provides a very readable midlane reaction. Works very well on blocks (allows you to bank the dry) and fried heads, not very good on carrydown but its not really meant for that condition.

Overall, a great arsenal ball, I'm tempted to try one with a more aggressive pin placement to see how it does on fried heads with carrydown...

Definitely a winner from Storm!!

Never altered the surface of the Wrath since out of the box condition.  The ball goes long with a powerful back end punch.  However, like most of the pearls, it's not too forgiving in oil.  Excellent ball on easy condition when you can bank the gutter or throw it straight up with speed.  Definitely has more snap than the original El Nino since I have thrown that one also.  Real twisters will have to throw it hard but well worth the power and hit it generates.  Slow rollers will have to move left (for righties and right for lefties).

I drilled a Wrath after very good experiences with the Bolt and the El Nino.  Unlike my other storms I drilled this 5x4 with the pin under my middle finger.  Big mistake.  I don't have enough hand to throw this one with such a mellow drill.  It isn't bad but the shell is still a little too agressive to use it on toast, but it isn't strong enough to be an oil ball for me.  I think the power guys might really like it with a mellow drill but if you are a straight player drill it to flare.

I got the wrath this past summer, but have just recently begun to throw it.  Compared to my Chaos, it clears the heads better, but will make the turn with plenty to spare when the lanes are scorched.  You can even use it down the boards to hit just as hard.  Unless you can crank the ball, with its length rating, stay away from the flooded conditions.

This is one of the best Storm ball ever made. I've had this ball since

it came out. Since then my average has jumped 20 pins. I recommend

Storm to anyone who hasn't tried their stuff before.

I have owned the WRATH for about 2 years and I have only used it as a strike ball for about 3 months.  It was a good ball and everything but it wasnt what I was looking for.  My house is on the drier side so the ball hooked and hit well but I couldn't control my break point, so I resurfaced it, removing all of the reacta-flex so the ball couldn't grab as much and know I use it as my spare ball, and it works incredibly well.  I clean it but I use a cleaner that leaves the ball tacky so it doesn't grip the lane, so it is an excellent convert into a spare ball.

Let's put it this way, in one shot you will accomplish twice as many revs as my good self - and then probably some more just for a laugh. While I've labelled myself a hook bowler on occasions when I've wanted to sound important and good, I will confess here and now that I am a straight bowler who gets maybe half a board of movement on the backend. I'm sure you're finding this all really fasinating but it does have a point.

The El Nino Wrath, no matter what style of bowler you are, is a fantastic piece or, erm, resin. This is an extremely forgiving ball. You'll hardly ever leave a split with this ball and when you do you throughly deserve it. While, from my experince anyway, the El Nino Wrath doesn't have great punch, it's pin-reaction more than makes up for this. A super-reliable line with a hint of backend allows the ball to give itself the room to spread the pins.

I was a 155 bowler I purcahsed this ball and it raised my game by a good 10-15 pins. It's durable too. I've had it for two years now and I just bowled a 639 with it so it retains its energy.

I reccomend this ball and I should know, I have a goldfish called Fred.

I have had this ball for about 4 months now and it's working well for me. I haven't got it drilled to aggressive but it still moves quite a bit. I like using this ball alot because it is versatile so i can use it on many conditions.

I have one thats been sitting for about 6 months.  I love the ball.  It has absorbed a lot of oil, and lost a lot of its reaction.  I'm contemplating selling it and getting something that compares to it, or getting it resurfaced for the 2nd time.

It's very versatile.  Mine is laid out with the pin to the right, and below the ring finger.  The CG is about 5 inches below the pin, to the right of the thumb hole.  There is an extra hole as well.

This ball goes about midlane and it hits like a truck.  I love the pin action that this ball causes.  I've used it on wood and synthetic and it still hits the same.  It does tend to skid in heavier oil, however.

Overall - It goes midlane to long, turns predictably.  Hits very nice, takes out corners well.  Versatile, but not for very heavy oil or extreme dryness.  I give it a 9.25/10

Of the 3 Storm balls I traded for, the other 2 being the Trauma Response and the Super Power, this ball has been a very pleasant surprise. I polished this ball big time and drilled it to be for very dry conditions. What I've found is that it is a better-than-average hitter that works just great on the shot that I wanted it for. The ball looks like it's drilled for a lefty, but it gives me a great read on the lanes. When all of my other stuff is bouncing off of the dry too early, the Wrath stays nice and long and then delivers a smooth break into the pocket. Once it gets there, it's lights out baby. I'm not sure how it would react on anything but the toast that I'm using it on, but with this drilling and coverstock prep this ball is very solid. 8.5 out of 10.

Bowling is without a doubt the dumbest, most pointless, most idiotic excuse for a game that has ever been invented. So, what time are we bowling tomorrow?

got this one from a lefty and left the layout the same....pin above my middle finger, cg out a little left.  
 
i'm going to quote a friend by saying, you might as well call this ball el nine-o.  on house shots, this ball is way to much skid/snap....like a 7, the ball makes a right angle when it flips over.  

but when you get it on tuffer sport shots...they tame it down a little.  i can get way left, loft the guttercap, and not worry about it NOT coming back...i just have to worry about going through the nose.
overall...not too bad of a ball, you just have to know when to use it and when to keep it in the bag.
