Storm Electrify Pearl

The Electrify bowling balls feature the Circuit Core which uses a lower RG and medium differential to offer accuracy. The Pearl version of this ball utilizes the Reactor Pearl coverstock which offers control without too much motion at the backend on medium to light oil.

Storm Electrify Pearl
Layout: Pin 4 “ and 1” pin buffer
Rev Rate: 325 rpm
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Storm Electrify was impressive in its first practice session.  I went into the practice and video session with a mind set the Electrify was going to be similar to my Tropical Surge.  Boy was I ever wrong.  First the specifications – Reactor Pearl coverstock wrapped around the new Circuit Core.  The bonus is the frosted cake fragrance.  After about three warm up shots to get loose and determine where I needed to play on the broken down, light volume house shot, I threw 18 consecutive shots in the pocket.  And, it wasn’t because I was splitting boards and posting every shot.  I had my typical array of off shots.  I didn’t say I struck every time but I controlled the pocket, which is what you want late in the day of a house shot tournament.  I walked away impressed.  My opinion is the Storm Electrify is early and has a stronger down lane motion than the Storm Tropical Surge, which is what the specifications tell us.  I typically struggle with carry percentage with lower end balls.  The reason is I need to move in when the lanes break down and loose carry with the weaker balls.  I don’t see this happening with the Storm Electrify. #Stormnation

My Electrify Pearl is drilled with my normal symmetric layout which is 7/8 pin off center line and CG 2 inch from center line. With this ball having the same cover as the Tropical Surge I have very good length, but with the core numbers being 2.51 rg and .30 cg (15lbs) it has some more backend and slightly earlier. The ball works great for me because I like to stand far left and throw up the gutter. Definitely not the first ball out of the bag, but will be good for dry lanes of shorter patterns where the break point is outside.

Electrify Pearl
Introducing Storm’s new low end pearl, the Electrify Pearl. The Electrify Pearl has the new Circuit Core wrapped with the Reactor Pearl Coverstock. With a RG of 2.51 and a differential of .030, this ball is a great piece for when you need a ball that is very clean and angular downlane. When you find your lower end balls like the hyroad or hyroad pearl being too much in the midlane or just being very uncontrollable, the electrify pearl will give you the length you’re looking for with a smoother back end motion.
This ball is best used for very dry lane conditions or older surfaces. This ball strikes a ton and is a steal for the price point that it is at! Get yours at your local Storm VIP Pro Shop!

Storm has added a couple new Hot line releases called the Electrify. The Electrify Pearl has great shelf appeal. The Pink, Light Blue, Fuchsia swirl looks great on the wall and going down the lane. The Electrifys feature the new Circuit Core and Storm's benchmark entry level cover: Reactor.

The biggest change from the Match Up line is that the Circuit Core is a lower RG lower diff core. This makes the balls very controllable. The pearl cover really makes this ball something different in terms of getting the ball downlane and then taking advantage of the smooth motion. It reminds me of the Roto Grip Scream with just a bit more hook and hit.

I tested it first on a fresh house shot for league in a house with ample friction. I was amazed at how easy it felt to get the ball downlane and not have it over-react. I had trouble getting some balls to slow down so that my misses tended to be splits and washouts. With focusing on simply rolling the Electrify Pearl to the right it felt like i had incredible hold and just enough get back to really open up the area around the track right away. With small hand position changes I played through the transition well. I didn't really see a need to change balls until the transition (which is considerable on this surface) Forced me inside of 4th arrow.

I see this ball being really helpful on lower volume/medium length oil patterns and in houses with alot of surface friction.

Review:
This is one of those staple balls we look forward coming into our shop for many reasons. The color and fragrance are great (yes this matters to a novice bowler looking to step up from a Tropical Storm or a first ball purchase of something a bit more than “entry level”).  This ball also serves many purposes for the traditional league bowler as well as seasoned tournament veteran. The Electrify Pearl could be used to fill the gap for a traditional league bowler who either does not have a symmetrical piece of equipment or has not yet experienced a pearl coverstock to help stay to the right part of the lane on those nights where you may run into some dry conditions. This ball is also a must have for the seasoned tournament veteran who needs a ball to get through the dry conditions late in a block without having to move against the ball return. Pairing with the Electrify you will also find success in times that you want to play to the right of everyone else. You can see similarities in the Electrify Pearl to that of the Match Up Pearl in that it fills the gap between the Tropical and the Thunder lines perfectly and still packs a punch that you need to carry those corners!

For those lighter oil conditions we have 2 options in the Electrify series, Hybrid and Pearl. We see the Reactor cover matched with the new Circuit core which will provide bowlers a go-to option for when the lanes are hooking significantly and cleanliness and control is what’s required.

If you’re looking for something a little bit early go with the Hybrid and the reverse if you’re looking for more angle go with the pearl. This is going to be a great piece in 2 different environments for me. I can see myself using this after a long block of games and a weaker core cover combination is needed and potentially early in blocks in those houses where the fronts hook super early and you need a ball to clear the fronts and still maintain control off the back end.

Storm Electrify Pearl
Layout – 55 x 5 x 25
I drilled both Electrify balls with the same layout and tried to differentiate them using surface.  I had the Electrify Pearl a couple of boards weaker with more length.  Both balls are super clean through the front of the lane with plenty of back end continuation!  My expectation is to use this ball late in blocks as the “weakest’’ ball I plan to carry. Right now my HyRoad Pearl is my weakest and sometimes that ball is too round in shape and I need some more “flip” down lane.  The Electrify Pearl gives me exactly that!  For those of you needing to fill that spot in your bag, you won’t find something prettier or better.  Get yours today!
