Storm Electrify Pearl
Storm created the Electrify line of bowling balls to offer value performance along with control in motion. This line of balls works well for beginners to pros. 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.

Color: Sky/Amethyst/Fuchsia
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: Reactor Pearl Reactive
Core: Circuit Core for 14#-16# (Modified Centripetal Core for 12# & 13#)
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
Recommended Lane Condition: Dry-Medium
RG: 2.51 (15#)
Differential: 0.030 (15#)
Fragrance: Frosted Cake

Electrify Pearl Review

Ball Specs:
Storm Electrify Pearl
Reactor Hybrid Cover stock
1500 Grit Polished
Circuit Core
Layout 45 x 3-3/8 x 40

Bowler Specs:
Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up
Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50.
Speed at release 17

The new Electrify Pearl is a very eye catching ball that smells great! It may have a lot of pink in the color but the guys are buying and like the look. As I stated before I have been a fan of the Match Ups but this Pearl may just be an upgrade on the Match Up Pearl.  I think I see a bit more mid lane motion and drive with this Electrify Pearl over the Matchup Pearl. Both balls carry very well. The Electrify Hybrid and Pearl have the same finish, cover and core but they move differently for me. The Hybrid reads earlier and seems to roll heavier so I had to move 3/ 3 to my right and find more friction when using the Pearl. When I found a line the carry was better than expected. The Electrify Pearl saves power for backend with a nice move and hit. I have used this ball at a few dryer houses now and it does not disappoint. It is a great ball going up the boards or down and in unless you have a power game than it is sweet control. I have drilled a few of these for our no thumb bowlers and they are very pleased. The Electrify Pearl is one of the best dry lane balls I have rolled.

The Electrify Pearl works great on dry conditions.
The color and smell of the ball are a big draw to shoppers.
The Electrify Pearl has a sweet move at the break point.

Storm Electrify Pearl review by Trevor Roberts

Length: 40
Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

From the first time I threw the Electrify Pearl, I liked how this ball went through the pins. For being a weaker ball, it provides great continuation through the pins. This ball is stronger than the Tropical Surge, and will give you more hook overall. I am still using this ball later in tournaments when the lanes break down quite significantly, but I know that I’m not losing any power while doing so. I am comfortable moving left with this ball when the friction to the right is defined. I also really like this ball while bowling on house shots. Typically there is a lot of hook to the right so this ball is good for clearing the fronts and still giving you the backend reaction you need.

Layout 75x5x25 rev rate 275 ball speed 14 mph PAP 4 ½ right and 1 up
Compared to my IQ Tour Emerald, which is, actually drilled the same way I am an arrow further right and about 2 or 3 boards further right at the break point. I like to use this ball at 4k no polish for my slower ball speed. The Electrify pearl is my go to for the 3rd game transition in league or late in our tournament blocks on the burn!

Drilling 70x2.5x35 rev rate 450 ball speed 17 PAP 3 ¾ right 1 up
I look at the Electrifies as a perfect compliment to my IQ's, with a higher RG and low DIFF they give me a perfect step down to compliment each other. Compared to my IQ Tour Emerald I see around 4 boards overall less hook but the same shape just another foot or so down lane where we need to see it on the dryer lanes. Going with a short Pin to PAP layout was a great way for me to blend out the wet dry conditions I bowl.

   Storm Electrify

When it comes to lower end balls people seem to shy away from them if they are a more serious bowler. These two Storm Electrify's are the reason why you should not sleep on the lower end balls. I was shocked when I seen these two balls on the lane in action. I compared both of them to each other the Pearl I found myself really comfortable with it right off the hop. On lower volume or burn its going to be a great ball to get through the front part of the lane. The hybrid was a lot more round for me so started up earlier then the Pearl for sure. I started out with the Pearl and had to move about 3 right to get lined up with the hybrid. The Pearl really comes off the spot nice but not to quick where you can't predict what it's going to do. Love that the Pearl gets down the lane easy, will help when I get in trouble with some of my more aggressive equipment. The hybrid is going to be good when the lanes get tricky and can use the slow roll to control the pattern.

Storm -Electrify Pearl - 35 x 3 1/2 x 30 - 1500 grit polished - Reactor Pearl cover with the new Circuit core.
Test lane condition: Broadwalk and USBC White
I drilled it to be used on shorter patterns and for a center I sub at that has HPL on the heads and great looking wood in the backends. I found that this layout and ball selection was great on Boardwalk and the shorter White pattern. Was able to play up the gutter and in the dirt and the ball did not hook up early like I expected it to with such a short front number. This brought me back some good memories seeing this ball react very similar to one of my old favorites - the Horizon from Roto Grip. If you are looking for that ball that helps you on shorter patterns or on wood lanes this will be a great ball to add to your weekly league bag.

Drilled my ELECTRIFY PEARL up 50 x 4 x 30. Left it box finish to get a feel for it. 4' pin positions for me are usually very early starters for my game which is on the straighter side of tweener.

Right away I noticed the length. Being a weaker cover than Storm's big hitters made it get length without having to throw harder or force it downlane. The ELECTRIFY PEARL should be good for dead burn or getting outside of a league shot with a defined dry area to the right/left of target.

I put it side by with a couple of other balls like the ASTRO PHYSIX & MVP PEARL. ASTRO as figured was a lot more motion downlane. MVP PEARL was also more motion but later downlane then the ASTRO. The ELECTRIFY PEARL looked like a step down when the MVP PEARL is getting up to the pocket too early.

Storm Electrify Pearl
Hey everyone, Storm staff member Brian Hirsch here with another ball review, and this time it’s for the Storm Electrify Pearl. The Electrify Pearl in 15 pounds has an RG of 2.51 and a Diff of 0.030. The first thing that impressed me with this ball and now has heard it many times is how online or clean it is for a ball to be used on higher friction or later in the block. Most “dry lane” balls startup too soon and are still boomy and or uncontrollable down the lane and will not go through the pins the right way. Not what I am seeing with the Electrify Pearl. This ball does hold energy and hits the pins with some power instead of being DOA. This ball is one to keep in the bag if you are bowling league and need something to finish off the night and not give away the pocket to much. Tournament players know we need a ball that will stay on line even later in blocks when we do not have a voodoo roll or lofting the caps in our game. Until next review do not forget to Bowl Up A Storm!

Introducing the Electrify Pearl, the newest release in the Hot line. The Electrify Pearl uses the new Circuit Core and is wrapped with the Reactor pearl cover. The layout that I went with was 4 x 4.5 x 2, this layout puts the pin up and kicked to the right of my ring finger and stacks the cg right under the pin. The Electrify Pearl is great when the lanes start to break down and transition and you need that extra length and recovery down lane. If you are looking for that can handle medium to medium dry lane conditions then look no further.

What a good looking ball! Love the colors and the reaction is perfect if your looking for a ball when the lanes get burned up or just light oil.  I drilled min 60 x 3 3/4” x 25 which is my strong drilling. I have a high track with a pap of 5 7/8” x 1” up.  Being a higher RG ball and low diff, this ball makes the turn nicely.  Even when the front part of the lane is dry, the ball still clears the heads for me and leaves lots of energy for the back.  This is similar in RG and Diff as the IQ Emerald except the cover isn’t as strong but gives me a similar shape.  I also found if I have to get left I still get the recovery I need.  When my Hyroad pearl is still too much as I have to get left, I can move a bit right and throw the Electrify Pearl.  Don’t under estimate this ball as it is one for everyone to have in there bag.  Get yours today!!

Storm Electrify Pearl

Reactor Hybrid Cover stock

1500 Grit Polished

Circuit Core

The Storm Electrify Pearl and Electrify Hybrid were introduced to take the place of the Match Up series in the Storm Lineup.

The Electrify Pearl skids through the heads with ease saving energy to make a quick turn once is gets to the dry.

The Electrify Hybrid starts up just a couple feet earlier than the pearl and has a stronger, smoother motion.

Either can find a spot in a bowler's house shot league bag or be very useful for your dry tournament conditions.

I would slot the Electrify Pearl as a step stronger than my Hustle RAP and a step down from my HyRoad Pearl.

I think the Electrify Hybrid would be a good fit when my phaze 2 is a little more than needed.

Layout: 35 x 4 1/8" x 65

I did something a little different with my Electrify Pearl - I went with a stronger pin than I usually use, and drilled it pin down, which I rarely do anymore. I then hit it with a fresh 3000 pad. My intent was to end up with something that was smooth and controllable, but still went through the pins well - and that is exactly what I got. Drilling it pin down makes it much more usable when straighter angles are better utilized, which still retaining plenty of energy for good pin carry. It is perfect for medium oil conditions.

I drilled my Electrify Hybrid pin up, to maintain backend reaction. Due to the ball being hybrid instead of pearl, however, it maintains controllability as well. I can switch to the Hybrid when I need slightly more overall motion.

The Storm Electrify Pearl review by Brian Watson.

I needed a weaker ball for the late shift or late blocks in tournaments. So I drilled a Electrify Pearl pin down with 4 1/2 pin.  As I felt like I needed something below the RG hustle series (great balls by the way) and above the Tropical Storms.  With the RG being high 2.51 and Differential of .030 this was a perfect fit in the ball reaction that I was looking for.  The Electrify Pearl gave me the length that I was looking for but still has enough pop on the back to give me good motion through the pins.  Perfect fit in my arsenal.

PAP  5 up 1 1/8
RPM  - 400
Speed 16-17
Tilt  - 17

The Electrify Pearl (EP) has a rg of 2.51 and .030 diff, so by nature the ball wants to go long down lane. For my game I had to drill this ball pretty strong just to assure it didn’t go too long. I also hit the cover with a 4000grit pad to take a little bit of the shine off.
Even with my drilling (4x4) and taking a little of the shine off, the EP was still plenty strong down lane. I didn’t think it would be as fast response as it was which was a pleasant surprise. I can see a lot of bowlers liking the EP on house shots where you need to get in and throw it out.

The new Electrify Pearl looks great on the ball return and rolls even better! It takes the familar Reactor Pearl coverstock that we've seen in many Hot and Tropical line releases and combines that with the new Circuit (2.51 RG, 0.030 differential) symmetrical core. What you get from this is a ball that gets down the lane very easily, but provides a very predictable motion and strong roll through the pins while still being punchy off of frictino. Entry-level price but a ball that's both great for newer bowlers AND has a lot of utility for tournament situations when there's a lot of available friction... can't beat that!
