Electrify Solid
« on: August 11, 2021, 04:34:23 PM »
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 Solid version of this ball utilizes the Reactor Solid coverstock which offers an earlier and smoother reaction on medium to light oil.

Color: 3-tone Red Solid
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: Reactor Solid 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 Cinnamon

Storm Electrify Solid - Layout: 55 x 2 x 55 - 200 grit polished
Ball test conditions: Practiced on 44ft THS on SPL and 46ft THS on older HPL
My first thoughts: OH CRAP, a solid that will burn up at the arrows for me on any pattern or lane surface. Well, atleast is smells GREAT in the Santa Fe on the way home from bowling.
My actual results: Well, I stayed "positive" when trying the Electrify Solid out with the layout that Bret at Bowlers Supply would suit my needs. Found even with the 2 inch pin the ball did not pick up early like I imagined it would, actually worked super well on SPL and played relative outside of 12 across the arrows and held energy all the way through the patterns. Reminded me of the old Roto Grip Riot I had so many years ago, in the way the motion is smooth rolling through the heads, and very smooth but yet strong in the backend. Will drill another one with a longer pin to PAP with a little more "kick" in it to get the motion on the backend a little more stronger.

Ball Specs:
Storm Electrify Solid
1500-grit Polished Reactorâ„¢ Solid Reactive
Weight Block: Circuitâ„¢ Core (Symmetrical)
Color: 3-tone Red Solid

Review:
Everyone loves a good mid level solid ball. This is a ball that is in play for a long period of time because of its versatility. Changing covers on mid level balls is also very popular for that reason. From what we have seen many people are experiencing great success with taking the polish off if you experience more of a traditional house shot, or a house shot that puts a lot of volume down. If you loved the Electrify Pearl but need something a bit stronger this is a great compliment and the 3-tone red color looks amazing.

Electrify Solid
55 x 5 x 25

This ball is probably the smoothest rolling ball in the entry level/lower mid category across our 3 brands.  It is very clean through the front of the lane and very smooth and rolly down the lane.   Usually when I drill balls in this performance category they are very angular off of the friction, this one sees friction and rolls.  I recommend these to slower ball speeds or to anyone looking for a predictable dry lane ball.  For you tournament players, don't be afraid to get the pin closer to your PAP, put 500 on it and throw it at the gutter if urethane isn't the right idea!  Great low end ball!

The newest addition to the Electrify series. Storm brings you the new Electrify Solid. This Electrify is no different than the others when it comes to the core that we find in all the Electrify balls. Storm decided to make a solid version to compliment our other solid symmetrical pieces in our line. This Electrify Solid gives players the ability to still throw a solid symmetrical option before getting into any pearls.
This ball for me can be very useful for flatter patterns and lighter volume when my benchmark symmetrical pieces are either too early or too responsive downlane, or if you’re an active league bowler, the Electrify Solid can be the perfect option when your benchmark ball is starting to read too early and lose shape downlane. This ball you can stand in the same spot and because of the weaker cover and higher surface, this ball glides through the front and still continues downlane.
Stop by your local Storm VIP Pro Shop and pick yours up today!

Shock yourself into something smooth
The Storm Electrify is a mid performance ball that gives me a much smoother reaction and less hook overall than the high end pieces. It’s one I can use on our house shot when I want to go straighter and decrease my odds of a ball jumping thru the face and leaving a big split. This ball has the smooth circuit core just like the previous Electify pearl and hybrid. This coverstock is the Reactor solid reactive finished at 1500 grit polished.  To me its on of those balls that clears midlane well and transitions to the dry with unbelievable control and predicability. Very nice clean motion off the spot. Been most comfortable starting around 15 to 10 at the arrows and just bumping it out to the 5-10 area. It carries very well, and hit hard with great pin action. To compare, when my dark code is too much and need something a less, I switch to my Electrify solid.  My PAP is 5-1/8 and 1/8 up. Usually around 15-16mph, I’d probably be classified between and tweener and cranker.

COMMENTS

Likes: looks, smell, reaction

Dislikes: none really!


The best one yet!  This polished solid not only looks good and smells good, but the performance is right up there as well!  I have leaned towards the Hustle line for lower end reaction for a couple years now, but this thing is something else.  The Electrify’s before this one never really matched up with my game.  Either it read too soon or it didn’t read it at all.  Once I added surface I got to a reaction that I could attain with another ball. 
The Electrify Solid is unique enough in its motion that I could use this in tandem with the Hustles.  It’s strong enough to read the pattern and yet it doesn’t fly off the spot either.  I just got back from Holiday Doubles, bowled at St. Clair lanes outside St. Louis and there were A LOT of these going down the lanes and they looked good!  That center had a lower volume pattern with a higher friction surface.  That was an Ideal match for this bad boy!

Layout for me is: 4x5x2

Other balls getting a lot of play:
Dark Code-4.5x4.25.3.75
UFO Alert-4.5x5x3.75
Altered Reality-4.25x5.25x2
Wolverine-4.25x5.25x2

Storm Electrify Solid Ball Review

Hey everyone, I’m back with another ball review, and this time it’s for the Storm Electrify Solid and in 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the Reactor Solid Coverstock and comes 1500-grit polished with an RG of 2.51 and a Diff of .030.
Layout for this ball is 4 3/4 X 4 X 4
There are not many balls that can cover a variety of conditions, especially at an entry level price point. To give a comparison the Electrify Pearl needs a touch more friction than the solid does. I can see where the Solid and Pearl will naturally fit in a tournament bag when you need to be longer and stronger than something like a Hy-Road. Out here we have a couple of centers that are on the high friction lane surface, and this is when I see these balls shine!
BOWLER STYLE: RH - Power Stroker Rev Rate: 320 Ball Speed: 15-16 PAP: 4 7/8 right 5/8 up.

The Electrify Solid is the newest addition to the hot line. This ball has the same Circuit Core that has been in the hybrid and pearl, however, this ball is wrapped in the Reactor solid coverstock previously found on the Match Up Solid. This ball offers a unique reaction that is unlike others in its class. The Electrify solid allows me to keep my angles straighter on a variety of different patterns while maintaining downlane shape. I would strongly recommend this ball for all bowlers who are looking for a high-performance ball for a low-performance price!

Electrify Solid - Ball Specs
Cover Stock: Reactor Solid
Finish: 1500-grit Polished
Core: Circuit Core
Layout: 5 X 4 X 4
RG: 2.51
Differential: 0.030


It’s been a while since I drilled a ball at this performance level and wow was that a bad decision not to.  For the price point, this ball is a banger!  This ball is very clean and with my drilling pattern that I put on it, was very predictable down lane.  Where I thought this ball may go sideways, it did make a strong move put nothing too sharp.  I used this after filming reviews of the wolverine and Nova so the lanes had a chance to get pretty crispy.  This ball allowed me to continue moving back right, which again is a welcomed site as a lot of the times going left and throwing it further down the lane are the options I gave myself. 

A very predictable ball, and definitely a solid purchase at the price point.

The Storm Electrify Solid is a pleasant surprise to me. The Circuit Core results in a lower differential and medium RG – ideal for broken-down oil patterns. The Reactor Solid coverstock allows for this bowling ball to better deal with the higher volumes of conditioner on the lanes. The Electrify Solid also looks pretty going down the lane!

Since the Electrify Solid core has a lower differential, I drilled my Electrify Solid with my favorite pin up layout to maintain its maximum flare potential: 65 x 4 ½ x 30. This ball beat my expectation mainly because I can use the Electrify Solid much more often than I thought I would. It is very easy to keep this ball on-line because of the lower differential. Also, this coverstock seems to be just right for me as it doesn’t seem to miss the mid-lane as much as some of the other bowling balls in this category. The Electrify Solid seems to take surface adjustments well, which makes it a more versatile ball. Cannot forget to mention that I am very surprised how well the Electrify Solid goes through the pins for me.

In my opinion, the Electrify Solid is best when the oil patterns get broken down and when there is a more defined “hook-spot”. I have successfully used this ball on longer patterns later in the blocks. I can also see this ball working pretty well on ‘house patterns’ mainly because of this core and coverstock combination, which should allow to blend the ‘over/under’ reaction a little more.

Since the announcement of the electrify line, i was waiting for the day they made an electrify solid. This electrify is wrapped in the reactor solid coverstock finished at 1500 polished. Which makes it for a controlled motion with still pop off the back end. This ball reminds me so much of the hustle ink, with just a little more in the mid lane. This is perfect ball for you if you're looking for a staple piece in your bag. Get to your local pro shop and drill one of these up, you won't be disappointed.

Storm Electrify Solid
#15.2
3.5" pin

Rt. hand
14 mph
PAP 4 9/16 1/4 over

Drilling: 5 x 4 7/8 x 60
Volume 38-41ft
THS, Kegel Challenge patterns

The new Storm Electrify solid is an absolute must on lighter patterns, burned up house shots and challenge patterns.  Smooth, predictable and easy to read.  Drilled this ball 60 x 4 7/8 x 30 with dual angles.  Left in out of box finish to start.  Its easily 3-4 boards less on the back than its Electrify Pearl counterpart.  Much earlier and smoother. Excellent ball to bounce the track with and keep angles in front of me.  For me its about 4 boards overall less hook than the 900 Global Burner solid. Shiny cover gets down the lane with ease. Electrify Solid utilizes the Circuit Core and the Reactor solid reactive cover and its an excellent combo for the price point.  Took a 3000 pad to the cover and it gave me an opportunity to play in heavier volume still keeping that smooth backend motion.  Benchmark ball for my slower speed.  Electrify line does not disappoint!

Storm Electrify Solid
Layout: 30 x 4” x 70

I had a specific intention in mind when drilling the Electrify Solid - I wanted a shiny ball that still had a smooth and predictable motion, and that is exactly what I got. To ensure that would happen, I drilled this ball pin down, which I rarely do anymore. Even with the weaker cover that it has, this ball still has enough midlane traction that I can use it on fresh medium conditions. It is a great option to have when stuff like the Spectre or Phaze 4 are a bit too clean and quick, though when I want to really move left, I'll switch to one of those two bowling balls; the pin down on the Electrify limits how far left I can move with it effectively.

The new bowling ball in Storm's Hot Line is the Electrify Solid.  The Electrify has a solid coverstock (Reactor Solid Reactive) and uses the Circuit Core.  This the second release as Storm released the Electrify pear.  For me the Pearl was a little over under for me at times.  With the lower diff (.030) and pear cover.  So with the Solid version for me and my roll it blends out the lane very well.  With solid it gives me great control.  Especially when they get a little dry, the Electrify Solid just rolls off of the friction.  Its a slower response ball when it sees friction.  I drilled mine with a 5 inch pin above middle finger.
As I think you need to drill the lower end balls fairly strong so you can get good use out of the lower diff core.   But just dont sleep on this ball being on one of Storm's lower end balls.  You get a lot bang for your buck on the Electrify Solid.

Electrify solid was a much-anticipated release and a welcomed one. With the weaker cover on a solid shinny ball we got a ball that is now smooth and predictable on those house shot and shorter challenge patterns. This ball has worked well for me on a typical house shot being a rev dominate player this ball helped me close up my angles and get a predictable motion
