The Storm Fast Pitch is another addition to the already successful line of Pitch bowling balls in the Storm line up. The Fast Pitch introduces the Controll XL Solid Urethan coverstock and wraps it around the Tour Block weight block. This ball has a higher RG along with a medium differential that gets the ball to read the lane right where you need it to. This versatile bowling ball is a perfect mix of early read and entry angle when facing those drier and shorter lane conditions.

Storm Fast Pitch Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The new Storm Fast pitch is the latest Urethane addition to the Storm line. Obviously, the urethane balls have made a huge impact on the game of bowling the last couple years, and the Fast Pitch has quickly became my favorite. I've had a lot of success with the Pitch Black on multiple patterns and have noticed some differences with the Fast Pitch. I've drilled one Fast Pitch so far and really like it. I mapped it out as 4 x 3 and the surface is currently at 1000.

The easiest ball to compare the Fast Pitch against is the Pitch Black. The Fast Pitch still digs in the front like the Pitch Black, but it's definitely cleaner and more responsive down lane. I've been able to move left, keep my eyes right, and create some shape with the Fast Pitch. Also, the patterns I've been able to use the Fast Pitch on are all patterns with lighter volumes. It tends to blend the lane out front-to-back and the pocket becomes bigger with this ball.

If you need an excellent urethane ball in your bag, the Fast Pitch is what you should drill!

Length: 42'


Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


Likes:The new Fast Pitch is the latest urethane release from Storm.  The Fast Pitch features the Control XL solid urethane cover wrapped around the Tour Block core previously found in the Fever Pitch.  This core provides tremendous pin action for a urethane bowling ball.  The Fast Pitch comes factory finished at 1000 grit.  For me, this urethane ball fits right in between the Pitch Black and the Pitch Purple.  The Fast Pitch has a similar motion to the Pitch Black, however it does not start up as early as the Pitch Black.  When compared to the Pitch Purple, it has similar length but does not have as strong of a backend reaction as the Pitch Purple.  The Fast Pitch has the traditional urethane ball motion.  The Fast Pitch will be best used on short oil patterns where the Pitch Black is starting up just a few feet earlier than you would like.  The Fast Pitch will also allow you to play with closed angles up the outside of your typical house pattern where there is plenty of friction.  If you are a fan of urethane, this is a ball you need in your bag!

Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  400 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 Ĺ over and Ĺ up

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
VLS Layout:  5 x 4 x 2 1/2
Dual Angle Layout:  50 x 5 x 40

The Fast Pitch is another great urethane option from Storm.  The Fast Pitch is a touch cleaner in the front part of the lane than the Pitch Black and generates more backend.  Itís earlier than the Pitch Purple and slower.  It fits perfectly between.  If you need a urethane between the Pitch Black and Pitch Purple, the Fast Pitch is it!

Great addition to the Storm urethane lineup. Cleaner and a quicker responce then the Pitch Black. Sooner and not as quick as the Pitch Purple. Definitely has no trouble striking!!!!

Storm Fast Pitch - 50 x 3 3/8th x 40 - 2000 grit finish ( box is 1000 grit)
Controll XL Solid with Tour Block core
I LOVE this urethane ball!!! I had problems with the Pitch Black not having and recovery in the backend for me, it would be all "used" up for me when bowling on lighter volume patterns that are less then 40 ft. The Purple was better when getting through the front part of the lane and much better in the reaction in the back end, then comes along the FAST PITCH - I first changed the surface to 2000 grit with a ball spinner and found it very useful on 3 different patterns and closing the angles down to the breakpoints by keep the ball track between 12 to 6 on 37ft, 38ft and 39ft "adjusted" house patterns that we use for practice sessions for junior bowlers and sport shot bowlers. I used it on league 2 weeks ago for the first 2 games and used the Utah pored Hustle INK in the 3rd and it was the second best set I has all year so far. It will be the first ball out of my bag when I sub at another center that has HPL fronts and wood in back end. Very great choice also for some elderly bowlers that reactive covers are WAY too much for. Check your local pro shops to see when the Fast Pitch demo balls are there and give them a chance to impress you.

Storm Fast Pitch
Cover: Controll XL Solid Urethane
Core: Tour Block
Layout: 5 x 3 x 2 1/2

The Fast Pitch fills a urethane gap I had in my bag. The Pitch Purple (same layout) acts more like a lower end reactive ball with its response to friction and overall hook. My Pitch Black is super early which is fine when thatís needed. The Fast Pitch is more of a traditional urethane look. It isnít nearly as early as the Pitch Black and has less down lane motion than the Purple. Stormís current line of urethane balls should cover most bowlerís needs for the ongoing urethane craze.

Length: 40
Volume: Medium

The Fast Pitch is the newest urethane ball from Storm. As you know the Pitch Black and Pitch Purple are already staples in most Storm bowlerís bags, so this Fast Pitch will add another motion in that line.

When I reviewed the Fast Pitch on my YouTube channel, I of course had to compare it to those two other urethanes. The Fast pitch for me fit right in the middle of the two. The Pitch Black picks up in the front part of the lane, where as the Fast Pitch is a little cleaner and more responsive in the middle third of the lane. The Pitch Purple is the cleanest and most angular of the three, so I believe that this Fast Pitch is more similar to the Pitch Black.
