Super Son!Q
« on: February 27, 2019, 03:03:27 PM »
The Storm Super Son!Q features the Centripetal HD Core which is the offspring of the original Centripetal Core. The core family has provided one of the most dominant shapes in the Storm line of bowling balls. The Centripetal HD Core is denser than any other Storm core so far. This density produces an RG of 2.47 which creates a very low center of gravity which allows this ball to hit the pins at just the right spot to maximize pin carry. To top off this core Storm covered this ball with the proven NRG Hybrid Reactive coverstock and is finished with a 3000 grit Abralon sanding.

All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: NRG Hybrid Reactive

My stats are in my profile.

I drilled my SUPER SON!Q up 4.75 x 55 which puts the pin in my ring finger. This is a layout I like to use when I'm going from a strong asym ball and a strong asym pearl is too over/under to use yet. This payout on a strong ball gives me some time until the lane lets me get to my HALO PEARL or even further down to my SON!Q.

I may drill a second one to be like my SON!Q which has a layout of 5 x 40 and is more versatile for me on house. The SUPER would give me a ball to start a little more into the oil line until we blow a hole in the track and need to ball down to the SON!Q.

Drill this one up for control and early smooth read.

Just got back from the Open Championships and I can tell you, this ball was THE go-to for me this year. If you’ve bowled the OC’s, you know what a FLAT pattern looks like. For most, (even pros) these patterns are head-scratchers to say the least. So for me, I needed something to keep me in play. Something that didn’t over-read the short pattern and something that wouldn’t blow through the long.

I laid this out with a 4 ¼ x 5 ¾ x 3 ½. This is the same layout I have on my original Son!Q and I love the way the position of this core shapes. Like my Physix, the cover helps me out by slowing it down toward the end of the pattern. Like my Son!Q, the core position helps the ball curve and roll more forward. At the OC’s where speed kills and grabbing it will having it wave at the headpin as it goes by, this ball kept me in the game on both patterns. I used it more toward the end of teams (shorter pattern) and more in the middle of Singles and Doubles (longer pattern).

I only have a handful of games with it on a house shot. In the house I bowl in the most, there simply isn’t enough oil to use this ball very long. Like any new dull surface ball, early friction just kills the reaction. So, if you bowl on a lighter volume house pattern, be mindful of that.

For the first time since the IQ Tour Fusion, we have a new hybrid in the Master line with the Super Son!Q.  The Centripetal HD core from the Son!Q is back, but this time with a much stronger cover formula in NRG Hybrid.  The result is an earlier and smoother ball but with the very distinct roll from the Son!Q.  While the Super will cover heavier volumes due to the stronger cover, given the difference in shape, I found the Super and the original to cover a similar amount of boards overall, they just do it in different ways.  When confronted with volumes in excess of 25ml, you’ll begin to see more separation between the two reactions, but on a house shot, they’ll play similar lines.  The Son!Q will be longer and stronger, while the Super will be earlier and blend the backend reaction much more, so they are great compliments for each other.

The Storm Super Soniq is a great addition to the master line. The first hybrid we've had since the IQ Fusion. I drilled mine 45 x 5.5 x 30 gives me length and control down lane I need. Compared to my Soniq this ball reads much faster and more controllable off the spot. This is a great ball to add to your lineup and is one of the first balls out of my ball.

Storm Super Son!q
Layout: 60 x 4 ½ x 35

The Storm Super Son!q is a midlane-heavy beast that needs oil in the front part of the lane, but is great when the lanes are heavily oiled or the pattern is long.  The amount of midlane roll that this ball possesses rivals other heavy oil balls in the Storm lineup, such as the Crux Prime, but the Super Son!q has a smoother reaction off the end of the pattern. It is a great ball to start on fresh heavier league patterns, and then transition to other balls, such as the original Son!q, when the lanes start to dry up a bit.

Compared the the Storm Crux Prime, the overall amount of hook is similar, but I was more comfortable throwing the Crux Prime once I got further left, due to the directional change of the asymmetric core. The rolly nature of the symmetric core in the Super Son!q allows it to be smoother at the break point.

I was looking for a ball that I could go to when my Physix was too much and my IQ Tour just wasn’t quite enough. (All 3 of these balls are drilled pin up) The Super Son!Q has fit the bill and more than exceeded my already high expectations. The Physix is one of my all-time favorite balls so when I heard the Super SON!Q was going to utilize the same cover stock I wanted to jump all over it!

Just in throwing it on a THS (Typical House Shot) in league I have loved how clean the ball is through the first part of the lane.  It rolls really heavy for me through the midlane and since our house pattern is soiled with a little more oil than most, the ball really blended the wet/dry very well through the end of the first game and beginning of the second. This ball LOVES oil! Although the Super Son!Q is really “strong” for me, I never felt it was uncontrollable. I never felt it “jump” at the end of the pattern when it hit friction. This allowed me to make calculated moves very quickly and not miss the transition.  This is the strongest symmetrical ball I have in my bag and it is filling a huge hole that I have needed to fill for a while.

All in all, even though I have had success with the SON!Q in league on a THS, it will also have a spot in my tournament bag as well for a long time to come.
