Storm Fight Review by Casey Murphy

Orientation:  Right Handed
Rev Rate:  375 RPM
Speed:  16-17 MPH
PAP:  4 5/8 straight across

Location:  Enterprise Park Lanes, Springfield MO
Pattern:  High Volume THS
Layout:  45, 5 Ĺ, 40

When I first caught a glimpse of the Iron Cross core (RG 2.62) I was VERY excited to throw the Fight.  When I finally got the opportunity I was not disappointed.  The Fight creates a backend motion Iíve never seen before.  The cover creates ample midlane roll, but somehow the fight takes a left turn you donít expect to see with a cover that strong.  The continuation the Fight produces is something you just donít see.  It needs some friction, longer patterns may cause the Fight to be too much on the end of the pattern, but most house patterns and most hooking sport patterns are going to match up VERY well to the Fight.  The Fight really has the perfect reaction.  Itís clean in the front part of the lane because of the high RG, but the cover picks up a predictable midlane roll, and the core shape/diff causes the it to tip down lane and continue over the 8 pin!  Youíre not going to believe your eyes when you throw the Fight, no one has created a reaction like this!

I wasn't sure what to expect from the Fight.  I have thrown it on Kegel, Sport and house patterns and have not been disappointed.  My initial reaction is it reminds me of the Marvel-S, but cleaner through the front.  I am amazed how much the Fight hooks.   

On almost every pattern I have used the Fight on, I was deeper with the Fight than I was with my Lock, Crux and Critical. When the Fight starts to hook, it doesn't stop.  With the high R.G. the Fight is clean enough through the front of the lane that you don't have to worry about it burning up.  It's hard to describe the motion the Fight makes, because it is unique.  It's clean through the front of the pattern, when it makes its move, it does with a heavy roll that continues down lane. 

The Fight is a ball that can be used on many patterns.  Probably won't be great for extremes, but most medium patterns from house to sport, the Fight will be the first ball out of my bag.

Layout: 4 x 4 x 3 Ĺ
Coverstock: 3000 grit
Lane conditions: 42 ft. house pattern with 2015 Flex with Fire and Ice conditioner
Test results:
Oh Boy! First off, when you open the box the first time the smell and look is awesome. It reminding me of my Roto Grip Odyssey back in 2007. Now for the actual testing. I found this ball to keep energy down lane that any other dull coverstock ball I have used in recent history. It did not read early on the front to mid part of the lanes on the burn and did not hook early off of the pattern on fresh. The core definitely help the ball get down the lane better and farther before it peeled off of the pattern. This ball is excellent on harder density lane panel, and handles the more modern conditioners out there. Thus, I have turn this ball into my benchmark Storm ball for newer lane panels that several local bowling centers have installed over the past few years.

The Storm Fight is part of the Thunder line, it features brand new symmetrical Iron CrossTM core, R4S Solid coverstock.

I drilled my Fight 4.5Ē x 5.5Ē. This put my pin just under my ring finger.

The Iron Cross core provides a good amount of midlane roll, and even though the R4S cover is solid, the Fight produces a lot of backend. I have thrown it on the 2015 USBC Open Championship team pattern, and a few different length and volume house patterns. When I first saw the specs of the Fight, I saw the shape and the super high RG numbers on the core (RG of 2.60 for 16 lbs!). I am glad I went with a pin-buffer on the higher side when drilling my Fight. I do not see much laboring, if any, out of the huge Iron Cross core. I love seeing cores rev up on the quicker side, so I am very happy to see that the Fight doesnít just lope down the lane. 

On the USBCOC team pattern, the Phaze was too angular at the end of the pattern on the fresh. Once the lanes transitioned and pushed some oil down, the Fight rolled well and really opened up the lane nicely. On the house shot however, the Fight with a 1,500 grit Abralon pad by hand created some ridiculous amount of area. It is a motion that was definitely missing in my bag and is the perfect shape to go with the Hyroads in the Thunder line.

I was somewhat disappointed in the amount of backend it had and amount of overall hook. I through it in practice just 5 shots and retired it to my bag for the night. However, in those 5 shots I was impressed with its carry.  It just looked different. I could see that once it stood up it was never going deflect.
If I could redrill it I would drill it a bit with a shorter pin to pap to help it start sooner. I might take it down to 1500 no polish and see if it looks better.
I do not want anyone to be discouraged by this review, I just want people who might think it is fairly strong that it is not... the look reminded me of an IQ tour. Smooth off friction.

The cover and core match up is really good here. The cover does what it was meant to do and really allow the ball to smoothly and consistently react through the pattern. There is a nice midlane read, even with the high RG, due to the cover strength. The ball never surprises you off the end of the pattern. I can tell you that there is also great drive through the pins.  Reaction is extremely consistent off the spot.

The Fight is eye candy that backs that up with substance.  It has a new core and coverstock, and the core is the largest weight block Storm has ever produced.  It has a very high rg at 2.62, but also has a high differential at .043, so it gives you easy length through the heads, while the solid cover and differential gives you traction in the midlane and a booming backend.  The Fight reminds me more of a solid version of the Hyroad than the Hyroad Solid did, it has many of the same characteristics of the Hyroad, but with more overall hook.  It's an absolute house shot killer that will come back from virtually anywhere.  It acts like a benchmark solid with more pop on the backend, and that allows you to open the lane up, or to continue to use this ball as the lanes transition and you're forced inside.  This ball will be great for strokers and crankers alike, as it gives strokers pop on the backend they don't usually have, and crankers length and recovery.  Put some Fight in your game!

Right Handed
Rev Rate -  400
Speed    - 17
PAP - 3 up 1 1/2

The new ball in the Thunder Line is the Storm FIGHT.  The Fight has all new core called
Iron Cross  which is the largest weight block Storm has ever developed.  Storm wrapped the Fight with the R4S Solid Reactive coverstock.  I drilled mine 5 1/4 x 4 x 2 3/4. 
The Fight even with a solid cover gets through the fronts pretty well with its high rg of 2.62, but picks up in midlane real well with the medium differential of .043.
For me its a different ball motion.  Its more like a benchmark ball, as its very controllable and stays online.  But Fight has a very heavy roll for me and continues through the pins.  Similar roll to the Marvel-S but cleaner through the heads.
If you looking for control and continuation then the Fight is the ball for you.

Likes: The storm fight is amazing!!! I put my favorite solid ball layout on it, 70*5.5*50, and I wasn't disappointed. It's so smooth with its motion. The higher rg really allows the ball to get through the front part of team lane and see team mids very well. I found it to be even better on tighter sport patterns. Very different shape I've not seen from a storm ball thus far.

The newest release into Stormís Thunder Line is the Fight.  The Fight features the largest weight block Storm has produced the Iron Cross.  The Iron Cross (2.62 RG) is surrounded by the R4S Solid Reactive coverstock.  I was surprised by how much the Fight picked up in the mid lane. 

I was able to throw the Fight against most of the bowling balls in the Thunder Line.  The first difference is how much the Fight reads the mid lane and the continuation is Phenomenal.  The Fight picks up where the HyRoad Solid left off.  The strength of the backend and mid lane control makes the Fight the strongest readable ball I have thrown so far.  It is stronger than an IQ Tour and the HyRoad.  The Fight adds early and strong to the Thunder Line.  The HyRoad Pearl, Sky Rocket and Rocket all want to get down the lane and then boom at the backend.  The Fight is just the opposite.  The Fight wants to get up and go but still strong enough to go through the pins with authority!  The Fight might replace my trusty IQ Tour as the first ball out of my bag on any given day!

Bring the Fight to your Competition!

Staffer: Keven Williams
Speed: 18 mph
Rev Rate: 450 rpm
Hand: Left Handed
Oil Pattern: Typical House Shot




The Storm Fight is unlike any bowling ball we have ever seen before! With that brand new core it gives you a shape that
no ball can mimic. The Fight is very clean in the front part of the lane and picks up a very heavy and continuous roll down lane.
Because the Fight hooks so much it can be used early on the "fresh" or very late in the day on the "burn". I recommend the Storm Fight
to anyone who likes long/smooth/continuous bowling balls.

Layout: 62.5 x 4.5 x 37.5 or 62.5 drilling angle, 4.5" pin, 37.5 val angle. I left it box finish and will end up with a weight hole on the axis to smooth it out. I have thrown it in box finish for right now.

The Fight gives me a benchmark reaction. My speed is somewhat softer so the higher RG lets it lope thru the front much easier. There is enough differential to give me some flare and it is about 4-5" across but not wide/wide stripes but more like tighter flares (control). I am dead on 1 oz of side so I will weight hole it to get legal but to also get it to back off a little more for me. The Fight was very continuous on the back end and forced me a little farther left than I would have expected. I see the Fight being very versatile for someone who wants to control the shape more themselves and could easily be a ball that you have 2-3 of (one shined, one dull, one really dull and high flare potential).
