Drilled my HR Prostock out of the box Shined and drilled with 4 3/4" Pin down with cg kicked about 1" to the right no hole.

This balls flat out rolls through the midlane and makes a suprisingly hard move on the backend for a inexpensive ball. Ball will not like broken down heads but you can wheel it and it will make it back. I can't believe how strong this ball is in the midlane and its keeps coming on the back. Great bang for the buck. I can't wait to drill one pin up over the fingers at about 5" or 5 1/2" to help it get down the lane a bit further before making the corner to the pocket.

14lb. about a 2-3inch pin, cg about 1 1/4 from the center of my palm and down a little bit.
Pin 4 3/4's from my axis, cg 4 inch's from my axis. x-hole on my PAP. 5 3/4s over 3/8s up.(pap)

Great ball! Goes kind long then just comes like a mother. not skid/snap but a strong arc. The monsoon cover stock grips the lane real well on med oil. When I hit high it does not carry well but other then that it carries good. I can use this ball all night long, carrydown does not affect the reaction for me. This is a great money ball. My 1st Storm ball but defiantly not my last.

Drilled my HRPS with a 5" pin to PAP (under the middle finger), with the cg swung out to the right in about a 60 degree angle, or about 4 oclock to the pin.

This ball had a 4" pin out with 3.68 top weight before drilling.

This ball is very strong, good length on fresh oil, with a great back end move.  This ball reminds me alot of the Eraser Blaze.  

I think this ball could be used by anyone.  Pretty good all around ball.  Your extreme conditions maybe not, there are better choices.

Straight players will like this on mediums, to some dry lanes, keep the ball polished.  Could use this on some heavy oil with a little surface added to the ball with say, scotch brite.

Tweeners will really love this ball, because it will help them create some good entry angle when playing inside 4th arrow.  Box shiny for most conditions, surface for some heavier oil.

Crankers will get alot out of this ball also, high speed guys might want to add some surface.

This ball rolls very well, reads what is on the lane consistently.  Has that classic Storm length and back end move.  Hits very hard.  Like another poster said, I can't wait to drill another to see what I can get out of this ball!!

Good bang for the buck, another user friendly Storm ball!!!

I drilled my Pro Stock up a few weeks ago and I have had some good success with it. I drilled mine aggressive with the pin just off the ring finger and the Mass Bias in my PAL line. With this drilling it rolled the length of the lane. I decided to take some of the surface off making it a little more aggressive on the backend. I've been mainly bowling on oil with it and it cuts through the oil and carry very well. It's too strong for wet/dry conditions comes in to sharp, but on oil it just awesome.

I drilled mine with the PIN above the ring finger and CG below
the ring finger. Slightly shiner than box surface.

This ball is awesome!  

On a fresh medium oil lane condition, it reads the front and mid parts of the lane extremely well. This ball reacts very strong late without it overreacting. It hits really hard and still keeps the pins low.  My first two series out of the box with this beauty was 752 and 771.  This ball is a must have for every arsenal.

This ball is a good backend ball for its price. personally I would spend the little extra cash for a stronger ball such as "the vertigo" or "absolute inferno", but for its price its a nice ball, but not the ball i want in my hand on those slick / heavy oil conditions

Despite having 4.5 inches of pin (got took on ebay) this ball is too flippy on breakdown and doesn't recover on carrydown making this particular ball lane specific.  Maybe I'll buy another one.(maybe not)  The carry is so so ( I leave a lot of 7's or 10's) and it's very inconsistant depending on lane condition.  I like predictable balls and this isn't thay type of ball for me.  I'm a 200avg bowler so I can find ways to score with this ball if need be via hand position.  I also like balls that make me do as little work as possible.  This isn't one of those balls either.

     I had this ball about 5 months now. I am a high rev,high speed bowler.  I had this ball drill to go very long but it is still too flippy for me I tried playing different angles making all kinds of adjustments but this ball still flips too hard. but when i would get this ball in the pocket 10 pin mania started.  now i am going to get rid of this waste of money and pick up another RULE. at least THE RULE carrys better.


                    I give this ball a 5 out of 10

Now this is a ball I like.  Put the pin over the fingers and cg just below, polished it up some.  It roll very well.  It has some trouble on the fresher house shots, but once the heads carry down some it rolls like a champ.  This ball is very skid flippy.  I can actually move left and carry with this ball.  This ball also works well when you have a puddle in the middle of the lane.  I can tighten up and get just enough pop out of it to carry.  This ball has stayed in my bag for a while now.  

Good Luck and Good Bowling,
Michael
