Infinite Physix
« on: July 15, 2022, 05:01:13 PM »
Storm is pushing the limits of science and performance with the high-performance Storm Infinite Physix. This bowling ball pairs the ReX Coverstock with the Atomic core to provide the perfect amount of traction and control when bowling on various lane conditions. The Atomic Core works for the bowlers due to its center-heavy shape making it less likely to change directions.

Color: Sapphire/Deep Purple/Onyx
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: Rex Pearl Reactive
Core: Atomic
Finish: 4000-grit Abralon
RG: 2.48 (based on 15# ball)
Differential: 0.053 (based on 15# ball)
Recommended Lane Condition: Heavy Oil
Fragrance: Mystery Scent

Hey everyone, I'm back with another ball review, and this time it's for the Storm Infinite Physix and In 15 pounds this ball is wrapped in the REX Pearl Coverstock and comes 4000-grit polished with an RG of 2.48, Diff of .053, and a PSA of .017 with a layout of 3.5X4X2.5.
This ball right here hit me in all the feel good spots after just one throw. WHY? Well I have been a huge fan of the OG Physix and this one was everything I enjoyed about throwing that ball, but with one difference. That is that the Infinite comes with some teeth being to me a duller version of that OG Physix. There were times that I wished that I had a stronger version and this ball is it. I use this ball a lot around town as we have some higher friction centers and even on the fresh I can use balls like this one. I do find that if I needed a ball with a touch more reaction I can use an IDOL Cosmos and as soon as I need to ball down this one is it. This ball is perfect for all styles of players and will develop some great numbers.
BOWLER STYLE: RH - Power Stroker Rev Rate: 320 Ball Speed: 15-16 PAP: 4 7/8 right 5/8 up.

Infinite physix

The infinite physix is factory finish at 4000 and compared to the past physix line of balls especially the original physix this is the most smoothest one out of the bunch. I honestly didnít think I would like it because I was so used to the original physix that was really strong down lane but I do enjoy using the infinite physix when I need something thats smoother on the fresh and not so jumpy. I donít have the original physix anymore and I wish I did BUT based on what I remember the infinite physix would be about 5-6 boards weaker in a good way so it would compliment each other very well. With the layout 4 3/4 x 5 x 2 puts the pin just above my ring finger and mass bias just left of my thumb. I get good length and a not so jumpy back end like the IQ Tour solid but stronger for more oil

Being left handed I donít deal with a lot of ďjunkĒ per say especially during league so depending on the day and weather I can pull this one out when I need more control. I bowl at a house with Brunswick lanes with some pretty high friction but with good head oil and volume so the balls do get down lane very well and can use almost anything if you play the lanes right so a smooth ball like this compared to the other physixs is a good ball to have in your arsenal

The Physix line is back! Storm Bowling is introducing the all the new Infinite Physix. Bringing back the original Physix Core wrapped with the REX Pearl coverstock; the same coverstock found on the Dark Code. Huge fan of the Dark Code and absolutely loved the original Physix, so it only makes sense to get this one! This ball for me is going to fit right above the Dark Code.

During the transition period in tournaments, if I am caught in between my solid symmetrical options and my asymmetrical pearl options, because the phsyix has enough core and cover to really dig into the lane, this ball is going to be my first option during that transition period. Especially on the national tour, we bowl on so much volume that a pearl this strong is necessary for the first transition.

The Physix line has returned and it's time to get your hands on one. Stop by your local Storm VIP Pro shop and get yours today!

Storms new addition to the Premier line the brand new Infinite Physix! This ball features the ReX Pearl Reactive Coverstock wrapped around the Atomic Core!

One of my favorite balls has been my Dark Code, which also has the ReX Pearl cover, so when I heard they were putting it on the new Infinite Physix I had to get one, and I was not disappointed. This has been my go to ball for both house and sport shots. This ball has no trouble getting through the heads, very predictable in the mid lane with a strong smooth back end. For me it is a stronger Dark code with a smoother, but strong backend reaction.

Infinite Physics this ball goes. Wrapped in the REX Pearl Coverstock this ball gets down lane pretty well but for me when it sees the lane it goes and keeps on going. This ball is a hook monster for me. Love to use this when I want to open up the lane and really wing it. For me this has been a great ball for sport shots. This ball is perfect for heavier oil lane conditions.

Storm Infinite PhysiX
Coverstock: ReX Pearl (4000 Grit)
Core: Atomic Core
RG: 2.48, Diff: 0.053, PSA: 0.017 (15 lbs)
PAP: 5 3/16 over x 5/8 up
VLS Layout: 3 5/8 x 5 1/4 x 1 5/8
Dual Angle Layout: 65 x 3 5/8 x 30
Location: Prairie Lanes, Sun Prairie WI
Pattern: Medium volume THS

The Storm Infinite PhysiX is the most recent addition to the PhysiX line.  It shares the same strong and dynamic Atomic core as each other PhysiX balls, but this one is wrapped in the ReX pearl cover with a 4000-grit Abralon finish. The ReX pearl coverstock first made its debut on the Dark Code.  Iím a huge fan of the original PhysiX, and while the Astro and Proton were, and still are, great balls, they didnít see much use for me. Likewise, the Dark Code was very over/under for me, so when the Infinite was announced with the 4000-grit ReX pearl cover, I knew I was going to put the same layout on it as my Dark Code in hopes that I could see a similar shape but even out the backend reaction. Needless to say, that decision has worked out perfectly.

The Infinite is similar in strength to the Dark Code, but it gives me a slightly rounder and strong continuous shape on the backend as opposed to the skid/snap I was getting with Dark Code. The Infinite is a fantastic high-end ball thatís one step down from the hook monsters like Proton PhysiX or Super Nova, but is stronger than something like the Nova. Itís often the first ball out of my bag for league as bit blends the wet/dry really well. I canít recommend it enough if youíre looking for a high-end ball that youíd be able to use the entire night for league and is a good ball to transition into on sport patterns once the lanes open up a bit and you still need a stronger piece.

I drilled up 2 of these one pin up at about 65 x 4.5 x 30 and the other pin down at 50 x 4.5 x 70. I have thrown both at box finish to see the differences. The pin under is slower and is more like a hook and set reaction. The pin up has became a go to ball for me on medium to medium/heavy conditions and longer patterns. The Infinite has a good solid backend motion for me on those patterns and I may drill a third one with a much higher pin buffer to see if it will finish strong when I have to move inside deep.

Storm Infinite Physix Ball Review

Bowler Stats:
Speed: 15.5 MPH
Rev Rate: 300
Tilt: 3-5 degrees
Axis Rotation: 60 degrees
PAP: 5 ⅜ over 1 ľ up

When any ball in the Physix line is released I am excited to drill it and see how it performs on the lanes. One of my favorite balls is the original Physix and I have drilled every release in the line since my game matches the ball motion of the core and any cover combination. With the latest release the Infinite has the REX cover that is on the popular Dark Code, but instead of 1500 plus polish as the finish it is 4K with no polish. I drilled the Infinite with a 5 inch pin and a VLS layout of 5 X 41/2 X 23/4.

The REX pearl gives me the length I need as a low rev rate player and a quicker more continuous reaction off the end of the pattern. For me it is a versatile addition to my arsenal and compliments the Proton Physix. If the Proton is reading the pattern too early instead of balling down I can use the Infinite instead. I have had success using it on multiple house conditions around the Tampa area and out on the PBA 50 Tour on the Mark Roth 42í and Billy Hardwick 44í patterns.

The newest addition to storms Physix line, the Infinite Physix, is going to be one that you wonít wanna miss. This ball has a great even roll that will help players of all calibur blend out a tougher pattern. The Infinite Physix is wrapped in the ReX Pearl Coverstock with a 4000 grit finish. This combination allows the ball to get through the front part of the lane, rev up, and go through the pins like no other Physix storm has released! Go out and get yours today!

Storm Infinite Physix review by Brian Watson

Lets start to say I'm a big fan of the Storm Physix line which has been a successful line for Storm.  Storm used the Rex Pearl coverstock with the Atomic Core.  I drilled mine with my standard pin down layout, 5 x 4 x 4.  I also applied Storm step 2 to the surface as our house shots are on the drier side.  I was real impressed on the length i got out of the Infinite even being Asymmetrical.  Also the response time downlane was rather quick and this ball doesn't bog down like some bigger asymmetricals.  The infinite is ball down from Gem and Proton.  But a ball up from the Phaze 2 and stronger than a Reality or reality check.  As the Beef and Barnzy show says weekly on their show with ball recommendations they suggest the Infinite and use your favorite layout!
I have drilled the Infinite for variety of bowlers, down and in players and high rev guys. Both styles were very pleased with the reaction from the Infinite!

PAP - 4 up 1 1/8
MPH - 16-17
Tilt  -   17
RPM - 400

Great Addition the Storm Line!

Another great addition to the Physix line.  The Infinite is a step down for me from the big balls. Proton, Gem, Reality etc..... It's cleaner threw the front with a more continuous backend shape. Stronger for me then the Dark Code but not as angular.

Infinite PhysiX:

ReX Pearl coverstock (Used on the Dark Code)

4000 grit

Asymmetric Atomic core---2.48 RG, .053 differential, .017 intermediate differential--15 pounds.

The Infinite is stronger than I expected. I expected a longer/more angular version of the original Physix...I got longer/more angular/overall stronger.

Infinite is stronger on the backend than the Proton, a couple boards less overall.

The Infinite looks like a longer/more angular Dark Code to me.

If I needed a touch more length than my Nova gets, I could go here. If I need a little less than my Reality, this works,

This is a pearl that can be the first ball out of the bag on any heavy house shot league.

The Infinite Physix is my most hated ball of all time. I am fully willing to accept I personally got a lemon. However, my teammate also picked up an Infinite and we have had identical experiences with our balls. Frustrating, erratic, unpredictable, weak. The Infinite Physix literally does the opposite of what you want it to do every shot and is spectacular at creating new ways to confound and befuddle you as a bowler. I bought this ball upon release and was extremely excited about it when it first came out. I am an asymmetrical pearl fanatic. I have maybe 30-40 games on mine, pull it out every three months or so to see if I’m crazy. And it winds up going back to my ball graveyard as I can’t believe it’s even worse then I remembered. On the positive side, it is probably the best smelling Storm ball I’ve ever experienced. I wish I didn’t hate it so much as it smells incredible and always makes my bag and car smell nice when I decide to give it another try.


Pros


- Incredibly loud Blueberry smell that is quite delightful and will envelope in a nice way any environment you have it in.


- The Blue color scheme of this ball is pretty cool.



Cons


- Holy hell, where do I begin with this brick? As I said in the introduction, I bought it when it first came out and give it another try every few months. And I always come away astonished at just how bad and how much worse it is then I remembered it.


- Completely erratic movement. Sometimes it’ll give you too much. Sometimes not enough. But will usually disappoint and frustrate you by doing the opposite of what you intended.


- One of the lightest and weakest balls going through the pocket I have ever seen. You will laugh out loud at the singles and the bizarre splits this ball leaves. Playing with it just a few days ago, I smacked the pocket from multiple different angles dead flush just to leave single, corner pins and splits from hell. I am not sure why this ball is so weak but I’ve never seen anything quite like it before.


- I don’t like the shape of it very much. When I think of an asymm pearl, I think of a hockey stick motion of straight through the fronts and mids then exploding left when the ball finds friction. The Infinite however is little more continuous than you would think with bizarre erratic movements that are either sometimes too weak or sometimes too strong. The core kind of sluggishly powers this ball into a lazy roll that often will deflect or go through the pins in an odd way. However, at slower speeds, the core will suddenly take off leading to extremely sharp heavy asymm movements that are difficult to control.


- My experience with this ball is that it's extremely unforgiving, you have to throw it just right, the way it wants to be thrown, or you're going to have a bad time. My Infinite bricks, cannon balls and poops out with a lazy weak motion when trying to dial up the speed of it. Yet gets extremely erratic the slower you get with it. So lazy and weak ball motion with higher speeds and erratic "WTF?" type motion at slower speeds.


- With the odd not quite angular and not quite continuous ball motion, I'm at a loss of what I'm supposed to do with this ball. Up the gutter or stroking off of the right ten on the lane, this ball doesn't have a sharp enough break to cut through the pins like you would think an asymm pearl would. Yet the ball is lazy and doesn't have enough natural horsepower to be that effective cranking it left of 20. I guess if you're a lower speed player who is in that 13-14mph range, this ball might fit you? But every angle I play with this ball, there's another ball that does it much better.


- The 4k fast finish of the Infinites is a very cool intriguing idea. Having a ball that will retain it’s out of box motion as it settles to it’s natural grit is an unbelievably awesome idea. However this ball is so erratic that I don’t know what to make of the finish. Out of desperation, just to try something different, I hit it with a 1000 pad. But this just seemed to magnify all the problems with this ball.



To conclude this review, my Infinite’s bridge just cracked after a minimal amounts of games, leading to the end of the career of the worst ball I’ve experienced so far. I had this experience with my Infinite and my teammate has this experience with their ball. I feel like the UC2 does what the Infinite is trying to do, just Infinitely better. However, I have seen pros on television make it look good. I also have another teammate who bought an Infinite much later then we did, who has made his look good on occasion. I’ve seen noted ball reviewers say the Infinite is the best ball of the year… which blows my mind. So I’m willing to accept maybe the first early releases of this ball were lemons or there was some freak act of God occurrence why this ball was so awful for us. But still, the Infinite Physix will go down in my memory as the worst ball I’ve ever thrown until (God forbid) something even worse comes along I get suckered into buying.


Plz no bully.  :)
