The Storm Phaze V continues the success of the popular Phaze series of upper-mid performance bowling balls. This ball contains a strong Velocity Core with a low RG making it one of the most aggressive symmetrical bowling balls to date. This ball offers more revs, more power, and more control while maintaining consistency. This version targets power towards the backend, where power is most needed and is ideal on heavy oil conditions. The Reacta Gloss finish found on this bowling ball produces length and entry angle.

I am higher speed, rev challenged 220-250ish, high tilt, high rotation, and super low track player. The Phase 5 has definitely become one of my favorite newer releases. I drilled mine 5x3x2 and my axis point is 3 1/4 right and 7/8 up. The Phase 5 is a perfect addition to my arsenal because it allows me to ball down from my Exotic GEM, stay right, but still provides the same shape and continuation I need. This ball definitely does not disappoint and the Blueberry Crumble scent is amazing!

PAP - 4.5 over x 1 up
Layout - 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 x 2 3/8
Finish - Reacta Gloss

So my initial idea with drilling the Phaze V was something to take the spot of my Zen in the bag. Very similar drillings but since the RG is a little higher on the Phaze V we brought the pin a little closer to the PAP to try and mimic the little bit earlier/stronger ball motion the Zen provides. At box finish, the Reacta Gloss was a little too squirty in the oil so I decided to take a 2000 pad to it by hand and that certainly made the ball perform more to my liking. The ball still makes a very strong move off the dry, and enters the pocket with a nice heavy rolling motion which enabled a high carry percentage. Adding a little surface to the cover certainly fit my eye much better as the very late breaking "hockey stick" motion doesn't typically work the best for me and I tend to leave a number of single pins. Getting the Phaze V into a roll earlier, from front to back, yielded much better results. This will be a great ball for opening up your angles and circling the lane left to right especially on medium or slightly drier conditions.

Storm Phaze 5 review by Ethan Fiore

Lane Condition
Length: 40
Volume: Medium
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS

The Storm Phaze 5 is definitely a necessity! It has the well know R2S Pearl Cover with the Velocity Core, it is a great compliment to the Phaze 2 and Zen. Compared to the Phaze 4, I think the Phaze 5 is a little cleaner with more downlane motion. It is definitely weaker than the Zen but a great ball down from it. For all you players who have a higher rev and have problems controlling your ball reaction, this is the one for you!
