Just got this ball today and I am impressed. Drilled a mix between layout 2 and 3 on Storm's drilling paper that came with the ball. I am 13 and average around 160, but I see that going up. This ball on freshly oiled wood lanes hooks AND hits like a truck. I have medium revs and a medium ball speed(14-15)and on freshly oiled synthetics I have to move way in (35th board) to get it to stay in the 1-3 pocket. When this ball hits the pins the messengers have a real workout. I didn't leave solid 10's I left 9's and 7's. I own an El Nino Gold and the original Super Power, but nothing compares to the Pearl's Hook and hitting power. Anyone that wants a ball that will hook on many lane conditions needs one of these. This ball has better carry than my friends Trauma Recovery he got last week. I rate this ball 12 on a scale of 1-10!!!! Thanks for the Super Power Pearl Storm!!!!

First of all, this is an excellant site.Keep up the good work!!I've thrown my pwer pearl for 2 league nights,and I love it.I,m a medium to low rev tweaner,I like some hook with a strong backend.I wanted to go with lay out 2 but the ball came with 3 1/2 (apprx.)pin out. so cg is 2 1/2" behind my fingers& 1 5/8" (apprx.) right of center of my grip.Pin is 2" to right&1 1/4" in front of ring finger,with a 19/32 weight hole.This ball rolls up strong and predictible,if you've got aclean backend with no carry down hang onto your hat boys this ball is gone! After the oil moves and the pin deck starts getting sloppy,the power paerl will settle down some ,but will still hit strong as ever.My normal house unfortunately likes bumper bowling, flooded in the middle with the outside ten dry.I can,t wait to throw on some flat oil,I,m confident as ever power pearl won,t let me down.I used to be a columbia fan rage, outrage, and the first titanium, not any more thanks storm.  kev_roh@hotmail,com

I just got this ball from a friend of mine in the PBA and it works like a charm!  It is my first 15 pound bowling ball and from my 14 pounder balls to that 15 pound one, I can't feel a difference.  This ball, as long as you keep it shiny, will work great for dry lanes.

This ball was recomended to me as a ball that would manage dry heads and carry down, at the right pace it does, 16 MPH plus seems to do the trick, very consistent pin action.

i bought this ball last week. it's a second hand ball. Ball is pin out and drilled to go long on the lanes and snaps back hard, super polished it to give it more length. Expecting this to be played on dry conditons but it out hooks my Trauma Recovery on heavy oil. this ball is not designed for dry to medium lane but for heavy oiling. i plan to get an Eraser to help solve my problem on dry conditions.

Hi everyone, I bought this ball about a month ago, and it seemed to hook out of the house when i first threw it, but since having a few games on it it has been a great ball to go to when the heads are breaking down and the oil is carrying down. (oops sorry run on sentence, lol lol) i threw 17 in a row with it last night, and ended up shooting 961 for 4. 259, 279, 165, 258.....

drilled this one 5 X 4 (pin under fingers and cg kicked out).. more of a long and snappy drilling.. the ball went so long on are leagues normal pattern that it didnt hook up at all.. so i ruffed it up a bit with a green scotch-brite pad.. and ive loved it ever since.. it is definetly not for drier lanes though.. but polished this ball would be great on medium-dry lanes.. just a very snappy backend.. i should of gotten the solid version of the super power.. i rate this ball 8 outta 10

Ya I know - this is an "old" ball but I figured I would finally review it.
I have had this ball for over a yr and only recently did it make a return to my active arsenal. This ball is drilled stacked leverage with 2" pin and I was never impressed with it when I first got it, seemed to be too condition dependent and I rarely found it's condition. However, I was looking for something to use in the carry contest house that I bowl in, and I wasn't winning the contest if you know what I mean - usally leave an average of ten 10 pins/night. This is a typical house shot on synthetics with flood of oil in the middle. Well I took this, and a few other balls out of the basement and went to practice one day. Well this ball was by far the most impressive, 290 and 268 the 2 games I used it playing from 15 to 5. A few days later I brought it out during the league - 737...hmm not bad - my high series for the yr thus far. This past week was even better - 280-300-243 = 823. Only 3 10's, nice. The ball just kind of lopes through the heads - not looking all that impressive - and really stores the energy for the backeds.
 I think I found my goto for this league anyways.

Just like cosmo I have had this ball for about a year now and it had now returned to my bag.  I throw 17-19mph and about 18 revs.  I wanted something to have a power strong move on the backend.  So I brought it out for a H.S tourny on synthetics that are well oil but have very very good backends.  I have the ball drilled with the pin over my ring finger and the cg stacked under it.  This drilling provided me with excellent length and a great sharp move in the backs.  Its a great ball on all type of medium conditions but on oil you need to have hooking backends for this ball to be beneficial other wise it gets inconsistent and its break point and will squirt past the break in the oil.  Its a good ball for most house conditions but im not sure if it will work on the tougher conditions thrown at you...overall still a great ball by storm.

I bought this ball used from a friend of mine on the pro regional tour in the western division named Justin Clement.  This ball has been the best ball I've ever had.  Mine is 15 1/2 pounds and has a medium oil to medium dry pattern.

I decided to post a second review on this ball after being out of bowling for about a year.  I've been busy working out and practicing for baseball, which left little time for bowling, but I messed my arm up pitching and had to stop for a while.  After I let my arm heal for a couple of months, I decided to go bowling again, and this ball was my choice ball.  In my first game back in over a year, I bowled a 224.  This is maybe not that great for some people, but after being out for a year, it impressed me.  This ball reacted the same for following three games as it did the first.  Besides some bugs in my timing and release, it seemed as if I had never took a break from bowling.  The following three games I bowled 188,165, and 196.  I used to average around 160, but this season that will change.  This is a great ball for oily to dry lanes, and synthetic or wood.  After a year, IT STILL HITS LIKE A TRUCK!!  This ball is the number one ball in my arsenal, and will stay there for a long time.  Great backend reaction, and remains aggressive on heavier oiled conditions as well.  I recommend this ball to anyone who wants a great ball that will work on varying lane conditions.

When the cover stock is gone it's a piece of junk

I agree with sbrennaman and Enigma.  I've had this ball for almost 2 years, and decided to sand it a while ago.  After altering the original coverstock, the ball just doesn't hook as strong, hit as hard, and carry very well.  I still use this ball, only on light oil and when the heads are somewhat dry.

Hi , I got this ball sometime ago ( lol ,forgot to post a review on it here ) . Anyway , I'm a medium-low rpm bowler and apparently this ball didn't turn out very well for me at first . I first used it on a freshly oiled lane. ( OMG ! it just skid .. and skid .. and skid .. ( yea it DID snap back in the end but i only hit pin 6 ? lol .

But after awhile , and some practise with the ball ( Hmm. this ball is abit hard to get used to ), i find that on dry lanes , it hooks great ! Trust me , once you get the hang of it , this ball's a charm on oily lanes , it recovers well and hits like a Bulldozer ! ( lol i figured "Truck" was too much used ? )

On my opinion , i'd reccomand this ball to much of anyone who needs a ball that skids like crazy and hooks crazily towards the end.
