The Storm Super Son!Q features the Centripetal HD Core which is the offspring of the original Centripetal Core. The core family has provided one of the most dominant shapes in the Storm line of bowling balls. The Centripetal HD Core is denser than any other Storm core so far. This density produces an RG of 2.47 which creates a very low center of gravity which allows this ball to hit the pins at just the right spot to maximize pin carry. To top off this core Storm covered this ball with the proven NRG Hybrid Reactive coverstock and is finished with a 3000 grit Abralon sanding.

Color: Black/Orange/Purple
All colors do vary somewhat from the picture shown
Coverstock: NRG Hybrid Reactive
Core: Centripetal HD Core (14#-16#), Centripetal Core (12#-13#)
Finish: 3000-grit Abralon
Recommended Lane Condition: Medium-Heavy Oil
RG: 2.47 (15# ball)
Differential: 0.047 (15# ball)
Fragrance: Sweet Plum

The super SoniQ features the same centripetal HD core found in the original SoniQ, but it now wrapped in an NRG hybrid cover. This allows for the super SoniQ to create a little more traction in the front part of the lane, blending out harder shots a little better. I was a big fan of the original SoniQ, but thought it was a little under powered due to how weak the cover was. I drilled both my Super SoniQ and SoniQ identical, 50x5x50, which for me puts the pin almost right above my bridge center. For this video, I decided to bowl on a very challenging almost completely flat 40’ sport shot. The topography on this pair allowed me to stand a little farther left than usual, and gave me a few boards to work with downlane. Since the middle part of this pattern is so flat, I really had to focus on not hitting up on the ball as much as usual. The super SoniQ blends out this fresh condition very well, giving me a few boards downlane to hit while still striking. When compared to the SoniQ, the super is 2-3 birds stronger, and a few feet earlier downlane.

Layout: 25 x 5.5 x 40
My PAP: 5” straight over
Axis Tilt: Between 3 and 8 degrees
High Track Player

Intent for this ball/layout: Wanted to take advantage of the lower RG and get this ball to rev up quickly yet still make a strong move towards to pocket once it exited the pattern. Ideally to use on higher volume or longer sport shots.

What I got: First let me start by saying WOW. This ball motion is absurd. I can not remember the last time I saw a ball like this make the kind of motion that this one makes. I have thrown it a few times now in league and on longer sport shots.
•   House Shot: The fresh cover is STRONG. First time I pulled it out I could not use it the first game of league because the backends were too clean. The ball just did not want to layoff. Waited until there was a little carry down in game two to use it. Moved 7 left and just opened the entire lane up. Ended up shooting 279, 299 to end the set. It did not matter how deep into the lane I got the ball just kept coming back for more.
•   43ft 2018 US Open Pattern: The longer heavier pattern is what I originally wanted this ball for and it did not let me down. I was able to move right into the track area and the balls strong cover and core read the midlane beautifully creating the exact shape that I needed for this pattern.
Get this ball in your bag ASAP. You will not be disappointed. Bowl up a storm! #StormNation

The Super SonIQ will be the perfect transition ball for when the lanes begin to dry up in the fronts and you're looking for a litle bit of float through the front yet control downlane.

I did bowl on the fresh with it when I did the video and it wasnt the best enviornment at that given time for me to throw this ball on. I had a bit of over/under although when a few games went by I jumped back into the Super SonIQ and I found a lot more margin of error with the ball.

I can see this ball being a great game 2 ball to go to when I need a little bit of extra skid to get through the initial part of the lane without the ball burning up. You'll be able to play tighter lines with this ball at that point, which is something I typically like to do.

For those a fan of the IQ series balls this will be another great addition to the bag.

Length: 41ft

Volume: medium

Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc): THS


The new Storm SuperSoniq is going to be one of those balls where people either hate it or love it in my opinion, no in between. Using the same core as the original Soniq but with a stronger hybrid cover, Storm has created one of the strongest symmetrical balls to date. Compared to the original Soniq, the SuperSoniq is going to be much sooner and stronger overall. I wasn't a huge fan of the original Soniq simply because of where it made its shape down lane. It was too clean for me for how it wanted to turn the corner down lane. So adding a stronger earlier cover to it matched my game much better. I chose to go with a 45*5.25*75 layout, which has the pin below my fingers on my center line. I did this because I have so many other strong balls with pins above my fingers that I wanted this one to be significantly different and thats what I got!!!! I threw the SuperSoniq up against my original Soniq, Crux Prime, Phaze2, and Physix. The SuperSoniq is earlier and stronger than the Soniq, really really close to the Crux Prime in both where it picks up and how strong it is. Biggest difference I saw was the SuperSoniq continued just alittle more than the Crux Prime. Its earlier than the Physix and not near as much continuation down lane and alittle less overall. Compared to the Phaze2 its overall a stronger ball with a similar shape on the lane.
The SuperSoniq definitely will need some oil for it to be really effective. I threw it on the fresh condition and also after I had beat the lanes up a good bit with all the balls going down the lane, while it was till usable when the lanes really started to hook I could see it start to want o pick up and smooth out just a little bit.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this ball !!!!!

I drilled it at 60x3 3/4x40 and it is the perfect fit between my Code X and my Crux Prime.  It gives me the versatility of the Code X with the hitting power of the Crux. 

I can't say enough great things about this ball :)

Storm Super SoniQ

The Storm Super SoniQ (SS) is a blend of the Centripetal HD core found in the Soniq, with the NRG Hybrid cover found on the PhysiX. The NRG Hybrid coverstock has been a great addition to the Storm line. It is a strong cover that can handle heavy oil but has just enough pearl in the blend to not read “Super” early… see what I did there? haha

The intent of this ball was to be the ball to build a bridge between the Premier and Master lines and also compliment both the Physix and the original SoniQ. I think the Super SoniQ does that, but more importantly, I think it is a strong enough ball to stand on its own. The SS actually reminds me a lot of the Phaze II (P2), which is still a great selling ball and hugely popular on the PBA Tour. The Phaze II is the closest comparison ball for me to the Super SoniQ, and with a similar layout I have the Super SoniQ cleaner through the front with noticeably more shape down lane. They are roughly close in overall strength, but the P2 is definitely earlier and smoother.

The SS is a great fit when you need a shape stronger than your typical benchmark ball but not nearly as early as some of the high-end pieces.

Storm Super Son!Q

Centripetal HD Core

NRG Hybrid Cover

The new Master Line ball, the Super Son!Q is will be a benchmark for bowlers that see a medium-heavy oil house shot.

Strength----Closest comparison for my is the Physix . For me the Super Son!Q was a perfect step down from the Physix. I touch weaker, a touch earlier than the Physix, the Super Son!Q is a perfect compliment.

Shape---This one ended up being a later midlane, smooth shape for me. Maybe a foot earlier than the Physix with a smoother roll. The best comparison may be with the IQ tour, with the Super Son!Q being a stronger step up. The smooth roll will make this ball a benchmark for a lot of players.

Perfect fit between the Physix and IQ Tour!

When the Super Soniq was announced, I was SUPER excited for it (Pun Intended) because its Centripical HD Core is wrapped in the same cover as the PhysiX. The Physix is always one of the first balls out of my bag due to its versatility and I am excited to have a symmetrical version now.
For me the original Soniq is one of the strongest balls I have ever thrown. Believe it or not he Super Soniq is STRONGER, if that was even possible. It is literally hook in a box.
The orange color really stands up in the midlane and drives hard through the pins. I LOVE to see that. If you can control the midlane, you can control the pocket. This ball will be perfect for the heavier volume lane conditions and the super walled house patterns. The heavy midlane roll will blend the wet/dry lane conditions for league bowlers while providing a good ball down from the Physix on harder conditions. Discretion: Players with high rev rates and or low ball speed should consult with their local Storm VIP PSO before drilling. This ball is STRONG.
In the comparison the original Soniq appears to be “stronger” but this is only due to its violent response off of the friction downlane. Overall the Super Soniq is about 2-3 more boards overall if there was more oil on the lane.

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:  50, 4 7/8, 70

The Super SONIQ is a SONIQ on steroids.  If you loved the SONIQ motion but needed a stronger cover, that’s EXACTLY what the Super SONIQ provides.  It’s going that same quick rev’ving motion with the controlled continuous backend.  But it features the NRG Hybrid covers so it’s much much earlier than the original.  The Super SONIQ is the perfect step up from the SONIQ.

Storm Super SoniQ
Layout: 4 x 4 x 1 Storm Pin Buffer Layout
Rev Rate: 300 rpm, 7 degree of axis tilt, 40 degree of axis rotation
Testing information: 41 foot THS (medium to light volume)
Bowling Center: Fulton Bowling Center
Kegel Machine – Brunswick Anvilane

The Storm Super SoniQ utilizes the Centripetal HD Core and the NRG Hybrid Coverstock used originally on the PhysiX.  The aim here was to fill the reaction slot between the Storm Phase II and Storm Tour IQ.  We have success!  The Super SoniQ is a little longer than the Phase II and more continuous off the end of the pattern.  The Super SoniQ is definitely a step up in strength from the Tour IQ.  It gives bowlers a good blend of midlane and backend.

Volume: High
Type (THS, Sport Pattern etc):THS
Rev Rate: 450
Ball Speed: 17 mph
PAP: 5 1/16 x 3/4 up

Introducing the Super Soniq, the newest release in the Master line. Here we have the Centripetal HD Core, first introduced in the Soniq, but now with the NRG Hybrid cover. For me this ball fits perfectly between the Physix and Soniq. It's cleaner then the Physix but picks up earlier and smoother then the Soniq. I used one of my favorites layouts, 5 1/2 x 4 x 2, which puts the pin above my middle finger. This has quickly become the first ball out of my bag because of how controlled and predictable it is. It also earned a spot in my bag for sport patterns along side my trusty IQ Tour Solid. Stop into your local VIP pro shop and pick one of these bad boys up.

The original Son!q was a personal favorite when it was released so I was excited when this ball was announced. I decided to go with the drilling which my PAP makes the pin under my middle finger. The cover on the ball is STRONG and the continuation is even STRONGER. From the videos I watched and the specs on this ball I knew this was going to be a success. I wanted this to replace my Haywire as a strong symmetrical solid that reads the lanes earlier than most symmetrical balls but still continue down lane. This ball will be good on higher volume medium patterns and longer patterns that still hook in the front. I cannot wait to get more games on this ball.

Layout: 55 x 4.5 x 70

 The new ball in the Storm Master line is the Super Son!Q.  The Super uses the strong
NRG Hybird Reactive Coverstock, same cover used on the Physix, along with the Centripetal HD core.  With the low RG and strong cover the SS digs in early in the midlane but still has good continuation through the pins.  I have the SS below my Physix's and above the IQ tour and original Soniq.  The motion is similar to a Phase II with a smoother backend reaction. The cover is very versatile as I have used it with surface and with step 2 with great results.  I drilled mine 4.5 x 4.5 x 4.5 pin down.
A great ball to the Master line!

Storm Super Soniq Ball Review by PJ Haggerty

The latest addition to the Storm IQ series comes the Super Soniq, and for good reason.  With the Centripetal HD core and the NRG hybrid coverstock (same as the Physix), the Super Soniq fits perfectly underneath the Physix, but above the original Soniq.  This ball gives us a symmetrical, low RG option and is a very strong addition to the line. 

I’ve drilled two of them so far and found success with both.  The first one is a pretty strong layout for me being: 5 x 3 with a 15/16 hole two inches under my axis.  I feel this is the strongest symmetrical ball in my bag.  The response time is very quick, even being a low RG ball.  There must be a good amount of volume on the lane for me to throw this ball, but it rolls great when I can use it.

The second Super Soniq I drilled has gotten more use.  I mapped it out as 5.5 x 5 with no weight hole and a surface of 2000.  I’m able to create more angle with this ball and is more responsive than my Physix, when needed.  The response time is quicker than the Physix, but is not as clean as a Hyroad-X or Idol Pearl.

Overall, the Super Soniq is very low RG and wants to read the lane early, but the NRG, hybrid cover allows the ball to still have a quicker response time down lane.  It’s a must have in tournament and league bags today.
