Really this ball is just wicked. When the lanes get dry this one is a ultimate weapon. Finding its way through the heads seems almost effortless even on the driest of conditions. When it comes off the end of the pattern it turns left and goes through the pins like they aren't even there. It makes such awesome angle and keeps so much energy at the pins its amazing.

The Turbine core strikes up another winner in the punch out!

If your house doesn't like to put out oil and you always find your equipment burning up or checking up early this is a great one to consider!

Lots of use and a great rolling ball at a value price point, cant beat it!

Layout 50x4-1/4x75

Ball Speed 15-16 mph

Storm Punch Out by Brian Watson

The Punch Out is Pearl Version of the Wipe Out in the Storm's Hot line.  I drilled mine 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 x 2 1/2 or 40 x 4 3/4 x 40.  The reason I chose this drilling was to try and slow down the response time when this ball sees the friction.  The Punch Out is very angular down lane off of the spot.  The drilling did just that for me, as the ball is very strong at the breakpoint but controllable.  I have used this ball on house shots and sports conditions.  But on house shots I need to wait till 2nd or 3rd game as it is too strong on the fresh.  Same for the sport shots, when the pattern transitions and blends out and I need to get left this is where the Punch Out shines.  As I able move in and have plenty of recovery and hitting power.  Very good and strong ball for the price point.

Ball review of the Storm Punch Out
World Wide Release Date: May 13, 2014

Surface: 1500 polished  (out of box)

Bowler info: Michelle Crews (female)
PAP: 5" right and 1 1/2" up
Ball Speed: 16 mph

Ball info
Layout: 45 x 4 x 65
Pattern: Various
Compared to HyRoad Pearl at 3000 polished

After receiving the information regarding the Storm Punch Out I was on the edge of my seat waiting to drill this ball up. Ever since I was signed to Storm amateur staff I have been waiting to find a ball that could replace my Roto Grip shatter and I definitely found it in this ball. The layout we chose for this ball was 45 x 4 x 65. For this video I was throwing it out of the box 1500 polished but since I was out at Queens I have had it at 2000 abralon and that ball does the trick. All things considered it is in the Hot line of our Storm lineup, but this ball really performs like a midrange Pearl. Compared to the HyRoad Pearl my Punch Out is a hair more angular down the lane, so if my HyRoad Pearl (for some reason) stops kicking the corners, the Punch Out becomes my ball change. Also, I'll add that since I've done the videos I got the Optimus and even though the Optimus is a high end pearl and the Punch Out is a low end pearl, in my hand they make a similar shape and really play off each other quite well especially since my Punch Out has some surface making it a hair more aggressive then intended.

My layout: 4 3/8 x 5 1/8 x 2
My PAP: 4 1/2 over 1 1/4 up

I don’t remember why but the Punch Out from Storm sat in my car for a long time without me using it. It might have got lost in the shuffle because I sometimes drill a lot of different balls at once, and on top of that I still use older balls that I like a lot such as the IQ Tour Solid and the Marvel S. Then one day I went to shoot the video for the Punch Out and I struck the first 9 times I threw the ball that day.  I wonder if that was a fluke so I took the ball to league that night, on a completely different pattern, and I had one of my best nights in the summer league.  I couldn’t believe how good this ball rolled, and how hard it hit the pins. Needless to say this ball now comes with me to every tournament.

What is amazing about the ball is it allowed me to square up, because I was able to trust that the ball would go through the heads and mid lane without me forcing it. Once it hit the back ends it stored so much energy it crushed the pins.

The price point on this ball is amazingly cheap when you match it to its performance. This ball as well as the Wipe Out is a perfect fit for parents looking for an upgrade for their kids that aren’t quite old enough or good enough to throw $200 bowling balls. It is perfect for someone looking to upgrade from the ball that they won in a have a ball league. At the same time this is a great ball for the scratch tournament bowler. This ball is a sleeper just like the Fringe was. It will perform well for many different bowlers, so I feel it belongs on the list the next time you’re thinking about buying a bowling ball.
