I don't own one, but everybody else and their mom has it: Special Agent. Apparently it's quite the jem.

To simply answer your question... a must have is a Special Agent. I also really think a T-Road Pearl is a must have.  I have both and dig em'!

Special Agent, T-Road pearl or Shift depending on what reaction you are looking for

The shift doesn't reallyt act like a particle as it only has 2% of particle load in it.  The ball is pretty strong and hadles oil pretty good.  Not a Heavy oil ball, but will work on Medium-Heavy conditions

I could actually see the Agent as being a good ball to try.  

Question, what type of reaction are you leaning towards?  You say you play on wood lanes, which ball/balls of the ones that you have now are you using most of the time?

CZ lets not get to carried away there.  May other companies make very good bowling balls.  Hammer Black widow and Columbia Action are both amazing balls.  And Storm is not the only company that uses proven technology.  If memory serves me right M80, Super flex are very proven. So if I were you look at what other companies have they could surprise you.  Unless you get paid to throw a certain name I would try a little bit of everything.

And back to the post at hand, coach I would look at something like the spitfire.  The ball is money hense all the storm guys use them.  Also it looks like you got a lot of surface in your arsenal this could be good.

I would also suggest the Agent.  I bowl mostly on wood lanes and the Agent has been my go to ball this year.  Really clean through the front, good read in the midlane and strong arc on the back....very consistent and predictable.  If you're looking for a little more of a skid/flip reaction then I would suggest the Spitfire or Fired Up.

I've been lucky long enough...now I'd like to get good.

I think CZ is just responding to the current trend in the last few days of Ebonite people coming in the Storm forum and talking trash for no reason.
