2 ball storm arsenal...
« on: April 29, 2004, 11:12:47 PM »
Im just bored... so im lookin around for a couple of balls that could be my "go to" or "leauge" equipment for next season, or perhaps this summer for practice.

So far, in my limited search it looks like the X-factor, and the Depth Charge stand up well to just about all conditions.  From light-heavy... any other 2 balls you can think of that might be worth looking into?

Prefferebly low buck, bang for your buck kinda balls... you could probally throw the razor wire in that catagory too.

Just 2 balls, im not lookin to be a rolling proshop here  I like teh storm equpiment since i have started throwing the Duece.

I would opt for the X-Factor and either the Flash Point or Flash Force.  You can get a ton of different looks with both balls.

I would get a Hotwire and Depth Charge or XXX Factor.

Those two should give you pretty good bang and cover a wide spectrum of conditions.

Keeping costs low while getting the best "bang-for-the-buck" while trying to cover most oil patterns, I'd recommend the Hot Rod (for shorter & drier patterns) and Flash Force for oilier lanes (but probably take the cover to 1200 - 1500 matte)

The Duece seems to be a little to strong at times, and i would like something different for next "season"  I bought the duece here second hand, and im to cheap to redrill it.

I like the x-factor because evertying i read about it makes it seem so versitle, and like it would be money well spent.

I will look into the balls mentioned.  I used the ball finder at Storm, and it suggests the Flash Force, Flash Point, and Depth Charge.  I will deffinetly look into one of those 3 balls.

I would consider the Power Charge and the Super Charge. Drill one for a snap reaction(probablt the Charge) and one for a gradual hook(Super).

Smitty8288:.The way storm has them listed, it seems like those two balls would kinda overlap... depending on drilling, they could have compeletly different reactions right?

Looking back at the way storm has their balls listed the Duece covers a wide range of conditions, and is a SOLID reactive, unlike the X-factor Pearl-reactive.  

The duece i have is drilled stacked, if keep the duece.  Which looks like i could use on just about anything i will see in a leauge.  What other ball should i look into getting?  

Im thinking power charge or the depth charge, drilled differently to get different looks on the same conditions.  The Flash Point and Flash force look like great options too... man it difficlut to pick a new ball.

I was looking at both of those... but i figured they would be more suited for a light oil condition.  I dunno... im basically looking for very versitale out of box condition balls for next season.  

So far the...
X-factor
Depth Charge
Super Charge
Flash Point
Flash Force
Power Charge

Are leading in all categorys, i would prefer a solid reactive over a pearl though.
