Electrify BSY Review
« on: May 05, 2023, 11:10:55 AM »
Layout: 4.5 x 3 x 3
Surface: Light 2000 abralon

The Electrify BSY is a new color Electrify Pearl for 2023.  This ball brings back the Circuit Core and the Reactor Pearl coverstock finished with Reacta Gloss.  Very similarly to the Electrify GO, this Electrify BSY is not as shiny out of box with the Reacta Gloss from the factory.  This helps the ball read the oil a little sooner and be more continuous as opposed to as angular.  I was able to test this ball on my typical house pattern. What I found was a cleaner and pretty continuous shape down lane.  Compared to the GO, I found a little smoother motion overall.  It didnt give me a crazy angular backend motion that was more in the GO.  This BSY to me felt more of a benchmark lower end symmetrical ball.  The BSY read the midlane a little stronger overall compared to the more recent Electrify balls and continued better as if it had higher differential in the core.   I can see myself using this on the fresh for a dry house pattern or as a 2nd ball out of the bag when there is a little more oil.  For more  challenging patterns, this should control the lane the best when the pattern is medium to lighter oil or shorter oil conditions.

Just in time for summer Storm releases a new Elecrify. The B-S-Y (Black/Silver/Yellow) again features the Reactor cover and Circuit core. Like many bowlers I feel the color can effect the characteristic of the balls and the B-S-Y to my eyes fit itself between the earlier Electrify releases and the G-O.

I tested the Electrify on the house pattern in my home center. The heat of summer always brings drier lane conditions in my area. The fronts always hook where I bowl but the back part of the lane is almost unrecognizable between summer and winter and getting the ball to not only get through the front but to then control the back-end is key to scoring consistently. The B-S-Y sees just a bit more of the mid-lane than the previous pearl releases in the Hot line, which allows the ball to shape without over-reacting down-lane. I feel this ball will also look good on higher friction surfaces with fresh oil as it does clear the fronts well but it's really good at smoothing out over/under.

The Electrify line is definitely a staple at outperforming their price point so the B-S-Y is a great choice for new bowlers who want to see some performance without having to drop the money to invest in a HP ball right off the bat and it stays useful as you build an arsenal up from it.

Ball Specs:
Storm Electrify B/S/Y Pearl Reactive Cover
Reacta Gloss Polished
Circuit Core (Symmetric)
Layout 4  x 4 with 1.5 Pin Buffer

Bowler Specs:
Right Hand. PAP 5” Over 1/2 up
Rev Rate 300. Tilt 20. Rotation 50.
Speed at release 17

Review:
The Electrify line has always been a good series of balls for me. The Electrify B/S/Y Pearl is no exception. I rolled this ball and was even more pleased with it than expected. The BSY seemed to grip the lane harder than my G/O. This may be due to the color additives or the fact it was a brand new out of box surface. The BSY read the mid lanes perfectly and then made a great move to the pocket and it seemed all my shots looked the same as the ball struck and went through the pins. I would consider this a medium to strong ball. The BSY hooked more than the Surge Purple but less than the Exotic Gem. The Electrify B/S/Y will be a house shot killer at my center during the summer where they seem to thin the oil a bit. I will leave this ball at box surface because it seems to match the core perfectly. The color and scent of the ball are nice as an added touch.

Summary:
The Electrify B/S/Y is a good looking addition to the Electrify Line.
This ball creates a nice entry angle to the pocket.
The Electrify should be a house shot killer.

Review:
The electrify series continues on with the Electrify B-S-Y. If you have enjoyed the electrify series the B-S-Y is a must have. The Electrify B-S-Y will work best on medium to drier THS patterns. The B-S-Y can be used for all types of bowling styles and is a good piece to use with its oob finish. Nothing necessarily fancy here but a good ball to get the job done.

In general I have no concerns regarding the oob Reacta Gloss finish. For me, I generally skuff my pearl pieces with a fresh 4k or 3K by hand to slightly dull the surface. I always suggest to roll the oob finish first to see what the lanes are telling you to do.

For me, the Electrify B-S-Y floats super easy through the front part of the lane and will glide slightly longer than your !Q Tour Ruby. The Electrify B-S-Y will respond sharper to friction and provide more angle. One nice surprise for me is that the Electrify B-S-Y did not overtake the corner downlane and was more in play then I initially anticipated.

The Electrify B-S-Y is a nice addition for any arsenal and you'll likely find a spot in the bag for most medium to dry THS patterns.  I truly recommend this one for your THS conditions where you desire to move easy with the transition.  It's quickly becoming a nice ball to have in the bag.  Please be sure to visit your favorite pro shop today or https://youtube.com/channel/UC1VA-MgFBo9mIZde-G3T11A for more information.

Storm Electrify B-S-Y
Ball Specs: Circuit Core with Reactor Pearl Reactive coverstock - Reacta Gloss finish with medium flare potential
Layout Specs: 30 x 2 1/2 x 60
Tested on: Pro Lane on a higher volume house pattern with a touch of out of bounds outside from 10 out towards gutter.
My take: Having used 4 prior Electrify series balls, I found this one the closest to the prior Electrify hybrid where the G/O - which means Gold / Orange - inside joke of those remember the round table last year - :-) , and other pearls where real late in reaction, even with the short pin and front lower number, it still traveled down the pattern very smooth and not a large jerky motion off of the pattern and going from roll to hook stage. The most recent version the G/O was more jerky off of the pattern and more angular when entering the pocket. Just my thought that the color combo on this ball is closer to the Hybrid and not as much pearl look to it as the G/O has. A little less overall reaction compared to my long time benchmark ball the Roto Grip Hyped Hybrid. Assisted a number of clients which purchasing this ball for the fact that for the price point currently, it out performs any other ball in this price point across all ball lines. Excellent quality for the price - excellent ball to have bowlers set up into from the learn the ball sessions to a league bowler. They will be 100% happy with this ball. Thanks to the Staff and Manager at ABC North Lanes for providing me time on the lanes even during renovations and to my partners SPI, Coolwick and Vise.

The Electrify B-S-Y is a fantastic ball and its a steal for the price. It features the Reactor Pearl Coverstock and the Circuit Core. I never got the chance to throw one of the past Electrify’s but I compared the Electrify BSY to a favorite of mine, the IQ Emerald. I was surely surprised by the ball motion as they were almost identical. Had no trouble making the corner from any angle. If you’re in the market for a ball that won’t stop curving downlane and want it at a low price, this is the one for you!

Lane Conditions: 41ft  28.5ml THS (burn)

Comments:

The Electrify BSY is the newest entrant into Storm’s Hot Line. The BSY is following in the successful footsteps of the Electrify Pearl, G/O, and Solid. The Reactor Pearl coverstock gives the BSY a clean look through the front part of the lane; however, the medium RG found in the Circuit Core gives this ball a little pep in it step off the end of the pattern. I drilled my BSY 4.75x3.75x2.75 2LS to match my G/O, and I see a few differences between the two balls. The BSY seems to give me a little more length through pattern and picks up 3-4ft later than my Electrify G/O. I often see different reaction given color differences, but I have also put a few games on my Electrify G/O. The BSY gives me a little more angle off the end of the pattern whereas the G/O is earlier and more overall. I seem to be able to cover more boards with my Electrify G/O; however, I think after I put some more games on my BSY it can replace the G/O in my bag. Both of these balls were finished with Reacta-Gloss which I typically do not like, but I do like it on these two balls because it helps push my breakpoint further downlane.
 If you are looking for a lower-to-medium level ball that will still give you punch on the backend at a lower price point, this ball definitely needs to be taken into consideration.

The Electrify B-S-Y is a classic example of Storm’s successful pursuit of improving your game. Built on the impressive performance of the Circuit Core, and Reactor Pearl Coverstock, Storm has created another winning Hot Series combination with the Electrify B-S-Y. So, let’s take a closer look at why The Electrify B-S-Y is a strong contender to put in any arsenal.

Being a higher speed/low rev player, I count on a core that provides a stable and predictable motion to keep me in my comfort zone. And for me, the roll phase is the most essential motion to carry results and where the Circuit Core excels. The Circuit Core has a smooth sweeping motion provides a clear picture of when the Electrify B-S-Y enters the roll phase. And that allows me to make the correct adjustments without the guesswork. Further, I liked the Circuit Core has plenty of impact power at the pins. And it has good continuation through the pin deck for a lightweight, symmetrical core. So, overall the Circuit Core has been around for a long time, and its success continues in the Electrify B-S-Y.

The Reactor Pearl Reactive Coverstock on the Electrify B-S-Y pleasantly surprised me. I expected to see the same results as I did the Electrify Pearl and the Electrify G-O, but this was not the case, and other than the color mixture, I can’t explain why. But I like how the B-S-Y was cleaner through the front part of the lanes than the Electrify Pearl and had a longer and smoother motion than the Electrify G-O. Please keep in mind that factory finishes rarely work for me, so I surfaced my B-S-Y with 2000-grit Abralon before I started bowling. Nonetheless, the Reactor Pearl coverstock performed well all night for my straighter and higher-speed game. And as the conditions began to break down, the Reactor Pearl kept getting better. So whether early on playing straight up second arrow or late night and moving my angles in, I liked the consistency and reliability of this Reactor Pearl mixture. And the only caveat I would add is to surface the Reactor Pearl to your game to obtain the best results!

In conclusion, Storm has added another winner to their Hot Series with the Electrify B-S-Y. The B-S-Y is smooth, consistent, and predictable. And those attributes make the B-S-Y an excellent choice for many styles of bowlers. And if you are a higher-speed, low-rev player like me, you will find the B-S-Y is a perfect choice to add to your arsenal that will bring results to your game. So stop into your local Storm VIP Pro shop today and add this low-cost weapon to your arsenal. The Electrify B-S-Y is worth it!

Electrify B/S/Y is the newest addition to the Hot Line. If you liked the electrify pearl, you're gonna love the B/S/Y. Typically, these darker pours of previous covers are a little earlier and smoother overall than their lighter colored predecessors. If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, pick up an Electrify B/S/Y now at your local pro shop.

Ball Specs:
Storm Electrify B-S-Y
Reacta Gloss Reactorâ„¢ Pearl Reactive
Weight Block: Circuitâ„¢ Core (Symmetrical)
Color: Black/Silver/Yellow

Review:
This is one of those staple balls we look forward coming into our shop for many reasons. The color and fragrance are great (yes this matters to a novice bowler looking to step up from a Tropical Surge or a first ball purchase of something a bit more than “entry level”).  This ball also serves many purposes for the traditional league bowler as well as seasoned tournament veteran. The Electrify B-S-Y could be used to fill the gap for a traditional league bowler who either does not have a symmetrical piece of equipment or has not yet experienced a pearl coverstock to help stay to the right part of the lane on those nights where you may run into some dry conditions. This ball is also a must have for the seasoned tournament veteran who needs a ball to get through the dry conditions late in a block without having to move against the ball return. We drilled this ball with our normal layout: tweener, 350-375 revs, 16.5mph, layout of choice is 4x4x2 (pin is above bridge). For us it provides us with all the above. In times where a thunder line ball is too much, look no further than an Electrify.

Review:
Looking for a ball that would more bang for your buck than a tropical surge? Looking for a ball that is great when the lanes are fried at the end of a tournament, and you aren’t sure what you should be throwing? Look no further than the Electrify B-S-Y. This ball is great for that new bowler who wants their next ball, or the tournament bowler that can’t seem to find the right ball for the end of a tournament where the lanes have become a real challenge. Not to mention the color, this ball really stands out on the shelf and going down the lane. I drilled this ball pin down to create a smoother motion, I enjoyed the shape I got out of it so much I decided to drill a second one more aggressive with a pin up layout. Make sure you pick up yours today.

The Electrify BSY is an updated version of the Electrify GO, which makes it a great option for those looking for a strong-arcing backend reaction on medium oil conditions. The BSY has enough midlane traction to handle the upper ends of medium oil, though I certainly would not deploy it on true heavy or long oil patterns; that's where options such as the DNA or Summit come into play. I did find the BSY surprisingly strong, just as I did with the GO – it is a bit too strong for light or short oil patterns. I had to switch to a Hustle Camo for those.

Dual Angle Layout: 60 x 4 x 40
Pin Buffer Layout: 4 x 5 x 2 3/8

Another great option in the Electrify line up. This ball is everything you would expect from a entry level bowling ball. Goes super long and just flips off the end of the pattern. Perfect ball for when the heads get really dry or if your new to the game and want a pretty ball that gives you great bang for your buck.

The Electrify B/S/Y features the same low differential and medium RG circuit core found in all the previous versions and is wrapped in reactor pearl. This combo with a fresh new color scheme provides a smoother and controllable option on lighter to medium volume conditions. The B/S/Y for me is going to be a great option to play off of my !Q Tour Ruby when I need something similar strength wise but a slightly cleaner and faster shape. The Electrify B/S/Y is now available at any Storm VIP Pro Shop!
